In Hebrew: ‘Emergency’

A daily dose of Hebrew.


The Hebrew word for emergency is חֵרוּם. It first appears in recorded Hebrew in the Talmud, in the expression:

בִּשְׁעַת חֵרוּם
at a time of emergency 

Other Hebrew expressions used regularly today are:

מַצָּב חֵרוּם
an emergency situation

בְּמִקְרֶה חירום
in case of emergency

מִסְפַּר חירום
emergency number
