"The Hebrew language will go from the synagogue to the house of study, and from the house of study to the school, and from the school it will come into the home and... become a living language."

- Eliezar Ben-Yehuda

Course Description :

Are you planning to visit Israel, do you want to deepen your understanding of the prayers and enjoy Israeli movies? (God willing after Covid19) 

This Hebrew course will consolidate and broaden the understanding of the vocabulary and grammatical structures acquired in the beginners and intermediate I Hebrew courses. Through interactive learning, participants will significantly improve their language skills in order to communicate, read, understand and discuss contemporary Hebrew texts. The readings will expose the deep connection between the ancient sources -words and spirit- and the modern, young and dynamic Hebrew spoken by millions of people in Israel and all around the world.

NEW students will be connected with the instructor prior to the start of classes for a one-on-one telephone conversation with the instructor for an evaluation over the phone to make sure the level is a good fit for a meaningful experience. Please email: to set up your meeting with the instructor.
