At thismoment the US Dollar will buy 3.565 shekels, but as you know the daily rate changes allthe time. We’ll just have to wait and see what we get when we get there.Below I have the English word and the Hebrew word together so you can see what itlooks like in Hebrew. Most Hebrew words are based on three letter combinations so this isa good example. It will change depending upon how it is used in a sentence.Shekel lqv (In case your computer does not display correctly this is Shin, Qof,Lamed - reading right to left)Now I would like to ask some questions in case this is of interest to anyone. 1. Hebrew has both masculine and feminine gender words. Is “Shekel” masculine or feminine? 2. Shekel is what the currency for Israel is called. The shekel was originally a unit of weight in the same way that we use the “ounce”. What is the Hebrew word for “money” and what does that word literally mean?I hope a get a few people who would like to guess. I’ll just keep on doing things to keepyou thinking about our coming adventure. 10/18/2011
  2. 2. Page 2 of 2A new word for you......If you want to ask... "How much is this?" In Hebrew you say: Cama ze? or Cama zeole? It sounds like "Comma Zay Olay". Or you could just say "Cama?"God bless!Jeff Martin, MajorEducation SecretaryPs 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have allthose who do His commandments. His praise endures forever. NKJV 10/18/2011
