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 approach to Hebrew at Pluralistic Rabbinical Seminary is two-fold: admitting students with a high level of proficiency, and focusing their Hebrew skills in the way that will be most needed in the future.
Our Hebrew Language Requirement
In order to enter our program, students must take an online placement exam prior to their admissions interview. At the admissions interview, students whose Hebrew is not yet strong enough but who otherwise would make ideal candidates will be presented with options to improve their skills to the degree that they may enter the program.
Potential students can take a practice exam which we will post in the coming months.
Please note that this practice exam is not the same exam we use, nor is the web experience in this sample the same as the tool we use for our proctored placement exam. It is purely to give potential students an opportunity to experience Hebrew placement and to receive feedback on their skill set.
