Question: Vowels are used in Hebrew: nekudot—dots above the letters that indicate the correct pronunciation of the vowels. There is an account that they were developed by a family from Tiberias after the destruction of the Temple in order to preserve the sound of the Torah. But we study that the vowel vocalizations are the lights that are above the letter, i.e., above the Kli (vessel) or under the Kli.
Were the nekudot invented by the Tiberias family to record the Torah? After all, the Torah itself was written without nekudot.
Answer: It does not matter. In the Torah, there are really not very many signs necessary for its reading. After all, when you read the Torah, you must reproduce it with all your external and internal instruments.
That is, I must know how I sing the text, how I give intonation to each sentence, where I can pause, and where it is forbidden. After all, a person cannot read the text in one breath.
Moreover, the reading of the Torah is different from usual reading when you take air into the lungs, read something out loud, and release the air. When reading the Torah, I must properly manage my lungs like an organ in a cathedral. I press on certain parts of my lungs, which consist of five parts. After that, I turn on the five parts of the reproduction apparatus: the larynx, throat, mouth, lips, and teeth.
Therefore, Hebrew letters are a shortened form of the huge, powerful data that a person received in order to read.
