How do you pronounce Haifa in english? (Like Hebrew: chEifa or like spanish chAifa)
We pronounce both, but chEifa is the correct one
Is ספינה ok to use for both ship and boat? I thought boat was סירה.
Official ministry of transportation designations:
סירה - עד 7 מטר
ספינה - 8-24 מטר
אניה - 24 מטר ומעלה
Colloquially sfina can cover ships, but you won't use if for really small boats like kayaks or optimists
All boat owners are optimists, not just small boat owners ;-)
You are correct, as far as my nautical knowledge goes.
הַסְּפִינָה הִגִּיעָה לִנְמַל חֵיפָה
