Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls - 2021 Dies Acedmicus lecture at the Polis Institute in Jerusalem

Polis – The Jerusalem Institute of Languages and Humanities is an academic institution founded in 2011 by an international group of scholars.

Our goal is the renewal of Humanities (especially literature, philosophy, history and geography of the Mediterranean basin and the Middle East) through the study of different cultural aspects and in particular the revival of the languages that are at the foundation of Western civilization.
Our conviction is that learning from the past helps build mutual understanding and respect of different cultures and peoples in the Middle East and in Western Civilization. A dialogue rooted in the respect of every identity generates mutual understanding and long term peace.

Language Courses
The Polis Institute offers regular language courses in Jerusalem during the school year which include Ancient and Modern Hebrew, Arabic, Ancient Greek and Latin, as well as ancient language summer courses in the United States and Europe. We receive a total of more than 500 students in more than 60 different courses each year.

The interaction between teachers of different languages helps to improve their personal techniques in the classroom. The atmosphere, open to every background and religion, is an oasis in a city like Jerusalem which is crossed by many virtual boundaries. This openness to different religious backgrounds creates an environment of respect among the students and teachers working together at Polis. These features of Polis’ identity have created a platform for unrestricted collaboration with local and international institutions.

A lot of the attendees aren't wearing masks and their social distancing standards aren't kosher either.
