No number


Explanation:
The letter W does not exist in Hebrew. Does who insist on writing in Hebrew letters the word "WASHINGTON", for example - will have to use the hebrew letter VAV twice. The letter VAV gives the "v" sound and its number is 6 - but! putting this letter twice does not mean that the number for W is 12!
Therefor - there is no number for W - because there is no letter like that in Hebrew, and those who tell you otherwise - are wrong!
