Hebrew Numbers

Hebrew numbers are important to know if you're going to learn how to speak Hebrew, want to shop in Jerusalem or ask the time of day.

There's nothing to do but to memorize them, especially if you want to go to the shuk, where rapid fire bargaining on prices is part of the fun. On the other hand, once you know them, you can also have lots of fun with Hebrew numerology, because all these numbers have a corresponding letter, which results in the very cool Kabbalistic art of gematria.
