דַּקָּה דּוּמִיָּה, רֶגַע שֶׁל דּוּמִיָּה

One appropriate emotional response to tragedy such as that which took place the other day in Connecticut, is to be silent.On a communal level, sometimes a moment of silence is observed.

Hebrew has two terms for this:

דַּקָּה דּוּמִיָּה literally, a minute silent

רֶגַע שֶׁל דּוּמִיָּה literally, a moment of silence
