Why It’s Important To Know Hebrew

Hebrew — knowledge of the language of the Jewish people is essential.

Jews pray in Hebrew, and therefore should know the words they say.

The Torah is in Hebrew, and it’s better to understand it in its original form.

Hebrew is the international language of the Jewish people and in all the places I’ve been around the world, Hebrew works better than English.

And…many of the blog posts I simply don’t have time to write, are based on sources in Hebrew. These stories would fascinate you, yet I simply do not have the time to translate them all for you.

For example – Maariv reports on how the JNF has capitulated to Leftist demands to stop planting trees in the Negev, despite the land being 100% State of Israel land and upheld by the courts. Source (in Hebrew)

The Jewish woman from Bat-Yam who started going out with “David”…and his strange behavior caused her to have him investigated by private investigators. They revealed that he was an Arab…married with 4 children. And her response? Don’t tell anyone, so she can continue her relationship with him…she honestly believes she can continue this way. Source (in Hebrew)

High School students expelled for having setting up a table for students to put on tefillin. The Secular high school in Haifa (no, not Modiin) said they were not expelled for the tefillin, per se, but for arrogant behavior. Source (in Hebrew)

Merrill Lynch analyst says Bezeq Telecom stock will rise 47% Source (in Hebrew) Bezeq?! Mashiach must be here…

MK Dr. Ahmad Tibi; A Jew that expects an [Israeli] Arab to sing the “Hatkiva” [Israe's national anthem] is either an idiot or crazy, or he is MK [David] Rotem [Yisrael Beiteinu party] or MK [Michael] Ben-Ari [Ichud Leumi] (Haaretz, 10 AM today)

So what can we expect from Israeli Arabs without being considered crazy?
