Today I went with several Ulpan La-Inyan students and alumni to the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem. It was a Hebrew immersion activity.
 
I’ve never been so moved at a museum before. I recommend it to everyone.
 
Here’s a picture of me and Mona, an Ulpan La-Inyan alum (and star Norwegian journalist):
 
עמי בסיור
 
Today’s word is סִיּוּר (see-YOOR), which means a tour. It’s a noun that comes from the verb, לְסַיֵיר (le-sah-YEHR), which means to tour and to wander, but also to patrol. That’s why the top Israeli military units begin with the word סַייֶרֶת (sah-YEH-ret), which gets translated as commando unit.
