The year Israel became a nation,

**1948**CE, has much significance as detailed in*The Divine Calender*but when we add the numerical value for Israel,**541**to**1948**, we get**1948 + 541 = 2489**, which is**2480**+**9.**The Names of the Five Books of Moses (*Bereshit, Shmot, Vayikra, B’midbar, and Devarim*) add up to**2480**, which in itself is**10 x 248**, the numerical value of Abraham, which is interesting because Abraham was born in**1948**HC and 541 years later, was**2489**HC, the year after Moses died in**2488**.As spelled out in

*The Genesis Prayer*,**9**is a very significant number, not just because it represents*Chochma*, the**9**th Sefira, etc, but because when we divide the number**9**by small gematria version of the**42**letter name, we get**9/.123049027395… = 73.1415777**or extremely accurately,**70 + Pi**and since**73**is the value for*Chochma*, and there are**70**nations in the world according to the Zohar, etc and**Pi**is integrally connected with the Torah’s first verse it’s very fitting.Now while

**5777**-5778 is the year prophesied for the arrival of*Mashiach*, the final letters of each of the 7 lines of the**42-**Letter Name add up to**2480**.
