Word of the Day Eser

If you want your Hebrew to be a perfect 10, take note of this numerical word, which in colloquial Hebrew means something is pretty great.

In a roundup of YouTube hits that was published before that other new year (the Jewish one), a Ynet article presented a Top 10 list whose headline began "Haya eser." While this literally means "It was 10," eser in colloquial Hebrew also means "great" or one of its many slang equivalents.
