This is an update to three different articles that I wrote:

The first article I posted was written about 5 years ago.

The second article I posted I wrote two years ago.

And the third article I posted was on Facebook two days ago.

They are all connected to the number 137 and Kabbalist Rav Berg.

It’s worth the time to read all three….if you love miracle stories!

Here we go:



Not too long ago, I was learning with Kabbalist Rav Berg at his home. We discussed the most important number in all of physics.

That number is 137.

137 is the biggest mystery and most important number  in all of science. Without question.

137 refers to electrons and the odds of an electron absorbing a single photon. Or in simple Kabbalah language, it’s about Vessel and Light, or the physical body of man and his ability to ignite the Light from his soul and arouse the Light in the extraordinary  99% reality so that it shines in our plain, ordinary world.

Please do not worry if you don’t understand the science and physics associated with the number 137 (also known as the fine structure constant). That’s not what is important in this article. And by the way, most physicists don’t understand it either. But they do admit and know that it’s the most important number in the universe.You can google it later if you want to know more about how it works in physics and why it’s so important.

In this article, I will offer up the simple, bottom line connection to this mysterious number, a number that has the greatest physicists in history scratching their collective heads.

For instance, one of the important physicists of the 20th century Richard Feynman wrote the following about the number 137:

“It has been a mystery ever since it was discovered more than fifty years ago, and all good theoretical physicists put this number up on their wall and worry about it. It’s one of the greatest damn mysteries of physics: a magic number that comes to us with no understanding by man. You might say the ‘hand of God’ wrote that number, and ‘we don’t know how He pushed his pencil.”

Another great 20th century scientist, Wolfgang Pauli was obsessed about 137. Pauli and other physicists were convinced that 137 was a mystical number with a secret meaning beyond physics. According to the science book Deciphering the Cosmic Number, by Arthur Miller:

“Pauli once said that if the Lord allowed him to ask anything he wanted, his first question would be “Why 1/137?”

In this same book, it reveals the following letter that Wolfgang Pauli wrote to his sister Hertha:

“I do believe that the natural sciences will…bring forth a counter pole in their adherents, which connects with the old mystic elements”

Guess what the great physicist and genius Wolfgang Pauli discovered: He was shocked to learn that the numerical value of KABBALAH was 137! Pauli studied Kabbalah in the hopes of finding a solution. His problem was that he did not study with a Kabbalist. He studied with a scholar and was thus unable to crack the code.

So now we know that the most important number in physics, which deals with photons and electrons, is the same numerical value as the word Kabbalah, which deals with Light and Vessels.

Wolfgang Pauli also died in Room 137 of the Rotkreuz hospital in Zürich, Switzerland.

Anyway,when I was learning with the Rav, the Rav acknowledged that there was a profound message behind that fact that the one magic number of physics is the exact same numerical value as the word Kabbalah.

First we learned that the angel Yofiel, known as the “Angel Prince of Torah” as mentioned in the Zohar, has the same numerical value of 137! Guess what this particular angel taught Moses?

The angel called Yofiel taught Moses the mysteries of Kabbalah! Yet another connection between 137 and Kabbalah!


The number 137 comes up quite often in the Torah. It is the most common age for the biblical characters.

Abraham is 137 years old when he binds his son Isaac in the Torah Portion of Vayeira. When you understand Kabbalah, you realize this relates directly to the idea of an “electron absorbing a photon” or desire connecting to Light. We must bind our ego (Isaac), the negative desire in order to connect to the hidden, concealed realm of Light (Abraham). That’s what the story of Abraham binding his son Isaac is all about.

Moses’ father lived to 137, according to the Torah.

Ishmael lived to 137, according to the Torah.

Levi lived to 137, according to the Torah. Levi is the seed of the Tribe of Levi. 

What is also amazing is that the phrase “The Cohen & the Levites” has the numerical value of 137.

Noah (1) had 3 sons (3) and 70 (7) descendants. There’s that wily 137 again!

Adam (1) led to 3 Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (3) which led to 70 family members (7). 137!

There are 304,805 letters in the Torah.

Look what happens if you reverse the numbers in pairs: 50+84+03=137.

Moses’ Tabernacle, the earthly dwelling place of God was 13.7 meters long.


Then the Rav explained that 137 is the 33rd prime number. Why 33? The Rav said “the number 33 lives on and on and on.” Sure enough, 33 is the day Rav Shimon left this world, the holiday known as  Lag B’omer. This is the one day when all the Light of Zohar and Kabbalah are revealed into the physical world, or the electron absorbs the photon.

The 33rd day of Omer is the day Rabbi Akiva taught Rav Shimon the Kabbalah.

The 33rd day of the Omer is also the day when Rav Shimon left the cave after 13 years of learning.

The Kabbalists say the day Rav Shimon left the cave is equal to the full revelation of Light on Mount Sinai with Moses. So 137 — by way of 33 — also connects to Kabbalah in a profound way. Our purpose in this world is to unite the physical world (electron) with the spiritual world of Light (photon) and that is what Kabbalah (137) teaches us to do.

33 is the highest degree in Scottish Rite Freemasonry, which is based solely on Kabbalah.

33 is the age that Kabbalist Yehoshua ben Yoseph (Jesus) left this world.

137 also plays a role cosmically. Read this…

NASA’s Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) has taken the best measurement of the age of the Universe to date.”…scientists now have the best estimate yet on the age of the Universe: 13.7 billion years”

(there it is again 137)

I asked the Rav, what this bizarre connection between 137 and Kabbalah is trying to tell us. The Rav then said: “137 is all about making a connection between an unseen force and a seen force.”

The seen force is our desire, the realm of the physical world which we call the 1 percent reality. The unseen realm is the source of wisdom and happiness. The hidden 99% reality.

RAV 137

The Rav then said the following:

“If you add the individual numbers of 137 together you get eleven. A very powerful number in the Zohar. In warfare, using the weapons known by the Hebrew word Korbanot (or sacrifices) the other side (evil) brought ten items and the Israelites brought eleven. The other side (evil) knew ten was part of this physical reality, to control it. But the Israelites knew ten was not ultimate but rather eleven was. Eleven is part of the eleven spices spoke of in the Torah and Zohar. And all the activities of the morning connection (morning prayers) add up to eleven. Eleven is a good number. Two times eleven is 22, the number of letters in aleph bet. Three times 11 is 33, Rabbi Shimon and Lag B’Omer.”

The Rav stopped talking for a few minutes on this subject. Then, after a short while, the Rav returned to it.

“Why is eleven chosen as good number?” the Rav asked. “Ten (sephirot) is limiting because even in the realm of the ein sof (Endless World, the realm above our physical world) we are not dealing with the ultimate Light. So eleven is higher than ten”

I asked the Rav to explain why the Endless World (Ein Sof) was not the ultimate.

The Rav  said the following:

“Eleven is higher than ten. In the Endless World there is Light and Vessel. Which means there is still a vessel. But then there is the unknowable Source of the Light, the source behind the emanation of the Endless World, which the Zohar will not deal with. Kabbalah only deals with the Light that shines outward, not the source of the Light.The Source is beyond human intellect and can never be grasped so it is higher.”

The Rav then summarized the whole 137-Kabbalah concept:

“The whole process of life is about one thing—desire — the desire to receive the Light, which is why they call this Kabbalah — Kabbalah means to receive. The engine behind all activity on earth,all human action is desire, a craving for Light. There is war, conflict and human misery only because we have not fulfilled that one desire. That is the only reason.”

I asked Rav why science is using all these terms like electrons, quarks, leptons.

The Rav said:

“I used to teach this long ago in the basic course. I think we took it out. In electricity, there is 110 volts and  there is 220 volts. But both use the same force of electricity. It is the capacity of the equipment that you plug into the electrical force that determines if its 110 or 220. But the electrical force is always the same. There is only desire to receive consciousness. The different particles are just different vessels with different capacities, but its all one singular force of consciousness. How that one force is used and received is what makes the difference and accounts for all the diversity. Our desire to receive can no longer continue to operate as it has in the past (selfish). We must change and start receiving for the sake of benefiting others.”


The number 137 in physics corresponds to the interaction between an electron and a photon or the probability of an electron absorbing a photon. In the language of Kabbalah, it means the interaction between the Vessel and the Light or how a Vessel can absorb/receive the Light. We know that we are distanced and disconnected from the Light when we are opposite in nature because in the realm of consciousness or spirituality, opposites repel. The only way for our physical world (electron) to absorb (receive) the Light is to imitate the Light, behave like the Light, and that stops repulsion. In turn, it causes attraction.

The missing puzzle piece for physics is consciousness.

Only by way of consciousness can we absorb and connect to the Light in a lasting and permanent way.


When we first admit and recognize that our ego is a distinct and separate force of consciousness (often that takes lifetimes), and then we strive to remove it, so that we share, instead of only receive, we then unite with the Light. In other words, the Light is the Cause of Happiness. Therefore, when we become the cause of someone else’s happiness, we are identical to the Light.

What’s the take away lesson here?

Simple — but not easy: Instead of making our own dreams come true (which disconnects us because are receiving, the direct opposite of the sharing Light) we need to start making other people’s dreams come true. But don’t worry about dedicating your time and talents making other people’s dreams come true. You won’t have to worry because the rest of the world will be striving to make all of your dreams come true.

That is the long-held secret.

That’s the formula for immortality and paradise.

When we are all working to make each other’s dreams come true, using our gifts and talents for the sole purpose of causing happiness in others, all ten dimensions of the ten sephirot align and connect. Suddenly, the Endless World and the Physical world unite as one.

The 1 realm of the Light connects to the 3 upper Sephirot, which connect with the lower 7 Sephirot and suddenly Light flows.

1 connects to 3 which connects to the 7.


Happiness manifests.

137 creates one unified whole. Oneness between people creates oneness between the 1, the 3 and the 7.

Now throw away all the details and physics and just realize when you love your neighbor, you change your life and this world. But also know that you can only love your neighbor when you remove the one force that prevents you from loving unconditionally — the human ego.

So instead of chasing after love, chasing after happiness, and chasing after joy, start chasing after your own ego and selfish traits, because once your remove all that, love, happiness and joy are the automatic result.



And the ultimate secret for changing everything.




Amazing connection and sign from the Rav tonight. We went to the north with Yehuda B, friends, and family to see Yochai, father of Rabbi Shimon. Then we went to Rabbi Shimon and some other Kabbalists. Then we went to the Rav. I asked the Rav for a sign to show he was there with us as I laid my head on his tomb.

The security guard came over to us a minute later.

He said the Rav is on the security TV monitor. We all went to look and there was the Rav! I took a picture.

Look at top left screen, right side of frame. It’s just like the Rav picture at Rosh Hashanah two years ago! 

I superimposed an actual picture of the Rav over the original, untouched photo. See all three below:


Anyway, I then go directly back to the Rav’s tomb and check my phone and the clock reads 1:37am.

This is epic.

I cannot go into details but please read my article on 137 on this blog. Read about 137 in Rav’s Nano book. I wore 137 on all my hats when I lectured at NASA on two separate occasions about science and Kabbalah.

When I arrived at the Rav’s tomb two nights ago after traveling 20 straight hours, when we walked into the cave, I opened my phone and the time was 3:17am!

I said to my wife and kids, “Look, 137 again– same digits!” And now, tonight, there it was only seconds after seeing the Rav appear on the security monitor in the cave. Except now it was 1:37 exactly.

The next morning we are praying at the Rav’s tomb. I completely forgot about what happened with 137. At the end of prayers for some reason I remembered it again and I said to myself — Rav, if this connection is really you, let me see the number again. I checked my phone. I did a screen capture of my iPhone. This is what I saw:



There are lots more 137 connections I have personally with the Rav. It’s the magic number of physics and this number will soon help unify physics and Kabbalah. By the way, the great Kabbalist, The Genius of Vilna, (Vilna Gaon) says that unifying science and Kabbalah is the key to bringing forth the final redemption and Messiah!

Anyway, the connection was amazing tonight and this picture is absolutely awesome.






So this morning i get back from a sunday morning jog and i go to my computer. And for some reason, for the first time in a few years, i decide to search for the writer of the book who wrote about the number 137 and the great Physicist Wolfgang Pauli who studied Kabbalah because Kabbalah is the numerical value of 137.

I wanted to ask the author of the book some questions for a brand new project i am working on. Again, this is the first time in probably in 5 years that i have researched 137.

So, i find the author’s website. Then i begin writing up an email to him about 137. As i am writing the email i get a text on my phone saying i have a message on facebook from a friend.

I read the first line of the text on my phone my friend’s message says that he is in Nashville handing out Zohars for the Zohar project.

I freak out. Why?

Because i KNOW — ahead of time — that there is going to be a connection to 137 even before i go to facebook and open the full message.

So now I go to my facebook page and here is the message below that is on my screen, right beside the email I am writing to the author of the book about the magic of 137 and it’s connection to Wolfgang Pauli, who died in the hospital room 137!

And then my friend tells me that the Rav and the angels saved him.


I asked him what he was talking about.

He then told me that he and two friends after handing out Zohars were driving on the highway. They were stopped on the highway when suddenly another car driving full speed smashed into them full on!

Their car was totaled.

But they were unharmed!

He was freaked.

The accident was so bad, they shut down the highway, the police, firetrucks and paramedics came. And so he and his friends started handing out Zohars to the police and paramedics and fire fighters.

Sometimes, there are certain fates we cannot avoid because of karmic reasons. But having the Zohar in our life allows us to go through a certain destiny without having to experience the full pain and chaos and consequences. My friend’s life was saved that day and I told him that the reason he texted me about the number 137 after his accident, just as I was writing the author of the book who wrote about the magic of 137, is because now the Rav was saying “hello” to my friend!

It was confirmation of what he originally believed: and that is that the Rav and angels had saved him from a potentially unspeakable accident.

As the Rav said about 137 — It’s all about making a connection between a seen and unseen force. My friend connected to the Tree of Life in that moment so that he would not have to experience the full impact of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. He united the unseen 99% reality of perfection with the observable 1% world of chaos.

This is the power of the Zohar.

And make no mistake, this is the raw power of the Rav. For the Rav, and Rabbi Shimon, and the Zohar, and the one lineage of Kabbalists are all the expression of the one Force that radiates from the Zohar — the Tree of Life, the 99% reality of pure protection, happiness and paradise.

When we reach a critical mass of people who can connect to this realm through the Zohar, paradise will be unleashed across planet earth and the unseen force of the 99% will now be seen and experienced by all humankind, forevermore.

    Billy…would you come for a lecture to Kabbalah Centre London?That would be great!

  2. Leah K. says:

    Hi Billy: Whenever I begin to fall off the wagon of the wisdom of Kabbalah and the power of the Zohar something comes along to lift me back up. This time it is you and this amazing and inspiring post. Thank you! !!! !!!!!!!

  3. Kara says:

    wow.. mind blown! I was in that room in Nashville, never saw that number ( that is a pretty strange max occupancy number) and never knew the connection. I even saw the picture on what’s app and wondered the significance. Amazing!

  4. Hi Billy,
    I read a lot of your commentary on the Zohar and the amazing mathematical computations that are embedded, well are the very foundations of the Zohar. I too, am beside myself with awe and excitement!
    Billy, I would like to reply to your comment that only with the Zohar and scanning will we be able to actually see the Light come to this plain of existence. I agree, BUT I believe there what will cause this super nova of consciousness is TWO things. One for one to have such a desire for the things money can’t buy that he turns his or her life over to the Ruach HaKodesh. Then with that turning, or teshuva, combined with the scanning of the ancient Hebrew that we will have LIGHT! Thanks. Blessings and Light to you.

    I have taken the number 137 and divided it by 2020 then multiplied the sum by numerous birth years. Then divided the sum in half. I almost always come up with a persons mortal death date. I believe this number to be a half life. Or expected year of mortal or material death. Or ones ascension possibly. I wonder if this corresponds to God telling Adam that he will die at a certain age. If so. I may know my own date of death in this material plain. On average though. The numbers come up between 66 and 68.
