We have received the following query:
I’m wondering if you could recommend a 3 month Biblical Hebrew course in Israel…I have the time from July to Sep available this year.
My first response would be that this may be confusing the end with the means–if you want to learn Biblical Hebrew or anything else the best thing is to get on with it here and now. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are–a sentiment famously endorsed by Theodore Roosevelt. If you are an undergraduate doing a year abroad, then the university will try to make you learn something just by being there, but in other circumstances it’s all a bit more uncertain.
As for answering the question as posed, I suspect that if you want a particular set period the best thing would be to find a private tutor. You could look at craigslist for instance and there is a listing of Israeli free ads sites here. Even better–post an ad yourself saying what you’re looking for.
As to actually existing courses, you could try the Biblical Language Center–Randall Buth did inform me that they would be doing courses in Israel in 2015, so you could write and ask him about that. There is also a summer course at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Again if I were you I would write to the coordinator, Steven Fassberg and ask if he had any suggestions. The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a page about English programs in Israeli universities and you can also write to them.
So my advice would be:
i) make sure that you are clear about the what and the how in your intentions;
ii) ask around!
