How do you welcome someone in Hebrew?
Welcome in hebrew is baruch aba or beruchim abaim in plural.
In hebrew, we write it like this : ברוך הבא in singular or ברוכים הבאים in plural.
We use the letters: Beth, Resh, Vav, Ch’et Sofit, He, Beth and Aleph, the first letter of Hebrew alphabet.
We literally bless the person who comes.
Baruch means “blessed“.
So in Hebrew we literally say : “blessed is the comer “.
