Lesson Transcript

Yaara: Hi everyone, welcome to Hebrew weekly words. My name is Yaara, and today’s theme is months of the year- חודשי השנה (ħodshei ha-shana).
.יום ההולדת שלי הוא בינואר
(yom ha-huledet sheli hu be-yanuar.)
“My birthday is in January.”
מזג האוויר מתחיל להתחמם במרץ.
(mezeg ha-avir matħil le'hitħamem be-mertz.)
“The weather starts to get warm in March.” At least in Israel.
.יוני הוא החודש האחרון ללימודים
(yuni hu ha-ħodesh ha-aħaron la-limudim.)
“June is the last month of school.”
באוגוסט, תל אביב היא כמו מרק.
(be-ogust, Tel Aviv hi kmo marak.)
“In August, Tel Aviv is like a soup.”
Okay, because it’s so unbelievably hot and humid, you feel like you are swimming in soup when you walk down the street, yeah. That’s maybe not the best time to visit Israel.
ליל כל הקדושים חל באוקטובר.
(lel kol ha-kdoshim ħal be-oktober.)
“Halloween is in October.”
Halloween obviously is not an Israeli holiday, but in Israel we do celebrate Purim, which is a Jewish holiday in which you dress up and have fun, it’s a great holiday, look it up. And this is the end. So thank you very much for watching. We were talking about months of the year. Don’t forget to check the site and I will see you in the next video, bye!

Dear Sarah,

Thank you for posting and for sharing your feedback.

This lesson is part of a specific series in which every time 5 different words are learned. However, when it comes to months, I can understand your point and wonder about not including all 12... I am forwarding your question. 👍

Enjoy learning Hebrew!

Hi, Why is this not competed? It has only 4 months, not 12 months.

Hi Billy,

Thanks for commenting and posting your question 😄

There is no exact match between the two calendars.

The names of the Jewish months are:

Tishrey - תשרי

cheshvan - חשוון

Kislev - כסלו

Tevet - טבת

Shvat - שבט

Adar - אדר

Nisan - ניסן

Iyar - אייר

Sivan - סיוון

Tamuz - תמוז

Av - אב

Elul - אלול

As the Jewish calendar is set according to the moon cycle, every 4 years there is a need for a correction. Then another month - Adar b (אדר ב) is added.
