Tel Aviv + Addis Ababa: twin cities


The capital of Ethiopia is Addis Ababa. In Amharic this means “new flower.” Addis, new, is akin to חדש [K]HaDaSH, new. No big deal, Amharic is Semitic. Ancient Egyptian is also Semitic ,even though it, too, is in Africa. Now, the ababa part has nothing to do with פרח PeRaK[H], flower. Dictionary definitions seldom help when connecting all words to their ultimate origin in Pre-Hebrew or Edenic.

Ababa means flower because אביב ABHiBH means springtime. For the same bloomin’ reason, the month of blossoming is named April – with its PR/FR root seen in words like FRUCTIFY and פרח PeRaK[H].

תל-אביב Tel AVIV means “hill of spring.” Springtime is a VIVID time of VIVIFICATION and new life. Many Jewish Ethiopians have found a new life in Israel. So there’s more than EMeTological coincidence to Addis Ababa and Tel Aviv being twin cities.

More coincidental is twinning Capetown to Haifa (which means cape), or Ann Arbor to Pardes Chana (which means Ann’s trees).
