Hi!

I've got a few items that I'd love to have translated, but I'd really like to start with this bowl.

In the center is a large seemingly brass medal.



Thanks so much!

I am no expert in Ivrit (an adult learner myself), but I can help a bit. The design on the bas-relief shows it to be fairly modern, say, 1950s?. The inscription is an taken from Psalm 126: "Hazorim b'deyma, b'reyna yiktzoro"—"Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy." The inscription relates to returning to Israel, and sowing seeds that will bear fruit—i.e., planting and enhancing the land. This psalm, which is considered prophetic, is chanted at the Birkat Ha-Mazon (Grace after Meals) on Shabbat, Yomin Tovim (holydays), and festive occsions, such as weddings.a

Just browsing around. I only recently discovered the foreign-language forums recently. I'm a rank novice in Ivrit, but improving a bit every day.
