      There is a great deal of gematria in the texts of the Tanakh. There is more than any one scholar could investigate in a lifetime of study. According to biblical language, 44 represents the “persons” chosen. As the sons of Levi, Judah, and Benjamin (a symbolic representation of the True Chosen), 44 represents the doubled number. Here’s more on jewish gematria (L.iv.eli.ne.S.swxzu@hu.feng.ku.angn.I.Ub.i…u.k37@cgi.members.interq.or.jp) stop by the site. Jesus’ appearances in the bible have a lot to do with the number 44, specifically his crucifixion. Anyone who has written a check on the occasion of a Jewish simcha using a multiple of $18 knows that the number is synonymous with “mazal tov! ” The number’s celebratory meaning has even been confirmed in present-day architecture, as is shown by Daniel Libeskind’s Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, whose plan is based on the upbeat slogan, “To Life! ” (“l’chaim!”), and features a hall graced with 36 windows (or “double chai”). There are 40 days between the first day of Elul, when we begin to blow the Shofar to prepare for Rosh Hashana, until Yom Kippur, the end of the annual teshuva (repentance) period. These 40 days are the most auspicious time for personal growth and renewal. Numerous contemporary Jewish books have been published about gematria as well as assisting the reader to find his own gematria equivalencies.
