Product DescriptionHebrew letters dance merrily around a velvet-clothed Torah scroll. There are 22 letters in the Aleph Bais. This is first thing three year old boys learn after their upsherin. The beloved holy Torah is the center of Judaism. Hebrew (and Yiddish) uses a different alphabet than English. Note that Hebrew is written from right to left, rather than left to right as in English, so Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and Tav is the last. The Hebrew alphabet is often called the "alef-bet," because of its first two letters. Note that there are two versions of some letters. Kaf, Mem, Nun, Peh and Tzadeh all are written differently when they appear at the end of a word than when they appear in the beginning or middle of the word. The version used at the end of a word is referred to as Final Kaf, Final Mem, etc.
