The Number Seven (Hebrew)

The seventh letter of the Hebrew alphabet is "Zayin".  It has a numeric value of "7", and also represents a "sword" that is used to "cut up" time.

- Shabbat - the 7th day of the 7-day week
- Shavu'ot - the 49th day after Passover
- Tishri - the 7th month of the year
- Shemitah - the 7th year of rest for the land


"The number seven has always been regarded in the Jewish tradition as the number of completion, wholeness, blessing, and rest."
