Palm Reading

In a cultivated acre of 50 palms, dosage 1 is male and 49 are female. Sounds like the 50 days of counting the Omer.

In the Torah, dosage the lulav (palm frond) is called the palm (of the hand) of the palm (tree). In English they are the same word.

Holding a lulav is a sign of victory (in many cultures), salve either in war or in court. Its palm (hand) is closed.

Open palms (hands) of palms (fronds) are used to cover the sukah. An open palm is loving-kindness, a closed palm is might.

Palm reading is an ancient art described in the Zohar. Your “palm full of nachas (satisfaction)” is a photo of your soul-mate and offspring.

Palm trees (male and female) symbolize marriage and fertility. Under strong winds they bend but don’t break. Their roots are as tall as them.

There are date palms and coconut palms. Choose what type of marriage you desire.

In Hebrew, the 10th letter of the alphabet, yud, means “hand” and the 11th letter, kaf, means “palm”

Deborah, the prophetess and judge of Israel sat under a date palm to judge the people. She sang the song of victory.

Deborah the prophetess = Miriam, Moses’ sister, also a prophetess, who also sang a song of victory.

After Miriam’s song and dance with the women, the people came to an oasis with 70 palm trees.

Before coming to the oasis, Eilim, the people thirsted 3 days in the desert and Moses transformed bitter waters to sweet.

In Eilim there were 12 fountains of water and 70 palm trees, symbolic of the 12 tribes of Israel and 70 elders.

A palm tree thus represents an elder who teaches the people Torah from his life’s experience.

The 70 elders are called “the eyes of the congregation.” A fountain of water is literally “an eye.”

The difference between 12 general eyes (fountains) and 70 particular eyes (palms) is 58, “favor” (chen) in he eyes of God and man.
