Playing Chess and Chess Pieces in Hebrew

I am taking my kids to a chess club this afternoon for the first time.

Although we live in Israel and they enjoy playing chess, they have been taught and play in English.

So without further ado, here is some chess vocabulary:

English Transliteration Hebrew
