As a result of the great success in its virtual version this summer, Rothberg International School of Hebrew U is happy to announce the opening of a Fall session (Oct. 19 – Dec. 23, 2020) of the highly popular BIBLICAL HEBREW course.

Joining this online course will enable interested students around the world to remain engaged with Hebrew U in Jerusalem, despite COVID-19, while continuing with their degree studies at their home universities.


  • Delve into the phonology and morphology of the Biblical Hebrew language.
  • Cover the fundamentals of syntax of Biblical Hebrew.
  • Read Biblical passages with the aid of a lexicon.


Using modern methods of linguistic instruction, this course is designed to provide you with a sufficient knowledge of Biblical Hebrew grammar, syntax, and vocabulary to read Biblical prose with the aid of a dictionary. Intended for beginners who are students of Hebrew, the Bible, or theology, this course is approximately equivalent in scope to a first-year university course in Biblical Hebrew.
