Can someone provide me with the English translation of the following?
Tikatayvuh Vtechateymu< /p>
Hi Max,That's the way Jewish people congratulate others for the comming new year. Tikatevu = is in free translation "I wish that your names will be written in the book of life". Ve = and Tichatemu = you will be signed (approved) to the book of life. According to the Jewish religion G-d judges each and every person as follows: puts the good thing that person did against the bad things and those who were finds "worth" are written in the book of life. Later on at Yom-Kippur G-d signs the book (final decision). Techatemu comes from the Hebrew word "signiture" [reads in Hebrew Cha'ti'ma...... "ch" is like "J" in Spanish (Juan, Julio...)Best regards,
In hebrew it is: תכתבו ותחתמו and Oron gave you a perfrct answer.
