Hebrew Roots, Jewish Routes
A Tribal Language in a Global World
In answering this question, Hebrew Roots, Jewish Routes addresses the many ways
engagement with Hebrew enriches Jewishness""culturally, religiously, ethnically.
Whether you know Hebrew or not, linguist and cultural anthropologist Jeremy Benstein takes us on a journey into the deeper significance of Hebrew in the life of Jews and
Judaism. Since fluency is a distant goal for so many, Benstein shows us another approach: engaging with Hebrew by focusing on the three-letter Hebrew roots that are the building blocks of the language, seeing these "nuggets of knowledge" as a vehicle to enriching our connection to Judaism and its values.
