The Hebrew letter are considered the tools of creation according to the sages of the Talmud and the mystics. In Talmud Brachot 55a, the sages discuss the wisdom of Betzalel, the main architect of the Israelite santuary. Rav Yehuda said in the name of Rav, Bezalel knew how to construct the tabernacle because he knew how to join the letters with which heaven and earth were created, for the Torah states about Bezalel: “And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship” (Exodus 31:3); and in regard to creation of heaven and earth, it states in Proverbs 3:19,  “The Lord, by wisdom, founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens”, and Proverbs 3:20 “By His knowledge the depths were broken up and the skies drop down the dew”. We see that wisdom, understanding, and knowledge, ie, the Hebrew letters, are the qualities with which the heavens and earth were created, are all found in Bezalel.
