I was looking through a few of my journals and found this gem. A rabbi told me this in Israel a few years ago.

  • The Hebrew word for man is ish, spelled alpeh- yod– shin
  • The word for woman is ishah, spelled aleph- shin- heh.
  • The letters yod and heh combine to form the Hebrew name of God. 
  • Removing the letters yod and heh from the words isha and ish leave you with aleph-shin, the Hebrew word for fire.

So basically, if you take God out of the equation when it comes to marriage, you’re left with fire. Crazy, huh? Something to think about.
