Thank you. I understand about the Hebrew. I have not eaten a cranberry filled turkey, but I suppose that you could put cranberries in the bread stuffing that's in the Turkey and that would be tasty. Give it a try for the high holidays. Sounds good. I no longer stuff my turkey as it sometimes comes out too greasy for my tastes and digestion. However, we like cranberry sauce with turkey ,but we really like cranberry jelly and you can do both of those at another time of the year. We can even get kosher for pesach cranberry jelly in the states. You are still invited and a happy Chanukah to you too!

Hi Shelley,


Regarding ื”ื™ื versus ื–ืืช - it's kind of complicated, I guess. Basically, ื”ื™ื is used only after mentioning the noun itself in the same sentence or the one prior to it. For example:

ื”ืกืขื•ื“ื” ื”ื™ื™ืชื” ื˜ืขื™ืžื”, ืื‘ืœ ื”ื™ื ืœื ื”ื™ื™ืชื” ืžืฉื‘ื™ืขื” - The meal was delicious, but it (ื”ื™ื) wasn't filling.

Regarding "rotev": Your intuition wasn't completely wrong: it can work with many other nouns in a Smichut construct, Here are a few examples:

ืขืฆื™ ืื•ืจืŸ ื•ืืœื•ืŸ (oak and pine trees)

ื‘ื’ื“ื™ ื™ืœื“ื™ื ื•ื ื•ืขืจ (children's and youths' clothes)

ืจื”ื™ื˜ื™ ื‘ื™ืช ื•ื’ืŸ (home and garden furniture)

In all these examples, the main noun is plural. However, they can also be confusing (like it's one noun with two contradicting qualities), so it's probably better to avoid it.

Regarding the verb tense: Do you mean ื”ื™ื™ืชื” vs. ื”ื™ืชื”? This is simply a matter of spelling, and since the word ื”ื™ื™ืชื” is spelled ื”ื™ืชื” when it has niqqud, it doesn't really matter.


About Thanks giving dinner - you're probably right, but I guess the grass is always greener on the other side of the world! Though I don't know any Israeli holiday in which you eat a cranberry-filled turkey, so I think you've won this one :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Thank you so much for the invitation! Happy Chanuka :smile:

oh and don't be jealous-you probably have a similar meal for the high holidays! You are invited for Thanksgiving next year to my home!

Yes. very interesting about "rotev". I debated whether to use "Zo or He" for it. Was " he" incorrect- in the sentence it was delicious? I tried to combine the two sauces by using "rotev" only once, but you used it twice because by using it once it changed the meaning of the sentence. I tried to mean sauces of gravy and cranberry-using it once like in English. From your explanation of "rotev" I see that I can't do that, thick and cranberries make no sense.

You changed my verb tense- Does "hiya " mean "is" and" hyitah" means was? I thought they both meant" was."?

Thank you for clearing up my confusion in advance.

Hi Shelley,


Thank you for posting!

ื‘ื—ื’ ื”ื”ื•ื“ื™ื” ืื›ืœื ื• ื”ื•ื“ื• ืขื ืจื•ื˜ื‘ ืกืžื™ืš ื•ืจื•ื˜ื‘ ื—ืžื•ืฆื™ื•ืช, ืคื™ืจื”, ื™ืจืงื•ืช ื•ืžืžืชืงื™ื. ื–ื• ื”ื™ื™ืชื” ืกืขื•ื“ื” ื˜ืขื™ืžื”.

It sounds amazing, I'm so jealous!

By the way, an interesting (and unfortunate) fact: there is no word for "gravy" in Hebrew. We just use the word ืจื•ื˜ื‘ - (rotev) sauce, to which you wisely added ืกืžื™ืš ("thick" - when referring to liquids). So we put ืจื•ื˜ื‘ on our salad, ืจื•ื˜ื‘ on our pasta and ืจื•ื˜ื‘ on our turkey. Weird, huh?
