Hebrew has gone through periods of strength and weakness during its unique history. At the end of the nineteenth century, the process of the Hebrew language revival began by Eliezer Ben-Yehuda. This revival Process is considered one of the rarest successful examples of reviving a dead language. As a result, Modern Hebrew became the official language of the state of Israel (1948), and today is used by 10 million (Jewish and non-Jewish) people worldwide
