“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.
