Beth Broadway
"It has been 45 years since my college classes in Hebrew and Greek, so I had a little trouble figuring out where I should start. Fred and Lewis and all the rest whose names I sadly don't remember have been so patient in helping me and I think I'm now plugged in where I need to be. Instructors are patient and clearly accustomed to the unique challenges of the older adult learner. "
"I start my day with studying my Hebrew and it is my favorite part of the day. The teachers are patient and know it takes a while to learn and encourage us along the way. "
"Great instructors who really know the material and are able to present it in an understandable way. Interactive"

A Few Words About Me

Beth has been teaching Hebrew for many years to students ages 5 to 88 online and in person, including in a couple of local synagogues. She also teaches Israeli culture and Jewish drama classes and loves to write plays in every language. All ancient stories are dramatic if just find the right angle on the plot! Beth believes that every new language you learn opens a bridge to another world.


She holds an MA in Jewish History from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with an emphasis on the Second Temple Period, and a BA in Jewish Studies with an emphasis on Hebrew. Her research primarily focuses on ancient religious texts and what they can tell us about ancient religious beliefs and practices, especially in the pseudepigrapha and other non-canonical texts.  Her thesis is titled, “The Development of Jewish Martyrdom from the Exodus to the Maccabees.” She also loves to focus on the “neglected” stories of the Bible in Judges and Kings.
