The Gift that Keeps on Giving

It is no longer the 8th day of Chanukah; nevertheless, the Light is Endless and if you made the proper connections the residue of light still shines within you and we can still share Chanukah gifts. The Light is Endless, and we cannot separate the Light from the Endless. The Endless is a place and it is infinite; it is infinity. The Light is the Creative force of G-d; it is the Creator. The Creator is Infinity.

As scientists are coming to understand, the universe is a matrix of infinite parallel universes and Infinity means that anything and everything is possible, and that there are no limitations and no true boundaries.  This is the true definition of freedom.  This is what awaits us in the World to Come.  This is what our shackles to physicality and our illusionary blindfolds prevent us from seeing.  It is simple though: Everything that is imaginable anywhere, actually exists somewhere.  Not in cyberspace, but in hyperspace.

Cyberspace was not invented to liberate us, but to control us, to make our tethers to physicality stronger, not weaker. Now we can satisfy our desires to shop, to indulge our baser instincts, and to inflict mob rule 24/7 and we can do all three simultaneously, all while a few much more powerful and more scrupulous elites flood our cyber lives with their narrative and agenda while monitoring our every keystroke.  Is that the freedom we were promised?

On the other hand, we have hyperspace, and given all the infinite possibilities defined by the infinite parallel universes G-d must exist somewhere in at least one of them, and while things may exist in one parallel universe and not another, if it exists in even one, It Exists period.  Given that the Creator must exist, and given the nature of the Creator as the source and end all of everything, He then must exist everywhere.  So, whether you believe in G-d or believe in science, you must believe in the Creative force and the greater beyond. If not, like Adam after the sin, you are just hiding from G-d and His desires for you.  It did not work for Adam and it does not work for us either.  Letting people sell us more blindfolds will not hide us any better; they will only cause us to stumble further.

In the infinite world of the endless, there are no limitations and G-d exists with complete certitude.

In the infinite world of the endless, there are no limitations and G-d exists with complete certitude.

The endless infinity is called Ein Sof (אין סוף) in Hebrew, and the Light is Ohr (אור); they both equal 207, the same as Raz (רז), secret. The secret is what the kabbalists have been saying for thousands of years: G-d is the Light, which is the Endless, which is Infinite, which means once we are connected we have NO LIMITATIONS.  This is true freedom. Being able to shop from your phone is not freedom; it is slavery.

When we connect to Binah, we are not only the Light, we are One (אחד). Everything here in our world, is divisive, disjointed, and self-centered.  Everything here in our world, has an end, which is why it is not light, which is endless.  What we consider light in our world is just a shadow, a reflection, an illusion. This is the hardest thing to look past, and to let go of. Once we do, though, we can enter Binah. The World to Come will soon come upon us like an overpowering tidal wave and we will need to be able to let go, to jettison our anchors if we want to ride it.

Think of being in our world as being immersed in the most complete virtual reality machine you can imagine. You are totally integrated with that world and no nothing outside of it. You cannot think outside that box because that box is all you know.  The only way out is to unplug it, but before you can do that you must wake up and realize that your virtual world is not real and that there is actually something to unplug.  That is the first and hardest step.  That is what we are trying to do, to show you the signs, in other words the glitches in the VR system that do not make sense, things that do not add up. We want you to wake up in time and unplug.

Since the physical VR system is a copy of spiritual one, it is based on the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and built on base-10 mathematics, which is why we can use simple mathematics to break the virtual codes, and to decode the hidden tools built into the system that transcend both worlds, like, the Torah, the Shema and the 42-Letter Name of G-d.

My fascination in mathematics and how it ties everything together was first piqued when I heard about perfect numbers in the 7th grade and tried to prove a relationship between them and the Fibonacci sequence. Perfect numbers are those whole numbers whose factors when added together equal the number itself. For example, the first perfect number is 6, whose factors 1 and 2 x 3 can be summed up as 1+2+3 = 6. Perfect numbers are very rare.  The second perfect number is 28, as in the 28 letters in the Torah’s first verse. The third perfect number is 496, as in the value of the word Malchut, the earthly physical kingdom.  To give you an idea how rare these number are, the 13th shortest one is 314 digits long.  I only mention them because as previously explained the number 6 defines our physicality, the 28 first letters of the Torah end with the word Earth, our physical home, and 496 is the value of the word Malchut, the earthly physical kingdom.  Everything is perfect and as it was always meant to be. Trust in the Truth. Trust that G-d has a plan for us. Trust in the spiritual tools. Do not trust in those who are now fighting to remove the words “In God we trust” from our currency. They are the same people who urge us that violence, hatred, and mob rule and tells us through our (their) networks that it is OK as long as we have a difference of opinion. They are the ones feeding us that difference of opinion.

Today’s technology offers everyone the real possibility to connect to endless knowledge at our fingertips. Whatever the question or problem an answer or solution is only a few clicks away.  The difference between this connection to the cloud and the connection to the Endless Light of Binah is that these Internet answers are impure.  We have no way of knowing whether they are real, whether harm can eventually come from following their advice, or whether the person or powers that are supplying the answers have an agenda, even a possible evil controlling one.  The other difference is that any answer we get from man-made sources is inherently limited. It is limited to at best what is already known, or more accurately what Man thinks he knows.  A few hundred years ago the Earth was flat and the moon was made of cheese, and maybe it is.  Given the limits of today’s technology we cannot even disprove these theories with total certainty.  One month, butter is bad for you, another it is good, then bad again. Though there are trillions of data points out there for us to download, what man knows for certain about the universe and even our human bodies can fill a thimble, and yet we will trust these experts to design antivirus vaccines by messing around with our DNA. G-d Help us!

All our knowledge is limited, meaning it has an end. There is an end to its accuracy and its usefulness. It inherently has an aspect of death in it. Spiritual knowledge, knowledge downloaded directly from the spiritual realm is limitless and always has an aspect of creation and the Creator in it. Therefore, we have a choice.  Over the last 240 years and especially the last 50 years, technology has been accelerated to lead us to believe Man can do anything, and that a new great age of expanded abilities lies before us. By mimicking the schematics of the upper worlds with their connectivity networks and portals operating at the speed of light, we have been led to believe we are living in a more spiritual more personally connected time.  It is a tempting illusion.

It is an illusion nonetheless.  It is a world now, where illusions can be flashed at us at the speed of light with fake news and fake politicians, supported by fake Facebook and fake retweets, following fake currencies and even faker ideologies. In the illusory world of the physical, everything is limited, everything is flawed and doomed to failure and demise. Death is a certainty and G-d is a leap of faith.

By contrast, there is more power in a single Hebrew letter than in all the Internet combined.  Each letter is a portal, an entrance to the beyond, to Binah, and thus an entryway to the true Lightforce of G-d and a link to all the knowledge that ever was and ever will be.

The sum of the entire 22 Hebrew letters, as explained in The Genesis Prayer, is 4248, an obvious allusion to Moshiach Ben David (424) and 8.  Since the letter Chet (ח) is the 8th letter of the alphabet and of numerical value 8, and since we are still plugged into the 8th and final day of Chanukah and to the 8-day window for Ohr HaGanuz, let us use it as an example.  The letter Chet (ח) is the only letter comprised of two consecutive component letters, Vav(ו) and Zayin (ז) and when we add their full names together we get 22 plus 67 equals 89, Chanukah, aligning it with Chanukah of the same numerical value (89) and thus to Ohr HaGanuz and Binah, the 8th sefira counting from below. As we wrote about during Chanukah, the letter Vav(ו) represents the Sun (Shemesh) and the Shamash candle and the name for the letter Zayin (ז) has the numerical value 67, which is also that of Binah.

The values of Vav(ו) multiplied times Zayin (ז) is 42, as in the 42 Letter Name of G-d, the Shem Mem-Bet (מב) the gateway to Binah and as in the 42-square cubit (6 x 7) gateway to the Holy of Holies in the Future Holy Temple.  This connection is also to the healing Binah powers of both the first paragraph of the Shema Prayer, which has 42 words, and to the 42 words that begin with the letter Vav(ו) in the subsequent 3 paragraphs of the Shema.  Moreover, it also connects to the 42 words in the Shema that begin with Aleph (א).  Therefore, given that the spelled-out letter Vav (ואו) at the level of Zeir Anpin has a numerical value of 13 acts like a capacitor and is a sandwich (ו-א-ו) of connections to the 42-Letter Name of G-d and thus Binah.

Speaking of the number 13, it represents the value of the two most basic attributes of G-d that we need to connect with: Love (אהבה) and Oneness (אחד), which is why the 6th and 7th words of the Shema are “One (אחד) and Love (ואהבת).” It is also why the first word of that 42-word paragraph has the gematria value of Endless (אין סוף) and Light (אור) combined. In the spiritual world (One and Love) and (Endless and Light) are the same. Because this connection is so important for us and so anathema to our physical world, there are 13 words that begin with the initial Vav(ו) in the that first 42-word paragraph of the Shema.  It is also why the initials Mem-Bet (מב) that have a numerical value 42, also have an ordinal value of 13, for a complete value of 55, just like the total 55 words of the 4 paragraphs of the Shema that begin with the letter Vav(ו) and that split into segments of 13 and 42.

It is not just random chance that these Vavs(ו) and the Mem-Bet (מב) each sum to 55, since 55 is the sum of the numbers from 1 – 10, as in the 10 sefirot, which according Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed memory are connected to the Shem Mem-Bet (מב) through their 42 elements (32 Paths and 10 Sefirot). The 32 Paths themselves are equivalent to One and Love (אחד) and Love (ואהבה), which itself is connected to the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) of numerical value 26 and the 6 for connecting Vav(ו), both representative of the 6 bundled dimensions of Zeir Anpin that act as a ladder to Binah as previously explained.

In our world we are taught to dismiss things as coincidence. In the upper world of true connectivity that concept does not exist; nothing happens in a vacuum or without a reason. Therefore, in the perfect world of the endless light, it is also not coincidental the 55 is the 10th number in the Fibonacci sequence, or that in that short 10 number initial portion of that infinite sequence based on the primordial constant Phi, we not only find that the 7th number is 13, or that there are at least 7 combinations that sum to 42, but we find the numbers 3,5 and 8 appear in order, as in 358 (Moshiach).  It is probably hard to find a mathematician who would not dismiss that, but they would also have to dismiss the fact that 358 is also the 10th digit string within Pi, the other most important primordial mathematical constant that our physicality is built upon.

Spiritually, we know that the concept of Moshiach (the Messiah) or guiding force of Binah is purposely built into the first 10 digits of these infinite numbers in the same way we understand that by admitting the existence of infinity, they are admitting the existence of the spiritual realms and the limitations of anything that does not take infinity into account. We also know that when we examine the gematria of Abraham (808) and Sarah (505) and their children (303) and find that it breaks down to Abraham (808) and Sarah (505) equal 1313 (Love and One) and to “their children (303) + Sarah (505) + Abraham (808) or 3 x (101) + 5 x (101) + 8 x (101) or 358 (Mashiach) and (101).

The Fibonacci numbers are based on Phi with 5 is to 8, as 8 is to 13 in that 3/5 ≈ 5/8 ≈ 8/13 ≈ 13/21 ≈ Phi = .618033887… ; therefore, their children is to as Sarah, as Sarah is to Abraham, as Abraham is to Love, and as love is to G-d (אהיה). What a message! It is all about Love, starting with love for G-d being the strongest and ending with the love we have for our children, which for most of us is the most powerful love we can tangibly feel. Imagine what it will be like when we take that love for our kids as a starting point and build it exponentially from there to reach Binah. And when we follow the trail of Phi and raise it exponentially to the power of 18 we reach 5778.000, this Hebrew Year (5778 HC).

Abraham (אברהם) 808 and Sarah (שרה) 1313 = 505 

Abraham (אברהם) 808 and Sarah (שרה) 505 “and their children(וזרעך) 303 

= 1616

Just to put a spiritual bow on this holiday gift, 101 is the universally recognized numerical value of the archangel Michael, protector of Israel and 1313 BCE was when we received the Torah at Sinai.

Who are their children?

Ezekiel 37:24-28

24 “‘My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd. They will follow my laws and be careful to keep my decrees. 25 They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land where your ancestors lived. They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever, and David my servant will be their prince forever. 26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people. 28 Then the nations will know that I the Lord make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.’”

In the spiritual world of connectivity everything has a reason and a purpose. This combination of the numbers 42 and 13 in the Shema, 42-Letter Name of G-d, and within the letter Chet (ח) can automatically connect us to the Tree-of-life and transport us to Israel in that 13 x 42 = 546, the value of the initials of 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life and of the 5 letters in the name, Israel (ישראל).

While the 6th, 7th, and 8th Fibonacci (8,13,21) numbers add up to 42, we find that the Names of our other Patriarchs are also connected to love, unconditional love and the Name of G-d (יהוה):

Joseph (יוספ) has a numerical value of 156 or 6 x 26, the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

Jacob (יעקב) has a numerical value of 182 or 7 x 26, the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

Isaac (יצחק) has a numerical value of 208 or 8 x 26, the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).

Together the names Joseph (יוספ), Jacob (יעקב), and Isaac (יצחק) have the collective value of 21 x 26 or 546, which as we just explained is the same as the initials of all the sefirot of the Tree of Life. It is also equivalent to unifying two powerful Names of G-d: Ehyeh and the Tetragrammaton.

(אהיה) x (יהוה)

Moreover, while (156 + 182 + 208) = 21 x 26, it also equals 42 x 13.

We can use any of these specific tools as a backdoor to Binah. They are our safe (escape) words we were given when we entered this virtual realty vault. They are G-d’s gifts to us. This Chanukah, we are taking advantage of the Ohr HaGanuz and regifting them.

The Dawn of Time

Our next Chanukah gift is that of the dawn of time, the moment before physical existence, before G-d created Heaven and Earth.  At that moment there were no limitations, there were no tikkune, no klippot nor negativity. It was a time when everything was One (אחד), the state of Binah.

It was the time of the Light of Love (אהבה). Picture your most joyous moments, when you felt truly loved or when you felt your love for someone deep in your soul and fresh in your heart. Imagine being surrounded by that love. Intensify it.  Imagine it enter your being and replacing the cells and organs of your body until your body is completely replaced by light and you are One with the Light, connected to everyone and everything in their clean pure state. This is the time of dawn.

In recent articles we have connected the Shema with the Torah’s first verse and 42-letter Name of G-d that is encoded in it, and we have begun to explain how to use them to plug into the beyond, the consciousness that existed before the Creation of the Torah, to tap into that dawn of time entry point.  Before the Torah’s first verse existed there was the primordial Aleph (א).  There was the point where the light of the primordial Aleph (א) met the Creation of the Torah. It was the dawn of time, the fount of Ohr Haganuz, the light of Moshiach.

On the other side, it is an Endless Light, an Endless Sea of Light.  At the time of Creation the portal stood open for only 36 hours. Every year on the 25th of Kislev that portal opens for 8 days, 36 candles.

We want to go back to the moment before G-d created the Heavens (Zeir Anpin) and the Earth (Malchut of Zeir Anpin), collectively before physicality.  We want to go back to those first 9 letters of the Torah (ברא–שית–ברא) before Elohim established the 6 dimensions/directions of Zeir Anpin.  We want to go back to the moment before 1216, we want to go to 12:15am when everything was in its potential state, unmarred, unlimited and endless without dimensional boundaries. This was the moment that King David, along with a long line of tzaddkim before and after him, awoke each night, at precisely 12:15am to begin their deepest studies and connect to the most powerful Light.

The dawn of Creation happened at precisely 12:15am, a moment before physicality began at 12:16. The reason is that at 1216 physicality conjoined with the spiritual realm. 1216 is the sum of the cubes of the Yud(י) and the Vav (ו) in G-d’s Name (יהוה), or 10³ and which equals 1000 + 216. As explained previously, a cube is the most basic expansion necessary to create 3-dimensional space, which is the basis for physicality as we know it.

The 1000 in 1216 represents the primordial Aleph (א) and the spiritual realm of Binah, while the Vav (ו) of numerical value 6 is representative of Zeir Anpin (the 6 directions) and cubing it (216) is the symbolic formation of the 3-dimensional world.  Combining the two is like adding water to concrete powder, we get cement. Therefore 12:15 was the last purely spiritual moment before physical existence came into being.  Like the 15 steps to the Throne of Heaven, like the 15 steps in the Pesach Seder and the 15 cubits that the flood waters covered the Earth, the number 15 (יה) is representative of the pure spiritual part of in G-d’s Name (יהוה), representing the upper sefirot of Chochma and Binah.  It is the gateway to the Endless.

The value 216 is always representative of (Gevurah). The 1000 in 1216 shines mercy into our existence to temper that Judgement. The World to Come is above and beyond the level and effect of Judgment.  In the realm of Understanding (Binah) judgment as we know it is not necessary.

The world of physicality is the world of Tikkune (תיקון‎), which has the numerical value of 1216; it has unavoidable judgement built into the system. The Mercy comes from knowing how to connect to G-d’s Names and having a pure desire and the consciousness to do so for selfless reasons. One of those merciful back doors built in helps us overcome our personal and global tikkunim through the first 4 words (18 letters) of the 1000-letter Shema prayer in that “Shema Ysrael Adonai Eloheinu,” which have the spiritual value 1215.

We can also connect to the mercy and endless light through our meditations at Kadosh Kadosh Kadosh (קדוש) (קדוש) (קדוש) during the highest and deepest point in our daily prayers, which is also equivalent to 1215 when the kolel for the letter and words is subtracted, as the Arizal was oft to do.

Rav Abulafia, of blessed memory, advised that we can also do it by using the “Combination of the letters,” of numerical value 1215 to support and overcome the bending of the “70 Languages” of the 70 branches of the Tree-of-Life.  The Zohar tells us that we are on the trunk of tree, and it is our duty and right to support it. It is not just any combination, so we will be highlighting the right ones as appropriate.

And speaking of letters, it is because of this connection to the spiritual realm, to the World to Come, that the first 9 letters in Genesis (ברא–שית–ברא) have a complete gematria value of 1215, as do the 11 unique letters (בראשיתלהםוץ) in that same first verse of Genesis 1:1, which itself is connected to the secret of the 11 ingredients of the incense.  These overlaps between the two worlds maintain a secret access opening available to us, a portal to the Endless Light.

Light was Day and it originally began at 12:15am, but after the sin of Adam 6 hours of Ohr HaGanuz was set aside for us to tap into during Chanukah and preserved for us for the 1000 years of Binah/Moshiach consciousness to come.  Because of that our solar clock shifted 6 hours forward and daylight dawned 6 hours later at 6:15. It was no longer the same light though. It became physical light and our solar clock began ticking.  Eight (8) days divided by the 36 candles is 8/36 or .222 and given 1000 years for each of the 6 Alephs (א) embedded in the Torah’s first verse and for each of the corresponding 6 days of Creation until the Sin, we have the 6000 years.  The clock to Ohr HaGanuz is thus and always was 6000-222 or 5778 years.

Using a more concealed and more revealing gematria cipher, we see that (12 x 15)/(12 + 15) = 6.666…, a metaphysical hint of that Vav(ו) and proportion that would shape the Tree-of-life that would give structure to our world.

Just before physicality came into being, all the energy of the Vav(ו) that would momentarily enter our world in order to create its 3-Dimensional structure existed in potential. Thus, the pre-physical Vav(ו) contained all the energy levels from 1-6, or 1+2+3+4+5+6 which sums to 21 and 21 squared, the square platform on which physicality would be raised, is 21 x 21 = 441, the value of emet, Truth.

In a previous Chanukah gift we discussed giving “Truth” to Jacob and how that Truth defined the boundaries of Israel. 12:15 is the moment of truth. The time 12:15 can be broken down to 12 hours and 15 minutes. Since we are talking about the dimension of Binah, the 12 hours being equivalent to 43,200 seconds is an obvious and direct connection to the 432 HZ frequency of Binah.  When we add to that the 900 seconds that is 15 minutes, we have 12:15 equal 43,200 plus 900, or a total of 44,100 seconds, which harks back to 441 being the numerical value for the Hebrew work emet, Truth.

In truth, the true way to earn the World to Come is through studying the Torah, and the deepest understanding available to most of us is through the Zohar. The following excepts connect us to that understanding and the process of Ohr Haganuz and its differentiation with the physical light of the Sun.

אוֹר הַגָּנוּז

The Torah portion of Miketz is always read on Chanukah and we learn in the Zohar Miketz portion 14:233 as it quotes Malachi 3:20 “ ‘But to you who fear my Name, the sun of righteousness shall arise with healing in its wings,’ Come and behold: The Holy One blessed be He, will cause to shine upon Israel the sun, which from the day the world was created, He concealed from the wicked in the world, as it is written…”

Zohar Miketz 14:234. “The Holy One, blessed be He, stored that light, for when it first came out, it shone from one end of the world to the other. But when He looked upon the generations of Enosh, the generations of the Flood, the generations of the Tower of Babylon and all the wicked ones, He stored the light.”

The dawn of the new light is almost upon us, which is why we are revealing the original dawn. When we connect to the pure spiritual light and bathe in that glorious radiation It lingers with us, helping us to separate from the physicality and the wickedness that is inherent within the physical world.  It helps us to draw closer to the Endless light, to increase our affinity for the pure light of Ohr HaGanuz.  As the time draws nearer for the two lights to shine as One, we can prepare ourselves by using the mercifully given secret connections to the Holy Names and to the spiritually freeing and healing light of Binah.  Or we can continue succumbing to all the ever more available physical temptations that will eventually relegate ourselves to burning light of a merciless Sun, as explained by the Zohar below.

Zohar Miketz 14:236. “The Holy One, blessed be He, will therefore uncover that sun in the future and shine upon Israel, as it is written, ‘But to you who fear my Name the sun of the righteousness shall arise,’ the sun of the righteousness being the sun with which Jacob was healed. It is ‘with healing in its wings,’ because everyone will be healed. When the children of Israel rise from the dust, many will be lame and blind. The Holy One, blessed be He, will shine the healing sun upon them, as it is written, ‘with healing in its wings’.”

Zohar Miketz 14:237. “That sun will then shine from one end of the world to the other. Israel will be cured, but the idolatrous nations will be burned by it. Concerning Israel, the verse reads, ‘Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily; and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of Hashem shall be your rearguard.”

We are given this knowledge so no one could say we were unaware. We are given the choice, so no one could say they were a victim.  The tools are several thousands years old. The Zohar is nearly 2000 years old.  None of this is new.  B”H it reaches enough people in time.  B”H everyone will have an opportunity.

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.

Israel’s Borders – A Divine Gift

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings to Everyone
