Some facts about the Hebrew language
Hebrew belongs to the group of Canaanite Semitic languages. It was the language of the first Jews, but from 586 BC it began to be replaced by Aramaic. Around 200 A.D. the use of Hebrew as an everyday language ceased to exist, but it was still used for literary and religious functions, as well as as a lingua franca among Jews in different countries.
In the mid-19th century, the first efforts were made to revive Hebrew as an everyday language. The person who was most involved was Eliezer Ben Yehuda (1858-1922). He was the first to use exclusively Hebrew at home, and promoted its use in schools as well.
Today, Hebrew is spoken by about 5 million people, mainly in Israel, where it is an official language along with Arabic. In total, 2 million people speak Hebrew in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, the West Bank and Gaza, Panama, the United Kingdom and the United States.
