Judeo-Arabic is a religiolect that has been spoken and written in various forms by Jews throughout the Arabic-speaking world. Judeo-Arabic literature deals for the most part with Jewish topics and is written by Jews for a Jewish readership. This talk will review the history of Judeo-Arabic and analyze its structure and modern use in Israel and elsewhere among Arabic-speaking Jews.


This analysis will provide an interesting perspective on the cultural dimension of Israel’s integration in the Middle East by establishing Israel as a true bi- or even multilingual state where both Hebrew and Arabic (as well as other languages) serve as the functioning and official languages of the state.
