how to say “teacher” in Hebrew

מוֹרֶה, מוֹרָה
Today (Monday), one of the greatest Torah leaders of our generation passed away. He was known by the Jewish world as Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, but among those following his specific brand of Judaism, he was known affectionately and reverently by the Aramaic word for our master or our teacher, מָרָן
.
In Hebrew, מרן would be מוֹרֵנוּ
, which is itself composed of the suffix נוּ-
 
meaning our, and the masculine form of the word for teacher, מוֹרֶה
.
מורה, like the word תּוֹרָה Torah, comes from the root י.ר.ה (y.r.h) meaning instruction. A teacher is an instructor.
The feminine form of the word is מוֹרָה
.
For example:
הַמּוֹרָה סֵרְבָה לְקַבֵּל תַּפּוּחַ מֵהַתַּלְמִיד.
The (female) teacher refused to accept an apple from the student.
and
הַיּוֹם יְרוּשָׁלַיִם מִתְאַבֶּלֶת עַל הַמּוֹרֶה הַגָּדוֹל, הָרַב עוֹבַדְיָה יוֹסֵף.
Today Jerusalem mourns the great teacher, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
