Shlomo Rubashkin was prosectuted for 91 counts, and now found guilty of 86.
These numbers are highly significant. 91 is the gematria of the name HaShem plus Adon-y, the name we say when we pray and the name we read. Kabbalistically, this means the union of the attribute of strict justice and total mercy.
Mr. Rubashkin was convicted of 86 counts. 86 is the gematria of the name Elokim, another name for strict justice that is related to Adon-y. (this is the secret of Binah and Malcut, the Mother and the Daughter).
In a sense, the hints we see in “real life” indicate that Mr. Rubashkin is receiving highly distilled strict judgments, from Elohkim.
This should arouse all of us to tshuva, because HaShem is not playing around here. We need to stay on the straight and narrow and understand that we cannot play around with Esau.
This is Esau’s land, and we are guests in it.
(Esau also believes our holy land is his land too, or at least Yishmael’s, but as least with America Esau has an argument.)
