The program will offer: Elementary Modern Hebrew II, Conversational Israeli Hebrew, Book of Job, Romantic Love in the Bible, The History of the Jewish People, American Jewish History, 20 th Century Jewish History and Thought, and Literature of the Holocaust. Elementary Modern He- brew for the second semester is designed to teach major lan- guage skills: listening, speak- ing, reading and writing, and to introduce the student to Israeli culture and Jewish civilization. First semester Hebrew or its equivalent is a prerequisite. The course is open to students and mem- bers of the community who have had some background in Hebrew, equivalent to one semester. This course will be offered in three sections. Sec- tion i will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. in CL1,218. Sec- tion 2 will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. in ENGR, 227. Section 3 will meet on Tues- days and Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:20 p.m. in CL1,218.
