One of the most common words heard on the lips of Israelis these days is, unfortunately, the one for shelter - מִקְלָט listen and repeat. The word first appears in the Torah portion to be read this Shabbat by Jews around the world, where cities of refuge are to be set up around Israel as well as in Israelite Transjordan.
The word's root is ק.ל.ט (k.l.t) meaning to absorb: a shelter or a refuge is a place that absorbs those seeking it.
The word in context:
בִּדְרוֹם הָאָרֶץ, אֲנָשִׁים רָצִים לְמִקְלָטִים כַּמָּה פְּעָמִים בְּשָׁעָה.
In the south of the country (Israel), people run to shelters several times an hour.
