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

**, it has a numerical value of**

*VV***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

**115**US Congress, and we’ll also be in the

^{th}**115**Jubilee year, counting as the sages do from Adam to

^{th}**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 (*), the first and representative letter of

**CP***Keter (*, and that

**C**TR)**can also be pronounced**

*CP***Cap**, as in

**Cap**stone.

Furthermore, gematria and Kabbalah scholars know that the letter

*Caf (*has a numerical value of

**C**)**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**.

There’s more to the Washington Monument than we first revealed, but more important is what it connects us to as a metaphor: the central axis of the Tree-of-Life; the

**42**-Letter Sword of Moses; the

**10**Commandments; and even Joseph’s Pyramid and the Future Holy Temple. It’s not as odd as it sounds and we’ll explain all these concepts and we promise we’ll then segue into them in subsequent articles with much fuller explanations.

Since the Monument was built to resemble a giant Egyptian obelisk dedicated to the sun, let’s start with the word Cap, as in capstone, which is spelled

**As per the Arizal, the letters**

*(C-P).***are two of the revolving 7-letter sequence that connects to the energy of and spiritually controls the influence of the 7 planets**

*CP*

*CP**RTBGD*; they are the first two when it comes to controlling the Sun, whose surface temperature as we’ve previously noted is

**5778 K**.

Here is a secret about the letter

*Caf (*. While its numerical value sofit is

**CP**)**820**, the same as the all-important phrase at Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love thy neighbor as thyself,”

*Caf (*ordinal value is

**CP**)’s**28**, making its’ complete value

**(820+28) = 848,**or

**2 x 424,**the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Nevertheless, besides representing

*Keter(*, the crowning

**C**TR)*sefira*and besides also representing the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch in his Book the

*Sefer Yetzira*,” , the letter

*Caf (*when spelled out (CP) also spells out the word for palm, as in the palm of our hands.

**C**)Thus our

**2**palms obviously connect with the two

**424**’s, but they also connect with our

**10**fingers,

**5**on one side,

**5**on the other, like the

**10**sefirot,

**10**Commandments on the

**2**tablets, and like Abraham’s description, “

**5**on one side,

**5**on the other, cleaved down the middle.” And the reason this is so significant will become clear once we examine why the

**4**bases of the Washington Monument all had to be

**55’**long.

Meanwhile, the Zohar supports this revelation in that in portion Ekev it states emphatically that the palms connect to the 14 joints of the fingers and that there are

**28**joints in both hands, which is the numerical value of

*Koach*, power.

Like the weight of the aluminum capstone at the tip of the Washington Monument (

**6.25 lbs**) the ratio of its capstone (pyramidian) height to its base is also

**34.45/55.125 ft = .625**, reinforcing the image of the capstone pyramid as “

*H’Keter*(the Crown)” of numerical value

**625**. It also connects it the Torah, whose square root of its total number of words, verses, and letters is exactly

**625**.

Just in case you think the Masons accidentally hit upon this ratio, please note that the ratio of the bases of the entire Monument to that of the capstone are also

**34.45/55.125 ft = .625**,

Another very significant and telling ratio chosen by the Monument’s architects is given by the Monument’s height to its base is

**555/55.5 ft = 10**for a ratio of

**10 to 1,**or inversely

**1**ft of width for every

**10**of height, a very steep angle indeed. More significant than its angle of inclination is its similarity of structure to another

*Keter*that involves

**10**: The

**10**Commandments.

The

**10**Commandments (Utterances) found in the

**13**verses of chapter

**20**(the numerical value of the Hebrew letter

*C**af*) of Exodus consist of exactly

**620**letters, the numerical value of the word

*Keter*and of the Hebrew word for

**20**(

*Esrim*), an obvious allusion to the point the Israelites had reached as they were being offered the Tree-of-Life reality. Nevertheless, the similarity in structure is delineated by the

**62**letter

*Y**uds*(of numerical value

**10**each)—the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (

*Y**HVH*)—for a total of

**620**(

*Keter*once again), meaning that

**1 in 10**of every letter in the

**10**Commandments is the letter

*Yud(*of numerical value

**Y**)**10**.

Like the

**2**palms and the

**2**sets of Tablets given to Moses, there are

**2**recitals of the

**10**Commandments in the Torah, for a total of

**20**, one in Exodus and the other in Deuteronomy. While the first has

**620**letters, the second has

**708**letters, with

**708**being the numerical value of the Upper

**42**-Letter Name (the

**42**letters of the 3 iterations of the spelled out Tetragrammaton (

*YHVH*). We only bring up the

**42**Letters because there are

**42**Letters in the names of the 11 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life, the central column of which the Washington Monument may be a metaphor.

And between the

**2**recitals there are

**130**

*Yuds(Y)*with

**130**being the numerical value for Sinai and for (

*Sulam*) ladder. And while some say that

**708**relates to 5

**7**7

**8**and 5

**708**, the year Israel received statehood (

**70**years before

**5778**as prophesied in the Zohar 2000 years ago, there is a less subtle connection between

**5778**and the

**10**Commandments. The first set, found at Exodus

**20:2**is located exactly at the

**107007**letter in the Torah or the

^{th}**107000**letter from the word

^{th}*Bereshit*(“In the Beginning”), and

**5778**is the exact sum of all the positive integers from 1 to

**107**. This obviously can’t be coincidental, and as divine confirmation the first

**2**words of these

**10**Commandments “

**(I am G-d)” have the exact numerical value**

*Anochi YHVH***107**, and they contain the first

**2**

*Yuds(*of the

**Y)****62**, back-to-back right in their middle (

*ENC*). Moreover, these

**Y Y**HVH**2**words (

*I am G-d*) have an ordinal value of

**62**.

And by the way, the last word in the

**10**Commandments has the newly revealed gematria

*sofit sofit*value of

**820,**the same as

*C**af (*and of the singular Torah verse of unconditional love, as mentioned above.

**CG)**Thus the Monument can also be seen as a giant letter

*Vav(*, which in Hebrew is a vertical line, capped by the Hebrew letter

**V**)*Caf (*and as any Kabbalist knows

**C**)**of numerical value**

*CV***26**represents The Tetragrammaton

*(YHVH),*the ineffable Name of G-d associated with the

**6**sefirot (dimensions) bundled together and called Zeir Anpin, metaphorically the vertical pipeline from our world into the upper spiritual (Heavenly) one.

And speaking of metaphors, while the Washington Monument is found at the edge of the reflecting pool at NW

**15**street, the

^{th}**42**-letters Sword of Moses is found right after the crossing of the Red Sea (

*Yam Suf*or End Sea) at paragraph

**42**of the Book of

*Shmot*, Exodus

**15:11**. Appropriately enough, the sword is tipped with the word and letter

*Alef*, which is shaped like a

**X**comprised of

**4**component letter,

**2**of which are the letter

**. If you look upon the monument as a**

*Yud(Y*)**4**-sided sword, you’ll see the

**X**formed by the

**4**angles at the top.

There is one more monumental connection to make, of which there is no doubt the Masons were aware, for, you see, the entrance to the Great Pyramid (referred to as Joseph’s pyramid in the series of articles we began late last year and hope to continue with soon as a prelude to The Future Holy Temple) is

**55**ft off the ground, and that pyramid too had a special capstone high atop of it. Furthermore, the ratio of the height of the Washington Monument to the Great Pyramid is precisely

**15/13**or

**1.1538**as in the

**115**jubilee years from Adam to the year prophesied for the 3

^{rd}opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality,

**5778**.

And if you don’t think the architects of the Monument had some inkling as to what they were connecting to, please note that the perimeter of the capstone is

**137**ft and

**137**is the well-known numerical value of Kabbalah. Moreover, Moreover, the Base of the Great Pyramid is

**13.7**times that of the Washington Monument, a giant Egyptian Obelisk. Furthermore, the resultant diagonals of the capstone are

**77.85**(NE-SW) and

**78**(NW-SE).

Moreover, the dimension

**55 ft**(

**5**on one side,

**5**on the other, cleaved down the middle) hides the secret of the ancient cubit needed for the building of the Future Holy Temple, and

**555**of those cubits equals

**1271**, the year the Zohar mysteriously reappeared in Spain.

And the Future Holy Temple will be

**100**of

*Caf*(

**) cubits high, once again connecting with**

*CP**Keter*and that Capstone.

Nevertheless,

**555 ft = 242.18**cubits, and since the year

**5778**HC is also the year

**2018 CE**, this year of prophesy is exactly

**242**years after the founding of the United States of America in

**1776**.

Food for thought.

In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring in depth the various avenues brought about from the various metaphors and connections laid out above.

I don’t know if the Masonic architects of the Washington Monument were aware of what we’re about to reveal, but it was indeed part of its divine intent. It’s important that we understand this knowledge as a prelude to our passing beneath the hidden embossed Tetragrammaton (

*YHVH*) at the secret entrance to Joseph’s Pyramid

**55**ft off the ground.

As discussed in our prior articles, each of the

**4**bases of the Monument is

**55**feet wide and the height of the capstone is also

**55**feet, so if we multiple

**55**times

**5**, for the

**5**dimensions of

**55**feet each, we get

**55 x 5 = 275**, as in the well concealed

**27.5”**measurement of the secret ancient cubit that is the be utilized in the construction of the Future Holy Temple. And what makes us think that this was the architect’s hidden intent? Because the entire height of the monument,

**555**feet, is an allusion to that equation (

**5×55**).

There is a physics principle upon which the Torah (

**5**Books of Moses) is designed, and that is that energy is never lost, which means that in counting the

*sefirot*from

**1 to 10**, we get

**1+2+3+4…10**, which sums to a total energy level of

**55**. So, once again , we have a possible monumental connection to the

**10**

*sefirot*of the Tree-of-life, and speaking of Moses, the numerical value of his name (

*MShH*) is

**345**as in the base of the monument’s capstone,

**34.5**ft.

Nevertheless, the entire perimeter of the capstone is

**137**ft, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive,” and the perimeter of the entire monument is

**220**ft. Together,

**220 + 137 + 1 ft**for the extra inches we rounded off in numbers above, equals

**358 ft**, as in the numerical value of Moshiach, the Messiah.

Whether you want to believe there is a purposeful connection here to the energy of the Tree-of-life that will bring about Mashiach, you should note the follow figures regarding the Tetragrammaton (

*YHVH*). The

*YHVH*has

**4**letters, but when we spell them out, they expand to

**10**letters and when we spell out the full

**4**aspects (spelling variations associated with the

**4**aspects of G-d) we get a total of

**55**letters for these first two iterations of G-d’s ineffable Name), as in the four

**55 ft**bases of the monument. Then when we add the 3

^{rd}iteration (or spelling out of the letters in the 2

^{nd}iteration of G-d’s Name), we get a total of

**220**letters, as in the perimeter, or total for the

**4**bases, of the monument,

**220 ft**. Now, note further that

**1 +2 +3 +4 = 10**, and it all starts to come together.

There doesn’t seem to be any coincidence in this design, nor in the fact that there are

**42**letters in each of the 3 iterations of the 3 highest of G-d’s Names (

*YHVH – Av*,

*Sag,*and

*Mah*) and also

**42**letters in the Names of all the

*sefirot*(dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life.

Now, interestingly enough, the numerical value of “Washington” is

**430,**as in the

**430**years of exile in Canaan and Egypt from the Covenant of Abraham in

**2018 HC**to the Exodus in

**2448 HC**, and of those

**430**years,

**220**were in Canaan and

**210**in Egypt. The height of Joseph’s pyramid is

**210**cubits and also

**210**levels, while the perimeter of the Washington Monument is

**220**ft. So we ask you, is this a great segue to the Pyramid, or what? Especially as we edge closer to the date prophesied for the completion of G-d’s Covenant with Abraham,

**2018 CE**.
