So today is 6/13.
Yes, check your calendar.
It only comes once a year.
613 is the mystical and holy number of commandments in the Torah.
For more than 2 years (this is not a short-term phenomenon), my family and even some friends have been seeing an inexplicable number of 613 everywhere.
Here is one from a stock I follow from the other week: Twitter was up exactly 6.13%...and I don't follow that many stocks.
Just yesterday, another stock (that been doing terribly...it's a startup!) is down an enormous 61.3% since I started following it.
And yet another major stock--of the largest company in Israel and the largest generic pharmaceutical company in the world--Teva--is down 16.03 year-to-date.
Nearly every day, we see an endless barrage of license plates, roads, train and plane schedules and physical or URL addresses, get purchase receipts or invoice totals, see number of posts, views, likes, or emails, and even the other day almost booked a hotel with the address....that's right and only 613!
I am a rational person...maybe almost to the extreme, and what I initially laughed off as a lark or someone's OCD thing, is beyond any reasonable explanation that I can fathom at this point.
I am left with faith that there is truly some message being sent from the One Above...the question is what is the meaning of the message?
I continue to hope and pray that the message is one of blessings and redemption for mankind...I hope you will join me in this prayer. ;-)
