  • curious says:

  • dikduk says:

    bubby i hope your not the one teaching your einiklach hebrew.
    a women is a nifteres but she was not niftera. she was nifter.
    when speaking directly about the person then you say היא נפטרה however when you are speaking about the fact that a person passed away (as in this case where the article is not speaking about the nifteres but rather about the person sitting shiva due the someone having been nifter) then the correct word is nifter even if it was a women

  • Dr Laura says:

  • Morning says:
