Dan Brown is a terrific writer and excellent researcher. Here are a few facts and Kabbalistic meanings to some of the facts he dug up for his bestseller The Lost Symbol. We’ve previously drawn numerous connections between the timing of the founding of America, the State of Israel and the divine calendar as highlighted by the tzaddikim. So it’s quite interesting that the US Capital Building (the home of Congress) has 541 rooms, since 541 is the well-established standard numerical value for the name Israel.
Nevertheless, the monument at the core of Washington D.C. and Dan’s book is the Washington Monument, which Dan correctly points out is 555 feet tall and has a capstone of 3300 lbs. Now anyone who knows anything about Hebrew knows that the monument resembles a giant letter (V) of numerical value 6. And the reason this is significant is that 555 x 6 = 3330 and that there are exactly 3330 years from the giving of the Torah at Mt Sinai and the second opportunity for the Tree-of-life reality in 2448 HC and the year 5778 HC (2018 CE), the year given by Rav Ahlag and the tzaddikim for the geula (final redemption) and the third reception window for the Tree-of-Life reality.
Moreover, since the letter vav is spelled out VV, it has a numerical value of 12 as in the 12 inches to a foot, which makes the Washington Monument 6660 inches tall, and this is significant only because there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years (50-year Biblical cycle) from 2448 HC to 5778 HC (2018 CE).
Furthermore, in 2018 CE we will be in the 115th US Congress, and we’ll also be in the 115th Jubilee year, counting as the sages do from Adam to 5778 HC.
Now, had Washington D.C. and its buildings and monuments not have been designed by the Masons this might all be a great coincidence, but it would be very surprising that architects familiar with ancient gematria and the writings of the tzaddikim would not have incorporated this knowledge in their monumental works. Especially so, considering that the tiny aluminum capstone that rests at the apex of the Washington Monument weighs exactly 100 oz with 100 being the numerical value for Keter, the crowning sefira (dimension) at the apex of the Tree-of-Life. This in itself would mean nothing if the architect didn’t also know that 100 oz was 6.25 lbs and that 625 is the numerical value of “H’Keter (the Crown)” high atop the 555 ft tall monument. Or that 100 is the numerical value of the letter Caf (CP), the first and representative letter of Keter (CTR), and that CP can also be pronounced Cap, as in Capstone.
Furthermore, gematria and Kabbalah scholars know that the letter Caf (C) has a numerical value of 20 and the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim) has a numerical value of 620, the same as that of Keter.
No one can say for sure that the Washington Monument was designed as a giant letter Vav or as the central column of the Tree-of-Life, but it does make a heck of a sundial and it is indisputable that the surface temperature of the sun is 5778 K, and that the final measure of the complete Washington Monument stretches figuratively from 625 to 555, for a span of 70, which is oddly analogous to the 70 years that span the statehood of Israel in the year 5708 (1948 CE) to 5778 (2018 CE).
Who knows who knew what, but there are only 8 years left until 2018.
