The languages of Arabic and Hebrew have a lot more in common than you might think. They are both of Semitic origin, they share some letters of the alphabet, and some Hebrew and Arabic words are the same, among other things.
Based on these similarities, The Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre hosted a virtual seminar that explored the similarities between the Semitic languages of Arabic, Hebrew and Syriac, and the close ties that have brought these languages together through the ages.
The purpose of the seminar was to highlight the ancient ties and similarities between Arabic and Hebrew, as well as address the vital role of the Arabic language when it comes to promoting human fraternity and bringing people together.
