Shalom aleichem (; Hebrew: שָׁלוֹם עֲלֵיכֶם shālôm ʻalêḵem) is a spoken greeting in Hebrew, meaning "peace be upon you." The appropriate response is aleichem shalom ("unto you peace") (Hebrew: עֲלֵיכֶם שָׁלוֹם). This form of greeting is traditional among Jews throughout the world. It occurs six times in the Jerusalem Talmud. The greeting is more common amongst Ashkenazi Jews. Only the plural form "עֲלֵיכֶם" is used even when addressing one person. A religious explanation for this is that one greets both the body and the soul, but Hebrew does occasionally use the plural as a sign of respect.
