The Hebraist Moment in American Jewish Culture and What it has to Say to us Today

By Alan Mintz

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Spring 2011

author describes the Tarbut Ivrit movement and argues that this existence of an ambitious Hebrew literary culture on these shores is one of the best kept secrets of American Jewry. He states that if we hold some hope for Hebrew to be a critical cultural resource for building the future of American Jewry, then it is crucial to become aware of the existence of the literary and educational creativity that preceded our efforts and come to know its main achievements and personalities.
