For many of us, it’s cold these days. The heaters and the duvets are out, for some of us the snowplows and the food rations…
Not everyone likes the heat, but I think it’s safe to say that everyone likes warmth, both in the physical sense of sitting by a cozy fire, and in the emotional sense.
The Hebrew word for both heat and warmth is חוֹם (khohm). But there’s another word that refers to just warmth: חֲמִימוּת (khah-mee-MOOT).
