This Weeks Torah Portion - Parshas VaYaishev
In this weeks parsha Yehuda gives Tamar a collateral which the Medrash tells us are signs of the future redemption, so the way I see it is: the signature is Na Nach Nachma Nachman Me'Uman. "VihaPisilim" - and the strings, this is the aspect of the tzitzis which is the spirit of the Tzadik which is in his writings, VihaPisilim has the gimatriah (numerical value) of "Petek". And the staff - "Matte" is the aspect of the holy angel mentioned in the Petek, who is an aspect of Matta"t.
