Language Acquisition


The Dorot Fellowship values Hebrew language as a key to one's engagement in Israel and as a critical ingredient for Jewish leadership. Fellows who are not conversational Hebrew speakers are required to learn Hebrew. Fellows are encouraged to investigate a variety of ulpanim, private tutors and non-conventional means of learning Hebrew based upon their Hebrew literacy and their learning style.



Fellows who are fluent in Hebrew (or nearly so), can choose to learn Arabic, Russian or Amharic in addition to, or in place of, Hebrew to enrich their experience of Israel.
