In English, we call it the Golan Heights. In Hebrew, however, it’s רָמַת הַגּוֹלָן (rah-MAHT hah-goh-LAHN) – the Golan Height. Geographically, the Golan is a single plateau.
Zevitan Wadi, a really cool place
The Golan is one of Israel’s most popular hiking and tourist spots, and a most important military strategic point.

The word רמה also means level. For example at Ulpan La-Inyan we offer five רָמוֹת (rah-MOHT) – Levels 1-5, taking the English speaker with little-to-no background at all in Hebrew from zero to the ability to hold an intelligent conversation… in five courses of six weeks each, with classes that last about an hour a day.
How do we do this? Check us out. We’ve got a brand new session of our highly-acclaimed courses starting on June 6 – in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, in cooperation with AACI.
