Greetings & Expressions

Greetings

Hebrew:
 
Shabbat Shalom (shah-BAHT shah-LOHM)
"Sabbath peace". Appropriate any time on shabbat, commonly used at the end of a shabbat service.
 
Shavua Tov (shah-VOO-ah TOHV)
"Good week". Greeting used after Havdalah (the ceremony marking the conclusion of shabbat), to wish someone a good upcoming week.
 
Chag Sameach (KHAHG sah-MEHY-ahkh)
"Joyous festival". An appropriate greeting for just about any holiday, but it's especially appropriate for Sukkot, Shavu'ot and Pesach (Passover), which are technically the only festivals (the other holidays are holidays, not festivals).
 
L'Shanah Tovah (li-SHAH-nuh TOH-vuh; li-shah-NAH toh-VAH)
"For a good year". A common greeting during Rosh Hashanah and Days of Awe. It is an abbreviation of L'shanah tovah tikatev v'taihatem (May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year).
Yiddish:
 
Gut Shabbes (GUT SHAH-biss; "gut" is pronounced like "put")
"Good Sabbath". Like shabbat shalom, this is a general, all-purpose shabbat greeting. 
Gut Yontiff (GUT YAHN-tiff; "gut" is pronounced like "put")
"Good holiday". This greeting can be used for any holiday.

Expressions

Hebrew:
 
Shalom (shah-LOHM)
"Peace". Like saying "hello" or "goodbye."
 
Mazel Tov (MAH-zl TAWV)
"Good luck". This is the traditional way of expressing congratulations. "Mazel tov!" is the traditional response upon hearing that a person has gotten engaged or married, has had a child, or has become a bar mitzvah. It can be used to congratulate someone for getting a new job, graduating from college, or any other happy event. Not used in the way that the expression "good luck" is used in English; it should not be used to wish someone luck in the future. Rather, it is an expression of joy at the good luck someone has already had.
 
Yasher koach (YAH-shehyr KOH-ahkh)
"Straight strength". Figuratively, may you have strength, or may your strength be increased. A way of congratulating someone for performing a mitzvah or other good deed. In essence, you are wishing this person the strength to continue doing this good thing, and you are also recognizing the effort that the person put into doing this good thing.
 
L'Chayim (li-KHAY-eem)
"To life". The toast you offer before drinking wine, similar to "Cheers!" in English.
