The modern Hebrew program at Harvard strives to address the needs of our diverse student body by offering four levels of classes: Beginners, intermediate, advanced and a highly advanced seminar course.

Grammar, morphology, textual diversity, and cultural aspects of modern Hebrew are presented in all course levels. Textbooks and grammar workbooks were developed by our team especially for Harvard students. Innovative technological tools, such as tailor-made digital grammar- and textbooks, flashcards, and books-on-tape were created with the Harvard Academic Technology Group. Exposure to Israeli culture is achieved by using diverse means, such as current media sources, movies, songs, and presentations by guest speakers.

Whether you are looking to fulfill the Harvard College language requirement, read original materials in modern for your research, or simply learn more about the State of Israel and the culture of the many different ethnic groups who call it home, come and join us, we’d love to show you around!
