Heart Jewelry Judaica

There is a beautiful teaching that embodies the cyclic nature of Hebrew bible (Torah) learning and the rhythms of your heart. If we depict the letters of the Torah in a circle, the first letter Bet ( ב) and the last letter Lamed (ל) are next to each other and form the Hebrew word for heart ( לב ) Lev. In Hebrew, the word Lev, heart, has a numerical value of 32 [(Lamed‑ 30  ל) + (Bet‑ 2 ב )]. 32 represents in Kabbalah the 32 mystical paths of wisdom (or states of consciousness). Further, these paths relate to the 32 times G‑d’s name appears in the first chapter of Genesis. 32 is directly special to you because the oxygen you use for your heart to beat in a cycle has a molecular weight of 32.
