Malka Kotzer

Biblical Hebrew Teacher

A Few Words About Me

The meaning of the Hebrew word ‘Torah’ is ‘to teach.’ I am a professor of Biblical Hebrew, an instructor of new teachers, and a translator of Spanish course material for students and teachers. What I love most about teaching are those seconds of silence just after I have explained a difficult passage in the Hebrew Bible when the students suddenly realize that an already familiar the text has a new and interesting interpretation.
