‘The three yud-shaped tips of the letter shin all reach heavenward, asking for G-d’s divine blessings. “Shalom” starting with the letter shin, means “peace” in this world. “Shabbat,” the Sabbath day, is a day of rest and holiness at the end of the secular week, is a gift from G-d to the Jewish people for accepting His Torah. Shin also begins the word “shofar” which is the ram’s horn that is sounded at Rosh Hashanah, and at the end of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
It is very easy for me to forget the inherent mysticism found within Judaism, Christianity and Islam. This ‘Shin’ makes such forgetfulness much harder.
