Consonants

עִצּוּרים

The 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet are all consonants, making it an abjad, a writing system without vowels. However, in reality, the weak consonants (א (alef), ה (he), ו (vav) and י (yud)) often represent long-vowels, and optional diacritical marks are used for short-vowels.
