Names that Begin with the Letter ZAYIN for Boys and Girls

In generations past, most Hebrew speakers in Israel and Jews ins the diaspora chose Biblical names for their children. Generally, names given to boys and girls were Biblical in origin and gender-specific. Nowadays, past name-choice practices are still prevalent, but many parents do not limit themselves to Biblical nor gender-specific naming.

In modern Hebrew in modern Israel, among the unisex names previously assigned to a specific gender, you will find ZOHAR (shine, glow) and ZIV (brilliance, radiance).

Tu BiShvat: The New Year for Trees

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Tu BiShvat celebrates the New Year for the Trees, which is in essence a celebration of nature and the fruits of the land of Israel. Jewish tradition marks the 15th of Shvat as the day when the sap in the trees begins to rise, signaling the earth’s awakening from its winter slumber, and heralding the beginning of spring.

This mini-holiday is of major importance to our appreciation of Nature and our relationship to it. Tu BiShvat, the Tree’s New Year, celebrates the renewal and reawakening of nature.

Towards the end of every January or beginning of February, as the winter months and its sense of hibernation has lingered for what feels like too long, the “Shkedia,” the Almond Tree begins to blossom in Israel. The almond tree signals that the season is on the precipice of change and brings joy to the heart.

An Israeli kid song expresses just that:

Hashkedia porachat
V’shemesh paz zorachat
Tziporim b’rosh kol gag
Mevasrot et bo hechag
Tu b’shvat hee-gee-a
Chag la-ilanot
The Shkedia is blooming
The golden sun is shining
Birds on all the roof-tops
Broadcast the approaching holiday
Tu b’Shvat is upon us
A holiday for trees

The custom on Tu Bihvat is to eat fruits from the seven species for which the Land of Israel is praised: “…a land of wheat and barley and (grape) vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and (date) honey” (Deut. 8:8).

In honor of Tu BiShvat learn thenames of fruits in Hebrew.
Get the “Fruits in Hebrew: At Old Country Grove” – one of the books from “A Taste of Hebrew” series.

Fruits in Hebrew At Old Country Grove is the fifth volume in
