The British Played a Critical Role.

Most readers of our articles are aware of the reflected or mirrored nature of the Hebrew and Western calendars and the simple Divine Calendar that exists from Adam until the arrival of Moshiach (the Messiah) in 5778 (2018 CE).  And while Abraham was born in 1948 HC and Israel became a nation in 1948 CE, and 70 years later G-d made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham in 2018 HC and it is in 2018 CE (5778 HC) that it has been prophesied by the tzaddikim to be fulfilled, there is the role of the British that we never discussed.  Compared to the Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Ottomans, the time frame that Great Britain ruled over the Holy Land was miniscule, only 30 years, the time period not coincidentally between the end of the 2 World Wars. The British Mandate for Palestine began when the British defeated Ottoman Turkish forces in 1917, which was made official on October 30th, 1918 and ended 30 years later at midnight on May 14th, 1948, when Israel became a nation, which means the British wrestled control of the Holy Lands out of Ottoman hands exactly 100 years before the date given for the fulfillment of G-d’s Covenant with the Jews in 2018 CE. One Hundred (100) in kabbalah is universally known as a state of Keter (crown) and represents the full strength of the 10 sefirot (dimensions). The 10 sefirot that comprise the Tree-of-life are always broken down into the 3 conjoined upper ones and 7 bundled lower ones, or 30 + 70 = 100. This relatively tiny 30-year period encompassed the both World...

The Covenant of Halves and the Counting of the Omer.

The year was 2018 HC, seventy (70) years after Abraham was born in 1948 HC, G-d had Abraham gaze up into the stars and He made the Covenant of Halves with him, in which He promised to make Abraham’s descendants more numerous than the stars and to give them the 10 lands between the two rivers, the Great Egyptian and the Euphrates. Flash forward 3760 years to 2018 CE, 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 CE. The Hebrew Calendar year is now 5778 HC, the year prophesied by the Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim for the arrival of Moshiach consciousness (the Messiah) and the geula (final redemption). The Divine Calendar has mirrored itself, folding in the middle, and the Covenant is about to be fulfilled. According to the Zohar, the 70 year final waiting period corresponds to the birth pangs of Moshiach, and as it just so happens the phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” occurs 42 times in the Torah, as in the 42 journeys the Israelites made in order to reach the promised land the first time around. Now, everyone who has studied the slightest bit of Kabbalah knows the power of the 42–Letter Name of G-d (the Ana B’koach) and that every time the number 42 occurs it’s a direct connection to that Name in order to support us. Moreover, according to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory in his paraphrasing of the Baal Shem Tov and other tzaddikim over the generations, “the understanding of the 42-Letter Name will bring about the geula (final redemption).” Another painful waiting period was the “40 days...

Top of the Columns.

The Torah consists of 248 columns and 42 rows, a matrix that goes beyond and letters and even the space between them. And most of those columns, 242 of them to be precise, begin with the letter Vav, itself shaped like a column and likewise designed to help us channel the light downward through the 6 bundled dimensions of Zeir Anpin. The other 6 letters that head up their 6 columns help us to channel, H’Moshiach (the Messiah). They begin with the Bet (B) in Bereshit, the very first word in the Torah. The number 248 is the numerical value for word womb and for mercy and the 42, always refers to the 42-Letter Name of G-d. Starting with the very first letter and column in the Torah is the letter Bet (B), the Yud (Y) –Hei (H) of the ineffable Name of G-d (YHVH), and the Shin (Sh), Mem (M) and the special Vav (V) of the word Shemo (His Name). Altogether B’YH ShMV, “in the YH, His Name.” Not coincidentally, the numerical value of these 6 letters is 363, that of H’Moshiach, (the Messiah). These  letters can also be permuted to spell out  ShMB YHV, or the Shem Mem-Bet and the YHV of the YHVH. The Shem Mem-Bet is the 42-Letter Name of G-d, that according to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory will help bring us Moshiach and the Geula (the final redemption). Seeing as there is a connection to the Mem-Bet, it behooves us to see what the albam (ELBM) cipher of these 6 letters is, and using it they permute to ShMA B’PY (Shema BPay) or...

Love from Generation to Generation.

I can’t believe I missed this, but they say everything in its proper time.  Every time I see and recite the phrase L’dor V’dor (from generation to generation) in our prayer books I ask myself what is the hidden secret? The LV (36) initials were always an obvious allusion to the LV (36) tzaddikim that constantly sustain the world and generation to generation had to refer to the time of Moshiach (the Messiah), but how? Then just twelve hours after publishing the article about the measure of love, it hit me: L’dor V’dor is also 444. It too is the measure of G-d’s love, a love lasting from generation to generation from the first to the last, like the love of the tzaddikim. The phrase L’dor V’dor is from he 13th verse in Psalms 135, and once again Ahava (love), which has a numerical value 13, is connected with 444 and represents an expanse of time that brings us to our generation. It is in the same way that the 13th word of the 13 attributes connected us there with the word l’Elephim representing 2000 generations. As far the sefirot of the tree-of-life are concerned, when we drawn down the light of love from above through the 7 dimensions of Zeir Anpin to Malchut and then actively return them (Or Chazer, returning light) back up the 6 levels of Zeir Anpin, we have the 13 rungs of the ladder.  To ascend and complete the process we need to share the love just as it was shared with us from on high, unconditionally. Another hint is found in Psalms 116, where...
