Cultural Fluency: The Art of Hebrew Translation

Hebrew, rooted in antiquity with a profound historical legacy, is a linguistic treasure that carries enduring cultural weight. As the language of the Hebrew Bible and a central element in Jewish culture, Hebrew holds a unique position in the history of language itself. Modern Hebrew was revived in the late 19th century and today serves as the official language of the State of Israel.

Today, there are over 9 million Hebrew speakers globally. Although primarily located in Israel, where Hebrew is the official language and used in daily life, Hebrew also holds both linguistic, cultural and historical significance among Jewish communities worldwide. In fact, the Jewish diaspora extends to every corner of the planet, with large communities in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America and Australia. Here, Hebrew is often maintained as a language of identity and heritage.

Fun Facts About The Hebrew Language

Hebrew has many unique and fascinating features, including the following:

  • Ancient Roots

Hebrew’s history is exceptional. Unlike any other language in today’s world, Modern Hebrew is, in fact, a revived version of 3,000-year-old Biblical Hebrew. It owes this resurgence to efforts made in the late 19th century to restore a language on the verge of extinction.

  • A Liturgical Language

For many centuries prior to its revival, Hebrew was only used in liturgical contexts. Hebrew is the language of the Jewish sacred texts, including the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) and many other important religious documents.

  • Numbers

Did you know, each letter in the Hebrew language also represents a number? This unusual alphanumerical system, known as Gematria, assigns a numerical value to each letter or word.

  • Root-Based System

Hebrew is based on a root system. Words are often derived from a three-letter root to which prefixes, suffices, and vowel patterns are then added to change the original meaning.

  • Right To Left

Like many languages, including Arabic, Urdu and Persian, Hebrew is written from right to left. However, its numbers are written from left to right.
