Hebrew In Israel | Compassion/Rachamim – Learn Torah

No Comments

A word which keeps on coming up in conversation with friends and students is the רחמים- Rachamim -mercy/compassion from the root רחם.  What is interesting about this word is, that the root is used in other Semitic languages such as Aramaic and can mean “to love”.  As always we have to be very carful in comparing words, but I still find it interesting that compassion and love have a close relationship.  Even if the ח is historically different in these two words, we can still find a connection between them.
