phoned the police?
Hi¹ hitkashra la'mishtara.
¹ i = ee, as in beet.
How about "she contacted the police"?
היא יצרה קשר עם המשטרה
I notice that in the pronounciation the ל is connected to the end of the preceeding verb: Hitkasharala mishtara. She-called-to-the... police
"Help me! Help me! Someone with a clipboard came to my door trying to sell something!"
Shouldn't it be היא התקשרה אל המשטרה
pretty sure אל was consistently used in the hitpael section.
