Beginning Hebrew I

HEBR 101
Fall 2024
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Course Cluster and Certificates: Christianity Studies

In the beginning, there was an old Hebrew language that was dead in the 19th century and then revived into a modern language. In this course you will begin your journey into a fascinating language that is used to read ancient as well as modern texts. From reading with vowels, to reading without vowels, from handwriting in script to typing in Hebrew (so that you will be able to use social media), Hebrew has always had something special and unique to offer. Students will not only be introduced to all aspects of reading, writing, and speaking the language, but also will be exposed to the language as embedded in its cultural context. To meet that end, students will attend the series of Contemporary Israeli Voices 2024, which brings to campus the most diverse and contemporary cultural voices as well as converse with native speakers over Lunch and Learn meetings. Those extra cultural events account for the additional half credit (with a total of 1.5 credit for this course). This course counts toward the minor in Jewish and Israel Studies.
