Only in Israel - Learn Hebrew Words from Milk Cartons

 Hi Everyone!

Israel marks Hebrew Language Day every year on the birthday of 

Eliezer Ben Yehuda, the father of modern spoken Hebrew. 

This year, the Hebrew date, 21st of Tevet, falls on December 25 - Shabbat. 

Activities throughout Israel will take place on Thursday, December 23, 2021.

In Honor of Hebrew Language Day, The Academy of the Hebrew Language,

together with Tnuva, printed Hebrew word quizzes on the side of milk  cartons.

This week, I went to local supermarkets and took photos of the milk cartons.

I posted them online at:

Enjoy the photos.

Please share. Thank you!

Have a good night,
