how to say “one picture is worth a thousand words” in Hebrew

having trouble seeing the print?
תְּמוּנָה אַחַת…
Class Starts April 7
In Jerusalem and Tel Aviv

Sometimes a picture says it all, or least most of it (those studying the דַּף יוֹמִיthe daily page (of Talmud) – certainly know what I’m talking about).

In Hebrew, we say:


תְּמוּנָה אַחַת שָׁוָה אֶלֶף מִלִּים.

One picture is worth (literally, is equal to) a thousand words.

Feel free to post examples of such תְּמוּנוֹת - pictures – in the YDDH Facebook group.
