THE TETRAGRAMMATON

The term Tetragrammaton refers to the great, ineffable four-letter Name of G‑d. Its primary meaning is Eternal Existence. A very important secondary meaning (appearing in the Code of Jewish Law) is "He was, He is, He will be." It is often translated as The Creator.

The letters that comprise the Name are the letters of the Hebrew root word for "Being". These letters are:Yud-Hei-Vav-Hei.

When a scribe draws the letter Yud, he begins with a dot in the place that will be the top of the letter. This dot is considered comparable to the Crown of the letter, to the sefira of Keter. In this way the four-letter Name can be represented with five aspects.

Shabtai Teicher, a descendant of the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Rebbe Reshab, was born in Brooklyn in 1946 and settled in Jerusalem in 1970. He studied for over 7 years with one of the outstanding and renowned kabbalists of our generation, Rabbi Mordechai Attieh, and also studied deeply in various other fields of Jewish scholarship. He was a specialist in Lurianic Kabbala, edited and annotated the first eleven chapters of our English rendition of "Shaar HaGilgulim," and completed his manuscripts for "Zohar: Old Man in the Sea," in both Hebrew and English, shortly before his unfortunate passing in November 2009.
