Hebrew (Modern)


Modern Hebrew is the main official language of the State of Israel. It is a continuation and expansion of Hebrew in its various historical manifestations, as well as being inextricably bound up in Zionism and modern Israel. The units of study offered facilitate 'language in use' as it is spoken in Israel, as well as issues of contemporary Israeli society and culture.
