Conveys Ideas Through Numbers
Gematria is a polarizing topic.
While many love it, many others
view it with skepticism.
What is the purpose of gematria? Can we truly learn anything
from the numerical representation of words? What is beneath
these creative yet apparently simplistic interpretations?
- While jointly pursuing semichah and a PhD in mathematics,
it seemed natural for Elie Feder to love gematria. However,
he was bothered by these compelling questions. That is,
until he discovered the purpose of gematria.
Gematria Refigured presents the discoveries that led to the
author's transformation from a gematria skeptic to a gematria
lover. Through its many examples, it develops a theory that
elucidates how the Torah and Chazal use gematria to direct us
toward a very specific type of idea and to provide perspectives
into many mitzvos, themes, and stories in Tanach.
"This book has paved a path to understand the hidden riddle [of gematria]."
