Ha’Ivrit (Leshonenu La’Am)
(“Hebrew”/ Our Language for the People”)
This periodical is geared towards the educated general public who is interested in the Hebrew language. It was first published in 1945 and only recently (2010) changed its name to Ha’Ivrit. Faithful to its new moniker, the publication continues to be a platform for issues relating to Hebrew in all its forms, styles and periods. The Academy’s decisions regarding punctuation, spelling, and grammar are published here in special editions.
