Rachel Brady
"At this level, I realize I must re-study grammar in an applicable manner to apply what had been briefly noted in earlier courses. Course content along with the teaching ability of of my instructor, Rachel Brady has made a big impact on my studies."
"Je trouve que la formule avec la possibilité d'imprimer le cours à l'avance est très bien. Cela permet de suivre sans difficulté. Les exercices en devoir qui sont corrigés sur une autre feuille permet de s'ajuster. La possibilité de suivre un webinaire de Haïm Ouisseman suscite la motivation d'avancer et de bien étudier car il y a un objectif à la clé. Le service technique qui nous aide quand on rencontre des difficultés informatiques est fondamental. Je les remercie pour leur travail et leur accueil chaleureux. Je souhaiterais poursuivre en groupe B avec Rachel Brady. Je vous remercie pour tout. Je suis très satisfite."
"C'est incroyable ce cheminement depuis un an; je ne connaissait aucun mot d'hébreu, voir même lire une phrase pour arriver maintenant à célébrer le repas du Seder de Pessah. Toda Rabba להתראות אֵרׅק מׄרמִן"

Teaches Biblical Languages and the Jewish Background of the New Testament

A Few Words About Me

“The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.” (Ps 119.72)

Rachel teaches Biblical languages and the course “Jewish Background of the New Testament” at the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies. She loves teaching anything related to the Bible, especially its ancient languages because it combines her fascination with languages and her biggest passion, the “word of truth” (Ps 199.43). How better to enthuse students about the value of learning biblical languages than by exploring the depths and challenges of the inspired texts themselves? The international and inter-confessional flavor of the campus makes the classroom exchange all the more stimulating.

Education

Rachel holds degrees in Modern Languages (BSc), Theology (“license”, B.A.) and philosophy (“license”, B.A.). She has completed a European Masters in both of the latter disciplines. She is currently attached to a research unit associating religion and philosophy. Her personal focus is on biblical interpretation, with a special emphasis on Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes) and 17th Century philosophy (Blaise Pascal).

Professional Experience

Rachel has over twenty years of teaching experience as well as over ten years teaching languages, eventually serving as Head of Languages in a private school. She has taught biblical languages and biblical studies in a variety of institutions and has worked as an editor, translator, and interpreter.
