Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes Learning Hebrew (narrative only)

Hebrew, the language of the Bible, is the official language of Israel. For those new to the Country, there are "crash courses", so these new people can be mainstreamed into Israeli life. Interviews are conducted with some of those instrumental in the teaching of Hebrew in the new Country and some of those who were beginning to learn the language. While Hebrew might be thousands of years old and Biblical in its origin, it is a language that has the ability to adapt to the modern age.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
