Does the Hebrew language still matter in the global world we are living in? What is the role of Modern Hebrew vs. Prayer's Hebrew? What is the place of the Hebrew language with regards to Israel? And is it, or could it be, a living bridge between Israel and the Jewish communities around the world? During our session, we will try to answer these questions and more, together with some practical tools of how to teach Hebrew. Hebrew, I will argue, is not only a mother tongue or a national language, but it is, first of all, a language of the people.
