Forum Response

By Benjamin D. Sommer

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2006

Responding to a series of articles in which Judaic Studies professors discuss their respective Jewish studies undergraduate programs, the author notes a divergence in the area of Hebrew language requirements. He discusses the advantages and disadvantages of linguistic requirements for undergraduate majors in general, and discusses how various areas of Jewish studies in particular are served (or, in some cases, affected adversely) by a high level of Hebrew language requirement.
