The Hebrew word tse·da·KAH (“righteousness,” “salvation”) will teach us how to pronounce and write the letters צָדִי (tsa·DI) and קוֹף (kof).

In this lesson we will learn two new letters, צ and ק, by learning about the Hebrew term tse·da·KAH (“righteousness,” “salvation”).

Hebrew NuggetsThe important Hebrew word צְדָקָה (tse·da·KAH, “righteousness,” “salvation”) will teach us how to pronounce and write the letters צָדִי (tsa·DI) and קוֹף (kof).

צ (tsa·DI) represents the Hebrew “ts” sound. tsa·DI is the 18th letter in the Hebrew alphabet. In our system of transliteration we represent the tsa·DI with “ts.” This sound occurs in English in words that have “ts” or “tz,” for example, in “its,” “quartz,” “pants,” “tsetse (fly).” The tsa·DI is one of five Hebrew letters that have a final form. These include final mem (ם), which we learned in Lesson 15, final kaf (ך), which we learned in Lesson 27, and final nun (ן), which we learned in Lesson 30. The final form of the צ (tsa·DI) is ץ. Now we can read words that end in tsa·DI such as אֶרֶץ (’E·rets, “land,” “country”).
