A Less-Terse English-Hebrew Dictionary for Olim

This "dictionary" will never be comprehensive; I do not have the resources for that.

The motivation for posting what I call a "less-terse" dictionary for olim is that I often found with many of the well-known English/Hebrew and Hebrew/English dictionaries, even after looking up and finding a word's translation, I still was not sure what it meant due to the several meanings of the word given as the translation. In this dictionary, I will try to use such simple tools such as giving multiple words for the translation, or using the translated word in a sentence, in order to give you a better feel for what the proper translation is.

This, and even the Hebrew-English dictionary, will be geared to the English-speaker trying to function in Hebrew. I do not know enough to help the Hebrew-speaker function in English. Also, this likely will be most helpful to the relatively new oleh - It shouldn't take you long to surpass me.
