Most Hebrew speakers in Israel and Jews in the diaspora chose Biblical names for their children in generations past. Generally, names given to boys and girls were Biblical in origin and gender-specific. Nowadays, past name-choice practices are still prevalent, but many parents do not limit themselves to Biblical nor gender-specific naming.
Nowadays, you will find KE-DEM (ancient) and KEI-DAR (Biblical, one of Ishmael’s sons) among the new unisex names beginning with the letter KUF.

Words of Values that Begin with the Letter KUF
MazorBooks children’s books promote Good Values. In that spirit, below is a list of Good Value words that begin with the letter KDU-SHA.
KDU-SHA means holiness. KA-DOSH is holy (m) and KDO-SHA (f).

A Place in Israel that Begins with the Letter KUF
As Hebrew is the official language of the State of Israel, it stands to reason to include a place in this incredible country that begins with the letter KUF.

KI-BUTZ – a collective community, popular in the State of Israel in the early days. KI-BU-TZIM – plural.

Hebrew for Kids: The Letter TZADI (24)

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

INTRODUCING THE LETTER TZADI:

  1. TZADI is the eighteenth letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.
  2. The numerical value of TZADI is 90
  3. In modern Hebrew, the frequency usage of the letter TZADI is 1.48%
  4. The TZADI sounds like the “tz” in preTZel
  5. TZADI is one of five Hebrew letters differently written when appearing at the end of a word. The others are CHAF, MEM, NUN, and TZADI
  6. Some call this letter TZADIK (which means ‘a righteous person’). The letter that follows TZADI in the Hebrew alphabet is the letter KUF (sounds like ‘k’ in kite), and so, when the Alef-Bet is recited, the ‘k’ sound of the KUF attaches itself to the TZADI. The proper pronunciation, according to most, is TZADI, though some dictionaries suggest both pronunciations are acceptable.
