The Council for Hebrew Language and Culture in North America, the Israel Forever Foundation & the American Zionist Movement invite you to engage in a conversation with Dr. Jeremy Benstein about his book Hebrew Roots, Jewish Routes – A Tribal Language in a Global world.

Dr. Jeremy Benstein’s new book Hebrew Roots, Jewish Routes presents a compelling case for Hebrew as more than a language of sacred texts or daily conversation; it is a vessel for deep values, a connector within the Jewish community across geographic and temporal differences, and an essential building block of identity.

Benstein also introduces “Wordshops” explorations of Hebrew roots that articulate a Jewish concept, presenting how these roots help express Jewish ideas from traditional texts to contemporary usage, binding the people, its language and history together. Benstein earned a BA in linguistics from Harvard, a MA in Judaic

studies from Jerusalem’s Schechter Institute, and a PhD in cultural anthropology from Hebrew University.
