(On leap year on the Hebrew Calendar, there is an extra month March to April, add Bilhah: She was the maid of Rachel and also was the sister of Zilpah who was Leah’s maid.

Both women were major in birthing and sustaining the nation of Israel.

HEBRAIC ALPHABET: KAF meaning The palm of the hand. It represents potential or power. The hand is also the receiver. The KAF can also mean “to suppress”. You cover your mouth with your hand to suppress a cough or sneeze. You might also try to suppress words or a cry. But this goes together with potential as we often have to suppress some things to fulfill our potential. Choosing to focus on the positive we may need to suppress the negative thoughts and words that want to interrupt our path to our potential. The letter KAF is also the number 20. When the KAF is turned so the palm is down (Hold your cupped hands in front of you with your palm down) it represents the hand of God surrounding you and over you. In the work Sukkah there are two KAFs. The sukkah is the hut made of branches and greenery that is used during Sukkot the fall holiday at the time of harvest. This hut represents the over arching presence of God to provide and protect. (Note: Some scholars attribute the letter KUF to this month also.)
Naphtali (To struggles, wrestle, Move forward). Also “Sweetness is to me”. He was born from Rachel’s maid Bilhah who struggled in childbirth.
