Hebrew Weekdays

Except for the Sabbath day, the individual days of the week have no names, just numbers.  The middle column in the table below gives the actual transliterated pronunciation of the names. Yom is pronounced "Yome".  The "Kh" is a guttural sound often spelled as "Ch".  There is no "Ch" sound in Hebrew as there is in English.  Modern Hebrew, however, can create a "Ch" sound by putting an accent mark ( ´ ) in front of the Hebrew letter "Khet" (or "Chet").  This is used only in rare cases in order to properly pronounce such words or names as Church or Churchill (referring to the person Winston Churchill.)
