The Arch Angel Gabriel stuck his spear in the sea and created Italy.

Talmud Bavli

Masechet Megilah 

Came down the Angel Gabriel and stuck a spear in the sea. Over time sand and ashes drifted upon it, till it became a big island, and there was built Greece’s Italy.


could it be that the Angel Gabriel was mistaken or worshipped as Poseidon aka Neptune?

והנה, בהיות הצדיק חי על פני האדמה, היו שלש מדות אלו בתוך כלי ולבוש שלהם

Now, while the tzaddik was alive on earth, these three attributes were contained in their vessel and garment

בבחינת מקום גשמי, שהיא בחינת נפש הקשורה בגופו

a) Love from Pleasure

b) Love from Fear


Iggeret HaKodesh, beginning of Epistle 18


הנה ב׳ מיני אהבות הן

There are two kinds of love, each of which subdivides further.

האחת: אהבה בתענוגים

The first is ahavah betaanugim,

דהיינו, שמתענג על ה׳ עונג נפלא

meaning that one delights wondrously in G‑d,

בשמחה רבה ועצומה, שמחת הנפש וכלותה, בטעמה כי טוב ה׳

with a great and immense joy, the joy of the soul and its yearning as it tastes that G‑d is good

ונעים נעימות עריבות עד להפליא

(...when you read & listen to this, always keep in mind that G-D continueously speaks to us through information input, coming through your eyes:::::situations, text, speach, history, and reality::::::now, before your time, and always:::::::literally between your eyes, in front of your face...because It is as close to You as You Yourself...it is the collective Us as well as the Individual You...and you, me, us, are all It, and It is just Infinite Permutations of a Single One.)

Hanukkah 5776

Hanukkah in Hebrew is spelled: חנוכה

Het = ח = 8

נ = Nun = נרות = stands for the word Nerot = candles in Hebrew

ו = Vav = veh = "And" alludes to the Shamash: ו-שמש

8 Nerot Ve-Shamash - all things additional in Hebrew start with the Veh---(and)---...of the Vav.

The Vav stands tall, as a single line, (like a candle) in the middle of the Hebrew word for Hanukkah:  חנ-ו-כה

& Nun + Vav = 56 in gematria which equals 7 original Menorah candles x 8 miraculous nights = 56

כה = kaf + hey = 25 in gematria, the hebrew date for Hanukkah
