GEMATRIA  
Gematria is a method of studying the holy scriptures where every letter of the Hebrew Alphabet has a numerical Value as illustrated below. Gematria is intended to reveal a finer level of meaning of the 4 levels as illustrated in the PARDES story.
Below you will see the letters of the Hebrew alphabet laid out with the equivalent numbers in 3 columns on the left and in 3 concentric circles on the right. This dual way of representing concepts is frequently found in Kabbalistic writings. People either hate or love Gematrias and I hope that the Gematriaphiles will sent me their favourite Gematrias to be included in this site.


Each letter in the Hebrew alphabet has a numerical value, the same as in the other ancient language of Greek. It is relatively straight fro ward to see the numerical values of the first circle of letters from 1 to 9, from A to U. The second circle starts from yud, the next letter and is 10. From then on the numbers increase in tens , ie 10 20 30 etc from Y to C until we complete the circle at 90 and then next number is 100 Q. From then on the numbers increase in 100s ie 200 300 etc. If you prefer you can seethe same story ,but tabulated as on the left

Gematrias of the 7 items on a shabbos table all reduce to 7. Coincidence??  
Below is a Gematria Analyses of the first sentence of the Bible (the Chumash, the Old Testament, the 5 Books of Moses). It emphasises a relationship between the week, the Lunar month, the numbers 3 7 and 10 and the palindromic number 3773 and lifetime events based on some remarkable work by VernonJenkins
