# Gimel

third letter in the Hebrew alphabet

Gimel is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

The Phoenician letter gave rise to the Greek gamma (Γ), the Latin C, G and F, and the Cyrillic Г.

In set theory (particularly in the theory of infinite cardinal numbers), the ${\displaystyle \gimel }$ symbol is used to represent the gimel function.[1] The Hebrew gimel corresponds to the letter G in English.[2]
