Sukkot Once Again: Time to Revitalize and Nourish the 70 Nations.

When we’re called to the Torah we’re supposed to channel and share our energy with the entire congregation.  Even more so when we’re called before the King of Kings and receive his blessings and energy for the new year; we are suppose to share it with the whole world, hence the holiday of Sukkot.  Through the proper meditations and the implementation of the ancient knowledge with the proper traditional technology the well-springs will open and flow for everyone.

I’m repeating and updating below an article posted a year ago to explain many of the secrets and kavannot of the shakings of the lulov within the sukkah. This year, if we shake with our hearts we will shake the world awake. Let’s do it together.

The Shakings

Regarding the daily shakening of the four species, the 5 sets x 6 directions, for a total of 30, corresponds to the 30 blasts of the shofar from Rosh Hashannah and the large Lamed (spiritually connected to Binah) of numerical value 30, that is found in the Torah. The word Lamed has the numerical value of 74 or 70 +4, which as you’ll see later, representing the 70 Nations and the 4 species.

That Lamed connects to the Lamed of Lulav. It’s also the Lamed that along with the letter Pe controls the month of Tishrei (Libra), according to Abraham Avinu, in which we do both the shofar blowings and the shakings. It’s also the lamed of the word aleph (ELP, the first), and when the controlling letters of Tishrei are completed with the letter Aleph (Aleph-Lamed-Pe), they connect to both keter and the beginning, as in Aleph B’Tishrei (permutated to spell Bereshit, the beginning).

With the 3 shakings per direction, corresponding to the 3 beats per type of blast of the shofar, there are 18 total shakings per set, and as Rav Abraham Brandwein points out, “The Lulav hints at the vertebral column that has 18 vertebrae and every movement indicates vitality. Thus all 4 species need to be damp and alive and not dry.” The 18 corresponds to the value of the word, chai, (life). And straightening this connection is that the word value of lulav is 68, as in chaim (life)

With 18 shaking per each of the 5 sets there are 91 total shakings per day, which corresponds to amen and the all-important unification of G-d’s Names that it represents (YHVH with ADNY ) and to the value of the word Succah itself, which helps us to integrate the inner and outer light.

Moreover, at 30 daily shakenings x 7 days, there are 210 total shakings, as in the 210 years of Egyptian exile. And when the 3 shakings per direction are considered, there are 210 x 3 or 630 total shakings in the 7 days. 630 is 10 x 63, the value of the Tetragrammaton in the aspect of Binah. The number 10 always corresponds to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and in this case to the 10 sub-dimensions (inner sefirot) within Binah. During the entire process of Sukkot, we’re drawing down the energy from Yesod of Ima (Binah) so we see how the Binah connections are very fitting and part and parcel to the technology involved in the shakings.

Over the 7 days of Sukkot, we’re making 70 sacrifices to share the energy with the 70 nations of the world. Each of these sacrifices corresponds to a specific one of the sub-sefirot in order as we descend through them during the 7 day period.

The 4 Species

Regarding the four species: As we know from the Arizal, the four species correspond to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH): Hadas (Yud), Aravah (Hei), lulav (vav) and Etrog (hei). So since the numerical values of Hadas and Aravah = 346 (Shmo), and the two species above correspond to Y-H Shmo (the Name of YH), as in 5 of the 6 letters that occur at the top of the 248 columns of the Torah that are not vavs, excluding the initial Bet of Bereshit. Nevertheless, the three sides of the sukkah itself forms the shape of the letter Bet, completing the B’Y-H ShMV sequence, and the Bet can also be said to come from the lulav (LVLB).  It can be said that the word lulav represents the entire Torah in two different ways: 1) it begins with (L) and ends in (B); and (2) it also ends in the letter combination Lamed-Bet (LB), as in the first (B) and last (L) letters of the Torah. This letter reversal is an allusion to the recycling of the Torah that occurs during this period when we read the last verse of the Torah and immediately twist it back to the beginning and read from Bereshit.
As for the numerical value of Hadas and Aravah and lulov together it equals 414 2 x 207 (twice the numerical value of Or, light), thus representing the running and returning light. While the numerical value Hadas and lulov together (68+69) equals 137, Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and parallel.
As for the etrog , we know from chazal that the word etrog has the value 610, as in parnesa (sustenance) and ma’aser (tithing), and their corresponding meditations for drawing the Shefa into our lives.  This numerical connection makes logical sense, considering that the Etrog corresponds to the malchut of yesod, the place where we earn our parnesa (sustenance).

But the total value of the 4 species (610+277+68+69) = 1024, which is 256 x 4 with 256 being the value of the Ark of the Covenant (also Aaron) and 1024 being 210 as in the 210 years of exile yet again. Furthermore, the number 1024 represents the 1024 unique word values in the Torah, which is not a coincidence and not coincidentally 32 x 32, which is the measure of the Holy Alter of the Third Temple in cubits and obviously connected to the 32 paths of the Tree-of-Life.

Furthermore, as we meditate on ending the 4th exile by sharing light with the 70 nations through the 70 sacrifices, it’s appropriate that the sum of the 4 final letters (B,G,H,S) in the names of the 4 species add up to 70, while that of the Hadas and Aravah alone add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai.

And it’s almost needless to mention that the 4th exile is supposed to end 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 (5708).
Interestingly, and not coincidentally, the sum of the ordinal value of the 16 letters in the names of the 4 species is 151, as in the value of the Name, Ehyeh (EHYH) spelled out (milui) and also of the word mikve.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value of the letters in lulav is 32, as in the numerical value of the letters Lamed and Bet (LB), which spells Lev, the Hebrew word for heart, and as mentioned in previous articles the last and first letters in the Torah. This is another connection to the 32 paths of Wisdom, which is in essence the Tree-of-life (Etz Chaim), as represented on Sukkot by the lulav, whose standard gematria value is 68, that of chaim (life). And note that, not coincidentally, the Inner Courtyard of the Third Temple is 100 cubits by 100 cubits while the Alter in the very center of it is 32 x 32 cubits, leaving a space of 68 cubits all around.
Then when we add Lulav’s standard value and its ordinal one, to get its complete value we get 68 + 32 = 100, the value of sach (SCC), the roof (covering) of the Sukkah, anb extremely important component in the Sukkot technology, one that represents keter, the highest sefira, of representative numerical value 100, as in the Third Temple’s maximum height, 100 cubits.

So when we shake the Lulav we not only want to bring it back to our heart, but we want to mediate on the light and love channeling back and forth through it, as we stand both in our succahs and in the center of the Third Temple, channeling for the entire world.

Now, if we add all the elements of the holiday together, we get 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215, but we wont go into it now; nevertheless, when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology is revealed:

For example the 11 unique letters used in Creation of the first verse of the Torah connect with the 11 dots above the letters that occur in the same parsha (portion) as the large letter lamed, and together they help us convert curses into blessings through the 11 incenses (etc) and the 42 letters of the 11 sefirot (including Da’at). These 11 unique letters have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214, and 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations for whom we’re connecting to the Temple sacrifices during the days of Sukkot. Also, as we know from R’ Abulafia of blessed memory, 1214 is the exact value for the Hebrew phrase (ZYRVP HEVTYVT) meaning “permutation of the letters.”

Now, while the last of the 11 letters in the words under the 11 dots is the letter ayin, with a value of 70, the complete value (standard and ordinal) of all 11 letters under the dots is 422, which is the exact numerical value of the word “seventy (70)” (ShBAYM). These, of course, connect to the destruction of the first Two Holy Temples in –422 BCE and in 70 CE, respectively, as is detailed and chronicled in The Divine Calender.

It’s also not a coincidence that the letter ayin, with a numerical value of 70, has an ordinal value of 16, as in the 16 letters of the 4 species discussed above.

In case it’s not understood, it is our responsibility to mediate on sharing this light with the 70 Nations, and this is why we were blessed to be the channels and given these magnificent divine tools to use. As it says in Isaiah 56:7, ” I will bring them to My holy Mountain and make them rejoice in My House of Prayer…For My House will be called the House of Prayer for all the nations.”

The first verse of the Torah not only has 11 unique letters but also has a total of 28 letters, and the ordinal value of the first 9 of those letters adds up to 100, sach and Keter, yet again. Moreover, the triplet BER meaning well is found in permuted form twice within these 9 letters as BRE (to create): BRESHYT BRE This is because it takes two drops from below to cause one to flow down from above, which is also why the Moshiach prophecies are based on 666, or 2/3. We have to move 2/3 of the way ourselves, and G-d will do the rest.

That BER (well) and BER (to create) are spiritually related is easily understood if one sees BER (well) as the feminine principal or vessel, which is what creates, gives birth, or manifests. While a river can flow all day long, the water (or Light) must be drawn into a vessel in order to irrigate and nourish and breed life. This helps explains the water connection, “Pouring of the Water” (nisuch hamayim), during and to the holiday of Sukkot. And during the time of the Holy Temple, “Pouring of the Water” was accompanied by signing and dancing and much celebration, just as it should be, considering the first songs of the Torah are about water, and the flow of the Light.

It all comes together, the holiday of Sukkot, “The Beginning” and the revitalization of life in that those 9 letters, including their ordinal value sum to 1215,

Sukkot is the time of joy, when the energy of rejoicing is drawn down upon us by our actions within the succah for the entire year. Let’s do all we can to spread that rejoicing to the whole world.

The Secret in the Song; The Secret of Moshiach.

In the 40th verse of the 32nd chapter of Devarim we have an oft overlooked statement by Moses
in the middle of the all-important Song of Moses that holds one of the most important secrets of the Torah.

The Zohar goes on and on about the connection between this 32nd chapter (parsha Ha’Azinu) that’s shaped like the Magen David and the 32 Paths of Wisdom, in other words the Tree-of-Life. The Zohar also tells us elsewhere that Moses reincarnates every generation and brings us the spirit of Moshiach each time. We’ve written earlier about how Moshe and Adam (and many other tzaddikim) both knew when Moshiach was supposed to arrive.

The Arizal tells us that David was an incarnation of Adam in the triad (ADM: Adam-David-Mashiach) and we’ve written about how the midpoint of David’s life (2889 HC) marked the midpoint in the Divine Calendar that is punctuated with the arrival of Moshiach and the geula (final redemption) in 5778 (2018 CE) as advised to us by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag (HaSulam), 7 years from now.

And as Rav Brandwein points out, 78 is (Ayin-Chet), the initials of AZ ChYYM (the Tree-of-Life) that is prophesied to manifest for us in 5778, as the Zohar says 70 years after the formation of the state of Israel in 5708.  Please note that this divine manifestation in 5778 is just a powerful window of opportunity and not a foregone conclusion; we must earn it.
Now, as for that little phrase mentioned by Moses, the one that contains one of the deepest secrets of the Torah, it begins with “For I lift up my hand to Heaven, and say,” and follows with “Chi Anochi L’Olam (ChY ENCY LALM),” meaning “As I live forever.” People miss this extremely significant detail because they assume Moses is speaking for G-d, but why would G-d in Heaven raise his Hand to Heaven?

What is this like? It’s like when Moses held up his hand to empower the Israelites to defeat the Amalekites. The Torah tells us as long as Moses hand (was) is raised the Israelites would win; when it wasn’t Amalek, the Kabbalistic code word for “doubt” of the same numerical value, would win.

Whoever was talking for Whom, Moses was and is the channel, our channel. And if his hand remains up in the end of days, we win, triumphing over our doubts so as to experience the Tree-of-life reality. Both related verses are followed by verses describing the use of the Sword (Charev) of Moses (details for another day) and both verse end similarly but with an all-important disctiction. The verse at Devarim 32:40 ends in forever (LALM), while the verse at Exodus 17:11 ends in Amalek (AMLK). The difference between them is that the Hebrew letter Lamed extends upward toward Heaven and the Hebrew letter Koof descends.  Numerically their difference is 70 in standard gematria, and 7 in ordinal value, 77 altogether. The choice is pretty clear: we support Moses and keep his hands held high as the Israelites did during their earlier battle, or we don’t. The Torah goes on to warn us that “G-d shall be at war with Amalek for all generations,’ meaning, we shall face our doubts until the very end.

While the initials of verse 32:40 (ChEL) sum to 39, as in tal, the dew that will resurrect the dry bones at the end of days, an over simplification of a topic that the tzaddikim have filled volumes on, it’s the final letters and the complete gematria of the 3 words that tell the full story.
As Chazal explains, the final letters of a Torah phrase refer to the future and if so, the future this phrase points to is Keter, the highest crowning sefira (dimension). The final letters sum to 620 (Keter), just as there are 620 letters in the 10 Commandments, which was the last time Moses brought us to the summit of the Tree-of-Life reality, 3330 years ago (66.6 jubilee years).
But it’s the full 3 words that explain it all. Most of our readers already know the equation 54 x 107 = 5778 and significance of 54 being the timing rhythm our brains operate on etc., and also that the sum of all the integers though 107 is 5778 in the same way that the sum of all the integers through 73 (Chochma/Wisdom) is 2701, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse. To those readers it will be all the more significant that the ordinal value of “As I Live (ChY ENCY)” is 54 and that of “As I Live forever (ChY ENCY  LALM) is 107; nevertheless, to everyone it should be relevant that the complete gematria of the phrase Sung by Moses to the Israelites in the 5792 verse of the Torah is 376, that of Shalom (Peace).
Moreover, the 7 Yuds in the full verse represent the 70 years that Adam gave to King David, and also of the Zohar’s prophecies for Israel, and also of Abraham’s life prior to his receiving G-d’s Covenant for Israel in 2018 HC, and thus we see that the 7 remaining years to 5778 represent the final tenth (or tithe, 7/70) of the 70 final years until 2018 CE (5778 HC), so let us overcome our doubts, keep Moses hand upraised, so that Moses shall live forever and Peace shall be upon us, as the Tree-of-Life once again becomes  a reality for us. As aided and guided by the Torah, lets follow the Lamed of forever and look upward, and not downward along the Koof of Amalek for the remaining 7 of the 70 years.
Why was this revealed in verse 5792 and not 14 verses earlier in verse 5778, who knows? Maybe it’s because 14 is the numerical value of David, or of “Hand (YD),” as in the hand that will be lifted up to Heaven. Or it could simply be that this was the 302107th letter in the Torah.

Or it could be that we are to count this time from the 14th verse in the Torah in which G-d placed the lights in the sky? And the brightest of those physical lights is our Sun, whose surface temperature is undeniably, 5778 K, the only temperature that would sustain life on Earth as we know it.
As for the full verse, its initials sum to 161, as in G-d’s higher Name Ehyeh, and the final letters of the entire verse sum to 376 (peace) yet once again (when the kolel of 1 is subtracted).

And the first 3 words of the verse (Ki EShah El) add up to 363, that of H’Moshiach (the Messiah), just in case we weren’t exactly sure to what or to who the final 3 words were referring  in Moses’ reincarnation.

Finally, the first and last letters of the verse (Caf and Mem sofit) also add up to 620 (Keter). And if we neglect the sofit value they sum to 80, as in the spelled-out value of the letter Mem and as in the 80 times the word Sheva (7) is found in the Torah; it’s also the number of times the numerical value 358, that of Moshiach, is found in the Torah.

Let the Torah be our Guide.

And whether this was intentional or not, the numerical placement of the two verses 2nd Book 17:11 and 5th Book 32:40 add up to 107. Go figure!

The Entrance; A Step Forward and Upward.

The article picks up our series about Joseph’s Pyramid and its connection to the Future Holy Temple, which we left off late last year (2009).  In it, we illustrated a possible design connection to the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin (the spiritual linkage between the upper world and our world as defined by the Tree-of-Life) with the placement of the extra wide 50-inch masonry band at the pyramid’s 35th level. It split the pyramid neatly into 1/6th and 5/6th of its height, which itself is a reference to relationship between the Hebrew letters Vav (V) of numerical value 6 and the letter Hei (H) of numerical value 5, the two final letters in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), which, as we’ve discussed previously, are at the core of both the pyramid and certainly the Holy Temple.

If we apply that same split to the width of the pyramid’s base, 330 cubits, we’d have 55 cubits and 275 cubits respectively. And while 275 corresponds to the full value of the 4 expanded aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) from which the holy cubit (27.5 inches) derives (see previous articles about the holy cubit for details), 275 is also 10 times 27.5, a reflection of the full 10 sefirot (dimensions) in their completion.

So knowing that the number 55 (twice 27.5) may play a part in the design structure of Joseph’s Pyramid. Let’s revisit the secret entrance to the pyramid, which is exactly 55 feet off the ground.

First of all, as we recently did with teh Washington Monument’s base of 55 ft wide and its capstone of 55 ft high, let’s note the wonderful symmetry of 55 ft being the exact square root of the the pyramid’s base perimeter, 3025 feet. Obviously, this was no design fluke, any more than it was with the Washington Monument. Nor was it a fluke that the base of the pyramid’s South side, 756.25 feet, is also the exact square of the 27.5 inch cubit, in other words:

Holy cubit = 27.5 inches

Holy cubit x Holy cubit in inches = (27.5 x 27.5) = 756.25 = Pyramid Base in ft

And

756.25 x 4 sides = 3025 = Pyramid Perimeter = 552

And Holy cubit + Holy cubit = (27.5 + 27.5) = 55

Or alternatively

55/2 = 27.5.

The secret entrance to the pyramid lies 55 ft straight up the steep highly polished face of the pyramid and was hidden by a massive hinged stone door, seamless and flush to the face. It guarded the secret entrance for thousands of years, and was never actually revealed beyond a need-to-know basis. This is why in 820 CE, Caliph Al Mamoun had to blow a hole in the side of the pyramid in order to open it  to the world.  He found no gold inside, nor even a King’s mummified body. Indeed, no artifacts or bodies were ever concealed or found within the great pyramid.  All the secrets were locked within its measurements and unlocked by knowing the measure of the Holy Cubit, itself only recently revealed.

Today, with the magnificent multi-ton casing stones stripped away by earthquakes, time, and urban planners who used them to build mosques in Cairo, we can see and metaphysically enter the Pyramid the proper way.  What we find first is that on the 19th level of the masonry, 55 ft up, and 24 ft off center from the Pyramid’s exact central axis, is the proper gabled entrance to the Pyramid, with the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) engraved above it, the true guardian of the secrets.

Of course, 55 feet being exactly equal to 24 cubits is just another bit of beautiful symmetry incorporated into its design. And this symmetry connects us to the Future Holy Temple, which is the whole reason we’re writing about the pyramid and may be the real reason the pyramid was constructed in the first place.  In a subsequent article  we’ll explain the reason that the upper platform of the Future Holy Temple’s centrally located Alter measures 24 x 24 cubits and telescopes down to a base of 32 x 32 cubits.  For now, let’s just note that they are connected.  Don’t forget, that since 24 cubits = 55 feet, the upper platform of the centrally located Alter of the Future Holy Temple measures 55 ft x 55 ft.

Which means that the mysteriously dimensioned Washington Monument of base 55 ft x 55 ft would fit seamlessly atop the Alter of the Future Holy Temple.  We can ask ourselves why? Why does this Egyptian Obelisk at the center core of the US power base connect to the Great Pyramid in Egypt, at the exact center of the world’s land mass, and why is it designed to fit snugly atop the Alter at the exact center of the Future Holy Temple, the nexus point connecting our world and the spiritual one.

As we’ll explain in future articles the final gate to the Holy of Holies is the Gate of 42, all the other Gates of the Future Holy Temple being a full 50 cubits in height.  But for now, lets just note that 50 cubits = 1375 inches, and not only does the last 3 lines of the Holy 42-Letter names of G-d (Ana B’koach) sum (906+230+239) numerically to exactly 1375, but

The pyramid’s base/the Washington Monument base = 756.25/55 ft = 13.75

Alternatively,

the pyramid’s base/it’s entrance height = 756.25/55 ft = 13.75

And half a cubit = 27.5/2 = 13.75 inches

Briefly, the measure of the 50 cubits is its connection to the 50 gates of Binah, the upper spiritual dimension of Understanding, and should be noted if one wants to use the last three lines of the Ana B’koach as a gateway.  This is also an allusion to the 50-year jubilee period that the Torah commands us to count.

As for the hidden entrance 55 ft up being on the 19th level of the pyramid is not so surprising to those initiated to its secrets, or entrusted to keep its secrets.  As the kabbalists well knew back then 55 is numerically in Hebrew represented by the letters Nun (50) and Hei (5) and the ordinal value of Nun (14) and Hei (5) together sum to 19.  Meanwhile, it was also well know that the two Letters Hei (H) of the YHVH were both gateways and while the lower Hei(H), representing the world of Malchut, maintains its value of 5, the upper Hei(H), representing Binah rises to the level of 50. Together, they are 55.  The secret to all this is found in Genesis 42:2, when Jacob tells his sons to go down to Egypt, and thus begin the 210 years of exile there.   I will explain this in another brief article shortly, for now, please just note that the verse begins with the Hebrew word Hineh (HNH) containing the 2 gates (HH) and the (NH).

Given the spiritual importance of  Alter of the Future Holy Temple, and of any  entrance, it’s not so surprising the the pyramid’s entrance was hidden 55 feet high, especially with what we know (and will reveal in subsequent articles) about the advanced scientific knowledge programmed into the pyramid’s dimensions.

Nevertheless, before we actually enter the pyramid we should ask what the simple connection is between: the pyramid’s capstone being 32 ft x 32 ft; and the Future Temple’s Alter being 32 cubits x 32 cubits at its base; also with the Alter’s summit platform being 55 ft x 55 ft; and the base of the entire pyramid being 55/2 ft x 55/2 ft; and with the entire pyramid’s base perimeter (3025 ft) also being 55 ft x 55 ft.

Basically what’s the deeper, spiritual, connection between 32 and 55?

It’s Kavod, G-d’s Glory.

The numerical value of Kavod (KBVD) is 32 and when you add its ordinal value you get 55, so both these figures were intertwined into the pyramid’s structure to represent the Glory of G-d,.

The great Pyramid never stood for some Egyptian Pharoah, who never occupied the Pyramid. When Al Mamoun blasted his way in and the 3 gigantic granite plugs were remove from the ascending passage, all the chambers were empty–no pharaoh, no retinue, no gold, no hieroglyphics, nor any carvings of any kind, just lots of secret knowledge hidden in the pure numerical dimensions.

That’s not to say there was no power there, just none tied to pagan gods of beliefs.

The Essence of the Letter Yud; the Power of 10.

All light emanates from the letter Yud(Y).The first line of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) has the numerical value 506, and since the 42-Letter Name of G-d is divided into 14 triplets and there are 506 occurrences of these triplets in the Torah (see The Genesis Prayer), it would appear this is no coincidence.

We’ve mentioned repeatedly that we know from the sages that 506 is the numerical value of “Ahavat Chinam,” unconditional love. And as Zion just pointed on in his comment on our last article that 22 x 23 = 506. What he left unsaid, but is well aware, is that 22 represents the 22 letters (energy bundles) of the alef-bet and 23 is the numerical value of ray (TzYV) or radiation, as in the light of the Shechina. Thus 506 is also the radiation of the 22 letters or energy building blocks that Abraham Avinu tells us in his Sefer Yetzira that the universe is constructed with.

Moreover, the complete numerical value, including the kolel, for radiation of the Shechina (TzYV H’ShCYNH)is 424, the same as that of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah). Keep in mind that the tzaddikim have told us that it is the understanding of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) that will help bring about the Geula (final redemption) and the Moshiach.

What does this have to do with the letter Yud(Y) and the essence of 10?

Let’s follow the trail of light. According to the Zohar, Peace (Shalom) is the vessel for everything. So far so good; on a simple level, without peace in a marriage or a nation, there is no vessel for holding wealth, health, happiness, fulfillment, in a word, light.

Now let’s take it a step further. The complete numerical value (standard plus ordinal) of Shalom (ShLVM) is 376 + 52 – 4 (kolel for the 4 letters) = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah) again. So far so good again; the completion of the vessel of Peace leads to the Mashiach (Messiah).

So what does the Moshiach lead to?

So now, let’s take the complete numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (MShYCh Bn DVD) and see that it is 424 + 82 = 506. Thus the presence of the Moshiach leads to unconditional love and the full emanation of the radiation of the Shechina through the 22 letters of the Alef-Bet, in other words, the revelation of the Tree-of-Life reality that is defined by the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and the 22 paths that connect them. The difference between that reality and ours is that we operate in the lowest level of that existence and perceive everything as finite and limited, while in the time of the Moshiach, our perception will open to comprehend the infinite, and we’ll realize there are no limitations, physical or spiritual.

By the way Shalom and Mashiach have the same ordinal value, 52, tying them both spiritually to the emanation of manifestation, known as Ban(52), or Malchut. Meaning that to achieve that ultimate Tree-of-life reality, the vessel for Peace and the establishment of the Moshiach will have to start with our work on the physical plane.

But what of the letter Yud(Y)?

The letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10 is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton, the ineffable Name of G-d (YHVH) and is always associated with the sefira of Wisdom, Chochma. We’ve previously discussed its associations with the 10 Commandments (Utterances), 10 Plagues, the 10 generations of Adam, the 10 Songs, which are all just manifestations of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life.  Indeed, all our mathematics is based on the base-10 decimal system, an those 10 dimensions that the Ancient Kabbalists wrote about are the same 10 dimensions that modern physicists swear comprise the greater structure of the universe.

Nevertheless, the letter Yud (Y) is spelled YVD, of numerical value 20 and when we spell out those letters yet again, forming the 3rd iteration of the letter Yud, they add up to (10+20+476) = 506.

OK, we know from the tzaddikim and the Zohar and from the modern mathematicians and physicists that the 10 sefirot (dimensions) expand by the power of 10: 10-100-1000… So considering what we’ve just learned, as the light(energy) of the letter (Y) expands exponentially from 1 to 1000 (Keter) it equates to 506, which is equivalent to the full emanation of all 22 letters and to the emanation of unconditional love and to the manifestation of Mashiach Ben David.

There are 13 letters in this 3-part expansion and 13 is the numerical value of Ahava (love) and Echad (one), as in “G-d is One.” It is not a coincidence that the letter Yud (Y) is the first letter of G-d’s name (YHVH), as the entire name emanates from the letter Yud(Y), and note that this full emanation totals 42 letters in its 3 iterations, forming the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d.

But back to the simpler expansion of the letter Yud (Y), which totaled 506 numerically. The ordinal value of the 13 letters in the 3 iterations of the letter Yud(Y) is 110, as in the numerical value of Nes (NS, meaning miracles), and as in 10 for each 11 sefirot in the complete Tree-of-life (including Da’at), which incidentally is spelled out in 42 letters. Thus the complete value of the 3 iterations of the letter Yud(Y), is 616, the exact numerical value of H’TVRH, “The Torah,” and also 616 is the number of times the exact name Moses (MShH) is written in the Torah.

So what’s in a letter?

From now on every time you see the letter Yud(Y), especially in the Torah and especially in the Name of G-d (YHVH) you should see the full manifestation of its energy, its radiation, until it encapsulates you and the world and brings about the Moshiach, Unconditional Love, and the Tree-of-Life reality, B”H soon. The message here is that that energy (cosmic imprint) is ever present and only needs to be manifest. We can tap into it at any time.
