INTRODUCING THE LETTER TET

  1. TET is the ninth letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.
  2. The numerical value of TET is 9
  3. In modern Hebrew, the frequency usage of the letter TET is 2.36%.
  4. The sound of the Hebrew letter TET is like the ‘t’ in toy.

Names that Begin with the Letter TET for Boys and Girls

In generations past, most Hebrew speakers in Israel and Jews ins the diaspora chose Biblical names for their children. 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.

In modern Hebrew in modern Israel, among the unisex names beginning with the letter TET, previously assigned to a specific gender, you will find TAL (dew) and TENEH (basket).

Words of Values that Begin with the Letter TET

MazorBooks children’s books promote Good Values. In that spirit, below is a list of Good Value words that begin with the letter TET. The word TOV, means good, and can be found in many Hebrew greetings, including
-Boker Tov / good morning
-Erev Tov / good evening
-Laila Tov / good night
-Shavua Tov / good week, usually a greeting used after sundown on Saturday night.
– Chodes Tov / good month, a greeting commonly heard on the first day of the month.
– Shannah Tova / good year, a greeting commonly heard around Rosh Hashanah time.

A Place in Israel that Begins with the Letter TET

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 TET

The choice this time is TVERYA (Tiberius), located in nothern Israel on the western banks of the Sea of Galilee, the Kineret. The Kineret as for a many years Israel’s significant source of fresh water, however, nowadays, much of the countries water needs are sustained by the desalination plants in the port city of Haifa.
