Welcome back to my blog on gematria, the Merkabah and the birth of the Alephbet.
Have you ever wondered about the Hanukkah acronym?
ח נרות והלכה כבית הלל
Hillel is 65. So how does the Halakha of lighting the eight candles relate to Hillel? Well – if you light one candle on the first day, and two on the second etc. until you light eight on the eighth day you will have lit 36 candles.
36 x YHVH = 936
9360 / 144 = 65
65 is (Samekh + Heh) which is the path/gate of the Shekinah on the Seven Palaces; the path that brings all bounty and blessings to the world. Isn’t that nice?
For extras: check out the values of 9000 and also 360 on the Shematria gematria calculator.
Have a wonderful & happy eight days, everyone! And stay tuned for more numerical honey!
