“In the beginning Hashem created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Aleph, the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet, is linked to Creation and the two basic elements: “Adamah” (earth) and “Aish” (fire). Aleph corresponds to the number one. Likewise, Adam, the first human being, was created as a sole creature.
