Jewish Languages

The Jewish Theological Seminary offers a wide array of languages needed for the study of classical Jewish texts and for students to be part of the dialogue with contemporary Jewish communities throughout the world.  Every year JTS offers at least eight levels of Hebrew and several levels of Yiddish.  Depending on the program needs in any given year, additional languages offered can include Akkadian, Aramaic, Judeo-Arabic, Ladino, Syriac, Ugaritic, as well as languages for inscriptional literature.
