What is Cursive Hebrew?

Cursive Hebrew (Hebrew: כתב עברי רהוט‎ ktav ivri rahut, "Flowing Hebrew Writing", or כתב יד עברי ktav yad 'ivri, "Hebrew Handwriting", often called simply כתב ktav, "Writing") is a collective designation for several styles of handwriting the Hebrew alphabet. Modern Hebrew, especially in informal use in Israel, is handwritten with the Ashkenazi cursive script that had developed in Central Europe by the 13th century. This is also a mainstay of handwritten Yiddish. It was preceded by a Sephardi cursive script, known as Solitreo, that is still used for Ladino.
