The letter א (aleph) is called the father of the alphabet. The original pictograph symbolizes an ox with the meaning of strength and leader. Hebrew letters also have a numeric value and א is used for 1 and also 1,000. Aleph reminds us of the wonder of the oneness of God.

Section א of Psalm 119
Psalms 119:1-8 (NET)
1 How blessed are those whose actions are blameless,
who obey the law of the LORD.
2 How blessed are those who observe his rules,
and seek him with all their heart,
3 who, moreover, do no wrong,
but follow in his footsteps.
4 You demand that your precepts
be carefully kept.
5 If only I were predisposed
to keep your statutes!
6 Then I would not be ashamed,
if I were focused on all your commands.
7 I will give you sincere thanks,
when I learn your just regulations.
8 I will keep your statutes.
Do not completely abandon me!
