Hi, I noticed some of your contributions and found them of high quality. ←Humus sapiens ну? 04:18, 10 May 2006 (UTC)


Welcome to Wikipedia as an editor. I was intrigued by your change to the Change ringing article as I had not heard the term tintinnalogia before. Could you expand on this or point to some references in contemporary pages or literature? If you have the time and research to add any sort of article about Fabian Steadman I am sure it would be welcomed (especially by me). I was amazed to discover that Stedman's Principle was such an early invention and so different compared to all the usual methods rung today. Congratulations on taking the plunge into the world of editing. Keep it up! Oosoom 10:01, 10 May 2006 (UTC)


My compliments on adding the Hebrew for this name. Might I ask your source? I'm not trying to be strict about references or anything; I ask out of curiosity becuase I've never seen anything from Judaism about this archangel. TCC (talk) (contribs) 02:11, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

No doubt it got a little mangled passing through Greek, as these things tend to. TCC (talk) (contribs) 04:42, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
Γ was originally hard, but it had softened by the time Koine Greek developed and the first translations were made into it from Hebrew scriptures, so I don't doubt your speculation about the borrowing process is correct.
In Eastern Orthodox tradition there are seven archangels. Aside from the obvious four, the other three are Jegudiel, Barachiel, and Selaphiel. The last is thought to be mentioned (in a fairly ambiguous context, it seems to me) in the deuterocanonical 2 Esdras 5:16, but I've never seen anything else about possible Jewish sources for these angels anywhere. Although I'm generally confident in the accuracy of the tradition in most areas, I have to admit I'm mildly surprised that the meanings attributed to their names can be plausibly back-translated to something similar in Hebrew. That suggests a genuine (if obscure or widely rejected) Jewish source for them, but I know of no studies on the subject. Not that I'm particularly well-read, but now I'm sufficiently curious to ask around. TCC (talk) (contribs) 06:27, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Israel[edit]

Israel Rosenberg[edit]

Do you have any basis for saying that the the name of the Israel Rosenberg about whom we have an article ever had his name written "Yisroel"? It is transcribed as "Yisrol" in Lulla Rosenfeld's translation of Jacob Adler's memoir. The only possibly vaguely relevant Google hit on "Yisroel Rosenberg" is this page in the Freedman Catalogue, but it seems to be a later person: Israel Rosenberg died in 1903, and this has a song by "Yisroel Rosenberg" as being from a 1926 operetta. Further, it has his lyrics and Harry Lubin's music; Lubin was born in 1906. - Jmabel | Talk 19:25, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Yisrol, Yosroel, Yisrael, Israel is the same name, spelt in Hebrew ישראל. Israel Rosenberg is the etymologically correct spelling. However, because the Hebrew/Yiddish may be pronounced differently by different speakers (based on their dialect), there is no uniform phonetic spelling. Thus, Israelis would pronounce his name as Yisrael, while in Yiddish it may vary from Yisroel, Yisruel to Yisrol or Yisrul. Anyway, including both Yisroel (proper Yiddish) and the vernacular Yisrol should solve the dilemma (if you opt for phonetic spelling, then Rosenberg should be also spelt Rozenberg.

You're doing good job here, there are many things I would love to share about Yemenite Jews.

Matters that honestly I need to tell[edit]

Shalom aleichem Eliyyahu, there is something that honestly I need to tell you. Actually my native language is Malay (Bahasa Melayu) and I m from Malaysia and I m a ethnic Malay and a Muslim, from since I have an account on Wiki Hebrew, do you remember when I send the message there in Wiki Hebrew? Also, although I m a Malay and most Malay hate Jew, I m actually love things about Jew, and in fact, I m even sing some song in Hebrew at my house. Also, MasyaAllah, why I m so intelligent that even the intelligence of Jews are defeat. And also, honestly maybe I have a Jewish blood because I have a descendant from Penang and according to an article about Jews of Penang, why don't you read Malaysian Jews for more detail. Because of this, actually I lie to you. Will you forgive me for the lying? I hope that you will consider this. Toda and lehitra'ot. — Imran Al-Sahih 15:35, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Just to stop by...[edit]

Hi Eliyyahu, I m really addicted to Wikipedia and just to say that I m more comfortable in Wiki en and ms, the workforce here is so amazing, 2 mil article has been here, but I m more active in Wiki ms, and in fact, I was once an administrator there. Well, I see that you contribute mostly on prominent figures, very charming indeed. Did you know, recently I saw in the newspaper, Chelsea have beat Valencia 2-1? So Avram Grant have got his winning wish. Truthfully, I don't like Chelsea not because merely of Avram Grant of course, but because Roman Abramovich, he's quite a self-tyrant in Chelsea club to me. Btw, why don't you contribute in your Hebrew wiki, I see that in there you don't really quite active. I wonder why? Also, why don't you teach me a piano lesson if you have a chance, I love piano, I used to play piano once when I was a child. Ok, just reply to me if you wish. Alright, I got to go, bye. — Muhammad Imran Bin Kamil 17:06, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Your edit to Fitna (film)[edit]

Hello Eliyyahu! I reverted this edit you made to Fitna (film), in which you replaced the url of the official website with a link to Only the official website should be in the film's infobox. I know it is currently defunct, but you never know what happens to it in the future. In case you are fearing that people might not find the movie: don't worry, there's a link to Wikileaks at the bottom of the article. Cheers, Face 18:44, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Hebrew/Arabic Linguistic Comparison[edit]

hello, my name is Josh, I'm a student of semitic linguistics, and I wanted to ask you a bit about Ibn Barun, and where one could find more info on him. I've been thinking of writing my MA thesis on a comparative lexicon of Hebrew and Arabic, basically a dictionary of cognates, and to find out about this Ibn Barun cat who did that in the 10th century, well it's really amazing. I would love to find the Kitab al-Muwazana, do you know how one might track that down? you can get in touch with me through my website thank you!

Your opinion in Amnon Yitzhak[edit]

user:shuki is trying to remove the following which is, as you can see, well sourced. I would appreciate you opinion. Mashkin (talk) 19:23, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

"According to ynet, Yitzhak "is considered to have a clear anti-Zionist position, similar to that of the Satmar Hassidim. Like them, he boycotts the Knesset elections. This view is extremely rare among the Haredi-Mizrahi public, and even rarer among Mizrahi Baalei Teshuva - Amnon Yitzhak's primary target audience." [1]"

Rudolf Levy[edit]

Noticed on your user page that you planned on writing the above linked article. I assume it's the same person that I wrote about, so I would be delighted if you can add to the articles. Best, --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 17:39, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Population updates[edit]

Hello Eliyyahu. If you want to update the populations for Israeli localities, please do not remove {{Israel populations}}. This template was created so that articles could be automatically updated every year when the CBS releases the new figures – all articles automatically update when the template is updated, so instead of updating 1,000+ articles, we only have to update the template. If you remove the template (as you have done from multiple articles), it will no longer work. I will shortly be reverting all your edits where you removed it, and will update the population template as soon as the CBS releases the full set (as you can see here, 2015 hasn't been published yet). If you want to help out, it would be better if you could add the template to articles that don't have it yet. Thanks, Number 57 17:26, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

I see you are still removing the template. Please stop. Thanks, Number 57 18:37, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
I don't think you've understood fully. We will update the population template as soon as the full set of 2015 figures are available. I saw what you were using as a reference, and that is limited to a few places – as far as I am aware, the full set is not yet publicly available – however, if you're aware of the full set being available, please point me to it and I will update immediately.
If this isn't the case, hopefully this will be a matter of days. In the meantime, it's extremely unhelpful for you to remove the template for the sake of a few days. Please have some patience. It would also be much more helpful if you could add the template to articles rather than the new populations, as it will save future work. As I said, I will update the template as soon as the full dataset is released. Number 57 19:31, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:55, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
