  • Manna Portion
  • 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 Sivan;

    2) The letters that created the month of Sivan and the constellation associated with the Tribe of Zevulun which is the Gemini - Tuomim (Twins) תאומים;

    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 Zevulun;

    5) The character traits described by the name of that Nasi which for Zevulan is Eliav Ben Cheilon, as well as the character traits described by the permutation of the name of the Tribe;

    6) And The consciousness behind the giving of each of articles of the offering described by the Torah Verses,

  • 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 Sivan. יוהה איהה

    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 within it. This also includes the essence of the Science of Hebrew Astrology. Please Say/Sing the Ana Bekoach; Stop at the Sixth Verse and Scan these Letters and Names from Right to Left.

    ר ז

    Reish created the Planet CoCav כוכב which means Mercury and the Zion created the Astrological sign of Gemini which in Hebrew is Tuomim תאומים which means Twins.

    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 planet Mercury called Cocav in Hebrew also is used to refer to the stars. Please note when permutating this word that the first 2 letters have a Gematria of 26 representing the Tetragrammaton as well as the light of fulfillment and the second two letters have a Gematria of 22 which represents the 22 letters of the Hebrew Aleph Bet. In essence 22 represents the totality of vessel while the 26 represents the totality of fulfillment. This is the unity of Light and Vessel; Spiritual and Physical; and Male and Female. Sivan is the third month of the Hebrew Calendar. 3 is a very important number in the Torah as expressed by the Sages who said, "Blessed is the Merciful One who gave a threefold Torah, to a threefold people, by the third, on the third day in the third month." The Torah has 3 parts - 5 Books of Moshe; The Neviim (Prophets) and Ketuvim (Writings); The Children of Israel are composed of the Priests (Kohanim), Leviim, and Israelim. Moshe is the third sibling of Aaron, Miriam and himself - This is the meaning of the phrase "by the third"; on the third day refers to the period of abstinence from marital relations .

    4. The donation of each Tribe Leader (called a Nasi.) is the same at the dedication of the Mishkan in the desert. 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 24 to 29


    Verse 1 for this Nasi; Verse 24 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    ביום השלישי נשיא לבני זבולן אליאב בן-חלן

    BeYom HaSheLishi Nasi Levnai Zevulun Eliav Ben Cheilon

    On the third day Eliav the son of Cheilon, prince of the children of Zevulun:

    Karbeno Karit Kesef Echat Sheloshim Oomeah Meshaklah Mezerak Echad Kesef Sheviim Shekel BeShekel HaKodesh Shenaihem Melaim Solet Beluulah 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 26 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    כף אחת עשרה זהב מלאה קטרת

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


    Verse 5 for this Nasi; Verse 28 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 29 from Chapter 7 of Bamidbar (Numbers)

    ולזבח השלמים בקר שנים אילם חמשה עתודים חמשה כבשים בני-שנה חמשה זה קרבן אליאב בן-חלן

    Oolzevach Hashlamim Bakar Shenaim alim Chameshe Ahtudim Chamesha Kevasim Benai Shanah Chamesha Zeh Karban Eliav Ben Cheilon

    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 Eliav Ben Cheilon.

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

    "And for Zevulun, Eliav ben Cheilon" לִזְבוּלֻן, אֱלִיאָב בֶּןחֵלֹן

    There is great strength in this tribe. The name "Eliav ben Cheilon" teaches of this, for all their strength was only from the forms of Chokmah that the blessed G-d imbued them. Thus even when they were occupied with wordly matters, even then the blessed G-d imbued strength and vigor to them in order to succeed. This is אֱלִיאָב בֶּןחֵלֹן Eliav ben Cheilon, for אָב Av meaning "father" represents Chokmah/Wisdom, and חֵלֹן Cheilon means strength as mentioned above.

    What kind of strength can you derive from your intuition? Meaning when something "feels" right or wrong, do you rely on this sense? How can we learn to listen to our inner voice, that silent still voice which always leads us the right way? "Father knows Best." Av HaRahaman, please help your children do the right thing always.

    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 day of Sivan is Zevulun

  • Name = Cheilon
  • 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 13 to 17 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 Nisan 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 Tzedaka 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.
