We know that Hebrew is intimidating for many people. If you have questions about our Hebrew requirement, feel free to email [email protected].
Knowledge of both classical and modern Hebrew is crucial for the rabbis of today and of the future. One’s ability to draw from language is powerful in transmitting thousands of years of Jewish knowledge.
Our Hebrew Language Requirement
Prospective students can test their language skills by taking our online exam. Taking the practice exam is a requirement of admission to PRS, but does not determine whether or not you are admitted. We look at many factors in determining if a student is ready for PRS, Hebrew being only one portion.
This exam will give potential students an opportunity to experience Hebrew practice and to receive feedback on their skills set from our director.
Students who apply for our program but do not take the practice exam will not be admitted.
Gaining Hebrew Skills
In the coming months, we will publish our favorite tools for improving Hebrew in order to participate in our program, which we are calling Concierge Hebrew.
