The Whole Earth is Full of His Glory

Relaxing, meditative music played by Gutman on the lyre that he designed and handcrafted. The music is played by softly plucking one string with one finger at one time. Great bedtime music for small children.

There Is One

"This book will truly bring Jews close to the Torah"
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson,
The Lubavitcher Rebbe

This book is dedicated to Jews in two stages of life: the unlearned Jew who has yet to remember, may your soul be soon set on fire, may you awaken to your inheritance and enjoy the ever increasing joys of a Torah life, as it says; All her ways are pleasant and all her paths are peace: and to the scholar who has found the way around His Palace, but has somehow forgotten His Garden. May these writings in some way help to lighten the burden and may we all live to see the final redemption for which all souls hope. May His Holy Temple be speedily rebuilt and may all life know peace.

The Spice of Torah Gematria

This volume contains each word of the five Books of Moses listed in numerical order. The Hebrew word with vowels, its English translation, and where the word first appears in the Torah are all listed from the smallest Gematria (3) to the highest (1500) Gematria provides a method of converting words into numbers and/or numbers into words, thereby revealing relationships between words.

Gemataria as a Torah perspective is well defined and discussed in the many volumes written by our Rabbium (teachers). The purpose here is simply to present a tool with which this perspective may be applied.

See the sample pages.

Spice of Torah - Gematria 318 pages (Judaica Press 1985) is available at Judaica Press or at your local Jewish bookstore.

Sefer Gematriot

This volume contains each word of the entire Hebrew Bible (Tenach) listed in numerical order. The Hebrew word and where the word first appears in the Torah are all listed from the smallest Gematria (3) to the highest (1640).
