Hebrew term or phrase: Yod Resh or Yod Vav
I converted to Judaism when I was eighteen (I'm 21) and I have been having dreams about being in a temple with my current boyfriend (who was born Jewish) and this word combination was upon the arch of the temple. I have only begun to get a handle on my Hebrew and I cannot find any meaning in this combination. Can anyone enlighten me?

Could be יה

These pairs don't evoke any meaning as far as I'm aware, but note that the two letters "Yod He" are one of the ways to write God.
Perhaps that's what you think you saw?
