The word facebook when written in Hebrew letters is the exact same numerical value as “Koach Amalek” which means. The Strength of Amalek. Just like in battle, just before one falls in defeat, they will try their best to use up all their arsenal. Perhaps this is Amalek’s last punch, so to speak….i.e. Amalek’s last strength.
Don’t let social media distract you. Stay focused on what’s important in life.
Have a great day.
On a similar note, a friend of mine pointed out that the gematria of “Nitzavim VaYelech” “ניצבים וילך” is the also the exact same gematria. Which at first glance, doesn’t seem to have any connection.
We know that according to Jewish tradition “the world as we know it” will exist for only 6000 years. The Vilna Gaon zt”l (1720 – 1979) teaches us something amazing. He says that the Torah portions found in the book of Dvarim (Deuteronomy) correspond to the last 1000 years of this world. (i.e., The year 5000 – 6000 according to the Jewish Calendar).
Meaning that, hidden within the book of Devarim is all that will transpire during these last 1000 years.
He explains that the whole book of Devarim is divided into 10 Portions, each portion corresponding to 100 years out of the 1000. Based on this, the Gaon combines Nitzavim-VaYelech as one Parasha (just as we customarily read it this way) and it corresponds to the 100 years from 5700-5800. Which is the 100 years we are currently in.
Something to think about.
