eTeacherHebrew grew out of humble beginnings just over a decade ago. Its founders, brothers Boaz and Yariv Bin Nun, followed in the footsteps of their grandfather, Aharon Rosen, bestselling author of Hebrew language textbooks and one of the founding fathers of Hebrew tuition for foreigners, a pioneer of the Ulpan program in early days of the State of Israel.
In the late 1960s, Rosen used radio – the most modern technology at the time – to traverse the Iron Curtain and reach Russian Jews with Hebrew lessons. With the emergence of television, he began broadcasting a weekly lesson, coast-to-coast in the United States. Yariv and Boaz were inspired and captivated by their grandfather’s story, his use of technology and by the deep admiration felt for him by so many. As it emerged in the later 1990’s the brothers saw the potential to use the internet to teach Hebrew.
In 2000, Yariv and Boaz launched eTeacher. The first few years were hard work; people were skeptical that anything could be learned via internet. In 2002, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs granted the company the project of founding the world’s first online Hebrew school. Employees’ children could finally learn to read, write and speak Hebrew correctly, despite growing up abroad and moving from country to country. Over a decade later, eTeacher has blossomed into the leading online provider of Hebrew instruction worldwide.
