About Me

I'm Benjamin Kantor. I'm a Hebrew Scholar.

My name is Benjamin Kantor and I currently work as a Research Associate in Biblical Hebrew Philology at the University of Cambridge. I am also a co-author of the forthcoming Oxford Grammar of Biblical Hebrew. I received my Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible from the University of Texas at Austin and my B.A. in Classical Studies from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

While I love writing and research, I also have a passion for teaching Biblical Hebrew as a real and living language.

The Old Testament—or Hebrew Bible—was originally written in Biblical Hebrew, though a small percentage was also written in Biblical Aramaic. By learning the original languages of the Bible, one becomes equipped for deeper study. Whether the ultimate goal is translation, academic research, teaching, preaching, or personal understanding, learning the original languages of the Bible is well worthwhile.

To put it simply, BiblicalHebrew.com uses a typical “modern” (or Sephardic) pronunciation of Biblical Hebrew but with a number of more authentically “biblical” features implemented therein, such as pharyngeal gutturals, pharyngealized emphatics, and consonant gemination.
