Genesis 2. 23- בראשית 23.2

23.' And the Man said, 'This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman because out of Man she was taken - וַיֹּאמֶר הָאָדָם זֹאת הַפַּעַם עֶצֶם מֵעֲצָמַי וּבָשָׂר מִבְּשָׂרִי לְזֹאת יִקָּרֵא אִשָּׁה כִּי מֵאִישׁ לֻקְחָה זֹּאת (6087+15 words=6092=17=8 counting final Mems as 600).

Rashi adds that as the name "Woman"- אִשָּׁה is taken from the name "Man"- אִישׁ one learns that the world was created with Hebrew, the Holy Tongue-לשון הקודש (Beraishit Rabbah 18.4).

This teaching of the Sages is proven in the most emphatic way by the following gematriot:

Woman from Man was taken
אִשָּׁה מֵאִישׁ לֻקְחָה

Holy Tongue
לשון הקודש

From here we learn that the entire world was created through the Code of 1 and 8 that reflects the connection between the metaphysical and the physical through the Name of "Hai"- חי(18) which means "life". 

It is in this Code that the Torah is encrypted.

As the Torah is the "Blueprint of the Universe" so the Name of "Hai" is the living force of the Universe and everything in it is sustained by it every second of the day and night.

Without the Name "Hai" there would be no life. 

It is that simple.

When you shall go out to war

כִּי־תֵצֵא לַמִּלְחָמָה עַל־אֹיְבֶיךָ
Parshat Ki-Teizai- כִּי תֵצֵא contains the most commandments of all the Parshat of the Torah -27 positive and 47 negative. The Parsha is divided into 44 (8) passages (parshiot) of text.

Although the Parsha both begins and ends with commandments arising in a war context, the overwhelming majority of the Parsha details commandments of morality between man and his fellow at home. Thus the Torah teaches us that if man is able to control his evil inclination in time of war against his enemy, how much more so he will be able to control it at home with regard to his fellow.

The words “Ki-Teizai”- כִּי תֵצֵא mean “When you shall go out”.

The going out is to “the war”- לַמִּלְחָמָה.

The gematria of the words “Ki-Teizei” “When you go out”- כִּי תֵצֵא is 521=8.

The gematria of the words “to the war”- לַמִּלְחָמָה is 153=1+8 or + 1 word=10=1.

The gematria of the words “When you go out to the war”- כִּי תֵצֵא לַמִּלְחָמָה is 674=17=8.

The going out to war is not just a physical one but also a spiritual one; “going out” one against the evil inclination who appears at the most opportune moments to lead us astray in our daily activities from serving Hashem. Thus getting through each day is both a spiritual and physical battle from the enemy outside and the enemy within. 

The 44th and final parsha of Parshat Ki Teitzei details with the constant war against “Amalek”- עֲמָלֵק the ultimate spiritual and physical evil which has to be utterly destroyed by the Jewish People in order to complete the mission of World Rectification- תיקון עולם.

It is no coincidence that Barack Hussein Obama- ברק חוסיין אובאמה is the 44thPresident of the United States of America 

The gematria of his Capital city, Washington-וושינגטון is 440=8 + 1 word=441.

Soon “truth”- אמת (441will be revealed the world.

Barack Hussein Obama
בראק חוסיין אובאמה

ישמעאל אדום

Barack Obama
בראק אובאמה


Soon King Mashiach, the nemesis of Ishmael and Edom

He will reveal the truth to the world, go out to war and defeat Amalek.

B'Midbar-5.10- במדבר

10. ’And every man's holies shall be his, whatever any man gives the Priest it shall be his- וְאִישׁ אֶת קֳדָשָׁיו לוֹ יִהְיוּ אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִתֵּן לַכֹּהֵן לוֹ יִהְיֶה (3948+11 words=3959=26=8 counting final Nuns as 700).

The verse can be divided so:
·         And every man's holies shall be his- וְאִישׁ אֶת קֳדָשָׁיו לוֹ יִהְיוּ(1205=8);
·         Whatever any man gives the Priest it shall be his- אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִתֵּן לַכֹּהֵן לוֹ יִהְיֶה (1443+6 words=18).
Rashi explains here that the "holies" belong to the giver and the giving to the Priest is a pleasure gained by the owner through the act of giving. Another Midrashic interpretation is cited by Rashi that if one does not give tithes then that will be the entire crop that one will get-i.e. only a tithe worth!

Thus the more one gives the more abundant will ones crop be.

This is a great secret of Kabbalah; the more one gives the more one receives. This is kabbalah (“Receiving Hashem”- קבל ה'); the relationship between giving and receiving and the "intent"-כונה (“Kavannah”) in which one gives something to another- giving for the sake of receiving or giving purely for the sake of giving and expecting no reward. The latter is the highist form of giving and the rewards received are the greatest. This principle is true with all relationships- with one’s fellow, one’s spouse, one’s teacher and with Hashem. It is also true in matters of honor and respect as one who shuns honor and respect will be honored and respected.

The more one studies and performs the mitzvoth and labors over the Torah through love of Hashem with no expectation of reward, the higher the level of spirituality and closeness to Hashem one will attain and thus the higher the reward is, as the only true reward in this world is "attaching"- דבקות (“D’vekut”) ones soul to Hashem, to its source, and this is done through the performance of mitzvoth with love. This is the crux of the matter: studying for reward or studying “for its own sake” –לשמה (“L’Shmah”); performing mitzvoth out of fear or reward, or performing them out of love for Hashem.

What is “for its own sake”- לשמה?

For the Name of Hashem
לשם ה'
לשם יהוה

The gematria of the word “intent”- כונה is 81.

The gematria of the word “attachment”- דבקות is 512=8.
