The opening letter Bet ב


[Note: The letter Bet (ב) is the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet.]

"R' Yehudah ben Pazi taught: Why does the Torah begin the account of Creation with the letter Bet (ב)? Because Gd created two worlds - this world, and the next."

(Midrash, Bereishit Rabbah 1:10)

Have a great day,
