The fifth letter of the Alphabet. It is written ה and sounds like the letter H in the word ‘have’ but Modern Hebrew speakers often pronounce it like a simple clean vowel. Its numeric value is 5. The letter Heh is also a prefix which functions as the definite article of Hebrew: House – בית | The house – הבית. The letter Heh is also used at the end of words as a closure to the A sound indicating female: boy – יֶלֶד (yeled) | girl – יַלְדָּה (yalda)
