The Jewish Month of Tevet According to Sefer Yetzirah (1350 words)
The month of Tevet begins the "period" (tekufah) of the winter (whose three months--Tevet, Shevat, Adar--correspond to the three tribes of the camp of Dan--Dan, Asher, Naftali--who were situated on the north side of the camp).
The epitome of this process (in the order of the year, as in the words of the prophet quoted above) is on the tenth of Tevet (in the secret of "the end [final fast-day of the year] is wedged in the beginning [of the events which led to the destruction]").
The letter ayin means "eye." The month of Tevet is the month of the rectification and nullification of the "evil eye." The word Tevet itself comes from tov, "good," referring to tov ayin, "the goodly eye" (the source of the power of blessing, as it is said: "the goodly eye shall bless").
