An “Ulpan” (pronounced “ool-pan”) is a studio or class designed for intensive instruction of Modern Hebrew.

For more than 50 years our Summer Ulpan has been the jewel in the crown of our yearly work. Thousands of students benefited from our best qualified and most experienced teachers, and celebrated the atmosphere of Jerusalem and student activities.

Students who complete the Summer Ulpan successfully will receive a certificate and academic credit from the Hebrew University.

Students who wish to continue their studies after the summer ulpan will only be able to do so in the Spring Hebrew program.

 

Scopus Ulpan

The Scopus Ulpan is a short ulpan that is part of the longer Summer Ulpan. It is not possible to complete a full level in the Scopus Ulpan. If you return to study at HebrewU’s RIS, you may have difficulty finding a suitable Hebrew class. Therefore, if you might want to continue to study at RIS, we recommend that you take the Summer Ulpan.
