Word of the Day / Nitla be'ilan gadol נִתְלָה בְּאִילָן גָּדוֹל
For Tu Bishvat, Israeli Arbor Day, we dissect a phrase that has to do with hanging from a large tree. Don't worry, it isn't as morbid as it sounds.
One might think that a phrase combining the words "large tree" and "hanging" would have kind of morbid overtones. But fortunately for those who would rather not put their necks on the line, the phrase nitla be'ilan gadol (neet-LA be-ee-LAHN ga-DOHL) has nothing to do with rope.
