Join the Revolution

Whether the setting is a day school, a summer camp, or a part-time setting, Hebrew teachers are at the heart of an excellent education. HATC began its work with this focus, and adopted an approach to teaching Hebrew that focuses on developing learners’ authentic ability to function in the language in real life.

HATC has built upon this work, spreading the message through model schools, intensive professional development programming, advocacy and partnerships with thought leaders in a wide range of educational settings.

Today, HATC is a central address for Hebrew and Hebrew language education, bringing together practitioners, funders, academics and committed laity dedicated to transforming Hebrew in North America and beyond.
