Four Week Intensive Hebrew

Tantur Ecumenical Institute will be hosting our next Hebrew-language program from July 4th-July 29th, 2016.  



This four-week intensive Modern Hebrew course (Ulpan Level Alef) is comprised of 100 hours of Hebrew instruction. The course is best suited to those graduate and doctoral students who have an intermediate-level knowledge of Biblical Hebrew and would like to transition to Modern Hebrew.  While the course is at a beginners level, it is accelerated and so the participants should have an understanding of the  basic grammatical structure of biblical Hebrew. Students are taught by qualified Ulpan instructors. The course is held at Tantur Ecumenical Institute in Jerusalem.
