The Hebrew Department at Yeshiva College offers students the opportunity to develop their Hebrew language skills within two tracks. Biblical Hebrew students will learn to understand the grammar and lexicon of the Bible while those in the Language Arts track will develop their proficiency in reading, writing, understanding, and speaking modern Hebrew.
