Izzy here. You know you're really into Hebrew when you begin seeing Hebrew letters in your breakfast! Here are some "breakfast doodles" from Stephen Rankin, one of the tribe.
He says, "Hebrew can really get to you when you start to learn it seriously. This is a Mem doodled on my breakfast kefir with date syrup...it's me with my date syrup on kefir again. I wanted to write shin in honour of Shabbat. But it seems that I have ended up with sin instead. This often seems to happen with human endeavour...Bet and a very slimline Lamed. As shown here, it spells LeV which means heart."
What kind of nifty things are you doing with Hebrew? Tell me about it here!
