how to say “suburbs” in Hebrew

פַּרְווָרִים

Every Dose this week introduces a word or expression with origins in Biblical Hebrew, and פרוור
suburb – is no exception. It’s sometimes spelled פרבר, as in:

בגלל יוקר המחיה עברנו לפרברים.

Because of the high cost of living we moved to the suburbs.

Now, פרוור doesn’t look or sound like a Semitic word, and Hebrew is a Semitic language. While it does appear in the Bible, there’s a good chance the word originates in Ancient Greek or Persian (or both).
