Why was Hebrew declared as a Jewish language?

Declared as a Jewish language? An odd turn of phrase. Hebrew is and has always been the language of the Hebrew Bible and Jewish prayer. A century ago, Hebrew was to Judaism as Latin was to the Catholic Church, but around that time, a group of Jews in Palestine decided to speak only Hebrew in their homes, and as a result, a generation of Palestinian Jews grew up speaking Hebrew as their native language. As the Palestinian Jewish community grew and then became the modern state of Israel, Hebrew became an official language of Israel, alongside Arabic. Much more recently, right-wing element in Israel have pushed to reduce the use of Arabic in Israel as a nationalist measure to de-legitimize Israel's large Arab minority.
