 Course Standards:

The AJU Academic Hebrew Department adopted the language proficiency mode of ACTFEL- (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages). ACTFL standards are defining what students should know and can do at each level of their foreign language class. At each level, there are specific criteria and goals that must be reached in the areas of speaking, reading and writing. The Conversation and Grammar sections are designed to help the students reach the desired level.

*Note: students who are prospects or admitted to continue to AJU Ziegler Rabbinic School must achieve at the end of the summer course a passing grade is 80. Hebrew I is a prerequisite for the Hebrew level II course.


“...for summertime, intensive Hebrew study, there is no other program that gives students a clear, structural understanding of Classical Hebrew grammar like the Ulpan at the American Jewish University. It is these skills that are critical for success in reading Mishnah, Halakhic literature and Tanakhic texts. We encourage all those who are interested in Rabbinical school, or in other Hebrew text study programs, to join us at AJU’s summer Hebrew classes. You won’t be disappointed”
