Hebrew Letter Charts

Hebrew Letters / Final Consonants & Vowels

The following letter chart is very useful to quickly see the letters, their shapes, their names, and the numerical values (Gematria). Each letter represents a number. For example, Chapter 42:11 would is frequently written in Hebrew as MEM-BEIT (for 42) then YOD-ALEF for (11). The MEM has a value of 40, and BEIT has value of 2 – adding up to the number forty two. Then the YOD has a value of 10 and the ALEF a value of 1, adding up to the eleven.

The cursive letters are used when people write letters or take notes in a class. Rashi Script is used to print the text of Rashi’s commentary, and sometimes other commentaries. The column I have labeled “HAND” is an example of writing the block letter by Hand. Non Israeli beginner students sometimes have to write letters like this until they have time to learn cursive letters.
