Syllabus Summary

  • Nice to meet you

    Our general introduction. People always want to make a good first impression, so in this class we’ll read a text that asks how do you make a good first impression.

  • Any volunteers?

    In all societies people volunteer for various jobs. We’ll look at volunteering in Israeli society and read an article about it.

  • Israeli money

    The way in which money is designed tells us a lot about a nation’s history and culture. Which people are printed on Israeli banknotes? And, perhaps, is it time to update those faces?

  • Why a tomato is called a tomato (but in Hebrew!)

    From where did the Israeli tomato originate? And how did it get the name “agvanya”? This lesson will examine how new words are developed in modern Hebrew.
