THANK YOU to those who have already helped!
I'm late on the word of the day... so I figured I'd give y'all a double portion.
I remember, either from science class as a kid or from my mom telling me, that veins bring blood to the heart, while arteries take blood away from the heart.
In Hebrew, veins are וְרִידִים (vree-DEEM), while arteries are עוֹרָקִים (oh-rah-KEEM).
For example, אֲנִי מַרְגִּישׁ אֶת הַדָּם זוֹרֵם לִי בַּוְּרִידִים (ah-NEE mahr-GHEESH et hah-DAHM zoh-REM lee bah-vree-DEEM) - I feel my (the) blood flowing through my veins (literally, flowing for me in the veins).
See the title for the singulars.
Check out two special events going on at AACI and Telfed this week (one my own, another close to my heart)
