Hebrew at the Center is hosting four compelling conversations about Hebrew and the Jewish experience. This second session, co-sponsored by Hebrew College, features Jeremy Benstein, managing editor of 929-English, and Avraham Infeld, founder of the Melitz Institute.

Join Avraham, a world-renowned educator and Jewish leader, and Jeremy, an author and trained linguist, as they discuss their shared passion about Hebrew as an elemental component of identity and a connector between a people and their purpose. Bringing their personal journey’s from growing up in South Africa and the American Midwest to living in Israel as committed Hebraists, Avraham and Jeremy will consider the status of Hebrew in America, the ways in which the language connects Jews to one another in time and space, and possible strategies to make Hebrew more meaningful to more people. Participants will be invited to both enjoy the storytelling talents of these two thoughtful individuals and to post questions that will inform the lively conversation.
