Zaaka - זְעָקָה

Pronunciation: Za·a·ka

Literal translation: Cry, shout



One of the Hebrew actions that describe the prayers during the nearing Yom Kippur is zaaka. It means you will be crying out to God, asking for forgiveness.

You can also let out a zaaka while watching a horror movie if you're into that genre.
