Modern Hebrew in America is a blog that was started in 2006 by Jennie Starr, founder of the Tarbuton, Israeli Cultural Experiences in San Diego, CA. The blog began with an emphasis on San Diego local programs.
Over time the blog has evolved into a resource tracking trends in the United States for Hebrew enrichment programs, Hebrew immersion summer camps, Israeli community centers and curriculum development. We also post articles and research that explore the value of Israeli culture and Hebrew to Jewish identity, community building and connection to Israel for the next generation.
Tarbuton, Israeli Cultural Experiences provides youth and adult programs focused on Hebrew and Israel education and Israeli cultural programming for Jewish Americans and Israeli-expats in San Diego, CA. Tarbuton also offers Startup18, a social venture lab which supports founders and CEO’s of all kinds of nonprofit initiatives including several spun off by Tarbuton into new entrepreneurial hands.
