Is there a difference between "bottle of wine" and "wine bottle" in Hebrew?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YisraelH

Well... You could play around with it, with variations like בקבוק יין, בקבוק של יין, בקבוק היין, and so on.

Technically, if a bottle is empty, it cannot be a bottle of wine anymore :)

Are wine and alcohol allowed in Judaism ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/emily823504

They are required.

Not entirely required; you can use grape juice

Maybe, but how much grape juice would you need until you can't tell the difference between "blessed is Mordechai and cursed is Haman"? :P

That's not actually a mitzvah, even though people would certain like for it to be

eg Deuteronomy 14:23-27 :-)

there is no 'the'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Larry824711

The "the" is the "ה" before "יין".

ll "יין" = "wine".

ll "היין" = "the wine".

ll "בקבוק יין" = "a bottle of wine" or "a wine bottle".

ll "בקבוק היין" = "the bottle of wine" or "the wine bottle".
