 Hebrew Alphabet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Archeological evidence indicates that the original Hebrew script is related to the Phoenician script that was in wide use in the Middle East region at the end of the 2nd millennium B.C., and which eventually evolved in Europe into the Greek and Roman alphabets.
Following the decline of Hebrew and Aramaic as the spoken languages of the Jews, the Hebrew alphabet was adopted in order to write down the languages of the Jewish diaspora (Yiddish and Judaeo-Spanish), probably because it was easier to teach Tanakh to the children that way.
The Hebrew alphabet was retained as the official alphabet used for writing down the Hebrew language during its rebirth in the end of the 19th century.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Hebrew Bible
As compared with the Latin Vulgate, the Hebrew Bible includes the entire Old Testament with the exception of the seven deuterocanonical books, Tobias, Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, I and II Machabees, and the deuterocanonical portions of Esther (x, 4 to end) and Daniel (iii, 24-90; xiii; xiv).
By its threefold division, which antedates the prologue to Ecclesiasticus, into the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings, or Hagiographa, the Hebrew Bible differs considerably from the arrangement and order of the Septuagint, which have been adopted by the Vulgate and the Protestant versions.

Hebrew numbers can be written without apostrophes (qof-nun), with > apostrophes (qof-"-nun), and with apostrophes and final letters > (qof-"-finalnun).
% Hebrew numbers can be written in a number of styles: with or without % apostrophes, and with the letters kaf, mem, nun, pe, tsadi as either % final or initial forms when they are the last letters in the % sequence.
Hebrew has no % uppercase letters, hence no need for the familiar meaning of \Alph; % we therefore define \alph to print counters as Hebrew numerals % without apostrophes, and \Alph to print with apostrophes (this % seems semi-intuitive to me; any better suggestions?).

Additional evidence for the commingling of Hebrew and Egyptian scripts was discovered during archaeological excavations at Tell Ein-Qudeirah (biblical Kadesh-Barnea) in the Sinai Peninsula during the latter half of the 1970s.
Because the numerals are in order, Rudolph Cohen, the archaeologist who discovered the texts, concluded that "this writing is a scribal exercise." This view is supported by the discovery, at the same site, of a small ostracon with several Hebrew letters, in alphabetic order, evidently a practice text.
