Hebrew in a NFTY Safari

By Harvey Goldberg

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), March 2002

The author explores the use of Hebrew language during a five-week Israel experience for North American Reform Jewish teenagers organized by NFTY (National Federation of Temple Youth). He notes an innate curiousity and positive orientation toward Hebrew among trip participants, but concludes that greater Hebrew language acquisition does not generally occur on the trips. He suggests further study to determine whether Hebrew usage during short-term Israel experiences promotes or inhibits future interest in learning Hebrew.
