About Hebrew Language

Hebrew is an ancient Semitic language that was revived into modern use around the end of the Nineteenth century, with the effort initiated by Eliezar Ben-Yehuda.'Ivrit' can be interpreted to mean 'boundary crosser', because the ancient Hebrews crossed social boundaries as they organized their nation.The search for cognates in English can be amusing and revealing (behemoth, leviathan, and more).
