This study sought to establish the conditions necessary to institute a successful Hebrew education program in a public school system. To do this, the study focused on the present Hebrew program at Nicolet High School in Glendale, Wisconsin. An attempt was made to give some insight into the type of student who studies Hebrew at Nicolet, his motivations, and his future goals. Information was obtained from several sources: (1) a multiple choice questionnaire consisting of fifteen questions given to 125 present and former Hebrew students at Nicolet, (2) interviews with persons related to Hebrew education at Nicolet, and (3) files at Nicolet High School pertaining to the establishment of the Hebrew education program.
