“Judaism is not just a religion. It’s a rich culture with a beautiful, ancient language that not only lives in the Torah and our Prayer Books, but is also the language that connects Jews all over the world, and we want to bring together everyone connected to the Hebrew language”
– Dr. Simcha Leibovichm, Founding President of the Council
The Council established and continues its ongoing support of NAHET, the National Association of Hebrew Teachers. The association promotes seminars and professional development programs for its members and disseminates information and curricula through its digital platforms.
The committee plans and produces Hebrew Celebration – Hagigah Ivrit – in several locations in North America, soon to be an annual event. The committee also works to build a series of regional steering committees including representatives of local organizations.
The committee works to raise the profile of the Council and its work in the philanthropic space in order to ensure the necessary resources to fund its activities, programs and infrastructure.
The committee works to ensure effective communication with all stakeholders, effective public relations, ongoing support and build out of the Council’s digital platforms, and successful marketing and recruitment material to expand the reach and impact of the Council.
The committee works to identify individuals and organizations active in the fields of education, organizational leadership, philanthropy, advocacy and the like that have Hebrew either as a primary or secondary component of their personal or institutional missions. This ongoing work of mapping also includes bringing together individuals and groups to create collaborative efforts that further the mission of the Council and the field.
