It's all your fault: I've been lying awake trying to figure out what part of speech עֲלוֹת is. The ־ות makes it look like it's a plural construct, but that makes no sense. Why should it be plural? And I don't know of any word עַלָה (or irregular עַלֶה) that would fit the bill.

Eventually, I got up (almost three hours after I went to bed) and consulted my dictionaries. Still no joy. Eventually I feed it into milon.co.il, and suddenly it's obvious: it's one of those infinitives sans ל־, that Hebrew does.

I wonder if I'll be able to sleep yet...

I'm surprised it even said "alot" on the Chabad website, and not "alos". The word is related to words like עוֹלֶה, עֲלִיָה (and the first half of "Aladdin").

This is the most brilliant thing I've seen in ages. What a lovely multi-lingual and visual pun!
