how to read numerals

Postby caleteu » 2017-12-12, 18:57

When letters of the alphabet are used as numerals, do you pronounce them as letters or numbers? Is א, for example, "aleph " or "echad"?
thanks!

I believe you read them as letters. For instance, י׳׳ב would be yod bet. But it's better if a native speaker (or an advanced learner) can confirm it.
