The Future Holy Temple, Part IV – Primordial Proportions: Phi and the End of Days

In our first article of this series we discussed how both the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales aligned perfectly with the specific structural design of the Future Holy Temple and how the Kelvin scale and the surface temperature of the planets aligned with the dates given by the tzaddikim for the final redemption.  Next, we explored how the Temple and Torah formed and further aligned with the multi-dimensional Tree-of-life, forming hypercubes, including one with a telltale finger pointing to 314 (Pi).

Then we discussed how the courtyard and Alter design of the Future Holy Temple mimicked the skeletal bone structure our bodies, and how it all ties in with Ezekiel’s prophecy of the “dry bones” resurrection.

We’ll go back and examine the connection to the mathematical constant Pi and the Torah and the design of the Future Holy Temple and prove that the Hebrew Alef-bet, the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name of G-d) and the Torah were constructed utilizing that primordial constant to at least 6 decimal places of accuracy in a later article in this series, but today, we’ll concentrate on the equally alluring primordial constant Phi and how it relates to the Holy Temple and the final redemption.

So there are 54 bones in the hands and 54 bones in the body’s central column (22 head and 32 spine), and our brains’ internal timing mechanism is 54 beats/minute, what of it?

Let’s first note that the walls of the Holy Temple are 6 cubits wide, so when we add their width to the 312 cubit width of the outer courtyard, we get a total of 324 cubits or 54 x 6 = 324. The number 324 is also 182, or the numerical value of chai (life) squared. It’s also, not coincidentally the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David raised to the 4th power, (4.24264).

Moreover, it also means that the Outer Courtyard of the Holy Temple was designed so that its outer wall perimeter is exactly 64 cubits in total.

When discussing the temperature scales, we noted that 5778 K was the surface temperature of the sun, and that this is suspiciously the same year given by Rav Ashlag, etc for geula, final redemption, 5778 (2018 CE), and that if the surface temperature of the sun were even 1 degree cooler or warmer there may be no life on Earth as we no it at all. Now, as it just so happens, the proportion of the Holy Temple’s Outer Courtyard, 312 cubits, divided by 5778 is .054 or 5.4%, and while 54 x 107 = 5778 and the sum of all the positive integers through 107 equals 5778, the number 54 times 5777.777 exactly 312,000.

The length of 5778 inches itself is exactly 3 inches more than 210 cubits with 210 being the number of years the Israelites were in exile in Egypt, and also the height in cubits in and levels of Joseph’s Pyramid.

If we venture back to the perimeter of the walled courtyards for a moment, we can also see that the sum of the perimeter of the 32 x 32 Alter, the 112 x 112 walled Inner Courtyard and the 324 x 324 walled Outer Courtyard is precisely 6.57784 in total. Coincidental?

Of course, without the walls, the same sum of the perimeters is 1776, as in the date of the founding of the United States of America, and also as in 1 more than the sum of the 27 letters of the Hebrew alef-bet (1775).

Moreover, the exact triple point of water, the term our current physicists use, is precisely 32.018, which not only conveniently still points to 32, but it is also oh so evocative of the year 2018 combined with the number 3 as in the 3rd Temple, which is the 3rd opportunity for us to achieve the Tree-of-life reality, the previous one being exactly 66.6 jubilee years earlier, in 2448 HC at Mt Sinai.

In our previous installment we explained about the 206 bones in our bodies and the various connections to 206 in the Holy Temple, including the collective height of the 5 inner gateways leading into the Holy of Holies.  Thus we can understand the relevance of the equation 206 cubits x 3000 cubits (the width of the full Temple Mount) = 618000 = 106 x Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that controls harmonic spiraling growth in our universe, (.6180).

So given the connection between Phi and 206 in the structure of the Holy Temple and that there are 206 bones in our bodies, which incidentally conform to the Phi proportion themselves, and given what we’ve learned about the year 5778 from Rav Ashlag and others, it’s interesting that 5778/28 = 206.3571 and that 3571/5778 = Phi (.6180339) precisely to 7 or more decimal places. As is revealed in the book, “There is Nothing Random in the Universe,” there are deep connections to the number 28, Phi, and 5778 way beyond the first verse of the Torah having 28 letters, so it’s most probably not coincidental that Ezekiel’s prophecies of the geula and the dry bones occurred in 28 verses, or that time is measured in 28 segments, according to Ecclesiastes (3:2-8).

Or even considering the width of the walled Outer Courtyard is 324, and thus 182, that Phi18 = 5778.000

Therefore, it’s possible to view the 5778 year period as a process whereby we were meant to cleanse ourselves (our souls) to account for everyone of our 206 bones that are to rise up at the end of days.

And, of course, while the 42 Letter Name of G-d, the Name meant to help the journey of our souls and to help us reach the final redemption (the Tree-of-Life consciousness) according to the tzaddikim, is derived from the first verse (28 letters) of the Torah, we should note that 28/42 = .666, the Kabalistic proportion representing both Zeir Anpin and the relationship of the upper to the lower worlds (sefirot). And equally significant is the relationship of 28 x Phi (.6180339) = 17.30 since 173 is the small gematria value of those 42 Letters, referred to in the Zohar as the 173 keys to Heaven given to Moses.

The Entrance; A Step Forward and Upward.

The article picks up our series about Joseph’s Pyramid and its connection to the Future Holy Temple, which we left off late last year (2009).  In it, we illustrated a possible design connection to the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin (the spiritual linkage between the upper world and our world as defined by the Tree-of-Life) with the placement of the extra wide 50-inch masonry band at the pyramid’s 35th level. It split the pyramid neatly into 1/6th and 5/6th of its height, which itself is a reference to relationship between the Hebrew letters Vav (V) of numerical value 6 and the letter Hei (H) of numerical value 5, the two final letters in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), which, as we’ve discussed previously, are at the core of both the pyramid and certainly the Holy Temple.

If we apply that same split to the width of the pyramid’s base, 330 cubits, we’d have 55 cubits and 275 cubits respectively. And while 275 corresponds to the full value of the 4 expanded aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) from which the holy cubit (27.5 inches) derives (see previous articles about the holy cubit for details), 275 is also 10 times 27.5, a reflection of the full 10 sefirot (dimensions) in their completion.

So knowing that the number 55 (twice 27.5) may play a part in the design structure of Joseph’s Pyramid. Let’s revisit the secret entrance to the pyramid, which is exactly 55 feet off the ground.

First of all, as we recently did with teh Washington Monument’s base of 55 ft wide and its capstone of 55 ft high, let’s note the wonderful symmetry of 55 ft being the exact square root of the the pyramid’s base perimeter, 3025 feet. Obviously, this was no design fluke, any more than it was with the Washington Monument. Nor was it a fluke that the base of the pyramid’s South side, 756.25 feet, is also the exact square of the 27.5 inch cubit, in other words:

Holy cubit = 27.5 inches

Holy cubit x Holy cubit in inches = (27.5 x 27.5) = 756.25 = Pyramid Base in ft


756.25 x 4 sides = 3025 = Pyramid Perimeter = 552

And Holy cubit + Holy cubit = (27.5 + 27.5) = 55

Or alternatively

55/2 = 27.5.

The secret entrance to the pyramid lies 55 ft straight up the steep highly polished face of the pyramid and was hidden by a massive hinged stone door, seamless and flush to the face. It guarded the secret entrance for thousands of years, and was never actually revealed beyond a need-to-know basis. This is why in 820 CE, Caliph Al Mamoun had to blow a hole in the side of the pyramid in order to open it  to the world.  He found no gold inside, nor even a King’s mummified body. Indeed, no artifacts or bodies were ever concealed or found within the great pyramid.  All the secrets were locked within its measurements and unlocked by knowing the measure of the Holy Cubit, itself only recently revealed.

Today, with the magnificent multi-ton casing stones stripped away by earthquakes, time, and urban planners who used them to build mosques in Cairo, we can see and metaphysically enter the Pyramid the proper way.  What we find first is that on the 19th level of the masonry, 55 ft up, and 24 ft off center from the Pyramid’s exact central axis, is the proper gabled entrance to the Pyramid, with the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) engraved above it, the true guardian of the secrets.

Of course, 55 feet being exactly equal to 24 cubits is just another bit of beautiful symmetry incorporated into its design. And this symmetry connects us to the Future Holy Temple, which is the whole reason we’re writing about the pyramid and may be the real reason the pyramid was constructed in the first place.  In a subsequent article  we’ll explain the reason that the upper platform of the Future Holy Temple’s centrally located Alter measures 24 x 24 cubits and telescopes down to a base of 32 x 32 cubits.  For now, let’s just note that they are connected.  Don’t forget, that since 24 cubits = 55 feet, the upper platform of the centrally located Alter of the Future Holy Temple measures 55 ft x 55 ft.

Which means that the mysteriously dimensioned Washington Monument of base 55 ft x 55 ft would fit seamlessly atop the Alter of the Future Holy Temple.  We can ask ourselves why? Why does this Egyptian Obelisk at the center core of the US power base connect to the Great Pyramid in Egypt, at the exact center of the world’s land mass, and why is it designed to fit snugly atop the Alter at the exact center of the Future Holy Temple, the nexus point connecting our world and the spiritual one.

As we’ll explain in future articles the final gate to the Holy of Holies is the Gate of 42, all the other Gates of the Future Holy Temple being a full 50 cubits in height.  But for now, lets just note that 50 cubits = 1375 inches, and not only does the last 3 lines of the Holy 42-Letter names of G-d (Ana B’koach) sum (906+230+239) numerically to exactly 1375, but

The pyramid’s base/the Washington Monument base = 756.25/55 ft = 13.75


the pyramid’s base/it’s entrance height = 756.25/55 ft = 13.75

And half a cubit = 27.5/2 = 13.75 inches

Briefly, the measure of the 50 cubits is its connection to the 50 gates of Binah, the upper spiritual dimension of Understanding, and should be noted if one wants to use the last three lines of the Ana B’koach as a gateway.  This is also an allusion to the 50-year jubilee period that the Torah commands us to count.

As for the hidden entrance 55 ft up being on the 19th level of the pyramid is not so surprising to those initiated to its secrets, or entrusted to keep its secrets.  As the kabbalists well knew back then 55 is numerically in Hebrew represented by the letters Nun (50) and Hei (5) and the ordinal value of Nun (14) and Hei (5) together sum to 19.  Meanwhile, it was also well know that the two Letters Hei (H) of the YHVH were both gateways and while the lower Hei(H), representing the world of Malchut, maintains its value of 5, the upper Hei(H), representing Binah rises to the level of 50. Together, they are 55.  The secret to all this is found in Genesis 42:2, when Jacob tells his sons to go down to Egypt, and thus begin the 210 years of exile there.   I will explain this in another brief article shortly, for now, please just note that the verse begins with the Hebrew word Hineh (HNH) containing the 2 gates (HH) and the (NH).

Given the spiritual importance of  Alter of the Future Holy Temple, and of any  entrance, it’s not so surprising the the pyramid’s entrance was hidden 55 feet high, especially with what we know (and will reveal in subsequent articles) about the advanced scientific knowledge programmed into the pyramid’s dimensions.

Nevertheless, before we actually enter the pyramid we should ask what the simple connection is between: the pyramid’s capstone being 32 ft x 32 ft; and the Future Temple’s Alter being 32 cubits x 32 cubits at its base; also with the Alter’s summit platform being 55 ft x 55 ft; and the base of the entire pyramid being 55/2 ft x 55/2 ft; and with the entire pyramid’s base perimeter (3025 ft) also being 55 ft x 55 ft.

Basically what’s the deeper, spiritual, connection between 32 and 55?

It’s Kavod, G-d’s Glory.

The numerical value of Kavod (KBVD) is 32 and when you add its ordinal value you get 55, so both these figures were intertwined into the pyramid’s structure to represent the Glory of G-d,.

The great Pyramid never stood for some Egyptian Pharoah, who never occupied the Pyramid. When Al Mamoun blasted his way in and the 3 gigantic granite plugs were remove from the ascending passage, all the chambers were empty–no pharaoh, no retinue, no gold, no hieroglyphics, nor any carvings of any kind, just lots of secret knowledge hidden in the pure numerical dimensions.

That’s not to say there was no power there, just none tied to pagan gods of beliefs.

Shabbat Shalom


Chanukah: Eight days of Miracles Designed to bring Mashiach

Chanukah: Eight days of Miracles Designed to Bring Mashiach

It’s as innocent as the child’s dreidel, or the chocolate gelt. Four sides corresponding to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), but 4 sides engraved with the Hebrew Letters G, H, N, and Sh. Four letters whose numerical value add to to 358, that of Mashiach, the Messiah.

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

The oil lasted 8 days because the Light of Chanukah, Mashiach Light lasted 8 days, not the other way around. As soon as the special Light of Mashiach (Or Ganuz) was revealed into our existence, it was hidden. I learned from my teacher that on the first Shabbat of Creation, it was brought out for 32 hours then hidden away for the time of the Messiah. But for 8 days every year we can taste of the Light.

Chanukah Meditations

It appears the purpose of Channukah is to bring Mashiach.

Let’s start with the books of Maccabees dating (for right or wrong) the first war in 3585 HC with the numerical value of Mashiach being 358.

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

That explained, we can note that the sum of all the Torah occurrences of the words “first” through “eighth”—echad, sheni, shlishi, reve’i, chamishi, shishi, sheve’I, and shemeni—is (189+125+2+2+2+2+0+0) = 322 and since the sum of days (numbers) 1-8 representing all the summary Chanukah lights for the 8 days is 36 , and (322 + 36) = 358. And while 36 is just the result of rounding off the numerical term 35.8, the number 36 to the kabbalists represents the lamed-vav tzaddikim, or 36 righteous souls necessary at all times to maintain our existence in the universe.

The Blessings

The start of all blessings:

When start the blessing with the word Baruch, we need to keep in mind that it has the value (when using the caf sofit) of 708, which is the same as that of the 42 letters of the upper Mem-Bet, the Name YHVH through 3 iterations. This is no coincidence as it is from this Name that the blessings flow through the 6 levels (dimensions) of zeir anpin and into our world. It is also for this reason that the first gate from the Holy of Holies into our world has the dimensions 6 x 7 (the Gate of 42):




L’hadleek Ner Chanukah:

Now regarding the Chanukah blessings on the words L’hadleek Ner Chanukah and the kavanot that we’ve learned from the Arizal, the 3 first letters Lamed, Nun and Chet, spell out in small gematria, 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.

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

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

As explained by the Arizal,the secret of 3 letters N, CH. L and Nachal comes very fittingly considering that the gematria of Chanukah is 89, from the 3 words that comprise the 8th and 9th of the 13 Attributes of G-d : “Notzer Chesed L‘alefim.” The Ari further explains that the 8th sefira (level), which is Binah (Imma/Understanding) is where we are drawing this upper light from. and moreover, that a key secret here is that once the 8th level is tapped into, all 3 upper levels (Binah, Chochma and Keter) are at once available to us.

So the first mediation is on opening up the flowing river (Nachal) from Binah, Chochma and Keter though Binah into Zeir Anpin ( the heavenly ladder that connects our world to Binah (the upper world). Zeir Anpin is represented by the aspect of the Tetragramamton (YVD HE VEV HE) called (Mah) of numerical value 45.

We are further told that Mah combines with Binah through the alef(E) in the letter vav (VEV) to the regressively spelled Name Ehyeh (E, EH EHY EHYH) which is associated with Binah and has a numerical value of 44, together they are 45 + 44 = 89, once again the value of Chanukah. This furthers connects us to the 44 (36 + 8 helper/Shamesh) candles lit during the 8 days of Chanukah.


(Shefa flowing from Binah into Zeir Anpin)

Second Meditation:

The value of the word L’hadleek plus the kolel (1) = (179 +1) = 180, and partially because of this the Arizal tells us to meditate on Av, Sag, Mah aspects of the Tetragrammaton which total (72+63+45) = 180, at this point in the blessing. We’ll explain below what it connects to, as we don’t want to meditate in a vacuum.

Av (YVD HY VYV HY) = 72

Sag (YVD HY VEV HY) = 63

Mah (YVD HE VEV HE) = 45

= 180

Whenever we have a value of 18 or a multiple of it times 10 (sefirot) in the Torah or Kavanot coding, it has the same connection, which as Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed memory explains “All Torah Light is spread by squaring,” is that the square root of 180/10, or 18, is 4.2426. This is significant because 424 is the value for “Mashiach Ben David” and 26 is the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

Now, specific to the Channuka blessing is that the spelled-out (gematria milui) value of the letters nun (NVN) and that of the lamed (LMD) of L’hadleek Ner is also 180, thus giving us yet another connection to “Mashiach Ben David.

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

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

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

Receiving H’Mashiach


Regarding Ner, the Arizal tells us to combine the Names Ehyeh, Elohim, and Adonai with YHVH on 3 different levels to draw down the light:


If we take the first two letters of each Name (EH, EL, ED), they add up to 6 + 31+ 5 = 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, (the Shem Mem-Bet, known as the Ana B’koach).

Then if we take the third letter (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) in each (YHN) they add up to 10 + 5 + 50 = 65 the numerical value of Adonai (EDNY), which leaves (H,YM, Y) which sum to 5 + 50 + 10 = 65, Adonai (EDNY) again.

The main point though is that the 3 Names represent the 42-letter Name and 130, which is the numerical value of the two synonyms, Sinai and Sulam (ladder). Now the total numerical value of the 3 Names (EHYH, ELHYM, EDNY) is 172, and when we add 1 for the kolel, it’s 173, as in the small gematria numerical value for the 42-letter Name, not surprising as the 42-Letter Name preceded them.

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

Now the main point of the Arizal was that the 6 Names (YHVHEHYH, YHVHELHYM, YHVHEDNY)-add to 250, the value of Ner, candle, but if we add 6 as the kolel, we get 256, which is the value for both H’Aron (Ark of the Covenant) and for Aaron who lit the Menorah as channel for us all.

So when we recite Ner, we want to meditate on the 42 Letter name (the Ana B’koach), receiving mazal, letting  Aaron, the only person in the Torah assigned the title Mashiach, be our channel to light the Menorah in our lives and world.

אבג יתץ

קרע שטן

נגד יכש

בטר צתג

חקב טנע

שקו צית

together with the 6 Names merging together as follows.

YHVH – EHYH (Chochma – Ehyeh)

YHVH _ ELHYM (Binah – Elohim)

YHVH – EDNY (Malchut – Adonai)

We draw the light of blessing down from Chochma to Binah to our world, Malchut.

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

So completing the recitation of Baruch though Ner, we want to have in mind drawing down the light from the Upper 42-Letter Name to the Lower 42-Letter Name though the 3 YHVH’s and into the 3 Names (Ehyeh, Elohim and Adonai) and thus igniting the spark of  Mashiach consciousness in all of us.

The Candle

The candle we’re lighting is the light of the Torah itself as evidenced by the spelled out, gematria milui of the letters (nun-resh) of Ner (candle): (NVN RShY) is (106 + 510) = 616, which is the numerical value of H’Torah, which helps explain Proverb 6:23:

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

The Shamesh

The Shamesh, or 9th candle is much more than a simple helper candle.The 9th sefira is that of Chochma, Wisdom. and the unification from above that is assocaited with the 9th sefira is YHVH x EHYH or in numerical terms 26 x 21 = 546, which is the sum of the initials of all 10 sefirot, a clue that this unification helps us draw the energy down through all 10 sefirot.

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

This is an important unification because 546 is the numerical value of koteret, (the incense lit at the inner alter of the Holy Temple) as it says in Proverbs 27:9 “Oil and incense rejoice the heart,” and as the Ari explains, “And the inner altar and the Menorah stood together to give joy to all, as is written.”

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

And not only does the number 9 divided by the small gematria of the 1st line of 42-letter Name = 73.14159, or extremely precisely 70 + Pi (3.14159..), while the numerical value of the 2nd line is 9 x 9 x 9, one of the reasons the line is utilized in the Shofar blowings of 9 beats each.

אבג יתץ

קרע שטן

So while lighting the Shamesh if you can connect to the first two lines of the 42-letter name keep in mind to lift the world of illusion from the 70 nations, elevating spirituality out of the physicality to bring about Moshiach

The 25th of Kislev

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

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

So note that the 25 letters in the verse “Shma Israel, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad” (Hear O Israel, G-d our Lord is One) is found at Devarim 6:4 and the word Chanukah (ChNV-CH) can be broken down to the two numerical values 64 (ChNV) and 25 (CH), and moreover that the numerical value of the first and last words in that verse, Shma (ShMY) and Echad (EChD) plus the kolel (1) = 410 + 13 + 1 = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

Further to this line of reasoning, and as connected by the Zohar, are the 24 days of Kislev that proceed Chanukah and the 24 letters in the Baruch Shem phrase that follows the Shma Israel phrase.

So on the first night before lighting we should connect to the Shma israel and mediate that we are completing the Torah as in the days of Mashiach.

The OiI

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

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

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

The Arizal further explains that the oil in the Menorah and by transference our chanukiyas represents the consciousness of chochma and the incense represents Binah, thus together they are the partzufs of Abba and Imma.

The 8 Nights of Lights

The 44 Candles Sweeten the Judgment

On a simple level, over the 8 nights, we’re lighting 44 candles in total including the shamesh every night, these corresponding to the ordinal value of the letters in Chanukah (ChNVCH), which is 44. It also corresponds to first letters of all 10 plagues, which also add up to 44. So you can see the power to create miracles is built into every aspect of these 8 days.

Moreover, the first plague was blood, dam, also of numerical value 44, and as the Arizal explains “the word “m’damei“, whose numerical value (89) equals that of the word “Chanukah“, is rooted in the letters dalet and mem, which spell the Hebrew word for “blood”. Blood represents the negative powers of judgment, our mission it is to sweeten. Via the 44 (the numerical value of dalet, 4, and mem, 40) lights we kindle throughout Chanukah (including the shammas) and the awakening of consciousness they embody, the kelipot become nullified before us.” Thus with every candle we light, we can sweeten the judgment in out lives and in the world.

And note also that 44 is numerical value of the regressive spelling of the higher name of G-d, Ehyeh, connecting us to Chochma and Binah;

(E – EH – EHY – EHYH)

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

In the same way, the Shamesh would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36. Thus 120 + 36 = 156 or 6 X 26 representing the YHVH, and thus 2 X 78 for mazal.

The Arizal explains that the eight days of Chanukah are, or end up, at the level of hod, the same as a brit whose 8 days expire at hod before the brit can be performed at the level of yesod. Well, considering this, it’s noteworthy that if we assume that all our candles/oil last for 8 days, then in total, we are lighting 120 lights (which would correspond to the 120 permutations of Elohim) plus the 36 lights for the 8 Shamesh that we light, totaling 156, the numerical value for Yosef, who represents the level of Yesod. It’s also the value of Zion.

The 8 Nights of Lights

Now know this for every candle we light below, one is lit above. So for the 156 plus 1 collective one we light each Hanukkah, another 157 are lit above, making 314 in total, with 314 being the numerical value of Shadai (ShDY) and of Mettatron. And that if we consider all the cumulative lit Chanukah lights as a multiple of 8 days: 1 x 3 x 6 x 10 x 15 x 21 x 28 x 36 = 1008 then the 1008 plus1 candles we light, above and below total 2018 candles in all each year in preparation for the Messiah in the year 2018 CE (5778 HC), our inheritance.

And Zion, of numerical value 156, is the same as Yosef, who represents Yesod of Malchut, where the light of Binah ends up on the 8th day and the point where all the divine sustenance funnels into out lives and world. Moreover, Zion, of numerical value 156, is found 107 times in Tanakh and the sum of all the positive integers to 107 is 5778.

Chanukah, a Special Light

The letters of Mashiach (MShYCh) spell out Madlikim Shmona Yemei Chanukah (lighting up eight days of Chanukah).

Chanukah Gelt

Even the parve chocolate gelt we give to our children on Chanukah connects to Mashiach, as the Aramaic word for gelt is Dami (DMY) of numerical value 54, and since 5778 is the sum of all the integers from1 to 107 and 5778 = 107 x 54, then 54, and thus Dami (Gelt), plays yet another role in connecting all of us to the coming of H’Mashiach, B’H very soon

The Menorah is a gift to the worthy.

The Ari in writing about Chanukah explains that the Menorah was made miraculously when Moses threw a kikar (measure) of gold into the furnace and prayed to G-d to fashion it. It immediately emerged fully formed. This further connects the Menorah to the sefira of chochma, which is like a gift bestowed upon a person worthy to receive it.

So bring joy to your heart and joy to the world this Chanukah and help bring the gift of Mashiach into our lives.

What We Need is a Leader!

We need a leader. What does a leader do?

Provide direction. What direction are we going now? Anyone know?

That’s why we need a leader.

There have been several great Patriarchs and numerous great tzaddikim (righteous souls) but only 3 leaders in Biblical history that the kabbalists have connected to the Messiah and the final redemption: Yosef (Joseph), Moshe (Moses) and King David.

The front pages of todays papers show Israeli soldiers dragging Israelis from their homes. Three days after 173 people were killed in MumBai and devout Jews were massacred in their home. Is this direction? What message is being sent to the world? To the spiritual world?

Can anyone think that giving up the entrance to the Cave and the Home of the Patriarchs (Machpelah) will bring peace to Israel, to the world. What spiritual message is that sending?

Can anyone think that giving most of Israel to the Palestine’s will solve the problems of the disgruntled masses throughout Arabia or their monarchies who need scapegoats? What about Iran; do they really care if Palestine is a state?

Can anyone think that giving away Israeli land and homes will bring peace to Israel, the world? How egocentric is that thought? It’s saying that all the world’s problems and anger are based on whether you possess a plot of land or not. Do you really think there would be peace in the world, in the mid-east, if Israel gave away everything and ceased to exist? Of course not. People fight all over the world over every little thing whether there are Jews present or not. And they fought fierce devastating battles all over the world for the 5708 Biblical years before Israel had any land at all. Giving up the land is NOT the answer.

Peace will never come from giving up land. It will come from giving up ego.

Peace will never come from Jews fighting (arguing with) Jews. It will come from unity.

Why is peace so hard to come by? Because it is so hard to forgo our egos and unify.

We all have our opinions, but until we all realize that they are irrelevant. If you’re angry right now with that statement, that is ego, and that is exactly what we all need to cut out of ourselves. Because that means that we value our individual opinions more than peace, more than Mashiach (Messiah) consciousness.

That’s why we need a leader. We need someone to rally around and whose opinions we follow without trying to bring him down by opposing him with our own.

That Israel was granted statehood and land in 1948 CE, 70 years before the prophesied date of the Mashiach and the Geula, the final redemption in 2018 (5778) was no fluke. It was divinely arranged. As can be read and should be read in The Divine Calendar, Abraham was born in 1948 HC and G-d made his Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC, and the midpoint of King David’s 70 year life was in 2889 HC, the midpoint from Adam to Messiah in 5778.

We, our generation, have been given the right (not a foregone conclusion) to enter Zion. Moses prayer 515 times, every hour from Rosh Hashannah to Hoshanna Rabba for that right. G-d asked him to stop because on the 516th time his wish would have been granted. But that wasn’t the timing G-d wanted. 66.6 jubilee years ago in 2448 HC, we proved we weren’t ready during Moses 40 day absence. What does that say about our ability to succeed without a leader. He was gone for only 40 days.

Here is a secret about Rosh Hashannah and also about that absence and what was missing:

Rosh Hashannh (RESh HShNH), the head of the year (you can see the blog on the letters and cosmos as to why it is the head of the year) can be split up into (REShH ShNH), making the numerical value 506 and the second word as Shanah, year. The value 506 is synonymous with Ahavatchinam, “Unconditional Love” and is not only the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach), but a value repeated 3 times in it’s last 7 letters. The hidden measure is Rosh Hashannh is the moment in the cosmic calendar that we can tap into “Unconditional Love.” The other message for those that want to know, is that that cosmic energy is available to us whenever we do the the Ana B’koach with the conviction we bring to Rosh Hashannah. Incidentally, most kabbalists agree that the 42-Letter Name was what the high priest recited in the Holy of Holies.

Now, the other secret here is in the 40 days. In order for the Messiah to be present, the comsos must be properly aligned, which mean all 3 primordial letters (energy archetypes) must be present, and as per the Sefer Yetzirah, Abraham’s Book of Formation, these are the 3 Mothers: Alef, Mem, Shin (EMSh). In the year 2448, on Rosh Hashannah, RESh HShNH, the Alef (E) and Shin (Sh), only the Mem was missing. Moshe himself, embodied and carried the spiritual energy of the primordial letter Mem, spelled (MM), and mem has the numerical value of 40, so if the Israelites had waited 40 days, and Moshe would have appeared as scheduled the Mem would have been complete and the 3 Mothers (EMSh) would have been cosmically aligned. The first Mem would have gone to Rosh REShM, making a numerical value of 541, Israel, and incidentally that would have lined up the 7 Doubles (BGDCPRT) as well, but that’s for another blog).

And the second Mem would have gone to HShNH, making MHNSh or (MHSh N), or (HShM, N), or (MShH,N). The secrets here are multiple, as the numerical value of these 4 letters is 395, that of H’Shama’im, (Heaven) and the letters MShH spell Moshe (Moses), and permute into Hashem (HShM) and also the 5th of the 72 Names (triplets), the one for healing, MHSh. Moreover, the letter Nun (N) has the numerical value of 50, representing the 50 Gates of Binah (understanding) that the we will reach when Mashiach arrives and that Moses was at and only 1 hour short on that 50th day from the 1st of Elul (Rosh Chodesh Elul) to Hoshannah Rabba. And if you recall, it was on the 1st of Elul that Moses ascended for the 2nd set of Tablets. And one more secret embedded here is that the 3 non-primordial letters spell H’NR, “The Candle.” It was the Light in the darkness that we missed then. All it took that time was one more candle.

In another vein, the kabbalistic secret is that the numerical values for Yosef (Joseph), Moshe (Moses) and David add up to 156 + 345 + 14 = 515. It will take 1 more leader to reach 516.

Another kabbalah secret, or Bible code is you will, is that the final letters of Torah phrases point to the future, and we must add 1 more to the final letters of Yosef (Joseph), Moshe (Moses) and David (PHD) to get the value of King (Melech), of numerical value 90. In the same way, if we replace David with the appellation King David, it still takes exactly 1 more to get 611, the numerical value of Torah.

Anyway you look at it we need 1 more, an alef, the leader to get where we want to go. The alef stands for Adam (EDM), in the Adam-David-Mashiach, but we’re not expecting Adam to come back; rather, we’re expected to reunite back as one soul as we were in Adam. One (1) stands for one (1) soul united. And we can’t unite unless we have one (1) leader to get behind. And that leader won’t appear unless we set aside our egos, personal agendas and desires and make a space (makom) for the Messiah (H’Mashiach) to enter.

Collectively the 3 leaders lived exactly 300 years, 6 jubilee years, which means we’ve been more or less direction-less for 5478 years, and 3330 since the giving of the Torah. Patriarchs, Prophets, Rabbis, and even some important Kings have filled in many of the gaps, and Torah has sustained us throughout, but now, more than ever, we a leader for the final push to the end of darkness, which incidentally has the numerical value of 333.

300 is the gematria for various Names of G-d (YHVH, Elohim, etc) in multiple way but we don’t need proof of Yosef’s, Moshe’s or David’s divine empowerment; what we need is a leader for the next 9 years, a period that promises to be full of turmoil and darkness. We don’t have a lot of time. Let’s all make the effort to make the space for the Messiah.

The final letters of Adam-David-Mashiach (MDCh) sum to, alternatively, 52, signifying Malchut, our world, physicality, and 612, using sofit/final letter gematria), which is the numerical value of Brit, Covenant. The Covenant is meant to be fulfilled. And we know when. Who it gets fulfilled for depends on our actions in the physical world, not how much we pray. It can be for everyone, but only if we’re united. To unite, we must individually make the choice and vow that this is what we really want. Then we must set our egos aside and let the Messiah in.

If we continue thinking only about ourselves, we will get want we desire, total chaos, darkness.

When you add light (Or) to darkness, you get 207 + 333 = 540. Add 1and you get 541, Israel

But add “the Light” (H’Or) to darkness, and you get 212 + 333 = 545. Add 1and you get 546, the Tree-of-Life.

Once we decide that that is what we really want we will get it. We will get our leader.

Make space in your hearts, yes, but even more important, make space in your lives for the One (1).

And once we give up the ego and the personal agendas, they won’t want the land. The entire world listened to Joseph. Four times as many people from other nations followed Moses than there were Israelites with him. And because of David we had the Holy Temple, and as the Zohar describes, him , David was Rosh Goyim, head of all the nations.  They wont desire the land anymore; they will desire the Light, the Messiah.

B”H we find the strength within us to make room for H’Mashiach.
