(Heb. תִּגַּון, taggin) is a name given to points or horns with which certain letters in the MSS. used in the Jewish synagogues are decorated, and which distinguish them from the MSS. in ordinary use. The rabbins affirm that God gave them to Moses on Mount Sinai, and that he taught him how to make them. (See TITTLE).
