לחגוג
 
You probably know the word חַג (hahg) – holiday, in the religious sense.
 
To celebrate is לַחְגּוֹג (lah-GOHG).
 
Here’s a video שחוגג sixty years of Israel’s independence (two years dated). In my mind, it celebrates the diversity of Jews in Israeli society, that, after thousands of years of separation and the widest possible variety of ideologies, are somehow learning to come together… and be strong in the land that G-d has graciously given to us.
(can’t see the video?)


חַג הָעַצְמָאוּת שָׂמֵח (hahg hah-ahts-mah-OOT sah-MEH-ah) – happy Yom Haatzmaut!
