If you already know a bit of Hebrew, you're bound to know the word for to remember - לִזְכּוֹר, an active-simple פָּעַל verb of the root ז.כ.ר (z.k.r).

One of the words that the root ז.כ.ר generates is מַזְכֶּרֶת- souvenir (see earlier entry). Another is זִכָּרוֹן- memory or remembrance, as in the phrase, יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן- The Day of Remembrance or Memorial Day.


Another word that the ז.כ.ר root produces is that for a reminder - תִּזְכּוֹרֶת.

For example:


מִי שֶׁנִּמְצָא בָּאָרֶץ לֹא צָרִיךְ תִּזְכּוֹרֶת שֶׁהָעֶרֶב וּמָחָר יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן לְחַלָלֵי מַעַרְכוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל וּלְנִפְגְּעֵי פְּעֻלּוֹת הָאֵיבָה.
Whoever is in Israel (literally, the land) doesn't need a reminder that this evening and tomorrow is the Day of Remembrance for Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism.
