Hebrew numbers

Normally in Israel, the usual, so-called Arabic numerals are used.
We write in Hebrew from right to left, but we insert numbers from left to right.
Let's say the current year in Hebrew will look exactly the same as in Russian.
For example: when in 2022 will be Passover?
2022פסח בשנת?

Nevertheless, in Israel, the old designation of numbers with letters has been preserved, as in ancient Greek and Old Church Slavonic.
We also kept it. Let's say lists are numbered - 1st item, 2nd item ... and item A, item B ...
In the numbering of houses, buildings can be 1st building, 2nd building, or building A, building B.
