In recognition of Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s 70th birthday, Lewis Glinert, professor of Hebrew Studies at Dartmouth and author of “The Story of Hebrew” (Princeton University Press, 2017), will discuss the extraordinary hold that Hebrew has had on Jews and non-Jews alike. Preserved by the Jews across two millennia, Hebrew endured long after it ceased to be a mother tongue, resulting in one of the most intense textual cultures ever known. Part of JCC Author Series and supported by the Kraft-Hiatt Fund for Jewish Christian Understanding.
