Do I need to know Hebrew?
All the seminars and workshops within the English Department are conducted in English and student work must be submitted in English. Of course, it's always useful to learn the language of the country you're living in. There are Hebrew classes at the university. Let us know of your interest, and we'll put you in touch.
Please note that while many of the basic Jewish studies courses required by the university are in Hebrew, at least two will be offered in English every year.
