New US Hebrew teachers group holds first conference

Hebrew teachers across North America came together this week to take part in the first annual conference of the National Association of Hebrew Teachers in Newark, New Jersey.

The professional network of teachers was created to address the needs and professional growth of the tens of thousands of people teaching Hebrew in schools, synagogues, community centers and youth movements in North America, and to unite them under one parent organization to advance the study of the Hebrew language.

“Our vision and one of our goals is to bring back the Hebrew language to American Jewry,” Dr. Simcha Leibovich, representative of the WZO Executive in North America and a founder of the Council for Hebrew Language and Culture and the teacher’s association told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.
