Author and poet Rich Michelson owns an art gallery in Northampton, Mass.

By the late 19th Century, Hebrew was a language spoken only in prayer. But one man in Jerusalem, Ben Yehuda, went to great lengths to bring it back into common use among Jews around the world.

Amherst, Massachusetts, poet and author Rich Michelson described those efforts in his latest kids' book, "The Language Of Angels: A Story About The Reinvention Of Hebrew." 

For our back-to-school book series, Michelson told us Ben Yehuda made this his life's work.
