WHC Books: A Look Into the Hebrew Language

The Story of Hebrew by Lewis Glinert and The Language of Angels: A Story About the Reinvention of Hebrew by Richard Michelson will guide our discussion of the Hebrew language from biblical to modern times.

Read either or both. The Story of Hebrew explores the extraordinary hold that the Hebrew language has had on Jews and Christians, who have given it a symbolic power far beyond that of any other language in history. The Language of Angels, a children’s picture book, won the 2018 Sydney Taylor Book Award in the Younger Readers category.

Borrow a copy from WHC's libraries, or purchase your own through WHC's Mitzvah Mall. Every purchase made through the Mitzvah Mall helps to support the WHC Hunger Project!
