Hebrew Update: Gayle Kaplan

1. LETTER OF THE WEEK:  Shalom.  שָׁלוֹם  Pajama Day was great!   Many students and teachers wore   פּ 

This week’s letter looks slightly different and has a different sound:  פ   sounds like the “f” in fall.  The difference in how the two letters look is the dot in the middle.  פ doesn’t have the dot. One way to help know which is which is to remember that   פ rarely shows up at the beginning of the word.  You can see that all our example words show פ  in the middle of the word. 

There’s one more version of the letter. As with a few other Hebrew letters, פ  has a different form when it comes at the end of the word:  ף   It’s the same “f” sound; it just looks a little different.  The top half is the same as פ but instead of curving around to the left, the shape of the letter goes straight down in a line. 

I look  פoward to having a פun time at the Purim carnival this coming Sunday.  See you there!
