Hebrew and Some Yiddush Words Glossary

The Hebrew language uses a different alphabet than English. Hebrew is written from right to left, rather than left to right as in English. Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and Tav is the last. The Hebrew alphabet is often called the "alefbet," because of its first two letters.
    The process of writing Hebrew words into English is known as transliteration. Transliteration is more an art than a science, and opinions on the correct way to transliterate words vary widely. Because of this there are more than one correct way to spell words. For example: In Hebrew, Chet-Nun-Kaf-He is spelled Chanukah, Chanukkah, Hanuka, and many other interesting ways. Each spelling has a legitimate phonetic and orthographic basis; none is right or wrong.
