Hebrew Grammar Note:

** In Hebrew, adjectives come after nouns, unlike English in which you can say “good boy”, in Hebrew you have to say “boy good”.

** In Hebrew, nouns do have genders, an apartment is feminine, a house is masculine etc.

When a Hebrew noun ends in the letter ה (he), it’s a strong sign that the word is probably feminine.
