Hebrew Rap/Music - Are there any artists that rap in Hebrew? That would be a great way for me to practice my Hebrew. I'm also looking for happy, native music from Israel and Israeli movies spoken in Hebrew with English subtitles.
Todah!

Hi there!

There are quite a few rap artists that make music in Hebrew, you might try looking out for שב"כ ס (Shabbaq Samech), הדג נחש (Hadag Nachash) and סבלימינל והצל (Subliminal ve HaTzel)

Hello from Israel!

hebrew music - Shalom Liron!
Todah for the iformation. I will do my best to find those artists here in the US or on the Internet.
I found some awesome native music and a rap by "Army of Lovers"..(I think) they have this cool techno/rap song called "Shalom Alechem" that I can't stop singing now.
I found it at Limewire.com

I have another question for you or anyone else out there. In Israel..are the keyboards for the computer in Hebrew characters?

Well...Laila tov liron...todah.

mottiWednesday 16th of February 2005 03:35:46 AM
well... - Let me try to answer. The characters on the keyboard are in English and next to every English character there is a suitable Hebrew letter.we can switch from English to Hebrew by pressing alt+shift.

That's standard operating system behaviour, really. The languages you can use with your operating system can be installed, if you'd like to know how to install Hebrew on your system let me know the operating system and version you are using. You'd probably have to find yourself a keyboard with Hebrew imprinted letters or stickers to put on your keyboard (I went with that method for german umlauts).

hebrew of course - ok,ok, let's see....
I can transliterate that message but without the vowel markings I don't know what it says....I think that I recognized the word "at"..which is used for a girl and "ata" or "atah" for a boy...right?
Can u please tell me what that says in english?
I'm so curious to know.

Well, thanks for the keyboard info, I'd love to install the Hebrew I just have to locate some stickers or see if I can buy a keyboard on the net.

Last night I went to my conversational Hebrew class. It went great. The teacher "Akiva" had to step out and he left me in charge of our group...you see as long as those vowel sounds are down there...no problem...I am memorizing some words without the vowel sounds...but it's not that easy since just a little change in the vowel and you can have a completely different word.

So, how's the weather in "Yishrael"?
Today I watched a video of Sesamee Stree in Tel Aviv. I actually sang along with it!
Hey, whatever it takes..right?

Well.."muchas gracias" (many thanks)
Lehitraot...( i know that means see you later but I don't know how to write..'write you later")

What does "liron" mean?
MottiThursday 17th of February 2005 03:19:15 AM
ok.. - I am sorry that it's me answering I hope you don't mind :

"ואז נוכל להמשיך את השיחה בעברית, כמובן! " = "ve az nochal lehamsich et asicha, be ivrit kamovan"

is it easier now ? :)

p.s liron = I have a song\joy


lironThursday 17th of February 2005 07:08:45 AM
- Day to day usage of written Hebrew is almost always written without the Nikud, so gaining Hebrew vocabulary is an important thing :)

Motti is right, "Liron" means "my song" or "my happiness/joy", and it is my first name (not a nick).

Israel is pronounced "eesraelle".

hello again - Hi Liron and Motti,
sorry it's taken me so long to reply but I've been working.
I love the meaning of Liron, very beautiful.
One of my Hebrew teachers pronounces Israel 'Yeeshrael"...could it be that depending from where he's from, he pronounces it a bit different?

Today I was putting some words together to form a sentence, I'm going to transliterate what I've been saying: "Shalom, bruchim haba'im le DFW"....(brucheem habaeem le DFW)
I'm trying to say "Hello, Welcome to DFW" did I say it right?
I work at DFW airport in TEXAS, so when I see an Orthodox Jew or Hassidic, I'd like to welcome them to DFW in Hebrew.

If I said it wrong or you have a better way of saying it, please feel free to correct me.

thanks...goodnight,

mottiSunday 20th of February 2005 09:46:37 PM
well... - I can't think of a better way :))

....ברוכים הבאים ל

DFW = ?



trinketSunday 20th of February 2005 10:42:09 PM
YEAH! - Boker Tov!
Ani Happy!
DFW = Dallas Fort Worth Airport but everyone just calls it DFW.
I'm going to search on the Net today for the Hebrew letters thing that I can download for my keyboard...
I love this language...when I was a teenager I used to work in the jewelery district in Miami Florida.
My bosses were Jewish and so were the companies that we dealt with.
I'm visiting Miami next week and I"m going to swing by the store and surprise them with my Hebrew!
I can say the typical greeting like how are you, what's your name, I/She/He/WE/They have a cat..(lol) Are you cold?
Are you thirsty?
The snow is falling !!! which would be funny to say in Miami because it's definately not snowing there.
ok, I have to go...
Lehitraot!

especially for you - Here are some word in Hebrew that might help you at work :)

An airplane = matos מטוס
A flight = tisa טיסה
A pilot = taias טיס A female pilot = Tayeset טיסת
A gate = shaar שער
A ticket = kartis כרטיס

If you have other words you wish to know, just say!

with "sh" like in "sharon" or "shoreline"? Errr, no, there's no dialect to my knowledge or slang in which "Yishrael" would be acceptable. This might be confusing, though, for beginners, becuase the "Shin" letter in the word is actually a "Sin" and sounds like a "Samech". I find it odd that your teacher pronouces it this way? Perhaps I'm missing something.

Silly me... - I overlooked the obvious.....

An airport = "sde teofa" שדה תעופה

hi - Shalom L' and M',
I may have been wrong...it's Jerusalem that he pronounced with the "sh' sound when he was talking about the root shin lamed and mem...(I think) and I thought he also included Israel but I was wrong.
thanks for the extra "airport' words..they'll be very useful.
well, I must "larutz"...
Peace be with you.
