FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 1990

skeptic. So he tried numer-
ous tests to see whether
codes could be found in other
texts, and whether if, by
removing just one letter
from the Torah, the codes
would remain there.
But nothing worked. The
codes could be found only in
the Torah exactly as it is
written.
At that point Michaelson,
a secular Jew, "put on one of
these," Rabbi Mechanic
said, pointing to his kippah.
As remarkable as the
codes themselves is that
they were all written before
the fact, Rabbi Mechanic
said. Even those who insist
the Torah was written by
one or several men say it
was completed thousands of
years ago. Yet the codes
discovered describe events
that happened as recently as
1981, when Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat was
murdered.
Scholars now use compu-
ters to check for secret codes
in the Torah. To do this, they
pick a certain name, such as
Sadat, then ask the com-
puter to find where this ap-
pears in code, separated by
the minimum number of
letters.
For example, one might be
able to find the name of
Sadat between 22 letters, or
120, or even 900 letters. In
this sentence, it is separated
by only two letters: See And
DreAm Too. Scholars were

specifically searching for ex-
amples showing words
separated by the fewest
number of letters at equal
intervals.
The researchers did find
Sadat. And they came across
these words, all found at the
same place, and separated
by fewer numbers of letters
at equal intervals than in
any place in the Torah: pres-
ident, shot, gunfire, murder,
parade (Sadat was shot and
killed during a parade),
mutiny, the 8th of Tishrei
(the Hebrew date on which
he was murdered) and even
the name of the man who
organized the attack, Chalad
Islambuli.
Rabbi Mechanic said many
such examples exist in the
Torah — including the
names of 35 great rabbis,
found by the dates of their
deaths; details about the life
of one of the few kings
friendly to the Jews, Franz
Joseph of Austria; informa-
tion about diseases and their
cures; and numerous refer-
ences relating to Nazi Ger-
many.
The hidden codes about the
Nazis can be found in
Bereshit 44:26-48:8, which
speaks of another destruc-
tion: Noah and the flood.
Again, searching only for
words separated by the
fewest number of letters at
equal intervals, researchers
discovered these words and
phrases: Germany, the Nazi
