Hebrew offers you many choices of ways to say hello and good-bye. Here are a few things to say in greeting:

  • Shalom. (shah-lohm; Hello; peace.)
  • Mah Ha'Inyanim? (mah hah-in-yah-neem; How are things?)
  • Mah Nishmah? (mah neesh-mah ; What's up?)
  • Mah Shlomcha? (mah sh-lohm-chah; How are you? Literally: How is your welfare?) (Masculine)
  • Mah Shlomech? (mah sh-loh-mehch; How are you? Literally: How is your welfare?) (Feminine)
  • Mah Shlom'chem? (mah sh-lohm-chehm; How are you?) (Masculine Plural/ Feminine Plural)

Ah, but parting is such sweet sorrow. When you have to hit the road, use one of these phrases to say good-bye:

  • Shalom. (shah-lohm; Peace.)
  • Kol Tuv. (kohl toov; Be well.)
  • L'hitraot. (leh-hee-trah-oht; See you soon.)
Greeting all day longto a greeting

Knowing how to say hello and good-bye is a great start. But, if you want to get past the initial hello, you need a few more phrases in your back pocket (like what to say when someone asks how you're doing). Who knows? These phrases could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

Some responses to greetings are:

  • Shlomi Tov. (sh-loh-mee tohv; My welfare is good.)
  • Etzli B'seder Gamur. (ehtz-lee buh-seh-dehr gah-moohr; With me, things are completely okay.)
  • B'seder. (beh-seh-dehr; Okay.)
  • Mamash Tov. (mah-mahsh tohv; Really good.)
  • Lo Kol-Kach Tov. (loh kohl-kahch tohv; Not so good.)
