It came to my attention this week that the giant Reflecting Pool that lies in the central axis between the Washington Monument and the Capital Building is **2300 x 150** feet. At first I dismissed it, even as they pointed out that **2300 x 150 = 345,000** sq ft and that **345 **is numerical value of Moses. But on further reflection, I realized that **2300 = 20 x 115** and as we’ve been discussing in the last few articles, the value **20** is synonymous with the highest, crowning *sefira *(dimension) of *Keter*, and **115 **is the number of jubilee years (Biblical **50**-year interval) from Adam to the prophecies of *Mashiach* (the Messiah) in our generation, specifically **5778** **(2018 CE)**.

Still, I didn’t consider it worth mentioning until I further realized that **2300 + 150 = 2450**, and by removing the kolel of **2**, we get **2448**, as in the year of the exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in **2448 HC**. Moreover, both **2448** and **2450 **equal **49** jubilee years, which we know from the sages correspond with the **49** gates of negativity that the Israelites were at before they crossed the Red (Reed) Sea.

Now, the Torah commands us emphatically to count jubilee years and this connection between the measurements of the Reflection Pool and to both times that the window to the Tree-of-Life reality is said to have opened and is predicted to open again is a little suspicious. Even more so, when we consider that there are exactly **66.6** jubilee years between those **2** dates and that the Washington Monument is **6660** inches tall.

Nevertheless, I held off writing about this until in a dream last night I saw in a straight line, just as it’s actually laid out, the **541 **room Capital Building, the Washington Monument (the giant Egyptian Obelisk) and the 2300 foot long Reflecting Pool just beyond it. It dawned on me then that the US Capital was purposefully designed to reflect these aspects of the Exodus from Egypt across the red sea in **2448 HC,** to the Promised Land, Israel, whose numerical value is **541**, and who is symbolically represented by the Star of David (*Magen David*), a symmetrical 12-gonal star that is mathematical comprised of **541** points.

But Why?
