This is the incredible story of Eliezer Ben Yehuda, the man responsible for the revival of the ancient Hebrew language.  

The brilliant linguist Eliezer Ben Yehuda was responsible for resurrecting a language that had hardly been spoken for 1,700 years.

He was the author of the first modern Hebrew dictionary and editor of the first Hebrew daily newspaper.

It is because of Eliezer ben Yehuda that Israelis speak Hebrew today.
