Rachel Cilia Werdmölder 

"The B.A. in Classical Hebrew was a well-rounded course, offering language instruction within its cultural and historical contexts. It boosted my career, with an ensuing Masters in Jewish Studies at Oxford, a junior curatorship post at the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana in Amsterdam, and a current doctoral research at Cornell, in Ithaca, New York."
