Amiel, shalom and shavua tov,
Whenever you and all our genders find this kind of "mystery", it can easily be solved here: http://www.kizur.co.il/home.php
This is a site that gives the meaning of RASHEI TEVOT.
The most common meaning of א"י is Eretz Israel (ארץ ישראל), but there are other ones, as you can see here: http://www.kizur.co.il/search_word.php?abbr=%D7%90%D7%99&searchby=abbr&m=1
I hope this helps! All the best,

Good day. In the 1932 census in Tzfat, my great-grandmother's country of birth and nationality is described in Hebrew letters as "Aleph Yud". Could someone shed a light as to what it means? I guess it's an acronym, but I cannot find its meaning.
