TO LEARN – TO TEACH
Our Sages refer to this letter as “a tower soaring in air”, the “flying tower”. In our study of Torah, the “flying tower” is the expression of our love and devotion to the teachings of the Torah, our aspiration to conceive the inner truth, lifting us above the “gravity barrier” of earthly preoccupation.
Learning secular skills; empirical knowledge.
Learning in order to teach and learning in order to do.
Form: the only letter ascending the line. It is a “vav” whose head, “yud” looks downwards, on a “kaf”.
Numerical value: 30.
Number thirty represents: thirty days of the month; thirty generations from Abraham to the destruction of the First Temple.
