E for Etrog Learn a Hebrew word


In Hebrew, the citron is transliterately known as the etrog meaning love and attraction in Talmudical Aramic, The Arabic name for the fruit itranj اترنج is also cognate with the Hebrew; the itranj is mentioned favorably in the Hadith. It is one of the Four Species used during the holiday of Sukkot each fall. The role of the citron in that holiday was portrayed in the Israeli movie Ushpizin. Citrons that have been bred with lemon (in order to increase output per tree and make the tree less fragile) are not kosher for use as part of the Four Species.

The citron (Citrus medica) is a species of citrus fruit. The citron is slow growing about 2-4 year and mostly grown near the Mediterranean, parts of India, and in Central and South America.

In Tamil, the unripe fruit is referred to as 'narthangai', which is usually salted and dried to make a preserve. The tender leaves of the plant are often used in conjunction with chili powder and other spices to make a powder, called 'narthellai podi', literally translating to 'powder of citron leaves'. Both narthangai and narthellai podi are usually consumed with thayir sadam.

The East Asian citrus fruit yuzu (also called yuja) is sometimes called a citron, it is actually a separate species, Citrus junos.

Recommendation : Hebrew Word Pictures

Hebrew Word Pictures
Dr. Frank T. Seekins, who has spent 12 years developing and arranging the archaic Hebrew letters into a complete concept that is both enlightening and heart warming.

What is a word picture?

* In ancient Hebrew, like in Chinese and ancient Egyptian, every word is formed by adding pictures together to "paint" or illustrate the meaning of the word. A word picture is a word that is described by pictures.

* You don't have to be able to read Hebrew in order to understand and to
use this book effectively when you read the Bible.

* When Hebrew was first written, each letter represented both a sound and a
picture. Even if you or the people you teach are not familiar with the Hebrew
sounds and have no experience with this language, the pictures you see inside the words will speak for themselves.

Why is Hebrew Word Pictures are important to believers?

"Every so often, something comes along that can help move your spiritual life into
high gear. I'm convinced that Frank Seekins' concept of "Hebrew Word
Pictures" is such a concept. With so many books and conference about
biblical principles, this one can help you better understand and love God's Word
As someone who's studied "word pictures" for years, seeing them come
alive in the very letters of Scripture is like adding color to a classic movie. I highly
recommend it for anyone interested in gaining a deeper love and understanding
of the Scriptures.

John Trent, ph.D
Author, Speaker
President of Encouraging Words

Hebrew Word Pictures is used in many seminaries across the country, in Bible
study classes, by individuals seeking a deeper level of understanding their
Christian heritage, and by parents homeschooling their children.

A word from the author

"I believe that the Hebrew word pictures were designed by God as a tool for
Biblical discipleship and teaching his holy words. One constant response I hear, is
that the Hebrew word pictures create a new hunger for what the Bible teaches.
What I love about the Hebrew word pictures is that they draw people back to
the Bible.

This is not an ordinary book that you read and then set aside - Hebrew
Word Pictures is a guide for life that shows new things in your life as times
goes by and you experience new events that you test with the Hebrew
word pictures.

We now carry the new version of the book. It has 60 new pages with many
Hebrew examples and references, plus the book includes an Audio CD that will
help you learn the word pictures and hear all the examples on your home
