Word of the Day / Karikh
Ironically enough, we eat sandwiches during the Passover seder too, at least as far as Hebrew is concerned.
If you go to Israeli coffeehouses, one of the main food items on their menu will probably be a karikh (kah-REEKH). That is the official Hebrew word for "sandwich," though Israelis are just as likely to refer to it as a SAHND-veech.
