Where eyfo אֵיפׂה



To do:
< maybe this isn't the best place for this, we haven't asked any questions yet>

  • When people thank you, it is customary to answer "Al lo davar" (עׇל לֹא דׇבׇר) or "Eyn be'ad ma" (אֵין בְעֳד מָה), both meaning "for nothing". Alternatively, you can say "Bevakashah" (בְּבַקָשָׁה), which means both "please" and "you're welcome".
