The Year as a Reduced Fraction
(Please see the updates to yesterday's post if you haven't seen them already.)
Already at the beginning of 5775, I used a reduced fraction to explain the significance of the year 5775. I explained that 5775⁄6000 reduces to 77⁄80 and refers to the 77 75-year generations of the world. ע"ש
Along the same lines, we can use a reduced fraction to explain 5776. Let's see. 5776⁄6000 reduces to 361⁄375. The number 361 is the gematria of משיח בא [Mashiah is coming] and 375 is the gematria of דעא"ש [ISIS] as I explained earlier. Perhaps, if we explain that the numerator overpowers the denominator, the explanation is that in 5776, Mashiah's coming will overpower ISIS and everything it represents - the evil of the world.
