The Prime Directive

To have faith is to believe in G-d. To believe in G-d is to believe that everything has a purpose, a reason for being.  That begins with the numbers and ends with us.  There is no physicality without numbers because numbers describe the size and pathways of matter. There is no physicality or spirituality without energy and the numbers represent that energy, bridging the gap between the two worlds.  More than just descriptions of the energy’s strength, frequency and amplitude, numbers are also the portals that link the two worlds. They also mark our time and our place in both history and our universe.  Given their significance, how can they be random? There not. And once we understand that, we can begin to harness them. Once we truly understand that nothing is random we can start working the system, rather than let the system work us.

We have seen repeated how there are digit sequences built into the primordial mathematical constant Pi, which by bending straight lines into a circles and spheres gives our physical world its shape and also by bending time gives it its cyclical nature.  We have seen how those sequences relate directly to the Divine Calendar and how both Pi and those sequences have been integrated into the Torah.  We have seen how Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that gives shape to the natural spiraling growth in all aspects of our universe, integrally connects to the Torah and to the Divine Calendar.  We have seen how the very structure of our solar system can be broken down into a very few specific numbers that artificially repeat over and over again, and also relate directly to the Torah and the Divine Calendar.  They all integrate like one gigantic clock mechanism, one that cannot be carved out by random nature.

We have seen how the quantitative dimensions of the Torah have a multifaceted purposeful design with an inhuman precision. We have seen how the sequential integers both inside and outside those quantitative dimensions can be summed up to reveal the spiritual gateways, linkages, and portals between the worlds. We have seen how viewing the numbers in multiple dimensions by squaring and cubing them and even raising them to higher powers reveals the same symmetry, as does stacking them in pyramids in both 2 and 3 dimensions, as does packing them into geometric shapes like the 541 units that form a 12-gonal star, the Magen David, exceptional in that the numerical value of Israel is 541.  Coincidental in that there are 541 rooms in the Capitol building in Washington, and noteworthy in that we have seen the border dimensions of the state of Israel also match up with these highly symmetrical and redundantly coded numbers.

There is one set of numbers, though, a subset of the integers, that is considered more primal than all the rest.  These are numbers that have no factors other than themselves and One.  In other words, they cannot be reduced by division. They are the Prime Numbers.  Once again, as they done with every aspect of physicality we have shined a spiritual light on, scientists will tell you emphatically that prime numbers are random and that there is no discernible pattern in them, none. For 2300 years, ever since Euclid defined them as “A prime number is that which is measured by the unit alone,” mathematicians have been looking for such patterns and have poured superior computer power in search of them, and yet have found nothing.  Why?

Prime numbers are unique, each one is an undividable unity until itself. If they could find a pattern that generates them, they could take G-d out of the equation and call it simply physics. If rather than a generating pattern, there were undeniable patterns within the numbers, if there were proof of deliberate design, the opposite would be true: There would have to be G-d.  There is the natural aspect of G-d, called Elohim that even Pharoah accepted. It is Elohim that defines the laws of physics.  Then there is the higher aspect of G-d, who goes by the unpronounceable (יהוה) and other higher Names. This is the G-d who actually Creates.  He Creates with purposeful design that defies the simple laws of physics.  This is why scientific elites hand out millions in prizes to anyone who can find generating patterns in the numbers. They do not spend even a moment looking for the more obvious deliberate designs that would rock their world.

As we illustrated in The Genesis Prayer the sum total of the spelled out 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet is 4248. We can readily recognize the significant spiritual numbers 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d; 424, as in the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David; and 248, as in that of Abraham, but we are not going to rehash 14 years of articles, explanations, and proofs in this short space.  We are simply going to advise you that the first few prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23 and when we divide One (1), as in “G-d is One,” by a numerical string made by those numbers sequentially we get:

1/.2357111317192329 = 4.24248100930230

Thus One (1) divided by a simple sequence of the prime numbers in order gives us 42, followed by 4248, and 100….. or the 42-Letter Name of G-d; 424 twice, as in the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David; and 4248, as in the spelled out 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, including 248, as in  Abraham, the first person to acknowledge the One G-d, followed by 100. And this is just the beginning.  Diving One (Unity) by a G-d given string of numbers to get another astounding G-d given number is not new to us.  In the same Genesis Prayer book we revealed that dividing the number 9 by the numerical string formed by the 42-Letter Name of G-d gave us 9/.1230490… = 73.141593 or 70 plus Pi (3.14159265).

It is not the purpose of this article to discuss the merits of specific equations, it is odd, though, how those same numbers came up when, with the help of Rav Brandwein of blessed memory, we analyzed an unfathomable secret of the Zohar concerning the upper and lower worlds and the primordial aleph (א).  It is also notable that when we take only the numbers following the zeros (0)’s in the resultant quotient above, 4.24248100930230605, we get 9265, as in Pi (3.14159265) and as in the primordial aleph (א) equation: the Zohar’s 300109265 worlds divided by (Aleph(א)  X Aleph(א)) = 2701, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse.

Nevertheless, we already know everything ties together, and we hope to wrap it up nicely and in a very simplistic way in the final of these three articles.

Speaking of Aleph (א) in the Torah, at the very end of parsha Balak in paragraph 107 of Bamidbar, translated as Numbers, we find, as the very last word of the verse and paragraph, the word Aleph (אלפ).  Balak had just finished prophesying about the end of days and Pinchas has just saved the Israelites and ended the plague of 24,000.  Not only is finding the Aleph (א), the quintessential beginning, in the end noteworthy, but the phrasing in this last verse is also telling.

The prophecy about the end-of-days starts off with the verse, “…not in the near future, A star shall go forth from Jacob, and a staff shall arise from Israel.  The first two words (ולא קרוב )  in this phrase contain a word with the same numerical value of Korach, who is supposed to be the righteous leader in the time of Moshiach, and both words together add up to 345, the numerical value of “Moshe,” the redeemer.  Nevertheless, it is the juxtaposed names of Jacob (  מישראל and מיעקב) that prove most telling. Notice how they both begin with the letters (מי), which individually means “who” or “who will” in Hebrew, but together forms the word yamim (ימים), meaning “days.” The two names ( מישראל and מיעקב) begin and end with the same letters (ל and ב) that the Torah begins and ends with.  While the two names in the prophecy have between them concealed inside them the names of Israel’s arch foe, Amalek (עמלק), Balak (בלק) and Balaam (בלעם), the letters that are not used in these sinister names appropriated form the word Masher (מאשר) meaning “rather than” and also “approved/endorsed, happy, content.”

What is most important is that the numerical value of both names together ( מישראל and מיעקב) is 903 as in the sum of the integers from 1 – 42. “From Jacob (מיעקב)” or kabbalistically, “from Tiferet (Zeir Anpin)” begins and ends with (מב) or 42 in gematria, as in the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which, as Rav Brandwein of blessed memory pointed out, will bring the Geulah.  It is not a coincidence that the Israelites endured a journey of 42 places, each punctuated in the Torah with (מב) to reach the Promised Land, or that Balaam tried and failed 42 times to curse the Israelites.  The straight line from Jacob to Israel has 42 portions. The gematria of “From Jacob (מיעקב)” is 222 and since Zeir Anpin is 6 or 6000 taking 222 from Jacob leaves us with 5778.

Why do we dig and search for meaning in every word of the Torah? Because each word is a well and the deeper we dig the more mayim nukva, the precious pure desirous waters of our world enter it, rather than be squandered about on our arid plain. These mayim nukva solicit the coming down of the Mayim Dukhrin, the upper waters, and like the union between the upper and lower (מב), 42-Letter Names so crucial to our existence, the bonding of the two spiritual waters opens the gates of Heaven to us.

Back to final Aleph (אלף) that connects us to primordial Aleph, Binah, the one that preceded the Torah and all physically. “In that plague, 4 and 20 thousand had died.”

וַיִּהְיוּ, הַמֵּתִים בַּמַּגֵּפָה–אַרְבָּעָה וְעֶשְׂרִים, אָלֶף

Notice that first word is palindromic, ending how it begins, foreshadowing the Aleph in the end.  While the final letters of the first 3 words in the verse have a combined gematria of 611, the same as that of “Torah,” we find the two letters (במ) starting off the word for plague(במגפה), which has the same numerical value as Sinai and sulam, ladder in English, which in turn is what the lower (מב) 42-letter Name is, a ladder to the upper world.  The next word, four (ארבעה) gives us a clue in that it has the gematria of 278, which is that of “the gematria.” After the four (4), the final two words, including the kolel, have the numerical value 2019. And since aleph (אלף) is synonymous with eleph (אלף), meaning 1000 and eluph (אלף) meaning chief or head of, we should look at the final 4 digits of the first 1000 digits in Pi,  in which we had astonishingly found the digit sequence “5778” three times, and the subsequent year 2019 CE another three times.  Those last 4 digits comprised the third and last of the “2019” digit sequence. Contemplating again the exact wording of the verse, we see it could easily read “4 and 2019,” just like the full final sequence in those 1000 (אלף) digits: 42019.  And since we found it at the very end of the 107th paragraph of Numbers, we need to note that the sum of the integers from 1 – 107 is 5778.

And so we see further hints by the Torah that the period at the end of 5778 and start of 2019 is the final transformative shift, when the veils of illusion will be lifted for all to see. The final process begin, as prophesied in the Zohar and elsewhere, 70 years earlier with the birth of the nation of Israel in 1948, just like it was foretold eons ago with the three first locations within Pi (digits # 246, 703 and 996) for the sequence 2019, which with their kolel add up to 1948. This is also the year (1948 HC) of the birth of Abraham 3830 years ago, which mirrors the destruction of the Second Holy Temple in 3830 HC, may the Future Holy Temple be completed swiftly.

The Zohar, regarding Balak’s prophesy and these current days, tells us, “At the time of the revealing of Moshiach, the inhabitants of the world will find themselves in one distress after another and those who hate Israel will get stronger. Then the spirit of Messiah will stir against them, and will destroy the wicked Edom, and the entire land of Seir will go up in flames. Concerning that time, it is written: ‘And Israel shall do valiantly’ (Bamidbar 24:18). That is the meaning of: ‘And Edom shall be his possession, Seir also, his enemies,’ meaning the enemies of Israel.’…At that time, the Holy One, blessed be He, will raise the dead of His people and remove death from them.”

The Zohar also states in the same section Balak 47:501, “…are for future times, in the period of King Moshiach. We learned that the Holy One, blessed be He, will build Jerusalem and display a fixed star that sparkles with seventy moving planets and with seventy winds that display light from it in the center of the firmament. Another seventy stars will be instructed and guided by it, and it will be glowing and blazing seventy days.” B”H we will all understand this prophecy soon, though days and years are often synonymous in the Zohar and in Kabbalistic terms and this is the 70th year.

On the 4th of July this year 4 earthquakes of average 4.2 on the Richter scale struck in Israel as foretold in Psalm 18 that describes the salvation of Israel and ends with the 36 (לו) zaddikim and Moshiach Ben David. It was also foretold in this same Zohar portion, (47:504) “During the day when that star will be covered, the Holy Land will shudder and shake 45 miles around the area of the Temple…the most high saints (zaddikim) will be gathering to him. Then, Messiah will be revealed in the entire world and the kingdom will be granted to him.”

“The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.” Psalms 18:7

We’ll get into the prophecies in the third part of this trilogy. For now, let us return to the primes. We are going to arrange the prime numbers in sequential order into a natural stacked pyramid pattern to reveal some subtly concealed symmetries.  If we were to stack the prime numbers sequentially in a pyramid, starting with 1 on top, followed by 2 and 3 on the 2nd level and 5, 7 and 11 on the 3rd level, etc we would get

If we were to add up all nine columns (ie column 1 = 1+2+5+13…151) and divide by 9, we would find that the exact average is 425.778. That is right, 42 and 5778 yet again, irrevocably embedded in primordial mathematics.  Once again, we find design in the undesignable. It also works out that the average of the first 45 primes times the number 5 = 425.778.  Oddly enough, the sum of the digits in all those primes through 193 equals 402.

The sums of each line in this prime pyramid are 1 for the first line, 5 for the second, 23 for the third, 72 for the fourth, 181 for the fifth line, 358 for the sixth line and 625 for the seventh.  We stopped counting at seven.

While we’ve discussed the significance of 23 in recent articles, and 72 could be said to connect to the 72 Names of G-d, the number 181 is not only the 42nd prime, but 181 is also the sum of the first 42 digits in the primes (2+3+5+7+1+1…)—actually through the 23rd prime—yet another allusion to the 42-Letter Name of G-d.  Continuing to the sixth and seventh lines, 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach, and 625 is not only the numerical value of H’Keter (the crown), but it is also the exact square root of the total number of words, letters and verses in the Torah, (the 5 Books of Moses).  625 is also 25 squared, since the total number of words, letters and verses in the Torah is also 25 raised to the power of 4, and this is germane to our discussion because the average of the first 25 primes is exactly 42.4, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. Can we still think this is coincidence? By the way, the first 9 primes, the 9th being number 23, add up to exactly 100, or 25 x 4, making their average 11.111111, which is perhaps a connection to Aleph (אלף)  of numerical value 111.

Since it appears that once placed in a natural pyramidal stacking, the G-d given list of prime numbers may hold hidden significance for us, let us take a closer look.

Working our way through the list, we see that while the sum of 23 and 72 is 95, as in the value of “H’Melech (the King)” as in H’Melech Moshiach, the sum of the first four line’ sums (1, 5, 23, and 72) is 101, as in “Michael,” the protective archangel of Israel. Then we see that the line sums 72 and 181, alluding to both the 72 and 42-Letter Names of G-d as mentioned above, add up to 253, which is the sum of the integers from 1 – 22, as in the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, whose spelled out letters summed to 4248, which we have just seen being derived directly from the primes.

We have repeatedly seen how the sums of the integers is integral into the design of the Torah, starting with its first verse of 7 words and the sum of the integers from 1 -7 being 28, as in the 28 letters in those 7 words. Therefore, it is no surprise that the very next prime after the sum of the 6 th line of primes, which is 358, that of Moshiach, is 107, the 28 th prime.  What is most significant is that the sum of integers from 1 – 107 equals 5778, meaning that the 6th line, or interpretatively the 6th millennium, results in 358, Moshiach at 5778. By the way the final prime before prime # 107 is 577.

Moreover, 7 is the 4 th prime and while 7 x 4 = 28, the sum of the first 4 consecutive primes (2,3,5,7) is 17 and the sum of the sums of the 6 th and 7 th lines, 358 (Moshiach) and 625 (H’Keter) respectively, together equal (1000 – 17).  This can be seen as tying back to the 1000 digits of Pi, aleph (א) and to the millennia. The 4 th verse of the Torah states, “G-d saw that the light was good.” The gematria of Good (טוב) is 17 and that of the entire verse including a kolel of 20 for the 20 letters is (1000 – 17).  The word 20, esrim has the same numerical value as Keter.

וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאוֹר, כִּי-טוֹב

4 And God saw the light, that it was good

 

Perhaps it is a hint of what is to come soon as the continuation of the verse is G-d separated the light from the darkness.

 

וַיַּבְדֵּל אֱלֹהִים, בֵּין הָאוֹר וּבֵין הַחֹשֶׁךְ.

and God divided the light from the darkness.

 

Even within just this first group of primes, there are an endless stream of significant numerical equivalents derivable from the strings of consecutive primes. Here are some examples that further show a divine intent in the design of the primes, as opposed to a random naturally occurring sequence. Of course, that would not be possible without G-d. While some could argue that super intelligent aliens could create the infinitely complex Torah and that incredibly powerful and intelligent aliens could create our solar system, how could they create the infinite set of irreducible prime numbers? They could not.

  • The average for the first 77 primes is 19480, which is interesting only because Abraham, the Patriarch was born in 1948 HC and lived for 175 years, while the average of first 53 primes is exactly 110, Joseph’s age. Keep in mind that the 3 locations within the first 1000 digits of Pi (digits # 246, 703 and 996) for the sequence 2019 with their kolel add up to 1948. Moreover, we are now in the prophesied 70 th year from 1948 CE, when the state of Israel was founded, which is all the more amazing because the sum of the logarithms for the numbers 1 – 70 equals 100.0 and the 100th prime is 541, the numerical value of Israel. If you recall, following Moshiach Ben David 424 and Abraham 248 in the Primal Equation (1/.23571113… =4.24248100) is 100.

Maybe G-d wanted to send us messages where no one could mess them up, where there could be no fake news.

  • Like the 7 lines in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the sum of the first 7 consecutive primes (1,2,3,5,7,11,13) is 42.
  • The sum of the first 9 consecutive primes (1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17, 19) is 78.
  • The sum of the second 9 consecutive primes (23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53, 59) is 363, Moshiach Ben David.
  • Thus the sum of the first 18 consecutive primes (1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17, 19, 23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53, 59) is 441, “Emet (אמת), truth.” This is like the sum of the stacked 20 cubes in the core of the Great Pyramid, whose sum (1^3 +2^3 + 3^3…20^3) equals 44,100. Once those 20 cubes were stacked they equaled 210 units (cubits) in height, which is the exact height of that pyramid, both in cubits and in its 210 This would correspond to the sum of the 8 consecutive primes (13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41), which is 210. Then the very next 6 consecutive primes (43,47,53,59,61,67) adds up to 330, the base measurement of that pyramid in cubits.  Is this also coincidence? Our civilization’s knowledge of primes was supposed to have begun 2300 years ago with Euclid; now we are pushing it back another 1200 years at least to whoever designed the Great Pyramid.
  • Emet (אמת), is the seal of truth we say after each Torah reading, so how fitting that the 15 consecutive primes that include both the height and base of Great Pyramid (13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53,59,61,67,71) equals 611, the numerical value of “Torah.” Also, how fitting is it that the sum of the digits in those consecutive primes is 125 or  5 cubed, which corresponds to the sum of the 3 main structural elements of the Torah, which is 5 raised to the 8th power.
  • The full first 21 primes from 1 – 71 equal 661, when the kolel of 21 is included and since Purim is the only holiday that we will celebrate after Moshiach arrives, it is fitting that that 661 is the numerical value of Ester. The primes from 1 – 21 represent the full first 6 levels of the prime pyramid, with the 6th level possibly representing the 6th millennium in the 21 st century, and definitely totaling 358, Moshiach. The sum of the digits of those first 21 primes is 144 or 12 squared.
  • 73 is the 21 st prime and the Torah’s first verse has a numerical value equal to the sum of integers from 1 – 73.
  • The final letters in the first 3 words of the Torah spell Emet (אמת) of value 441, or 21 squared, the final letters of all 7 words (from the 28 letters) of the Torah’s first verse add up to 1371, which is the total of the first 28 primes, ending appropriately enough with the number 107. Moreover, since 107 is the next prime after the sum of the 6 th line of the prime pyramid, which as we showed totals 358, the value of Moshiach, it is interesting to note that when we add 358 to 1371, we get 1729, as in the exact 1729 words of numerical value 26 in the Torah, with 26 being the all-important value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).
  • The average of first 91 primes starting with 1 is exactly 210, with 210 being the Israelites years in exile in Egypt and the height of the great pyramid, and the product of the first 4 primes (2,3,5,and 7) The number 91 represents the all-important union of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), of numerical value 26 and Adonai (אדני) of numerical value 65 that we will discuss in the conclusion of this three part article when we reveal the Trinity. Speaking of trinity those 210 cubits and/or 210 levels measure 5775 inches, so add 3 to them for 5778.
  • And if we were to sum up all the integers between 26 and 65 (i.e. 27+28….63+64) they would also equal exactly 1729. Moreover, if we were to sum all the integers from 26 to 65 (i.e. 26+27+28….63+64+65) inclusive they would equal exactly 1820, the precise number of Tetragrammatons (יהוה) in the Torah. We have written about 1820 before and will touch on it again in the final article, but know that it also equals 91 x 20, the number of the stacked cubes which form the central tower that has been hidden in the center of the Great Pyramid for thousands of years.
  • The 28th prime is 107. The next to last prime before it is the 27 prime, 103, so the last two primes are 103 and 107, which total 210, alternatively 27 and 28 equals 55, the height of the entrance to the Pyramid in feet and the sum of the integers from 1 – 10, which is also the number of inches in 2 cubits, and the square root of the perimeter of the Pyramid in feet. Also, If we add the prime numbers in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th prime pyramid levels (1 + 5 + 23 + 181) we get 210 yet again.
  • The sum of the 6 consecutive primes (37,41,43,47,53,59) equals 280, the value of the five final letters in the Hebrew alphabet associated with the end-of-days.
  • There is also the sum of the 3 consecutive primes (53,59,61) that equal 173, the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name of G-d and also the 40th prime number. 173 is also the average of first 78 primes, starting with 1, while the average of first 42 primes, starting with 1, is exactly 7857.

How much clearer can G-d’s messages to us be? Well how about if He designed the Torah too so that the total gematria of the Torah divided by the value of its first verse (21009826/2701) would be 7778.536?  And how about if that total gematria of the Torah divided 3636, or (21009826/3636) worked out to 5778.28. Why 3636?  Maybe because 3636 is 36 x 101, which represents the protection of the 36 Tzaddikim and Michael (101), the protectors of Israel. Or maybe because 3636 = 2 x 1818, representing the 3 iterations of the letter Aleph (א) that R’ Azulai wrote about in L’Chesed AbrahamThese two (2) fully empowered Alephs (א) are the 2000 years and the 2000 generations found in the 18 words of the 13 Attributes of G-d, “Notzer Chesed Alefim.”

  • Adding a 4th consecutive prime (53,59,61,67) equals 240, the value of Amalek, the eternal enemy of Israel.
  • We see entwined within the prime numbers, found right at the beginning where we could not miss them, the numbers associated with G-d’s names, 72 and 42, and the value for Moshiach, 358. Then when we add the value (26) of the Tetragramamton (יהוה) they sum to 496, the numerical value of Malchut, our world, meaning Kingdom. It is the third perfect number after 6 and 28, a very small set of numbers, whose factors equal itself.
  • And even clearer is the fact that the 42nd prime, which is 181, plus the 72nd prime, which is 359, plus 1 for the kolel equals 541, Israel, the 100th prime. This is not only purposefully designed, but beautifully so, as one would imagine anything created by G-d. We can see this in that 181 is the 42nd prime, and there are 42 digits in the first 23 primes and those first 42 digits sum to
  • We touched on factorials as they applied to the Torah in The Genesis Prayer. Factorials are when all the integers up to a number are multiplied together, rather than added so it is apropos that there are 181 digits in 111! (111 factorial), connecting the sum of primes yet again to Aleph of numerical value 111. And yes, (181 – 70) is 111.
  • Whatever G-d’s plans and the designs He built into our universe the digital string “181” occurs at position 728 with the constant Pi after the 3, and Resolution 181 was adopted by the United Nations on November 29, 1947.  This resolution was designed to divide Britain’s former Palestinian mandate into two separate Jewish and Arab states by the date that the mandate was set to end.
  • And referring to the prime pyramid line sums (5,23,72,and 181), the number 181 is also the 5 th Star number, which is a centered figurate number that represents a centered hexagram in other words a six-pointed star like the Magen David. The numerical value of Israel (541) also is a Star, number, the 9 And we saw earlier how 72 and 181 summed up to form 253, the sum of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, so its interesting that 253 is also a star number, the 6th. And while 661, the numerical value of Ester discussed above is the 10th star number, the 3rd Star number is 73, representing the Torah’s first verse (2701) as the sum of the integers from 1 – 73. Incidentally, the 2nd star number id 37 and 2701 = 73 x 37.

The first star number, though, is the most important of all, 13, the numerical value of Echad (One) and Ahava, (love). With this, we wish you a Shabbat shalom. This is a concept we will develop further in the final article.  In the meantime, when you look at anything in this world look past the forgery and the fake, look past the words and works of man, and see the hand of G-d in it all.

The Capstone of the Washington Monument is Cracked

Coinciding with the end of Col. Gaddafi’s 42 year reign of terror, a 5.8 Earthquake rocked Washington D.C. this week, and the few notable damages were a fallen angel on the National Cathedral, the Pentagon, and the capstone of the Washington monument–an apt collection of signs, no, especially the symbolism of the damaged summit of the U.S? Anyway, we’ll soon see what all this portends, but before we begin our series on what awakening to the Tree-of-life reality may mean, depending on our level of consciousness, we’re going to repeat an article we published a year ago about the Washington Monument and more in particular its capstone.

The monument at the core of Washington D.C. and Dan Brown’s book is the Washington Monument, which Dan correctly points out is 555 feet tall and has a capstone of 3300 lbs. Now anyone who knows anything about Hebrew knows that the monument resembles a giant letter (V) of numerical value 6. And the reason this is significant is that 555 x 6 = 3330 and that there are exactly 3330 years from the giving of the Torah at Mt Sinai and the second opportunity for the Tree-of-life reality in 2448 HC and the year 5778 HC (2018 CE), the year given by Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim for the geula (final redemption) and the third reception window for the Tree-of-Life reality.

Moreover, since the letter vav is spelled out VV, it has a numerical value of 12 as in the 12 inches to a foot, which makes the Washington Monument 6660 inches tall, and this is significant only because there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years (50-year Biblical cycle) from 2448 HC to 5778 HC (2018 CE).

Furthermore, in 2018 CE we will be in the 115th US Congress, and we’ll also be in the 115th Jubilee year, counting as the sages do from Adam to 5778 HC.

Now, had Washington D.C. and its buildings and monuments not have been designed by the Masons this might all be a great coincidence, but it would be very surprising that architects familiar with ancient gematria and the writings of the tzaddikim would not have incorporated this knowledge in their monumental works. Especially so, considering that the tiny aluminum capstone that rests at the apex of the Washington Monument weighs exactly 100 oz with 100 being the numerical value for Keter, the crowning sefira (dimension) at the apex of the Tree-of-Life. This in itself would mean nothing if the architect didn’t also know that 100 oz was 6.25 lbs and that 625 is the numerical value of “H’Keter (the Crown)” high atop the 555 ft tall monument.  Or that 100 is the numerical value of the letter Caf (CP), the first and representative letter of Keter (CTR), and that CP can also be pronounced Cap, as in Capstone.

Furthermore, gematria and Kabbalah scholars know that the letter Caf (C) has a numerical value of 20 and the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim) has a numerical value of 620, the same as that of Keter.

No one can say for sure that the Washington Monument was designed as a giant letter Vav or as the central column of the Tree-of-Life, but it does make a heck of a sundial and it is indisputable that the surface temperature of the sun is 5778 K, and that the final measure of the complete Washington Monument stretches figuratively from 625 to 555, for a span of 70, which is oddly analogous to the 70 years that span the statehood of Israel in the year 5708 (1948 CE) to 5778 (2018 CE).

Who knows who knew what, but there are only 6.66 years left until 2018.

There’s more to the Washington Monument than we first revealed, but more important is what it connects us to as a metaphor: the central axis of the Tree-of-Life; the 42-Letter Sword of Moses; the 10 Commandments; and even Joseph’s Pyramid and the Future Holy Temple. It’s not as odd as it sounds and we’ll explain all these concepts and we promise we’ll then segue into them in subsequent articles with much fuller explanations.

Since the Monument was built to resemble a giant Egyptian obelisk dedicated to the sun, let’s start with the word Cap, as in capstone, which is spelled (C-P). As per the Arizal, the letters CP are two of the revolving 7-letter sequence that connects to the energy of and spiritually controls the influence of the 7 planets CPRTBGD; they are the first two when it comes to controlling the Sun, whose surface temperature as we’ve previously noted is 5778 K.

Here is a secret about the letter Caf (CP). While its numerical value sofit is 820, the same as the all-important phrase at Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” Caf (CP)’s ordinal value is 28, making its’ complete value (820+28) = 848, or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Nevertheless, besides representing Keter(CTR), the crowning sefira and besides also representing the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch in his Book the Sefer Yetzira,” , the letter Caf (C) when spelled out (CP) also spells out the word for palm, as in the palm of our hands.

Thus our 2 palms obviously connect with the two 424’s, but they also connect with our 10 fingers, 5 on one side, 5 on the other, like the 10 sefirot, 10 Commandments on the 2 tablets, and like Abraham’s description, “5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle.” And the reason this is so significant will become clear once we examine why the 4 bases of the Washington Monument all had to be 55’ long.

Meanwhile, the Zohar supports this revelation in that in portion Ekev it states emphatically that the palms connect to the 14 joints of the fingers and that there are 28 joints in both hands, which is the numerical value of Koach, power.

Like the weight of the aluminum capstone at the tip of the Washington Monument (6.25 lbs) the ratio of its capstone (pyramidian) height to its base is also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625, reinforcing the image of the capstone pyramid as “H’Keter (the Crown)” of numerical value 625. It also connects it the Torah, whose square root of its total number of words, verses, and letters is exactly 625.

Just in case you think the Masons accidentally hit upon this ratio, please note that the ratio of the bases of the entire Monument to that of the capstone are also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625,

Another very significant and telling ratio chosen by the Monument’s architects is given by the Monument’s height to its base is 555/55.5 ft = 10 for a ratio of 10 to 1, or inversely 1 ft of width for every 10 of height, a very steep angle indeed.  More significant than its angle of inclination is its similarity of structure to another Keter that involves 10: The 10 Commandments.

The 10 Commandments (Utterances) found in the 13 verses of chapter 20 (the numerical value of the Hebrew letter Caf) of Exodus consist of exactly 620 letters, the numerical value of the word Keter and of the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim), an obvious allusion to the point the Israelites had reached as they were being offered the Tree-of-Life reality. Nevertheless, the similarity in structure is delineated by the 62 letter Yuds (of numerical value 10 each)­­—the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH)—for a total of 620 (Keter once again), meaning that 1 in 10 of every letter in the 10 Commandments is the letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10.

Like the 2 palms and the 2 sets of Tablets given to Moses, there are 2 recitals of the 10 Commandments in the Torah, for a total of 20, one in Exodus and the other in Deuteronomy. While the first has 620 letters, the second has 708 letters, with 708 being the numerical value of the Upper 42-Letter Name (the 42 letters of the 3 iterations of the spelled out Tetragrammaton (YHVH). We only bring up the 42 Letters because there are 42 Letters in the names of the 11 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life, the central column of which the Washington Monument may be a metaphor.

And between the 2 recitals there are 130 Yuds(Y) with 130 being the numerical value for Sinai and for (Sulam) ladder. And while some say that 708 relates to 5778 and 5708, the year Israel received statehood (70 years before 5778 as prophesied in the Zohar 2000 years ago, there is a less subtle connection between 5778 and the 10 Commandments. The first set, found at Exodus 20:2 is located exactly at the 107007th letter in the Torah or the 107000th letter from the word Bereshit (“In the Beginning”), and 5778 is the exact sum of all the positive integers from 1 to 107.  This obviously can’t be coincidental, and as divine confirmation the first 2 words of these 10 Commandments “Anochi YHVH (I am G-d)” have the exact numerical value 107, and they contain the first 2 Yuds(Y) of the 62, back-to-back right in their middle (ENCY YHVH). Moreover, these 2 words (I am G-d) have an ordinal value of 62.

And by the way, the last word in the 10 Commandments has the newly revealed gematria sofit sofit value of 820, the same as Caf (CG) and of the singular Torah verse of unconditional love, as mentioned above.

Thus the Monument can also be seen as a giant letter Vav(V), which in Hebrew is a vertical line, capped by the Hebrew letter Caf (C) and as any Kabbalist knows CV of numerical value 26 represents The Tetragrammaton (YHVH), the ineffable Name of G-d associated with the 6 sefirot (dimensions) bundled together and called Zeir Anpin, metaphorically the vertical pipeline from our world into the upper spiritual (Heavenly) one.

And speaking of metaphors, while the Washington Monument is found at the edge of the reflecting pool at NW 15th street, the 42-letters Sword of Moses is found right after the crossing of the Red Sea (Yam Suf or End Sea) at paragraph 42 of the Book of Shmot, Exodus 15:11.  Appropriately enough, the sword is tipped with the word and letter Alef, which is shaped like a X comprised of 4 component letter, 2 of which are the letter Yud(Y). If you look upon the monument as a 4-sided sword, you’ll see the X formed by the 4 angles at the top.

There is one more monumental connection to make, of which there is no doubt the Masons were aware, for, you see, the entrance to the Great Pyramid (referred to as Joseph’s pyramid in the series of articles we began late last year and hope to continue with soon as a prelude to The Future Holy Temple) is 55 ft off the ground, and that pyramid too had a special capstone high atop of it. Furthermore, the ratio of the height of the Washington Monument to the Great Pyramid is precisely 15/13 or 1.1538 as in the 115 jubilee years from Adam to the year prophesied for the 3rd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality, 5778.

And if you don’t think the architects of the Monument had some inkling as to what they were connecting to, please note that the perimeter of the capstone is 137 ft and 137 is the well-known numerical value of Kabbalah. Moreover, Moreover, the Base of the Great Pyramid is 13.7 times that of the Washington Monument, a giant Egyptian Obelisk. Furthermore, the resultant diagonals of the capstone are 77.85 (NE-SW) and 78 (NW-SE).

Moreover, the dimension 55 ft (5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle) hides the secret of the ancient cubit needed for the building of the Future Holy Temple, and 555 of those cubits equals 1271, the year the Zohar mysteriously reappeared in Spain.

And the Future Holy Temple will be 100 of Caf (CP) cubits high, once again connecting with Keter and that Capstone.

Nevertheless, 555 ft = 242.18 cubits, and since the year 5778 HC is also the year 2018 CE, this year of prophesy is exactly 242 years after the founding of the United States of America in 1776.

Food for thought.

In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring in depth the various avenues brought about from the various metaphors and connections laid out above.

I don’t know if the Masonic architects of the Washington Monument were aware of what we’re about to reveal, but it was indeed part of its divine intent.  It’s important that we understand this knowledge as a prelude to our passing beneath the hidden embossed Tetragrammaton (YHVH) at the secret entrance to Joseph’s Pyramid 55 ft off the ground.

As discussed in our prior articles, each of the 4 bases of the Monument is 55 feet wide and the height of the capstone is also 55 feet, so if we multiple 55 times 5, for the 5 dimensions of 55 feet each, we get 55 x 5 = 275, as in the well concealed 27.5” measurement of the secret ancient cubit that is the be utilized in the construction of the Future Holy Temple. And what makes us think that this was the architect’s hidden intent? Because the entire height of the monument, 555 feet, is an allusion to that equation (5×55).

There is a physics principle upon which the Torah (5 Books of Moses) is designed, and that is that energy is never lost, which means that in counting the sefirot from 1 to 10, we get 1+2+3+4…10, which sums to a total energy level of 55.  So, once again , we have a possible monumental connection to the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life, and speaking of Moses, the numerical value of his name (MShH) is 345 as in the base of the monument’s capstone, 34.5 ft.

Nevertheless, the entire perimeter of the capstone is 137 ft, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive,” and the perimeter of the entire monument is 220 ft. Together, 220 + 137 + 1 ft for the extra inches we rounded off in numbers above, equals 358 ft, as in the numerical value of Moshiach, the Messiah.

Whether you want to believe there is a purposeful connection here to the energy of the Tree-of-life that will bring about Mashiach, you should note  the follow figures regarding the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).  The YHVH has 4 letters, but when we spell them out, they expand to 10 letters and when we spell out the full 4 aspects (spelling variations associated with the 4 aspects of G-d) we get a total of 55 letters for these first two iterations of G-d’s ineffable Name), as in the four 55 ft bases of the monument. Then when we add the 3rd iteration (or spelling out of the letters in the 2nd iteration of G-d’s Name), we get a total of 220 letters, as in the perimeter, or total for the 4 bases, of the monument, 220 ft. Now, note further that 1 +2 +3 +4 = 10, and it all starts to come together.

There doesn’t seem to be any coincidence in this design, nor in the fact that there are 42 letters in each of the 3 iterations of the 3 highest of G-d’s Names (YHVH – Av, Sag, and Mah) and also 42 letters in the Names of all the sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life.

Now, interestingly enough, the numerical value of “Washington” is 430, as in the 430 years of exile in Canaan and Egypt from the Covenant of Abraham in 2018 HC to the Exodus in 2448 HC, and of those 430 years, 220 were in Canaan and 210 in Egypt. The height of Joseph’s pyramid is 210 cubits and also 210 levels, while the perimeter of the Washington Monument is 220 ft. So we ask you, is this a great segue to the Pyramid, or what? Especially as we edge closer to the date prophesied for the completion of G-d’s Covenant with Abraham, 2018 CE.

Tree-of-life reality to follow soon.

Counting on The Tabernacle, Part II; Building the Tree-of-life.

As discussed in Part I of the Tabernacle, we know from the Zohar, The Book of Splendor, that the construction of the Tabernacle, Mishkan, is connected to the act of Creation in the first verse of the Torah (Bible).

So let’s examine all that money (metal) collected to built the Tabernacle, Mishkan and see what shakes out.

…….Talents…Shekels

Gold ….29………730

Silver 100…….1775

Bronze 70 ……2400

……….199……4905

Now, it’s relatively easy to see that the 1775 shekels represent and are connected to the 27 letters of the Hebrew alphabet which have a total gematria value of 1775.

Moreover, the 70 talents of Bronze is most probably connected to the 70 Nations, the 70 years, etc, and also the 70 faces of the Torah. And even more so, since the square root of the 4905 shekels is 70.03571 and 3571 is exactly (5778/Phi), or precisely Phi17.

Now, let’s leave the 1775 Silver Shekels out of it for a second, since they were for a special counting, and we have 29+100+70+730+2400 = 3329. And since the Torah makes a special point of telling us that the Mishkan was built in the 2nd year of the Exodus, (in 2449), we get 2449 + 3329 = 5778 (2018 CE), the year prophesied by Rav Ashlag and the tzaddikim for the geula, the final redemption and the advent of the Tree-of-life reality.

And since a talent = 3000 shekels, we see that there is an extra mixed talent of metal currency that can be separated from the shekels, leaving us with (4905 – 3000) = 1905, and giving us a total of 200 talents and 1905 shekels in all that was contributed to the building of the Tabernacle.

And since we’re looking at the Torah’s first verse, it’s interesting that the 27th letter is Resh (R), of numerical value 200, same as the 200 talents.

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

And if we were to add the 28th letter, Tzadi (Tz) of numerical value 90, to 4905, we’d get 90 + 4905 = 4995, which is the gematria sofit value of all 27 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

Obviously, the contributions of the Tabernacle are all about the letters (or the light/energy in them).

Is this reaching? You decide, since the total value of the verse is 2701, which is equivalent to the sum of all the positive integers through 73, as in the 730 shekels of gold used to built the Tabernacle, and since the square root of 730 is 27.01….

What this also means is that the Torah’s first verse is based on a triangular number, the 73rd triangular number. And we know this isn’t a coincidence because not only is the sum of the first 8 words (33 letters) of the Torah also a triangular number (3003), the 77th in fact, but the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse are comprised of 28 letters and 28 is the 7th triangular number. (For more on this and for a better understanding of the Torah and G-d’s design, see The Genesis Prayer)

So knowing this, if we see which letters correspond to triangular numbers within this first verse, we get:

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

First of all, the numerical value of the 7 letters (BETEEMZ) add up to 535 and with an adjustment for the kolel of the letters and the equation, we get us 541, the numerical value of Israel.

Let Val  x  Tri#  =                Sofit Val

B       2        1 =            2                 2
E       1        3 =            3                 1
T  400        6 =    2400            400
E       1       10 =         10                1
E       1       15 =         15                1
M   40       21 =      840           600
Z    90       28  =   2520          900

7  535       84 =   5790        1905

These 7 letters correspond to the 7 triangular numbers: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, and 28, which collectively add up to 84, or 3 times 28, representative of the 3 metallic elements of the tabernacle and the 3 columns of the Tree-of-life, and 84 is the value of Pad (redemption), the union of the upper and lower 42 Letter names.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value sofit of these 7 letters is 78, or 3 x 26, it is representative of the initials of the Tree-of-life, ayin (70) and chet(8), representative of the year 5778, as pointed out by Rav Brandwein. And the gematria sofit sum of the 7 letters is 1905 yet again, bringing us back to the Tabernacle counting.

We discussed in numerous previous  articles the connection between the brain’s natural rhythm/frequency (timing mechanism) of 54 beats per minute and its relationship to 5778 which is 54 x 107 = 5778 with the 107 triangular number being 5778, but we’ve recently learned that 54 is also the complete cycle of the 27 letters with its returning light of 27 letters.

And as stated above, the standard gematria sum of the 7 triangular letters in the Torah’s first verse is 535, which when multiplied with 54 x 2 or 27 x 4 = 57780, two complete cycles.

And this becomes all the more interesting because when we multiple the 7 triangular numbers by their respective letters and sum them all up they equal 5790, which is 12 more that 5778 and when we adjust for the kolel in the exact same way as above, we get 5778 yet again.

And given all these connections to 5778 (2018 ce) is it inconceivable that the complete sofit value of these 7 special letters within the 28 is 2018 utilizing the kolel of 7 and 28 letters: 1905 + 78 + 28 + 7 = 2018.

Or that the gematria of the 2 words of the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse not utilized in the special letter sequence above is 616, which is that of “The Torah (H’TVRH).

And you might say skeptically that 2018 could point instead to G-d’s Covenant with Abraham which occurred in 2018 HC, but we know form the sages that the final letters in verse of phrase point toward the future and the final letters in the initial 7 word phrase in Pekudei (“These are the accounts of the tabernacle which were calculated”) add up to exactly 2019: “ELH PKVDY HMShCN MShCN HADT EShR,” which may explain why the Torah chose to double the word Mishkan.  And without the sofit, the gematria of the first 6 words less the kolel for the 24 letters in them adds up 2017.

I wonder if the Torah is trying to tell us something?

Oddly, the initials of these 7 words add up to 212, that of “The Light,” and they spell out H’Pe M’H’Pe, “The letter Pe from the letter Pe.” Just something to think about, considering the 4805 letter Pes in the Torah and their connection to the Mishkan.

So why 1905?

At the age of 26, Albert Einstein experienced his year of miracles (annus mirablis), in which he published 4 earth-shattering papers on the physics of the universe that changed the course of history and laid the foundations of quantum physics, introducing the special theory of relativity, explaining Brownian motion and proving the existence of atoms. And it was on 9/27/1905 on the 27th day of Elul that Einstein revealed the world’s most famous equation: E = Mc2

Energy = Mass X the speed of Light (c) squared

The Torah, Tabernacle, Creation, the 27 Letters, triangular numbers, Phi, the brain’s frequency (54 B/Min), the surface temperature of the Sun (5778 K) and a dream that revealed quantum physics. And what runs through them all: The Light of G-d.

All that said, let’s look at those 199 talents and the 4905 shekels a little differently because of the 304805 letters in the Torah, 4805 of them are the letter Pe, and those 4905 shekels represent 4805 plus 100, synonymous with keter (the crowning sefira/dimension) and the numerical value of the spelled-out letter Caf (CP). Thus 4805 and 100 equals the 2 letters in Caf (CP).

Moreover, 100 is the numerical value of the letter Koof(K) and since the value 4805 represents the letter Pe, together they form the first two letters in Pekudei (PKVDY, counting), the name of this portion, 23rd of the 54 portions in the Torah. The other 3 letters in Pekudei (PK(VDY) permute to the spell-out letter Yud (YVD), and the total value of the word Pekudei is 200, as in the 200 talents.

It’s not surprising that the Mishkan would connect to Keter; nevertheless, there’s more to this. First we must understand the dynamic construction of the Tree-of-life as revealed by the Arizal in his explanation that the 100 talents of silver collected correspond to Keter, and that they were used to create the ground supports of the Tabernacle’s columns, which are malchut. The metaphor is easy to understand, as the sefirot are arranged as a tree (column) and what receives and holds up the tree from the base, is the sefira of malchut.

For those that understand, this is deep wisdom: Keter is One, Echad, as in God is “One.” It’s inseparable. From Keter the light expands level by level through the 10 sefirot (dimensions) spreading out without diminishing in its entirety. And from each one of these levels the light further divides by 10 sub-levels, and then again. First 1 then 10 then 100 then 1000, each one considered keter because they represent the complete light and not an aspect of it. Yet 1 remains keter of keter of keter, and 100 represents the light stretching from that point all the way through the 10th level of malchut (malchut of malchut) and similarly with 1000.

We’ll get back to this important dynamic structure in a moment, but let’s view that 100 shekels as 1 talent, or keter spread out through malchut of malchut, and thus 1 = 100 = the light of Keter fully disseminated through 100 sub-levels.

Thus is we transfer 100 shekels to the talents we have 200 talents and 4805 shekels, and following that logic, the 200 talents would equal 20,000 shekels, making the total 24805. It just so happens that the 5 Names of the 5 Books of Moses equal 2480 collectively.

And moreover, since 200 is the value of the letter Resh (R), those 200 talents and 4805 shekels together represent the combination Resh-Pe, of value 280, the numerical value of the 5 final letters, that complete the 27 letters, which added up to 1775 shekels, so the allusion is not without merit. And as the Zohar explains, the 5 final letters connect us with the time of the geula, final redemption.

The Hebrew word for “talents” is spelled CCT, beginning with Caf and ending with Taf, thus stretching from Keter (CTR) to the final letter Taf, thus malchut.

So to continue the Arizal’s schematic, each level has a digital value in our base 10, 10-dimensional world:
Keter – 1
Chochmah -2
Binah (Da’at) – 3
Chesed – 4
Gevurah – 5
Tiferet – 6
Netzach -7
Hod – 8
Yesod -9
Malchut – 0

These numbers indicate how far down the light has penetrated to reach that level.  Now each multiple of 10, represents the sub-levels penetrated within each level
Keter – 1 -10 -100 – 1000
Chochmah -20 -200
Binah (Da’at) – 30-300
Chesed – 40-400
Gevurah – 50-500
Tiferet – 60-600
Netzach -70-700
Hod – 80-800
Yesod -90-900
Malchut – 0

Malchut, meaning kingdom, has a digital value of zero because it is an endpoint more than a dimension; it reflects light rather than shining with its own. Malchut is a world created totally of illusion however real it feels to us. Malchut can be visualized as a screen on which the light of the other worlds (dimensions) are projected.
So when the light has reached malchut of malchut of malchut, it has shone throughout the entire Tree-of-life and is considered complete, and thus called  keter and is fully 1000.  From the aspect of the vessel (Malchut) it is zero, but from Keter it is 1000.
At keter of chochma for example the light level is 20, while at tiferet of chochma it is 26.  Thus each number has a place (space) within the Tree-of-life.
Tonight is the hillula of Moshe Rabeinu, may we merit to see him soon. The numerical value of Moshe (Moses, MShH) is 345, so Moses’ place within the sefira would be Gevurah of Chesed of Da’at.
We will be concluding the 10 Commandment series shortly with the explanations of how the 10 Commandments have laid out the final years to 5778 (2018) and how the devastation in Japan and the tragic events of the past 10 years have fit snugly into it. B’H we awaken soon.  Our prayers go out to the Japanese.
Shavua Tov.

Power of the Shema, Part III: Bringing Moshiach

The deeper the secrets, the more important they are. The Shema Israel prayer is the most well known and widely recited Jewish prayer, yet most people recite it without a clue to its many secrets and the power that these can unleash.  In this series, we hope to change that and fulfill my teacher’s wishes  that we make them available to everything in order to help bring about the tree-of-life reality, the world beyond illusion.

In Part II we’d like to continuing revealing the secrets about the initial 6 word refrain that begins the prayer.

“Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One” — is perhaps the most famous of all Jewish sayings.

Kol Ysrael (CL YShREL) are the last 2 words of the Torah, CL = 50

The ordinal value of Shema, the first word of the verse, is 50, so teh first 2 words of the verse are also representative of Kol Ysrael (CL YShREL), “All Israel.”

The value 50 is kabbalistic code for the sefira/dimension of Binah, (also know as the 50 gates of Binah). Binah is what we consider as Heaven to our Earth.  Then the 6 dimensions between them, corresponding to the 6 words of the Shema, is the ladder that we climb to reach it.  The technology embedded in these 6 words is designed to elevate our prayers and consciousness to the upper sefirot (dimensions), to Binah.

Now to shift gears a little, please note that Sum of complete value of the 6 words equals 1345, or 1000 (Keter, representing completion and the highest sefira) plus 345, the numerical value of Moses, who drew his energy from Da’at of Imma (Binah), a level none of us can.  Moreover, while he first two words (Shema Israel) represent the Torah’s last two words, the full verse has half the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse, tying the Torah together as an endless circle, just as it is meant to be.

Meanwhile, the initials of all 6 words  sum to 332, or 333 (utilizing the kolel of 1, as in the 3330 years, or 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50-year period) years, from the end of the 1st exile and the reception of the Torah in 2448 to the year of prophecy and the end of the final exile in 5778 (2018 CE).

OK, so that might be a stretch except that the total gematria of the 5 words of the verse is 577, plus the word Israel, the word that ends the Torah cycle.

And according to the tzaddikim of blessed memory, we are in the final decade, 5770, leading up to the manifestation of Moshaich Ben David and the final redemption (geula) in 5778. This will occur in Israel as the exile will have ended.

Referring to the portion of Chukath that we discussed in our article “The Book of the Wars of the Lord,” the act of Moses striking the ground twice instead of following G-d commandment “to speak to the cliff (rock)” we noted that the value of that phrase was 848, or twice that of Mashiach Ben David (424). And also that the reason Moses did that was to shorten the time span of the arrival of the Moshiach by half, from the 5778 years, as denoted by the tzaddikim, to 2889 years, which is the midpoint in King David’s life, because Moses knew how strong the negative side would be today and how difficult it would be for us to overcome it.

Furthermore, the Torah hinted of this in the words “water from the rock,” which was what came directly from his action, in that this phrase’s numerical value is 345, that of Moses, whose completed spirit it is said will be our redeemer, our Moshiach, in the end of days.

We’ve drifted from the Shema, but for a purpose, but first, we need to tie all this into pasha Vaethchanan, where the Shema is found, and which starts off with Moses praying 515 times to enter the promised land in order to bring Moshiach once and for all.

We’ve discussed this in prior articles about his obeying G-d’s request of him to stop at 515, when the 516th time would have achieved his desired result, so we’ll only point out that 848 – 515 = 333, as in the initials of the 6 words of the Shema and as in the 3330 years that will transpire from the Exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Sinai when we were first offered the Tree-of-Life reality to the year 5778, when Rav Yehuda HaLevi Ashlag (HaSulam) of blessed memory and tells us we will next be offered that opportunity.

In the Torah portion Vaetchanan, we find a clue linking the final redemption prophecies of (Deuteronomy) Devarim chapter 4 with Moses’ pleas and his actions of striking the rock twice on our behalf in order to bring Moshiach earlier than the proscribed divine time frame in that this is the 515th chapter in the Torah.

Furthermore there are 4 phrases within this chapter of numerical value 848, including one at Devarim 4:40 “A long time in the land that God your Lord [is giving you for all time],” but we’ll get into Moses prophecies a little later.

In that same verse, Devarim 4:40, Moses uses the words “All time,” referring to the land that God our Lord is giving us for all time. “All time “kol h’yamim” is spelled in Hebrew CL HYMYM, which breaks down to kol (all) of numerical value 50, representing the 50 gates of Binah, the Biblical jubilee year (50-years long), s mentioned earlier “Shema.”

In this case the word value 50 is coupled with word for “the time” or “the days” h’yamim (HYMYM), and with the kolel of 1, it has the numerical value of 666. Thus, together, they give us the equation 50 x 66.6 jubilee years= 3330 years, which, as we’ve said, is the exact period of time from the first exodus and the reception of the Torah at Sinai when the tree-of-life was last offered to us in 2448 to the year 5778, which the tzaddikim have long known will be the next cosmic window for the Tree-of-life reality.

Nevertheless, in that same verse, Devarim 4:40, we also find that the full phrase “I am presenting to you today, so that He will be good to you and your children after you. Then you will endure for a long time in the land that God” has the numerical value 5777, and is only one of 13 phrases in the Torah with that value with the number 13 being the value of ahava (love) and Echad (one) as in “G-d is One” found later in this portion.

Echad (13) is not only the last word of the 6 words of verse, but teh 2nd half of the Shema + Echad equation that = 424, Moshiach Ben David, as mentioned in our earlier Shema articles.

But back to the word Shema, through its connection to the value 50, it also serves as the link between Zeir Anpin and Malchut. In that the initials of the last two sefirot have the numerical value of 10 and 40 respectively and also form the word for Sea (YM). If you look at the 5 sefirot of central column of the Tree-of-life you’ll see the initials of the upper 3 of them (CDT) equal 424, that o Moshiach Ben David, and the bottom 2 are Yud and Mem, 50.

The 6 words that initiate the Shema Ysrael are thus designed to help align us with the central column of the Tree-of-Life in order that we can help bring out and welcome Moshiach Ben David in our lifetime.  If there is one prayer that ALL (kol) Israel says it is the Shema Ysrael.  Let it be with the consciousness to bring Oneness and Moshiach.

Part IV of the Shema Ysrael will follow shortly, helping to fulfill my teacher’s wishes.
