The Sod of Torah is neither the Kabbalah nor Gematria. Rather, hidden in the Torah is a word for word translation based on Hebrew etymology that informs a deep and specific understanding of the human mind and how it functions in a complex world. Adam is not named after the red earth from which he is said to have been made, but rather as an expression of his essence as a representation of the first true thinker, his name being derived from the Hebrew verb DaMaH meaning to consider, to imagine, to plan, and to compare. Avram is not only the first of our patriarchs, the first to recognize haShem, he is also a representation of the human willingness to fully engage with the world that haShem created, his name being derived from the Hebrew verb aVaH meaning to be willing to give forth of oneself and RaM meaning elevated of exalted. Come and explore a level of Torah beyond your expectations.
