Sabra (Hebrew: צבר‎, pronounced tsabar; ṣabra) is a Jew born in Israel; this usually includes Jews born during the period of the establishment of the state of Israel.[1] The word "sabra" is Arabic and Hebrew. Immigrants to the British Mandate for Palestine began using it in the early 1930s, according to the The Dictionary of Slang (Hebrew) written by Israeli Rubik Rozental. The allusion is to a tenacious, thorny desert plant with a thick hide that conceals a sweet, softer interior, suggesting that even though the Israeli Sabra are rough and masculine on the outside, they are delicate and sensitive on the inside.
