Torah Portion of RiAy
In this weeks Parsha the Torah commands two times (Deuteronomy 15:8, 15:11) Pusoach Tiftach Es Yudcha - Open your hands (to give charity). The Torah spell the word Pusoach with only three letters, thus providing an inclusive value of the three letters to the numerical value of the word = 491 - Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman, the beginning of all charity. Also the acronym of this commandment has the gimatria (numerical value) of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman. It is also noteworthy that this commandment is mentioned twice, and each time the Torah repeats the word Pusoach, thus the word in mentioned 4 times, an allusion to the song which is single, double, triple, quadruple - Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman.
