"I will exalt You, my G-d, the King, and I will bless Your name forever and ever." (Psalm 145:1)

The letter "aleph" is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and is composed of two letter "yud's" connected by the letter "vav". The lower yud touches the earth below, and the upper yud reaches heavenward towards Hashem, our G-d. Each of us can complete our purpose here in this life by joining heaven and earth, staying grounded in this world by obeying the Mitzvot (commandments) and always yearning to be close to The Holy One, Blessed is He.
