Hebrew Writings[edit]

Please see Talk:Hebrew Writings for reasons why that article should not be merged here. --Hoziron 23:05, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

I've redirected it here - people typing that phrase will probably want works written in Hebrew, which is the scope of this article. I could see nothing to merge. Graham87 13:10, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Deleted the following sentence:[edit]

"They adopted Yiddish, the vernacular language of the Jews of Eastern Europe, in order to gain a larger audience." As the such an assumption on why Sholom Aleychem (and presumably other authors) chose to write Yiddish "instead of Hebrew" must be quoted. For now I left that passage: "In the late nineteenth century, some writers who later became known largely for their Yiddish writing, such as Sholom Aleichem, started out by composing in Hebrew. They were educated to write in Hebrew by followers of the Haskalah." however, it belongs deleted for the same reason as above. The only undisputed fact is that Sholom Aleychem's initial works were in Hebrew. The other Yiddish writers who for some reason followed the same pattern (started Hebrew and changed to Yiddish) would have to be named explicitly. 84.167.248.223 02:20, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

List of Hebrew literary works[edit]

Is there a chronological list of significant Hebrew literary works anywhere? I'd guess that significant means it exists in at least one other modern language (such as English) as well as Hebrew.198.177.27.31 11:12, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Most Jewish religious literature - citation needed[edit]

The claim "Most Jewish religious literature is written in Hebrew" needs a reference. Intuition tells that Hebrew is indeed the main language of Jewish religious literature, but there is also a lot of Jewish religious literature in Aramaic, English, Russian, French, Yiddish and other languages. Did anyone actually count the number of publications by language? If not, then this sentence must be rephrased. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 15:44, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Science fiction written in Hebrew?[edit]

The main page of this article could be improved if there were a list of science fiction authors in Hebrew. Are there any at all? 216.99.219.214 (talk) 06:32, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

There are some, actually. I'll try to improve this. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 11:47, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
