Modern Hebrew and Israel Studies Program

Welcome to the Modern Hebrew and Israel Studies Program at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization, UW - Seattle. Whether you are interested in Near Eastern Studies, Jewish Studies, or just learning a language, Modern Hebrew may be for you. We offer instruction of elementary and intermediate Modern Hebrew, as well as an array of text classes for students at a more advanced level. Our topical courses on Israeli culture (taught in English) and on Hebrew literature in translation are regularly cross-listed with Comparative Literature, English, and Jewish Studies.

Students wishing to complement their work with study of the Bible and/or Rabbinics will find a range of courses at UW covering Hebrew from across millennia.

Explore this site for information on our program and find useful links to other resources.
