The third part of a three-part series on the word Menorah.
In this lesson we introduce the final letter of the Hebrew word מְנוֹרָה. This new letter, together with the letters and vowel symbols we have learned over the past thirteen lessons, give us the ability to read a large number of Hebrew words. The second half of this lesson, therefore, offers reading practice in which we make use of the consonants and vowels we have learned.
The third letter in the word מְנוֹרָה (me·no·RAH), the first letter of its third syllable, is ר (resh). The Hebrew alphabet has twenty-two letters, and resh is the twentieth. In our system of transliteration the resh is represented by “r.”
