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.

The Ivriyon program is subsidized by a grant from the AVI CHAI Foundation and is cosponsored by the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education. There is a $50 application fee, and $250 registration fee. Tuition is subsidized and out-of-town participants receive free accommodations in JTS dormitories.
