Drill & Dent
Just like a drill, the letter Daled has a top and a handle with a slight dent on the handle making it easy to hold. This contrasts to the letter Reish which is similar, but has no dent and is not rounded.

A story about
Daled is very handy and skilled at using its drill. Because Daled recognises that this talent is a blessing from Hashem, Daled always tries to look for Mitzvot it can do with its drill. The most exciting Mitzvah Daled uses its drill for is to build a Shul that Daled can daven (pray) in! After building the shul, Daled is eager to go back with its drill to put up all the Mezuzot. There are so many Mitzvot that Daled can do with its drill, including building a Sukkah and making a wooden dreidle. Each week Daled makes sure to fully charge its drill by placing the back dent of the drill in the charger in case it needs it again soon!
