What Is Rosh Hashanah?

Tags

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

Rosh Hashanah, literally “head of the year,” is the Jewish New Year and one of the Jewish people’s holiest of days. Rosh Hashanah, which occurs on the first and second days of the Hebrew month of Tishrei (September – October), also celebrates the world’s creation.

The Jewish New Year celebration has little in common with the secular celebration of New Year’s Day in January. The traditions and rituals of Rosh Hashanah are not associated with parties, fireworks, or football games, rather they are devised to encourage contemplation, reflection, and self-evaluation. They reinforce the notion of our responsibility for our life, conduct, and actions.

The most popular symbols of Rosh Hashanah are the shofar, the ram’s horn that is blown as part of prayer services, and the apple dipped in honey, which represents the prayer for a sweet new year.

Hebrew Vocabulary Game: Ir/Eretz (City/Country)

Have fun as you learn lots of HEBREW Words by playing the popular vocabulary-enriching game, IR/ERETZ
עיר – IR – City
ארץ – ERETZ – Land/State/Country

Some call the game CHAI/TZOMEACH/DOMEM
חי – CHAI – Animal world (Chai also means life)
צומח – TZO-ME-ACH / plants
דומם – DO-MEM / inanimate/still object

And others call it YELED/YALDA
ילד – YE-LED – boy (name of)
ילדה – YAL-DA – girl (name of)

The IR/ERETZ game tests the players’ ability to find words that begin with a given letter for each of several general categories. Usually, the game includes categories such as country, city, animal, plant, inanimate object, a boy’s name, and a girl’s name. The number of categories is determined by the players. We will play with the seven listed.

This game is popular in Israel, Latin America, and other countries around the globe. Are familiar with this game in the language of your country? ‘Tutti Frutti,’ ‘Scattergories,’ or ‘Stop the Bus’ are English versions of IR/ERETZ. The French version is called ‘Le Jeu du Baccalauréa.

Hebrew for Kids: Good Values & Virtues (2)

Tags

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

ARE VALUE AND VIRTUE SYNONYMOUS?

Many of us use words such as values, virtues, principles, morals, and ethics interchangeably, but though they have commonalities, they are not truly synonymous.

The most often confused terms are values and virtues.

A VALUE is a principle or fundamental belief that informs our decisions about what is important in life and guides attitudes, motivation, and standards of behavior. Whether a specific value is deemed worthy or not is subjective and depends, among others, on one’s culture, family background, religious beliefs, and social affinity and association. For instance, some may view the value of “nationalism” positively, while others may declare it a negative elitist attitude. Indeed, firmly held but opposing

VALUES have led to cultural clashes, societal divisions, and bloody wars.
A VIRTUE, on the other hand, is a quality that is commonly and widely considered favorable and desirable—qualities such as kindness, honesty, integrity, dignity, and such.

While all values may not be desirable, virtuous, and have moral goodness and are subjective and personal, virtues are universally lauded and deemed to have high moral value.

As often is the case in Hebrew, the terms for value and virtue are not ambiguous but clearly distinguish their meaning.
E-rech, עֵרֶךְ, value, is neither intrinsically good nor bad.
Mi-da tova, מִדָּה טוֹבָה, virtue, is inherently and fundamentally good.

Another lovely Hebrew word for your treasure box:

Most Hebrew words are formed from roots of three-letter roots with vowels and the addition of prefixes and suffixes. The root of the word to-va-na is the same as in ha-va-na, which means comprehension/understanding, and bi-na, intelligence/wisdom/understanding.

Hebrew for Kids: Good Values & Virtues – INTRO (1)

A BLOG SERIES ABOUT GOOD VALUES AND VIRTUES BASED ON THE HEBREW ALPHABET

When children are instilled with good values and instructed about the importance of virtues and virtuous behavior, they will likely evolve into values-driven, ethical, honest, and moral adults!

To combat concerning reports that dominate the news from around the globe, we must be mindful of what it means to be good humans: The values, virtues, and traits to admire, choose right, and emulate those among us who live honest and honorable lives. We must strive to improve ourselves, be great role models for our kids, and attract goodness and kindness while rejecting evil.

Since Hebrew is the language of the Bible, the bedrock and foundation for virtues, noble values, and good morals, its alphabet will serve as the framework for this series about good virtues, good values, principles, traits, behaviors, actions, and more.

The Hebrew phrase for virtues is mi-dot to-vot – מִדּוֹת טוֹבוֹת, which means good measurements, as in the measure of a man – an idiom expressing that behaviors and reactions to different situations sum up a person.

The Hebrew word for value is e-rech עֵרֶךְ. Like in English, depending on the context, the term ‘value’ describes the importance, worth, or usefulness of something or a person’s principles and standards of behavior.

Look for the next installment will delve into more about the meaning of מִדָּה טוֹבָה mi-da to-va (singular for mi-dot to-vot) and עֵרֶךְ – e-rech. Are value and virtue synonymous?

Passover and its Four Names

Tags

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

The celebration of Passover 2022 will begin on the evening of Friday, April 15, and end Saturday night, April 23.

Passover, “Pesach” in Hebrew, is the first of the three major festivals with both historical and agricultural significance (Shavuot and Sukkot, being the other two). On Passover, Jews everywhere celebrate the redemption of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery, over 3800 years ago.

Moses, the leader of the Israelites, was commanded by God to demand of Pharaoh, the Egyptian ruler, to let the Jewish people go. Pharaoh was not keen on the idea. Eventually, the Jews of Egypt escaped Pharaoh and slavery in the most spectacular fashion.

The Holiday of Passover has FOUR NAMES!!

Passover commemorates
the Jewish people’s redemption from Egyptian slavery and their birth as a nation.  Passover also teaches about values, such as trust, humility, hope, renewal, and freedom. Some of the values are evident
in the holiday’s four names.

Chag HaPesach/The Holiday of “Passing Over”
Chag HaMatzot/The Holiday of Matzahs
Chag HaAviv/The Holiday of Spring
Chag HaCherut/The Holiday of Freedom

6The Holiday of Passover – Chag Ha-Pesach, the most well-known name of the holiday, literaly means to pass over or skip. Passover refers to God’s “passing over” or skipping the Jewish homes (marked above the door) during the tenth plague and saving their firstborn sons.

 

 

 

7The Matzahs Holiday – Chag HaMatzot, is the holiday’s second name. The name refers to the main symbolic food eaten on Passover, the Matzah (unleavened bread). The Matzah is made of flour and water, without yeast and is baked quickly. It commemorates the departure of the Jews from Egypt, who in their haste to leave their oppressors, they did not wait for their dough to rise, and baked matzahs instead of bread.

 

8The Holiday of Spring – Chag Ha-A-viv, is the holiday’s third name, refers to the time of year during which Passover is celebrated. The holiday occurs every year during the Hebrew month of Nisan, the first month of spring season. Passover, like spring, symbolizes freedom, renewal, and hope.

 

 

9The Holiday of Freedom – Chag Ha-Che-rut, is the holiday’s fourth name. On Passover, we celebrate freedom. We remember the freeing of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. We also celebrate the freedom we have today to live and to celebrate our Jewish life and our Jewish heritage.

 

 

 

The Passover Story is one of a number of the MazorBooks “Jewish Holiday Books for Children” series, which offers a growing selection of picture books that tell the story of the Jewish holiday and/or a story relevant to the festivities. The books in this special series include books about Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot, Chanukah, Purim, and Passover, with more to come.

Most Hebrew speakers in Israel and Jews in the diaspora chose Biblical names for their children in generations past. 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 or gender-specific naming.
Nowadays, you will find TOM (innocence) and TO-MER (date tree/palm tree) among the new unisex names beginning with the letter TAV.

Words of Values that Begin with the Letter TAV
MazorBooks children’s books promote Good Values. In that spirit, below is a list of Good Value words that begin with the letter TAV

A Place in Israel that Begins with the Letter TAV
As Hebrew is the official language of the State of Israel, it stands to reason to include a place in this incredible country that begins with the letter TAV.
