how to say "a clear, beautiful morning" in Hebrew...

בֹּקֶר צַח

Conversational Hebrew classes
starting in Tel Aviv end of August
Levels 1 and 2 intensive - afternoon, evening
Classes in other locations will be announced soon.

Today, the Jewish festival of love, was a gorgeous day in Jerusalem. The temperature throughout the day was warm but not too hot, the air was clear (as usual), and the morning was cool.

A brisk, clear morning in Hebrew is called בֹּקֶר צַח (BOH-kehr tsahkh), where צח means clear, pure, unblemished. It's not only a description of the morning itself - it's also a wish you might bestow upon someone, much like בוקר טוֹב - good morning (BOH-kehr tohv).

You can use the same word to wish someone a good evening, especially if it's nice outside, with עֶרֶב צַח (EH-rev tsahkh).

Today's dose of Hebrew is sponsored by Yom Tov

I've seen his amazing art at Hechal Shlomo and even acquired a piece myself.

Check out Yom Tov's virtual gallery,
and visit his Kohelet exhibition in Jerusalem.
It's open 
throughout the summer.
