Pita & SaladsMuch of the Western border of Israel is formed by the Mediterranean coastline, and influences from the entire Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern regions have found their way into Israeli culture.  You can hear it in the music.  You can taste it in the food!

So, of course, we’ll need to learn the Hebrew names for all this delicious food.  And Learn Hebrew Pod shiur achat-esre will give us the opportunity to do just that.

We’ll also have the chance to get better acquainted with our old friend, the pa-al building block, and we’ll learn about a special Hebrew suffix that can turn just any old brother into my brother and any old sister into Pizzamy sister.  So, by the time we’re done, you’ll know how to say, “My brother and I are going to the Italian restaurant.”

Finally, you’ll understand why, when you’re going to an Oriental restaurant in Israel, you shouldn’t expect to order egg rolls or sushi.  But instead, plan on a wonderful meal of pita ve-chumus . . . and maybe some jachnun, malawach, and schug. Mmmmm . . . But you’d better be careful with that schug!!  beteavon!!
