Why does Hebrew matter?

In answering this question, Hebrew Roots, Jewish Routes addresses the many ways

engagement with Hebrew enriches Jewishness‚"‚€‚"culturally, religiously, ethnically.

Whether you know Hebrew or not, linguist and cultural anthropologist Jeremy Benstein takes us on a journey into the deeper significance of Hebrew in the life of Jews and

Judaism. Since fluency is a distant goal for so many, Benstein shows us another approach: engaging with Hebrew by focusing on the three-letter Hebrew roots that are the building blocks of the language, seeing these "nuggets of knowledge" as a vehicle to enriching our connection to Judaism and its values.
