Hebrew is the only ancient language to have been revived
as a modern spoken language. Today Hebrew still serves as the language
of Judaism, and is also the official language of the state of Israel.
As the original language of the Bible, It has deep roots in Judeo-Christian
culture. Recent world events have converged on the lands of Israel and
its neighboring Arab countries; an understanding of Hebrew can lend to
a greater understanding of our faiths, histories and future.
