Come and get to know our team of teachers through their favorite Hebrew texts! “Shmona Yemey Milah” - one-time workshops of analyzing Hebrew texts. Each workshop will deal with a different text, chosen by the teacher, that the students will be asked to read in advance. During the workshop we will go over new words and grammatical aspects that appeared in this text, we will discuss its content and talk about what it brings up for us. This workshop is suitable for intermediate Hebrew speakers and above. In this workshop we will focus on "Betokh Niar Iton" by Teapacks. This text is a song released in 1993 by the popular band ‘Teapacks’. It is a scathing social commentary set to the tune of a happy Morrocan folk song. The text deals with the way poverty and inequality is seen by the middle class and the media, how one can distance him/herself from the problem while ignoring the signs that they are probably the next in line. Written in the optimism of the early 1990’s the critical aspect of the song was not widely addressed despite it being a hit. Within the context of today, the song is still very relevant and it can teach us about perceptions of poverty and poor people in Jewish Israeli society.
