So I googled after reading your reply above, & I still can not find where Genesis states that the firmament was refered to as Heaven.
Did you read the scriptures I quoted?
Between the firmament was the 1st Heaven. This heaven everybody has been to.
According to Jewish beliefs, there are 7 Heavens.
For example, the 7th Heaven is where God resides. The 5th Heaven is where the assemblies are held such as the assemblies mentioned in Job 1 and 2. The 4th Heaven is where the rain, sleet, snow, etc. is stored which is a Heaven several people have visited if they ever flew on an airplane during a storm, etc.
