Cultural Event: “2021 Arabic Hebrew Night” (hybrid)
November 11, 2021 | 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Arabic Hebrew Night is an opportunity to think positively about culture, language, and history. The event has run continuously for ten years, growing rapidly as students eagerly participated. Arabic Hebrew Night is a public display of language that helps increase students’ self-confidence and ownership of their Arabic or Hebrew. Leading up to Arabic Hebrew Night, Duke students rehearse poem recitations, songs, skits and presentations in the language they study in class. Students of all language levels, from those who are in their first semester of a foreign language to those who have achieved fluency, perform their piece in front of students, faculty, and community members.
