About the Book -- Studies in Jewish Education XII: The Hebrew Language in the Era of Globalization

The collection of articles in this volume of the Studies in Jewish Education series is largely based on lectures given at an international conference convened in September 2004 by the Melton Centre for Jewish Education of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Department for Jewish Zionist Education of the Jewish Agency. The conference theme was “Language in the Era of Globalization: The Place of the Hebrew Language Today.” 

The overall effect of the processes underway in today's world turns it into a “global village” in a broad sweep of arenas: Economy, politics, society, culture, communications, and language. These worldwide processes are bridging geographical distance, enabling communication across borders and reducing cultural gaps between diverse groups: Clothing, food, movies, and musical compositions are becoming universally familiar. The world is undergoing a “process of coalescence.” In the linguistic domain, we are witnessing the takeover of the English language, which has in practice become the world's “lingua franca.” Knowledge of English is most important to the functioning of the modern world. Most languages today borrow words and phrases from English, in both their written and spoken expressions, including languages once known for their insularity, such as French. Israeli society is also being inundated by trends that are influenced by globalization processes, and with them the Hebrew language is also changing.
