Ordinal Numbers – Days of the Week
Hebrew uses ordinal numbers for the days of the week, following the pattern of Creation.
Day 1 – Yom Rishon; Day 2 – Yom Sheni; Day 3 – Yom Shlishi, etc.
Yom is a masculine noun, so the masculine form of the ordinals is used. The feminine form adds either the letter hey, giving the ending an ah sound, as in rishonah, shniyah, or a tav, as in shlishit, revi’it, chamishit.
