גדליה, אין לך איזה וורט? משהו שירומם את הרוח קצת?


תודה!

    It's "vort", and it comes from Yiddish, where it literally meant "word" (and is related to this English word). But it has a more specific meaning in Yiddish, which is the one borrowed into Hebrew. It means "a short speech/talk/tidbit about the Torah".
