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

Lag B’Omer is Available Every Day.

The energy of Lag B’Omer is available to us every day and always has been. It was imbedded into G-d first gift to us, long before Rabbi Shimon wrote the Zohar.  Before Creation there was the 42-Letter Name of G-d.  It’s designed at a 6 x 7 Matrix.


If you look at the 2nd to bottom line, the line associated with the sefira of yesod, you’ll see the letters of the Hebrew word Lag (LG), as in Lag B’omer, the 33rd (LG) day of the counting of the Omer and the death anniversary of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar.

If you then look at the letter in front of the letters LG you see a letter Yud (Y) and beneath it the letter Shin (Sh). Together their gematria is 310, the same as that of the word Omer (AMR).

The gematria of the entire bottom line (ShKVZYT) plus the Yud above it is 916, the same as R’ Shimon Bar Yochai with the kolel of 1.

And the initials of the last four lines (B, Sh, Y, Ch) can easily be seen as Shimon Bar Yochai.

Moreover lag b’omer, the 33rd day of the omer always falls on the 18th of the month of Iyar as in the Yud-Chet (YCh) or 18, found as the first letters in the 2nd and 3rd to last lines of the matrix, adjacent to the word Lag (LG).

In His infinite wisdom, G-d gave us Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and He also gave us a way to access his energy whenever we need it, hidden in plain sight in the 42-Letter Name matrix derived from the Torah’s very first verse–the very first Torah Code.
