Ivriyon: Hebrew Immersion Institute for Day School Educators, June 29–July 23, 2015


The Ivriyon program strengthens the Hebrew language proficiency skills necessary for teaching in Hebrew by way of peer teaching, participant presentations, and textual study. A review of Hebrew grammar and a focus on vocabulary expansion are also integral to the program. Ivriyon is run in partnership with the Hebrew Language program at The Jewish Theological Seminary.
