The Meaning of the Hebrew Letters


Was it Rabbi Becher or Riette who give a talk on the meaning of each Hebrew letter? I attended a lecture many years ago and this thought has stuck with me all these years and I’d like to pursue this thought with the Rabbi.

Thank you,

  1. As far as I am aware, it was Rabbi Rietti who gave the lecture. I think that the best thing is for you to contact Rabbi Rietti directly and ask him your questions. However, I do not have an email address for Rabbi Rietti, so I think that you should contact the Gateways main office: and ask them for his contact information.

    In the meantime, there is a book called the Wisdom of The Hebrew Alphabet by Rabbi Munk, published by ArtScroll that you may find helpful.
