Description
 
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. It develops a theory which elucidates how the  Torah  and  Chazal  use  gematria  to direct us toward a very specific type of idea. Through its many examples,  this work illustrates how  gematria  can help us uncover novel insights, while providing interesting and clearly formulated perspectives into many  mitzvos , themes, and stories in  Tanach.
