Iton Gadol covered B’nai B’rith International’s upcoming Nov. 15 conference, in partnership with UNESCO, which will highlight the Jewish people’s historic roots in the Land of Israel and the extraordinary revival of Hebrew.
B’nai Brith has organized an international conference to celebrate 100 years since the death of the visionary of modern Hebrew Eliezer Ben-Yehuda and the beginning of the decade of indigenous languages (2022-2032).
The symposium will be attended by dignitaries and prominent specialists, including the president and former president of the Academy of the Hebrew Language, Aharon Maman and Moshe Bar-Asher, respectively.
Following successful past B’nai B’rith symposiums at UNESCO on two major Jewish diasporic languages, Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish, this program will be a landmark event in a United Nations setting, critically highlighting Jews’ heritage and remarkable contributions to the international community, the historic roots of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel and the extraordinary revival in our time of one of the world’s oldest languages.
The event will be held on November 15 at UNESCO headquarters in Paris and can be followed online.
