Encyclopedia From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Building Blocks of Life (Traditional Chinese: 建築有情天) is a TVB modern drama series broadcast in December 2007. The shown is currently rerun on Friday December 19, 2008 to January 22, 2009 from Monday to Friday at 12:15am on TVB Jade in Hong Kong.

The plot revolves around an architecture theme.


Isaac (Alex Fong), a rising architect in a construction company, is about to engage with his lover Winnie (Christine Ng). Right before they marry Isaac unknowingly falls in love with a fellow architect employee named Freeda (Tavia Yeung); spending time with her loads despite remaining loyal to Winnie. Consequently, Winnie becomes angry at Freeda for interrupting their marriage and relationship. She becomes paranoid; suspecting Isaac of all types of cheating and wrong-doings. Soon Isaac's architectural job would be disturbed by all the unnecessary trauma and chaos caused by her anxiety-stricken future wife. Another rising architect named Brian (Power Chan) would try to move up in the company. Isaac, however, remains one of the topmen and the company-favorite.

As a new tactic, Brian resorts to bribing SY (Chung King Fai), the CEO of the construction company. SY's daughter, On-Kiu (Natalie Tong) is a beautiful but extremely naive girl. Her father had initially set high expectations for her to graduate in dozen possible major universities in the United Kingdom; though On-Kiu was never good enough as a student. She faked her college diploma, and kept it as a secret. Brian would later discover this secret and blackmail SY to gain prominence, threatening to publicize the damaging diploma info and ruin SY's business and credibility. SY is one of the most well-respected member in the construction business; his company having a long-established solid reputation.

Meanwhile, Winnie continues to mistrust Isaac and is convinced he is really in some relationship with Freeda. One day, Isaac and Freeda gets drunk together while away on a Mainland-China construction assignment. Isaac; intoxicated; ends up having an affair with Freeda. Winnie is finally able to prove Isaac's disloyalty to be not imaginary. She becomes even more heated and harasses Freeda daily. Eventually Winnie would unintentionally hit Freeda while driving and fleeing the scene after hesitations, causing Freeda to sustain a short coma and be hospitalised. After waking up, she decides to leave Hong Kong due to the love-triangle fiasco. Isaac decides to discontinue his marriage plans with Winnie.

The story continues with Brian now in full control of the company with his bribes and blackmails. He makes it all very public, and forces SY to fire Isaac, the top architect. Brian now oversees all corporate decisions, including payroll, bonuses, and all human resource issues. He also tricks On-Kiu, the CEO's daughter, into marriage. SY becomes highly displeased, but there is little he can do, as On-Kiu is actually content to be in a relationship with Brian. On-Kiu would later bear a child for Brian.

By this time the company is already in an alarming financial crisis, with Brian forcing too many poor unwitting decisions which undermines the company's integrity. In a major new construction deal, Brian is supposed to win a 10-year contract and be financially saved, supposedly with no competition and hassle. Isaac, who was previously fired, now returns with his own start-up company to compete for this 10-year contract. As retributon, Brian physically strikes Isaac's hand with a wooden bat so he can no longer draw. Freeda, the former architect who had an affair with Isaac before, coincidentally returns to Hong Kong. She would help him complete the construction plans and drawings.

While Isaac has a solid design proposal, his chance remains slim. He has to compete with SY, who has had an excellent reputation in the industry. Though he is still reduced as Brian's blackmail-puppet. One day, On-Kiu discovers that her father has been protecting the company and family reputation by putting-up with endless manipulation and financial abuses due to her fake diploma. She gives in, and SY finally becomes free to rid the manipulation. In a surprising move, SY assists the opposing company owned by Isaac instead of backing Brian up, causing his own company to lose the 10-year contract. Brian becomes furious of his puppet-CEO's sell-out. Before Brian publicized the fake diploma info to the media, SY has already figured out ways to tie all the blackmailing to Brian as the main person responsible. Brian eventually loses control of everything, including his health; having developed intestinal cancer with a 50-50 chance survival rate. He later on agreed to take surgery with the support of On-Kiu by his side and they eventually get a newborn in the end.

Under the new start-up company and contract, Isaac would help build a new shoreline on the beaches. Freeda, the former architect who assisted him with the winning design, suddenly discontinue their renewed friendship. It turns out the hit-and-run car accident from earlier had created a brain tumor. She is constantly suffering from memory loss, and things are getting worse. Winnie eventually becomes involved with a new man and moves from her flat. Isaac will see her from a distance in the last episode. As for Freeda, she captures her life on a CD and her camera for Isaac to keep. She leaves Hong Kong for a year (to Paris) and asks Isaac to meet up with her in a year time. In the span of the year, Freeda's condition gets worse and starts to loose her memory. Isaac and Freeda meets on a beach, but she pretends to not remember Isaac. Isaac walks away thinking all is lost, but Freeda shouts out his name. The last episode ends as the two stand at a distance as the sun sets upon them.

Aleph Bet Building Blocks - Israel National News

aleph bet the building blocks of life

The writer is a college student who wants us all to appreciate the Hebrew Language. He intends to come on Aliya next year, so we expect any further articles to be on the Hebrew site.

Brandon Stern

Jewish Tradition teaches us that the letters of the Hebrew alphabet predate creation (1).

They are the building blocks of formation that G-d used to utter the universe into existence. This beautiful language

Rav Kook z"tl is known to have had a fascination with speaking Hebrew before it was popular to do so.

has been the core of our national existence ever since. Despite the events that unfolded at the Tower of Babel, Hebrew survived and went on to become the language of the first monotheists and eventually of the entire Jewish People.

The Children of Israel are unique in the sense that they are a religion based nation and have a three pronged national existence based on land, language and religion. These three components are intertwined. Most nations simply have land and language that unite them, but the Jewish People remain an exception to this rule. It is the Hebrew language that has allowed the Jews to maintain a national existence despite an over 2,000 year exile embittered with anti-Semitism and constant threat of physical annihilation.

The relationship between Modern and Biblical Hebrew continues to be a subject of debate. It is common for scholars to refer to Modern Hebrew as being “reborn.” This is simply not true and can be tremendously misleading. The Hebrew language has been spoken continuously from the creation of Adam until this very day[2][3]. Of course the grammar has varied throughout the years, but this is all part of the evolution of the language.

Hebrew is a living language and that has allowed it to adapt to the demands of modern philology. The words of the Torah are fixed, but the language has continued to flourish both in conversation and in literature during the exile.

Our Sages z"tl used this holy language to write various commentaries and for letter writing between scholars and even put it to use in conversation from time to time. Rav Kook z"tl is known to have had a fascination with speaking Hebrew before it was popular to do so. He recognized the need to use Hebrew as the language of our every thought and deed. The famous Rabbi, philosopher and poet Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi z"tl was an ardent Religious Zionist and in his famed work The Kuzari he preaches the superiority of the Hebrew language[4] and explains why it is a holy tongue that is central to our existence. It is precisely this devotion to our national language that has preserved it during the exile.

Jewish businessman in the Middle Ages known as “Radanites”[5] traveled all around the world in order to conduct commerce and nearly everywhere they went they encountered fellow Jews and were able to communicate with them using Hebrew.[6] Not only were Jewish merchants able to interact with each other, but so were scholars. Rashi z"tl is known to have communicated with the great Jewish minds of Morocco, North Africa and Babylonia.

The fact that a common language exists has helped the Jewish people to live as a nation despite being dispersed throughout the world. It is the language of our sacred Torah and the bond that binds us to the creator and to our fellow coreligionists.

It is incumbent upon the State of Israel and for the Nation of Israel to rebuke those who claim that conversational Hebrew is a modern creation because it is an insult to our sacred tongue. Those who discredit our language threaten the glue that holds our people together and slur our heritage. The Kabbalistic Book of Formation tells us that the Hebrew letters are the building blocks of creation.[7] Indeed, they are, but they are also the basis for Judaism and Jewish Civilization.

During this season, it is time appropriate to note that our Sages say that the Jewish people merited being redeemed from slavery because they maintained their Hebrew names and culture while in bondage. Interestingly enough the establishment of the State of Israel was preceded by an increase in the use of Hebrew as an everyday language. There seems to be a pattern between the Hebrew language and the redemption. It is crucial that we fight for the supremacy of Hebrew within our nation if we are to expect good things to come.

The connection between the Hebrew language and Jewish life was established from the very beginning. This is quite apparent in the Torah and its commentaries. According to the texts our teacher Moses z"tl taught the Torah to the Nation of Israel in seventy languages, yet Hebrew was the language that G-d gave it to us in.

Let us not forgot that.

The ALEPH-TAV, In Genesis 1: 1 there is a Hebrew expression hidden in plain sight but not translated because it was not considered a word

aleph bet the building blocks of life

Part Two: the Aleph-Tav

by haRold Smith

a citizen of the Commonwealth

In the center of this verse of these seven Hebrew words, after B-re'shiyt bara Elohim there is a fourth untranslatable word. That fourth word is actually two Hebrew letters: the aleph and the tav. The aleph-tav ( ) expression serves a grammatical purpose in that it points to the direct object of the sentence, but these two letters do not actually form a word - rather, they express an understanding. This is the basic difference found between Greek based languages, such as English, and the Hebrew language. Whereas Greek and English form a static, rigid architecture; Hebrew is more fluid - promoting understanding rather than a definitive, straight line presentation (see My Big, Fat Greek Mindset PART 1, and PART 2 for a full explanation. click on highlighted words to view content). The aleph-tav character symbol has been hidden in plain sight from the beginning, starting with the original Paleo-Hebrew scrolls written by the hand of Moses and the Prophets, then copied by scribes for thousands of years thereafter into modern Hebrew - but not translated by the Greek Septuagint, the Latin Vulgate, the King James or subsequent English bible translations because it was not considered a word. However, as we shall see, the placement of these two Hebrew letters throughout scripture has far reaching implications.

About - Learn to Read Hebrew with Morah Faiga


I was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1961 to Aubrey (OBM) and Estelle Matthews.

My earliest memories of going to shul include peeking through the railing of the women’s balcony at Garnet Hill Synagogue and trying to find my father and grandfather among the many swaying men wrapped in tallits below.

I emigrated to Regina, Saskatchewan in 1966 with my family, where I attended Talmud Torah at Beth Jacob Synagogue from kindergarten to Bat Mitzvah, then took on leadership roles in B’nai Brith Youth Organization. I moved to Victoria when I was 18 to attend UVic; and, I taught Hebrew School at Temple Emanuel from 1981-1983.

I took a long break from teaching Hebrew because I thought that I didn’t know enough. But after a trip to Spain in 2005 and to Isreal in 2006, my desire to teach was rekindled. (I will share these stories with you soon and link to them from this page.)

Now, I teach children to read Hebrew at the Chabad Family Shul on Sunday mornings.

This site is intended to gently teach people how to read Hebrew so that they can participate fully in the special observances, rituals, blessings and prayers that are an intricate part of Jewish life.

Plunging further into the mysteries of the universe, Rabbi Infinity reveals the secret of deep cosmic breathing as he teaches little Miri the fifth letter of the alefbet.

Something you may have not noticed about those Hebrew letters on the page: They're moving. Actually, they're running--in particular, the gimmel and the daled. Why are they running? Where are they goin.

Bet may be the second letter of the aleph-bet, but it's also the first letter in the creation of the world--so it contains the whole world inside it. Sounds pretty mystical to me, but somehow Rabbi Infinity makes it simple and practical enough for his little granddaughter.

Aleph: The first letter of the alephbet

Now you understand why we had to first learn the yud, then the vav, and only then look at the alef. As we go through the alefbet, you'll see that not only the alef, but every letter, is a composite of the vav and different forms of the yud. The alef, however, tells it all.

Watch the video for the kid in you; read the commentary for the adult in you.

Having mastered the building blocks of the alefbet--the vav and the yud--Miri discovers the secret of letter number one: The Alef. It's the secret of making one out of many.
