I love it too. There's a great balance between information on Hebrew language & grammar, literary style of the text, the culture of the time in which it was written, context of words, etc. It's awesome.



The class is great, for people of any learning style. I am jewish and I am learning things I was never taught, Yoel does a great job, has great patience and good style of teaching.



I could not be happier with the progress I’ve made while learning Biblical Hebrew from Yoel . Before finding Yoel, I had wasted a lot of time and money trying various books, DVD’s, classes and seminars, all promising to make learning Biblical Hebrew easy. Sadly, none of them worked. Then, I found Yoel. Yoel tailored the classes to my pace of learning. He used a textbook and the Tanach as the foundation for his teaching, but he included so much more in his program. Yoel has a vast knowledge of the history, culture, and religion of the Middle East and of the philology of Ancient Semitic languages (including Proto-Hebrew). A lifelong student, he has gathered hundreds of books, most written only in Hebrew. It is rare to find an instructor that is really passionate about the subject he’s teaching. If you are looking for a great personalized way to learn Biblical Hebrew and to be able to search the Torah for its treasures, then Yoel is the teacher for you.



As an English speaker I came into studies with Yoel thinking I would just be able to learn the Hebrew language and be able to pick up a text and begin reading and comprehending. How naïve I was. One does not just learn the Hebrew language! You must also grasp some of the culture, history, and context that the Scriptures were written in. Over the course of two and a half years this is what we did. Learning the grammar was a huge part of our studies but Yoel was not afraid to deviate from the lesson to discuss historical accounts, scriptural references or other sources. Every time we discussed a new subject it opened up so many new avenues to other subjects. Then I began to realized that I could take lessons from Yoel for ten years and there would still be more to learn. But what Yoel has given me are the tools and mindset needed to continue my studies alone. During the course of our lessons Yoel became more than just my Hebrew tutor, he became a friend and a mentor. If you're looking for a professional and adaptive way of studying biblical Hebrew Yoel and "Hebrew in Israel" are the way to go!



I was a student of Hebrew in Israel for two years. Yoel is a gifted and patient teacher. Not only did he teach me the language, but he also spent a great deal of time customizing lessons straight from the biblical text for me. I was a challenging student - I wanted to learn about the Psalms so he studied up and taught me what he learned from books written in modern Hebrew - books that I would otherwise not have access to. When I completed the basics textbook, we moved on to a textbook on syntax because I wanted to learn more. Yoel can teach you as quickly or as slowly as you need, and if you do your part and study, you will learn a great deal from him. And you just may end up with a friend in the process. If you are thinking of taking lessons from him, make it happen. You will not regret it!

If you want personal , customized, one on one instruction in Biblical Hebrew, Hebrew in Israel is the way to go. As a student for almost 2 years I can attest that this far exceeded any expectation I had.
