Unprecedented in its historical importance, Hebrew is a language with an unusual and fascinating history. One of the world’s oldest languages, Hebrew nearly fell out of common use until a great revival in the 19th century. Today, the language is of great historical, religious, and cultural relevance, and is spoken by 9 million people worldwide. Hebrew is one of two official languages in Israel, and it is spoken by 7 million people throughout the land. Take your Hebrew to Israel and visit the holy city of Jerusalem, float in the Dead Sea, and dance the night away in the fast-moving city of Tel Aviv. Whether you’re learning Hebrew to connect to your religion, strengthen business connections, or for academia, this relevant and learner-friendly language opens up a world of possibility.
