Explanation:
Shalom

or

Lehitraot
http://www.geocities.com/mailjohan/meast.html



Many of us know that Shalom means "hello, peace, and goodbye." But often we say goodbye in Hebrew not with the formal "shalom," but instead with a casual l'hitraot, meaning "see you soon." Shalom is more final (think of President Clinton's famous "Shalom Haver (Goodbye, Friend)" eulogy for Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

Lehitra'ot (See ya') or Lehit' for short
LeHishtame'ah (Hope to hear from you)
Kol Tuv (all the Best)
Tihiyeh (or Heyei) li bari (Be well) - Probably from the Yiddish
Shalom or Shalom, Shalom (the "music" that goes with this word is
Critical to its understanding)
In Modern Hebrew one often hears: "Lehit' bye"

neutral  Eynat: There is nothing casual about l'hitraot: it's the std translation. L'hit bye is slang, not 'Modern Hebrew'. The glossary term chosen is wrong.

  -> even my husband is wrong?;)))))) (native speaker!!!)

agree  Sue Goldian: As a Hebrew speaker I can tell you for sure that l'hitraot is standard and not casual, and l'hit bye is slang - l'hit is short for l'hitraot and bye, of course, is English and not Hebrew at all! And shalom is NOT a translation of adios.
