Etymology of Modern Hebrew Words: People and the Environment

The iCenter

Hebrew words are built upon root letters—known as a shoresh (שׁוֹרֶשׁ)—and are formed in such ways where small changes can create many different but related meanings.

In collaboration with Adam Teva v’Din, Israel’s leading environmental sustainability non-profit, we’ve picked a few environment-related words and important topics to explore. Take a look—there just might be a few words and ideas that already are second “nature” for you, and of course new ones too!
