Meaning & History

Modern Hebrew name meaning both "willow tree" and "desert" or "savanna, prairie". Traditionally the ערבה (aravah), a leafy willow branch, is used in a waving ceremony during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. In Israel the name also refers to a geographical plain near the Jordan, appearing in Deuteronomy 3, 17 as Arabah. (Interestingly, the Hebrew word arabha "desert" may ultimately relate to English Arab.)
