Why Hebrew, here and now? What is its value for contemporary Americans? In 'What We Talk about When We Talk about Hebrew (and What It Means to Americans)' scholars, writers, and translators tackle a series of urgent questions that arise from the changing status of Hebrew in the United States.

To what extent is that status affected by evolving Jewish identities and shifting attitudes toward Israel and Zionism?

Will Hebrew programs survive the current crisis in the humanities on university campuses?

How can the vibrancy of Hebrew literature be conveyed to a larger audience?

The volume features a diverse group of distinguished contributors, including Sarah Bunin Benor, Dara Horn, Adriana Jacobs, Alan Mintz, Hannah Pressman, Adam Rovner, Ilan Stavans, Michael Weingrad, Robert Whitehill-Bashan, and Wendy Zierler.
