Shalom! At Ha-Ulpan you'll learn modern conversational Hebrew. Students learn all four Hebrew language skills — speech, comprehension, reading, and writing — using the successful ulpan method. We use Israeli teaching materials, including books and audiovisual aids, that have been carefully selected for American students. Our certified instructors are native Hebrew speakers who are experienced with adult learners. Students are totally immersed in an interactive Hebrew-speaking environment in small classes.
From alef1 to elef2, one thousand words of Hebrew is all you need. Join us at Ha-Ulpan for a journey ... a journey where you will acquire words spoken by Jews for more than a thousand years in ancient Canaan. For the next two thousand years, written Hebrew was used for prayer and study. Biblical Hebrew developed further throughout the Mishnaic and Talmudic periods, the Middle Ages, and the Enlightenment. In fact, eight hundred of the thousand most used Hebrew words are biblical words. The resurgence of spoken Hebrew one hundred years ago, led by Eliezer Ben-Yehuda and his friends, reinvigorated the language by adding newly created words, a process that continues to this very day.
We invite you to take the first step on that journey. Come claim your right! Revive it by learning it. Renew it by speaking it. Return it to its origin!

We offer classes on the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, the West Village, Brooklyn, and Queens.
Join one of our classes and you'll discover the joy of learning a language with other students who share the same goal. Each of our students has something unique to contribute to our classes.
Whether you're just learning the aleph-bet or you can already carry on extended conversations in Hebrew, we have a class for you. Start at the beginning, or take one of our classes in Hebrew literature or Israeli film.
We hold many special events throughout the year for our students, from our Tu Bishvat party to our annual tour in Hebrew.
