Our Boys: The Message in Their Names



[by Rabbi David Katz - Tzfat, Israel]

(1) Eyal ben Iris Tshura / Ori
  אייל בן איריס תשורה / אורי
  320  Ayal ben Ori is gematria {Naar]   נער - youth,  also Yishai [320]
Roshei Teivot [initial letters]     את אבא Et Aba: Father
also ''comes Av"''
Sofei Teivot [end letters]   הנילס  - the Nile [River]
''Comes the Father'', and ''youth''


2. Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim / Ophir
  גילעד מיכאל בן בת גלים  / אופיר
(2) Roshei Teivot    אמ בג בג - mother of ''Bag Bag''

Ben Bag-Bag was a rather mysterious Rabbi and a disciple of Rabbi Hillel of the early Tannaim age, appearing at the end of the Mishnah in Pirkei Avot. He is quoted in the Mishna: Turn it, and turn it, for everything is in it. Reflect on it and grow old and gray with it. Don't turn from it, for nothing is better than it. Another mysterious Rabbi of the same time, by the name of Ben He-He, is considered by some to be the same person. Speculation by Torah scholars leads many to believe these names to be labels to cover the true identities of these Rabbis because they were gerim who were persecuted by Roman authorities during the Roman occupation of the Land of Israel. Another Rabbinic tradition holds that Ben Bag Bag was the ger that Hillel symbolically taught the whole Torah while the ger stood on one foot.  Source: Wikipedia 
i.e. the message is that Gerim are being revealed.

The Psalm 72 and Shem/Bavel references and present news events occuring simultaneously are davka hints towards Noahide Gerim.

Sofei Teivot -   לדן תמר  - the judgment of  Tamar
[The Midrash calls Tamar the Mother of Moshiach, for her lineage gives way to Malchus beis David, and she was awarded this through harsh din with Yehuda. Yehuda is synonymous with Hebron, the location of these events.]

 גלעד מיכאלGilad Michoel: Gilad spelt without the yud = 208 = Yitzchak - as the Baal HaTurim says ''when Yishmael falls, Yitzchak i.e. the son of David, rises'' - as is known the many associations of Yitzchak with the Jewish people.  The Arizal states [in reference to his own name] that the name Yitzchak is a siman l'geula [sign of Redemption]



3. Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah / Avraham
     יעקב נפתלי בן רחל דבורה  / אברהם 
(3) The Roshei teivot:   רב דין / בני דר Rav Din / B''nei dor - a lot of judgment on the children of the generation;  also דביר נ  [Dvir-Nun] - the Holy of Holies of Nun i.e. Nun Shaarie Bina - the 50 Gates of Understanding

בנדרי   -  with nidrei [as in Kol Nidrei] [another hint in connection with Bag Bag, i.e. Gerim]
Sofei Teivot:  לבניה  which is a reference to Rachel's children
הלבני  - ''HaLibni'' is the name of the family that came out in the Exodus [Bamidbar 3:21]  - family of the Gershonites and they were called the Livnites because of the bricks they made in Egypt, and that name is a sign of the Redemption that was going to happen so G-d encapsulated it in their names, because the names of people show the generation what G-d is doing.

Roshei Teivot  בירדן    - in the Jordan [nearby Jordan Valley]

ב[מסבו] נרדי  
Shir HaShirim 1:12  Shir HaShirim 1:12
''While the king sat at his table, my spikenard sent forth its fragrance.''
Nard is a fragrant herb but used here as the bad odour of idolatry
Gilad Michoel is the gematria Reyach [smell]
The beis is of the verse במסבו  which is in reference to the table of the King.

 Roshei teivot spells B''nei Adar; Sofei Teivot spells B''li Haman [without Haman]

Yaakov Naftali - 752 - gematria ''Emunah'' [loosely translated as ''faith'']



Gematria of Rachel Devorah is 555 which is  Moshiach ben Yosef in Atbash
Devorah = 217 - gematria ''Ani Yosef''
Rachel = atbash gematria ''Kohen Tzedek'', which is Eliyahu
and the reason why we say Eliyahu in conjunction with לבניה is from the Midrash which says Eliyahu is from B''nei Rachel

The names of all three boys is gematria 920 which again is the Roshei teivot gematria of ''Kohen Tzedek'' and also Moshiach HaRishon which is obviously symbolic of Moshiach ben Yosef

The beginning and end letters of the family names:
the Roshei teivot of the family names is the gematria ''Shamayim'' and the end letters is the gematria ''Rachel of Heaven.


Roshei Teivot of boys first names [omitting Gilad] is   אמני
גיל-עד
גיל means either the age or generation of, and the עד would be 74 - [5774]
- or the gladness of 74 or - to shake with fear from 74 - or we will rejoice in 74



Roshei teivot of first names אי  then the word  מגן = where is the shield/Magen Eretz Yisrael
The Roshei teivot of the three names: ארן דבי - Aron David ben Yishai - [the ark of David ben Yishai]

The initial and end letters of all their names spells B'din Gamliel - Rabbi Gamaliel’s overriding philosophy was: "Whoever has mercy on other people, Heaven will have mercy upon him; whoever does not have mercy on other people, Heaven will not have mercy upon him."

Beginning and end letters of the boys' names [without their parents' names]
דניאל גם ליב
Daniel also lion;  or Daniel b'gimel : i.e. Daniel in [all] three

Three fathers names, gematria: בנס - with miracle



Psalm 72* tells the entire story!!
[take all previous hints into account]
*click to open Psalm 72 in a new window

***Psalm 72 is King David's last psalm, and written to King Solomon. The objective is to acknowledge the Nations [Noahides] from Zion, and judge / operate from righteousness. One pillar of the psalm, is that nations and isles will come upon Jerusalem with Gold gifts for the Temple. Verses 14-20 are especially apropos to the current situation and a possible unfolding of events. The rest of the Psalm is in alignment with the Islands of today.

72:4 - Note  לִבְנֵי   : Libni 

72:7 - Note the family name  יִפְרַח [Eyal Yifrach

72:10 ''The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.''

The Metsudas David explains that the Kings of Shvah will bring gifts called TShura - Tshura means ''flowering [Iris/Yifrach]with gifts of gold''.

As we write this,  Rabbi Tovia Singer is in the midst of a pilgrimage to Papua New Guinea and the Papuans want to give their gold to Jerusalem for the Third Temple.  The whole episode of the kidnapping happens when those islands in the Prophecy are in the news.  Tovia Singer's mission is unprecedented... with his presence in the islands at the very time the boys are kidnapped, fulfilling Psalm 72.

72:13  עַל]-דַּל]  - Sofei Teivot Gilad Michael [דל is a common theme in the Psalm, of those in need of mercy]

72:14  מִתּוֹךְ וּמֵחָמָס יִגְאַל נַפְשָׁם - HAMAS
the first letters of the boys'  names spell יגאל with a left over [מ [מתוך and [נ [נפשם...leaving the word "and from Hamas" revealed alone.
Can be understood as ''in the midst of Hamas.... He will redeem their souls''
"from fraud and Hamas he will redeem their  souls and precious will be their blood in his eyes. 

72:17 -  ינין (יִנּוֹן) שְׁמוֹ: - can be understood as ''His name [Moshiach] will be Nun'''[see Nun Shaarai Bina above]

72:7 - ריח/ירח another reference to the Nerd spice and 218 reference above.
72:20 [David ben] Yishai - 320, same as Naar above; David is called a Naar [youth]
Yaakov Naftali initial letters = נר - ד'ב'י - the soul/light of David ben Yishai


Now let's look at  Noah 10:28-29: Shvah, Ofir and Havila bringing gold to Jerusalem - in the order of Shem's sons :  our attention is drawn to Shem [Gerim] and gifts of gold, as mentioned above [Tshura].
All 3 names relate to gold in the Torah [Shvah - our Psalm, Ofir, Navi, and Havila, Bereishis]


These are the families of the sons of Noah according to their generations, in their nations, and from these, the nations were separated on the earth after the Flood.  Noah 10:32 
this is immediately followed by the story of the Tower of Babel... the making of the bricks  נִלְבְּנָה לְבֵנִים and the name Libni  Noah 11:3

notice a reference to Migdal [Bavel] מגדל - ג -ד - מ - ל - end/beginning letters to Gilad Michael

11:4  Note the current Iraqi uprising reminding us of the Tower of Babel, both in exact location of the Tower of Bavel, and the general theme of world events, Nimrod comparisons, etc.. *****

  2. wb, Devorah, just wondering, is this incident indicate an Abrahamic allusion to the 3 archangels that visited Sarah's tent, because my dad is in rahav and I feel like he was kidnapped for whatever reason, for orphans at work, for workers to feel justified for incompetence, for a generation disrespectful to noah and, less known, to learn from Lot hatzadik;
