Hebrew Phrases

On this Page:

While you’ll do just fine speaking English while on your life-changing tour of Israel, many of our visitors like to learn a few of the basic Hebrew words and phrases just to establish an even stronger connection with our land and people.


So, each month we offer you a brief lesson in some everyday Hebrew, with Hebrew words written out for English pronunciation (and phonetic pronunciation in italics for any words that may be unclear) …







Hei-chan or Ey-fo?








Bruchim Haba’im

Sorry (apologizing)

(M) mitzta’er (F) mitzta’eret



We look forward to speaking with you in Israel soon – but don’t worry, we’re happy to speak English as well as Hebrew!
