Welcome to the website that explains concepts behind Torah codes, has a Torah code tutorial, and discusses some of the most recent Torah code research.

What is a Torah code table?

A Torah code table is a special kind of Torah table.

A Torah table, is a rectangular table having rows and columns in which each entry is a letter from the text of the Torah, the Five Books of Moses. The successive letters in any row are successive letters from the text. The successive letters in any column are letters in the text obtained by skipping a fixed number of letters. The fixed skip is called the cylinder size. A Torah table can be constructed by spiraling the letters of the Torah text, without spaces or punctuation marks, around a cylinder of particular size and selecting a rectangular window to define the Torah table.

A Torah code table, (Torah code) or as they are popularly called a Bible code table, (Bible code) is a Torah table meeting two additional conditions:

In the table, historically and/or logically related key words can be found in horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, orientation patterns. The words so found in the table are called equidistant letter sequences. They are called equidistant letter sequences (ELSs for short) because their letters come from the text, not necessarily letter after letter of the text, but with the same skip from letter to successive letter of the ELS. Different ELSs in the same table can have different skips.

With respect to a population of control texts, called monkey texts, and with respect to an experimental protocol that specifies the details of the computer search process and the the compactness measure used for each sampled text of the control text population, the probability that a text from the control text population would have a table of equal or better compactness with ELSs of the same set of key words is sufficiently small. Simply, this means that the probability that a similar table would arise by chance is small.

Torah code of Torah code in Hebrew
This is a Torah code table with ELSs of the key words תורה, Torah, and צופן, Code. The cylinder size is 23. There are 6 rows and 2 columns. With expected number of ELSs set to 500, the probability that a text from the ELS random placement text population would produce as small an area a table as that produced by the Torah text is 34/1,000.
