YOGI’S

My Word of the Week is:

יום שישי –  Yom Shishi

Translation: Friday

I chose this word because this Yom Shishi, I will be returning to Israel for the first time in 6 months! I am very excited. Yom Shishi is my favorite day in Israel, as it is usually a free day where you go the Shuk (market) before celebrating Shabbat.
