English: Happy New Year
Hebrew Translation: שָׁנָה טוֹבָה
Hebrew Transliteration: shana tova
Word Type: Hebrew Greeting
After getting my 4-year Bachelor of Arts in Hebrew language, I realized how far apart today's spoken Hebrew is from the Hebrew you study in your tradition school.
After my search for an online Hebrew dictionary that provided modern-day vocabulary with pronunciation was in vain, I decided to start this one in 2013 with my -then- life partner, Adam.
Today, some of the words here are pronounced by native speakers I hired, some pronounced by me, some by my native-speaking ex and some by colleagues at the university.
We haven't been able to get everything recorded, but we hope we have covered most of what you are looking for.
If there is a word that you suggest inclusion, please write me.
