Eta Beta Rho is the national honor society for students of Hebrew language and culture founded by the (now inter-)National Association of Professors of Hebrew, the NAPH. Its purpose is to recognize outstanding attainments in study of Hebrew language and literature, to stimulate study and research in this field, and to promote an understanding and appreciation of the culture of Israel. Washington University's chapter is the eighteenth (tsadee).
All students interested in Hebrew, regardless of their academic program or achievements are eligible for associate membership. Full membership requirements are listed on the application form.
