The sound begins with a 'd' and then goes to the 'j'.
Try to say loudly "Jack". It is actually sounds like: Djack. Same for George, journal, John etc. All begin with 'D'. Examples in Hebrew: ג'ק, ג'קי, ג'ון, ג'וק, ג'ינס, ג'לטין, דודג', ג'ונסון.
ז' => The sound begins immediately with 'j'. It's like in French pronouncing of: Jacque, Juin. Examples in Hebrew: ז'ילבר, ז'ק, ז'קלין, ז'ורנל.
