Chanukah: Follow the Tzaddik; Ignite the Light!

Chanukah: Eight days of Miracles Designed to Bring Mashiach

menora 1 lightIf we truly want to bring Moshiach consciousness to the world there is really only one way to do it, by emulating a tzaddik in our actions and thoughts. I have been blessed with being close with two of them, both of blessed memory. They both had one overriding attribute that we all need to emulate. They both did everything with selfless, caring love and with a noble purpose. They showed us that we must inject caring love into our actions and do them with the singular purpose of bringing Moshiach. It is not only the way; it is the only way. When we are doing something out of pure love it will be one with the Light Force and thus whatever the outcome, it will be the right outcome. However, that is not enough. We also have to inject intent and purpose in order to direct that Light. We can scatter the Light or focus it, but the only way to achieve anything in this world or the next, is to focus it. The Torah and the tzaddikim before us have provided us with numerous tools to enable us to harness and focus that Light and they had a singular purpose — “to bring Moshiach consciousness to our world.” We have a huge opportunity these 8 days of Chanukah to join them and actively draw down the Light of Moshiach. The following connections and revelations have been provided by them to empower us in that endeavor.

Everything about this special period of time from the Torah portions to the dreidel and jelly donuts is designed around the singular purpose of bringing Moshiach. We need to make a crucial choice now. We can either focus our intent and open our hearts, or attend parties and exchange gifts. And yes, we can do both, but the light will go where we FOCUS it.

The Torah

Each Torah portion and each holy day is a unique cosmic window. The cosmic window at this time of year contains the 4 portions (Vayeshev, Vayigash, Miketz and Vayechi) of Joseph, and within torah scrollthe timing of these 4 portions are the 8 days of the light of Moshiach called Chanukah, whose numerical value is 89, just like the complete value of the initials of the 4 portions, also 89. So it should come as no surprise that, as Daniel, one of the treasured contributors of our blog points out, all four names of the portions connect to the numerical value of Moshiach, 358.

The standard gematria value together with their ordinal number of the 2 portions Vayeshev and Vayigash is 2 x 358; while the gematria sofit of Miketz and Vayechi is 3 x 358, for a total of 5 x 358 hidden in these four Torah Portions.

The Dreidel

4 dreidelsEven the simple child’s dreidel serves to focus our attention on Moshiach. It has four sides corresponding to the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) and engraved with the Hebrew Letters G/ג, H/ה, N, and Sh/ש (גהנש). The Four (4) letters have a numerical value of 358, that of Mashiach, the Messiah.

From the games we play to candles we light, the entire Chanukah event is designed to help us bring Moshiach. And that is where our consciousness needs to be. The eight days are a cosmic event, not a celebration of a miracle that once happened; the miracle happened because it occurred during this cosmic event. The lights we ignite each night connects us to the special Light of miracles available to us once a year for 8 days starting every 25th of Kislev (Sagittarius). It is a different light/energy than what is available to us in the 8 days of Sukkot-Shemini Atzeret; and it is different from the light available to us during the 8 days of Pesach (Passover); and it is different from the energy available to us on the 8 other holy days throughout the year. In total there are 32 days of varying special Light/energy (besides the special light of Shabbat). These 32 days connects to the 32 Paths of Wisdom of the Tree-of-Life, through which these various lights shine unto us.

The oil lasted 8 days because the Light of Chanukah, Mashiach Light, lasted 8 days, not the other way around. As soon as the special Light of Moshiach (Ohr HaGanuz) was revealed into our nova explosionexistence, it was hidden. I learned from the Rav that on the first Shabbat of Creation, it was brought out for 32 hours then hidden away for the time of the Messiah, but for 8 days every year we can get a taste of the Light.

This is why the 4 letters of Mashiach (משיח) spell out Madlikim Shmona Yemei Chanukah (“lighting up eight days of Chanukah”).


The books of the Maccabees date the first war as 3585 HC, which coincides with the numerical value of Moshiach, which is 358.  The fight was for liberation, and so is ours today, liberating ourselves from the clutches of physicality.  This war was fought and won by a small band men and the Light Force of G-d against overwhelming odds and numbers, not so dissimilar from the schematic once again taking shape today.  A cosmic window opened back then and another is opening now.

Chanukah Meditations

How to Count the 8 Days

chnaukah lightsOne of the key elements of Chanukah is based on the spiritual tenet that nothing can ever be lost. Once it goes from a latent (potential) state to an actual physical state, it is forever present in the universe, whether we can physically see it or not. So the light of the first night, is added to the second light and so forth until the 8th day when we have the light of 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36 days of light.

That explained, we can note that the sum of all the Torah occurrences of the words “first” through “eighth”— rishon, sheni, shlishi, revi’i, chamishi, shishi, sheviyi, and shemini—is (189+125+2+2+2+2+0+0) = 322. Since the sum of days (numbers) 1-8, representing the summation of the Chanukah lights for the 8 days is 36, we can express the 8 days by the energetic equaition (322 + 36) = 358, the value of Moshiach yet again. Further, while 36 can be viewed as a rounding off the numerical term 35.8 to 36, to the kabbalists 36 represents the Lamed-Vav (לו) tzaddikim, or 36 righteous souls necessary at all times to maintain our existence in the universe. By emulating them, we are joining them, and by joining them we are indeed, drawing down the light of Moshiach into the world.

The 44 Candles Sweeten the Judgment

How to count the candles

On a simple level, over the 8 nights, we are lighting 44 candles in total, including the shamesh (servant candle) every night. These 44 candles correspond to the ordinal value of the 5 letters in Chanukah (חנוכה) which is 44. It also corresponds to the initials of all 10 plagues, which also add up to 44. The power to create miracles is built into every aspect of these 8 days.

Moreover, the first plague was blood, dam, also of numerical value 44, and as the Arizal explains “the word “m’damei“, whose numerical value (89) equals that of the word “Chanukah,” is rooted in the letters Dalet (ד) and Mem (מ), which spell the Hebrew word for “blood.” He further advised that blood represents the negative powers of judgment and our mission it is to sweeten that judgement through the lighting of the 44 candles. They nullify the kelipot before us.

As the Arizal further explains the 44 candles connect first and foremost to the regressive spelling of the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh (אהיה), whose numerical value is 44, thus connecting us to Chochma and Binah;


Counting Candles

If our actions of lighting the chanukiya each night rekindle the energy from the night before and culminate in completeness on Zot Chanukah (the final night), then: on the first night we light 1 chanukiah all litcandle and it stays lit metaphysically for (at least) 8 days; and on the second night we light 2 candles that stay lit, giving us a second day total of 3 lit (rekindled) candles. On the third night we are lighting, (rekindling) 1 + 2 + 3, or a total of 6 candles; and so on, until we have an 8 day progression of 1 + 3 + 6 + 10 + 15 + 21 + 28 + 36 = 120 candles, a familiar mathematical progression that seems to be oft used in the deeper meditations and connections of the Torah, and that we first learned about from Abraham, the Patriarch in his book Sefer Yetzirah, The Book of Formation.

Well, considering this, it is noteworthy that if we assume that all our candles or oil last metaphysically for 8 days, just as they did physically for the Maccabes, then in total we are lighting 120 lights. This correspond to both the 120 permutations of the Name Elohim and to the 120 years of Moses, whose soul is part and parcel with that of Moshiach in every generation.


In the same way, the Shamash candle lights would total 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36 lights and through the Shamash we are connecting to the 36 tzaddikim that sustain our word each time we light it, meaning that if our consciousness is there, they will be there for us as well. They are the helpers lighting the Chanukah lights for us.  Nonetheless, 120 + 36 or 156 candles would be metaphysically lit. This connection to 156 or 6 X 26 (the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is very important to the Chanukah meditations the Arizal will guide us through below as they will involve connecting to these 6 Tetragrammaton (יהוה) each day. Moreover, the Arizal explains that 156 is twice 78, the numerical value of mazal (fortune), an integral part of the lighting meditations as will be explained below.

The Arizal further explains that the eight days of Chanukah are, or end up, at the level of hod, the same as a brit milah whose 8 days expire at hod before the brit can be performed at the level of yesod. When we add the 36 lights for the 8 Shamash (servant candles) to the 120 of Moses illustrated above, our 8 day total is 156 lights. This is the numerical value for Yosef, who represents the level of Yesod. We can now more fully understand why Chanukah occurs during the 4 portions of Joseph, who was born in 2198 HC, exactly 3580 years before the year 5778, when Moshiach (numerical value 358) is supposed to be manifest in our world.

The Blessings

The Ignition to all the Blessings

day and nightWhen we start the blessing with the word Baruch, we need to keep in mind that it has the numerical sofit value of 708, which is the same as that of the 42 letters of the upper 42-Letter Name (מב), which is in actuality the ineffable Name of G-d (יהוה) with its letters spelled out through three iterations. This is no coincidence, as it is from this Name that the blessings flow downward through the 6 levels (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin and into our world.




L’hadleek Ner Chanukah

Regarding the Chanukah blessings on the words L’hadleek Ner Chanukah and the kavanot that we’ve learned from the Arizal, the 3 first letters Lamed (ל), Nun (נ) and Chet (ח), spell out in small cosmic windowgematria, 3, 5, 8 or 358, Mashiach.

The Arizal explains that initials in L’hadleek Ner Chanukah (to light the Chanukah candle) spell the word Nachal (נחל), a holy Name that means “stream or river,” and also “inheritance,” and it has a numerical value of 88, which when aided by a kolel of 1 equals 89, the value of Chanukah itself.

Nevertheless, the concept of a stream is very important because by lighting the candles with the right consciousness we are opening a stream of light (the energy of sustenance or shefa) from above into our lives and into the world. The inheritance is the Messiah (the Moshiach).

Cosmic_RiverAs further explained by the Arizal, the secret of the 3 letters N, CH. L and Nachal (נחל) comes  from the 3 words that comprise the 8th and 9th of the 13 Attributes of G-d : “Notzer Chesed L‘alefim.” He goes on to explain that the 8th sefira (level) or Binah (Imma /Understanding) is where we are drawing this upper light from. Moreover, a key secret here is that once the 8th level is tapped into, all 3 upper levels (Binah, Chochma and Keter) are at once activated and made available to us. A river of divine light and blessing can flow into our world if we attune ourselves to it during the blessing and candle lighting.

As we put ourselves into a state of unconditional love and stay focused on the endgame of bringing Moshiach, the first mediation we need to do is either envision or think about opening up the flowing river of light Nachal (נחל) from the upper reservoir of Binah, and its higher sources Chochma and Keter. The light descends through Binah into Zeir Anpin (the heavenly ladder that connects our world to Binah (the upper world). Here is where the very specific Names of G-d come in. We want to focus on them, instead of trying to picture dimensions for which we have no visual reference point. Fortunately the Arizal tells us exactly which combination of the Name to use. For example Zeir Anpin is represented by the aspect of the spelled-out Tetragrammaton (הא‐ואו‐הא יוד) called (Mah) of numerical value 45.

…This is very important…

We are further told that the proper with for us to combine Zeir Anpin with Binah in this instance is by combining the letter alef (E/א ) in the center of the spelled-out letter Vav (ואו) of the Tetragrammaton (הא‐ואו‐הא יוד) called (Mah) of numerical value 45 to the regressively spelled Name Ehyeh (א‐ אה ‐ אהי ‐אהיה) associated with Binah and of numerical value of 44. Together they combine in the energetic equation 45 + 44 = 89, giving us once again the value of Chanukah (חנוכה).

Please note that it is the Names that are important; the numbers just help us to understand a little of what is going on energetically in the spiritual framework.

It is very important that we grasp this unification because as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory explains it, through this very union of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) of numerical value 26 and the regressive Name Ehyeh (א‐ אה ‐ אהי ‐אהיה) that the (26 +44) or 70 Ministers of the 70 Nations are governed.

The Zohar tells us that at the end of the 70 years from the formation of Israel in 5708, all the Ministers (leaders) of those 70 nations will be replaced with Israel’s enemies, just as we see being played our around the world. This is why it is more crucial than ever that we become proper channels for the life force of G-d, and through the proper lighting of the 44 candles, we have the power to do just that.


(א‐ אה ‐ אהי ‐אהיה) and (יהוה)

26 + 44 = 70

The Light of Binah unites with the Light of Zeir Anpin fuels all 70 Nations

(א‐ אה ‐ אהי ‐אהיה) and (הא‐ואו‐הא יוד)

45 + 44 = 89

The Light of Binah unites with the expanded Light of Zeir Anpin and forms Chanukah

(Shefa flowing from Binah into Zeir Anpin)

chanukah 3 ehyh within YHVH

The Second Meditation:

Partially because the value of the word L’hadleek plus the kolel (1) = (179 +1) = 180, the Arizal tells us at this point in the blessing to meditate on the 3 upper aspects of the Tetragrammaton (Av, Sag, Mah), which together total (72+63+45) = 180.

Av (הי‐ויו-הי‐יוד) or 72

Sag (הי‐ואו-הי‐יוד) or 63

Mah (הא‐ואו-הא‐יוד) or 45

= 180

Any number times 10 indicates that number spreading throughout the 10 sefirot of the tree-of-life.  In this case, it is 18 (Chai, life), and as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory explains “All ladder_to_heavenTorah Light is spread by squaring,” so we see within the square root of 18: 4.2426. This is most significant because 424 is the value for “Mashiach Ben David” and 26 is the value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

Now, specific to the Chanukah blessing is that the spelled-out (gematria milui) value of the letters Nun (נון) and that of the Lamed (למד) of L’hadleek Ner is also 180, thus giving us yet another connection to “Mashiach Ben David and the tree-of-life.

From the 18 words of the 13 Attributes, the phrase “Notzer Chesed L‘alefim” meansHe preserves kindness for 2000 yearswhich is a hint that our time of exile for the past 2000 years is coming to a close, and if we add the 18 to it, we get 2018 CE (5778 HC), the year the tzaddikim have prophesied for the coming of the messiah and the final redemption (geula). It is also the year (2018 HC) that G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, our inheritance (Nachal, נחל).

Indeed, the word candle, Ner, (נר) has a numerical value of 250 and thus the 8 candles have a  collective value of 250 x 8 = 2000.

And when we add the 180 of Av, Sag, Mah to the 180 of L’hadleek Ner plus the kolel of 3 for the 3 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), we get 180 + 180 + 3 = 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach, which is what we should be mediating on when we recite L’hadleek Ner:

(הי‐ויו-הי‐יוד) (הי‐ואו-הי‐יוד)(הא‐ואו-הא‐יוד) and H’Mashiach.

(Receiving H’Mashiach)


chanukah 3 ehyh within YHVH

Chanukah 2 Lhadleek


Regarding Ner, the Arizal tells us to combine the Names Ehyeh, Elohim, and Adonai with YHVH on the 3 different levels (Av, Sag, and Mah) to draw down the light properly from Binah to Malchut:


3 YHVH = 250

Now the total numerical value of the 3 Names (אהיהאלהיםאדני) is 172, and when we add 1 for the kolel, it is 173, as in the small gematria numerical value for the 42-letter Name.

The Ari further explains that at the word Ner in the blessing we should concentrate on combining the 3 Names (אהיהאלהיםאדני) with the 3 simple (יהוה)’s. These 3 (יהוה)’s add up to 26 + 26 + 26 = 78, the gematria of Mazla, aramaic for mazal, fortune, which we want to draw into our lives when lighting the Chanukah candles. This process mimics the flow of the shefa, (life-giving light) that emanates from the 3 Tetragrammatons (יהוה) and flows from the Holy of Holies through the Gate of 42 into the Holy Temple and then our world.

Now the main point of the Arizal was that the 6 Names paired up together so that their energy complements and facilitates the transformation of the light (אהיהיהוה ,אלהיםיהוה ,אדנייהוה). They add up to 250, the value of Ner, candle, but if we add 6 as the kolel, we get 256, which is the value for both H’Aron (Ark of the Covenant) and for Aaron who lit the Menorah as a channel for us all.


chanukah oilSo when we recite Ner, we want to meditate on the 42-Letter name (the Ana B’koach), receiving mazal, letting  Aaron, the high priest and the only person in the Torah assigned the title Mashiach, be our channel to light the Menorah in our lives and world. Take your time and connect with the consciousness and with the unified Names.  Become the Rav, focus with your heart and a singular purpose. You are drawing down the Light-force of G-d; there is no need to rush through it.  The more you take your time and focus the more Light will be revealed.

together with the 6 Names merging (unified) together as follows.

אלהיםיהוה (Binah – Elohim)

אדנייהוה (Malchut – Adonai)

Chanukah1 EHYH + 3 YHVH

Chanukah 2 Ner




We draw the light of blessing down from Chochma to Binah to our world, Malchut. As the light of our candles ascend, the Light from Heaven retraces it back down to us anabkoach160-ksand our world, exploding like a bolt of lightning, which incidentally is exactly how lightning works — the earth takes the first action.

Now for the full understanding, we take the 3 Names Ehyeh, Elohim and Adonai plus the 3 Names Av, Sag, Mah from the L’hadleek Ner kavanot and numerically add them  (172 + 180) + 6 (kolel for the 6 Names) and get 358, Mashiach.

So completing the recitation of Baruch though Ner, we want to have in mind drawing down the light from the Upper 42-Letter Name to the Lower 42-Letter Name though the 3 (יהוה)’s and into the 3 Names (אהיהאלהיםאדני) and thus igniting the spark of Moshiach consciousness in all of us and spreading it throughout the 70 nations.

The Candle

The candle we’re lighting is the light of the Torah itself as evidenced by the spelled out, gematria milui of the letters Nun-Resh) of Ner (נר /candle): (ריש–נון) equals (106 + 510) = 616, which is the numerical value of H’Torah, which helps explain Proverb 6:23:

“A mitzvah is a candle, and the Torah is light.”

The Shamash

32 pathsThe Shamash, or 9th candle is much more than a simple “helper” candle. The 9th sefira is that of Chochma, Wisdom. and the unification from above that is associated with the 9th sefira is (יהוה) x (אהיה) or in numerical terms 26 x 21 = 546, which is the sum of the initials of all 10 sefirot, a clue that this unification helps us draw the energy down through all 10 sefirot (dimensions).

The value 546 is also the total value of the Names of the 3 Patriarchs whose names began with the letter Yud (י), which connects them to Chochma (wisdom), the 9th sefira: Isaac (208), Jacob (182), and Joseph (156).  It is likewise a connection to Israel, which has a value of 546 when the kolel for the 5 letters is included, and whose name is found 546 times in the Torah.

So as we light the Shamesh we should meditate to draw down the light through the 10 sefirot and to put joy in our hearts.

The 25th of Kislev

jelly donuts2Yet another connection between the kavanot and the words of the blessing is found between the 25 letters of the union of the 6 Names and the value of Ner, 250, since 250/10 = 25, but most important these would be the 25 letters that the Zohar says is missing for the completion of the Mishkan and the 25 words that we know are missing from the completion of the Torah, which is exactly (80,00025 words). It is also a connection between the 25 letters of the Sh’ma Israel phrase and the 25th of Kislev, as explained by the Zohar.

The next obvious further connection is between the 80,000 words and the 8 lights and nights of Chanukah, since the 4th root of the sum of all the words, letters, and verses of the Torah = 25 exactly. There are also 25 letters in lamed-vav (36) milui.

 The OiI

The word for eight (8) in Hebrew is shemonah, and a simple permutation of the letters in shemonah (שמנה) gives us hashemen. “the oil” (השמן), and also neshama (soul, נשמה), all of which have the latkas2numerical value of 395, that of the 5th word in the Torah, H’Shama’im (the Heavens).

And when we spell out the Shin-Mem-Nun (שין–מם–נון) root letters of the Oil they add up to 546, so we must keep in mind (Proverbs 27:9): “Oil and incense rejoice the heart,” and be joyful as we light the oil for that joy will spread through the 10 sefirot and be contagious throughout the world.

Proverbs 27:9 “Oil and incense rejoice the heart”

The 8 Nights of Lights

let there be lightFor every candle we light below, one is lit above. So for all the 156 metaphysical candles we light below plus 1 collective one (the kolel), another 157 are lit above, making 314 in total, and 314 is the numerical value of the Name of G-d Shadai (שדי) and also of Mettatron.  As for the 156 candles, it is the numerical value of Zion and as we said previously, Joseph, who represents Yesod of Malchut, where the light of Binah ends up on the 8th day. It is also the point where all the divine sustenance funnels into our lives and our world. Incidentally, Zion, of numerical value 156, is found 107 times in Tanakh and the sum of all the integers from 1 to 107 is 5778.

Moreover, if we consider all the cumulative lit Chanukah lights as a multiple of 8 days: 1 x 3 x 6 x 10 x 15 x 21 x 28 x 36 = 1008 then add 1 for the kolel, and double them for above and below, they total 2018 candles in all.  So in essence, each and every year, by fulfilling the mitzvot of lighting the Chanukah candles we’re preparing for the arrival of Moshiach in the year 2018 CE (5778 HC), our inheritance.

Chanukah Gelt

Even the parve chocolate gelt we give to our children on Chanukah connects to Mashiach, as the Aramaic word for gelt is Dami (דמי) of numerical value 54, and since 5778 is the sum of all the gelt 2integers from 1 to 107 and 5778 = 107 x 54, then 54, and thus Dami (Gelt), plays yet another role in connecting all of us to the coming of H’Mashiach, B’H very soon.

So, this Chanukah, become a tzaddik and light the candles with love in your heart and the intention to bring Mashiach to the world. Together, we will combine our light and make a real and lasting change in the world.  Together, we can be the Maccabees.

“For with Thee is the fountain of life; In Thy light do we see light.”  -Psalm 36:9

Stranded on Third!

Stranded or Appointed to Be on Third?

wsIn our past two articles we have revealed much about how to use G-d’s Name and Unconditional Love, but it also feels like we didn’t quite reveal everything. It also feels like desperation is settling into our world, and quickly overtaking us. It feels like we are facing the Kansas City Royals and left a man stranded on third. As the Mets and Toronto Blue Jays learned, one cannot go into extra innings against a powerful opponent who makes no errors. Since the opposing team is always in the right place at the right time, we only have one place to hit the ball: Out of the park! Yes, the situation is the same, only this time it is on an unprecedented scale. The stakes are the world… the time is the Final Redemption.

In the last three articles, and especially in our last one, “Choose Redemption Now,”  we illustrated how the Torah was designed to teach us to use the unification of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) and Adonai (אדני) and elevate it further with the higher Name Eyheh (אהיה) from Malchut to Zeir Anpin to Keter, all in the aspect of love, unconditional love. What is that love? It is not the (hopefully) reciprocated love we have for our husbands and wives. Neither is it the love we have for our parents as mandated by the Ten Commandments. Nor is it in thanks for all that they have done for us. It is closer to the love we have for our children that no one has mandated or told us we had to do. We do everything for them with this love. We help them, protect them, enable them to succeed, educate them or just please them. This is the unconditional love we are to feel for G-d and His instruction, the Torah. That includes everyone and everything in the universe.

For most of us that is a huge leap. It is “natural” and easy to feel that for our children, but it is unnatural to feel it for anyone else. That huge leap against is our nature. It is changing our world from where we are, from the inside out. It is precisely why it is demanded of us if we want to be part of the TEAM that is to figure in the upcoming final redemption. If it were easy, it would not be real. It would be just another fleeting illusion, another turn at bat against a strike-out king.

However, it is not an illusion. We have been shown how the quantitative numbers and values associated with all aspects of G-d’s Name and its components are explicitly based on the number 13, the numerical value of the Hebrew word for Love (Ahava, אהבה). We had to repeat throughout our articles about the singular importance of the Torah’s statement, “Love Thy neighbor as yourself,”ֹ found in Leviticus (Vayikra) 19:18. Now it is time to bring it home — to the home plate.

The phrase “Love Thy neighbor as yourself (וְאָהַבְתָּ לְרֵעֲךָ כָּמוֹךָ),” found in Leviticus (Vayikra) 19:18 has 13 letters (ואהבת‐לרעך‐כמוך). Just as there are exactly 1820 Tetragrammaton-s (יהוה) in the Torah, this phrase has the numerical gematria value of 1820 when the sofit value of the two final letter Cafs (ך) are added in. Obviously, they are connected. Even if the sages did not tell us this was the most important phrase in the Bible, we would have to take notice of its connection to G-d Name. Right?

Even so, given that there are exactly 1820 Tetragrammaton-s (יהוה) in the Torah and 91 Adonai-s (אדני) in the Torah and 7 Eyheh-s (אהיה) in the Torah, the simple sum (unification) of G-d’s Names is 1820 + 91 + 7 = 1918, as in this singularly important verse, Leviticus/Vayikra 19:18.

Tetragrammaton-s (יהוה) + Adonai-s (אדני) + Eyheh-s (אהיה)

1820 + 91 + 7 = 1918

Vayikra 19:18 = “Love Thy Neighbor”

Make no mistake about it, this verse the sages have told us encapsulates the entire Bible and is the entire essence of it, verse 19:18 of the 3rd Book is meant to connect with and unite the 1918 higher Names of G-d in the Torah, and more importantly to connect us to them.

The reason there is so much light and such a strong bond between us and our children is that we are emulating G-d and His love for us. If we would do that with our neighbors (and that includes our environment and everything in our universe), we would be connecting directly to G-d’s Name and His essence. Immediately we would feel the love all around and see the world through different eyes. It would be a paradigm shift.   Yet, we fight it—fight making the shift—with the very core of our being. It is as if we take “being one with the light force of G-d” as being something bad. We deem it self-deceptive as if it were all due to the power of illusion. Such is the psyching-out strength of our opponent.

daniel murphyWe do not make the shift because we do NOT BELIEVE we can do so. We do NOT believe we can win. Baseball is all about the energy. This is why the same team can go on an 11 game winning streak, followed by a 10 game losing one. It is why a player in the zone, e.g. Daniel Murphy, can hit homeruns all through the playoffs against the best pitchers in the league. Then produce next to nothing positive but the costliest errors in the World Series. It was all a matter of belief or lack of. In a way, the physics of baseball, speed, distance and accuracy are truly superhuman; they are spiritual. Given the right energy, everything clicks. Off by an inch at 100 mph, a homerun is a strike, an out, or a blooper. One simply has to believe and take a leap of faith.

G-d gave us many tools to help us believe, Names to use (connect with) to see miracles and technology that we can expose to convince ourselves in a higher power. These are all given to EMPOWER us.

In our previous article  we mentioned that there were two ways the kabbalists expressed the value of the highest of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) in the Tree-of-Life. One was 100(0) as completion of the 10 dimensions with their 10 sub-dimensions. Another was through the numerical value of Keter, the Name of that Crowning dimension of G-d, 620. The value 620 associated with Keter is also the number 20, which in Hebrew is spelled esrim (עשרים) with the numerical value 620. This concept is found in the 620 letters of the Ten (10) Commandments and the 62 letter Yud-s (י), which is 1/10th of those is 620 letters, and whose total value is 620, but whose spelled out (יוד) value is 20. This amazingly matches up with the Ten (10) Commandments being located in the 20th (!) Chapter of Exodus. The placement is perfect.

Physicists teach us that the greater universe is comprised of 10 dimensions. The kabbalists teach us that those 10 dimensions are divided into 3 types of energy known as “the Tree-of-life.” When spiritual things are set in 3s, they are a connection to the 3 columns of the Tree-of-life structure of the universe. Thus in this 3-word, 13-letter phrase (ואהבת‐לרעך‐כמוך) phrase, whose standard gematria value is 820, the 3 letter Caf-s (כ) must also be a reference to the Tree-of-life, i.e. to the Keter (כתר) of each column. Each of the Caf-s (כ) has a numerical value of 20, associated with Keter, and when the letter is spelled out (כף) it has the value 820. Let us pause for a moment. The letter (כ) and its value associated with the highest dimension, that of G-d, it also has the value associated with the unconditional love of “love thy neighbor.” This cannot possibly be coincidental. Do we want to BELIEVE what the Almighty tells us, or do WE WANT to believe what our opponent is telling us? He tells us his way, that we are losers, destined to die and are incapable of change. He is trying hard to dissuade us from using our energy to win. It is all about the energy that we are TOLD to use.  Have you ever met or seen a highly successful person who did not completely believe in him/her self and his/her abilities?

Nevertheless and not coincidentally, the first and last letters of the short 13-letter phrase (ואהבת‐לרעך‐כמוך) are also speaking to us G-d’s way, as Caf-Vav (כו), being 26 in standard gematria, is always representative of His Name, the Tetragrammaton (יהוה). Moreover, the final two letters of the phrase are also Caf-Vav (כו). Can this possibly be coincidental, or is it a DIRECT pointer by the Almighty as to what we need to see and do?

Furthermore, in gematria sofit (וכ) is 506, the numerical value of the first verse of the Ana B’koach, or the 42-Letter Name of G-d. 506 is also the numerical value of anabkoach160-ksboth the phrase Ahavat Chinam (Unconditional Love) and in its complete gematria form, the value of the name Moshiach Ben David (!).

Even ignoring the other 79,972 words in the Torah and even the Ten commandments, all we have to do is connect with 3 little words, just 13 of the 304,805 letters of them. Yet, our world grows darker by the day and the evil spiraling outward from the Mideast grows stronger. It draws more and more to the abyss of its black hole daily, sucking the vitality of our collective consciousness at an ever-faster rate.

If we set aside the 3 Cafs (כ) in the 13 letter phrase, the remaining letters total 760. It may just be coincidence. However, according to the tsaddikim the next gateway to unconditional love and Moshiach consciousness opens in the year 5778 HC, whose square root is 76.01312… By the way, the last time that gateway was open was the year 1312 BCE or 2448 HC, exactly 66.6 jubilee years ago.

We could go on and on from the Divine play-book with simple meanings derived from these 13 letters. An example is the first 6 letters of “love thy neighbor phrase (ואהבת‐לרעך‐כמוך) “being equal to 444 which is the gematria of the phrase “from generation to generation,” while 444 x 13 plus the kolel for the 6 letters equals 5778, .

There is also a Mem-Bet (מב), representing the Mem-Bet Shmot or 42-Letter Name, embedded in the 13 letter phrase (ואהבת‐לרעך‐כמוך). The sum of the square roots of all 3 words happens to be 72.4220 which represents not only the 72 Names of G-d and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, Both are found together in the mystical breastplate of the Cohen HaGadol, having the value (422) of the Hebrew word for 70, (שבעים) shibim.

G-d’s timing is perfect. He has scheduled this game at the most auspicious time in the history of the world. As delineated in The Divine Calendar, 5778 x .5778 or The Divine Calendar57782 equals 3338.5, which gives us the exact year and month that the First Holy Temple was destroyed, while the number 422 gives us 422 BCE, the Hebrew calendar year 3338 HC yet again. Furthermore, the Second Temple stood for 422 years until 70 CE, which also means that from the construction of the First Temple to the destruction of the Second Temple 903 years passed. It so happens, or is it divinely designed, that 903 equals the sum of all the integers through 42, just like the 90,100 Yud-s (י), Heih-s( ה) and Vav-s (ו) equal all the integers through 424. Elegantly neat… and PERFECT.

G-d is making it easy for us to believe. His fingerprints are on the design for the mathematical substructure of His Word. Once we do believe, the rest will come, for THEN we will be empowered. The Rav spent countless hours trying to convince us that all we needed was “certainty.” That is just another name for BELIEF. That means taking G-d at His word.

The connection to the 42-Letter Name always goes to the heart of the Torah’s design and function. Consider the 90,100 Yud-s (י), Heih-s (ה) and Vav-s (ו) from which the 1820 Tetragrammaton-s (יהוה) come from and whose total 90,100 is equivalent to all the integers from 1 to 424, the numerical value of Moshaich Ben David (!). 90,100 is the sum of 3002 and 102 which is the numerical equivalent of 90,100 = ( ש)Shin2 + (י)Yud2 .

Atbash is one of the simplest gematria ciphers, whereby the Hebrew alphabet is reversed and Alef is switched to Tav and Shin to Bet and so on. It is quite often superbly revelatory. In this case, 90,100 = ( ש)Shin2 + (י)Yud2 = or (מ)Mem2 and (ב)Bet2 .

We now have shown some of G-d’s technology behind the phrase to “Love Thy neighbor” and how G-d’s Name is not only written into the phrase numerous times, but also is throughout the entire Torah in a way that our soul can tune into. It is written and placed in a way that illustrate to us how to connect ever higher to G-d’s Name and to the MOSHIACH CONSCIOUSNESS. This is necessary for the upcoming opportunity to play an integral part in the final Redemption. We have also seen how the timing of the final Redemption has been hard-wired by the Almighty into the Torah’s technology and the history of our civilization. Furthermore, we have seen that G-d’s message to us has been always crystal clear, though not necessarily understood in prior ages as it is to be understood at this age. Now, at the end of this age it is revealed to US, TO THIS GENERATION in no uncertain ways for a singular vital reason. NOW the Almighty reveals to US, this FATEFUL generation, the very tools to connect to the Light. In His “playbook,” the Bible, He gives us His Names and tells us HOW to use them to reach the necessary winning mindset, the consciousness of unconditional love. This is all Divinely designed in order for us to become integral parts of the redemptive process. This has been laid down from ancient times, since He has chosen a nation to be His special TEAM, a “peculiar treasure” to do this service.

“Now therefore, if you will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then you shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine;” —Exodus/Shemot 19:5

Now, it is up to us. Do we dash the last 90 feet to home plate? Or do we wait on third, hoping someone else will hit us home, as we face the toughest opponent in history. He is out to psych us out. We are a TEAM, we are in it TOGETHER. This is our very purpose. That means we all have to be fired up with wanting to win. We have to want it bad enough to forego our selfish desires and embrace unconditional love, connect to G-d’s Names and embrace G-d with our obedience to His Contract /Covenant with all strength, might and soul. Like Daniel Murphy, we are all “free agents” in this game. We can choose on which team we want to be.

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before thee life and death, the blessing and the curse; therefore choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed: “— Deuteronomy/Devarim 30:19

42 stadium1 42 stadium2 Who do you think really put the number 42 as a memorial over every major league baseball stadium in America. Or on our foreheads? In Exodus 13:9, G-d said, “And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thy hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the law of the LORD may be in thy mouth; for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.” The 2 letter Shins (ש) in tefillin shel rosh is 42 and the 7 Vavs (ו) that comprise the 2 letter shins (ש) are also 7 * 6 = 42. These are the 2 Shins (ש) in the equation 90,100 = ( ש)Shin2 + (י)Yud2

“And it shall be for a sign unto thee”— Exodus/Shmot 13:9

Players do not lose games, teams do, and this World’s Series is not over yet. We are in the last inning. Every player has been Divinely chosen, i.e. “appointed” to be on this team and “be a blessing.” We can pool, share and work with our energy and not against our energy. The Almighty has given us that energy to use… for good or bad. It is our choice. The key is to BELIEVE what the Almighty, the Owner, Creator and Coach of the team tells us to use. Collectively we can make that leap of faith by taking Him at His Word, and not doing it “our way.” By the way, there is only one game on this planet. That is the game between good and evil. We are coming up to the final game.

Think about what is going on all over America today and look at the date Jackie Robinson (42) opened up baseball, America’s pass-time, the year before Israel became a nation and the 70 year final countdown. The gates were opening and change was happening.  Those gates are closing and things are changing again.

The Rav, like all the kabbalists before him had 3 basic messages for us that he repeated over and over again: “Have Certainty, Let Go, and Connect to Unconditional Love.” That has been G-d’s message to us all along. It is still the same eternal message.

It is time to get out of the dug-out and onto the field.


Happy Thanksgiving to All,

May we all be thankful for what we have, for what G-d has given us, and for the opportunity He is giving us. May that thanks be converted to action and unconditional love.

Choose Redemption Now

YHVHWe know all the numbers, values and quantities in the Torah must have meaning and a purpose for the Creator. We hope we can gain some insight into these properties of the Torah and from them gain a glimpse into the spiritual workings of the universe. Occasionally though, by His grace we receive a true epiphany about G-d’s intentions, which means that for an instant we enter the realm of Binah for we are touched by true understanding. In our previous two articles, “The Time to Fight Back Has Come “ and “Choose NOW the Way You Should Go!,“ we discussed the connections with the 1820 explicit Names of G-d (יהוה) found in the Torah. Association of the number 1820 with the numerical value for the phrase “Love thy neighbor” with its inherent message of unconditional love was pretty obvious. So was the fact that 1820 is 10 times 182, the numerical value of the biblical name Jacob (יעקב), kabbalistically representing the central (balanced) column of the Tree-of-life. Other associations with 1820 being equal to 70 x 26 (the numerical of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) were extremely important too, but these associations still did not get to the essential character as to why there had to be 1820 explicit Names of G-d (יהוה) in the Torah. Why not 1821, 1826 or even 2018 for that matter?

What was G-d’s reasoning?

We cannot really call it reasoning, because we cannot begin to fathom anything on that level. Even the concept of fathoming does not exist in that exalted existential state. Nevertheless, we could glimpse a reflection of G-d’s thought process if only we could understand the purpose as to why the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) had to be written exactly 1820 times in the Torah. After all, we are not talking about any old word in the Torah — we are speaking about G-d’s Name itself.

As we started off our original discussions on the matter, we stated that there were exactly 90,100 Yuds (י), Heihs (ה) and Vavs (ו) in the Torah, which combine to form precisely 1820 Tetragrammatons (יהוה), utilizing exactly 7280 of those 90,100 letters. Moreover, the number 90,100 is the exact sum of all the integers from 1 to 424 which is the value of none other than Moshiach Ben David, a very significant concept for us to be sure. Nevertheless 1820 = 91 x 20, and the highest sefira (dimension), that of G-d Himself, is Keter, which is represented kabbalistically and energetically by two simple numbers, 20 and 100 and by extension multiples of 100 (0). In Hebrew, the word for 20, esrim (עשרים) has the same numerical value as Keter (כתר, 620 ) and 100 represents the completion of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life including their 10 sub-sefirot per level.

YHVH gold

That said, we notice that the 90,100 Yuds (י), Heihs (ה) and Vavs (ו) give us 91 x 20 Tetragrammatons (יהוה), which form 1820 words comprised of 7280 letters into a total sum of 9100 energetic symbols. This is no mathematical sleight of hand, because changing the number of Tetragrammatons (יהוה) by even one, cuts asunder the internal structure of these equations to pieces and renders their symmetrical beauty into meaningless chaos. So why 91?


91 x 20



It is 91 because it has to be 91.

It has to be 91 because we cannot pronounce the ineffable and all-powerful Name of G-d (יהוה). Only the Cohanim Hagadolim (High Priests) that were of the purest of hearts were allowed to pronounce this profound Name. That was done only in the Holy of Holies during the times the First and Second Holy Temples existed and then only once a year on Yom Kippur and only in connection with asking forgiveness for all Israel. We must suffice with the written version of the Name (יהוה) as our connection to the upper worlds. However, G-d did give us a way to connect deeper during the rest of the year and during all those years when the Temples were no longer standing. He instructed us to pronounce the Name Adonai (אדני) every time we encountered and read aloud the Holy Name (יהוה). In so doing we can draw down the energy to sustain our world at a level and frequency that we can handle.


The Tetragrammaton (יהוה) of numerical value 26 coupled with Adonai (אדני) of value 65.

(26 + 65) = 91


This is why the Torah had to have the Name (יהוה) t 1820 times in it. This is why the Zohar tells us to combine the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) of numerical value 26 coupled with Adonai (אדני) of value 65 in the above form (יאהדונהי). The Zohar exhorts to meditate on this combined Name every time we say Amen (אמן) of numerical value 91. In so doing we elevate the blessing from our world to the upper world. In so doing, we also bestow blessings on the reciter of the blessing and on ourselves as well, as we become the channels of elevation. It would be foolish and a waste of precious spiritual energy not to say amen every time we hear a blessing uttered. Of the 304,805 letters of the Torah, G-d invested 30% of them (90,100) to bring us this concept. It must have been important to Him—for He signed it with his Name יהוה x 1820 times.


G-d did not want us to passively read His Torah. He wanted us to use it, benefit from it and actively participate in it for a glorious reason. He wanted it to be a channel for us and for us to be a channel of it. G-d wanted and wants us to download the energy of unconditional love and the energy of Moshiach Ben David each and every time we see His Name (יהוה). As Abraham’s, Isaac’s and Jacob’s progeny, He wants us to “be a blessing” and spread the blessing of that unconditional love in this world. He wants us also to actively upload our blessings to the upper worlds, thus strengthening the connections between the spiritual and physical worlds each time.

G-d has an even higher Name, a Name He first showed to Moses when He said, “I AM that I AM.” That Name is Ehyeh (אהיה). The Arizal explained that when that Exalted Name is spelled out fully on all 3 levels, it has a value of 455. It is yet another of the factors of 1820 in that 4 x 455 = 1820, meaning that whenever we connect properly to the Name (יהוה) in the Torah we can connect all the way to the highest dimensions and help realize our and the world’s full potential.




ahavaSpeaking of factors, there are an exceeding large number of them in 1820. Factors are the specific integers that when multiplied together give us a specific product. We see this with the only factors of 26 which are 2 and 13. Appropriately, the number 13 is the numerical value of ahava (אהבה/love). Similarly, the only factors of 65 are 5 and 13, and the only factors of 91 are 7 and 13. This connection to love and all the aspects of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) cannot be coincidental, especially since we can apply this proportion of 5/7, or (יאהדונהי)/(אדני), to the mathematically independent quantity of (יהוה) in the Torah and get 5/7 x 1820 = 1300 or 13 x 100.

And just like the sum of all the integers from 1 to 424 being equal to 90,100, the sum of all the integers from 1 to 13 is equal to 91.


Love is at the heart and source of it all.

2 x 13 = 26 (יהוה)

5 x 13 = 65 (אדני)

7 x 13 = 91 (יאהדונהי), Amen

5/7 X 1820 = 1300 or 13 x 100

(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13) = 91


13 is the unifying element within the Divine equations

13 is the value of Echad (One,אחד )


It is all about unification.

Unifications are a form of binding or bonding between two forces. At the level that we can conceptualize them, we can think of these forces as anthropologically male and female or electromagnetically positive and negative. In a very simplified explanation, we meditate on the Names binding them one to another then, binding our physical world (malchut) associated with Rachel and Adonai (אדני) with the 6 bundled lower dimensions of the spiritual word associated with Jacob and Zeir Anpin (יהוה). From there, we need to bind them to the higher realm of keter with Ehyeh (אהיה). Then the process goes step by step higher through all 4 levels of divine existence until we are one with our souls and they are bound with the endless (Ein Sof).  If done properly, we are jettisoning our physical desires and the natural drives, and become one with the spiritual world, with the light-force of G-d. Without the 42-Letter Name and the unifications, especially that of יאהדונהי) 91 = (יהוה) 26 + (אדני) 65) we are but trapped within our own world, yet to wake up within the Matrix.

The more of us who wake up, the greater our chances of receiving the Geulah will be when the appropriate window of time finally opens. After waiting nearly 5778 years it would be a shame to sleep through it. This is precisely why all this technology is coming to us at this moment, being made available to everyone at once. For thousands of years, only a very select few were privy to these secrets and revelations and charged with the responsibility of upholding the structure of our world and its spiritual gateways. Now the technology is available to all who seek it and the responsibility belongs to all of us.  It will take 600,000 of us.

Every Number Tells a Story.

torah scrollThis simple equation of 2,5,7 and 13 based on G-d’s Name (יהוה) tells us a story, one that leads us from the 1820 Israelites who disappeared from the first to the second census (Exodus 38:26 to Numbers 26:51) taken in the Torah of the Israelites before and after their journeys through the desert. The first census counted 603550 Israelites at Sinai and the second 601,730 who survived the battles and plagues. Both numbers counted 600,000, but the first counted an additional 1775 x 2, or twice the value of the 27 Hebrew letters. The second, counted after the 42 journeys, included only an additional 1730 or 10 times the small gematria value (173) of the 42 Letter Name of G-d. After all the 12 tribes were totaled up, some significantly gained, some lost members. The difference between them was exactly (!) 1820.

It was as if the missing 1820 represented the Name (יהוה) that became concealed once the Israelites entered the promised land. After Solomon died, the 12 tribes zohar2became divided into 2 and 10. The “2,” Benjamin and Yehudah, comprised the Kingdom of Yehudah. The rest, the 10 tribes, comprising the Kingdom of Israel were eventually exiled. Thus we find in the simple equation of 2 x 5 equals the 10 tribes and 5 + 7 equals the full 12 tribes obviously while 5 x 7 equals 35, the value of Yehudi (the Jews/ יהודי), representing the Tribes of Yehuda and Benjamin. Then 2 + 5 + 7 = 14 (Yad/דוד the hand of G-d and David), while the sum of the main Israeli leaders (Moshe, Joshua, Shaul, David, Shlomo and Moshiach) total 1820. And finally 2 x 5 x 7 = 70, as in the 70 years of King David, the 70 years of Exile, of the Temples, Patriarchs, etc. and finally, as described by the Zohar, the final 70 years from Israel becoming a nation in 5708 HC to 5778 HC (2018 CE), the prophesied date for the Geulah, final redemption.

It goes back to the beginning.

The first word of the Torah is Bereshit (בראשית) of numerical value 913. The number 913 oddly enough contains both 91 and 13 and when doubled, 913 x 2, it equals 1826 less 6 for the 6 letters in the word, thus 1820. Even more significant is that when we utilize gematria miliui and spell out the 6 letters in Bereshit, we get 412+510+111+360+407 = 1820.

This is the most important unification:

26 (יהוה) and 65 (אדני) equal 91 (יאהדונהי)

G-d has even helped us along in the unification in that He has placed His Name Adonai (אדני) a total of 91 times in the Torah.

And given all that, just so there would be no room for skepticism in our prayer and meditations, G-d Created the Torah with exactly 1729 words of numerical value 26 and if we were to sum up all the integers between 26 and 65 (i.e. 27+28….63+64) they would equal exactly 1729. Moreover, if we were to sum all the integers from 26 to 65 (i.e. 26+27+28….63+64+65) they would equal exactly 1820, the exact amount of Tetragrammatons (יהוה) in the Torah. Moreover, these are not the only mathematical oddities linking 13, 19 and 1820, there are several others, such as the sum of the 13 arithmetic sequences, counting respectively by 1, by 2, by 3, until 13 are equal to 1820.

1    2    3     4    5      6    7     8    9    10   11   12  13

2   4    6     8   10   12  14    16  18   20  22  24

3   6    9    12   15   18  21   24  27  30  33

4   8    12  16  20  24  28   32  36 40

5   10  15  20  25  30  35   40 45

6   12  18  24  30  36  42  48

7   14  21  28  35  42  49

8   16  24  32 40 48

9   18  27  36 45

10 20 30 40

11 22 33

12 24


= 1820

And the sum of all the 7 integer sequences of 1 to 5, then 1 to 10, every 5 through 1 to 35 (as in Yehudi) also equals exactly 1820.

That is astonishing, considering there is no mathematical reason these numbers should be interconnected this way. Then hidden within all these oddities, as if G-d was drawing our attention to 13, 91 and the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is a coded secret. It is being opened up to us now because we are the generation to whom it is relevant. When we add all the integers from 1 to 91 and divide them by 91, we get 46, the numerical value of Amah (אמה), or cubit, as in the sacred, ancient cubit used to build the ancient structures and needed for the Future Holy Temple. As it happens, this sacred cubit derived from the value of the expansion of the Tetragrammatons (יהוה) into the 4 aspects of G-d, 27.5 inches, is composed of the digits (2,7,5) in the divine unification 2 (13) + 5 (13) = 7 (13) or:

(יאהדונהי) = (יהוה) + (אדני)

The Ramchal explains that the four expansions of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) have such “great holiness [that] their power is limitless. All existence is bound to them from beginning to end.”

Av (יוד‐הי‐ויו‐הי) of numerical value 72

Sag (יוד‐הי‐ואו‐הי) of numerical value 63

Mah (יוד‐הא‐ואו‐הא) of numerical value 45

Ban (יוד‐הה‐וו‐הה) of numerical value 52

The total value of these 4 names that represent the totality of the 10 sefirot spelled out in 39 letters is 232, and 232 is “Ad Adi Ad” (עד‐עדי‐עד) or “eternity of eternities” as expressed in the Sefer Yetzirah 1:5.

(232 + 39 + 4) = 275.

275/10 = 27.5

And since 275/10 sefirot = 27.5 we have the secret measure of the Holy cubit, 27.5 inches, as dictated by the Holy Name of G-d Himself.


The Hidden Factor in G-d’s Name


Nonetheless, there are 23 different factors of 1820, amazingly just like the 23 pairs of chromosomes in the human body (!).

1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 10, 13, 14, 20, 26, 28, 35, 52, 65, 70, 91, 130, 140, 182, 260, 364, 455, 910

There are a lot of interesting and significant Biblical numbers built into the number 1820, but what brings chills is that when the prime kolel is added, all 23 of them sum to 2889. This is the date The Divine Calendarof the exact midpoint in the life of King David in 2889 HC and also the exact midpoint in the G-d-given divine calendar from Adam to Moshiach and the Geulah/Redemption in 5778 HC (2018 CE).

Throughout the Torah there are exactly 91 words and names that are duplicated often for seemingly no reason whatsoever, and yet the 42nd (connecting to the 42-Letter Name of G-d that has been said by the tsaddikim that its understanding will bring us the redemption), of those 91 words is G-d’s Name (יהוה).

PiBook6Extraordinary parallels exist in the Torah to Noach, whose father, Lamekh, lived 777 years and who gave birth to Noach, the 10th generation in the lineage of Adam, at age 182. Of the 91 doubled words in the Torah, 7 are found in parshat Noach, in which the animals were saved in groups of 7 by 2 (pairs) or by couples (2), depending on whether they were clean or unclean. And just as the primordial mathematical constant phi18 = 5778.000, the 18th unique doubled words (טרף‐טרף), found when the brothers were telling Jacob that Joseph’s coat was torn and bloodied from wild animals, has a standard gematria value of 578 and a sofit gematria value of 2018.

So is it coincidental that when counting by two(2), as in the doubled pairs, Noach’s pairs of animals, and the pairs of 13 that make up the divine unification of G-d’s Name that the consecutive numbers 18 and 20 come to represent …1820… and in reverse …2018… ?


It appears that G-d’s Name is indeed extremely and significantly important to us. It appears an average 33 times in each portion, once every 44 words. It appears that the Torah was designed around His “redemptive” Name (יהוה)… and function… that we may fully and properly connect to Him for divine Redemption. Could He have made this quintessential lesson any easier for us?

He spells out His redemptive Name in connection with the first Geulah /Redemption:

And I will take you to Me for a people, and I will be to you a G-d; and you shall know that I am the L-RD [יהוה] your G-d, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. — Exodus 6:7

And spells out His redemptive Name in connection with the last Geulah/Redemption:

So shall you know that I am the L-RD [יהוה] your God, dwelling in Zion My holy mountain; then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. —Joel 4:17

As always, the choice is ours to make… unconditional love , Moshiach, Redemption… it is all there for us to CHOOSE. He instructs us the way we should go:

Thus saith the L-RD [יהוה], your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the L-RD [יהוה] your God, who teaches you for your profit, who leads you by the way that you should go. —Isaiah 48:17

Be one of the 600,000.  Be part of the unification.  Choose redemption.


Choose NOW the Way You Should Go!

In the previous article “Time to Fight Back” we advised that the final 70 years prophesied in the Zohar and elsewhere is drawing to an end in 2 (!) years. That would be 5778 in the Hebrew calendar year, or 2018 CE. Throughout the hundreds of articles and in books we have published, we have shown extensive evidence of the inevitability of those dates having profound significance for us all. Therefore, we have only 2 years left in which to fathom it all. Here are two more examples of the Torah’s revelation of this date for our edification.

YHVHThere are exactly 90,100 Yud(י), Heis (ה) and Vavs(ו)in the Torah, which combine to form precisely 1820 Tetragrammatons (יהוה). Given that 820 is the standard gematria value of the famous verse that Hillel and other sages have said encapsulates the entire Torah, paraphrased as “Love they neighbor as thyself,” (Vayikra 19:18) and also that a more obscure gematria of that self-same verse has the exact valuation of 1820, G-d may be giving us a message hidden in His Name.

As we said in “Time to Fight Back” we are already in the 68th of the final 70 years. The word for “life” in Hebrew has a numerical value of 68, so at the end of life as we know it, ONLY UNCONDITIONAL LOVE can save us.


“Love thy neighbor as thyself.”

 Some of us may get the message, some may shrug their shoulders, so G-d, who loves us unconditionally, whose Name (יהוה) is mentioned 1820 times in the Torah, wanted to clarify it a bit more in order that we may “get the message.” As it happens the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) is 26 and 1820 = 70 x 26, possibly meaning that at the end of the 70 years every single one of the 1820 Names will be used up, or perhaps activated. At the very least it is a sure connection between 70 years and the Name of G-d. If we subtly reverse the digits in 1820 we get 2018.

This is very similar to the two central letters at the heart of the 42-letter Name of G-d, Resh (r) and Tzaddi (צ), whose ordinal values are 20 and 18 respectively. And these 2 letters are the central part of the word Brit (ברית ) or Covenant, spelled out in this central 4th line of the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name).



It appears G-d likes to hide or reveal this knowledge in plain sight right in the midpoints, just like in Abraham’s Covenant of Halves with G-d in 2018 HC, and just like in the midpoint of King David’s 70 year life in 2889 HC, exactly in the halfway point from Adam to 5778 (2018 CE): 2889 x 2 = 5778. The kabbalists explain this path from Adam to Moshiach, through David, as the reason why the Alef-Dalet and Mem in the name Adam (אדם) represent Adam-David-Moshiach. This is also why the complete sofit gematria value of Alef-Dalet and Mem is 2019, the year that begins the new calendar of the Covenant.

Further, another example of G-d using the midpoint of some divine Name or creation is found in the midpoint of the letters and words in the pictographic 67th Psalm, the Menorah with which we count during the 49 days of the Omer. On the 25th day, midway through the counting, the sum of the gematria values of the words and/or letters counted is exactly 5778, including the kolel for the 25 days. Just as astonishing, while the sum of the square roots of those 25 words is 345, the numerical value of Moses (מהש), the sum of the square roots of the 24 words prior to the midpoint is 333.078 or 3330 years as in 66.6 jubilee years that stretch precisely from the giving of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 to the year of Moshiach in 5778, represent the two times that an opening to the Tree-of-life consciousness is being made available to us. As for the 78 in 333.078, Rav Brandwein explained that the initials (ח ע) of Etz Chaim,(עץ‐חיים), the Tree-of-life, add up to 70 + 8, and most specifically he said it represented the 78 that we find in the number 5778 and the Tree-of-life he hoped we would achieve in the year 5778.

Now, back to the 1820 Tetragrammatons (יהוה), where we see that 1820 is the number of letters in the 28 prophetic verses of Ezekiel 37 about the “dry bones” and the geula in the end of days.

Earlier we mentioned the 90,100 Yud(י), Heis (ה) and Vavs(ו) in the Torah and while 1820 = 91 x 20, the number 90,100 is the exact sum of all the integers from 1 to 424 and most significantly for us and our salvation, 424 is the value of none other than Moshiach Ben David. Once again, we see the entire Torah has been designed to help bring us and lead us to the Tree-of-Life consciousness, with unconditional love, and into the arms of Moshiach Ben David in 2018 CE.

Moreover, it just occurred to me that if there were 90,100 Yud(י), Heis (ה) and Vavs(ו) in the Torah, forming 1820 Tetragrammatons (יהוה), which would use 7,280 of those 90,100 letters, then, the remaining Yud(י), Heis (ה) and Vavs(ו) would number 82,820.

Maybe it is all a coincidence. But given all that we know, given all that is at stake, and given the precarious state of the world right now, do you want to take that chance?

Besides the connection to the Tree-of-life, there is another important word in the Torah that has the dubious value of 78, the Flood (מבול). We have a choice for how the next 2 years will end up for noah's arkus personally. It all depends on which consciousness we choose during the difficult times that are rapidly descending upon us. The Tree-of-life or Binah consciousness for those that choose it will be as Nirvana. As for the Flood — well…

And speaking of the portion of Noach, the phrase “40 days and 40 nights” has the exact same gematria value as the phrase “70 years” as used in the Torah (ושבעים‐שנ‐ה). It is 778 up to the final Hey (ה), which has a numerical value of 5, further implying a designed reference to 5-778. By the way, the very first time the 5-778 value phrase for 70 years is utilized in the Torah is in the 5th chapter of Genesis with Lamekh (למך) — kabbalistic code for king (melech, מלך) — who lived for 777 years, as discussed with Rav Brandwein of blessed memory.

And it’s even more significant that the next time it was used was in paragraph 42, at Genesis 12:4, when Abraham was “70 years and 5.

Why am I going on and on with these redundant numbers? Because the Torah does. Because G-d does — and because I love you. There are only 2 (!) years left. Will the 70 years end in 5777, the beginning of 5778, the end of 5778, or the advent of 2019? We do NOT know. When will the last moment come in which to make the most profound choice of our existence? We do NOT know. But I do NOT want any of us to be on wrong side of that deadline. The desire to receive for one’s self alone feels so good. It is exactly why the choice to fight our nature, our natural inclinations, is so difficult. This is also why it is so imperative not to trust ourselves to wait until the very last moment to make the right choice we need to make NOW.

As a culture we have failed over and over again for 5776 years so far. As individuals we do not have to do that. We are shown over and over again how the Torah could not have been created by Man, how the Names of G-d can be tapped into by anyone to bend and change personal reality in a positive way, and how G-d gave us a definitive calendar of pre-ordained events in which to do it. However, we cannot give anyone certainty about making a personal choice. We will either have to find that within ourselves, or take a leap of faith. We can hold your hand, and gladly will do so, but in the end each one of us are the ones who have to jump, to make that shift in consciousness against everything our physical senses are longing for. Help is available.
