Literally: scratched.
Pronounced: sa'rute (male), s'ruta (female), s'rita(a scratch)
Meaning: Is Hebrew slang for a soul/conscience/mind that has been permanently scraped like an old LP record that has been irreparably scratched. The term is used to indicate that the individual with this condition will have certain idiosyncrasies endearing or otherwise. In the strange world of Israeli culture, that can actually be considered cool in a certain situations.
