Keep up the good work[edit]

You could copy parts of your user page to Israeli literature and greatly improve that article. Have you visited List of Hebrew language authors? It's just a list, but maybe it could help you set priorities for your project, or maybe you could improve the list. --Woggly 19:42, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC) Sorry, stupid me, of course you've visited the list. Didn't mean to insult you! --Woggly 19:44, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC) In my opinion, the most important Israeli authors who don't have a Wikipedia article yet are A. B. Yehoshua, Meir Shalev and David Grossman; and Agnon could definitely do with a serious expansion. Amos Oz too, though thanks to User:Jmabel at least there's a good stub in place. --Woggly 20:26, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I really appreciate your informed suggestions. I had forgotten about Israeli literature, especially since I'm far from expert, but I think I'll take your suggestion. As you can see, I started working on authors that I want to read for fun and for current vernacular Hebrew. But some fellow students are reading through the Hebrew articles with me. As a group we have indeed set a higher priority on the greats such as A. B. Yehoshua. Hoziron 20:51, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC)
One of the reasons I would like to see you copy your list of authors to Israeli literature is that I'd like to edit it a bit, but I believe it rude to edit other people's user pages. --Woggly 08:48, 3 Jan 2005 (UTC)
OK, I'm just concerned that I incorporated many phrases from the referenced articles without clear attribution. Maybe if I just put them in quotes, it will become possible to rewrite them. Hoziron 15:05, 3 Jan 2005 (UTC) OK, I did that and interpolated it into Israeli literature. That article no longer consists primarily of encyclopedia-style prose. But I'm sure we Wikipedians will fix it. Hoziron 15:36, 3 Jan 2005 (UTC)

See my notes at Talk:Batya Gur. I hope you don't mind my corrections, for the most part you've been doing really well. --Woggly 08:09, 4 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I don't mind. To save you some corrections I can (1) use a better dictionary, (2) use Google as a concordance, and (3) watch the articles and read the differences when they change. As I don't have a deep background in the material or the language, I'm bound to make more mistakes. I won't let that stop me. I'll just be careful not to propagate information that might be unfounded, unfair, or libelous. Hoziron 14:17, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC) ...or plagiarized. Avoiding that might require some actual work. Hmmm. Hoziron 04:52, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)


Shalom Hoziron, do you have an Email address? You can reach me through my Wikipedia User page and click on "E-mail this user". Thanks IZAK 09:13, 20 May 2005 (UTC)


Shalom Hoziron: Please contact User:Humus sapiens who wishes to start a Wikipedia:Wikiportal/Israel See his request below. Thanks IZAK 07:17, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

Hi IZAK (and everyone else here :), Do you think it's time to create Wikipedia:Wikiportal/Israel similar to Wikipedia:Wikiportal/India, Wikipedia:Wikiportal/New Zealand and other Category:Wikiportals? I'm writing this here because it was you who made those wonderful templates and we don't have a portal yet where we could communicate. What do you think? Humus sapiensTalk 05:26, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

  • Hi Humus, it's only me here, but I will pass your message on to "everyone". Yes, your suggestion is excellent, it is certainly time for what you describe, but I have no experience with Wikipedia portals, and if you know how, go ahead and start an Israel portal and I am sure editors of Israel-related articles will support you and join in the effort/s. Behatzlachah. IZAK 05:33, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

Shmuel Yosef Agnon[edit]

I'm not systematically changing external link references to interwiki-style links if that's what you're worried about. There have probably been a handful of other similar cases, but I can't recall which articles or what dates. -- Curps 15:42, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

Sami Michael[edit]

Would you like to suggest somewhere else to put the information about the contents of his books and about his own characterization of his youthful self? You cut more sentences than you left behind. Sami Michael is worth a few more words. --Hoziron 17:52, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

If you have a look at Somerset Maugham who wrote many well known books, you will see it is an article about him, with only two paragraphs re book content. Better still, look at Dan Brown. It's also about the man, not a treatise on the contents of his books. There are links tho, such as to The Da Vinci Code which is a pretty good standalone article about the book. Maybe some of Michael's work deserves similar treatment?Moriori 21:27, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Hebrew Alphabet[edit]

Saw this message, what do you think of it? IZAK 06:39, 25 December 2005 (UTC):

"I have rewritten the articles on all the Hebrew letters here and before I replace the pages, your input would be appreciated. Thanks! Sputnikcccp 16:26, 23 December 2005 (UTC)"

Nice Translation[edit]

I liked your translation of the prologue of my article Bulb to light all Ramat Gan SHASHAZ 10:42, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Hebrew NCs[edit]

We are having an argument on Hebrew naming conventions in Talk:List of Egged bus lines. Please take a look. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 10:48, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Front page languages[edit]

I agree with your criticisms of the main page languages lay-out change. I've made some suggestions that may help rectify the situation a little at Talk:Main Page. I thought your comments were well thought-out and well-argued, hopefully I have been able to address them a little. TheGrappler 16:03, 23 July 2006 (UTC) 16:03, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Your contact info[edit]

Hi Hoziron: Hope you are well. You have not enabled your Wikipedia Email feature in your "tool box" on the left hand side of your user page. Sometimes editors overlook that when it's a useful way of staying in touch with other editors. Best wishes. IZAK 15:32, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your interest. So far I have chosen not to be contacted by email regarding Wikipedia. Sometimes I really don't have attention for Wikipedia. When I do, I can be reached on my talk page. I suppose I could put up a "wikivacation" indicator. Thanks, Hoziron 19:53, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Pedro II of Brazil and Hebrew[edit]

The source is here, but is in portuguese. Actually he translated a portion of Camões, and other poets to hebrew, after all, he was a good friend of the jewish community. I will try to translate:

"(...) D. Pedro continuou estudando sempre a língua hebraica. Traduziu Camões para o hebraico, passou partes do Velho Testamento do hebraico para o latim, dentre elas o Cânticos dos Cânticos, Isaías, e Jó."

"(...) D. Pedro always keep studying the hebrew language. He translated Camões to the hebrew, and portions of the Old Testament from hebrew to latin, among them Song of Songs, Isaiah, and Job." Rafael, the Gawain 16:14, 11 December 2006 (UTC)


Thank you so much for your source from the Yerushalmi. If you ever want to practice your Hebrew, feel free to write back to me in that. : ). כל טוב,Avraham 07:50, 14 December 2006 (UTC)


Could you make for for vowels and dipthongs like you did for consonants at Help talk:IPA for Hebrew? It is for the benefit of this article Hebraization of English. Thanks. - Epson291 (talk) 18:59, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, I found the source (pdf file). Epson291 (talk) 19:17, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Avigdor Hameiri[edit]

If you have the time, you might work on translating his article from Ivrit. Thanks! Lazer Stein (talk) 20:23, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
