Eliezer Ben-Yehuda
Cover of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda

Over a period of two thousand years, Hebrew-once the everyday language of the Jewish people-had become primarily the sacred language of prayers and the Bible...Not until Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, a young medical student from Russia, determined to revive the ancient tongue of his people did Hebrew again become a living language.

How Ben-Yehuda achieved his fervent dream is a remarkable story.

First edition 1987
