Hagigah Ivrit: A Festival Celebrating the Hebrew Language and Culture

Due to the unfolding impact of COVID-19 and our planned Hagigah Ivrit, celebrating Hebrew and Hebrew Culture are postponed. Visit HebrewLanguageCouncil.org for updates.

The American Zionist Movement is a proud co-sponsor of Hagigah Ivrit: A Festival Celebrating the Hebrew Language and Culture which will take place in North America from March 15th through April 1st, 2020.

Hebrew is a language both old and new, the language of both the Bible and the daily life of modern Israel. We invite you to join us at a wide range of events celebrating Hebrew – the vibrant language of Israel expressed in its literature, movies, songs, and more.

MISSION
Hagigah Ivrit (חגיגה עברית), “a festival of Hebrew”, will raise the profile of Hebrew in North America by creating and supporting local events and activities that celebrate the language and its culture.

Through comprehensive programming, Hagigah Ivrit aims to strengthen the importance of Hebrew for enthusiasts of all backgrounds and levels of familiarity with the language.
