G-d’s Hands are Reaching Out to Us

The two (2) calendars are superimposed, the Western and the Hebrew. One began in the year 0 with Adam and has lasted 5778 years to date. The other began 3760 years after the start of the first one, 2018 years ago.  First Holy Temple was destroyed 422 years, which is the gematria of the number “70,” before the 2 nd calendar began. Then 70 years after the 2 nd calendar began, the Second Holy Temple was destroyed, 70 CE. Now 1948 years later, we find ourselves at the end of the 70-year period since Israel became a nation in 1948.  Abraham, the first of the Patriarch was born in 1948 HC. Seventy (70) years later G-d made a Covenant with him and called it the Covenant of Halves. The Calendars are folding in on themselves. Time is collapsing. Zeir Anpin is collapsing with it, focusing to point.

Genesis 1:1  “In the beginning God created heaven and earth.”

Genesis 1:4 “…God divided between the light and darkness.”

Genesis 1:6 “God said, ‘There shall be a sky [expanse, firmament, Heaven] in the middle of the water, and it shall divide between water and water’.”

Before we can get to that point of collapse we need to understand better how our greater universe is structured. The Zohar juxtaposes the 12 directions (branches) of Zeir Anpin with the 2 seas: the Sea of Binah and the Sea of Malhut. As we have explained previously, the 12 directions (branches) represent the restrictive cubic structure with the 12 edges boxing in the 6 sides. The Zohar further tells us that the 12 edges are analogous to the 12 tribes of Israel and to the 12 sons of Jacob, who came from 4 mothers (sides and/or vertical edges of the cube).  The 3 Patriarchs representing the 3 columns spreading out at right angles to form the full 12 boundaries of the cube (4 x 3). Spiritually, the 12 edges of the cubes, like the metaphor of the 12 sons, are the channels of light that draw from the upper see to the lower one. As we have said previously the 12 edges, 6 sides and 8 vertices (points) of the cube sum to 26, the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) that is G-d’s Name in the state of Zeir Anpin.

The sea spreads out evenly in all directions and is presented by a spherical shape, equidistant from its center at all points. The sea is endless, but when stopped in freeze-frame at any moment in its even expansion it would be a sphere, like the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon.  For simplicity, we will think of this juxtaposition as a circle and a square, which are slices of those spheres and cubes. The square is Zeir Anpin, the channel between the circles, the sky from Genesis 1:6. There is a circle inscribed in the square; it is Malchut, our physical world, cased in by Zeir Anpin.  There is a circle that circumscribes the square and encases it; it is Binah. An Inner circle and an outer one.  These are the wheels you read about in the Zohar. These are the seas you read about in the Zohar.

Ecclesiastes 1:7
כָּלהַנְּחָלִים הֹלְכִים אֶלהַיָּם, וְהַיָּם אֵינֶנּוּ מָלֵא; אֶלמְקוֹם, שֶׁהַנְּחָלִים הֹלְכִיםשָׁם הֵם שָׁבִים, לָלָכֶת”
“All the rivers flow into the sea, Yet the sea is not full. To the place where the rivers flow, There they flow again.”

Zeir Anpin are the rivers that channel the light from the upper endless sea of Light, Binah. The four (4) rivers of Genesis 2:10. Malchut is the sea that cannot be filled.  Malchut is a dark endless with no light of its own. Once it is cut off from the light it will be pitch black. Our spiritual selves live in Zeir Anpin; our physical selves are ensconced in Malchut.  What we think and imagine as light in the world in which we live is just a reflection from Binah above. It is an illusion, a cheap trick to keep us trapped down here.  Whatever gives us what we think is light down here is the antithesis of light; it draws us deeper into the darkness. The stronger the sensation of light, like being high, the further from the actual light we are being led. The cruel trick is that the reflection is on the bottom of sea not its surface, so the closer to the false light we swim, the deeper into the abyss we are diving.  That is the reality behind addictions, all of them. And addictions are just a modern term for idol worshiping, which is even a crueler trick because almost no one today thinks they are worshiping idols-most would tell you that is barbaric.

To understand how to escape the lower sea before the collapse is complete, we must first understand how it is all structured. Only then will we be able to see through the illusions.

To geometry, this relationship between the spheres and cubes or circles and squares is basic, and while it may look fancy if we spell it all out, it is very basic math. What is math anyway? It is just a way to describe relationships between different objects using a common universal language. So let us skip the math and examine the relationship.  Skipping the part about the ratio of the circumference of the inscribed circle to the circumscribed circle being (1-1/√2) and jumping ahead to where it works out to .2928, we learn that 2928 HC is the year that the First Holy Temple was constructed. Doing the same with the ratio of the outer circle’s circumference to the inscribed square’s perimeter, the resultant Pi/2 is 1.5708, which gives us 5708 HC, the year Israel became a nation. This is also 2780 years after the construction of the First Holy Temple. Those 2780 years are 10 times the numerical value of Ohr HaGanuz, the concealed light of Moshiach.

And again skipping the math in the ratio of the area of the circumscribed (outer circle) to the square within gives us 1.111, which we know is representative of the primordial Aleph (א) that is Binah. Then as mentioned in our article on the Solar System, the square drawn around the inscribed circle that it bounds is 1.273 or 27.3% larger, representative of the ratio of Zeir Anpin to the bounded Malchut. This partially explains why within that strict confined structure, the Moon rotates in 27.3 days and revolves around the Earth in 27.3 days, in sync with the dark sunspots that rotate around the Sun also every 27.3 days.  The design of Zeir Anpin is to keep the darkness of Malchut from infecting the upper worlds and to inject as much order as possible into that swirling chaos, hence the strict marching orders of the planets, timed to one-half of the numerical value of the Tree-of-Life and of Israel, 546/2 = 273.

To see the two (2) Hands of G-d in all this, each with 14 finger segments, we need only look past the square Zeir Anpin and look to the ratio of the two seas to one another, Binah to Malchut. Given what we just described, the ratio of the Outer circle to the Inner one is 1.111 x 1.273,or 1.414214, which is the square root of 2. The √2, or essence of 2, decodes as 1.414214 = 14 (יד) and 14 (יד), followed by 2 (יד), or even ruach, the spirit of G-d of numerical value 214. Since Yad (יד) is Hand, we can see the 2 Hands of G-d within the square root of two (2), a very unique number, and one at the core of all our geometry.

The Covenant of Halves

The name David (דוד) also has the numerical value of 14.  Moreover, the ratio of the Inner circle to the Outer one is .707107, giving us the 70 years of David’s lifespan and of the nation of Israel in this transformational year, 5778 (2018 CE). Before we examine this closer, we should note that the .707107 Inner to Outer circle ratio is one-half of the √2 and that it also gave us the equation (1 -.707107) = .2928, the Year that King David’s plans for the First Holy Temple were realized (2928 HC) by his son, 4 years after his death.  The square root of 2 is unique in that half (√2/2) of it, (.707107), is equal to the inverse (1/√2) of it, (.707107).  Therefore, half of those two (2) hands (1.414214), in other words .707107, breaks down numerically to 70 years, the 7th prophesied Shabbat millennium, and 107, whose sum of its 107 integers (∑ 1 -107 ) equals 5778, the year Israel completes its first 70 years.

The splitting of the square root of 2 in half is not only mathematically unique, but special in its relationship to King David in that the midpoint—the splitting in 2—of his 70-year life span marks the midpoint, 2889 HC, in the 5778 years to Moshiach and freedom.  It is no coincidence that G-d made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham in the year 2018 HC, the analog to 2018 CE (5778 HC).

The Zohar tells us the four (4) walls of the square are akin to the four (4) exiles. When Joseph entered Egypt the 210 years of Egyptian exile began, 3 The Divine Calendarperiods of 70 years each. Not coincidentally, there are 4 portions about Joseph in the Torah, who was born in the year 2198 HC, and lived in Egypt for 70 years of those 210.  Those 70 years were blessings and protection to Israel, even as they lived within the darkness of exile.  Those 70 years of blessings extend forward in time to today’s 70 years of Israel, for Joseph was born exactly 3580 years before the year 5778, or 10 times 358, the numerical value of Mashiach. Joseph’s birth in 2198 HC was also 1562 years before the Gregorian Calendar began, and 156 is the numerical value of Joseph.  The 2 Calendars are converging this year. 5778 years of history did not happen in vain.

How long was the Babylonian exile before the Second Holy Temple was built? 70 years. The Gregorian calendar began with a 70-year period that marked the end of the Second Holy Temple.  It is ending with another 70-year period clearly marked by the birth of Israel. It is time for us to break out and reach Binah, the World to Come. It is time to break out of the self-defined confines of the 4th exile. It is the illusion that we keep feeding ourselves that forms the walls of this prison. Zeir Anpin is made of light; we must look up towards it, not to its reflection in the bottom of the abyss.

The Israelites are Zeir Anpin, the 12 sons of Jacob are the structured boundary walls ruled by the 3-column system. The Inner Circle referenced above is Malchut, the darkness drawing its light from the bounded edges, the 4 rivers. The Outer Circle is Binah, the true light that beckons us to break free. As explained above, the two Hands of G-d are reaching down to us through the design of that structure.  They are built into it as our way out.

This year, the boundaries of our self-imposed prison will be shaken severely. They will be shaken loose for our sake.  The Zohar explains that that is exactly what happened to end the 210-year exile in Egypt. It took the Hands of G-d to shake free and wake up the Israelites then, which is why the initials of the 10 plagues add up to the numerical value of Israel.  Then once the boundaries are broken, the choice is ours; The Outer or the Inner Circle; the Darkness or the Light.

We live in a universe of positive and negative, spiritual and physical. Black and white fire, as the Hebrew letters of the Torah and the space they occupy are called. Like two pieces of a puzzle fitting together, 5778 and 4222 slide in together to form 10000, or 10 to the power of 4, the 4th or Binah dimension. As we explained above, numerically 4222 is 422 and 2, or the numerical value of 70 and the 2 dates of the destruction of both Holy Temples.

5778

4222

10000

 

The numerical values for “70″ and for “Joseph” respectively, 422 and 156 equal 578.  Of the 91 sets of oddly doubled words in the Torah, the set of doubled words meaning to tear away (טרף and טרף) was used twice, once when the brothers inferred to Jacob that Joseph was dead and again when he was found to be alive.  Each set has the numerical value 578. Each set also has the sofit gematria value of 2018. This year Joseph is alive for us.  Joseph was never dead; it was an illusion. This is the year we tear away the illusions.

The Temples were the physical manifestation of Zeir Anpin on Earth, open channels to Binah and beyond.  When the weight of the encroaching darkness of Malchut became too much they collapsed to seal off and protect the upper worlds.  If the darkness was feeding off the light, having none of its own, why not strike a balance and thus live off as much light as possible? It was not its nature.  Darkness likes darkness and the nature of physicality is blind greed, not balance. In order to escape it, we have to turn away from our own nature; it is the only way.  Trying to strike a balance is the illusion the darkness would like you to believe.

We are personifying the darkness for a reason: it does have a consciousness.  This is why you cannot fight it; this consciousness feeds off everyone collectively and individually. Every negative thought we have, let alone our selfish actions and speech, feed it and tell it how best to control us, what illusions with which to best confront us.

It is a battle that cannot be won, but there is a way out.  This year, G-d’s two Hands are reaching out to those who can wake themselves up and see the physical nature of our prison for what it is .

A Sign in the Sky

For 20 years we have been writing about the confluence of calendars that is to come when the year 5778 meets 2018.  The first time we were at 2018 was in the Hebrew Calendar 3760 years ago. This when G-d made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham, splitting the offerings half on one side, half on the other.  The confluence will happen this week. It will be marked by the largest Super Moon of the year this Jan 1-2, and by the Earth being the closest to Sun on Jan 3-4.  The process is beginning…

The largest and brightest Supermoon on recent record was on Jan 26, 1948, 70 years ago, the year Israel became a nation.  1948 in the Hebrew Calendar was when Abraham was born.

From the 28 times in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 we see the obvious juxtaposition to easy times and difficult ones, 14 on either side, like 2 hands. It is also like the sum of the 365 positive and 248 negative precepts in the Torah: 3+6+5+2+4+8 = 28, split 14 positive and 14 negative. What is only obvious in the Hebrew text is the juxtaposition between the words for time, (ועת and  עת) so similar to the placement of G-d’s hands in the Torah’s first 28 letter verse at (ואת and  את). One has the Aleph (א) of numerical value 1 and the other Ayin (ע) of numerical value 70. In the beginning 1 and at the end 70; there is a time to every purpose under heaven.  The numerical value of (ועת and  עת) plus the kolel for the 2 times equals 948. This is similar to 1948 when we add the Aleph (1000), which is 70 years prior to 2018 CE or 5778 HC.

At digit 948 within the telling first 1000 digits in Pi, there is string of numbers …5778185778 that include 2 of the three appearances of the number 5778 within those 1000 digits.  Why 2 times? Why 2 juxtaposed 5778’s? Will there be 2 different scenarios for time after 5778? Within those 1000 digits there is no string for 2018, but there are three of 2019. Two back to back years represented unfathomably within a mere 1000 digits, representing 2 entwined calendars, one an end of time, the other a beginning of a new time. But for whom. Who witnesses the end of time and who the beginning?

Much has been revealed about Pi, Phi and 18 in our books and previous articles and there is still much more that needs to be revealed.  One item of note that we have not yet revealed even beyond the 42-Letter Name giving us 9/.123049…= 73.1415777 or (70 + pi). And even beyond the Genesis Equation built into the Torah’s first verse of 28 letters that gives us Pi as 3.141545078… And even beyond the Zohar’s unfathonable secret about Pi is simply that Pi/2 or 3.14159265358…/2 = 1.5708, which gives us the year Israel became a nation in 5708 HC (1948 CE) 70 years ago this May.

Happy New Years to All, as this New Years is marked by both Calendars and by Hashem in our Skies, both by Day and by Night, a sign for all to see.

Shabbat Shalom

The Two Hands of G-d

The first time the word hand (יד) is written is the Torah is when the progenitor of King David and thus Mashiach is born. The 11th of the 28 times referenced the Hand on G-d’s Throne, then the passage continues saying that G-d will be at war with Amalek for all generations ( מ׳דר‌ דר‌ ), which decodes with gematria to “From 408.”  It is not a coincidence that the Zohar repeatedly speaks of the 408 years of troubles leading up to the time of Moshiach, or that the Torah is exactly 408 component letters shy of a complete 600,000, the log of which is 5.778.

The Zohar tells us that the word hand (יד) is actually the Name Hand(יד), coinciding with the Name David (דוד), also of numerical value 14. The two Hands are always combined within the Tertagrammaton (יהוה), which is mercy, through the two Heisi(הה) that are each composed of the letters Dalet and Yud (יד). “From these Two Hands, the heaven and earth were created, and all that is with them.”

דוזיכנסרךן

There are 10 primordial or component letters that existed in the world of Tohu, even before the primordial Aleph (א) that is Binah. They are : ן: ך: ר: ס: נ: כ: י:  ז: ו: ד.  Of them, the 1st and 4th spell the Name Hand (יד) of numerical value 14. There are innumerable secrets to these 10 letters and following the guidance of Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, we line them up 5 on one side, 5 on the other and cleave them in half. The initial light revealed by this cleaving in two is that their numerical total, 1557 divided by 2 is 778.5, an allusion to the frame of 5778 years that existed long before time existed.  That initial light also shines from the sum of the 5 letters (: נ: י:  ז: ו: ד), whose sum is 77; and whose sum of their square roots is 10 times the square root of 3 or 10√3; and whose sum of their squares is 2701, the numerical value of the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse.  The sum of the squares of the other 5 component letters is 784,000 or 28² x 1000. That 28² is (1000 – 216) is another indication that the two (2) hands are full of mercy without the judgements, which is gevura (216).

בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 

Two (2) Hands, 5 fingers on each hand, that created Heaven and Earth. It is not for nothing that of all Patriarchal names, only David’s (דוד) is comprised wholly of the primordial 10 letters. More to follow….

Israel’s Borders – A Divine Gift

For the first day of Chanukah our gift was the revelation that our solar system was not a once in a billion life-producing chance occurrence, but a gigantic fixed clock-like mechanism, tuned to very specific frequencies and wound to a specific time frame. On the second day of Chanukah our gift is the confirmation that the present boundaries of Israel were set by G-d and that they include all the territories won by war and fixed in 1973.

Most internet and international sources want to exclude the territories and box Israel in to a 8019 square mile area.  That would limit and confine Israel to a 20³ cube. These are the limits imposed on our sukkahs and connect them to Keter, the highest sefira (dimension), but it is the highest sefira within the physical realm of Malchut thus keeping Israel from its full potential as the State of Binah and of Moshiach, as it was always meant to be.  Sure, there is a purity, power and blessings to be received within that 20³ cube, the same way it is on Sukkot for those making the proper connections, but it is limited. And our goal as connected individuals, a people, and as a nation is to break out of those limitations. That has been the goal for 5778 years. We were given physical limitations, a set of rules and tools and told to free ourselves. From day one it has been a race against time and the forces that would hold us back.

This article is about Israel. We have included a screenshot here before the powers that be can change their web sites and perpetuate the illusion of limitations. We see that the full area of Israel should include the 2270 square miles in the West Bank, the 27 square miles in East Jerusalem and another 1150 square miles in the Golan Heights, for a total of 11,466 square miles. While it is interesting that the 27 miles of East Jerusalem form yet another cube, 3³, it is the total of 11,466 square miles that tells the real story.

It is said that every picture tells a story, yet we know from the ancient Kabbalists that every number does as well, since numbers are really just pictures (or imprints) of the underlying energies projected into our world.  And while we now realize that the pictures we see out there are often doctored and fake, numbers cannot lie—you can pick up a calculator and verify them for yourself. There is a reason for all the numbers in the Torah; they are not filler.

As it turns out, the square root of the 11,466 square miles is 107.07, whose significance we will get to in a moment. You can picture this graphically as Israel filling a square that is 107.07 miles long by 107.07 miles wide. Most significantly though is that that square root can broken down to √11466 = 21√26, since 11466 equals 441 x 26. First of all, 441 is the gematria value of the Hebrew word for Truth, (אמת) as in the phrase “Give Truth to Jacob,” from Michah 7:20 and secondly, 26 is the gematria value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  Therefore, the true total area of Israel spells out the “Truth of G-d” and moreover, the square root of that area—its essence—is equivalent to 21√26, which is the gematria value of the essence of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) times the higher Name of G-d, Ehyeh (אהיה), associated with Binah and the World to Come. So before we say another word, the area that Israel encompasses that includes the more recently conquered historic Israelite territories are defined by the two most essential Names of G-d. It represents their unification and connection to the World to Come. Remember, off by even 1 square mile and Israel’s territory is just a number with no significant meaning, or numerically spiritual relationship with G-d.

It is also relevant that the sum of the initials of the upper 6 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life total 441 as well. Truth!

תִּתֵּ֚ן אֱמֶת֙ לְיַֽעֲקֹ֔ב חֶ֖סֶד לְאַבְרָהָ֑ם אֲשֶׁר־נִשְׁבַּ֥עְתָּ לַֽאֲבֹתֵ֖ינוּ מִ֥ימֵי קֶֽדֶם   -Micah 7:20

As for the numerical square root of the area’s 11,466 square miles, 107.07, it is highly reminiscent of the number of letters in the Torah that preceded the 10 Commandments, 107,007. These rules were given in the 20th Chapter in Shmot (Exodus), the 7 overall.  While this may or may not reflect on Michah 7:20, the number 20 is the cube root of those limited 8000 square miles, the 10 Commandments in the Torah ended at Shmot 20:18, as in the year 2018, which marks the 70th year of Israel becoming a nation.  Furthermore, the year 2018 CE is also 5778 in the Hebrew calendar and most significantly, 5778 is the sum of the numbers from 1 to 107 is 5778.

There is much more to 11,466 than meets the eye, though that is the whole point of ancient gematria, to discover G-d’s hidden clues, meaning, and spiritual energy among the physicality of our world. There are 36 (לו) factors of the number 11,466, in other words, other whole numbers that can be multiplied together to give us the number 11,466.  The simplest one is 11,466 divided in half, or 11466/2 = 5733. The Hebrew year 5733 corresponds to 1973 CE, which is the year of the ’73 War when those additional territories included in the 11,466 square miles were cemented into the State of Israeli. According to Rav Brandwein, of blessed memory, this was the last time Moshiach Ben Joseph was present and ruled within Israel. That was 45 years ago.

The numbers 546 and 21 are also a factor pair of 11466 since 546 x 21 = 11466. We have already covered that 21 is the value of the higher Name of G-d, Ehyeh (אהיה), associated with Binah and the World to Come. As for 546, it is both the sum of the initials of the sefirot in the Tree-of-Life, and according to Rabbi Isaac Luria, the Arizal, the number 546 stands for Israel itself, so obviously it is noteworthy. He explains that it is its gematria value including the 5 letters of the name Israel as the kolel.

We mentioned the Biblical quote, “Give Truth to Jacob,” which many commentators have explained with several different meanings and connections. Here is one more that is pure Truth and comes straight out of the number 11,466, the area of Israel in square miles. Two more consecutive factor pairs of 11,466 relate directly to Jacob. The first set is 63 and 182 since 63 x 182= 11466. While the number 63 represents the Tetragrammaton (הי‐יוד‐הי‐ואו) in the aspect of Sag (Binah), the number 182 is the gematria of the name “Jacob” itself. Then the very next factor pair is 78 and 147 since 78 x 147 = 11466.  We know from the Arizal that 78 is the triple Tetragrammaton (יהוה יהוה יהוה). We also know from Rav Brandwein that 78 represents the value of the initials (עץ) of Etz Chaim (The Tree-of-Life), which he related to the year 5778 and the Geulah,(final redemption) when we will return to the Tree-of-life, or Binah, consciousness. The number 78 is also the complete gematria value for Adonai Echad (אחד יהוה) from the Shema Prayer. This alone may have meant something, yet it means even more multiplied with 147, the number of years in Jacob’s life. So given that we have Jacob’s name and his age as two consecutive numbers within the 36 factors, it may also be concluded that the factor 546 does stands for Israel, Jacob’s alternate Biblical name.

Before we visit some other significant factor pairs of the 11,466 square miles of Israel, we should note, considering that it is Chanukah, that the number 11466 is 54 minutes shy of a full 8 days (11520 minutes) and that 54 x 107 = 5778. By the way, the 10 Commandments were given in the 54th paragraph of Shmot. We keep going back to the 10 Commandments, which are comprised of 620 letters and the Hebrew word for 20 is Esrim (עשרים) of numerical value 20, the same as Keter (כתר).

The ordinal value of Esrim (עשרים) is 91 so it is fitting that the next factor pair is 91 x 126 = 11466. We know from all the Kabbalists that 91 represents the all-important unification of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) with Adonai (אדני) in (יאהדוני) and that 126 equals 3 x 42-Letter Name of G-d.

The next 3 factor pairs were more surprising to me than any, given that they are the main numbers that our solar system is based upon and that they define the important kabbalistic proportion of 1/3 to 2/3 or .333 to .666 that our solar system is built upon.

234 and 49 are a factor pair since 234 x 49 = 11466, and 273 and 42 are the consecutive factor pair since 273 x 42 = 11466. The number 42 is always representative of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the understanding of which is supposed to bring us the Geulah, and whether coincidence or not 42 +49 = 91, a combination aligned with the counting of the Omer for those that understand.  Yet it is 234 and 273 that are the most exciting to see in this list, along with the previously mentioned all-important factor 26, for you see in our last article we wrote about how our solar system was based on these very numbers.

Among a thousand other pertinent facts, we wrote about how the Earth was tilted 23.4˚ which turned out to be precisely 26% of the full 90˚ angle, and how 23.4 is 90% of 26, thus relating the Earth’s tilt to G-d’s Name. This also related to the complementary angle of (90 ˚ – 23.4 ˚) = 66.6˚.

And while 273 is the value of the word “gematria” itself, it is also the core temperature of the Sun at 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit, which is doubly relevant because the Sun’s surface temperature is 5778 ˚ K.

And while the absolute freezing point of all matter and energy is -273˚ C, sunspots revolve around the Sun’s surface in exactly 27.3 days, the same number of days that the Moon orbits the Earth. Meanwhile, the Moon is 27.3% of the Earth’s size, and it completes one turn on its axis with respect to the stars also every 27.3 days. These are just some of the many synergies built into the structure of our universe, which could not have happened nor by the hand of man or created by random chance, physics, and pure dumb luck.

There is so much more, but what is also important to this divine design of our universe in which the alignment of these 3 celestial numbers used as angles, temperature, times, and distances are coordinated is their proportions to one another. The 3 numbers (23.4 – 26 – 27.3) are 2.6 and 1.3 units apart respectively, meaning that of the entire 3.9 units that separate them they are split into the .666 and .333 proportions (i.e. 2.6/3.9 = .666 and 1.3/3.9 = .333). These proportions govern both the Kabbalistic principles as taught by the Arizal and the physical attributes of our universe as detailed at length in our prior article. Furthermore, 13, 26 and 39 are all factors of Israel’s G-d given area, 11,466 square miles.

One more tidbit: while the ordinal value of the Hebrew names for the Sun, Moon, and Earth equal 107, the distance from the Earth to the Sun is the exact equivalent to 107 Suns, and the Earth orbits the Sun at 107,000 KPH (66,600 MPH). So I guess these two articles, Chanukah gifts, are intimately related; they certainly are divinely so as G-d set the size of Israel and set the firmaments in Heaven.

One last odd note about the factor pairs of 11,466. The factors in the two pairs, 6 x 1911 and 3 x 3822 add up to 5742 and when we add their digits (6+1+9+1+1+3+3+8+2+2 = 36) to that total, they add up to 5778. Is it a coincidence we light 36 candles over the 8 days of Chanukah and there are 36 factors of Israel’s total land mass? Let’s all connect to the Ohr HaGanuz, the light of Moshiach available these 8 days. Let us give truth to Jacob, who was born 3580 years ago and the to Maccabees who fought for Moshiach in the year 3585 HC. Since 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach these cannot be coincidences either. G-d had a plan, always did, and still does. The question is do we want to get with it.  By the way, as you can see in those screen shots above, the length of Israel from North to South is 424 km and since 424 is the gematria of Moshiach Ben David if that does not tell you who is really calling the shots, nothing will.  This is the year to connect. This is it. And this is the holiday that connects us.

The Divine CalendarUsing a little known, but deeper gematria method (1911 x 3822)/(1911 + 3822) = 1274, yet another of the 36 factors. There is probably no end to the secrets revealed in the number 11,466 because it is not just a number, but the area that was chosen for Israel by G-d, back in 2018 of the Hebrew Calendar when He made the Covenant of Halves with Abraham. That 2018 HC corresponds to 2018 CE, which is 5778 CE is no coincidence, just as Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC corresponds to Israel’s birth in 1948 CE; the Gregorian and Hebrew Calendars converge in 5778. G-d works in mysterious ways. We are just lucky that we are privileged to be able to see some of them. May we all be in Israel, within these G-d given borders, to receive Moshiach in this G-d given year.

Blessings to Everyone
