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!
