Pre-State Israel in Color

Hat Tip Jewish Learning

Awesome footage. Enjoy.


  1. At the end of the clip, the narrator uses the word 'fun', saying it in Hebrew. Is there a Hebrew word for fun?

  2. משעשע

    or more accurately, "כיף"

  3. Is that Biblical or Modern Hebrew? I once heard a Mussar Vort that there is purposely no word for "just having fun". Simcha and it's synonyms are for joy (relating to holidays, etc.). There is no concept of just killing time and having in fun in Biblical Hebrew, or so I was told.
