The Learning Environment
We offer four courses in Modern Hebrew. These courses aim to present students with the basis of Modern Israeli Hebrew and to assist them in developing the fundamental linguistic skills of Hebrew reading, writing, oral comprehension and conversation, as well as create an appreciation of Israeli/Jewish culture. Pure beginners should sign up for Hebrew 101, offered every Fall. Students wishing to study Hebrew at a level above the introductory level must take a placement test before registration in order to be placed correctly. Students benefit from actively interacting with the instructor both in the classroom and during regular office hours, in an environment encouraging and supporting active and effective learning of language.
About Our Facilities
Many of our classes and event are held in the Samuel Friedman Library in 708 Clemens. This is the geographical heart of our department, featuring books related to all areas of the Jewish experience that foster the passion for inquiry that is central to the Jewish tradition. This provides an intimate setting for students to get to know each other and their professors. That distinguishes Jewish Studies courses from those in other departments.
