"I enjoy to study on Israel Institute and have a really good teachers who are very helpful,professional and make lessons very interesting.My dream to be able to read Bible in original language come true 😀"
"I was looking for Biblical Hebrew course and I chose what Israel Institute of Biblical Studies has to offer. I have completed two levels and I am currently in my third level. The teachers know how to deliver the subject and how to engage with the students. The small size of the class also helps to create a familiar environment for the students. This is a tremendous advantage as everything is done online. There's also weekly webinar that everyone can join, which would enrich the knowledge about the Hebrew language, Israel, or Judaism in general. I really enjoy what I've experienced so far and I believe Israel Institute of Biblical Studies will keep delivering the best for their students."

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.

Education

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.

Professional Experience
