We will continue to explore the following:  

  • the influence Hebrew had on Harvard, Yale, Columbia and other American educational institutions
  • what George Washington and Thomas Jefferson felt about Jewish people
  • interesting mistranslations of some original Biblical texts
  • how the revival of the Hebrew language (it was never dead!!) developed, and how “new” vocabularies were created to keep up with the ever-changing world
  • and more!

Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary to enjoy this class!
