"Every day I will bless You and I will praise Your Name forever and ever." (Psalm 145:2)

The letter "beit" is the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and begins the first word in the Torah, "Bereshet" or "In the Beginning." Having a solid foundation on the baseline, this letter represents a house or "home." The numerical value of the letter is two, reminding us that the world is comprised of pairs: man and woman, day and night, holy and secular.
