how do you say “to wear” in Hebrew?

ללבוש, לחבוש, לנעול, לגרוב, וכו
 
Actually, it’s not so simple – Hebrew has specific verbs for wearing many different types of clothing.
 
The most common word is לִלְבּוֹש (leel-BOHSH). For example, אֲנִי אוֹהֵב לִלְבּוֹש חוּלְצוֹת יָפוֹת (ah-NEE oh-HEV leel-BOHSH hool-TSOHT yah-FOHT) – I like to wear nice shirts.

But there are other terms:
 
לַחֲבוֹש כּוֹבַע (lahkh-BOHSH KOH-va) – to wear a hat;
 
לִנְעוֹל נַעֲלָיִים (leen-OHL nah-ah-LAH-yeem) – to wear shoes;

לִגְרוֹב גַּרְבָּיִים (leeg-ROHV gahr-BAH-yeem) – to wear socks, etc.
 
I’d like to alert you all to a win-win-win situation that involves לְבִישַׁת חוּלְצוֹת (le-vee-SHAHT hool-TSOHT) – wearing shirts. It’s called the NU Campaign. The idea is that people buy great-looking t-shirts, each of which displays a story connected to a particular cause. Proceeds go to help fund this cause, as well as build the private business running the campaign.
 
So the private company wins, the non-profit certainly wins… and the customer gets both a stylish shirt as well as the knowledge that they’ve helped a good cause.
