Hebrew students performing

On March 2, the Program in Jewish Studies hosted its second annual Hebrew Shmooze-A-Palooza, a musical celebration of the Hebrew and Yiddish classes at CU-Boulder. Lead by Eyal Rivlin, Hebrew Instructor at CU, students prepared musical arrangements in Biblical Hebrew, Modern Hebrew, and Yiddish and performed them for their fellow classmates, prospective Hebrew students, and CU faculty. Rivlin, an accomplished musician, and a handful of local Boulder musicians accompanied the student performers.

This event exemplifies Prof. Rivlin's creative pedagogical approach: encouraging students to learn language through music, which helps students retain their language learning skills and makes learning Hebrew fun! Check out the fun below in a few of our photos from the event!
