Is hummus a “traditional” Israeli dish? 1938 Hebrew culinary glossary shows it was then considered exotic not native https://t.co/nwPpYqRJbm

Thank you David Sheen for drawing attention to the fact that Tel Aviv was a thriving city way before Israel’s establishment in 1948 – as well as to the existence of the Hebrew Culinary glossary (1938), put out by the Hebrew Language Committee…all the way back in 1890!
..established in 1890 by Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, who was its first president. As Hebrew became the spoken language in Palestine and was adopted by the educational system, the Hebrew Language Committee published bulletins and dictionaries. It coined thousands of words that are in everyday use today
Stick to Hamas instead.
