Why study Hebrew? Historically, the original Bible was written in Hebrew. Almost the entire Old Testament was written in Hebrew during the thousand years of its composition! Nowadays, Modern Hebrew is spoken in Israel. Israel is one of the leading countries in technological breakthroughs and medical innovations. Israeli scientists have been winners of numerous Nobel prizes in recent years.
Politically, the tension between Israel and neighboring countries and peoples has fascinated the media for many years, and learning the languages of the region, including Hebrew, is invaluable to anyone who wants to pursue a career in government/diplomatic service and to deeply understand the various sides of the conflict. Other career opportunities for Hebrew and Israel Studies include: international business, marketing, translation, journalism, travel, teaching, etc.
Hebrew and Israel Studies at UD is a lot of fun! Students who benefit from dynamic courses offered by a dedicated and expert faculty will find the Hebrew and Israel Studies program at the University of Delaware to be rewarding on so many levels: Hebrew language courses on campus rigorously address the four language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing, while at the same time, focus on Israeli culture through various media. On campus and abroad, Israel Studies courses provide ample opportunity to immerse yourself in Israeli culture, by exploring its rich literature, film, history, politics, society and more! Hebrew and Israel Studies courses may be taken to fulfill requirements for a minor in Jewish Studies, including a minor in “Jewish Studies with Language”. See more information on the Jewish Studies webpage.

Hebrew is one of the world’s oldest languages, the language of the Bible, and—according to tradition—the language G-d used to create the universe! Yet until recent modernity (about 120 years ago), Hebrew was only in used in liturgy and by scholars. Miraculously, as the idea of returning to Israel gained traction, Hebrew once again became a living language. Today, there are over 9 million Hebrew speakers around the world. Do you want to be one of them? If so, join us for this class!
Get acquainted with Modern Hebrew as spoken in Israel! No previous knowledge is required! Learn how to conduct basic conversations, how to read and write, and the foundations of the Hebrew grammar, all in an enjoyable and student-centered atmosphere. With Hebrew language courses, you can fulfill your language requirement, minor in “Jewish Studies with Language”, and more!
In this course, we continue developing speaking, listening, reading and writing. The student is expected to be comfortable using the present tense to discuss (orally and in writing), listen or read about a variety of topics concerning the present, such as the University, Food and Family. Only minimal knowledge of past tense is expected in the beginning, since the past tense is a major grammatical topic this semester. Some topics that will be covered this semester include being able to discuss body parts in detail and one’s external appearance; aches and pains; describe one’s activities throughout the week; tell the time; and talk about the past. Grammatically, we will extend our knowledge of verbs in the present tense and concentrate on learning a variety of past tense patterns. We will be exposed to texts, song and video throughout the semester.
Prerequisite: Hebrew 106 or equivalent. Students who had 9-10 years of Hebrew day-school (i.e., up to 10th grade) are usually also at the right level (a placement interview is required in those cases).
