אָדָם מֻפְנָם, אָדָם מֻחְצָן  listen and repeat Some of us are naturally quiet, while others can be heard from a kilometer away. Introverts tend to keep their feelings and experiences inside, while Extroverts tend to be outgoing and expressive. The Hebrew term for introvert is אָדָם מֻפְנָם  listen and repeat - literally, an introverted person. מופנם  listen and repeat, an adjective deriving from the passive-causative […]

The Hebrew expression for looking ahead is לִהְיוֹת עִם מַבָּט קָדִימָה  listen - literally, to be with a gaze forward - though the to be part is rarely used. […]

פְּעִילוּת  listen and repeat Some of us like grammar, and some of us don’t. The word verb excites some of us, while daunting others or making them drowsy. But most of us know that a verb is a word that indicates action. In Hebrew, this is easy to remember, since the very word for verb itself – פֹּעַל ( listen […]

Because when he was 13, he was in Auschwitz, where they didn’t do בר מצווה ceremonies. En route, I told the cab driver about the event. He made his comment […]

בְּיַחַד  listen and repeat Today is ט”וּ בְּאָב ( listen and repeat) - the 15th of the Jewish month of Av – which is the Jewish day of love. The Hebrew word for together is בְּיַחַד ( listen and repeat) (alternatively and more formally, יַחַד ( listen and repeat)). For example: טִיַּלְנוּ בְּיַחַד בַּמִּזְרָח. We traveled together in the east.  listen   You […]

פְּשָׁרָה  listen and repeat An important tool for conflict resolution is compromise. The Hebrew word for a compromise is פְּשָׁרָה ( listen and repeat), while to compromise is the reflexive-intensive הִתְפַּעֵל verb, לְהִתְפַּשֵּׁר ( listen and repeat). (To compromise in the sense of compromising safety is לְסַכֵּן ( listen and repeat) - also to endanger.) The root of these two is clearly פ.שׁ.ר (p.sh.r)… but exactly how […]

לְאַיֵּשׁ  listen and repeat If you read the title of this post and didn’t quite understand what I’m getting it, you’re probably not the only one. The word לְאַיֵּשׁ ( listen and repeat) doesn’t really have a direct translation into English. The best I could come up with is to man and to staff, but these don’t quite do this word justice. It […]

לַעֲבוֹר דִּירָה  listen and repeat In English, we talk about moving from one residence to another. The Hebrew word for residence is דִּירָה ( listen and repeat) - which is also the word for apartment or flat. But to move is literally, לָזוּז ( listen and repeat), and that’s not what we say in Hebrew. The Hebrew expression is לַעֲבוֹר דִּירָה ( listen and repeat) - […]

חִלּוֹנִי, חִלּוֹנִית  listen and repeat In yesterday’s dose of Hebrew, we saw the root for profane or not sacred is ח.ל.ל (kh.l.l). This is the root of the Modern-Hebrew term referring to someone or something secular or non-religious - חִלּוֹנִי ( listen and repeat) in the masculine and חִלּוֹנִית ( listen and repeat) in the feminine. For example: תֵּל אָבִיב הִיא לָרֹב עִיר חִלּוֹנִית. Tel […]

The root of ושננתם ( listen and repeat) is שׁ.נ.נ (sh.n.n) meaning learning by repetition. It’s also the root of the word מִשְׁנָה ( listen and repeat) - […]

For example: יִצְחָק חָפַר בְּאֵרוֹת בַּנֶּגֶב. Isaac dug wells in the Negev (southern desert portion of Israel).  listen The word לחפור is also used in Modern-Hebrew slang […]

אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חָכָם, אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חֲכָמָה  listen  “When will the videos be ready?” “I’ll know better once I manage to find all the right images.”In Hebrew, instead of saying I’ll know better, we say, אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חָכָם when a male is speaking and אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חֲכָמָה when a female is speaking. Broken down: אהיה – I will […]

בַּת יָם, בְּתוּלַת יָם  listen There’s a city just south of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, nicely situated on the coast, called Bat Yam – in Hebrew, בַּת יָם ( listen and repeat).

תִּינוֹק, תִּינוֹקֶת  listen The Hebrew word for baby boy is תִּינוֹק ( listen and repeat), while the word for baby girl is תִּינוֹקֶת (listen and repeat).When speaking of multiple babies, it’s תִּינוֹקוֹת ( listen and repeat), regardless of gender. These words derive from the root י.נ.ק (y.n.k), which means nursing. They first appear in Mishnaic Hebrew. For example, I wish to congratulate […]
