Hebrew is a Semitic language, originally spoken in the ancient Levant. It died out as a spoken language around the 3rd century B.C., being replaced by Aramaic, but continued to be used for religious and cultural purposes by Jews.[1] It was eventually revived as the official language of Israel in the 20th century.[1]

In 1926, New York was home to a shop with a sign written in Hebrew and at least one bookshop specialising in Hebrew books, both of which presumably served the city's Jewish community.[2]
