Hebrew Mythology Oct 8 - Nov 26 | 24h

  • Starts Oct 8
  • 990 Israeli new shekels

In Modern Hebrew and in contemporary Israeli culture, we can never fully separate קודש from חול - sacred from everyday, religious from secular. The Hebrew language is based on Biblical and religious Hebrew roots, and Israeli culture and language has many layers of religious references. In this course we will explore central concepts and stories in Hebrew, mostly from the Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible). We will learn about: ~ ‎The place of the Tanakh in Israeli culture and society ~ Connections between current political issues and historical Jewish texts ~ The relationship between modern spoken Hebrew and historical religious Hebrew ~ Connections between Jewish mythology and other Near Eastern mythologies We will read Tanakh both in the original Biblical Hebrew and in the controversial and fascinating "translation" into Modern Hebrew. As we explore the texts, we will discuss how the themes that come up are relevant to our lives and to Israeli society today. Themes including: gender, family, monotheism, Jerusalem, love, ethics, and more. Of course, this course is open to all Advanced Level Hebrew students whatever your religious background - whether you're a long time Yeshiva student or completely secular, whether you're Jewish or not. *** Early Bird Price - 990 NIS - Until 10/09 Regular Price - 1090 NIS - Until 01/10 Late Price - 1190 NIS - Until first lesson of the course
