Is Sumerian any way close to Hebrew?

Report as

No. The Sumerians worship in Ziggerats. Hebrews in synagogues.the Sumerians were Polythiests. The Hebrews are monothiests. The Hebrews made the exodus. The Sumerians made the plow. The Sumerians write in Cuneiform.the Hebrews write in...Hebrew so the Sumerians and Hebrews are not alike

Thanks but my question should have been more precise. I was wondering about the languages. Ibrahim or Abraham my have been a descendant of Sumerian culture as he was from a city in Iraq. He was prob literate. If you look into the old testament you find traces of polythesism. If this interests you at all dig into the books of David Rohl...especially his book Genesis. The early plough was really a scraping stick, not very sophisticated but good enough o light soils for strewing grain seed. The Chinese had the modern plough. It came to Europe late.

No, Hebrew came many centuries later and is not at all alike.
