Ode to the Hebrew-English dictionary.

If you are an oleh in university, feel free to identify with me right now.

Today I took (what was hopefully) my very last final ever. It was arbitration law, it was in Hebrew legalese, it was painful, and now, barring any failure, I can look back and say thank you to my closest academic companion from the last two years: My Hebrew-English dictionary.

As an oleh and a student, one really must show this tome the respect it deserves. I’m sure I’ve looked up hundreds of words multiple times. It’s always been there for me.
