CATCHING UP WITH YONA SABAR'S COLUMN:
Hebrew word of the week: Shoshannah (Lily or Rose)
Hebrew word of the week: Miriam
Regular readers will notice that I don't link to every word covered in Professor Sabar's column. Many of them, such as the two above, are from ancient Hebrew, and I try always to link to these. But some, such as February 17th's Hahpatsah, "objectification," are modern coinages. I link to these only when his discussion brings out something of interest for ancient Judaism.
