Primary Instructor:


Elementary Classical Hebrew I, which is offered in the prior fall semester, are designed to equip the beginning student with the basic tools necessary for reading the Hebrew Bible (or Tanakh or Old Testament). The 101-102 sequence introduces the student to the basic grammar of Biblical or Classical Hebrew, its morphology (the study of word formation), phonology (the study of speech sounds), and syntax (the study of clause and sentence formation).

In addition to mastering the grammar, MELANG 102, like 101, requires the student to control a sizable working vocabulary of Classical Hebrew, as competency in grammar and lexicon best facilitates the goal of reading the Hebrew Bible. An accurate translation of the biblical text is the ultimate focus of the entire four-course sequence (101-102, 201-202) and the translation is practiced from the start of 101 to the end of 202.

Class Format:

As a DC (Distance due to COVID) course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning. However, students will need to be available for virtual class meetings at their scheduled times.
