HEBREW - AN ANCIENT LANGUAGE REVIVED Langfocus (3.19)
YIDDISH, LADINO AND JEWISH ENGLISH: Sarah Bunin Benor, JDOV Talks 2018 (13.17) With the exceptions of Yiddish and Ladino, Jews have tended to pick up the local language after a migration and distinguished themselves through the use of Hebrew words and other unique features, yielding languages like Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-French, and Judeo-Malayalam. American Jews have continued this tradition, using hundreds of Hebrew and Yiddish words and other features that distinguish them from their non-Jewish neighbours and from other Jews. In contrast to some critics’ view of American Jews as the first Diaspora community without a Jewish language, this talk makes the case for “Jewish English,” one of several 21st-century Jewish languages.

THE STORY OF HEBREW AND THE STORY OF JUDAISM Tikvah Fund 2017 (1.12.03) “All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”
So mused Mark Twain in the nineteenth century. One such “secret” surely resides in the immortal language that the Jewish people kept alive—and that in many senses kept them alive—throughout their history. In his new book, The Story of Hebrew, Dartmouth College's Lewis Glinert busts the myth that Hebrew was a "dead" language in the centuries between the ancient dispersion and the birth of Zionism. On June 21, 2017, Professor Glinert visited The Tikvah Center in New York City for a wide-ranging discussion highlighting the many forms of Hebrew's survival and renewal throughout the Jewish history.
