This is the theme of the annual celebration of the word “Synonym.”
In celebration of “Synonymous,” the name of the synonym for the term “Jewish,” the Israel Museum will host a free festival on March 21, the anniversary of its founding.
The Israel Museum in Jerusalem celebrates its founding by holding a “synonym festival” to celebrate the word’s significance.
It is not clear whether this event will be held at the Museum itself, or if it will be hosted by the Israel Foundation, the Israeli government body that runs the museum.
The Israeli government has in the past been critical of the use of synonyms, but it has also tried to push the word onto schools, libraries, and online in a bid to educate youngsters about its meaning.
In 2016, the Israel Institute for Educational Research, a public relations arm of the government, published a list of synonym synonyms that are widely used in Israeli society.
In many cases, it was unclear whether the synonyms were actually synonyms or whether the authors of the list were trying to “correct” the meaning of the term in a way that the government disapproves.
Israel has made it very clear that it does not support using synonyms as a noun.
In a speech delivered in 2015, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for synonyms to be removed from the English language.
“We want synonyms of all kinds to be in the Hebrew language,” he said.
“The synonyms are there, but we want to be able to pronounce them.
We want to have the word, but without all the meanings.
I think it’s the most important thing.”
In response to the growing popularity of the concept of synonymous, the Jerusalem Post’s Ari Shavit asked, “If you were to start calling synonyms synonyms now, would that be a bad thing?
Or is that a good thing?”
Shavit’s question was answered by the Israeli Culture Ministry.
The ministry said that synonyms would remain a “central part” of the Hebrew education curriculum, but that it was not interested in changing the meaning.
Instead, the ministry said it would consider introducing a separate curriculum for the “synonymous” meaning of synodas, in which synonyms can be explained in detail and a student can ask questions to find out what the meaning is.
This would make the term synonym “a kind of tool for learning” and “a way to explore the synodality of the entire Hebrew language.”
