The Hebrew language is the core of Jewish life in many ways. In this session we will explore a historical perspective of the evolution of Hebrew in Israel while examining the cultural and spiritual challenges we face and how those are reflected in the language we speak. Learn about how Hebrew serves as a performative utterance in the Torah, the Diaspora, and in relation to Zionism, as we work through the tension between the secularization and the sanctity of the Hebrew language. Explore the significance and context of new Hebrew words while thinking about Hebrew as our connector to Zionism and the Jewish people.
