The First Altar, built by Adam after his expulsion from the Garden of Eden
The Post-Flood Altar, forged by Noah after surviving the Flood
The Binding Altar, made by Avraham for the Binding of Isaac
The Ladder to Heaven, recognized by Jacob in his dream
The Temples, the First and the Second, erected by the ancient kings
One place comes to mind, the eternal capital of the Jewish nation
What connects all the occurrences?
What's the source of their existence and strength?
What unifies them into a single message?
and our cultivation of a relationship with Him
a mystical science fusing numbers and the Torah
assigns the number "26" to His Holy Name
the crucible of Jewish knowledge and thought
describes Jerusalem as precious
in modern day, we call it "Gold"
G-d, who rests in Jerusalem of Gold
