‘HaMakor’ means ‘The Source’. We come from the Source of all that is and pass on what we received. The Eternal One is being compared with a Source of living water (Yirm. 2:23, 17:13). The psalmist says: ‘… because with You is the Source of life …’ (Teh. 36:10).
The values of the letters of makor add up to 346. Tradition says that words with the same number value have something in common. Other words with a value of 346 are tzinoor, channel, and ratzon, will, favour, desire. May we be a pure channel for the divine energy, and may our work serve the Will of the Holy One.
