Babel: Hebrew and the Evolution of Human Language   $5.00

What differentiates man from all other physical life forms on earth is not only his profound intelligence but also his unique and innate ability to speak. The Targum Onkelos, the Aramaic translation of the Torah, in his translation of the Creation Epic, refers to man as “ruach memalelah”, an articulate spirit, something that is unparalleled in the animal world. What was man’s original language and are there people who still speak that language? When did mankind begin to become divided into different language groups? The Torah tells us that Adam gave names to the various animals. By what means did Adam arrive at those names? Is there a system to determine what a name should be? Do the letters of the Hebrew alphabet embody and symbolize different and unique ideas? That and much more is the subject of this lecture.
