Arrow : no jew says "basharet"

no jew says "basharet"

I don't know where they pulled that up from. it's a iidish word but no modern jew would say it in a casual conversation.

also "Krav maga" is highly overrated and I always laugh when they mention it as some sort of supreme martial arts.

(i'm israeli by the way)

So, what's the Hebrew/Israeli word for "soul mate" or "destiny"?

Re: no jew says "basharet"

soul mate in Hebrew would be "Nefesh Teoma"

Re: no jew says "basharet"

dunno about stuff like this but I wouldn't use an absolute word like no and then follow it by saying a group of people.

Re: no jew says "basharet"

It's typical over emphasis of culture. They just can't let anyone just be something. Curtis is gay so we have to constantly hear about it, Rory Regan is Jewish so they always have him talking about Jewish traditions and saying old Yiddish or Hebrew words.

They've been forcing the Jewish proverbs and vocab via the Ragman character. I love an ethnocentric origin story for a superhero but it seems like they've forced this poor actor to fill a quota of "one Hebrew word per episode."

Well, if this article is right, it's not even a Hebrew word, but a Yiddish word derived from German:

Since Yiddish is primarely based on various European dialects (with many Hebrew words), maybe it's more correct to say "one Yiddish word per episode"?😀

Of course, to many US Ashkenazi Jews "Jewish culture=Yiddish culture", and I guess the Guggenheim/Kreisberg/Schwartz Jewish contingent on "Arrow" would share that sentiment.

Re: no jew says "basharet"

You're right. I was taking a hit-or-miss swing going with Hebrew over Yiddish. It was one of those! I love German as a language so naturally, I always had an interest in Yiddish. If I had the time, I would be fluent in it!
