What will it take to make serious headway with the teaching of Hebrew? Few tasks are more challenging for day schools. Whatever your role in leading and supporting schools, join a conversation between researchers, practitioners and funders about what we need to know about Hebrew that, if we knew it, would lead to a breakthrough in Hebrew teaching and learning. Help set a powerful research agenda for the improvement of Hebrew language learning that takes into account the cultural, ideological and practical challenges and builds on the profound insights so far generated.
