Magen David













Even if you are not Jewish, I think that you will find this amazing about the Jewish Star, which is alo referred to as a Magen David.

All twenty-four letters of the Hebrew Alphabet are found in a Magen David. There is no such thing in any other language.

I'm not surprised. The Hebrew language is a totally unique language.

Yes, I think it is most interesting, too.

They say that the English language is the most difficult of all to learn, but I think Hebrew would be, too.

A very kind reader has pointed out a correction that should be made concerning the Hebrew Alphabet.

He said there are only 22 letters, and what is called the 5 Final letters which are part of the 22, but used at the end of a word, and also contain numerical value all their own.

The additional information makes it even more fascinating!

Actually, that's correct. There are 22 base letters, and 5 final forms. What's interesting about this is that it includes the twenty-two base letters and only two of the final forms, the final mem and the final nun. The final fay, final tzadee, and final chaf are not including. I wonder why?
