The Eighth Day
The word "Shemini"- שְּׁמִינִי means eighth.
The Eighth Day was the First Day of the First month-1st Nissan 2449. On this day the Sanctuary became fully functional and holy fire descended from above on to the Mizbeach (Altar) to receive the sacrifices of Aaron and his two remaining sons.
The gematria of the word “Shemini”- שְּׁמִינִי is 410.
The small gematria of the word is 14. The number 14 corresponds to the number 8 as I have explained on many occasions in my commentary, as the letter “Chet”- חwhich has a gematria of 8 is written in the Torah as two letters “Zayin”-ז' which together form a letter “Chet”- ח . As the letter “Zayin”- ז' has a gematria of 7, two letters “Zayin” are 14 which make one Chet (8).
The number 410 is also the gematria of the word “Sanctuary” (Mishkan)-משכן.
Thus “Shemini”- שְּׁמִינִי corresponds to “Sanctuary”- משכן.
The Name “Hashem”- יְהוָהis written 1820 times in the Torah.
Moreover, the word Mishkan- משכן also has a gematria of 1070 =8 (Nun as 700).
Thus Sanctuary (Mishkan) (8) = Shemini (8)!
From here we understand why the Sanctuary “Mishkan” (8) was inaugurated on the 8th day-בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי.
The Parsha begins with the words “On the eighth day”- בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי.
These words have a gematria of 473 = 14=8 or 1033+2 words=1+8 counting final Mem as 600.
The gematria of the word “The eighth”- הַשְּׁמִינִי is 415=10=1.
Thus the Parsha which describes the events on the “Eighth Day”, which occurred on the First Day of the Month of Nissan, is connected from its root to the numbers 1 and 8 which is the Code in which the entire Torah is encrypted. The Code of Hai (18).
In the first month in the second year on the first of the month
בחדש הראשון בשנה השנית באחד לחדש
The Mishkan was Established
566=17=8 or + 2 words=19=10=1
In Rashi’s first commentary to the Parsha he writes that the Eighth Day of the Inauguration was the First (Rosh Chodesh) of Nissan for on that day the Sanctuary was erected and it took “Ten Crowns”- עשר עטרות (Seder Olam 7; Shabbat 87.b).
The Eighth (8) Day + Ten (10) Crowns= 18
Ten Crowns- Rosh Chodesh Nissan
עשר עטרות- ראש חדש ניסן
The number 26 is the gematria of the Name "Hashem"-יְהוָה
