Hebrew Union College possesses a wealth of great teachers highly trained in semitic languages. Where else can you take classes like Sumerian/Akkadian, Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac, Arabic, etc? Its Klau library contains a treasure trove of books on Judaica and theology. Those without a background in these areas will still find it useful to visit because of the Skirball museum. It centers on the Holocaust with excellent interactive displays.
