The Hebrew letter Beth shows a three-sided enclosure open on the north side, the direction the sun moves toward summer solstice in the northern hemisphere. Hence, this area is exposed in the direction of longer days, greater light, the path to illumination (as opposed to the south, the way of obscurity). A center point occupies this house of enlightenment. Who is this? Who is at home in the house of light? The story of Creation begins with this letter. “Bereishit (In the beginning) God created the heavens and the earth." In the house that God built, who dwells? Who is the one that enters and departs through the north door? He is head of the household. We are his guests.
