    It is no accident that in the story of Noah, the rain poured for 40 days, and submerged the world in water. Just as a person leaves a mikveh pure, so too when the waters of the flood subsided, the world was purified from the licentiousness which had corrupted it in the days of Noah. When a person becomes ritually impure, he must immerse in a ritual bath, a mikveh. The Talmud tells us that a mikveh must be filled with 40 se’ahs (a measure of water). Immersion in a mikveh is the consummate Jewish symbol of spiritual renewal. The use of numbers to replace letters in Hebrew alphabets is a popular exegesis technique in medieval Kabbalists who sought out mystical insights into their sacred texts or were looking for new interpretations. Gematria is an alphanumeric code where letters and words in the Hebrew alphabet are assigned numbers, values, or calculations. It is commonly used in Jewish culture to understand text, particularly within the Torah, on a deeper and more spiritual level. I will also point out to you at this point is Kabbalah teaches that any word or phrase with the same gematria can be substituted in a verse from the Tanach. To paraphrase the first line of a popular late 1950s soul song, “Wonderful World”, by Sam Cooke, Lou Adler and Herb Alpert, “I don’t know much about numerology” or, as it is known in Hebrew, gematria. But it seemed a coincidence that the sum of the 3 numerals in ESRA’s 162 Chanukah issue was 9, the numbers of the candles on the Chanukiah. Throughout history, some people have believed that the Torah contains secrets that can be revealed by gematria and used to predict historical events. This belief continues to this day, and was popularized by Michael Drasin’s best-selling (and much criticized) The Bible Code, published in 1997. Some Hasidic communities that are steeped in the study of kabbalistic literature believe that the Torah, as read through the lens of gematria, contains clues to current events. Although a type of gematria system (‘Aru’) was employed by the ancient Babylonian culture, their writing script was logographic, and the numerical assignments they made were to whole words. If you enjoyed this write-up and you would certainly such as to obtain even more facts concerning 主页 kindly see our own web site. The value of these words were assigned in an entirely arbitrary manner and correspondences were made through tables,[2] and so cannot be considered a true form of gematria. Aru was very different from the gematria systems used by Hebrew and Greek cultures, which used alphabetic writing scripts.
