Topics Definition of Modern Hebrew Words
By Jeff A. Benner
A very important Hebrew phrase one will need if visiting the land of Israel is איפה השירותים (eypho hashirutim). The word איפה (eyphoh, Strong's #375) means “where.” The word השירותים includes the prefix ה (ha) meaning “the,” the noun שירות (shirut, from the root Sh.R.T, Strong’s #8334) meaning “service,” and the suffix ים (im), which pluralizes the noun-services. Literally this phrase means “where are the services?” but we would say in English “where is the toilet?”
