What does the dot in the beis mean? How about the dot in any other letter? Reply

Rabbi Raskin Bklyn hts September 7, 2020
in response to Chana:

Dear Chana,

A dot or a “Dagash” means additional emphasis or energy is required. Thus, according to the laws of Dikduk (in most cases) the first letter of a word—if it is one of the seven letters בג״ד כפר״ת—has a dot.
As the tzemach Tzedek explains, since “all beginnings are difficult,” It requires a dot, additional motivation. Reply

Letter Gimmel Rabb I enjoyed very much your class every week and I wait for it.
I go to different and very good classes of Torah during the week, but yours are short, there are so many things that you explain and in such a clear way, that I just want to say: Kol a Kabod Leja. Reply

Letter Gimmel Shalom Rabbi Raskin:

Another beautiful teaching. I never realized that there was so much meaning in the letters of the alphabet. It has been a rewarding learning.

Again thank you, and may you have a blessed life. Reply
