Savta

My Savta A"H passed away this past Shabbat.  She is now with Saba in Gan Eden.

Endearing to all who knew her
Interested in all that we did
Satisfied to know that we didn't leave hungry
Heart that was full of gold
Established in her community
Torah surrounded her life

Her home was full of love
Always there when needed
Yours truly was her oldest grandchild of 17
I had that special merit to call her "Savta" first
Loved, she was, by family and numerous friends

Mommy lost her Mom
I lost my Savta

Yet her memory lives on
In the minds of those who knew her
Many will recall how she attended Shiurim
Though others will remember her open home
Zion she yearned for when she made Aliya
Again with Saba whom she adored

It sounds like your Savta set a very good example for her grandchildren. In the parsha of Emor, Rashi says that the kohanim should convey to the children-your Savta sounds like she conveyed a great deal for you to follow. Boruch dayan ha'emes.

So sorry to hear this. B"H you were fortunate to know her for as long as you did. I never had that opportunity and miss it very much. All I could do was to visit her grave.

It is pronounced "safta." Savta was a person in the Torah.

yaak, you are wrong and Anonymous 9:14 was correct:

Noach perek 10, pasuq 7

Anonymous 2:17,

I know exactly which verse Anonymous 9:14 refers to. Nevertheless, the commenter is mistaken to say "Savta" is pronounced with an "f".

I didn't want to have to do this, but I'm afraid I must.

Go to translate.google.com, type in "grandmother", and change the destination language to Hebrew. Notice that the second letter of the word is a ב. If people pronounce it Safta, it's because they are either ignorant or lazy in proper speech.

Yaak,

I am SO gad you said this!

This is a pet peeve of mine.

There is even a website called Davka, spelled with an "f."

I kept asking him what "dafka" meant, and he kept responding as if I was the ignorant one.

I thought "dafka" was lashon "dofeq." But I'm pretty sure he meant "dawqa" (davka).

Go figure...

;-)
