A Quick Channukah Gift and Blessing before Shabbat

We first mentioned this specific gift a few weeks ago but you may have missed it within a much larger article. This is the easiest of gifts and you can and should use it many times a day, every time you recite or hear a blessing.

Most blessings begin with the word blessed, Baruch (ברוך), whose sofit value is 708, as in the value of 42-Letters in the fully iterated Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d.

This is the station hub above for clearing all the prayers and messages.  As the Arizal explains, no prayer get processed without the 42-Letter Names.

It is not coincidental the Israel became a nation in 5708.

We follow Baruch (ברוך) with Atah Adonai (אתה–יהוה) whose numerical value is 432, connecting us and the blessing to the sea of Binah and the Binah frequency of 432 HZ.

We first wrote about this frequency in “Would I ever tell you to eat a BLT where we showed the symmetry in the Torah’s last word (ישראל) and its first (בראשית) which permute to (אשרי) (בלת) (אשרי), which has the letters (בלת) of numerical value 432 sandwiched between the word Ashrei that means blessing.

Therefore, with each blessing (ברוך‐אתה–יהוה) that we recite, or that we say Amen to, we can connect directly and clearly to the spiritual Sea of Binah. The Sea of Binah is the World to Come, where we will find Moshaich consciousness waiting for us.

It is also imperative that we say Amen (אמן) to any and all blessing we here. According to the Zohar, when we say Amen of numerical value 91 we are are not only completing the powerful unification of the Tetragrammaton  (יהוה) with Adonai (אדני) as (יאהדונהי) to link our world with Zeir Anpin, but something even more powerful happens.  When we complete the blessing for someone that blessing rises up, gets approved then spreads out and rains down inclusive of all the blessings upon our world. It is that important, and that powerful.  We get the same blessing that was said as if we said it ourselves and we get the light for sharing it with the entire world.

May the light of Chanukah and the blessings you hear and recite fill the entire world with the Ohr HaGanuz.

Chag Chanukah Sameach

Shabbat Shalom

The House of David; The Tide has Turned

From this weeks’ portion, Tetzaveh, Exodus 28:2 “And you shall make holy garments for your brother, Aaron, for splendor and beauty.”

The Torah instructs the High Priest to wear 8 garments, 4 of white linen and 4 containing gold. The Hebrew words for “for splendor is ‘L’kavod‘ of numerical value 62 and for “for beauty is ltiferet of numerical value 1111. Without the prefixes (L) and subtracting the kolel for the 2 words, splendor and beauty together = 1111.

Thus through the singular construct 1111 and the 4 ones(1), the Torah is hinting at a unification. Similarly, the two Lameds (L) with the kolel of 2 = 62, so through the two references to the number 62, this verse and thus the set of 8 holy garments are linked back to the 10 Utterances with their numerous connections to the number 62 and keter (620), as we’ve previously discussed in depth. And by the way, 620/8 = 77.5, a numerographic representation of 5778 backwards.

Please note further that the letter alef of numerical value 1, when spelled out is 111 and thus 10 x alef (111) = 1110, add the kolel (1) and we have 1111.

And we know from Rabbi Chaim Ben Attar of blessed memory as discussed in his Ohr HaChaim that this unification is of the Tetragrammaton YHVH and Adonai, (EDNY), each of which have 4 letters to match the 4 and 4 sets of clothes. He quotes from the Tikunei Zohar: “The four golden garments are an allusion to the four letters in the name Havayah [YHVH], whereas the four white linen garments are an allusion to the four letters in G-d’s name Ado-nai.[EDNY]” Since the YHVH is Zeir Anpin (the bundled 6 dimensions of Heaven), and Tiferet also represents Zeir Anpin there’s no mistaking which attribute pertains to which set of clothes. Together, as discussed in previous blogs, YHVH and EDNY combine to form YEHDVNHY of numerical value 91, the same as amen.

If we take the spelled out value of the 12 letters in Adonai (ELP-DLT-NVN-YVD) along with their kolel we get 683 and if then them add the aspect of the YHVH at the level of Zeir Anpin (Mah), which is (YVD HE VEV HE) of value 45, we get 728, which appropriately is 8 x 91.

But what’s significant for us is that the 8 garments represent the all-important unification that causes our prayers to ascend when amen is said is reply to a blessing. This is what helped the High Priest to obtain atonement for the people. And Aaron, the only person in the Torah whose name was linked with the word Moshiach, was the first to wear these 8 garments and was “The One” the Torah specifically said they should be made for. And we should also note that the breastplate that the magical Aaron wore, and that contained all the 42-Letter name of G-d inside and all the answers in the universe in Hebrew is Choshen, of numerical value 358, the same as Moshiach.

There is deep understanding here.

Moreover, we know from The Divine Calendar that nearly all the significant Biblical dates end in 8 and all include the number 8, including 2018 CE and 5778 HC. We also know that the midpoint in King David’s life, 2889 HC is also the midpoint in the divine calendar from Adam to Moshiach (the messiah) in 5778. We can now understand why: within the 8‘s is the holy unification.

This holy unification, according to the Zohar, is hinted at in the first word (V’ahtah) of this weeks portion Tetzaveh. Rabbi Shimon of blessed memory and the the Zohar further discuss that the unification is the union of Zeir Anpin and Malchut that occurred while the 2 Holy Temples stood and that must occur again in the end of days.

The verse above, Exodus 28:2 refers to 4 garments made of gold and the word for “gold” in Hebrew has the same numerical value as the name David, 14, or 28/2. And when we spell out the name David (DVD) we get the 8 letters DLT VV DLT, which adds up to 434 +12 + 434 = 880, and with the kolel, it totals 888.

Likewise, the first two 7-letter columns of the 42 Letter name of G-d matrix add up to 888. The first column is 471 and the second one is 417 and thus 417 + 471 = 888. The second column though, 417, can be added with its kolel for the 7 letters to get 417 + 7 =424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

There were Two Holy Temples and the two Houses/Temples, Be’it (BYT) and Be’it (BYT) each have the gematria value of 412 and 2 x 412 = 824 and when we add the kolel for the 6 letters and the 2 words we get 824 + 8 = 832, as in 832 BCE (3338 HC), when the First Holy Temple was destroyed. The number 832 also represents the time frame that both temples stood, 410 and 422 years respectively, which means that the 2 Holy Temples stood for almost exactly 1/4 (24.99%) of the 3330 years (66.6 jubilees years between the giving of the 10 Utterances (Commandments) and the Torah at Mt Sinai and the year the tzaddikim have said H’Moshiach (the Messiah) will arrive in 5778.

In 3338, the Holy Temple was destroyed, setting up the 2nd exile, the 70 years of force rule in Babylonia, but all things in the ancient calendar have their counterpart in the modern one and in 3/3/38 the first oil well was discovered in Saudi Arabia, setting up 70 years of Arab fortune at the expense of Israel and the Jews. Those 70 years ended in 2008, when the price of oil sank 72% and the Saudi investments in Citibank sank even more, along with much more Arab investment and influence around the world.

Something spiritual snapped in 2008, the supernal ministers had changed and by January 2009, Israel was once again able to fight and defend itself with the strength and protection from above with a massively successful incursion against Hamas and with a lopsided victory not seen in years. Instead of videos of Israelis committing what the world called atrocities against the Palestinians, what came out of Gaza were stories of Rachel Amenu warning and saving Israeli soldiers.

The year 1938 brought more than just good fortune and free wealth to the Arab and Persian kingdoms, it brought Kristalnacht as well, the kick-off campaign of the Nazi’s that quickly escalated into the holocaust. That date was 11/09/38 and the square root of 110938 is 333.0 as in the 3330 years from 2448, we received the Torah at Sinai to 5778 when we are supposed to receive H’Mashiach. But as the rest of the world writes it with the day first month second, that date was 9/11. And whether this is coincidence or not, the midpoint in David’s life and in the divine calendar less the spelled out numerical value of David is 2889 – 888 = 2001, as in 9/11/2001

With the shift in the supernal ministries came a new president of the US, the 44th, as in 4 + 4 = 8 and 44= 88/2. And while that is nothing more than a sign for the moment, the shift also brought the forced-by-circumstances confession of Bernie Madoff And even though many of us found ourselves wiped out by him, the truth is they already were, just not on paper yet. With the shifting of the supernal ministers, the internal hemorrhaging finally stopped; Instead of $50 Billion, it could have been $100 billion stolen.

This is not to say that the markets in general won’t continue to decline and that chaos won’t continue to spread throughout all sectors of the world and life, because they will, but certain elements of the world society will B”H no longer enjoy the protection from above that they once did, and others who repeatedly fell victim to them, B’H will no longer be so vulnerable.

The tide has turned. The Sea (H’YM) when spelled out has the numerical value of 666 and the 66.6 jubilee years are almost up.

With the major shift already occurring after the first 70-year period of the final 80, let’s see what the last 10 years will bring. The last time around, Ezra brought home the Jews to Israel, reestablished Torah study and prayer, and rebuilt the Holy Temple, which stood for another 422 years, with 422 being the numerical value for the word “seventy”

The 2nd part of the spelled out word Be’it is YVD TV = 426-2 (kolel) = 424

So if we add the letters in House of David (Beit M’David) spelled out we get 838+ 80 + 880 = 1798 + 18 (letters) and 2 (words) = 1818, which as we’ve discussed in a previous blog was what Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory pointed out in Chesed L’Avraham to be the 3rd iteration of the spelled-out letter Alef. This was the same book in which he fingered the year 5760 for the beginning of the final 18 year period.

And let’s not forget the part America play in G-d’s plans as 2 x 888 = 1776, America’s birth date. And 888/44, as in our 44th President = 2018.18

Give Obama credit. He stepped up to the plate. Things are not going as he planned, nor as his supporters planned. And they won’t. The ministers have changed; the playing field has shifted along with them.

Everyone plays a part. With the change in the tide, our part will get easier. But if we choose to ignore our role…

We must step up too.

G-d speaks to Moses and in the first two words of this portion, He says to him, V’atah Tetzaveh, (VETH TZVH), “And You must Command”. And while the gematria value of Tetzaveh is 501, the same as Barack Hussein Obama, and the value of the second word (v’atah) is the same as Be’it, (house or Temple, 412), the value of both words is 913, the same as Bereshit, “In the Beginning).

It is a new beginning. It’s up to us to build the right house.

The Nature of Miracles

In this week’s portion we read about the magical breastplate of the High Priest, the one in which a parchment was hidden inside that contained the 42-Letter Name of G-d to activate the so-called magic.

If you are doing the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name of G-d) properly, which means in the course of doing an action (helping yourself to manifest something) then you should be seeing what are called miracles regularly. If not, you should read The Genesis Prayer. Miracles, Nes (NS) are nothing more than a shift in reality, and we know our reality is nothing more than an illusion, so shifting it, while it seems to many like some great endeavor, is really nothing special at all, and takes no great effort on your part or on the part of the universe.

That said, much more happens when we initiate a miracle. As theBaal Shem Tov teaches when you cause a miracle to happen, you open up a channel for the whole world to follow. “Initially, a miracle is above nature [but] After the first time it happens, though, it becomes part of nature.” [You} opened up a new channel of bringing Divine beneficence into the world.”


The Hebrew word for miracle – nes (NS)- means elevated and when we spell out the letters nun and samech and add 2 for the kolel we get 228, the same as for Baruch, blessing, so we are in essence creating a blessing, by channeling the miracle. And if you prayed for (used the Ana B’koach to create) that miracle of behalf of others, you are in essence praising G-d, which is the the true higher level of prayer, the ones that according to the Baal Shem Tov, get answered first.

The Baal Shem Tov further explains that this is the same with studying and revealing new Torah incite: “This is what happened to the Beis Yoseph (Rabbi Yoseph Karo). He toiled and toiled until he reached an understanding of a certain text. But shortly afterwards he overheard someone saying that very same interpretation, and he became very upset. The Ari z”l explained to him, “You opened up the channel so that others can receive the same.”

“After a new channel of Divine effluence has been opened, whether this is a new channel of wisdom or a new channel of serving Gd, this becomes a natural path that causes a new path of material blessing to open as well.”

But being this powerful channel comes with new responsibilities as you may have already realized in your lives. You have elevated yourselves and the world and now you must do even more to maintain your new spiritual stature. The Baal Shem Tov continues, “However, one must not follow this new path in a rote way and remain stuck there. Instead, one must continue to ascend to higher levels to open up yet another new path.”

Whether it’s spreading miracles or our Torah knowledge and secrets we are all powerful channels now and have been given new and greater responsibilities to do more and continue blazing the paths for the world and our brethren. We all must make sure we are doing our part and B”H we will open the channels to bring Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) in their appropriate time for as many people as possible.

Shabbat Shalom

4 Wells and the Source of the Living Waters

What do the 4 wells in parsha Toldot have to do with Isaac being 60 and with the fountain of life?

The Torah begins with the word for “well” permuted in its verse first 3 letters (BRE to BER), and actually it repeat it as the second word in the Torah (BRE to BER). Why?

And together they add to 406, the value of the spelled-out letter tav (TB). Why is the end in the beginning?

Let’s jump ahead to Toldot, the 6th portion of the Torah, where we learn about Isaac digging wells, and as the Arizal points out “the well (H’Be’er) has the same numerical value of Isaac (Yitzchak).

There are four wells mentioned, but the Arizal in his commentary on this portion, really goes deeper into the first two and then concentrates on the phrase from the portion (Bereshit 26:19) “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim), living waters.

The names of the 4 wells are Eisek, Sitnah, Rechovot, and Sheba, and while the Ari equates Eisek with the aspect of the Tetragrammaton known as Av (Chocma), and Sitnah with that of Sag (Binah), he skips the other two and connects “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim) with Mah (Zeir Anpin). That said, the names Eisek, (AShK) meaning contention, and Sitnah, (ShTtNH) meaning harassment, are both found in the second line of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, (the Ana B’koach): Eisek = KRAShTtN and Sitnah = HRYShTtN and the only letter not utilized in teh line is the resh (R), as in Rechovot (RChBVT) meaning “open spaces.”

As for Sheba (ShBA), the shin and ayin as included in this second line so the collective letters not utilized in the 4 wells are H, Ch,B,V,T and B) and these 6 letters sum to 423 and is we add 1 for the kolel, we get 424, the value for Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah.

Now, while the word Rechovot from which most of the extraneous letters come from has the word value 616, the same as that of H’Torah, “The Torah,” the final letters of Eisek, Sitnah and Rechovot (K,H,T) have the numerical value of 505, Sarah, from which the Mashiach connection stems, as we’ve discussed in numerous posts.

As an aside, please note, that the difference from H’Torah to Sarah is 616 – 505 = 111, the value of Alef, as in the Alef of Abraham, who also had dug wells before Isaac did, and is also the other half of the Mashiach equation.

So what is the spiritual significance of digging wells?

The 4th well, was dug at Beer Sheva, meaning satisfy/content and also seven (7) when G-d blessed Isaac and told him he’s multiply his seed for Abraham’s sake. It has the numerical value of 372. And when we consider the aspect of the Tetragrammaton known as Mah (Zeir Anpin) (YVD HE VEV HE) and use the spelled-out value of the 3 alefs (333) in it and add them to the value of the rest of the letters (42), subtract ing the kolel for the 3 alefs we get 333 + 42- 3 = 372.

Now considering that a well or cistern is a vessel, usually associated with the level of malchut (our world) and that zeir anpin is the 6 dimensions (sefirot) that channel the light (flow of energy/life) into our world, we find that the 7 in total are functioning properly at Beer Sheva to transmit the flow of energy necessary for G-d’s blessing to carry on through Isaac and to the future generations.

And since we know that the 42-Letter Name (the Ana B’koach) is directly associated with these 7 sefirot and that it acts as our channel to the upper worlds, we see why the early wells were tied in to it. Moreover, they were tied into the 2nd line of the Name, the line that is directly associated with Isaac’s energy. Using this analogy, the 4th well must be connected to the 4th line of the Name, and thus the point of the flowing blessings as well.

From the phrase “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim), we see that the first letters of the first 2 words spell out mem-bet as in the Shem mem-bet, the 42-Letter Name of G-d, and that the first letters of all 3 words add up to 50, representing Binah. And the full 3 words add up to 360. Moreover, if we add the 3 for the kolel for the 3 words we get 360 + 3 + 363, the numerical value of H’Mashiach.

And when we add those first letters of the living waters B,M,Ch, totaling 50 to the first letters of the first 3 named wells (A,Sh,R), totaling 570, or 10 times zan, sustenance, we get 50 + 570 = 620, the numerical value of Keter, the highest sefira/dimension.

There are 22 letters in the named wells and the phrase about the living waters in them, a not-so-subtle hint about a connection to the 22 letters of the alef-bet. So when we add the 3 named wells plus the 22 letters that comprise them we get 470 + 364 + 616 + 360 + 22 = 1832 and if we add 1 for the kolel, we get 1833.

Now, as is explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer, the central two letter pair, sitting at the center of the 4th (middle) line of the 42-Letter Name add up to 290, the value of Miriam, Moses’ sister, whose wells provided endless water and life for the Israelites throughout their 42 journeys on the way to the promised land

As also explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer, this central pair, Resh-Zaddi (RZ) also control a meditative gateway to fulfill that blessing and to help with conception and pregnancy, as well as with finding soul mates, as Rivka and Rachel and Moses did with their wells.

There is definite mid-point in the 42 letter Name, the place where the two drops from heaven, the two Ehyeh (EHYH), each of value 21, meet, 21 letters from the beginning and 21 letters from the end, a place where if the Name was split in two and the first letter was multiplied by the last and so forth and the 21 square roots taken, they’d add up to 358, the value of Mashiach. At this very place on the 4th line, the total numerical value up to that point is 1833, like the waters flowing through the 4th well. Is there a better place to find Keter?

And the ordinal value of the two letters at this special point, resh (R) and zaddi(Z) are 20 and 18, as in 2018 HC, the year of the Covenant of Abraham, also known as the Covenant of Halves, when G-d first promised to make Abraham’s descendants as numerous as the stars, etc. It’s also as in the year 2018 CE, the year prophesied for the arrival of the Messiah, at the end of the 4th exile.

And since these wells connected to the 22 letters, it’s important to note that there are 1833 letter Samech’s (S) in the Torah, adn teh value of Samech (S) is 60, as in the 60 years of Isaac’s age when he re-dug the wells of Abraham and stood in beer Sheba and G-d renewed (for no apparent reason) his blessing with Abraham, telling Isaac that he will multiply his seed. For no apparent reason other than making this gift of the Resh-zaddi gateway obvious to us and our generation.

And when we add the value of samech (60) to the value of the resh (200) and zaddi (90) we get 350 and if we then add the kolel of the 10 letters in “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim) we get “a well of fresh spring water” (be’er mayim chayim) = 360 – 10 = 350 = the RSZ well of flowing abundance and chesed (loving-kindness).

We also know from chazal that as the mid-way point in our journey so to speak this well (R-Z) protects us from the obstacles in our paths if we persevere and continue our journey until the end, seeing the illusions for what they are and reaching the promised land.

If we add the value of samech (60) to the full value of the 42 letters (3701) we get 3761 as in the year 1, or the 1st year on our new journey or 2018 years toward 2018 CE. Our first journey of 2018 years got us as far as the blessing in 2018 HC. There are 3760 years between the two events, 10 times the value of Shalom (peace, 376), or 10 times the value of Esau (376), about whom the Torah immediately tells after G-d extended his Covenant through Isaac, that Esau took a wife from the Hittites a source of grief for Isaac and Rivka.

And where do these wells flow from?

The Airzal tells us they flow from Gan Eden, the garden of Eden.

The Ark that contains the Torah is called H’CLY and we know from chazal that CLI stands for Cohen, Levi, and Yehudi, and that it has the value of 60, so when we open the Ark, we can metaphorically open the resh and the zaddi curtains (RZ) and connect to that flow from Gan Eden. We can also do that every time we do the Ana B’koach.

And note that it is in the 4th line (BTtRZTG) of the 42-letter name that we find word Brit, (BRYT) Covenant, slightly concealed. Since the Zaddi can be split into its two component parts, the Nun (N) and a backwards resh that in the time of Mashiach will be turned around, we have spelled out sequentially (B R Y T) Brit in the center of the line. So whose Brit and whose Covenant are gifted to us in that middle line of G-d’s Name?

This a special gateway available to all.  And to those that understand, the Samech (S) between the Resh-Zaddi (RZ) is the samech of Sulam (ladder) and of Sinai, both with the numerical value 130, which is why in Jacob’s famous dream in Vayetze Bereshit 28:12, the ladder was set up on the earth (ERZH).  It is the place of “running and returning.”

Use the gift, share the gift, and open the flowing waters in your life. Use the gift, share the gift, and help someone in need be fruit, righteous, and to multiply. Use the gift, share the gift and in the 8 final years to 5778 (2018) help fulfill the Covenant and be there for the Brit of Mashiach.
