Rosh Chodesh Adar for the year תשעח had two months of Adar since it was a Leap Year. The actions you do on the 12th day of Nissan 5777 will impact either positively or negatively the month of Adar in the year 5778.

The day the action should be made is the Twelfth Day of Nissan in the year 5777 - תשעז. This date is the evening of April 7 2017 to sundown on April 8 2017.


According to the teachings of the ARI (Rabbi Isaac Luria may he forever be a light unto the world) one should follow the steps below. The more one learns about the following:

  1. The permutation of the names of God associated with the month of Adar;
  2. The letters that created the month of Adar and the constellation associated with the Tribe of Naftali which is Picses which is Dagim in Hebrew דגים; Dagim means Fishes.
  3. The correlation of items from the Sefer Yetzirah;
  4. The Torah Verses that describe the initial offering of the Nasi of the Tribe of Naftali;
  5. The character traits described by the name of that Nasi which for Naftali is Achirah Ben Ainan, as well as the character traits described by the permutation of the name of the Tribe; and
  6. The consciousness behind the giving of each of the articles of the offering described by the Torah Verses, the stronger will be one's connection to the tools of Kabbalah that will give a person control over the month of the year that is being developed on the twelfth day of Nissan which is control over the month of Adar.

Tribe = Naftali; Sense = Laughter; Controller = Spleen

  • Steps to follow

    It is best to do the saying or scanning of this information during the morning hours since morning has the energy of Mercy within it.

    1. The permutation of the Tetragrammaton.

    There are 4 letters in the Tetragrammaton which would normally form 24 permutations, but there are 2 letters which are the same which makes only 12 permutations. One for each month. Scan these Names of God from Right to Left. These are the permutations for the month of Adar. We are taught that all 12 permutations should be scanned for the month of Adar.

    יהוה יההו יוהה הוהי הויה ההוי והיה וההי ויהה היהו היוה ההיו אהיה אההי איהה היהא היאה ההיא יהאה יההא יאהה האהי האיה ההאי

    2. The Ana Bekoach is composed of the 42 letter name of God used during the creation of the physical world. As such it has the essence of creation with in it. This also includes the essence of the Science of Hebrew Astrology. Please Say/Sing the Ana Bekoach; Stop at the Second Verse and Scan these Letters and Names from Right to Left.

    ג ק

    Gimmel created the Planet צדק which is Jupiter.

    3. Various relationships are described in the Sefer Yetzirah. These relationships help create unity within the physical world by meditating upon the relationships. Take note of the following:

    The name of the Tribe Naftali can be translated as Nafta Li which means Sweetness to me. Tribe = Naftali; Sense = Laughter ; Controller = Spleen

    4. The donation for the tribe of Naftali is the same as all of the other Tribal donations. Yet the consciousness is different as you will see below. By making connection to the reading from the Torah of each donation by each Nasi each day during Nissan, we can take control of the Astrological effect associated with that Tribe. Read or Scan the Hebrew right to left; The smaller letters are the transliteration of the Hebrew; and the regular letters are the English Translation of Bamidbar Numbers Chapter 7 Verses 78 to 83.


    Verse 1 for this Nasi; Verse 78 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    ביום שנים עשר יום נשיא לבני נפתלי אחירע בן-עינן

    BeYom Shenaim Esser Yom Nasi Levnai Naftali Achirah Ben Ainan

    On the Twelfth day Achirah Ben Ainan, prince of the children of Naftali:


    Verse 2 for this Nasi; Verse 79 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    קרבנו קערת-כסף אחת שלשים ומאה משקלה מזרק אחד כסף שבעים שקל בשקל הקדש שניהם מלאים סלת בלולה בשמן למנחה

    Karbeno Karit Kesef Echat Sheloshim Oomeah Meshaklah Mezerak Echad Kesef Sheviim Shekel BeShekel HaKodesh Shenaihem Melaim Solet Belulah Beshemen Leminchah

    he presented for his offering one silver dish, the weight thereof was a hundred and thirty shekels, one silver basin of seventy shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary; both of them full of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal-offering;


    Verse 3 for this Nasi; Verse 80 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    כף אחת עשרה זהב מלאה קטרת

    Kaf Echat ASarah Zehav MelaAh Ketoret

    one golden pan of ten shekels, full of incense;

    Verse 4 for this Nasi; Verse 81 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    פר אחד בן-בקר איל אחד כבש-אחד בן-שנתו לעלה

    Par Echad Ben Bakar Ehyil Echad Kavash Echad Ben Shenato LeOlah

    one young bullock, one ram, one he-lamb of the first year, for a burnt-offering;


    Verse 5 for this Nasi; Verse 82 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    שעיר-עזים אחד לחטאת

    Seir Ezim Echad LeChataat

    one male of the goats for a sin-offering;

    Verse 6 for this Nasi; Verse 83 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    ולזבח השלמים בקר שנים אילם חמשה עתודים חמשה כבשים בני-שנה חמשה זה קרבן אחירע בן-עינן

    Oolzevach Hashlamim Bakar Shenaim alim Chamesha Ahtudim Chamesha Kevasim Benai Shanah Chamesha Zeh Karban Achirah Ben Ainan

    and for the sacrifice of peace-offerings, two oxen, five rams, five he-goats, five he-lambs of the first year. This was the offering of Achirah Ben Ainan

    Additional Meditation based on Mei HaShiloah (R. Hershy Worch and Betzalel Edwards translations)

    For Naftali Achirah ben Ainan. לְנַפְתָּלִי, אֲחִירַע בֶּןעֵינָן One who is immersed in the love of something does not know what his portion is. אֲחִירַע Achirah from the word "too late" for he is too late to receive the good. Still he keeps himself well intact and is not immersed in the lust. Ben Ainan בֶּןעֵינָן like Ayin/eye means that he has beautiful eyes to see his rightful portion. G-d allotted a portion to each tribe and effuses the light of life to each one unto itself, with no one tribe's portion similar to anothers. Better late than never. And one who is happy with his own portion, that is a rich fellow. On this last day, we need to take stock to be content, and to look at our fellow Jews with a good eye, to judge them on the scale of merit. This is great preparation for Seder night where we may be in close confines with some folk we'd rather not hang out with. All Jews are one, and especially on this night. Do some mental preparation on yourself, and how to give the benefit of the doubt to your future Seder participants.

    5. The name of each Tribe gives hints to the character traits of the Astrological Sign associated with that Tribe. Also, the name of each Nasi gives additional insights into the character traits of the tribe and the Astrological Signs.

    Our Sages teach that not all of these names are positive traits. This indicates traits that need to be worked upon to transform the person (ourselves) into a higher state of consciousness. The more one learns about the names associated with the Astrological Signs the more one can learn about his own correction!

    The Tribe for this Twelfth day of Nissan is Naftali connected to Adar

    The Nasi for Adar is Achirah Ben Ainan

    Each name including the full name has Verses from the Tanach that speak to the person about their correction and also character and personality traits. Here are the verses for Achirah Ben Ainan from the Tanach

    6. Each Nasi brought the same contribution for his sacrifice in honor of the dedication of the Mishkan. There is a custom and teaching about Torah. There is no extra letter in the Torah. So why does the Torah list the exact same contribution from each Nasi? It would be less letters to say it once only! The reason is that there is an important spiritual law about consciousness that can be learned from the following matrix. This matrix will also help one make a better connection to the control of the Astrological Signs. To see the contribution read verse 1 to 6 above.

    One final point of action

    According to Kabbalistic sources, it is a proper custom to set aside thirteen coins for Tzedakah on Rosh Chodesh Nissan and all of the first 13 days of Nissan, as thirteen is the numerical value of the words "Echad" (one) and "Ahava" (love), signifying the great love that HaShem Echad has for His beloved children, Am Yisroel, and thus hopefully help bring the final Geulah and Mashiach Tzidkeinu this month. (Moed L'Kol Chai from Rav Chaim Pal'agi Zatzal 1:3 quoting Sefer Ma'aseh HaTzedaka Siman 64).

    These charity or Tzedakah amounts will impact your year in a very positive way. As it is taught in Kabbalah the actions we do on these days impact our Rosh Chodeshim for the months of the coming year. The more positive actions we do the more positive impact it will have within our coming year. The giving of 13 Nickels per day is $8.45. 845 is the gematria of תהמת which translates as "Deep Waters." This term refers to the study of Kabbalah and the depths / secrets of the Torah or The Kabbalah.

    By physically setting aside these amounts you connect to the energy of the gematria. Accumulate these amounts for the 13 days and send the total on the 14th day of Nissan. Then you connect both to the daily amounts gematria and the total amounts gematria.

    chanoch is adding the following:

    A penny has no value according to Kabbalah.

    13 Nickels is 65 the gematria of Adonai. אדני.

    13 Dimes is 130 the gematria of a ladder (Sulam) and Mt Sinai (The Gift of the Torah).

    13 Quarters is 325 which is 25 x 13- which is also the sum of the numbers from 1 to 25. 25 represents 5 x 5 or The 5 worlds within the 5 worlds.

    13 Half Dollars are $6.50 - see above for 65.

    13 Dollars connect to Love and unity as said above.

    What about multiples?

    2 x 13 is 26 the gematria of the Name of HaShem.

    3 x 13 is 39 the gematria of the Hebrew word DEW or Tal. The Prophets tell us that Mashiach will come connected to DEW.

    4 x 13 is 52 which is twice the Name of HaShem in gematria.

    5 x 13 is 65 - see above

    6 x 13 is 78 - which is the gematria of Lechem which is bread - referred to as the staff of life.

    7 x 13 is 91 representing the unity of the Names HaShem and Adoni. It represents the unity of the physical and spiritual worlds.

    If you would like to know about another multiple or the total amount you are gifting to tithing and Tzedakah send me an email requesting the information.
