Tonight I visited my סַבְתָּא (SAHV-tah) – grandmother – in Tel Aviv. She asked me whether I shave every day, to which I replied in the negative.
So, in Hebrew, there’s to shave, and to shave something.
To shave – that is, without an object – is לְהִתְגַּלֵּח (le-heet-gah-LEH-ahkh). For example, אֲנִי לֹא מִתְגַּלֵּחַ כָּל יוֹם (ah-NEE loh meet-gah-LEH-ahkh kohl yohm) – I don’t shave every day.
Then there’s הוּא צָרִיךְ לְגַלֵּחַ אֶת הַזָּקָן (hoo tsah-REEKH le-gah-LEH-ahkh et hah-zah-KAHN) – He needs to shave (his) beard.
