English term or phrase: RACHEL
WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE WORD RACHEL LOOKS LIKE IN HEBREW
RACHEL SJODIN
Hebrew translation:Ewe (Mature female sheep) = Rachel = רחל
Explanation:
Ewe (Mature female sheep)= Rachel = רחל
Rachel is also the name of the name of the second wife of Jacob (the son of Isaac and grand-son of abraham in the bible). He worked 14 years to get her, after being obliged to marry first her elder sister. Today it's a common name in Israel among traditional people, somehow archaic among laics, but it's a question of changing mode.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the name of Leah, the elder sister of Rachel. Rachel was also a greatly praised poet who lived and died close to the Kinereth Lake during the pioneer period of Israel, before it became a state.
