The Two Hands of G-d

The first time the word hand (יד) is written is the Torah is when the progenitor of King David and thus Mashiach is born. The 11th of the 28 times referenced the Hand on G-d’s Throne, then the passage continues saying that G-d will be at war with Amalek for all generations ( מ׳דר‌ דר‌ ), which decodes with gematria to “From 408.”  It is not a coincidence that the Zohar repeatedly speaks of the 408 years of troubles leading up to the time of Moshiach, or that the Torah is exactly 408 component letters shy of a complete 600,000, the log of which is 5.778.

The Zohar tells us that the word hand (יד) is actually the Name Hand(יד), coinciding with the Name David (דוד), also of numerical value 14. The two Hands are always combined within the Tertagrammaton (יהוה), which is mercy, through the two Heisi(הה) that are each composed of the letters Dalet and Yud (יד). “From these Two Hands, the heaven and earth were created, and all that is with them.”


There are 10 primordial or component letters that existed in the world of Tohu, even before the primordial Aleph (א) that is Binah. They are : ן: ך: ר: ס: נ: כ: י:  ז: ו: ד.  Of them, the 1st and 4th spell the Name Hand (יד) of numerical value 14. There are innumerable secrets to these 10 letters and following the guidance of Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, we line them up 5 on one side, 5 on the other and cleave them in half. The initial light revealed by this cleaving in two is that their numerical total, 1557 divided by 2 is 778.5, an allusion to the frame of 5778 years that existed long before time existed.  That initial light also shines from the sum of the 5 letters (: נ: י:  ז: ו: ד), whose sum is 77; and whose sum of their square roots is 10 times the square root of 3 or 10√3; and whose sum of their squares is 2701, the numerical value of the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse.  The sum of the squares of the other 5 component letters is 784,000 or 28² x 1000. That 28² is (1000 – 216) is another indication that the two (2) hands are full of mercy without the judgements, which is gevura (216).

בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.


Two (2) Hands, 5 fingers on each hand, that created Heaven and Earth. It is not for nothing that of all Patriarchal names, only David’s (דוד) is comprised wholly of the primordial 10 letters. More to follow….

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.

Shabbat Shalom


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

Chag Chanukah Sameach


5778 Is Upon Us

The year 5778 is finally upon us and the entire world has been witnessing the changes over the past year with the ominous signs recognizable to all.  For 5778 years the Earth has been circling the Sun at 66,600 miles per hour, or 107,000 kilometers per hour if you use that system.  Most people will recognize 666 as an apocalyptic sign but be that as it may, it is also a deep Kabbalistic concept and the numerical value of 2/3. Rav Ashlag of blessed memory used that principle to determine the year of 5778 as the time of the geula (final redemption), and the Arizal hinted at its use to determine a specific date within the year 5778.  Equally significant is that the sum of the integers from 1 to 107 is also 5778 and that there are 107,000 letters in the Torah preceding the 10 Commandments, which were given in the 70th Chapter in the Torah, but that has already been written.

Since the beginning of consciousness, the biblical birth of Adam, the Earth has been hurtling through space at 66,600 miles per hour, and when it traveled exactly 1,666,666,666,666 miles, King David was born. 35 years later, at the midpoint in David’s 70-year lifespan, in the year 2889 HC, we reached exactly the midpoint to the year 5778.  Let that sink in for a moment, and connect to the journey that began with Adam, paused with David, and brought us to this fateful point in time. The ancient kabbalists told us that ADAM (אדם) stands for Adam-David-Moshiach(א–ד–ם).

After David, the Earth continued its journey and when it traveled a total of 3232323232323.2 miles around the Sun, the United States of America was formed. It was 1776 CE. Then 101010101010.1 miles later, the Earth reached a total of 3333333333333.3 miles and Israel became a nation. The year was 5708(1948 CE). Notably, the Archangel Michael, of gematria 101 is the guardian angel of Israel. This is more significant considering the Biblical and Zoharic prophecies of the 70 nations of the world gathering against Israel in the end-of-days, and the vicious anti-Semitic sentiments orchestrated by the Erev Rav and boiling up all over the world. These prophecies are thousands of years old and are relevant only now as Israel approached 70 years of nationhood.

The Earth continued circling the Sun at 66,600 mph and the planet started to heat up—what we call global warming.  This heating up over the last 70 years brought the average surface temperature of the Earth, to 57.78 degrees, in alignment with that of the surface of the Sun, 5778 K.

The Earth will continue circling the Sun we assume. The question is will we chose to keep riding it, or get off?  Which world will we choose to live in? It is no longer a matter of whether we will choose to go through the gates when they open, but whether they will even open for us. We have been given the tools to make that happen, eyes to see and ears to hear. We will discuss the key tools below and hopefully strengthen your beliefs for without them no tool can help you. After all, our souls have already had 5778 years to decide what they really want.

The Torah scroll is arranged into 42 rows and 248 columns, and all the columns, except for 6 specific ones, begin with the letter Vav (ו) of numerical value 6, as in the 6th millennium when most of the Jewish prophecies called for Moshiach’s arrival.  The number 248 is the numerical value of Abraham(אברהם), whose letters permute to Reah MB (ראה–מב) or “See the 42.” This arrangement of the Torah with its focus on 42, as in 42-Letter Name of G-d, is crucial for us in these final days.

These 6 letters at the heads of their respective columns spell out B’YH Shmo (ביה–שמו) and they have the numerical value 363 along with an ordinal value of 57. Both these values are the exact same as H’Moshiach (המשיח), the Messiah. Neither the Torah, nor G-d’s messages in it are mbiguous.  What matters is if we are ready to receive them. If the other 242 columns seem to point to H’Moshiach it must be noted that they can also represent the 242 years from when the 13 colonies of the United States became a nation in 1776 CE to the year 2018 CE (5778), this year. The complete gematria value of B’YH Shmo is thus 363 plus 57 or 422 when The Divine Calendarthe kolel of 2 is added for the 2 parts of the equation, and as noted in The Divine Calendar, 422 is the numerical value of the word for 70, specifically as in 70 CE when the Second Holy Temple was destroyed.  We make this connection because the year -422 BCE is also when the First Holy Temple was destroyed, in 3338 HC, and because 5778 x .5778 = 3338.  There are no coincidences, only choices. The divine intent is unambiguous. We were given eyes to see; what we choose to look at is our choice, and ours alone. In truth, we judge only ourselves. Our fate is entirely dependent on the choices we make. Hopefully, the revelations herein enclosed will make those choices clearer.

Just before Rosh Chodesh Elul this year, when the final month of teshuva (repentance) began before 5778, the moon equaled the Sun and a 70-mile wide swath of darkness divided the United States in two. Thanks to the pervasive efforts of the Even Rav, the US has become the most divided, divisive place on the planet, split in two, literally and figuratively.  This occurrence, witnessed by millions, fulfills the prophecy based on the Zohar that in the days of Mashiach the moon (malchut) would equal the Sun (Zeir Anpin) and so it has, for a few hours at least, when the entire country, so recently fixated on hatred and anarchy, focused on the darkness and cheered.  That dark band divided the country into North and South for the second time in US history.  More recently, the South has been under siege and not just from those anarchistic forces of evil who are pulling down all symbols of its past, but by powerful elements of nature (Elohim). Three very powerful and unprecedented hurricanes surged forth from the Atlantic, whose initials in Hebrew (חיה) spelled (Chayah), or beast in English.  The gematria of Harvey (הרוי) is that of the Hebrew word “the judgement” and the gematria of Irma (יארמה) is that of “from judgement” while that of Jose (חוזה) is the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).  The letters of Irma and Harvey permute to spell in Hebrew “the ten curses,” while the letters in Jose count down 8…7…6…5. And then there was Maria…

We should pray for G-d’s will to be done mercifully and for mankind to suddenly awaken before it is too late. This window in time will be temporary and we need to take advantage of it while we can.

This year, 5778, we complete 66.6 jubilee years since the giving of the Torah at My Sinai, which was the last opportunity we had for Moshiach consciousness in our world, the last time we touched Binah, a state of immortality and instate understanding. That time, we collectively rejected it. Binah is a spiritual sea where everything is instantaneously connected and these connections are openly understood by all who ride upon it.  The Earth has traveled a great distance in those 3330 years and G-d has expended great efforts on our behalf to align the worlds for us for the 3rd and possibly final time, at least for us.   The Zohar indicates that we needed to reach a critical mass of like and positive consciousness of 600,000 souls.  Alternately because of the two Shins (שש) of numerical value 300 each on the tefillin, we would have needed 100 minyanim with like and positive consciousness praying for Moshiach/ Binah consciousness and the unification of the Shechinah with Hashem. Instead, the majority of the population, including far too many Jews, have unwittingly succumbed to the negative influence of the Erev Rav, just as they did 3330 years ago with the golden calf.  These are the same people working so hard to divide the United States in two and create World War III.  So where does that leave us?

Barring a sudden shift in the common consciousness, we must make our  connections individually, and prepare ourselves to receive the gates . Besides the normal prayers, and besides studying Zohar as much as possible, there are three connections that can bring us closer to the docks of unification and help prepare our sails for the winds of Binah that soon approach. Caution though: nothing can prepare us for what is to come if we choose to ground ourselves in the lower world of malchut. That is the first choice we must make.  We have to want Moshiach and enlightenment over physicality and we have to want it with all our hearts, not as a hedge to our bets.  Before children reach the age of 5 they see many wondrous and scary things that we cannot. It is because they believe. If we do not believe something is not possible it will not be possible. It is as simple as that. If you want to connect to the spiritual realm you must first believe—truly believe—that it exists. Our eyes see what we let them see.  The Kabbalists describe our world as the world of illusion and Satan as the master illusionist.

The three places of intense connection to the spiritual realm, and specifically to Binah, are the Torah’s first verse of gematria 2701; the 42-Letter Name of G-d that stems from that verse, of gematria 3701, and the 1000 letters of the Shema that bridge the 1000 value gap between them, the 1000 chambers of Moshiach.  We have written about the Torah’s first verse and the 42-Letter Name extensively and will add even deeper connections for them soon. Today, it is imperative we bring out a deeper understanding of the Shema for everyone.  In this I am fulfilling a promise to Rav Brandwein of blessed memory to publish this enlightenment for the whole world.  This article is not meant to be a comprehensive analysis or explanation about the Shema prayer, which would fill volumes; it is meant to illuminate numerous highlights of the prayer have been previously concealed from the average student and are only now being revealed because the darkness of our days necessitates it.

So why 1000? Kabbalistically, and as a matter of counting, 1000 represents completion, just as in the complete Tree-of-Life that has 10 sefirot (dimensions) subdivided into 10 sub-sefirot and those in turn into 10 additional sub-sefirot or 10 x 10 x 10. Notably, when we descend these dimensions by 10% each iteration, 1000 units requires 22 diminutions of 10% each to get to 100, as in the 22 Hebrew Letters, or as Abraham described them in the Sefer Yetzirah, the 22 cubic building blocks, and also as in the 22 paths that connect the sefirot in the Tree-of-Life.  Please note the science used by the ancient kabblaists may have been divinely given but it is no less accurate or precise than our modern physics, which also divides our existence into 10 dimensions.

Therefore, there are 66 iterations in total when diminishing the light of 1000 to 100 to 10 to 1. The symmetry aside, those 1000 are as One (1) in that the Hebrew word for 1000 is elef (אלפ), which is exactly the same as alef (אלפ), the first Hebrew letter, of numerical value 1 (one).  In short, the alef (א) is Binah, a primordial existence that preceded the Bet of Bereshit in the Torah.  As a completeness, 1000 is also the end since Ketz (קץ), meaning “the end” of numerical value 1000, and spelled with the initials of North Korea in Hebrew (צפון–קראה).

First, it must be explained that we inhabit a 3-dimensional world and that as the Zohar enlightens, the most basic shape in our world is the cube, which is why the 1000 letters of the Shema form a cube of 10 by 10 by 10, or 103.  When that cube expands to connect with the 50 gates of Binah in the 4th dimension it forms a hypercube, which because of math and physics has 42 faces and 72 vertices and 72 edges.  This is why the 4 paragraphs of the Shema have 50 letters in first 2 verses, 42 words in the first paragraph, 72 words in the second, 50 words in the third, and 72 in the fourth.  This is hard to visualize and we need not be able to do it. We should, though, connect the 42 words and the 72 words to 42-Letter Name and 72 Triplet Names of G-d respectively, and we should use the entire prayer to elevate our consciousness toward Binah. Each Name and letter is a portal or port in the sea of Binah.  It is not a coincidence that Sea, Yam (ים) has the numerical value of 50, just as it is no coincidence that there are 50 years in a jubilee year, which we were told to start counting exactly 3330 years ago. This time we are all captains of our own ships, and if we do not unfurl our sails in time no one will do it for us.

What is described above in 4-dimensions is what our sails look like unfurled. It is invisible to us at the moment, yet we can and should use the Shema in its condensed 4 paragraph form which we can see in order to harness all that spiritual energy and open ourselves up to that spiritual existence beyond.    See with your eyes and hear with your ears.  See the MB (42-Letter Name). Hear the Shema,

The Zohar in Ki Tetze further explains that in the end of days, we will strike, Samuel, the evil minister of the Erev Rav 50 times, corresponding to the ordinal value in the 3 letters of the first word in the shema (שמע) and that we would strike out the wickedness from within us at the limit of 39 times, as in the value and also the ordinal value of the last two words (אחד  יהוה) of that same first verse of the shema. The Zohar relates those 50 strikings (beatings) of Samuel to the 50 letters in that verse combined with the silent Baruch Shem verse that follows it.  When we recite the Shema with the right intentions we can beat away our accumulated negative klippot that block out the light that G-d so wants us to receive.  This is a precious gift given that our world is so thick with negativity. We need to use it, not forsake it.

The same Zohar passage continues explaining that Adam, Eve, the serpent, and the land each received 10 strikes.  This is akin to the four letter Yuds(י) in the four central words of the Shema’s first verse

(יהוה אלהינו  יהוה ישראל ) with each of the 4 (ד) letters Yud(י) having the numerical value of 10. Indeed, like the mezuzot on our doorposts, the Name of protection, Shadai (שדי) is embedded in that verse.


We should keep all this in mind every time we do the Shema, along with the fact that the first and last words of that verse (שמע) and (אחד) together have the numerical value of 424, Moshiach Ben David.  As the Erev Rav does everything in their vast powers to prevent this unification we must unify ourselves by making these selfless connections in the name of bringing Moshiach Ben David into our world, which is why G-d placed these connections with the Shema, the prayer of unification.

G-d hid even more treasures for us within this first verse.  The first four words of the Shema (אלהינו יהוה ישראל שמע) have the complete gematria value of 1215, which we know from Rav Abulafia is that of “70 Nations” and “permutation of the letters.”  It is also the value of the word Tikune (karma) and of Va-etchanan, the key word that indicates how many times Moses beseeched G-d to let him enter the Promised Land and thus end our Tikune and bring about Binah. Normally, Va-etchanan is considered without its sofit value and thus only 515, representative of tefila (prayer) and the 515 hours from Rosh Hashannah to Hoshannah Raba.  Many of the tzaddikim today think this Hoshannah Raba marks the time of the profound shift.  When concentrating on the first four words of the Shema (אלהינו יהוה ישראל שמע) we too are beseeching G-d to help us overcome our tikkune and our global tikkune, using the Hebrew letters to unite us as channels for the 70 nations of the world.  This is also one of the reasons the word Shema שמע is written in the Torah with an enlarged letter Ayin (ע) of numerical value 70. We know from the Zohar that all the enlarged letters in the Torah connect us to Binah, including the enlarged dalet (ד) of echad (אחד) that the Zohar instructs us to elongate its pronunciation significantly as we mediate on the 4 exiles merging into one and ending now with Moshiach Ben David.

G-d always builds redundancy into everything that is important to us because it is known that we are stiff necked and need to see things repeatedly before we realize things are not coincidental. That is why we did not get it the first time and were thrown out of Gan Eden. That is why we did not get it the second time, and rejected G-d’s voice on the eve of the 50th Gate in 2448, after 49 jubilee years. That is why it has taken 66.6 more jubilee years to prepare us.  The milui or spelled out value of the two letters Ayin (ע) and dalet (ד) plus the kolel of 1 for their unification is also 1215.

The Zohar explains that Moses was the Sun and he set into the stillness of the night to let Joshua shine as the Moon. It further explains that in the end of days, Moses, as the Sun, will rise to help redeem us.  With the sign of the eclipse, the Sun regains its rightful place.  Rabbi Shimon tells us that Moses is the Leviathan that swims in the Sea of Binah. The first four words of the Shema also equal the value of Leviathan (לויתן) and the first 4 letters of Leviathan (לויתן) have an ordinal value of 50. During this profound connection, part of our kavanot should be to meditate on linking our consciousness with Moses, the Leviathan that swims in the Sea, represented by the 50 letters of the unified Shema and Baruch Shem, Zeir Anpin with Malchut.

The final two words of the first verse (אחד  יהוה) have the complete gematria of 78, which as Rav Brandwein explained to me many years ago is symbolized in the initials of Etz Chaim (עץ–חיים), the Tree-of-Life, the consciousness of which we have the ability to achieve this year, in 5778, when the Gates will open for us for the first time in 3330 years. Those two words (אחד  יהוה) Meaning G-d is One echo throughout the next 4 paragraphs.  The Zohar explains that the letter Vav (ו) of numerical value 6 represents Zeir Anpin and the expansion of space in 6 directions, which is why there are 6 letters in each line of the 42-Letter Name matrix.  In the 50 letters of the first verse and Baruch Shem of the Shema there is only 1 word beginning with the letter Vav (ו), V’ed (ועד). There are 13 words beginning with Vav (ו) out of the 42 words of the Shema’s first paragraph, and there are 42 words beginning with Vav (ו) in the Shema’s remaining 3 paragraphs.  Within the limitless technology built into the cubic Shema matrix, we have been given a formula of 1 – 13 – 42 to help unify us with G-d. Echad (אחד), One – Ahava (אהבה), love and Echad, One (אחד), each being of numerical value 13 – and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the understanding of which Rav Brandwein explained would bring about the Geula (final redemption).

1 – 13 – 42

There are 599,592 or (600,000408) component letters in the Torah and the first word of the Shema’s four paragraphs, V’ahavta (ואהבת)meaning “and you shall love” has the numerical value of 408 with the prefix (ו). Moreover, 408 times 6, the numerical value of the letter Vav (ו) is 2448, the year the Torah was given to Moses, 3330 years ago, the last time the Tree-of-life reality was available to us. The message is clear: Love is the missing link; love and a desire for oneness with the Creator is what will overcome the hatred being spread by the Erev Rav and their ministering serpent throughout the world; love is what will unite us and connect us to Binah.  The four words that head up each of the 4 paragraphs, without their letter vav(ו) prefixes add up to 2019, the time when the window closes, and the upper and lower worlds will have separated once again. Being the beginning of the era of Binah, it is a time beyond the Zeir Anpin (ו).  Including the first verse, the 5 initial words of the 5 paragraphs the kolel add up to 2448, as in the year 2448, which was the last time that unity existed, albeit briefly.

The year 2448 was the time that 600,000 Jewish souls stood as One before G-d. Is it odd then, unbelievable perhaps, that the Log of 600,000 is 5.778Or that One over those 600,000 souls divided by the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt, divided by the 12 tribes, divided by the 3 Patriarchs equals exactly 42.  This equation was given to us by the Arizal and shows us why the 42-Letter Name, also known as the Ana B’koach, is embedded into the Torah’s first verse: its power to unify us.

1/(600,000/70/12/3) = 42


In VaEtchanan, just prior to the giving of the 10 Commandments and the verses of Shema Ysrael…, in Devarim 4:40 Moses states, “…Then you will endure a long time in the land that God your Lord is giving you for all time(כל–הימים) ,” and in the words “All time,” literally “all the days” we have kol(כל) with the numerical value of 50 and H’yamim (הימים) with the value of 666 including the kolel, which reveals to us once again the equation 50 x 66.6 = 3330 years.  Moses begins the verse with, “I am presenting to you today, so that He will be good to you and your children after you. Then you will endure for a long time in the land that God…” This phrase within the verse has the numerical value 5777, and is only one of 13 phrases in the Torah with that value.  As we know, the number 13 is the value of ahava (love) and Echad (one) and what we desperately need to cling to in these days.  It has been hinted at in so many ways how to count the days, all of them, and the years until Moshiach.

It is not just any love we need to embrace; it is unconditional love. The first paragraph of the Shema, the one with 42 words, begins with the letter Vav(ו) and ends with the letter Caf(כ), as do all 5 verses in this paragraph, as do the first 21 words in the paragraph and the second 21 words in the paragraph, as does the final word and 3 other words. The letter combination Vav-Caf(וך) is easily recognizable as that of 26 and the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), though arranged with the Caf(כ) in the sofit (final) position, its more appropriate value would be 506, which is not only the value of the first line of the 42-Letter Name matrix, but it is also the value of the words for unconditional love (Love for no reason) and it is the complete gematria value for Moshiach Ben David. And as mentioned in The Genesis Prayer, the 14 triplets in the 42-Letter Name are found exactly 506 times in the Torah. With the addition of one word that begins with Vav-Caf (וכ) there are 13 instances of this connection to unconditional love and Moshiach Ben David in the paragraph of 42. Do we really need any more redundancy? Can the message and equation 1 – 13 – 42 be any clearer? When the signs and the times get darker and people ask where is G-d, we must ask ourselves could He have tried to help us anymore, given us any simpler tools to connect with what is truly important: Love – Moshiach – Unity? If we are going to say the Shema twice a day, at least we should say it with the right intentions. If we are going to say the Ana B’koach within our prayers, at least let it elevate them properly. If you want an arrow to hit its target you must aim it—there is no other way. For 3330 years most of us have been releasing our arrows in empty fields.

To help us bring the unifying power of the Shema into our souls and the healing power of the Shema into our bodies we were given the 23 verses of the Shema, whose initials total 432, as in the 432 Hz frequency of Binah, which is the sum of two basic cubes of 63, which is simply the 2-dimensional or straight line Vav(ו) cubed, but we have covered that in previously articles. Moreover, it cannot be coincidental that the Earth circles the Sun at 66,600 mph and the cube of 6 x 6 x 6, which according to the Ramchal is equivalent to 1 Biblical cubit cubed, is the basic unit of space in our world. Nor is it coincidental that there are 216 or 6 x 6 x 6 letters in the 72 Names of G-d, which are derived from the 3 verses where the Red Sea parted. To stretch that thought, the two hurricanes that made landfall so devastatingly were both connected numerically to Gevurah (Judgement) through 216.  While 6x6x6 is 216, the equation 6+6+6 is 18, and when we raise Phi, the primordial constant that controls the spiraling growth in our universe to the power of 18, we get phi18 equals 5778.000

You may ask why it is important to tune into this exact frequency of 216 x 2 or more specifically, 432 Hz; after all, your cell phone works whether you understand the technology or not. The questions really are whether you want 1 bar or 4, 3G or 4G, static and dropped calls, or a clear channel to the upper world.

Like the 23 words in the Blessing of the Cohenim, these 23 verses align with the 23 chromosome pairs in our DNA in the same way that the 206 words of the Shema that are not in the first paragraph of 42, align with the 206 bones in our bodies. Another way we can tune into the 432 Hz frequency of Binah is when we recite blessings. We start most blessings with the word Baruch (blessed), whose sofit value is 708, as in the value of 42-Letters in the fully iterated Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d, the station hub above for clearing all the prayers and messages.  As the Arizal explains, no prayers get processed with the 42-Letter Names.  It is not coincidental the Israel became a nation in 5708. We follow Baruch with Atah Adonai (אתה–יהוה) whose numerical is 432.  Thus, with each blessing (ברוך‐אתה–יהוה) that we say, or that we say Amen to, we can connect directly and clearly to the spiritual Sea of Binah.

And speaking of Israel, the 6 words of the Shema’s first verse in normal gematria sum to 577 plus 541, the numerical value of the 2nd word in the verse, Israel, while the initials of all 6 letters with the kolel equal 333, as in the 3330 years to 5778, when Israel becomes 70 (ע) and the 4th (ד) exile ends. The final letters add up to 120, as in the lifespan of Moses, the redeemer. Once decoded by simple gematria, it is quite a story this verse is telling us, yet it means nothing if we do not listen to the message, which is why the verse states “Shema Ysrael (Hear O Israel…).” Many of us say the Shema two, three times a day, yet are we listening?

As the Earth circles the Sun at 66,600 for the last year in this era, we conclude the Shema prayer with its final word, “your G-d (אלהיכם)” of numerical value 666, and what do the four final letters of the four final words of the Shema sum to: 1215.  Eleichem (אלהיכם) has a complete gematria of 729, which is quite fitting for the last 6 letters of the 10 x 10 x 10 cube we call the Shema since 729 is 9³ or a cube of 9 x 9 x 9. The number 729 is also the value of the 2nd line of the 42-Letter Name(קרעשטן), which spells kara Satan or “tear out Satan,” the evil within us and amongst us, not a bad idea if we want to connect with Binah consciousness this year.

The Zohar describes the expansion of space from zero(0) dimensions to One (1) dimension, represented by the (vowel) point and by the Yud (י), and then the second dimension is the line, or Vav(ו). In the 3rd dimension the Vav(ו) expands to 6³ or 216 and the Yud (י) expands to 10³ or 1000. Together they add up to 1216, which is 1215 including the kolel of 1.  If we were to add + 10³ + 9³ plus 3 for the 3 components we would get 1948, as in the year Abraham was born (1948 HC) and as in the year Israel became a nation, 1948 CE (5708).  There is a definite structure to our universe, including our physical universe. Our space is ordered and defined and so is our time.

Rosh HaShannah is upon on, and the Arizal teaches us that this second line of the 42-Letter Name(קרעשטן) is the crucial element in the kavanot of the Shofar blowings.  Jews and like-minded souls of all degrees of faith and denominations will be praying at the same time.  Let us use our new knowledge to synchronize our prayers in unity for the coming of Moshiach and the ability to shift our consciousness from our physical world and desires to that of Binah, the World to Come.
