As we complete the 22 days of the holidays and reestablish the relationship between the Zeir Anpin and Malchut (Heaven and Earth so to speak) for another year, we read once again the story of Creation. Before even finishing the holiday, just after we finish the **7 ^{th} **hakifot (encircling) with the lulov and doing the

**7**hakifot with the Torah, both associated with Zeir Anpin, we read the first

**32**verses of Creation, the verses that establish the

**7**days of Creation. This is of design, not convenience.

The **32 **verses of Creation, as well established by Chazal, connect to the **32 **Paths of Wisdom, the Tree-of-Life. And as we explained in a previous post, similarly the ordinal value of the word Lulov, which is **32**, does as well, and moreover, they both connect to the Alter at the center of the Third Temple, which measures **32 x 32** cubits.

What was not previously explained was that the **6** verses in which each of the first **6 **days were completed in, thus establishing the **6 **sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, are the verses #**5, 8, 13, 19, 23, and 31** of the Torah’s first chapter. The numbers **5 + 8 +13 + 19+ 23 + 31 = 99 **and in the** 1st **verse of the 2nd chapter G-d completed Creating Heavean and Earth, plus **99 + 1 =** **100**, a level of perfection kabbalistically speaking, but also the square of **10** (sefirot) and the complete value of the word Lulov, **(68 + 32 = 100)**, and also the measure of the inner courtyard surrounding the Alter at the center of the Future Holy Temple, **100** **x 100** cubits.

This also corresponds to the sum of the ordinal values of the first **10** letters of the Torah (BREShYT BRE E) “In the beginning was created* Alef*:” **2+20+1+21+10+22+2+2+1+1 = 100**, once again perfection and the square of the **10** sefirot. And it should be noted that teh composite value of the letter **Alef** is **32**, which is why it’s associated with the Tree-of-life.

As we said, when we complete the **7 ^{th} **day, Malchut, firmly establishing the

**7**sefirot and

**7**days of Creation in the

**1**verse of the 2

^{st}^{nd}chapter, we have a total value of the verses as

**100**which corresponds to the

**100**blowings of the shofar on Rosh Hashannah that began the Holiday process 22 days ago.

This is all by design to reestablish our connection to the Tree-of-Life EVERY year, every year through the period of the Third Temple, which according to the prophecy of the tzaddikim should happen in about **7** years from now (around **5778**).

Please note that **5778** is **66.6** jubilee years from the reception of the Torah at Sinai in **2448**, and we mention this because as was explained in book *The Genesis Prayer *the number

**5913**is also derived from a beautiful equation based on the

**7**days of Creation and the kabbalistic principal that energy is never lost.

Before we get into the equation please note that in the **6** days of Creation there are **66** times the letter combination for the word “sea” appears (**YM**) of numerical value 50, the same as the length of the jubilee year, 50 years. According to chazal, whenever we see the combination (**YM**) as in Elohim (ELH**YM**) it represents the sefira of Binah (understanding).

And as for Elohim (ELH**YM**) it is found **32** times in those same verses of the **6** Days of Creation. Whether it’s the lulov, or the Torah or the Alter in the Future Holy Temple, we’re tapping into the Tree-of-Life , and drawing the light (energy) from Binah through the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin into the 7th, Malchut, the world of matter and limitation.

Abraham, the Patriarch, taught us in his *Sefer Yetzirah* several thousand years ago that **7** factorial is **7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 5040**, and when we apply that to 6 factorial and again for each of the **7** days of Creation and then add them together, we get **(5040 + 720 + 120 + 24 + 6+ 2 + 1) =** **5913** and even more significant, we know that the **10** Commandments and thus the 2^{nd} opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality was received on Shavuot **2448**, or the exact Western date **5/9/13**13 BCE (some say 5/9/1312 BCE, but it’s still **5/9/13**).

Of further note is that **7 **factorial and **6** factorial together total **5760** and (**5 **and **4** factorial) **= 144** and (**5** and **4** and **3** and **1 **factorial **= 151**. So, while **5760** is the year **2000 CE**, the spiritual cleaning bath, or *mikve *has the numerical value of **151** (same as the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh) and it contains **40 **seah** **each of **144** eggs, for a total volume of **5760** eggs, as prescribed by chazal. It was based on this calculation for the mikve and divine inspiration that Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory, prophesied that the Geula/Moshiach process would begin in **5760 (2000 CE)** and this period of Oy and Ashray could conceivably last for the **18** years until **5778** as fits the other prophecies, especially since the square root of **18** is** 4.24**, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David.

Everything is by design.
