Anyone speak fluent Hebrew?

כִּפַּת בַּרְזֶל

I know that it refers to the Iron Dome. But is that a literal translation?

Thanks.

No, but I do enjoy eating a Hebrew National Kosher Hot Dog when I go to Costco.

Sorry, couldn’t resist...

“Keefat Barzal,” or “Parasol of Thailand.”

Barzel means literally iron. It is one of the 5 PRINCIPLES of the JDL.
I Ahavat Yisroel – Love of Jewry
II Hadar – Dignity and Pride
III Barzel – Iron
IV Mishmaat – Discipline and Unity
V Bitachon – Faith in the Indestructability of the Jewish People.

The translation is Iron Dome.

“Kipa” can mean: covering, yamulka, dome, cupola.

“Barzel” can mean: metal, steel, iron.

So Iron Dome is appropriate.

The reason I asked is because in the Book of Mormon there is mention of people that dwelt under a dome.

Supposedly it was part of a vision that some one experienced wherein there were also mentions of iron.

Chapter and verse, please?

“I speak jive...”

Then it translates into something like “I keek yawl asz”.

According to Google Translate, it’s “Iron Dome.”

Yes, it is a literal translation. Kipat Barzel = Iron Dome.

Speaking Hebrew doesn’t do me much good under the regime of Dear Leader. I am studying Ebonics so I can say things like “I be wantin’ my Obamaphone!”

Thanks - most of us are 'illiterate' in these matters.
