Creation by Design; Renewed Every year.

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 7th 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 7th day, Malchut, firmly establishing the 7 sefirot and 7 days of Creation in the 1st verse of the 2nd 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 (ELHYM) it represents the sefira of Binah (understanding).

And as for Elohim (ELHYM) 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 2nd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality was received on Shavuot 2448, or the exact Western date 5/9/1313 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.

Sukkot Once Again: Time to Revitalize and Nourish the 70 Nations.

This year, more than ever in our history, more than ever in the 3330 years since we entered the desert, it is imperative we make the Sukkot connections with conscious and utilize the G-d given technology to make the highest possible linkages to Binah/Moshiach for ourselves, for Israel and for the world. When we’re called to the Torah we’re supposed to channel and share our energy with the entire congregation.  Even more so when we’re called before the King of Kings and receive his blessings and energy for the new year; we are suppose to share it with the whole world, hence the holiday of Sukkot.  Through the proper meditations and the implementation of the ancient knowledge with the proper traditional technology the well-springs will open and flow for everyone.

We are repeating and updating below an article that we have posted over the years to explain many of the secrets and kavannot of the shakings of the lulov within the sukkah. This year, if we shake with our hearts we will shake the world awake and shake open the gates. Let’s do it together.

The Shakings

Regarding the daily shakings of the four species, there are 5 sets, each of which is done in the 6 directions of the cube, for a total of 30. This corresponds to the 30 blasts of the shofar in each set on Rosh Hashannah and the large letter Lamed(ל), which is spiritually connected to Binah and has the numerical value 30, that is found in the Torah reading just prior to Rosh Hashannah. The word Lamed (למד) has the numerical value of 74 or 70 +4, representing the 70 Nations, the 4 species, and the 4 exiles, and not coincidentally the large Ayin (ע) and Dalet (ד) of the values 70 and 4 respectively of the Shema.

That Lamed (ל) connects to the Lamed (ל)of Lulav (לולב). According to Abraham Avinu, it is also the letter Lamed(ל) that along with the letter Pe (פ) controls the month of Tishrei (Libra), the month in which we do both the shofar blowings and the shakings. It is also the lamed (ל)of the word Aleph (אלפ, the first), and when the controlling letters of Tishrei, the letters Lamed(ל) and Pe (פ) are completed with the letter Aleph (א) they spell out the word Aleph (אלפ), connecting them to keter and the beginning, as in Aleph B’Tishrei (permutated to spell Bereshit, the beginning).  It also connects the month to premordial Aleph (א) and the upcoming 1000 (eleph, אלפ) years of Binah.

If you have not figured it out yet, most things in Kabbalah come in threes(3’s) or triplets, corresponding to the 3 column archetype of the our 3-dimensional universe. The 3 shakings that we make per each of the 6 directions of our essential cubic sukkah, correspond to the 3 beats per type of blast of the shofar that we just did on Rosh Hashannah. Therefore, there are 18 shakings in total per set, and as Rav Abraham Brandwein of blessed memory points out, “The Lulav hints at the vertebral column that has 18 vertebrae and every movement indicates vitality. Thus all 4 species need to be damp and alive and not dry.” The 18 shakings also corresponds to the value of the word, chai(חי), life. And straightening this connection is that the word value of lulav is 68, as in chaim (חיים),life and the Tree-of-life.

With 18 shaking per each of the 5 sets plus the shaking at the blessing there are 91 total shakings per day, which corresponds to teh numerical value of amen and the all-important unification of G-d’s Names the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) with Adonai (אהדונהי) that we should meditate on when we same Amen. 91 is most appropriately the value of the word Succah (סוכה)itself, which helps us to integrate the inner and outer light.

Moreover, at 30 daily shakings x 7 days, there are 210 total shakings, as in the 210 years of Egyptian exile. The 210 total shakings in the complete cycle of 7 days are very significant and are not coincidentally related to the 210 years of Egyptian exile.  It is well known that the maximum height of a sukkah is 20 cubits, though what is concealed in that cubic space that is contained within that maximum 20 cubit cube are 20 concentric cubes, each diminished by 1 cubit at a time. In other words, there are 20 cubes within one another like Russian dolls: one of 20 cubits³, the next of 19 cubits³, then 18 through …1 cubit³.  If these cubes were stacked on top of one another, we would have a towering stack of 20 cubes equal to 20+19+18…1, which equals 210 cubits in total height and 44,100 cubits³ in total volume.  The number 20 (twenty) in Hebrew is written Esrim (עשרים) of numerical value 620, the same as the word, Keter, the highest dimension, and the same as the 620 letters in the 10 Commandments. This is like the Holy of Holies itself which measures 20 x 20 cubits square.

When we reach Keter in our counting or stacking from 1…18+19+20, we reach 210 levels, or years in the case of the Egyptian exile, so is it coincidental that we also reach the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza at exactly 210 levels and 210 cubits in height?  The volume of those 20 cubes, 44,100 cubits³, is awfully evocative of the Hebrew word for truth, Emet of numerical value 441.

Why make this comparison? Because just as the pyramid was an antennae built to all the right codes and specifications, so is your sukkah. It is designed to help us end our exile and connect us to the highest levels, allowing us to tap into and share the pure and powerful energy of Binah.

Then when the 3 shakings per direction are considered over the full 7 days, there are 210 x 3 or 630 total shakings in the 7 days. 630 is 10 x 63, the value of the Tetragrammaton in the aspect of Binah. The number 10 always corresponds to the 10 sefirot (dimensions), and in this case to the 10 sub-dimensions (inner sefirot) within Binah. During the entire process of Sukkot, we’re drawing down the energy from Yesod of Ima (Binah) so we see how the overall Binah connections are very fitting and part and parcel to the technology involved in the shakings.

For these reasons it is very important to do the full 7 day cycle of shakings, and even though we do not physically handle the lulov and etrog we should go through the motions and meditations as if we were.  This is what Rav Berg of blessed memory did and we diligently went through each one with their associated kavonot. This is what I suggest you do as well. It is 5778; it is time to utilize ALL of the technology available to us.

Over the 7 days of Sukkot, we’re making 70 sacrifices to share the energy with the 70 nations of the world. Each of these sacrifices corresponds to a specific one of the sub-sefirot in order as we descend through them during the 7 day period.

The 4 Species

Regarding the four species: As we know from the Arizal, the four species correspond to the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה): Hadas (י), Aravah (ה), lulav (ו) and Etrog (ה). So since the numerical values of Hadas and Aravah = 346 (שמו), and those two species correspond to (יה), they spell out  “The Name YH(יה שמו).” The three sides of the sukkah itself forms the shape of the letter Bet (ב), completing the B’Y-H ShMV (ביה–שמו) sequence that comprise the 6 letters that occur at the top of the 248 columns of the Torah that are specifically not vavs(ו) and whose numerical value is that of H’Moshiach (the Messiah).

As for the lulov, it can be said that the word lulav (לולב) represents the entire Torah in two different ways since it begins with (ל) and ends in (ב)  and since it also ends in the letter combination Lamed-Bet (לב), as in the first (ב) and last (ל) letters of the Torah. This letter reversal is an allusion to the recycling of the Torah that occurs during this period, when we read the last verse of the Torah and immediately twist it back to the beginning and read from Bereshit.

While the numerical value Hadas and lulov together (68+69) equals 137, the numerical value of kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and “parallel,” the numerical value of Hadas (הדס) and Aravah (ערבה) and lulov (לולב) together equals 414, which is twice the numerical value of Or, light,  2 x 207, thus representing the running and returning light.

As for the 4th species, the etrog (אֶתְרוֹג) has the numerical value 610, as in parnesa (sustenance) and ma’aser (tithing), and their corresponding kabbalistic meditations for drawing the Shefa into our lives.  This numerical connection makes logical sense, considering that the Etrog corresponds to the malchut of yesod, the place where we earn our parnesa (sustenance).

Nevertheless, the total value of the 4 species (610+277+68+69) is 1024, which not only matches the 1024 unique word values in the Torah and is 32² , as in the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-Life, but is also representative of the number of vertices (points) on a 10-dimensional hypercube.  In simpler terms the 4 species combined connect us to the 1024 portals of the Torah in the spiritual hyperspace (Binah).  Moreover, not coincidentally 32 x 32 cubits is the measure of the Holy Alter in the center of the courtyards of the Third Temple.

Fortunately, this connection to the 1024 portals happens for us automatically once we incorporate that understanding into the consciousness of our shakings. To fulfill our responsibility of sharing the light with the 70 nations we can connect to the 4 final letters (בסהג) of the names of the 4 species, which add up to 70.

These connections that have existed as is for 3330 years are all the more imperative since the 4th exile is supposed to end 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 (5708), which would be this year, 5778 (2018 CE).

Given the importance of the sharing of the light with the 70 nations at the end of the 70th year, the letter Ayin (ע) with the numerical value 70 stands out as the 16th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, so it’s not coincidental that there are 16 letters in the names of the 4 species. The sum of the ordinal value of those 16 letters is 151, as in the value of the Name, Ehyeh (אהיה) spelled out (אלפ–הה–יוד–הה) which is the Name of G-d that it is at the level of Binah from where we are drawing down the energy into the 4 species. I highly suggest you use a kabbalistic siddur (prayer book) for doing the shakings in order to make the proper, purest, and highest connections. It is complicated technology and when we are going through the repeated circuits of the shakings we become one with the mechanism. It needs us at the center to manually do the movements and make the right visual connections to the associated Names of G-d and everything else is divinely driven.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value of the letters in lulav is 32, as in the numerical value of the letters Lamed and Bet (לב), which spells Lev, the Hebrew word for heart. This is another connection to the 32 paths of Wisdom, which is in essence the Tree-of-life (Etz Chaim), as represented on Sukkot by the lulav, whose standard gematria value is 68, which as we noted earlier is that of chaim (life).

We mentioned earlier that the Alter in the very center of the Courtyards of the Third Holy Temple is 32 x 32 cubits. Since the Inner Courtyard measure 100 x 100 cubits, the distance from the Alter to the edge of the Inner Courtyard is 68 cubits on all sides.  So when stand in our sukkahs doing the shakings, we can connect to and imagine that we are at the central Alter in the Third Holy Temple and extending our lulavs outward, metaphorically and metaphysically, to the boundaries of the Inner Courtyard.  The Third Holy Temple is already here spiritually and the more we connect to it the quicker it will be here physically.

The complete gematria value of the word Lulav (לולב) is 68 + 32 = 100, which is also the value of sach (סככ), the roof (covering) of the Sukkah, an extremely important component in the Sukkot technology. The sach represents keter, the highest sefira, and is evocative of the height of the Third Holy Temple, 100 cubits.

So when we shake the Lulav we not only want to bring it back to our heart, but we want to mediate on the light and love channeling back and forth through it, as we stand both in our succahs and in the center of the Third Temple, channeling for the entire world.

Now, if we add all the elements of the holiday together, we get 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215, which as we discussed in our previous article is the numerical value of “70 Languages,” and therefore representative of the 70 Nations that sit on the branches of the Tree-of-Life waiting to be watered from our connections. Like the first 4 words of the Shema, the complete value of the first 9 letters of the Torah is also 1215, as are the 11 unique letters in the Torah’s first verse.

In the portion of the Torah read just prior to Sukkot, there are 11 extraneous dots over the letters, a phenomenon that occurs 10 times in the Torah. Now, while the last of those 11 letters in the words under the 11 dots is the letter ayin, with a value of 70, the complete value (standard and ordinal) of all 11 letters under the dots is 422, which is the exact numerical value of the word “seventy (70).” These, of course, connect to the destruction of the first Two Holy Temples in –422 BCE and in 70 CE, respectively, as has already been detailed and chronicled in The Divine Calendar.

Once again, it is our responsibility to mediate on sharing this light with the 70 Nations, and this is why we were blessed to be the channels and given these magnificent divine tools to use. As it says in Isaiah 56:7, ” I will bring them to My holy Mountain and make them rejoice in My House of Prayer…For My House will be called the House of Prayer for all the nations.”

These self-same 70 Nations are gathering this year to attack Israel, as the Zohar prophesied nearly 2000 years ago. Every manufactured twist in the world tension brings the world closer to global war and mayhem, yet by fulfilling our G-d given role, we can inject enough Binah consciousness into the world, and have mercy rain down instead.

Sukkot is usually the time of joy, when the energy of rejoicing is drawn down upon us by our actions within the succah for the entire year. This yea, it is the time of action, when what we do has the power to determine the sake of humanity. Evil and its conduit, the Erev Rav are running rampant throughout the world. Physically, it may be too late; spiritually, we have the tools we need to triumph.  This Sukkot, let us put joy in our hearts; let us stand at the Alter of the Holy Temple as we stand within our Sukkahs; let us use the gyrating wand of the 4 species to channel the energy of Binah into our lives and out to the whole world; and let us bring Moshiach consciousness to the world once and for all.

Chag Sameach

Ezra

Sukkot is Upon Us.

We’re going in a new direction soon and will begin explaining the meaning and significance of the dimensions of the Third Temple. All the proportions we’ve learned about through the Torah, the Names, and the universal constants will have new meaning as we explore the place where all the Shefa (life-force) flows through into our world. Before the Third Temple can be constructed we must understand it. It already exists spiritually, but just knowing the dimensions and erecting stone walls won’t do it. We have the knowledge and it’s coming time to apply it. When we take the process and the knowledge run it through our hearts we will connect to the Tree-of-Life, the greater universe, the Cosmos, and the Holy Third Temple. And then it will be time.

A long time ago, I promised to explain and expand on Abraham Avinu’s layout of the Cosmos first delineated in his Sefer Yetzirah, and now we will do so in the context of the Holy Temple’s design. G-d willing, we will all understand.

When Noach sent out the dove 3 times to find dry land it was an allusion to the 3 Holy Temples, and to the 3 times the numbers 5778 and 2019 appear in the first 1000 (Aleph) digits of Pi (See There’s Nothing Random About the Universe).

It’s almost time to let the dove loose again. There is a lot of work to be done this year and the holiday of Sukkot is almost upon us. They are calling for rain in New York and that’s not good. We’re going to need the power of the sukkah and of the unifications we can make in it in order to do our work properly so we’re going to need everyone’s consciousness in a place of unity, love, and sharing to stave off the rain this year. Let’s all spend the next few days thinking, speaking, and listening through our hearts and the blessings will come to all.

I’m repeating and updating below an article posted a year ago to explain many of the secrets and kavannot of the shakings of the lulov within the sukkah. This year, if we shake with our hearts we will shake the world awake. Let’s do it together.

The Shakings

Regarding the daily shakening of the four species, they would seem to correspond to (5 sets x 6 directions) the 30 blasts of the shofar, and the numerical gematria value (30) of the large Lamed (connected to Binah) in the Torah. Lamed has the numerical value of 74 or 70 +4, which as you’ll see later, representing the 70 Nations and 4 species.

That Lamed connects to the Lamed of Lulav. It’s also the Lamed that along with the letter Pe controls the month of Tishrei (Libra), according to Abraham Avinu, in which we do both the shofar blowings and the shakings. It’s also the lamed of the word aleph (ELP, the first), and when the controlling letters of Tishrei are completed with the letter Aleph (Aleph-Lamed-Pe), they connect to both keter and the beginning, as in Aleph B’Tishrei (permutated to spell Bereshit, the beginning).

With the 3 shakings per direction, corresponding to the 3 beats per type of blast of the shofar, there are 18 total shakings per set, and as Rav Abraham Brandwein points out, “The Lulav hints at the vertebral column that has 18 vertebrae and every movement indicates vitality. Thus all 4 species need to be damp and alive and not dry.” The 18 corresponds to the value of the word, chai, (life). And straightening this connection is that the word value of lulav is 68, as in chaim (life)

With 18 shaking per each of the 5 sets there are 91 total shakings per day, which corresponds to amen and teh all-important unification of G-d’s Names that it represents (YHVH-ADNY ) and to the value of the word Succah itself.

Moreover, at 30 daily shakenings x 7 days, there are 210 total shakings, as in the 210 years of Egyptian exile. And when the 3 shakings per direction are considered, there are 210 x 3 or 630 total shakings in the 7 days. 630 is 10 x 63, the value of the Tetragramamton in the aspect of Binah. The 10 always corresponds to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and in this case to the 10 sub-dimensions (inner sefirot) within Binah. During the entire process of Sukkot, we’re drawing down the energy from Yesod of Ima (Binah) so the Binah connections are very fitting and part and parcel to the technology involved in the shakings.

Over the 7 days of Sukkot, we’re making 70 sacrifices to share the energy with the 70 nations of the world. Each of these sacrifices corresponds to a specific one of the sub-sefirot in order as we descend through them during the 7 day period.

Regarding the four species: As we know from the Arizal, the four species correspond to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH): Hadas (Yud), Aravah (Hei), lulav (vav) and Etrog (hei). So since the numerical values of Hadas and Aravah = 346 (Shmo), the two species above correspond to Y-H Shmo (the Name of YH), as in 5 of the 6 letters that occur at the top of the 248 columns of the Torah that are not vavs, excluding the initial Bet of bereshit. But the three sides of the sukkah itself forms the shape of the letter Bet, completing the B’Y-H ShMV sequence.

The missing Bet from the B’Y-H ShMV sequence would also appear to be the Bet in lulav (LVLB), since the word lulav represents teh whole Torah in two different ways in that it begins with (L) and ends in (B) and also ends in the letter combination Lamed-Bet (LB), as in the first (B) and last (L) letters of the Torah. This letter reversal is an allusion to the recycling of the Torah that occurs during this period when we read the last verse of the Torah and immediately twist it back to the beginning and read from Bereshit.

Moreover, the numerical value of Hadas and Aravah and lulov together = 414 (kaddish) or 2 x 207 (the numerical value of Or/light), and thus twice light, representing the running and returning light

And as in known from chazal, etrog has the value 610 as in parnesa (sustenance) and ma’aser (tithing) and their various meditations for drawing the Shefa into our lives. The Etrog corresponds to the malchut of yesod, the place where we earn our parnesa (sustenance).

But the total value of the 4 species = 1024, which is 256 x 4 with 256 being the value or the Ark of the Covenant (also Aaron) and 1024 being both 210 as in the 210 years of exile yet again, and also 1024 represents the 1024 unique word values in the Torah, which is not coincidence and not coincidentally 32 x 32 which when we study the structure of the Third Temple, we’ll understand how they all relate and relate to the 32 paths of the Tree-of-Life.

Furthermore, as we meditate on ending the 4th exile by sharing light with the 70 nations through the 70 sacrifices, it’s appropriate that the sum of the 4 final letters (B,G,H,S) in the names of the 4 species add up to 70, while that of the Hadas and Arava alone add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai.

And it’s almost needless to mention that the end of the 4th exile is supposed to happen 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948 (5708)

Interestingly, and not coincidentally, the sum of the ordinal value of the 16 x 4) letters in the names of the 4 species is 151, as in the value of the Name, Ehyeh (EHYH) spelled out (milui) and also of the word, mikve.
Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value of the letters in lulav is 32, as in the numerical value of the letters Lamed and Bet (LB), which spells Lev, the Hebrew word for heart, and as previously mentioned the last and first letters in the Torah. Yet another connection to the 32 paths of Wisdom, which is in essence the Tree-of-life, represented by the lulav, whose standard gematria value is 68, that of chaim (life). And note that the Inner Courtyard of the Third Temple is 100 cubits by 100 cubits and the Alter in the center of it is 32 x 32 cubits, leaving space of 68 cubits all around.

Moreover, when we add Lulav’s standard value and its ordinal one, we get 68 + 32 = 100, the value of, sach (SCC), the very important roof (covering) of the Sukkah and the representation value of keter, the highest sefira.

So when we shake the Lulav we not only want to bring it back to our heart but we want to mediate the light and love channeling back and forth through it, as we stand both in our succahs and in the center of the Third Temple

Now, if we add all the elements of the holiday together, we get 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215 but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed:

For example the 11 unique letters used in creation of the first verse of the Torah connect with the 11 dots above the letters that occur in the same parsha (portion) as the large letter lamed, and together they help us convert curses into blessings through the 11 incenses (etc). These 11 unique letters have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214, and 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations for whom we’re making the sacrifices. Also, 1214 is the exact value for the Hebrew phrase (ZYRVP HEVTYVT) meaning “permutation of the letters.”

Now, while the last of the 11 letters in the words under the 11 dots is the letter ayin, with a value of 70, the complete value (standard and ordinal) of all 11 letters under the dots is 422, which is the exact numerical value of the word “seventy (70)” (ShBAYM). These, of course, connect to the destruction of the first Two Holy Temples in –422 BCE and in 70 CE, respectively, as is detailed and chronicled in The Divine Calender.

It’s also not a coincidence that the letter ayin, with a numerical value of 70, has an ordinal value of 16, as in the 16 letters of the 4 species discussed above.

In case it’s not understood, it is our responsibility to mediate on sharing this light with the 70 Nations, and this is why we were blessed to be the channels and given these magnificent divine tools to use. As it says in Isaiah 56:7, ” I will bring them to My holy Mountain and make them rejoice in My House of Prayer…For My House will be called the House of Prayer for all the nations.”

Sukkot is the time of joy, when the energy of rejoicing is drawn down upon us by our actions within the succah for the whole year. Let’s do all we can to spread that rejoicing to the entire world.

Chag Sameach

With Love

“Song of the Well” from which we Draw the Light

…continued from the “Song of the Sea” at Shmot 15:1-21, paragraph 42, where we discussed the connection of the flowing Light to water, the mikve concept, the name Ehyeh and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, all their conjoined connections to H’Moshiach (the Messiah), and also the importance of joyful singing in appreciation of Hashem.

The next song sung in the Bible is also about water. It is the “Song at the Well” found at Bamidbar 21:17-20, and not coincidentally we find that the first well drank from in the Torah is found at Bereshit 21:17-20, when G-d gives Hagar and young Ishmael relief and offers to make him a mighty nation. This cannot be a coincidence, but the difference was Hagar and Ishmael didn’t give thanks. Yet G-d kept his promise and made him a mighty nation, a nation of unquenchable thirst.

And neither can the fact that the word well, Ber (BER) is found 22 times in the Torah, an indication of the flow of light through the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and that all the permutations of Ber, such as in the Torah’s 2nd word, Barah (BRE) add up to 28, the same total number of time2 the word “river” is used in the Torah.

Well and River?

Wells are dug. Rivers flow down from the mountains. The rivers refer to the flow of Light from the upper rivers above, while the wells are the vessels, recipients of this flow, which is why Abraham and the Patriarchs were always digging wells, to prepare our vessels for the Light. This is also why Miriam, a female, was in charge of the well. She was a natural vessel, while Moses was a natural channel, and more like a river in nature.

The first verse of the Torah also has 28 letters, and of the first 9 of those letters, the permuted BER (well) to BER (to create) was included twice, BRESHYT BRE because it takes two drops from below to cause one to flow down from above, which is also why the Moshiach prophecies are based on 666, or 2/3. We have to move 2/3 of the way ourselves and G-d will do the rest.

And that BER (well) and BER (to create) are spiritually related is easily understood if one sees BER (well) as the feminine principal or vessel, which is what creates, gives birth, or manifests. While a river can flow all day long, the water (or Light) must be drawn into a vessel in order to irrigate and nourish and breed life.

Interestingly enough, those 9 letters, including their ordinal value sum to 1215, and as we discussed in our article on the Shakings of the Lulav, all the diverse elements of the Sukkot holiday add up to 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason for 1215, but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed. For example, amongst the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, there are 11 unique letter and they also have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214. Also 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations and the 70 faces of the Torah. And furthermore, 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (ZYRVP H’EVTYVT), which the Torah seems to be telling us to do, as did Abraham, the Patriarch, in his Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation).

This helps explains the water connection, “Pouring of the Water” (nisuch hamayim), during and to the holiday of Sukkot. And during the time of teh Holy Temple, “Pouring of the Water” was accompanied by signing and dancing and much celebration, just as it should be, considering the first songs of the Torah are about water, and the flow of the Light.

That the exact word well (Beer, BER), found 22 times in the Torah, is obviously connected with the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, through which Light flows into our world, but a deep secret revealed in The Genesis Prayer is that the Well of Miriam is located at the very center of 42-Letter Name matrix in the Reish-Zaddi (RZ) pair, at letters #21 and 22 of the 42 letters, at the place also known as the Brit of Mashiach, as discussed in previous blogs. Moreover, the numerical value of the RZ pair is 290, the same as Miriam.  Because of the special properties of the mikve, those concerned about fertility and the conception of righteous children, shold read the special section in The Genesis Prayer regarding the 42-letter Name and this special connection within it.  Many people for many generations including ours have received so-called miracles from it, which we know to be just the tree-of-life reality at work.

…to be continued with the rest of the 10 songs. And we will soon be discussing the “Sword of Michael,” which some say is also the “Sword of Moses,” hidden within the “Song of the Sea.”
