Is Hebrew at the Center?

Nov 01, 2011

By Arnee R. Winshall

Admittedly, I am a language junky. I find nothing more exciting than being able to go to a foreign country and talk to people in their own language instead of their having to talk to me in my language. (I have always been bothered by the measure of arrogance and inherent limitation associated with the view we, as Americans, have developed that the whole world should and will learn to speak English.) Of all the languages I can speak, understand, and read none share the status and importance of Hebrew.
