Rx for Hebrew in American Jewish Communities

By Jonathan Paradise

Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life, Spring 2011

The author argues that while Hebrew in Israel is alive and well, Hebrew in America presents a dismal picture. True, Hebrew language and literature are taught in a great many colleges and universities. And although enrollments of undergraduates and graduate students have declined significantly in recent years, Hebrew still ranks far above most less commonly taught languages. However, it is the place of Hebrew as a living language in our Jewish communities that needs urgent care.
