A sign written in Hebrew in New York in 1926

Hebrew was a Semitic language originally spoken in ancient Palestine. It died out as a spoken language around the 3rd century B.C., being replaced by Aramaic, but was still used in religious and literary writing thereafter.[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]
