A Sign from The Angel Micha'el ...?



This is a photo of the final resting place of the car that ploughed through pedestrians at Times Square NY earlier today.  As you can see it is underneath a sign that says 1515 Broadway.  There was some speculation on a conspiracy site that this sign weirdly suggested ''ISIS" - but a quick search on the internet for the gematria of 1515 came up with the following:


From Rabbi Ginsburgh:

1515 = 15 x מיכאל  [Micha’el]. We have previously noted that Micha’el [מיכאל ], whose numerical value is equal to 101, is considered the angelic minister of the Jewish people, Israel. The numerical value of Israel- ישראל is 541. Amazingly, the 101st prime number is 541!

Let us examine the names of the angels in context of their mission: Micha’el came to give Sarah the news of Isaac’s upcoming birth; Gavri’el came to destroy Sodom; and, Repha’el came to heal Abraham. Taking the sum of the angels’ names with the objects of their mission, we get that:


מיכאל שרה ┴ גבריאל סדם ┴ רפאל אברהם = 1515 = שרה שרה שרה


Now, the numerical value of Sarah [שרה] is 505, which is 5 times the numerical value of Micha’el [מיכאל]:

שרה = 5 · מיכאל , or 5 · 101

Therefore, it follows that 1515 = 15 · מיכאל , or 15 times Micha’el.

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Daniel 12:1

1515 Braodway

Can't help recalling the phrase "Broad is the way that leads to destruction". Their book.

Wonderful post Devorah. It gives chizuk.
I am wondering, however, about this portion, "last page of the Talmud folio of Makot, and learn it well,” Rabbi Edelsten wrote” i.e., that there is more to extrapolate from this portion. I wonder who can do so?

Just to let you know, think and also read that 'Breaking News' site is not a Jewish site.

Believe it or not, it actually is a Jewish site, run by Jews. That is the first time I've ever linked to it, due to un-moderated comments from Xtians there, making everyone believe it is actually a Xtian site.

Today something "new" has been introduced to your blog.

I can't put my finger on it, but there seems some sort of a 'shift'has occurred.

My gut feeling is that your blog is taking a new turn. A turn to even more chizuk than previously.

Your light shines stronger than before.

Chazak Ubarukh!

I find if so interesting that the sign on the street-post indicates a RIGHT HAND TURN eg: ONE WAY arrow. Does that hint to the pasuk in the krias Sh'ma she'al ha'mito which we say x 3 before going to bed: B'shem Hashem Elokay Yisroel, Mi'Ymini Michoel etc. etc. loosel: In Hashem's name, Angel MICHOEL IS AT MY RIGHT HAND!!!

BTW: The above quote is from Siddur Ashkenaz as well as Siddur Sefrd.

ARIZAL'S Siddur is different. I don't know much about Siddur SEFARAD, but I'd love for one of your readers to enlighten me on this.

What do you think it all means, Devorah?

that's interesting: in Kabbalah the sefira of chessed [kindness] is also on the right - as opposed to gevurah [strength] on the left. Maybe it's a hint that the Geula is coming with KINDNESS.
