I absolutely love the Hebrew program at OU. Because the classes are so small, the department really feels like a family. I have friends in all different levels of Hebrew–even some who aren’t in Hebrew classes but are still involved with the Hebrew club. Last night, we had an end-of-semester dinner at Lemon Tree, a local restaurant in Norman, where we ordered our food using only Hebrew. It’s crazy to think that less than a year ago we didn’t even know the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, much less how to form words or conjugate them to order food at a restaurant! I am so grateful to this program, especially to Ori and Yael, the professors in this department, for being such an important part of my last year at OU! If anyone asks me what language to take in the future, I will, without hesitation, recommend that they study Hebrew!
