תִּזְכּוֹרֶת If you already know a bit of Hebrew, you’re bound to know the word for to remember – לִזְכּוֹר, an active-simple פָּעַל verb of the root ז.כ.ר (z.k.r).
One of the words that the root ז.כ.ר generates is מַזְכֶּרֶת– souvenir (see earlier entry). Another is זִכָּרוֹן– memory or remembrance, as in the phrase,יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן– The Day of Remembrance or Memorial Day.
מִי שֶׁנִּמְצָא בָּאָרֶץ לֹא צָרִיךְ תִּזְכּוֹרֶת שֶׁהָעֶרֶב וּמָחָר יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן לְחַלָלֵי מַעַרְכוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל וּלְנִפְגְּעֵי פְּעֻלּוֹת הָאֵיבָה.
Whoever is in Israel (literally, the land) doesn’t need a reminder that this evening and tomorrow is the Day of Remembrance for Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism.
