As discussed in Part I of the Tabernacle, we know from the ** Zohar, The Book of Splendor,** that the construction of the Tabernacle,

*Mishka*n, is connected to the act of Creation in the first verse of the Torah (Bible).

So let’s examine all that money (metal) collected to built the Tabernacle, *Mishka*n and see what shakes out.

**…….Talents…Shekels**

Gold ….29………**730**

Silver 100…….**1775**

Bronze **70** ……2400

……….199……**4905**

Now, it’s relatively easy to see that the **1775** shekels represent and are connected to the** 27** letters of the Hebrew alphabet which have a total gematria value of **1775**.

Moreover, the **70** talents of Bronze is most probably connected to the** 70** Nations, the **70** years, etc, and also the **70** faces of the Torah. And even more so, since the square root of the **4905** shekels is **70**.0**3571 **and **3571 **is exactly **( 5778/Phi), **or precisely

**.**

**Phi**^{17}Now, let’s leave the **1775** Silver Shekels out of it for a second, since they were for a special counting, and we have** 29+100+70+730+2400 = 3329**. And since the Torah makes a special point of telling us that the *Mishkan* was built in the **2**nd year of the Exodus, (in **2449**), we get **2449 + 3329 = 5778 (2018 CE)**, the year prophesied by **Rav Ashlag **and the *tzaddikim* for the geula, the final redemption and the advent of the Tree-of-life reality.

And since a talent = **3000** shekels, we see that there is an extra mixed talent of metal currency that can be separated from the shekels, leaving us with **(4905 – 3000) = 1905,** and giving us a total of **200** talents and **1905** shekels in all that was contributed to the building of the Tabernacle.

And since we’re looking at the Torah’s first verse, it’s interesting that the **27**th letter is *Resh ( R)*, of numerical value

**200**, same as the

**200**talents.

Genesis 1:1 *BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HE RZ*

*And if we were to add the ***28**th letter, *Tzadi (Tz)* of numerical value **90, **to **4905**, we’d get **90 + 4905 = 4995**, which is the *gematria sofit* value of all **27** letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.

Genesis 1:1 *BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HER Z*

Obviously, the contributions of the Tabernacle are all about the letters (or the light/energy in them).

Is this reaching? You decide, since the total value of the verse is **2701**, which is equivalent to the sum of all the positive integers through **73**, as in the **73**0 shekels of gold used to built the Tabernacle, and since the square root of **730 **is **27.01**….

What this also means is that the Torah’s first verse is based on a triangular number, the **73**rd triangular number. And we know this isn’t a coincidence because not only is the sum of the first **8** words (**33** letters) of the Torah also a triangular number (**3**00**3**), the **77**th in fact, but the **7 **words of the Torah’s first verse are comprised of **28 **letters and **28** is the **7**th triangular number. (For more on this and for a better understanding of the Torah and G-d’s design, see** **** The Genesis Prayer**)

So knowing this, if we see which letters correspond to triangular numbers within this first verse, we get:

Genesis 1:1 **B**R**E**ShY**T** BRE **E**LHYM **E**T HShMY**M** VET HER**Z**

First of all, the numerical value of the **7** letters * (BETEEMZ)* add up to

**535**and with an adjustment for the

*kolel*of the letters and the equation, we get us

**541**, the numerical value of Israel.

**Let Val x Tri# = Sofit Val**

**B 2 1 = 2 2
E 1 3 = 3 1
T 400 6 = 2400 400
E 1 10 = 10 1
E 1 15 = 15 1
M 40 21 = 840 600
Z 90 28 = 2520 900**

7 535 84 = 5790 1905

7 535 84 = 5790 1905

These** 7** letters correspond to the **7** triangular numbers: **1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21**, and **28, **which collectively add up to** 84**, or **3 **times **28**, representative of the **3 **metallic elements of the tabernacle and the** 3** columns of the Tree-of-life, and **84** is the value of *Pad* (redemption), the union of the upper and lower **42** Letter names.

Moreover, the sum of the ordinal value sofit of these **7** letters is** 78, **or** 3 x 26**, it is representative of the initials of the Tree-of-life, *ayin* (**70**) and *chet*(**8**), representative of the year **5778**, as pointed out by Rav Brandwein. And the *gematria sofit* sum of the **7 **letters is **1905** yet again, bringing us back to the Tabernacle counting.

We discussed in numerous previous articles the connection between the brain’s natural rhythm/frequency (timing mechanism) of **54** beats per minute and its relationship to **5778** which is **54 x 107 = 5778** with the **107** triangular number being **5778**, but we’ve recently learned that **54** is also the complete cycle of the **27** letters with its returning light of **27** letters.

And as stated above, the standard gematria sum of the **7** triangular letters in the Torah’s first verse is **535**, which when multiplied with **54 x 2** or **27 x 4 = 5778**0, two complete cycles.

And this becomes all the more interesting because when we multiple the **7** triangular numbers by their respective letters and sum them all up they equal 5790, which is 12 more that **5778** and when we adjust for the *kolel* in the exact same way as above, we get **5778** yet again.

And given all these connections to **5778 (2018 ce)** is it inconceivable that the complete *sofit* value of these **7** special letters within the **28** is **2018** utilizing the kolel of **7** and **28** letters: **1905 + 78 + 28 + 7 = 2018.**

Or that the gematria of the 2 words of the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse not utilized in the special letter sequence above is **616**, which is that of “The Torah (** H’TVRH**).

And you might say skeptically that **2018** could point instead to G-d’s Covenant with Abraham which occurred in **2018 HC**, but we know form the sages that the final letters in verse of phrase point toward the future and the final letters in the initial **7** word phrase in Pekudei (“These are the accounts of the tabernacle which were calculated”) add up to exactly **2019**: “EL**H** PKVD**Y** HMShC**N** MShC**N** HAD**T** ESh**R**,” which may explain why the Torah chose to double the word Mishkan. And without the **sofit**, the gematria of the first** 6** words less the *kolel *for the **24** letters in them adds up **2017**.

I wonder if the Torah is trying to tell us something?

Oddly, the initials of these **7 **words add up to **212**, that of “The Light,” and they spell out H’Pe M’H’Pe, “The letter Pe from the letter Pe.” Just something to think about, considering the** 4805** letter Pes in the Torah and their connection to the Mishkan.

**So why** **1905**?

At the age of **26**, Albert Einstein experienced his year of miracles (annus mirablis), in which he published **4** earth-shattering papers on the physics of the universe that changed the course of history and laid the foundations of quantum physics, introducing the special theory of relativity, explaining Brownian motion and proving the existence of atoms. And it was on 9/**27**/**1905** on the **27**th day of Elul that Einstein revealed the world’s most famous equation: **E = Mc ^{2}**

**Energy = Mass X the speed of Light (c) squared**

The Torah, Tabernacle, Creation, the **27 **Letters, triangular numbers, **Phi**, the brain’s frequency (**54 B/Min**), the surface temperature of the Sun (**5778** K) and a dream that revealed quantum physics. And what runs through them all: The Light of G-d.

All that said, let’s look at those 199 talents and the **4905** shekels a little differently because of the 30**4805** letters in the Torah, **4805** of them are the letter *Pe*, and those 4905 shekels represent **4805** plus **100**, synonymous with *keter (the crowning sefira/dimension)* and the numerical value of the spelled-out letter *Caf ( CP)*. Thus

**4805**and

**100**equals the 2 letters in

*Caf (*

**CP**).Moreover, **100** is the numerical value of the letter* Koof( K) *and since the value

**4805**represents the letter

*Pe*, together they form the first two letters in Pekudei (

**PK**VDY, counting), the name of this portion, 23rd of the

**54**portions in the Torah. The other 3 letters in Pekudei (PK(

**VDY**) permute to the spell-out letter

*Yud (*, and the total value of the word Pekudei is

**YVD**)**200**, as in the

**200**talents.

It’s not surprising that the* Mishkan* would connect to *Keter*; nevertheless, there’s more to this. First we must understand the dynamic construction of the Tree-of-life as revealed by the Arizal in his explanation that the 100 talents of silver collected correspond to *Keter*, and that they were used to create the ground supports of the Tabernacle’s columns, which are *malchut*. The metaphor is easy to understand, as the *sefirot* are arranged as a tree (column) and what receives and holds up the tree from the base, is the *sefira *of *malchut*.

For those that understand, this is deep wisdom: *Keter* is One, *Echad*, as in God is “One.” It’s inseparable. From *Keter* the light expands level by level through the 10 *sefirot* (dimensions) spreading out without diminishing in its entirety. And from each one of these levels the light further divides by 10 sub-levels, and then again. First 1 then 10 then 100 then 1000, each one considered *keter *because they represent the complete light and not an aspect of it. Yet 1 remains* keter* of *keter* of* keter*, and 100 represents the light stretching from that point all the way through the 10th level of *malchut (malchut *of* malchut) *and similarly with 1000.

We’ll get back to this important dynamic structure in a moment, but let’s view that 100 shekels as 1 talent, or *keter* spread out through *malchut* of *malchut*, and thus 1 = 100 = the light of *Keter *fully disseminated through 100 sub-levels.

Thus is we transfer **100 **shekels to the talents we have** 200** talents and** 4805** shekels, and following that logic, the **200** talents would equal 20,000 shekels, making the total **2480**5. It just so happens that the** 5** Names of the **5** Books of Moses equal **2480** collectively.

And moreover, since** 200** is the value of the letter * Resh *(

*), those*

**R****200**talents and

**4805**shekels together represent the combination

*, of value*

**R**esh-**P**e**280**, the numerical value of the

**5**final letters, that complete the

**27**letters, which added up to

**1775**shekels, so the allusion is not without merit. And as the Zohar explains, the 5 final letters connect us with the time of the

*geula*, final redemption.

The Hebrew word for “talents” is spelled * CCT*, beginning with

*and ending with*

**C**af

*thus stretching from*

**T**af,*Keter*(

*CTR*) to the final letter

*, thus*

**T**af*malchut*.

**Arizal’s**schematic, each level has a digital value in our base 10, 10-dimensional world:

**Keter – 1**

**Chochmah -2**

**Binah (Da’at) – 3**

**Chesed – 4**

**Gevurah – 5**

**Tiferet – 6**

**Netzach -7**

**Hod – 8**

**Yesod -9**

**Malchut – 0**

**Keter – 1 -10 -100 – 1000**

**Chochmah -20 -200**

**Binah (Da’at) – 30-300**

**Chesed – 40-400**

**Gevurah – 50-500**

**Tiferet – 60-600**

**Netzach -70-700**

**Hod – 80-800**

**Yesod -90-900**

**Malchut – 0**

*Malchut*, meaning kingdom, has a digital value of zero because it is an endpoint more than a dimension; it reflects light rather than shining with its own.

*Malchut*is a world created totally of illusion however real it feels to us.

*Malchut*can be visualized as a screen on which the light of the other worlds (dimensions) are projected.

*malchut of malchut of malchut*, it has shone throughout the entire Tree-of-life and is considered complete, and thus called

*keter*and is fully 1000. From the aspect of the vessel (Malchut) it is zero, but from

*Keter*it is 1000.

*keter of chochma*for example the light level is

**20**, while at

*tiferet*of chochma it is

**26**. Thus each number has a place (space) within the Tree-of-life.

*MShH*) is

**345**, so Moses’ place within the sefira would be Gevurah of Chesed of Da’at.

**10 Commandment**series shortly with the explanations of how the 10 Commandments have laid out the final years to

**5778 (2018)**and how the devastation in Japan and the tragic events of the past 10 years have fit snugly into it. B’H we awaken soon. Our prayers go out to the Japanese.
