Randi, I, too, to be sorry the someone flamed you here on HubPages. Ns can't believe it! That's specifically what's wrong through the world...and your Hub is a an excellent starting place: finding out to say the word "love" but additionally the definition of it. Ns definitely think in the old 70s song: "What the people needs now is love, sweet love..."!

What i love around this hub? You help your reader learn a small about deeper linguistics: the a indigenous in use has actually a depth semantic definition than merely its dictionary definition. It offers your reader a home window into the language and also culture.

Your Hub incorporates every the facets of a "stellar Hub:" well-researched, well-explained, evergreen content; a table; great pictures (and advantageous ones that room sourced); a map to aid people visualize where in the people you space talking about; and a video! You also bring in a popular commercial product (Ahava) to help people make relationships to something castle possibly already know about, which is an excellent language teaching - I can tell you supplied to teach! mine friend brought me my an initial Ahava products when he checked out visit the Dead Sea, before they became widely obtainable here in the US...and when I first saw the Hebrew word for love in your Hub, I had actually my "Aha"va moment! good hub!!!

BTW, your responses to the unwarranted vitriol were an extremely classy and humane. I guideline my cap to you, Dame Randi! (I'm not sure I can have to be so loving, myself. You verified the "action" component of ahava towards other humans.)
