Default Hebrew Heritage

Hebrews (Hebrew: עברים or עבריים, Tiberian ʿIḇrm, ʿIḇriyym; Modern Hebrew ʿIvrim, ʿIvriyyim, ʕibrim, ʕibriyim) is a term appearing 34 times within 32 verses of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible). While the term was not an ethnonym, it is mostly taken as synonymous with the Israelites, especially in the pre-monarchic period when they were still nomadic, but in some instances it may also be used in a wider sense, referring to the Phoenicians, or to other ancient groups, such as the group known as Shasu of Yhw on the eve of the Bronze Age collapse.
