I speak hebrew fluently and I would like to find a job in poland... Gdańsk or warsaw will be best for me. Poznań is also ok.

I can also speak basic polish and I study the polish language.

About the only way you are going to be able to do that is to find a job with an Israeli company doing business in Poland, or a Polish company doing business in Israel, and they are not going to be much interested in hiring you for a job in Poland unless you speak rather fluent Polish. In either case, you are looking at a very small market with very low demand for anyone except for very experienced sales professionals with a proven track record.

I don't agree, Polish people told me they don't have enough hebrew speakers and it is required there

Why would you think that Poland would need Hebrew speakers? There is effectively no Hebrew speaking community in Poland. There are very few Jews living in Poland, and most of them do not speak Hebrew.

@HebrewSpeaker

Required for what? and if you already know the answer, why are you asking it on here, to argue when you don't get the answer you wanted?

There are maybe not too many but still some jpbs available for Hebrew speakers however, what I see is that the companies prefer to hire Poles who can speak Hebrew up to some degree as generally native Hebrew speakers demand high wages. There are shared service centers or outsourcing companies who are handling finance/hr services/ customer support and most of the positions are in these areas - this is my observation

The best would be to contact Israelis who live wnd work here, they might be able to help.

Not having valid residence/work permit can lower your chances

It would probably help if the OP gave some more information, such as what country is the OP a national of, what is the OP's educational background and work history, what industry does the OP want to enter. I mean, you could probably get a job as a cashier at Kosher deli, but why would you want to, its not exactly a career.

When in the Galicia Museum in Krakow, I spoke to workers who were original hasidic Jews. Not sure if Am or Israeli.

Have you found (despite writing "Poland" in lower case) a job in Poland?

Hebrew might actually help, but exclusively, at a Holocaust research center, perhaps in Krakow, as someone else mentioned already.

Hebrew

Is it a living language or a dead one like Latin.

Dead, by no means, Alien! Latin isn't either, at least according to the Holy See:-)

There's more than one Hebrew...

Simplifying a bit....

Biblical Hebrew is used in various Jewish religious contexts but not spoken freely on a daily basis and has no native speakers that I know of.

Israeli Hebrew is the language of the modern state of Israel.The idea of reviving Hebrew as an everyday lingua franca for Jews comes from the late 19th century.

The result while highly successful as a language is often not much like earlier versions of the language. The most semitic parts of the language are no longer productive and large parts of the language are basically relexified Yiddish (yiddish constructions with Hebrew words).

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_Hebrew

I thought they spoke Yiddish?

In the modern world the biggest concentration of Yiddish speakers is in NE America (the greater NYC area). Some conservative Jews in Israel continued to use it as much as possible as they thought Hebrew was too sacred to use to buy tomatoes in the market (as it were) though I think that has weakened in recent years.

Try to find Israeli tv shows with subtitles on netflix (or similar).

My favorite so far was Losing Alice, which starts out a bit like All About Eve but then goes in very different directions....

Yiddish is spoken by approximately 200,000 Israelis, mostly in Hasidic communities. Hebrew is the official language in Israel and is spoken by majority of the population there. It used to be a dead language, but was, clearly, successfully revived :)

Yes, "Fauda" is very popular, apparently, for example.

It used to be a dead language,

Pre-war, ot wasn't unusual in traditional Haredi communities (including in Poland) for the men to speak Hebrew (classical Hebrew) among themselves and for the women to speak only Yiddish.

I was interested but the version I found the dialogue in Arabic wasn't translated...

There was an interesting sci fiction series (forget the name something about the earth shaking) kind of similar to Fringe that had a lot more of daily israeli life.

Shows about orthodox jews in Israel are a genre now... Shtisel is supposedt to be good but I don't know how much is Hebrew and how much is in Yiddish...

Job for Hebrew speaker could be found at any given uni they teach Hebrew courses..

Ironside 50 | 12546
15 Sep 2023 #22
I don;t know which uni hold Hebrew courses, you should check at the source if you are interested...
Don't you speak Yiddish ? or was it wine-nish you sound incoherent.
Alien 21 | 5267

I don;t know

Well, I'll leave it without any comment.

Well, I will not! This place is not an information center. OP won't even read it!
Whoever is a Hebrew speaker and want to find job in Poland, will google the info,
As for jon on uni, those course are organized if there are enough students interested in the subject or if they have it permanently, there are lot of unis, lot of courses and lots of diffirent settings.... anybody who is interested should check it rather then wait to have that info handed on the sliver plater...

You don't know anything either ...you are only a necormancer of PF !

Yes, but they only say mass in Latin just like doctors write diagnoses in Latin, but neither of them speaks Latin on a daily basis.

Not anymore. The Mass hasn't been said in Latin since Vatican II back in the 1960s.

IINM Latin is the official language of the Vatican and they do produce and do some things in Latin.... (like the official announcement Habemus papam) though the daily working language is unsurprisingly... Italian.

I know "said" is the most often-used verb. Why not recited, performed, or delivered?

Have you found (despite writing "Poland" in lower case) a job in Poland?

Country names are capitalized except when we don't like them.
