The eleventh letter in Hebrew is Kaf. KAF literally means 'the palm of the hand', implying productivity and potentiality. The words that describe kaf are crowning, accomplishment, receiving, selflessness and hard work. The Hebrew number eleven is Yod (10, power to act) and Aleph (1, heaven). Eleven embraces all the attributes of both these numbers.
Eleven is found in the scriptures. The last two Kings of Judah each reigned eleven years before the Babylonian conquest of Judah: Jehiakim and Zedekiah. Joseph was the eleventh son of Jacob, he dreamed of eleven stars bowing down to him (Gen 37:9)
Some say (look it up on google or most symbolism books) that eleven means disorder, disorganization, lack of fulfillment, imperfection. I believe that all numbers were created of God and that he doesn't create junk! But, like the constellations, I know there is an opposite to all things too. So, if all numbers are positive then there must be a negative side too and vise versa. What side will you focus on or feed?
