The week of January 15th, Akiva School celebrated Hebrew Language Week, coinciding with the birth date in the Hebrew month of Tevet of Eliezer ben Yehuda, the driving leader in the revival of the Hebrew language. Throughout this week, our love for the Hebrew language and its proper use in speech, song, reading and writing was explored and expressed through a variety of unique and fun activities, further strengthening our students’ connection to the essential place the Hebrew language holds in the State of Israel as well as in our Jewish heritage, culture and community.
