The History of Hebrew (Ivrit) Tuesdays 10:30AM - 11:45AM Starting June 4 (Eight Weeks)
When exactly did Hebrew first appear? Was it spoken in the Garden of Eden? When did it cease to be a spoken language? Known as lashon hakodesh (a holy tongue), Hebrew has a remarkable history. From Paleo-Hebrew to Biblical Hebrew to modern Ivrit, this course will study all aspects of the Hebrew language: its history, linguistic changes, use in liturgy, as characters for other languages, to its reintroduction as the spoken language of the State of Israel. Instructor: Marden Paru: Fee $70.
