2448 as 5727

I'd like to expand on the last post (2503 Parallels).

(Keep in mind that we are talking about years here according to our count, where Adam HaRishon is born in year 2, Avraham Avinu was born in 1949, Yetziat Mitzraim in 2449, etc).

If we continue on the last post, we have a couple of ideas.

  • After 2503 years, originally, we should have been able to go higher and higher along with the commencing of the Shmitah count. In essence, 2504 is a Geulah that wasn't.
  • 5782 is the last year of an alternative 2503 years, with 5783 replacing the year 2504.

The last post looked at the period from the entrance of Am Yisrael to Eretz Yisrael up to the year 2504. But let's look back a bit further.

If we check what year, then, correlates to Yetziat Mitzraim, we get 5728, the year after the Six-Day War. This is more fitting than it seems at first glance. Remember that the Geulah from Mitzraim was in Chipazon. All at once, unlike in our time. The Geulah would only have been in 5728 if we had merited it at that time, otherwise it would be in stages.

As we learn in Shemot 2:23-2:25 and 3:16, the Pekidah in Mitzraim took place before Moshe even returned to Mitzraim. Perhaps this is why Moshe is mentioned in the Zohar Chadash Maamar which refers to the year 5727, he is related to the early Pekidah. Per the commentators, Moshe's encounter with the burning bush was Pesach of 2448.

Anyway, overall we can see that 5768-5769 is a sort of transfer year, the transfer from Moshe to Yehoshua bin-Nun, who brings Am Yisrael in to Eretz Yisrael.

I have updated the spreadsheet from the last post to reflect this in further detail. Check here.


  1. I think you are right: both the 14=2*7 years and the 41 years fit. Yishar Koach.

  2. ברוך תהיה

    Perhaps the inyan of Chesed on Motzaei Shevi'it is shayach to Keter?

  3. You mean: Chesed at 50?

  4. Not what I meant (in that I don't understand what you're suggesting). I mean 5769, 5776, 5783.

  5. To that I would say yes. I thought you wanted to add more year, becasue of 5777.

  6. No, I still do not feel that I understand well the meaning of 5777, aside from the Gematria of השיבה שפטינו being 777.

  7. Very interesting - works nicely לשיטתך.

  8. Yaak, thanks. That is a principle idea: If it works with the past, it works with the future.
