Torah codes for dates of some major world events since 19’90

The majority of the following Torah Codes was discovered in April 20’20 by the Director of Ask Noah International. The first four codes extend over three consecutive verses in Moses’ prophetic Song at the Sea (Exodus 15:1-18). The three verses are Exodus 15:9-11.

The following diagram depicts the Hebrew letters of these three verses, arranged in a grid that is 30 letters wide. (They are inserted as Hebrew is read from right to left, and their vowel and cantillation signs are included.) The letters of the first three codes are indicated in the solid-color squares in orange, yellow and blue. The letters of the fourth code are outlined in blue. The remaining 5th code is indicated in red and green

1. Code for the first event and date – Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in 19’90

This is coded in verse 15:9, which is outlined in orange in Fig. 1. I first learned of this code in the winter of 19’90, from Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski o.b.m. (He was the President of my synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA.) My understanding is that he discovered this code, but I have not verified that.

English translation: The enemy said: ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’

Hebrew text: אָמַ֥ר  אוֹיֵ֛ב  אֶרְדֹּ֥ף  אַשִּׂ֖יג  אֲחַלֵּ֣ק  שָׁלָ֑ל  תִּמְלָאֵ֣מוֹ  נַפְשִׁ֔י  אָרִ֣יק חַרְבִּ֔י תּֽוֹרִישֵׁ֖מוֹ יָדִֽי

As we go from right to left in the Hebrew, there are eight highlighted letter. They are all initial letters of consecutive words in the verse. These form the date of a year in the Hebrew calendar. First, the letter aleph (א) is repeated five times. The letter aleph stands for the Hebrew word eleph, which means “thousand”. This letter is repeated five times, which can be understood as the number 5000. The next three letters are ש (numerical value 300), ת (numerical value 400) and נ (numerical value 50), which add up to 750. We thus have a code for the Hebrew year 5750, which overlapped the secular year 19’90.

The next consecutive word is אָרִ֣יק (arik). Its letters can also be pronounced as irak, which is cognate with the name Iraq. This prophesies that there will be an event in the year 5750 involving the nation of Iraq. In fact, Iraq invaded Kuwait on 2 August 19’90, corresponding to the 11th of Menachem Av, 5750. Obviously, this verse itself echoes the theme of that event!

2. Code for the second event and date – the Indian Ocean tsunami in 20’04

This code which I discovered (shortly after discovering the code below) is rooted in verse 15:10, which is outlined above in green.

English translation: You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the powerful waters.

Hebrew text: נָשַׁ֥פְתָּ בְרֽוּחֲךָ֖ כִּסָּ֣מוֹ יָ֑ם צָֽלֲלוּ֙ כַּֽעוֹפֶ֔רֶת בְּמַ֖יִם אַדִּירִֽים

The two highlighted letters occur in the world that means “covered”. In Fig. 1, these are letters in two strings of Hebrew letters that that run vertically, highlighted in yellow, through the preceding and following verses, with a spacing of 30 letters. The first string is the word מים (mayim), which means water. The letters in the second string can be rearranged as תשסה, in which the letters are the numerical equivalent for the Hebrew year 5765: ת (numerical value 400), ש (numerical value 300), ס (numerical value 60) and ה (numerical value 5) add up to 765. (In writing the year in Hebrew, the thousand’s place is always omitted as being implicit.)

This prophesies that there will be a major event in the year 5765 involving water. And in fact, the Indian Ocean tsunami occurred on December 26, 20’04, corresponding to the 14th of Tevet, 5765. Obviously, this verse itself echoes the theme of that event!

The meaning of the spacing of 30 letters becomes evident from the next code.

3. Codes in Ex. 15:11 for the third event and its date span – the Corona Virus which was pandemic in 20’20 and 20’21

(A) This code which I discovered in March 20’20 is rooted in verse 15:11, which is outlined above in red.

English translation: Who is like You among the powerful, O L-rd? Who is like You, powerful in the holy place? Too awesome for praises, performing wonders!

Hebrew text: מִֽי כָמֹ֤כָה בָּֽאֵלִם֙ יְהֹוָ֔ה מִ֥י כָּמֹ֖כָה נֶאְדָּ֣ר בַּקֹּ֑דֶשׁ נוֹרָ֥א תְהִלֹּ֖ת עֹ֥שֵׂה פֶֽלֶא

The highlighted letters (highlighted in blue in Fig. 1) are a code with a spacing of 5 letters. It forms a word כרנה which can be pronounced as corona. There is a post-Biblical translation of Tanach in which this word was used with the meaning of  “illness.” [Targum Yonatan ben Uziel, Proverbs 18:14.]

The fact that the verse of this code is connected to the verse of Code 1 above, through an intermediate code with a spacing of 30 letters, can now be understood. It is a prophesy that there will be an event involving corona/illness in 20’20/5780, 30 years after the event involving Iraq in 19’90/5750. The word נוֹרָ֥א (norah = awesome) can also be translated as “terrible,” “dire,” “fearful,” or “shocking”. So obviously, this verse itself echoes the theme of that event!

(B) On July 14, 20’21, I discovered in this same verse a code for the letters of the Hebrew year תשפא = 5781, which ran from Sep. 19, 20’20 to Sep. 6, 20’21. This code is at the end of the verse, with the letters outlined in blue in Fig. 1.

Hebrew text:  מִֽי־כָמֹ֤כָה בָּֽאֵלִם֙ יְהֹוָ֔ה מִ֥י כָּמֹ֖כָה נֶאְדָּ֣ר בַּקֹּ֑דֶשׁ נוֹרָ֥א תְהִלֹּ֖ת עֹ֥שֵׂה פֶֽלֶא

The highlighted letters are a code for the year תשפא with a spacing of 2 letters. There were major political, medical, and social upheavels during that year which affected the people of nations around around the world. Those upheavels were rooted in or aided and abetted by the corona hysteria. All of them can be matched with the warnings by the Talmudic Sages at the end of Mishna Sota. They speak about the difficulties that the world would experience in the time shortly before the true Messiah (Moshiach) comes.

(C) Prominent people who instituted pandemic measures: Fauci and Bennet

On January 27, 20’22, I discovered two additional codes in this verse. The first one indicates a critical impact due to the well-known Dr. Fauci (Director of NIAID in the U.S.).

We saw above that this verse contains a code for the word corona. It also has a code the name Fauci = פשי running backwards, with a spacing of 12 letters (outlined in green in Fig. 1):

מִֽי־כָמֹ֤כָה בָּֽאֵלִם֙ יְהֹוָ֔ה מִ֥י כָּמֹ֖כָה נֶאְדָּ֣ר בַּקֹּ֑דֶשׁ נוֹרָ֥א תְהִלֹּ֖ת עֹ֥שֵׂה פֶֽלֶא

Dr. Fauci has been the leading figure in determining the response of the U.S. government to the corona virus pandemic, and which methods, drugs and injections physicians are authorized to use for coronavirus patients.

The second one indicates a critical impact (for citizens of the State of Israel, and travelers to and from that country) by the current Israeli Prime Minister, Naftali Bennet. A spelling of his family name appears with a spacing of 4 letters in this same verse (outlined in red in Fig, 1):

מִֽי־כָמֹ֤כָה בָּֽאֵלִם֙ יְהֹוָ֔ה מִ֥י כָּמֹ֖כָה נֶאְדָּ֣ר בַּקֹּ֑דֶשׁ נוֹרָ֥א תְהִלֹּ֖ת עֹ֥שֵׂה פֶֽלֶא


Amazingly, on the date when the code (B) was discovered (July 14, 20’21), Rabbi Matityahu Galzerson posted this video description of the Torah codes he found that link the year תשפא with Moshiach, the Messiah:


From all of the above, what is the lesson for us?

The Jewish kabbalistic tradition teaches that the Five Books of Moses (the Hebrew Chumash) existed in G-d’s wisdom before He made the creation, and that He “looked into the Torah and made the creation”. In other words, the course of history was already pre-planned and coded by G-d within the Hebrew text of the Torah scroll. Therefore, the Chumash truly serves as the blueprint for creation. Hundreds of its codes for events, names and dates in history have been discovered by computer analysis. Some can be found by visual inspection, as in the five interconnected cases above.

But of what use is it to us to discover these codes for events in history, after those events have occurred? It should deepen our knowledge that the Chumash is Divine and could only have been composed by G-d Himself. Therefore, its commandments are true (the 613 Jewish Commandments and the Seven Noahide Commandments), and its explicit prophecies in the verses themselves are true.

These include the prophecies of the immanent coming of Moshiach (the Messiah) and the Final Redemption which are enumerated by Rambam in Laws of Kings, chapter 11. And in this Song at the Sea, the literal translation of “Az yashir Moshe” in the first verse (15:1) is, “Then Moses will sing …,” which the Sages of the Talmud identified as a prophecy of the future Resurrection of the Dead.
