Every Year has Meaning; This Year, 5774, is Especially Telling.

Do you feel time speeding up, your 7 day weekly cycles getting shorter with more pressure to get things done and less time to do it in? Do you feel the spiritual presence, both good and evil, in our world as never before in our lifetime, as if the distance between heaven and earth were collapsing.  In the beginning G-d created Heaven and Earth and the 70 dimensions (levels) or sefirot that separated them. He also created a time-frame for them to be reunited, giving us a limited time to do our work here, and a clock (calendar) for us to use so we’d know how much time we have left. That clock began with Adam and year 1.

It’s now reached 5774 and the Earth has spun around the Sun 5774 times since then.  In 4 Earth with Sunmore years, Earth will have circled the Sun 4 more times, making the number of revolutions 5778, equal to the surface temperature of the Sun, 5778K .

This year, 2013/4 corresponds to the Hebrew calendar year  5774 (Taf-Shin-Ayin-Dalet) and its Hebrew name is especially telling, as is its significance 4 years before 5778Taf-Shin is the 700 in 5774, so we’ll concentrate on the final two digits, the number/year, 74, which in Hebrew is Ayin-Dalet, or AD, which spells the Hebrew word for  “until,” or “ever (as in forever)” and alternatively, “witness.”

The two letters Ayin-Dalet are integrally related and paired energetically to open gateways, and wherever the word AD appears in the Torah it’s connected to the final redemption, as will be explained shortly.

First off, AYN DLT spelled out literally means “to see the door” or “70th door” or even 70 doors”, which, as has been foretold, will open 70 years after Israel became a Nation, hence 70 years after 1948, which is 2018 (5778 HC). Thus in 4 (D) years from now (5774 HC) the 70th (A) year will be in 5778.

Seventy (70) is no random number; kabbalistically, it represents the expansion of the 10 sub-sefirot through the heavenly ladder from Malchut (our physical world) up to the upper reaches of the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin, making 7 x 10 or 70 in total.  Congruent with these sefirot are what the Zohar and the sages call the 70 faces (levels of understanding) of the Torah, the 70 languages of the world, the 70 Nations of the world under the 70 ministering angels of the upper worlds.

There are two time periods in the Torah Together that utilized repeatedly, 40 years, tree of life 11 Engrepresenting maturation, and 70 years, representing completion.  To understand this the 40 year span represents a climb upward through the 4 bottommost sefirot, until the more mature triad of Chesed-Gevurah-Tiferet is reached and our evil inclination or selfish desires can be overcome. 70 years represents the further climb upward through the expanded and purer consciousness of Chesed-Gevurah-Tiferet until we reach the spiritual realm of Da’at (DAT) and the uppermost triad, above the bridge of Heaven and earth.

So it’s by no coincidence that the Bible repeatedly utilizes specific periods (time-frames) of 70 years, or that the letters/numbers Ayn and Dalet are integrally connected to one another and these time periods. Their simple gematria, that of AYN DLT spelled out, is 1214. Rav Abulafia of blessed memory, one of the greatest kabbalists of all time, known for his deep understanding of the secrets revealed by the gematria of the Hebrew letters, explained that the 1214 we see here represents the numerical value of “70 languages” in Hebrew, and more relevantly,  it’s the numerical value of”permutation of the letters.”

While this is a great hint of what’s behind the energy of the AYN DLT that’s being injected into our world this year, a more subtler clue is found in the  ordinal (place-value within the Hebrew alphabet) values of the letters in AYN DLT spelled out, which total 78, as in 5778, and as Rav Brandwein, of blessed memory pointed out, the initials of Atz Chaim (ACh,78), the Tree-of-life, which we have the opportunity to return to in 5778. Meanwhile, 5778/74 = 78.0…

4 years before 5778, we have the clue of “70 languages” and “permutation of the tower of babelletters,” leading us to the belief that through the reunification of the 70 languages , which were scattered following the Tower of Babel incident, we’ll be able to permute the letters to hasten the linkages between Heaven and Earth. It’s also telling us that in this 1st of the 4 final years, the process has begun, which is why, words spoken in English and innumerable other languages suddenly have immediate repercussions and can palpably shift reality, when before it was only through Hebrew and certain individuals.

70 Years

starry skyAs detailed in The Divine Calendar, the period of 70 years is extremely significant in The Divine CalendarBiblical and historic terms with the Hebrew and Western Calendars reflecting back on one another to set a unique time frame from Adam to the prophesied final redemption (geula) and Moshiach (Messiah) in the year 5778 (2018 CE).  Considering that Ayin is 70 and Dalet is 4 it’s notable that there are 4 such 70 years periods.  The first being the 70 years of Abraham’s life from 1948-2018 HC until he received the Covenant of Halves from G-d and was shown a future time when his descendants would be as numerous as the stars.

To understand the depth of the second period, we must first look to the Torah’s first 4 letters, BRESh.  When we subtract their value from that of the Torah’s first verse, whose value is 2701 (the sum of all the integers from 1-73), we’re left with 2198. Oddly enough, there are 2198 letters Zayin in the Torah, each of numerical value 7; moreover, Joseph was born in the year 2198.  He was 40 when his family joined him in Egypt and they lived together 70 years beginning in 2238–the periods of maturation and completion.  During this period the Israelites thrived and multiplied, coddled and incubated in Goshen, just as G-d promised Abraham. It was only after Joseph’s passing that things grew difficult for the Israelites in Egypt. Interestingly, Abraham was born exactly halfway between the date of the Flood in 1658 and when Joseph’s 70 year period began in 2238.

The third period is the 70 years of exile in Babylon, the time between the fall of the First first holy templeHoly Temple in 3338 and the building of the Second Holy Temple in 3408. The year 3338 is also -422 BCE, with 422 being the numerical value of the Hebrew word for seventy (70).

That takes us to the final 70 year period, the one that began with the formation of Israel in 1948 CE and will end with the fulfillment of the Covenant of Halves in 2018 CE, just like it was given to Abraham in 2018 HC, who was born in 1948 HC.

 1948 , 2238 , 3338 , 5708

There are other significant 70 year Biblical periods of course, such as the 70 years of King David’s lifespan given to him by Adam, the midpoint of which (2889 HC) is also the midpoint from Adam (0) to Moshiach in 5778 HC, hence the name Adam (EDM): Edam-David-Moshiach.

The Hebrew word for “in 70 years,” has a gematria value of 424, that of Moshiach Ben David, so when we say 70 represents a completion, we’re speaking about a completion of out Tikkun.

So how do we know that these 4 specific periods are connected or are the right 4 to connect, besides that they all end in 8, like most of the significant Biblical dates in The Divine Calendar?

 1948 , 2238 , 3338 , 5708

If we add the 16 digits in all four dates they sum up to 74 (AD) even more indicative considering 16 is the ordinal value of the letter Ayn(A).

Furthermore, considering that the 4 years that initial the 4 periods of 70 years sum to 1948 + 2238 + 3338 + 5708 = 13232, it may be just a series of coincidences that 13 is ahava (love)–itself directly connected with 5778–and that the sum of the values of the 4 aspects (levels) of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) is 232 while uranium 232 has a half-life or 70.0 years.

 1948 , 2238 , 3338 , 5708

You wouldn’t realize it right away unless you read  The Divine Calendar , but 1948 HC is 3830 years before 5778 and 3830 HC was the year the Second Holy Temple was destroyed, which in the Western calendar was 70 CE, or as it was referred to for many years 70 AD.

So, where, besides the Zohar and revelations of the tzaddikim, is it foretold that the final period will be 70 years from the formation of Israel?

In Kabbalah and Biblical studies a year, month, week and even day are often the same thing, interchangeable, a complete cycle of time and space, so when Daniel and the prophets refer to weeks they usually mean years.

Daniel 24: “Seventy weeks are decreed upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sin, and to forgive iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal vision and prophet, and to anoint the most holy place.”

Daniel 25: “Know therefore and discern, that from the going forth of the word to restore and to build Jerusalem unto one anointed, a prince, shall be seven weeks…”

To be continued…

There is so much more that is critical to be revealed about this year, 5774, that we decided to break it up into several shorter articles. In the end it will be clear why the final 4 years are separate amongst the final 70 and why we must all take heed.

What Can We Expect in 5778? Is there a Tree in Israel?

sin_mtsin_dawnRav Brandwein taught me that the final letters in a phrase speak to the future. We know from Rav Ashlag, his teacher, the date 5778, so what is the future spelled out by its final letters? Is it  the end of days?  Well, thankfully, while some see it as an end, it is also a new beginning, a new dawn.

The Hebrew calendar date 5778 (2018 CE) is written out in Hebrew: HShin-Tav  Ayin  Chet, whose initials add up to 5-7-7-8.

The final letters on the other hand, HY ShYN TV AYN ChYT add up to 1+50+6+50+400 = 516.  This is very significant and encouraging to all those wondering about what will occur in these supposed end times.

Before we explain way 516 is such a good message for us, let us note that in small gematria, the date itself has spelled out 1565  + 4 and while 4 is usually indicative of the 4 letters of the YHVH, the ineffable Name of G-d, 1565 is the YHVH in small gematria.

So we know that G-d is the outcome, if we didn’t know that already.

Before we get to 516, I’d like to note that the central letters, the ones not used to spell out either 5778 0r the YHVH and 516, are HY ShYN TV AYN ChYT or YYY, which is the 22nd of the 72 Names of G-d, which falls at the 6th column and 3rd row of the 72 Name Matrix.

And if you don’t think that’s really relevant, please note that there are only two place within the 72 Name Matrix that there are consecutive triple crown tagin above the letters: at column 5, row 7 and at column 7, row 8. Coincidence, really?

So why is 516 so important? Because Moses knew that if he prayed 516 times to enter the promise land, G-d would have relented and time would have ended right then in the glory of Moshiach consciousnesses. Yet, G-d stopped him at 515; it wasn’t time.  What the final letters are telling us about the future is that 5778 is the time, the time that Moses will be allowed to make the final 516th prayer on our behalf.

But wait, there’s more.  The YYY stands for many things, including the powerful and complete inter-collusion of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) within the 10 sefirot within the 10 sefirot or 10 x 10 x 10 which is 1000, as in the 1000 years of Moshiach that will come before we ascend to an even higher level.

The 10 sefirot comprise the Tree-of-life, a consciousness of oneness and unity, and while tree10the initial letters of the spelled out date 5778 (HY ShYN TV AYN ChYT) are considered Kabbalistically masculine and spell out 5778, the filling letters HY ShYN TV AYN ChYT are considered feminine and equal 516 (final letters) + 30 (central YYY) or 546, which is the sum of the initials of the names of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life, and also of the numerical value of the word Israel, including its kolel. This is why the spelling out is very important, for it reveals to us the unified masculine and feminine aspects, and as the Zohar tells us: In the time of Moshiach these aspects will be equal, represented by the Sun and the Moon respectively. Remember, the surface temperature of the Sun, like the masculine aspect of the spelled out date, is 5778 degrees Kelvin.

This goes hand in hand with what Rav Brandwein, of blessed memory, explained was the significance of the 78 in 5778, that the 70 and 8 represented the Tree-of-life, AZ ChYYM (Ayn = 70 and Ch = 8 in gematria) that we will connect to in 5778.

So the answer to Moses question, “Is there a tree in Israel” is Yes, or at least there will be in 5778: the Tree-of-life. B’H

Rav Ashlag and the 13 Leaps of Love.

By now, most of you know of the prophetic Hebrew calendar date for Moshiach (the rav ashlagMessiah) and as some say the end times or the end of days,  5778, and how Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag revealed it to me through my teacher and how much more it connects to And more recently, we’ve revealed the connection between the 13 measures of 444 years and the year 5778.

I recently returned from Israeli and it was while visiting HaRav Ashlag (HaSulam) that the significance of the 444-year span came into sharper focus.  I had been contemplating the connection between the 13 measures of 444 and 2nd plague, blue frogtzfardea (frogs) of numerical value 444, and I came to the obvious and not so profound link that frogs leap and that the 13 spans of time are like 13 leaps of love (ahava, numerical value 13). As previously revealed, 444 is the numerical value of “from generation to generation (L’dor V’dor) and I knew there had to be a special reason that the only 10-letter word (an obvious connection to the 10 sefirot) in the Torah is found in the reading about the frogs.

Yet it was during the brief time I had with Rav Ashlag that he suggested I divide 444 by 22, as in the 22 Hebrew letters, in order to understand the significance of 444.  Any connection to the 22 Hebrew letters would bring this number, 444, back to its root energy and deconstruct it to, as Abraham Avinu put it in his Sefer Yetzizah, the 22 building blocks of the universe.

So it was beautifully enlightening that the beloved tzaddik of blessed memory who revealed to us the year 5778 for Moshiach and the final redemption (geula) also revealed that the essence of the 13 measures of love, of G-d’s 13 attributes is 444/22 =  20.18, as in the Western calendar year 2018 CE, which just happens to be the Hebrew calendar year 5778.

It also harks back to G-d’s Covenent with Abraham in 2018 in the Hebrew Calender, but that’s not coincidental. It would also mean that G-d made his Covenant with Abraham exactly 100 blocks (100 x 20.18) from the time time began.

Yet another reminder that G-d’s hand is in everything and that there are scant few years left for us to make the leap and find that unconditional love within us.

As Rav Ashlag himself pointed out, there the last leap, of 444 years would take us from the death of the Arizal until Moshiach. We can now see that the final (22nd) block of that final time span is 20.18 years, which begin in 1998.  It is also the last of the 100 blocks of time from the year the Western calendar began in 3760 HC (0 CE).

In between the two sets of 100 blocks, the first when G-d made his Covenant and the last when he will fulfill it are the 86 Blocks of Elohim (numerical value 86).


The Alpha and the Omega Come Together in a Revelation.

There is always a beginning and an end. Well, not really, all time is infinite, but it can be segmented into discreet bundles.  Moreover, there is one time segment in particular that the Torah, modern mathematics, ancient philosophy, and Biblical history all converge to make extra special.

We turn to the Hebrew alphabet and the Torah’s first verse for our first clues. The Greek alpha comes from the Hebrew Alef (E) and the Greek omega comes from the Hebrew letter Tav (T) so it’s fitting that the complete gematria of the letter Tav is 400 plus its ordinal value amongst the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, which is 22, thus together 422.  And 422 is the gematria (numerical value) of the Hebrew word ShBAYM “seventy (70).”

The beginning and the end come together in the number 70.

As explained in The Divine Calendar the discreet bundle of 70 years is repeated over The Divine Calendarand over again in terms of Biblical history and divine consciousness, whether it’s the 70 years that Adam gave up for King David’s life (70 years), or the age G-d made his Covenant with Abraham (70), or the period of the Babylonian exile (70 years) between the Temples, or the year the 2nd Temple was destroyed (70 CE), 70 marks very crucial periods in our existence.

Thus it should not be such a shock that the First Temple too, which was destroyed in 3338 HC, corresponds to the year -422 BCE in the reflected Western one, or as we just learned 70 (seventy) in gematria. Also as just mentioned, the Second Temple was built 70 years later and then destroyed in 70 CE.

David lived 70 years and enabled his son, young King Solomon, to build the First Temple shortly afterward; The First Temple was destroyed in the year equivalent to 70;  The Second Temple was built 70 years later at the end of the 70 years of exile; the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE.

Kabbalistically, 70 is crucial because is represents the full development of the 7 sefirot (dimensions) with their 10 sub-sefirot each that are designed to be bundled together as a bridge between the upper (heaven) worlds and our.

Yet, as explained in The Genesis Prayer it is mathematics that bundles the 70 years tree10together in indelible ways. First of all, the sum of the logarithms from 1 to 70 is exactly 100.0, representing the fullest spread (103) of the 10 sefirot from the beginning all the way to the end.  This mimics the spread of Judaism from Abraham (1) to the 70 Israelites who entered Egypt in 3 generations. The 3 always represents the 3-column system of the Tree-of-life, energetically aligned with the 3 Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Moreover, the Natural Log of 70 is 4.248, the same 4248 as the sum of all the  spelled out names of all 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, 4248. That’s all of them, from the beginning to the end.

Perhaps, this has to do with why the Zohar talks so extensively about the 70 Nations and G-d told Moses to create a Sanhedrin of 70 Elders, and the sages tell us their are 70 faces of the Torah.

To understand this deeper, let’s go back to the two letters Alef and Tav, ET, that comprise the 4th word in the Torah’s first verse adn who represent the coming together of the alpha and the omega. If Tav represents the end of the 70 year period through its complete gematria of 422, Alef represents the beginning, with its numerical value of 1 and its ordinal value also of 1, together making 2, as in the first letter of the Torah, the Bet(B) of Bereshit (“In the beginning”)–once again from Beginning to End.

Thus the word (article) ET, the 4th word in the Torah has a complete gematria of 424, which just happens to be that of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

“ET go home”

This is the concealed essence to which the 70 year periods of time are attached: the energy and consciousness of Moshiach.  When that energy was wasted (squandered), we received destruction; when it was nurtured we received G-d’s Revelations.

Now, the 6th word in the Torah, V’ET, has the letter Vav (V) added of numerical value 6, representing the ladder from the upper worlds (heaven) to ours.  All together V’ET has a numerical value of 407, whose square root is 20.17424 or numero-graphically the year 2017 CE (5778 HC) and 424, Moshiach Ben David. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that 5778 is the year prophesied by Rav Ashlag, etc for the arrival of Moshiach and the final redemption (geula)? We’ll see…

We’ve seen how the first two Temples were connected to the 70 year time frame, but as explained in the  The Divine Calendar,  The Final Temple, B’H will be available to us 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948, (5778 HC, 2018 CE), which is also 1948 after the Second Temple was destroyed, which corresponds to Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC, and G-d’s Covenant with Abraham in 2018 CE.

Now if you recall, during the 3 x 70 years of the Egyptian exile we went from 70 Israelites who entered Egypt to 600,000 who exited .

And as it just so happens the logarithm for 600,000 as in the 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai and the 600,000 component letters in the Torah, is 5.778

By the mathematical definition of logarithms this means that 10 raised to power of 5.778 is 600,000, so that there were 105.778 Israelites at Sinai when the Torah of 105.778 component letters was given. Hmm!

The 10 sefirot raised to the power of 5.778. It would appear that 5778 is some special limit. Just as 5778 K is the surface temperature of the sun, just the right temperature for life to flourish on Earth.

Given this new beginning from 70 to 105.778 it’s fitting that the prophecies say that 66.6 jubilee years later, G-d’s Covenant with Abraham should be fulfilled on the same date it was given in the reflective calendar (2018 CE, which is 5778 HC), and that this falls at the end of the final 70 year period.  In other words in 5778 the 70 sub-dimensions of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) should be sufficiently rectified to bring us Moshiach. B’H

There is a Beginning and there is an End.  When this 70 year period closes in 5 years, will we be able to say the energy of Moshiach was squandered or nurtured?

It seems we still have a choice.


Just remember, the gematria of the number 70 (ShBAYM) is 422, the same as Arik Anpin, “the vast countenance of G-d
