The First Day of Creation-AhMbDvd

By Aharon Moshe (ben-Dovid) Sanders Sept 26, 2007

This short sequence of words contains some insights that I have come up with and wish to share with anyone who may have happened upon this site. the current concepts were heavily influenced and inspired by Tractate (Masechta) Chagigah. What follows is a sort of meta-anlaysis of the Parsha Bereishis, or borrowing jargon from theater arts, reading the subtext of Bereishis.

My reader my find that the analysis goes off into several different directions at the same time, much like the scientific description of the big bang has massive waves of energy fusing into all directions from some central point, the point itself never being adequately described.

My regular readers (send me an e-mail if you are out there) may notice I have been jazzing up this site with images, color text etc. A large mass of words without images tends to appear mundane. It is also within the nature of the typical internet surfer to view things briefly and only go on if something truly calls their attention.

The space above was intended fro an image, it may get upoaded maybe not.

The first line of Bereishis contains 7 words. The seven words correspond to the seven days of the week. The opening remark ends with Ha-Eretz, which is translated as the earth. I know none of this is Earth Shattering kind of content.

The expalnation then continues with Ha-Eretz we can actually count the hebrew words that are contained within the 1st 5 lines of Bereishis. Try it each and every time there should be no surprise that there are 52.

So, we have the first sentence of Bereishis which contains seven words which sets an important cycle, the week. Then by the end of the Torah's description Bereishis 1-5, we have the completion of the first day of creation Yom Echod! I might be looking for holidays here but Yom Echod- the first day, seems like something worth celebrating.

The Torah gets these concepts out there in 52 words, which correspond to the 52 weeks of a year. All this of course in One Day of Hashem's creation!
