how to say "a moment of silence" in Hebrew


having trouble seeing the print?
דַּקָּה דּוּמִיָּה, רֶגַע שֶׁל דּוּמִיָּה

One appropriate emotional response to tragedy such as that which took place the other day in Connecticut, is to be silent.

On a communal level, sometimes a moment of silence is observed.

Hebrew has two terms for this:

דַּקָּה דּוּמִיָּה
literally, a minute silent


רֶגַע שֶׁל דּוּמִיָּה
literally, a moment of silence
