לְשַׁמֵר – to preserve, to can (food)

November 26, 2011

Not that our garden was very successful this year, but. While debating what word to use, and realizing it’s been a while since I chose a verb – I figured I’d pick something seasonally appropriate, especially as it starts getting colder here in the US….

Our verb for today – to preserve, to can (food). It also can mean to be conservative or to guard.
