how to say “windshield” in Hebrew

שִׁמְשָׁה קִדְמִית

The Hebrew word for window pane is שִׁמְשָׁה

(often pronounced שְׁמָשָה
), deriving from the word שמש
– sun.

The kind of pane that shields the people in a car from wind is called in Hebrew שמשה קדמית

– a frontal pane, though the phrase is usually shortened to simply שמשה.

For example:

הברד שבר לי את השמשה!

The hail broke my windshield!

Note that in the expression above, broke my is literally broke for me the. This is a common way of expressing unfortunate circumstances, sometimes victimhood, in Hebrew, as in:

נגמר לי הדלק בעליה.

I ran out of gas on the incline.
