The Jewish Language Project is proud to announce that we are adding pronunciation recordings to all entries, based on the requests of many visitors. We invite you to support this important initiative by donating funds, volunteering to record entries, and sharing the crowdfunding campaign:
Help Newcomers Pronounce Jewish Words!
If we meet our fundraising goal by May 3, you can expect to see - and hear! - the pronunciations on this site by late June.

Thank you for contributing to the Jewish English Lexicon. Please refer to the notes for some helpful guidelines.

Please enter the most common spelling and any other alternate spellings. The system will check if the word already exists.
