……………………………It Has Begun…

Do you feel like the world and life is a dichotomy, that it is split or splitting in two? Do you feel that inside you as well? Do you feel like it is a constant battle between good and evil, good intentions and evil inclinations? Do you feel like this has been going on forever? Do you feel the pull between the spiritual and the physical? Do you feel pulled in both directions? Spiritual forces versus technological ones.  Do you see how the more technologically dependent we become the less spiritually we behave?  Do you feel a major battle brewing?

Do you feel like past lives may be influencing you today, that there are influences from beyond tugging at you, trying to compete with the demands of our world and the demands of our technological dependence? Do you feel manipulated? You have been told by master manipulators not to feel like a victim, but deep inside someone is still telling you that you have been.

Would you like to understand why you have all these feelings? Would you like to be vindicated that your intuitions were not wrong? The Torah told us right off there was good and evil, technology and spirituality, death and immortality, day and night, light and dark, and Heaven and Earth, all juxtaposed, all dichotomous, no gray scale. Would you like to know how it really works?

I apologize for the long delay in revealing the promised true holy trinity and for the lengthy gap in my writings (publishings). Like so many I have been locked in a wrestling match with the dark forces and it has been eating up so much of my time. I graciously accept all your prayers in this fight as I endeavor, B”H, to reveal many more of the deepest secrets and the revelations of light necessary for these troubled times.

Many of you have heard the arguments by several distinguished Rabbis that the Hebrew year 5779 may actually be 5778 and they are valid. Nevertheless, we have continually made the point since our earliest works (Nothing is Random in the Universe) that the two dates distinguished by G-d in the first 1000 digits of Pi (3.1415….5778201942019….577818577842019) and elsewhere correspond to the years 5778 in the Hebrew Calendar and 2019 CE in the English. Whether these two are consecutive or simultaneous there is no way to know yet, but we assumed they were consecutive, and that G-d has a purpose for highlighting both of them.

I want to tell you now that the prophesied events for 5778 did take place and the process did begin then, even if the cloaked world of illusion did not allow most of us to see it.  Yes, H’Moshiach, the chosen (anointed One) did arrive on G-d’s schedule, just as it was indelibly encoded in the Torah, recorded in the immutable mathematical constants, and written into our divinely given prayers.

To those who understand it is obvious in the gematria, obvious in the unveiling prophesies coming to life before our eyes, and obvious in the signs all around us every day.

The Zohar’s description of H’Moshiach leaves no doubt, though it foresaw that we surely would doubt it. In numerous places the Zohar describes the events unfolding today in great detail.  Both the Zohar and the prophets told us of the signs that we can see today for ourselves. Just look up and around the world every day.  If it is not obvious by the time I finish this series of articles, which will explain the mechanisms of time, the G-d given (beyond any doubt) source code of the Torah, and the G-d given portals (the true holy trinity) to freedom with their combination keys, I will spell it out in plain English. Thanks be to G-d, blessed be He, for allowing me to be any support or play any role in supporting His work and or that of H’Moshiach. Make no mistake, it is a fight that we must all join.  Please bear with me over these next few articles, as there is far too much material to write, or for you to read, in one sitting, and, as you can imagine, some of the aspects are very complex.

The Zohar tells us specifically that we are blessed to have been born in these times to bear witness to the unfolding events towards the final redemption. It also predicts the opposite for those with predominantly evil in their hearts and under the deceptive spells of the illusionists. These days have been about the scales, whether we have allowed ourselves to be drawn to the light and the goodness, or seduced into the darkness of the evil ones, who would seek to upend G-d’s designs and the natural order by placing the physical world above the spiritual.

In all probability, if you are reading this, the scales have already been tipped in your favor, as you have awakened and seek answers beyond the false narratives that you have been handed, and that have been forced upon you.

All along, we have shown that the two calendars, Hebrew and Western The Divine Calendar(Gregorian) were divinely designed to mirror one another (The Divine Calendar), pivot on the year 3760 (0 CE),  and converge on the year 5778 (2018  CE). Last August, I was planning on revealing the mechanism and physics behind that Divine time frame leading up to the holy trinity, which is key to our achieving real freedom.  This mechanism is complex and involves understanding the concept that time is not actually linear but spherical, and that there is a plurality of time(s) with infinite possible pathways. I will get to these lengthy explanations in due time, but for the moment there are two aspects that you need to know. First, within this spherical time there is a single time-path or time-line known as the Linear Line of Death, this is the time-line of limitation that we have been convinced that we live on, cannot escape from, and are destined to die on.  This line is an illusion, one that was ingrained in your consciousness from the moment you were born.  Scientists accept as fact that there are 10 dimensions to our universe and that infinity exists, yet both of these conditions preclude there being any limitations on us, our time frame, or our connections beyond the physicality to the vast spiritual limitless realm of true freedom. The Linear Line of Death is what we call physicality and Kabbalah has always called Malchut.

I am about to reveal—I have been writing about them for 15 years now—the identity of the holy trinity because it is not fair to make you wait any longer, though to see how to use them to their and your fullest capacity to achieve spiritual freedom and free yourself from the Linear Line of Death that the illusionists would have you belief is your fate, we will have to wait until the end of the series. This is only so that you have the fullest understanding possible.

Just to drop a breadcrumb please note that what the Arizal considered the highest spiritual day of the year, Purim, falls exactly 18 months to the day from Rosh Hashannah 5778 in the Western Calendar. Hebrew holidays based on the lunar calendar will always align, but there is no physical reason for the Gregorian calendar dates to align this year. Spiritually, of course, this is the year of convergence. If you utilize some of the main spiritual numbers we have discussed over the years and count back in Western months (a random concept with no Hebrew calendar basis), will you find significant symmetries.  If you question why Purim, you must go back to the original pure nature, origin and halacha of this holiday, not the traditions added over the years and the more recent fake traditions taught to many under the guise of spiritual manipulation.

Be careful! There are many concealed Names of G-d hidden in the Scroll of Ester for our benefit, and the Zohar in parsha Ki Tetze explicitly warns that using them with evil in your heart (even if you have been tricked into thinking you a pure) converts those Names into evil names, reversing your outwardly intended purpose.  Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory warns the same thing in his book, The New Writings and says it is virtually impossible to remove enough of that evil inclination to warrant using those Names, specifically the 72 Names. Their usage was reserved for the tzaddikim, the truly few and righteous throughout history who could handle them properly, which is why until recently no one disseminated them or gave them false meanings. Remember, we live in the world of illusion. Purim is designed to help us break out of those illusions.  Those Names are very real and are meant to be a powerful unbroken matrix, not individual toys for manipulation, idol worship, and self-indulging.

The second concept of time that I want to mention today is that once we hit the event horizon (all to be explained in the coming articles) in 5778/5779, time began folding back on itself like a wave hitting a wall. This explains the ever-increasing Mandela Effects; the fact that history is mysteriously being filled-in in greater and greater heretofore unknown details with many people and events finally becoming unmasked; and that just as the prophecies stated, aspects and predominant beliefs of our past and now are a reality in our present

We are at a critical point, which is why, G-d willing, I will get as many articles out as quickly as I can. This 3-dimensional wave of time has folded back and reached the 1930’s and our universe is quickly filling up with astonishing degrees of unwarranted anti-Semitism and hatred for Jews and Israel once again. Putting your head in the sand, just as was done in the 1930’s will not make it go away. We already know how that ended.  Even the U.S. Congress refuses to condemn anti-Semitism and thus condones it in their own chambers, never mind Polish newspapers printing front page articles on how to determine if someone is a Jew. History can only be our guide if we do not re-write it, as the illusionists are already doing, removing Israel from the maps in public schools and not allowing the name Israel to be mentioned in our universities without condemnation.

Revelation is about splitting things in two; it is how that split occurs that determines their ultimate proportion and what will come of it.  Shortly, we will show how the splitting of the alef-bet (Hebrew alphabet) in just the right way gave way to the Creation of the Torah and much more.  For today, we are going to use the simplest of splitting, in two equal halves to illustrate an indelible connection between the holy trinity and the Divine Calendar.  In a sense this is the end point, but after all the explanations, revelations, and understandings, everything will circle back to this point in space, time, and function.

The three best and safest access portals to the spiritual world of freedom were given to us at the beginning of time and weaved into the Torah in plain sight. They were made easy to find and use and encouraged by sage, prophet, tzaddik, and Rabbi alike. The were used by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Joseph, Aaron, and Moses; David and Solomon; Rabbi Akiva, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the Arizal, and the Baal Shem Tov.  They had proper understanding, which is why I urge patience while we impart and share some of that understanding over these articles, including the keys and combinations locks in their proper time.  As Rav Abulafia once explained, nothing we will reveal, nor can we reveal, is without permission granted.

The answers and entrances are found in the Shema (Sh’ma Ysrael) prayer, actually through its first and most well-known verse.  The second entrance is found in the Torah’s first verse. And the third part of this Holy Trinity is the 42-Letter Name of G-d (The Genesis Prayer) found in all our prayer books and derived from the first 42 Letters of the Torah. In fact, the Arizal stated that no prayer could be heard in Heaven without the use of the 42-Letter Name (pronounced through the Ana B’koach), which is why it is in all our prayer books.  Don’t worry, as Rav Abraham Brandwein of blessed memory explains, this is the one Name of G-d we can pronounce and use, because it is the only one launched from below (our world) to the world above (beyond) through its ultimate connection to the Upper 42-Letter Name, so it cannot be used intentionally or unintentionally for evil purposes. All the connections to all the other Names of G-d are necessarily made directly above.

Remember, if you are new to our blog, the numbers represent specific energy levels or frequencies, and according to Number Theory combinatorics they are specific multi-dimensional geometric portals(points). Numbers are not arbitrary and if you stick to one specific cipher system (standard Hebrew gematria) they are immutable and unmalleable, all of which are the reasons that they can be added, multiplied or divided and that their subsequent results can be meaningful.  Finally, remember you are reading the end of the explanation before you have even heard the explanation.

The hints to this hark back 3800 years to a book, the Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) written by Abraham Avinu (Abraham, the Patriarch), in which what today’s mathematicians now call Number Theory was first detailed.

In chapter 1:1 of the Sefer Yetzirah Abraham writes: “and He created His universe

With three books (Separim)

With text (Sepher)

With number (Sephar)

And with communication (Sippur)”

All three words including the word for books have the same root letters (ספר) and thus deeply connected.

 

While the first word of the Shema (sh’ma שמע) has the same numerical value (410) of the word Holy (Kadosh קדוש), the rest of its first verse has the gematria of the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d (708), thus entire first verse of the Shema is 1118.

The first verse of the Torah has a total gematria of 2701, which is the sum of all the integers from ∑1 – 73.

The total gematria of the 42-Letters of the 42-Letter Name is 3701, or exactly 1000 more than the Torah’s first verse.

Three (3) Books, representing text, communication, and number could very well be the Torah for text, the Shema (Hear) for communication, and the 42-Letter Name for number.

When we add these 3 powerful gateways of prayer together (1118 + 2701 + 3701) we get 7520, and when we split that result in half (1118 + 2701 + 3701)/2 we get 3760, the exact year the two calendars pivot on: 3760 HC (0 CE).

(1118 + 2701 + 3701)/2 = 3760 HC (0 CE)

It is not our purpose today to dive into Torah proofs, though just so that you do not dismiss this equation as coincidence, since you have not yet seen the background and context, when we subtract this same sum from 10,000 (or 10 raised to the power of 4), we get 10,000 – (1118 + 2701 + 3701 = 2480. While 248 is the numerical value of the name Abraham, the Patriarch, which corresponds to the 248 words in the Shema, 2480 itself is the sum of the 5 Names (Bereshit, Shmot, Vayikra, Bamidbar and Devarim) of the 5 Books of Moses, the Torah.

Moreover, while we know that the total sum of the words, verses, and letters in the Torah is exactlyto the power of 8, the total sum of words, verses, letters, rows (42 per column) and columns (248) in the Torah can be divided by the all-important mathematical constant Phi (1.618033889…) to give us exactly 248,000. 

As for further meaning, we need not look further than 3760/73, which is the 3 powerful prayers together divided by the collective power of the Torah’s first verse (1 – 73) equaling 51.50, the kabbalistic equivalent to 515, which the Zohar, the Midrash and the Arizal explain represents the 515 times that Moses prayed (supplicated) to G-d to enter Israel and bring about the final redemption. The number 515 is the numerical value of both Tefilla (Prayer) and Vaetchanan (supplicate).

One final note, as we prepare for Purim 5779. The sum of the numerical values of the 7 words or 28 letters in the Torah’s first verse is equivalent to the sum of the integers from ∑1 – 73 or 2701, and the sum of the numerical values of the first 8 words or first 33 letters in the Torah is equivalent to the sum of the integers from ∑1 – 77 or 3003 and…

2701 + 3003 + (73+77)/2 = 5779

More to follow, including many answers to your many questions, soon.

Chag Purim Sameach,

Ezra

  1. It’s all very nice, but tachles, how is this applicable to healing trauma of the body, soul, mind – individually and collectively? Unless these formulas can be applied directly, what is the use? We need methodologies and we need practical applications so that we may actually use this info for the intention (fill in the blank of what purpose it is to serve us/humanity).

  2. Very good question. Our only purpose, after all the connections, the mitzvot and the tikkun olam, in the end is to wake up. The true kabbalist goal has always been freedom. Any healing that occurs is in the end false because it is happening within the world of illusion. Our goal is to show you how to break through the barriers of the illusory world to the world of the endless. That is the true awakening. Awakening happens in stages because the illusory prison is multi-layered. The kabbalists compare it aptly to an onion. If you want the healing you mentioned there are many places in this world you can easily find it and you don’t need to join a cult whose goal is to bleed you dry-ASK Teal; she has 1000’s of free very practical lectures on line. I’ve mentioned in this blog where the natural healing frequency 432 hz comes from and how it is integrated into the Torah; Teal tells you exactly how to use it and how to heal yourself, raise your energy vibration and begin connecting beyond, etc etc. Dr Berg (the real doctor) has 1000’s of videos to help with weight control and health. Like I said, everything you need to know is at your fingertips now because time is folding back on it self and the rolling waves are filling in all the gaps in our knowledge (in both good and evil). It’s part of the final process, do we double down on the illusions and thus perhaps unwittingly tip our scales to the side of evil. Or do we use this knowledge to wake ourselves up to what is really going on in our world and seek the true reality beyond. The truth of the matter is that everything we do in this world is by nature self-indulgent and thus self-incriminating and no matter what you’ve been taught by manipulative charlatans about past lives you are not correcting anything, only heaping more incrimination upon yourself. It doesn’t have to be this way-G-d gave us escape hatches and we intend to peel back the layers of camouflage and sage brush that were placed there to hide them from you. As for the self-indulgence, there are many degrees of it, in order to carry the lightest load our choices should always be the one based on true sharing (that is sharing without a perceived agenda, without being coerced into it by people or a group manipulating us to. There is no such thing in spiritual development as “fake it to you make it.” True sharing or self-sacrificing comes only from the heart, not the head. There will always be a bit of self-indulgence in it (that is how our physical world works–the mind and body knows/thinks it must eat) but the lighter your load, the closer you can get to enlightenment and thus freedom.

  3. This may sound naïve, but
    which ‘holy trinity’ do you refer to
    Please clarify in detail + contextualize
    Thanks

  4. The doctrine of trinity were declared by Constantino on 325 C.E to include more Christians. See Constantino’s revelation of the cross..

  5. Yes, but that is not the trinity we’re revealing. Also the concept of divine balance using 3 elements is a far more ancient kabbalistic one base on a 3 column structure that mimics physics (or visa versa) .

  6. There is a marvelous story about the perfect heart, sought out by the
    matchmaker sent by Abraham to find the perfect bride for his son Isaac.
    The matchmaker asked G-d to intervene with his endeavor and so the
    matchmaker was led to a young innocent girl named Rebekah. Now the
    matchmaker proceeded to describe to this starry eyed young girl about
    all the majesty and excellence of Abraham and his family and his
    greatness and abundance and most importantly about the wonderfulness
    of his son Isaac. Rebekah responds positively to only hearing this elaborate
    presentation, and she becomes totally amazed and overflowing with love
    and excitement – hearing more, only delightfully ignites more of that
    specialness which was already inside her. True love was the desire being
    expressed and Rebekah felt so comfortable and kindred with all of it that it
    all was easily captured into her heart. Even now there was an earnestness for
    attaining the fullness of it, even if it required giving all. The fullness of Love
    opens the door, it is the secret is that already is revealed in us.
    We are already the magnificence and fullness of that which is way beyond us.
    Our Life itself DECLARES it !
    JUST TAKE A BREATH –WHERE DOES IT COME FROM? The Ruach HaKodesh .

  7. Jeff thank you for bringing into the Malhut the physically voiced infrastructure to uncover the hidden realities waiting to unfold.
    In a twinkling of an eye as they say, what is concealed will be revealed. May we collectively be part of the critical mass to fuel that manifestation! Consciousness is everything !

  8. You have presented a literary masterpiece and compilation of your comprehensive knowledge and wisdom on the Kabbalah of human history, which is highy sensitive, analytical and creative, at the same time. Wishing you further success, progress and a chag Purim sameach.

  9. THE VESICA PISCIS & THE 42 LETTER NAME(S)

    The left side (three left columns) of the Lower 42 Letter Name has the value 2498. (The left colums have values of 589, 896 and 1013, summing to 2498).

    The left side of the Upper 42 Letter Name has row values of 11 (Vau Heh,: 6,5), 48 (Vau, Heh, Vau, Heh, Yod : 6, 10, 6, 5, 10), and 99 (Vau, Yod, Vau, Yod, Vau, Daleth, Vau, Yod, Vau, He, Yod, Yod, Vau, Daleth : 6, 10, 6, 10, 6, 4, 6, 10, 6, 5, 10, 6, 10, 4)

    Those numbers give a total (Left side of both Upper and Lower 42 Letter Names, of 147 + 2498, which sum to 2645

    The ratio of the height and beadth of the Vesica Piscis is very close to 45: 26, i.e. to numerical representations od AdaM (Aleph, Daleth, Mem : 1, 4, 40) and The Tetragrammaton (10, 5, 6, 5).

    With the help of “Professor Pythagoras” and his “Square of The Hypoteneuse thingey”, we have that the square of 26 (676) and the square of 45(2025) sum to 2701, the value of the “One-Verse” or “Uni-Verse”, programmed into existence with the energy frequencies in the First Verse of the Torah/Tanakh/Bible.

    The Divine, Man, Creation, Time and Space, Heaven and Earth, are linked in the 42 Letter Names and the First Verse. The Shema points straight at the Upper 42 Letter Name (value 708) as per the 410 + 708 = 1118 cited in Ezra’s article/post.

  10. Oops! The 48 should read as 37

    ( 37 + the 11 from the left half of the top row (Vau Heh) add to the 48)

  11. Thanks for your latest post “…It Has Begun…” We are looking forward even more to when the title will be “…It Has Happened…!!!”

    It is especially encouraging however that despite the many sever ongoing difficulties you are still so confident, writing “that the prophesied events for 5778 did take place and the process did begin then, even if the cloaked world of illusion did not allow most of us to see it. Yes, H’Moshiach, the chosen (anointed One) did arrive on G-d’s schedule, just as it was indelibly encoded in the Torah, recorded in the immutable mathematical constants, and written into our divinely given prayers.”

    Concerning the ongoing difficulties you wrote, “Like so many I have been locked in a wrestling match with the dark forces and it has been eating up so much of my time. I graciously accept all your prayers in this fight as I endeavor, B”H, to reveal many more of the deepest secrets and the revelations of light necessary for these troubled times.” Unfortunately, it is way way too easy to relate to that. Let’s all pray for one another and then surely our combined prayers will help!

    ———-

    Regarding the “many concealed Names of G-d hidden in the Scroll of Ester for our benefit,” it has been observed that a book’s authorship is often hinted in the first and last words.

    The first word of the Megillah is ויהי, Vayehi, “And it was,” in gematria is 31, which corresponds to the gematria of the Divine Name Kal, Alef Lamed, also 31.

    The last word of the Megillah is זרעו, Zaro, “his seed,” in gematria 283, and this is the same as the gematria of the significant expression in the Torah, ‘ויאמר ה, Vayomer Hashem, “And Hashem said,” 257 + 26 = 283.

    Interestingly, both numbers are prime numbers, 31 is the 11th prime, and 283 is the 61st prime, and the sum of 11 + 61 = 72, a hint to a special Kabbalistic Divine Name, formed by spelling out the four letters of Hashem’s Name to their greatest extent.

    Amazingly both of these numbers 11 and 61 are also prime numbers, 11 is the 5th prime and 61 is the 18th prime. More amazingly, the sum of these two numbers yields 5 + 18 = 23, yet another prime, the 9th prime. The combined sum of 23 + 9 = 32, which is a reflection of the number 23, and the gematria of the word לב, Lev, Heart.

    Interestingly the number 127, as in the 127 countries ruled by Achashveirosh, which is mentioned several times in the Megillah and even in the first verse, is also a prime number, the 31st prime.

    Amazingly the sum of these the three primes, 11 + 61 + 31 = 103, which is yet another prime number, the 27th prime. The combined sum of 103 + 27 = 130, which is a rearrangement of the number 103, both of which have a small gematria of 13, corresponding to the gematria of אחד, Echod, One.

    The small gematria of זרעו, Zaro, the last word, is 2 + 8 + 3 = 13 [another prime, the 6th prime], which is the reflection of the number 31, which as was said is the gematria of the first word Vayehi, and also the gematria of the word אחד, Echod, One, another hint to the One, Hashem.

    The gematria of the first word ויהי, Vayehi, together with the gematria of the last word זרעו, Zaro, is 31 + 283 = 314, the same as the gematria of the Devine Name ש-ד-י, ShaDaI, Shin Dalet Yud, which as was explained is so intimately connected to the Shma.

    Combining of the first and last words of the Megillah to yield this hint to the Devine Name ShaDaI is also reflected in the name of the king in the Megillah, אחשורוש, king Achashveirosh, which is said to be an allusion to the real King, Hashem, as also hinted the name Achashveirosh being considered a combination of the words Acharis V’Reishis, “Last and First,” which truly applies only to Hashem, as explained in many places.

    Interestingly, the sum of 314 + 127 = 441, the same as the gematria of the word אמת, Emes, Truth.

    The gematria of the second word of the Megillah, בימי, Bimei, “in the days of,” is 62, which is 2 times 31, and also the reflection of the number 26, the gematria of the Name Hashem.

    The two last words לכל זרעו, Lechol Zaro, “for all his seed,” have a gematria of 80 + 283 = 363, corresponding to the gematria of המשיח, HaMoshiach, the Messiah, likewise in gematria 363.

    The combination of the first two words and the last two words, yields a gematria of 31 + 62 + 80 + 283 = 456, and this is the same as the gematria of the combination of the two Divine Names Kel and ShaDaI, 31 + 314 = 345, plus one more for the Kolel, as expressed in the letter Alef, gematria 1, only with the Alef spelled out, Alef Lamed Feh, thus in gematria 111, since 345 + 111 = 456.

    The first three words ויהי בימי אחשורוש, Vayehi Bimei Ahachashveirosh, “And it was in the days of Achashveirosh,” are gematria 31 + 62 + 821 = 914, and this is the same as the gematria of בראשית, Breishis, “In the beginning,” plus Alef, 1, for the Kolel – thus also hinting to the first word of the First Book of the Torah, all the way through to the Last Book of the Torah, the Megillah.

    All of this is further evidence of Divine inspiration. When possible I’ll try to share some more relevant comments and feedback, but that’s all for now.

    Wishing you and all the readers a very very happy Purim!

  12. The miracle of existence is only the shadow of it. The truth and totality ‘of all’ is already completed far ahead of any discovery, so the search is suppose to be so exciting and rewarding. The revealing of H’Moshiach must first be experienced deep in the heart, way down into the core essence of who we are (already the sons and daughters of our Holy G-d), for the revelation and experience of H’Moshiach to be appreciated and meaningful. The longer the wait, is the crescendo to the actual jubilation ! May all be blessed now with this excitement, and see that what we are waiting for, has already been realized. “Shalom”

  13. Ariel Cohen Alloro – General Overview – First Coming & Second Coming of the Messiah – 6 Vídeos . Very important. Many thanks, Jeff for your effort and work as well as all those who contribute in their messages. Salomón & Peace. Chag Purim Sameach

  14. In continuation to what was explained above about prime numbers appearing in the beginning and ending of the Megillah, there are also many more notable examples of this:

    The name of the heroine of the Megillah, אסתר, Esther, in gematria is 661, and 661 is a prime number, the 121st prime. In addition, the small gematria of Esther is 6 + 6 + 1 = 13, with 13 also being a prime, the 6th prime, and again this is also the gematria of אחד, Echod, One.

    The name of the hero of the Megillah is מרדכי, Mordechi, in gematria 274, which is not prime, however his full name as it appears in the Megillah (2:5), מרדכי בן יאיר בן שמעי בן קיש, Mordechai son of Yoir son of Shimi son of Kish, is gematria 274 + 52 + 221 + 52 + 420 + 52 + 410 = 1481, which is a prime number, the 234th prime. Also in small gamatria Mordechai 274 is 2 + 7 + 4 = 13, again with 13 being a prime, the 6th prime, and again this is also the gematria of אחד, Echod, One.

    Another hero of the Megillah is חרבונה, Charvonah, who spoke to king Achashveirosh and led to the king’s decision to hang Haman (Megillah 7:9), and who identified by our sages o.b.m. with revelation of Eliyahu Hanavi, in gematria is 271, and this is also a prime number, the 58th prime.

    Further, the king אחשורוש, Achashveirosh, in gematria is 821, and this too is a prime number, the 142nd prime.

    Moreover, המן, Haman, the villain in the Megillah, in gematria is 95, not prime, however the way his full name appears in the Megillah (3:1), המן בן המדתא האגגי, Haman son of Hamedosa the Agagi, it has a gemtria of 95 + 52 + 450 + 22 = 619, and this is a prime number, the 114th prime.

    Also the phrase בני המן, Benei Haman, “the sons of Haman,” who conspired against the Jews with him and were hung on the tree, is gematria 62 + 95 = 157, which is prime, the 37th prime, and 37 itself is also prime, the 12th prime.

    Further, the arch-enemies of the Jews, Haman and his 10 sons, sum to 11, which is prime, the 5th prime. Moreover, together with the total number of enemies of the Jews killed in Shushan, the capitol city, 500 on the first day and 300 on the next day, yields a sum of 1 + 10 + 500 + 300 = 811, which is also prime, the 141st prime.

    Additionally, both Mordechai and Haman are given the appellation איש, Ish, “man,” with a gematria of 311, which is a prime number, the 64th prime.

    Incidentally, in the Megillah (2:5) Mordechai is called both איש יהודי, Ish Yehudi, and איש ימיני, Ish Yemini, and together these two phrases sum to 311 + 121 + 311 + 35 = 778, as in the pivital year (5)778 [perhaps the 5 for 5000 is hinted in this being verse 5].

    Another example of a prime number in the last word of the first verse of the Megillah, the word מדינה, Mediah, “country,” in gematria 109, which is prime, the 29th prime, with the number 29 itself also being prime, the 10th prime. This could be elaborated on in more depth however there is no time for it right now…

    All of this is very striking and seemingly significant, perhaps also being connected to the idea that the name ישראל, Yisroel, in gematria 541, is also a prime, the 100th prime, and the number of Mitzvos, 613, is also a prime, the 112th prime.

  15. Dear Moshe,
    Just a “tribute” made in appreciation (and almost in “awe”) of the enormous amount of interesting material you have posted over what has been so many many moths . . .

  16. Thank you Peter for your kind words which are much appreciated. Here meanwhile are a few more interesting thoughts continuing from what was explained in my last comment:

    Another hero in the Megillah, that I did not mentioned before, is התך, Hasach, described in the Megillah (4:5) as “one of the king’s chamberlains whom he had appointed to attend to her [Esther].”

    Interestingly, the gematria of the name Hasach is 425, which is not a prime, however, when the letters of this name are spelled out fully, הי תו כף, Heh Tav Chof, then the gematria is 15 + 406 + 100 = 521, and 521 is indeed also a prime number, the 98th prime.

    Our sages o.b.m. discuss Hasach, whom both Esther and Mordechai obviously trusted implicitly with their most closely guarded secrets, and identified him with דניאל, Daniel. It is interesting that the two names Hasach and Daniel combine to yield 425 + 95 = 520, and with 1 more to indicate they are one person, or with 1 more for the Kolel, the sum is also the same prime number 521.

    Further, it is interesting that Daniel was also given the name בלטשאצר, Baltshatzar, by the Chief of the chamberlains (as stated in Daniel 1:7), and in gemtaria the name Baltshatzar is 632, which is the same as 521 plus 111, which is Alef, 1, spelled out Alef Lamed Feh, 521 + 111 = 632.

    It is also interesting that the gematria of דניאל, Daniel, is 95, which is the same as the gematria of המן, Haman, and the same as the gematria of the word המלך, HaMelech, “the king,” which has such a prominent role in the Megillah, and this may indicate that the righteous Daniel stood in opposition to the wicked Haman, and in opposition to the only slightly less wicked king Achashveirosh who “degraded” him from his previously greater position – as indicated by the meaning of his alternative name “Hasach” (see Rashi on Megillah 4:5, based on the Gemarah Meggillah 15a).

    The name Daniel has a meaning of “G-d (Kel) has judged me,” and the letters of the name Daniel may be rearranged to spell ל-א-ד-נ-י, L’Adon-ai, “to G-d,” where the Divine Name Alef Dalet Nun Yud represents the Divine attributes of Kingship and Judgment. It is also interesting that the 95th prime number is 499, which is the gematria of the Divine Name צ-ב-א-ו-ת, Tzevokos, that is used in conjunction with other Divine Names, usually translated as “L-rd of Hosts” or as “G-d of Hosts.”

    ——–

    Here is also fitting to add about Mordechai, that according to the Mishnah (Shkolim ch. 5, Mishna 1) he also was known by another name, פתחיה, Petachya: “Petachya is Mordechai. Why was he called Petachya? Because he would open [Poteach] with words and interpret them, and he knew seventy languages.” It is amazing that the name Petachya in gematria is 503, which is yet another prime number, the 96th prime.

    ———-

    Additionally regarding Esther, she also has another name that is stated openly in the Megillah, הדסה, Hadasah, and while in gematria the name Hadasah is 74, a non-prime, however the number 74 may be understood as the equivalent of 73 + 1, where 73 is a prime number, the 21st prime. Further, the reflection of the number 74 is the number 47, and 47 is also a prime number, the 15th prime, and with 15 also being the gematria of the Divine Name י-ה, Yud Keh, Kah. Also 74 is equivalent to 2 x 37, where 37 is also a prime number, the 12th prime.

    Moreover, Esther’s father’s name is stated in the Megillah (2:15), אביחיל, Avichayil, and in gematria the name Avichayil is 61, which amazingly is also a prime number, the 18th prime, and further, in that verse Esther is called בת אביחיל, Bas Avichayil, “the daughter of Avichayil,” and in gematria this phrase is 402 + 61 = 463, and again, amazingly, the number 463 is also yet another prime number, the 90th prime.

    ———-

    What is the connection of all of these prime numbers to Purim?

    Isn’t it interesting that the words “Prime” and “Purim” are so similar?

    Further, the meaning of “Purim” is connected with the idea of a “lottery” and so-to-speak “happenstance” and “chance,” and similarly with regard to prime numbers, they too seem to be basically “random” without any apparent rule for generating them.

    The Megillah teaches however that nothing is by chance, and that includes everything in the physical and in the spiritual universe, including all the laws of science and mathematics. Everything is controlled in the most exquisite detail by the Infinite One, the Almighty Creator, the One and Only Hashem, praise be His Name.

    (To be continued בע”ה.)

  17. In connection to the previous comments, another idea that was not mentioned before, is that there is also another way the name Achashveirosh is spelled in the Megillah, in verse 10:1, where the name is written defectively, as אחשרש, without either of the two letter Vovs that are normally part of the name, although it is still pronounced the same way when the Megillah is read. It is interesting to note that this way of spelling אחשרש, Achashveirosh, in gematria is 809, and again amazingly the number 809 is a prime number, the 140th prime.

    Also not mentioned before was Achashveirosh’s first queen, Queen Vashti, and while the gematria of ושתי, Vashti, 716, is not a prime, however the gematria of the combination of the two words מלכה ושתי, Malka Vashti, “Queen Vashti,” which is 95 + 716 = 811, is a prime number, the 141st prime.

    Further, the reverse or reflection of these numbers, with 95 becoming 59 and 716 becoming 617, are also both prime numbers, with 59 being the 17th prime, and 617 being the 113th prime. Interestingly these numbers too are primes, 17 being the 7th prime, and 113 being the 30th prime, and their reverses or reflections are also primes, with 17 becoming 71, the 20th prime, and 113 becoming 311, the 64th prime.

    ———-

    There is a relatively famous hint, brought at the end of MaAm Loez on Megillas Esther, that the Megillah has 166 verses, corresponding to the combined 166 words of the two Torah portions that command the destruction of Amolek. The first of these Torah portion is Exodus 17:8-16, with 119 words, and the second portion is Deuteronomy 25:17-19, with 47 words, which together sum to 119 + 47 = 166 words.

    With regard to these two Torah portions it may be pointed out that although the number 119, which is the number of words in the first portion, is not a prime number, however its reverse or reflection, 911, is a prime number, the 156th prime. The number of words in the second portion is 47, and 47 is a prime number, the 15th prime.

    Also interestingly the first words of each of these two Torah portions are also primes. The first word of the first portion is ויבא, VaYavo, “And he [Amolek] came,” in gematria is 19, and 19 is the 8th prime, and the first word of the second portion, זכור, Zochor, “Remember [what Amolek did to you],” in gematria is 233, and 233 is the 51st prime. Further the numbers 8 + 51 = 59, and 59 is also a prime number, the 17th prime, and the number 17 as was said is also prime, the 7th prime, and its reverse or reflection 71 is the 20th prime.

    Incidentally these two Torah portions commanding the destruction of Amolek have 8 verses and 3 verses respectively, for a total of 8 + 3 = 11 verses, and notably 11 is a prime number, the 5th prime.

    Interestingly, the number 166, although it is not prime, it is the reverse or reflection of the number 661, which as was said above, is the gematria of the name אסתר, Esther, and 661 is a prime number, the 121st prime, which is the same frontwards or in reverse, or whether seen directly or in reflection.

    By the way, the idea of reading numbers in reverse order, or in reflection, seems to be hinted in the Megillah, since the Megillah stresses how the situation back then in those days became reversed, as it says in verse 9:1, ונהפוך הוא, V’nahafoch Hu, “and it was reversed”: “…on the very day that the enemies of the Jews expected to gain the upper hand over them, and it was reversed, the Jews gained the upper hand over their adversaries.”

    At this point it is important to note that if one actually does the counting, and adds up all the verses in the Megillah, the number one gets is not 166 verses, but rather one more, 167 verses. I have seen that this is explained away by using the rule of adding or subtracting 1 for the Kolel, in order to make the numbers coincide, or perhaps by assuming that there may have been an alternate way of dividing up the verses, and joining two verses together so that the number is 166 instead of 167. [There may also be another way to explain this too, however that explanation will have to remain for another occasion if possible.]

    At any rate, with regard to the seemingly more accurate number of verses in the Megillah, 167, it is remarkable that the number 167 is a prime number, the 39th prime, and also its reverse or reflection, 761, is a prime number, the 135th prime.

    It is also interesting that in the key phrase from the Megillah mentioned above, ונהפוך הוא, V’nahafoch Hu, “and it was reversed,” the word ונהפוך, V’nahafoch, in gematria is itself the number 167, which as was said, is a prime number, and together with the second word of the phrase הוא, Hu, the sum is 167 + 12 = 179, which is also a prime number, the 41st prime, and continuing in this way, the number 41 is also prime, the 13th prime, and 13 is also prime, the 6th prime.

    ———-

    It is also brought there in MaAm Loez, that Halel HaGodol, which is Psalm 136, also has 166 words corresponding to the 166 verses of the Megillah, and it also says there that the gematria of the words חסידים בכבוד, Chassidim B’Chovod, “the pious (exalt) with glory,” from verse Psalms 149:5, is also 166, and this is correct since 132 + 34 = 166.

    With regard to Halel Hagadol, Psalm 136, the number 136 is not a prime, but its reverse or reflection, 631, is a prime, the 115th prime. Also 136 plus 1 for the Kolel is 137, which is a prime, the 33rd prime. Additionally, the gematria of the title הלל הגדול, Halel Hagadol, “The Great Praise,” is 65 + 48 = 113, which is a prime, the 30th prime. Further the numbers 113 and 30 in reverse or in reflection are 311 and 03 respectively, and 311 is the 64th prime and 03 is the 2nd prime. Additionally this Psalm, recited every Shabbos and Yom Tov, is called “The Great Praise,” because it begins with “Hodu L’Hashem,” “Give praise to Hashem,” and it contains 26 verses with 26 times the refrain “Ki L’olam Chasdo,” “for His kindness endures forever,” corresponding to the gematria of the Divine Name Hashem.

    With regard to Psalm 149, the number 149 is prime, the 35th prime, and its reverse or reflection 941 is also prime, the 160th prime. Further the numbers 35 and 160 in reverse or reflection are 53 and 061 respectively, both of which are also prime, 53 being the 16th prime, and 061 being the 18th prime. Also interestingly Psalm 149 has precisely 61 words, another hint to the 18th prime. Moreover, interestingly the word Chassidim, “pious,” the initial word of the hint that was discussed, is the exact middle word of the Psalm, i.e., its 31st word, and 31 is also a prime number, the 11th prime, and continuing in this way, with the number 11 also being prime, the 5th prime, and with 5 also being prime, the 3rd prime, and with 3 also being prime, the 2nd prime, and with 2 also being prime, the 1st prime!

    This Psalm, Psalm 149, is recited daily in our morning prayers, and if only we would pray like real Chassidim, with lofty thoughts in our minds, then surely Hashem would hear us and answer us right away!

    (To be continued בע”ה.)

  18. Beautiful work on Esther and primes, etc as per usual. Thank you. We all thank you. Shortly, we will lay bare whole new layers of encoding and take primes to a level way beyond what we’ve been looking at. I look forward to your invaluable feedback when we get there. Shabbat Shalom

  19. Thank you too, Ezra, for everything. We are certainly looking forward to your next revelations. Meanwhile, here are a few more comments about the predominance of Primes in Purim:

    Another character in the Megillah, not previously mentioned, is the wicked Haman’s wicked wife זרש, Zeresh, and this name in gematria is 707. Although the number 707 is not prime, nevertheless it is obviously an interesting number, being the same frontward or backward, with digits 7 at its beginning and end. Further, it has significant prime factors, since 707 = 7 x 101, where 7 is the 4th prime number and 101 is the 26th prime number, perhaps hinting to the 4 letter Divine Name Hashem with gematria 26.

    Moreover, near the end of the special acrostic Piyut, liturgical poem, recited after reading the Megillah, more commonly known for its stanza starting “Shoshanas Yakov,” it says ארורה זרש אשת מפחידי, Arurah Zeresh Eishesh Mafchidi, “Accursed be Zeresh the wife of my terrorizer.” Interestingly, the two words ארורה זרש, “Accursed be Zeresh,” are gematria 412 + 707 = 919, and 919 is a prime number, the 157th prime, and with 157 itself being the 37th prime, and with 37 itself being the 12th prime. In addition, the two words אשת מפחידי, “wife of my terrorizer,” are gematria 701 + 152 = 853, where 701 is the 126th prime, and 152 in reverse or in reflection is 251, which is prime, the 54th prime, and the sum number, 853, is also prime, the 147th prime.

    The mention of the wicked Zeresh in this Piyut is countered by mention of the righteous Esther, ברוכה אסתר בעדי, Bruchah Esther Ba’adi, “Blessed be Esther [who sacrificed] for me.” The first word ברוכה, “blessed,” is gematria 233, which is prime, the 51st prime, and אסתר, Esther, as was said, is gematria 661, the 121st prime, and the word בעדי, “[who sacrificed] for me,” is gematria 86, corresponding to the gematria of the Divine Name Elokim. Adding a Kolel of 1 for each of these 3 words gives 233 + 661 + 86 + 3 = 983, which is also a prime number, the 166th prime, corresponding to the 166 [plus 1] verses of Megillas Esther.

    ———-

    In the same Shoshanas Yakov Piyut, just before the mention of Zeresh and Esther, there is mention of Haman and Mordechai, ארור המן אשר בקש לאבדי, Arur Haman Asher Bikeish L’abdi, “Accursed be Haman who sought to destroy me,” and ברוך מרדכי היהודי, Baruch Mordechai HaYehudi, “Blessed be Mordechai the Yehudi.” It is famous that the gematrias of Arur Haman and Baruch Mordechai are equivalent, since the wicked Haman is perfectly countered by the righteous Mordechai. The two words ארור המן, Arur Haman, are 407 + 95 = 502, and the two words ברוך מרדכי, Boruch Mordechai, are 228 + 274 = 502. Taking the average for each word, it comes out that 502 / 2 = 251, and as mentioned above the number 251 is prime, the 54th prime.

    Additionally the words added after Haman, אשר בקש לאבדי, Asher Bikeish L’abdi, “who sought to destroy me,” in gematria are 501 + 402 + 47 = 1050. Of these numbers only 47 is prime, the 15th prime, however when 1 is added for the Kolel, 1050 + 1 = 1051, which is prime, the 177th prime, and when 11 is added, 1 for each of the 11 letters 1050 + 11 = 1061, which is prime, the 178th prime.

    The word added after Mordechai, היהודי, HaYehudi, is gematria 40, and with a Kolel of 1 for the word itself, 40 + 1 = 41, the 13th prime [with 13 being the 6th prime], and with another 6 more for the 6 letters sums to 41 + 6 = 47, again the 15th prime.

    ———-

    The blessing before reading the Megillah concludes with the words מקרא מגלה, Mikrah Megillah, “[Blessed are You Hashem… Who commanded us regarding] reading the Megillah,” and in gematria these words sum to 341 + 78 = 419, and 419 is a prime number, the 81st prime.

    The blessing after reading the Megillah concludes with the words ה-א-ל המושיע, HaKel Hamoshia, “the G-d Who saves,” which in gematria are 36 + 431 = 467. The first word HaKel, “The G-d,” may be seen as being composed of the letter Heh, gemaria 5, and the letters Alef and Lamend, gematria 31, with 5 being the 3rd prime [and then with 3 being the 2nd prime, and 2 being the 1st prime], and with 31 being the 11th prime [and then with 11 being the 5th prime, 5 being the 3rd prime, 3 being the 2nd prime, and 2 being the 1st prime]. The second word Hamoshia, in gematria is 431, which is prime, the 83rd prime, and with 83 being the 23rd prime, and 23 being the 9th prime. The sum of the two words HaKel Hamoshia is 467, which is also prime, the 91st prime, and with 91 being the gematria of the sum of the two Divine Names, י-ה-ו-ה א-ד-נ-י, Hashem Ad-nai, 26 + 65 = 91, and also the gematria of the word אמן, Amen.

    ———-

    Here is also fitting to mention that it is brought in Sefarim that “Shoshanas Yakov,” “The Rose of Yakov,” is a hint to Esther, who lived in the Persian capitol city of Shushan, especially since the gematria of the name שושנה, Shoshanah, “Rose,” is also 661, exactly the same as the gematria of the name אסתר, Esther.

    Interestingly, the word שושנת, Shoshanas, “The Rose,” is gematria 1056, and with the 5 letters of the word it sums to 1056 + 5 = 1061, which as mentioned above is a prime number, the 178th prime. Further, the next word, the name יעקב, Yakov, is gematria 182 (with the hint that 7 x 26 = 182), and in reverse or reflection 182 becomes 281, which is a prime, the 60th prime. Together, the two words שושנת יעקב, Shoshanas Yakov, sum to 1056 + 182 = 1238, and with 9 for the 9 letters and 2 for the 2 words sums to 1238 + 9 + 2 = 1249, which is prime, the 204th prime.

    ———-

    Likewise, here it is fitting to mention that the Zohar opens with a wonderful introduction based on the verse Shir HaShirim 2:2, כשושנה בין החוחים, K’Shoshanah Bein Hachochim, “Like a rose among the thorns,” and explains various details of how the Shoshanah/rose flower also hints to the Congregation of Israel, including its 2 colors, red and white, its 13 petals, and its 5 sepal-leaves that protect it from the thorns. It is interesting that these numbers 2, 13 and 5, are all primes.

    It is also interesting that the word הזוהר, HaZohar, The Zohar, is gematria 223, which is a prime number, the 48th prime, and the words ספר הזהר, Sefer HaZohar, The Book of The Zohar, are gematria 340 + 217 = 557, and 557 is prime, the 102nd prime, and when spelled fully with a letter Vov, ספר הזוהר, Sefer HaZohar, the gematria is 340 + 223 = 563, and 563 is also prime, the 103rd prime, and with 103 itself also being prime, the 27th prime.

    Accordingly this would be an auspicious time for each one to review to the best of his or her ability what is stated there in the beginning of the Zohar, and to commit oneself to living one’s life in accordance with the Mitzvos of the Torah and in accordance with the inner wisdom of the Torah, the Kabbalah.

    By the way, the word קבלה, Kabbalah, is gematria 137, which is a prime number, the 33rd prime, and סודות קבלה, Sodos Kabbalah, Secrets of Kabbalah, or “Kabbalah Secrets,” is gematria 137 + 476 = 613, which 613, as was said before, is the number of Mitzvos, and also a prime number, the 112th prime.

    All of the above seems to be most significant, and impossible to attribute to mere “chance” and “coincidence.” Rather, this seems to be more incontrovertible evidence of the influence and guidance of Hashem, and the more we recognize this, the more great revelations we will merit to be able to see, both in this world and in the world to come.

    (To be continued בע”ה.)

  20. This is just a quick note to say I’m sorry for an unfortunate mistake that somehow accidentally crept in at the beginning of my previous comment, where I wrote about זרש, Zeresh, that the gematria of this name is 707. That is clearly a mistake; instead of 707 it is 507 (and it is still not a prime).

    For some reason I did not catch this mistake even when in the next paragraph I used the gematria of the name Zeresh again, writing that the two words ארורה זרש, “Accursed be Zeresh,” are gematria 412 + 707 = 919 (and 919 is a prime number, etc.), however in that case at least the final sum 919 is still correct, it is just that the formula should have stated 412 + 507 = 919.

    On the positive side perhaps someone needed to see the “Megillah” that I wrote about the number 707 being connected to the Name Hashem, which anyway is also still correct.

    Regarding the real gematria of זרש, Zeresh, which is 507, its prime factors are 3 x 13 x 13, and perhaps it can be said that when these factors are added together instead of multiplied, then 3 + 13 + 13 = 29, and 29 is a prime number, the 10th prime.

    Alternatively, 507 plus 3, i.e., 1 for each of the 3 letters of Zeresh, is 510, which is 509 plus 1 for the Kolel, and 509 is a prime, the 97th prime, with 97 also being prime, the 25th prime. [Also 510 is the gematria of the letter Reish spelled out ריש, Reish Yud Shin, and the gematria of the letter Reish is 200, which is the difference between my mistaken 707 and the actual gematria of Zeresh, 507.]

    At any rate, please forgive my mistake, for it is only human to err, and no one can be perfect or correct all the time, especially when trying to do so much, and especially when simultaneously having to juggle many different things under not the most optimal circumstances. The best we can do is to try to fix our mistakes as quickly as possible when we discover them, and resolve to more careful in the future.

  21. Continuing from what was explained above:

    After cursing Haman, blessing Mordechai, cursing Zeresh, and blessing Esther, the “Shoshanas Yakov” prayer concludes with the words וגם חרבונה זכור לטוב, V’Gam Charvonah Zachur LaTov, “and also Charvonah remembered for good.” The gematria of Charvonah was already explained to be 271, a prime number, the 58th prime.

    It is interesting that in this phrase the first word of the phrase, the word before Charvonah, וגם, V’Gam, “and also,” is gematria 49, which is also a “good” number, with multifaceted significance throughout the Torah since it is the product of a key prime number squared, i.e., 7 x 7 [and therefore reminiscent of the number 707 that was accidentally explained above]. If the prefix letter ו, Vov, gematria 6, which simply means “and,” is discounted, and just the root word גם, Gam, “also,” is counted, then the gematria is 43, and 43 is also a prime number, the 14th prime.

    The reverse or reflection of 14, the number 41, is also prime, the 13th prime, and 13 is also prime, the 6th prime, and also 13 in reverse or reflection is 31, another prime, the 11th prime, which 11 is identical in reverse or reflection, and 11 is also prime, the 5th prime, with 5 being the 3rd prime, 3 the 2nd prime, and 2 the 1st prime.

    Next comes the word חרבונה, Charvonah, in gematria 271, the 58th prime, as was explained.

    Then comes the word זכור, Zachur, “remembered,” which is gematria 233, also a prime number, the 51st prime.

    Then the last word of the phrase, and the last word of the prayer, is לטוב, LaTov, “for good,” and for the moment discounting the initial prefix letter ל, Lamed, “for,” the root word טוב, Tov, “good,” is gematria 17, which is prime, the 7th prime (and with 7 being the 4th prime), and together with the prefix letter ל, Lamed, gematria 30, the total for the word לטוב, Latov, “for good,” is 47, which also is a prime number, the 15th prime.

    It is amazing that this phrase, with consecutive words that are primes, contains 17 letters, and as was said, 17 is the 7th prime (with 7 being the 4th prime), and the sum of the gematria of all 4 words of the phrase is 49 + 271 + 233 + 47 = 600, an even 600, and with 1 more for the Kolel it is 600 + 1 = 601, which 601 is a prime number, the 110th prime, and with 17 more, 1 for each of the 17 letters, the sum is 600 + 17 = 617, and 617 is also prime, the 113th prime – the next prime after 613, the 112th prime, as explained above – and as also noted above, the number 113 is also a prime, the 30th prime.

    Also, as mostly already explained above, the reverse or reflection of the numbers 17, 110, 113, and 30, are also all primes, for 17 transforms into 71, the 20th prime, and 110 transforms into 011, the 5th prime (and 5 is the 3rd prime, 3 the 2nd prime, and 2 the 1st prime), and 113 transforms into 311, the 64th prime, and 30 transforms into 03, the 2nd prime (and again 2 is the 1st prime). Similarly, but not yet pointed out above, the number 112 (613 being the 112th prime) in reverse or reflection transforms into 211, which is also prime, the 47th prime, and also as said above, the number 47 is yet another prime, the 15th prime.

    ———-

    As mentioned above, Charvonah is identified by our sages o.b.m. with revelation of Eliyahu Hanavi. It is interesting that a similar expression is frequently used in the sayings of our sages o.b.m. regarding Eliyahu Hanavi, אליהו הנביא זכור לטוב, Eliyahu Hanavi Zachur LaTov, “Eliyahu the prophet remembered for good,” and in gematria this phrase is 52 + 68 + 233 + 47 = 400, an even 400, and with 1 more for the Kolel, 400 + 1 = 401, and 401 is also a prime number, the 79th prime, and again 79 is also a prime number, the 22nd prime.

    Together the gematria of the two phrases, about Eliyahu and about Charvonah, is 400 + 600 = 1000, the very significant and complete number that has been explained many times.

    Further, in the phrase for Eliyahu there are 18 letters, and with 1 for the Kolel, 18 + 1 = 19, a prime number, the 8th prime, and all together with 1 for the Kolel and 18 for the 18 letters, the entire phrase sums to 400 + 1 + 18 = 419, and as was said above the number 419 is also prime, the 81st prime. Further the number 81 in reverse or reflection is 18, Chai, “life,” the number of letters in this phrase, and also 81 is the gematria of the Divine Name אנכי, Anochi, “I am.”

    Moreover, the number 419 in reverse is 914, and this also takes us back to the beginning of the Torah, since בראשית, Bereishis, “In the beginning,” the first word of the Torah, together with 1 for the Kolel, the Anochi, Hashem, is also 914, 913 + 1 = 914.

    Importantly, too, if the initial prefix letter ב, Beis, “in,” is discounted, then the root word ראשית, Reishis, “beginning,” is gematria 911, and 911 is also a prime number, the 156th prime, with 156 being equal to 6 x 26, i.e., 6 times the gematria of the Divine Name Hashem, as explained in many places.

    (To be continued בע”ה.)

  22. 707 vs 507

    Moshe, I laughed when I saw your note abour Zeresh and her erroneous gematria of 707. Your “batting average” just dropped from 100% to about 99.99% ! Still “High Distinction” and Top of The Class level in any field of human endeavour!

    On a less humourous note, it was probably an “inspired” adjustment to the figure. Zeresh almost HAD TO HAVE BEEN a very nasty dark witch to be married to her monster of a husband. There may be some deeper “hint” in your coming up with half the square root of 2 (0.707 as half of 1.414).

    (As per my earlier comment from a few days back, your posts are wonderful, regardless of any “one digit error” in years’ worth of work.)

  23. Thanks again Peter, for your humor and for the square root of 2 idea. I should have just written “April fools,” or something to that effect. Anyway, here are more thoughts in continuation to what was explained previously.

    Above it was explained that the phrase אליהו הנביא זכור לטוב, Eliyahu Hanavi Zachur LaTov, “Eliyahu the prophet remembered for good,” in gematria 400, with 1 more for the Kolel, and 18 for the 18 letters, the entire phrase sums to 400 + 1 + 18 = 419, the 81st prime, corresponding to the Divine Name אנכי, Anochi, “I am,” gematria 81, and that in reverse 81 is 18, indicating the Hashem is חי, Chai, “Alive,” and the Source of all “Life,” and that in reverse 419 is 914, reminiscent of the first word of the Torah, בראשית, Bereishis, “In the beginning,” gematria 913, since together with 1 for the Kolel, 913 + 1 = 914.

    The number 419 is also significant in that it is the gematria of the 9th letter ט, Tes, spelled out as a word טית, Tes, letters Tes Yud Sav, 9 + 10 + 400 = 419. Interestingly the small gematria of either 81 or 18 is 8 + 1 = 9, and they are both products of 9, since 2 x 9 = 18, and 9 x 9 = 81, and when 81 and 18 are summed together 81 + 18 = 99, which is the same as 11 x 9 = 99. As explained in many places this is a special quality of the number 9, that “In base 10 a positive number is divisible by 9 if and only if its digital root is 9. That is, if any natural number is multiplied by 9, and the digits of the answer are repeatedly added until it is just one digit, the sum will be nine: … 9 × 9 = 81 (8 + 1 = 9).”

    It is possible to say that the number 9 corresponds to Eliyahu Hanavi, while the number 10 corresponds to Moshiach, since Eliyahu is the herald who comes before and prepares the way and announces the arrival of Moshiach, just as the number 9 precedes and comes immediately before the arrival of the number 10, the number representing completeness.

    Interestingly, the number previous to 419, i.e., the number 418, is the gematria of the 8th letter ח, Ches, when it is spelled out חית, Ches Yud Sav, 8 + 10 + 400 = 418. Then, as said, comes the number 419, which is the gematria of the 9th letter ט, spelled out Tes Yud Sav. The letters Ches and Tes are unique in this regard, that just as their gematrias 8 and 9 are adjacent, so too when spelled out as words חית and טית, the gematrias of these words are also are adjacent, 418 and 419.

    Then comes the number after 419, i.e., the number 420, which is 10 x 42, where 10 corresponds to the letter Yud, the 10th letter of the Alef Beis, in gematria 10, which is the number of completeness, representing the 10 Sefiros, the 10 Divine sayings in creation, the 10 Commandments, and the 10 letters of Tetragrammaton, the Divine Name י-ה-ו-ה, where each of the letters י-ה-ו-ה is expanded and spelled out, יוד הי ויו הי. The 42 represents the mystical 42 letter Divine Name, the cumulative sum of the number of letters of the Divine Name Hashem when expanded and spelled out a second time, יוד ויו דלת הי יוד ויו יוד ויו הי יוד, such that the total number of letters is 4 + 10 + 28 = 42. The number 420 is also connected to a high level of completeness of the letter Yud. since י, Yud, spelled out יוד, Yud Vov Dalet, is gematria 20, and in completeness 20 x 20 = 400, and then summed together, 20 + 400 = 420.

    ———-

    The gematria of the first level of the Name Hashem is 26, the gematria of the next level, the expanded Name Hashem is 72, and the gematria of the next level, the doubly expanded Name Hashem, is 610, for a cumulative sum of 26 + 72 + 610 = 708, as Ezra wrote in the post. Interestingly 72 plus 1 for the Kolel is the key number 73, which is connected with the first verse of the Torah, and 610 plus 1 for the Kolel is 611, the gematria of the word תורה, Torah [and this is also connected to the number 707 = 7 x 101 (the 4th and the 26th prime respecively, as discussed before), since 707 + 1 for the Kolel = 708].

    In the blog post Ezra wrote “While the first word of the Shema (sh’ma שמע) has the same numerical value (410) of the word Holy (Kadosh קדוש), the rest of its first verse has the gematria of the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d (708), thus entire first verse of the Shema is 1118. Incidentally in reverse, 1118 becomes 8111, which is prime, the 1020th prime.

    Ezra also has written that the small gematria value of the 42 letter Name is 173, and that the number 173 is the 40th prime, however I am having difficulty finding a clear explanation of more specifically how the number 173 is derived from the 42 letter Name, which if Ezra or someone else can provide would be appreciated.

    ———-

    It was also explained above that discounting the initial prefix letter ב, Beis, “In,” the root word ראשית, Reishis, “Beginning,” is gematria 911, another prime number, the 156th prime, with 156 being equal to 6 x 26, i.e., 6 times the gematria of the Divine Name Hashem.

    It should also be noted regarding the initial prefix letter ב, Beis, “In,” that the letter Beis is the 2nd letter of the Alef Beis, in gematria 2, and in and of itself the number 2 is also a prime number, the 1st prime, and especially since the initial letter of the Torah, this letter Beis, is written larger than the other regular letters, to the extent that in some regards it may be considered a word for itself, therefore from this perspective, with regard to primes, the Torah indeed does begin with a 1, the 1st prime.

    Since the Torah (five Books of Moshe) ends with the word ישראל, Yisroel, in gematria 541, which as explained is also a prime number, the 100th prime, with 100 being a number of completeness, 10 x 10 = 100, thus it is seen that from this “primary” perspective that the Torah begins with 1 and ends with 100.

    Interestingly, the letter Beis when spelled out as a word בית, Beis (also meaning “house,” hinting that the created world was intended to be a “house” or “temple” for the Creator), with letters Beis Yud Sav, its gematria is 412, and therefore it fits the pattern with the above discussed letters Ches and Tes, that together with its ending letters Yud and Sav, gematria 410 – which is also 10 x 41, where 41 is the 13th prime, and 13 is the 5th prime, 5 the 3rd prime, 3 the 2nd prime, and 2 the 1st prime – and with these three letters with their gematria 2, 8, and 9 respectively as the initial letters of their words.

    Interestingly summing these numbers together 2 + 8 + 9 = 19, a prime number, the 8th prime. All together 412 + 418 + 419 = 1249, which is also prime, the 204th prime, and in reverse 1249 becomes 9421, which is also prime, the 1166th prime.

    Interestingly, when 10 is added to the combination of 2, 8, and 9, then 2 + 8 + 9 + 10 = 29, another prime, indeed the 10th prime. Further, when 412 + 418 + 419 = 1249 is combined with 420, which as explained above is connected with the letter Yud, the sum is 1249 + 420 = 1669, which amazingly is also prime, the 263rd prime, and 263 itself is also prime, the 56th prime. Further, in reverse 1669 becomes 9661 which is also prime, the 1193rd prime.

    ———-

    A little bit about the connection between Eliyahu and Charvona was explained above, and continuing on this theme, there is also another Biblical figure identified with Eliyahu, פינחס, Pinchus the son of Elozor the son of Aharon the Kohan. Our sages o.b.m. state that פינחס הוא אליהו, Pinchus Hu Eliyahu, “Pinchus is Eliyahu,” and the gematria of this phrase is 208 + 12 + 52 = 272, which is the same as חרבונה, Charvonah, plus 1 for the Kolel, 271 + 1 = 272.

    Indeed the name ח’ר’בונה, Charvonah, starts with letters Ches and Reish, in gematria 8 + 200 = 208, which is the same as the gematria of the name פינחס, Pinchus, likewise 208. The name חרב’ונ’ה, Charvonah, also has in it the letters Beis and Nun, gematria 2 + 50 = 52, the same as the gematria of the name אליהו, Eliyahu, likewise 52. That leaves the letters וה, Vov and Heh, in ‘חרבו’נה, Charvonah, in gematria 6 + 5 = 11, which may represent 1’s for the Kolel, or the Vov and Heh at the end of the Divine Name Y-H-V-H, and 11 is also the 5th prime (with 5 being the 3rd prime, 3 being the 2nd prime, and 2 being the 1st prime).

    Also interestingly the sum of the three names Pinchus, Eliyahu, and Charvonah, is 52 + 271 + 208 = 531, which is the product of 9 x 59 = 531 (with 59 being the 17th prime, etc.), and together with 1 for each of the 16 letters sums to 531 + 16 = 547, and 547 is a prime number, the 101st prime, and 101 itself is also prime, the 26th prime (as mentioned above). Interestingly, the name ישראל, Yisroel, gematria 541, the 100th prime, plus 1 for each of the 5 letters, plus 1 for the Kolel, is 541 + 5 + 1 = 547, the same number, the 101st prime.

    The difference between Pinchus and Eliyahu is 208 – 52 = 156, the number discussed above as being 6 x 26, also the gematria of יוסף, Yosef, as explained many times.

    The difference between Pinchus and Charvonah is 271 – 208 = 63, corresponding to 7 x 9, and 63 also represents another mystical Divine Name explained in Kabbalah, based on a different way of spelling out the four letter of the Divine Name Hashem.

    The difference between Charvonah and Eliyahu is 271 – 52 = 219, which although not a prime, is a “semiprime,” since it is the product of the two primes, 3 and 73, for 3 x 73 = 219. The idea of a semiprime has not been mentioned yet, however “a semiprime is a natural number that is the product of two prime numbers. The two primes in the product may equal each other, so the semiprimes include the squares of prime numbers. Because there are infinitely many prime numbers, there are also infinitely many semiprimes. Semiprimes are also called biprimes.”

    The significance of the number 73 is discussed in Ezra’s bog post as a key number, since the first verse of the Torah has a total gematria of 2701, which is the sum of all the integers from ∑1 – 73. The number 73 is also a prime number, the 21st prime, and in reverse 73 becomes 37, also a prime, the 12th prime.

    Interestingly 219 is also the sum of the two differences mentioned above, 156 + 63 = 219, and thus the sum of all these three differences is 2 x 219 = 438, where 438 = 6 x 73.

    It is also interesting that the name Charvonah, gematria 271, is reminiscent of and seems to hint to the first verse of the Torah, which as was said has a total gematria of 2701, which again is the sum of all the integers from ∑1 – 73.

    Incidentally, 2701 is not a prime number, however with 1000 more, 3701, the gematria of the 42 letter Name Ana B’choach, is a prime, the 517th prime. Also backward 3701 becomes 1073, which is also the same as 1000 plus 73, and thus based on what was explained above this is also another hint to the first verse of the Torah.

    The gematria of Charvonah plus Eliyahu is 271 + 52 = 323, which although not a prime, is a semiprime, since it is the product of the two primes, 17 and 19, for 17 x 19 = 323, and as explained, both numbers 17 and 19 play a significant role in this discussion.

    The gematria of the names Eliyahu plus Pinchus is 52 + 208 = 260, which is 10 x 26, another level of completeness of the Divine Name Hashem gematria 26.

    The gematria of Pinchus plus Charvonah is 208 + 271 = 479, which is a prime number, the 92nd prime, and in reverse 92 becomes 29, also a prime, the 10th prime.

    Another interesting connection is that in the digits for the gematria of the name פינחס, Pinchus, gematria 208, and its alternate spelling without the letter Yud, פנחס, Pinchus, gematria 190, there are only the special numbers discussed above that are connected to the letters Beis, Ches, Tes, and Yud, 2, 8, 9, 1 and 0. The alternate spelling without the letter Yud, פנחס, Pinchus, gematria 190, also hints to these same digits since as explained above 2 + 8 + 9 = 19, and when multiplied by 10, then 10 x 19 = 190.

    ———-

    Interestingly the letters Ches and Tes, gematrias 8 and 9, can be combined to form the number 89, which is a prime number, the 14th prime.

    Further, the digits for the letters Beis, Ches, Tes, in order, gematrias 2, 8, 9, can be combined to form the number 289, and although the number 289 is not a prime, nevertheless it is still special, being a square semiprime, the product of a single prime squared, 17 x 17 = 289. With the addition of 1 more decimal place to represent the digit for the letter Yud, 1, the number 289 becomes the number 2891, which is the nonprime product of 7 x 7 x 59 = 2891. This is interesting because 59 is the 17th prime, and 17 is the 7th prime, and 7 being the 4th prime, and formula combines the 4 letters Beis Ches Tes and Yud.

    Placing the 1 for the Yud at the beginning of this number string gives the number 1289, which is prime, the 209th prime, and the number 209 is semiprime, the product of 11 x 19 = 209, and this also corresponds to the gematria of Pinchus, 208 + 1 for the Kolel = 209, and also to Pinchus in the alternative spelling, gematria 190, plus 1 more set of 19, 190 + 19 = 209. Similarly adding another decimal place to include 10 for the Yud at the beginning of the number string gives the number 10289, which is also prime, the 1262nd prime, and in reverse 1262 becomes 2621 which is also prime, the 381st prime.

    Looking forward to next week, with the election in Israel and the landing of the Israeli lander on the moon.

    That’s all for now, Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov!

    (To be continued בע”ה.)

  24. Shavuah Tov!

    Sorry, in rushing to upload my previous comment in time for Shabbos, I let slip in a couple of errors and again there is need for corrections.

    First, at the end of the second to the last section of my above comment I wrote:

    “Another interesting connection is that in the digits for the gematria of the name פינחס, Pinchus, gematria 208, and its alternate spelling without the letter Yud, פנחס, Pinchus, gematria 190, there are only the special numbers discussed above that are connected to the letters Beis, Ches, Tes, and Yud, 2, 8, 9, 1 and 0. The alternate spelling without the letter Yud, פנחס, Pinchus, gematria 190, also hints to these same digits since as explained above 2 + 8 + 9 = 19, and when multiplied by 10, then 10 x 19 = 190.”

    The obvious error is that פנחס, Pinchus, without the letter Yud, is not gematria 190, rather it is 198. Accordingly the first sentence of this paragraph can be fixed, however the last sentence is wrong as written (though perhaps the idea can be salvaged to some extent by adding another 8 for the Bris Milah on the 8th day, since “Pinchus is Eliyahu,” the “Angel of the Bris”).

    ———-

    Second, at the beginning of the last section I wrote:

    “Interestingly the letters Ches and Tes, gematrias 8 and 9, can be combined to form the number 89, which is a prime number, the 14th prime.”

    Correction: Instead of “14th prime,” this should have stated that 89 is the 24th prime.

    Here it can be pointed out that interestingly in reverse the number 24 is the number 42, and thus in this way the numbers 8 and 9 may be connected with the Divine Name of 42 letters.

    Interestingly, too, the numbers 8 and 9 are connected with the Divine Name of 72, since when multiplied together 8 x 9 = 72, and this is called to attention from Ezra’s newest excellent post “The Reality Behind the Universe,” which discusses the “72 Names (Triplets) matrix of 8 columns by 9 rows.”

    Also not mentioned in all my long comment above is that the simple addition of 8 + 9 = 17, with 17 being the 7th prime.

    ——-

    As of yet I have only briefly scanned Ezra’s other new post, “The 22 Letters; What’s in a Name?,” but I noticed that there he is spelling the 8th letter of the Alef Beis, the letter Ches, not as I have done חית, Ches Yud Sav, with gemtaria 418, but rather simply חת, Ches, without the letter Yud in the middle, with gematria 408.

    It appears that both spellings may be used (similar to the name Pinchus in my above comment, where the Torah uses both spellings, פינחס, with a letter Yud, and פנחס, without a letter Yud), however seemingly the more common spelling is as I wrote here, חית, Ches Yud Sav, gematria 418.

    May Hashem, and the readers, forgive these and any other inadvertent mistakes.

    Shalom!

  25. The 173 Keys
    Hi Moshe,

    “Mod 9” values for the 42 Letters in 7 Lines are:
    1 2 3 1 4 9 –>20
    1 2 7 3 9 5 –> 27
    5 3 4 1 2 3 –> 18
    2 9 2 9 4 3 –> 29
    8 1 2 9 5 7 –> 32
    1 3 3 8 7 1 –> 23
    3 1 6 9 1 4 –> 24

    And adding up the Line Values (“Mod 10″/Base 10 Arithmetic for this sum, as for the additions of the values above – i.e. Modulus 9 values, but the sums are generated as standard Base 10 additions)
    Sum ( 20 27 18 29 32 23 24 ) is 173

  26. Peter, thanks for your explanation, but I think you make it more confusing and seeming to make it sound like higher mathematics is required with “Mod 9” and the like.

    Actually now it appears quite simple, however it has to be made clear that there are at least two different 42 letter Names:

    There is a “lower” 42 Letter Name, which is identified with the 42 letters that are the initials of the Ana B’choach prayer, and using the small gematria of each letter, for which the numbers and the sums are as you wrote, the total is indeed 173.

    Then there is the “upper” 42 letter Name, the three-fold expansion of the Divine Name Hashem, first the basic letters of the Name, י-ה-ו-ה, and then with each letter spelled out, יוד הי ויו הי, and then again with each of those letters spelled out, יוד ויו דלת הי יוד ויו יוד ויו הי יוד, such that the total number of letters is 4 + 10 + 28 = 42.

    The confusion was that I was taking the small gematria of the letters of the “upper” 42 letter Name, and I was getting a total of 159, which is 14 less than 173.

    Upon reviewing the matter now I see that Ezra actually says this near the end of his book “The Divine Calendar.”

    Anyway, this matter still requires further elucidation… and thankfully more revelations appear to be on the way!

  27. Above I wrote:

    “As of yet I have only briefly scanned Ezra’s other new post, “The 22 Letters; What’s in a Name?,” but I noticed that there he is spelling the 8th letter of the Alef Beis, the letter Ches, not as I have done חית, Ches Yud Sav, with gemtaria 418, but rather simply חת, Ches, without the letter Yud in the middle, with gematria 408. ”

    I continued:

    “It appears that both spellings may be used (similar to the name Pinchus in my above comment, where the Torah uses both spellings, פינחס, with a letter Yud, and פנחס, without a letter Yud), however seemingly the more common spelling is as I wrote here, חית, Ches Yud Sav, gematria 418.”

    The post I referred to, “The 22 Letters; What’s in a Name?,” is actually from years ago, from December 2008. What is new is in the reply section (the only comment there), a pingback has been added the new post “The Reality Behind the Universe.”

    Anyway, upon further review, at the beginning of that older post, Ezra already discussed the different ways that certain letters of the Alef Beis may be spelled out as words, and this would apply for the different ways of spelling out the letter Ches:

    “Each letter has a unique energy value and thus unique numerical valuations of that energy depending on which cipher is being used to read them. And each letter has as a quasi-unique name. I say quasi, only because a few of them can be spelled different ways depending if the letter yud (Y) is included or not, and there no real right way to spell those letters because in different situations they are meant to be spelled different ways depending on whether the support of the yud, representative of the sefira of chochma, is needed.”

  28. Thanks Moshe. I’m going a mile a minutes these days trying to record all the new and much deeper incites in an orderly manner for everyone to grasp and I really appreciate all the effort you put in to back fill any information I skip over. It’s really important so that people can properly grasp the concepts, which can be tricky.
