Welcome! Today's Hebrew letter is "Ayin" ע

Welcome! Today's Hebrew letter is "Ayin" ע
"Ayin" is the sixteenth letter in the Hebrew alphabet. It is an "a" sound voiced from the back of the throat, known an a "voiced pharyngal fricative". She has no English language equivalent letter and is one of the more challenging sounds for the beginner to imitate. Best of Luck.

ס "Samekh" was yesterday's Hebrew letter.
ע "Ayin" is today's Hebrew letter.
פ "Pey" is tomorrow's Hebrew letter.
