The Thinking Jew Podcast: Ep. 26 Numbers in Judaism; 6, 7 and 8

The Thinking Jew Podcast: Ep. 26 Numbers in Judaism; 6, 7 and 8 1

Intro

Did you ever wonder why there are 7 colors in a rainbow?  Why didn’t G-d create it with 8? or 6?

Ever wonder why G-d created the world in 6 days and then rested on the 7th?  Why not in 5 and rest on the 6th?

In Judaism, numbers are more than a quantification.  Each number has an inner meaning and that expresses itself everywhere we find that number.

Join me as we uncover the deeper meaning of the numbers 6, 7 and 8, and we realize how connected all these seemingly disparate “sevens” really are.

Happy Listening!

Rabbi Moshe
