Hebrew, the Holy Tongue, is utterly precise. In Hebrew, “Exile” is called “Golah.” But this very word also hints the path to redemption. By inserting the letter Alef, the word “Golah — Exile” becomes “Geulah — Redemption.”

The Talmud states: What does “Alef” indicate? “Alufo Shel Olam — the Ruler of the world.” Alef is the first letter and number, the start of everything. Likewise, G-d preceded all existence, and He is the source of all time and space.

When one draws the Alef, G-d, into every aspect of life, he lives in a state of redemption, because his mundane life is infused with G-dliness. He thereby liberates himself, and influences those around him to achieve the same. And when many “personal redemptions” are achieved, then, as in Jewish law, “the majority rules” — redemption is brought to the entire world.
