how to say “to say goodbye” in Hebrew

This one’s for Eva – thanks for the request!
 
Most people who have even the most rudimentary familiarity with Hebrew know that שָׁלוֹם (shah-LOHM) means both hello and goodbye (and, literally, peace).
 
But to say goodbye, as in to part ways with someone – is a substantially different expression in Hebrew. The word is לְהִפָּרֵד (le-hee-pah-REHD). For example, קָשֶׁה לְהִפָּרֵד מִמִּשְׁפָּחָה (kah-SHEH le-hee-pah-REHD mee-meesh-pah-KHAH) – It’s hard to part ways with family.
