The whole Torah scroll is written in 248 columns. Every column starts with a word that begins with the letter "ו" except for six special columns. The first letters are "ביהשמו", The "ב" of "בראשית"is the first, there are four more in between and the last of the six is "ו". There is a great significance to the location of each of them but I want to focus on the last letter "ו" that completes the set.
The six letters known as "ביה־שמו" , translated to in "יה" , his name. "יה" is naturally related to the first two letters of the Tetragramaton and the top three sefirot of Keter, Chokmah and Binah. "שמו", "his name" relates to the future name of G-d with the final revelation of the Light with Mashiach, as it is prophesized "ביום־ההוא־יהיה־יקוק־אחד־ושמו־אחד", "on that day G-d and his name will be one".The deeper explanation of this verse will be at another time.
The special letter ו appears on the top of the column in (Deuteronomy 31:28)
"וְאָעִידָה בָּם, אֶת-הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת-הָאָרֶץ"
You may ask; if there are 242 "ו" on the top of the columns then why is this one special. The answer is in its position. Moshe is about to leave the world and he is completing the Torah (31:30), which is Zeir Anpin, and is represented by the Letter "ו" of the Tetragramaton. The column that this Vav appears is on top of a unique column. There are three parts to this column. Few lines at the top and two narrow columns of parashat Ha\’azinu (I\’ll explain about this in Ha\’azinu).
The first letter of the Torah , "ב" of Bereshit,
" וְאָעִידָה בָּם, " and " בָּם ", relates to the 42 letters at the beginning of Genesis and it created the universe. It is know as the name of G-d of 42 letters.
" אֶת-הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת-הָאָרֶץ " , relates to the first action of creation, which formed heaven and earth. This is also related to (30:19) where we see the same message with the final promise to have full control over the physical realm as promised to our fathers, Avraham Yizaac and Ya\’Akov. Notice in this verse that G-d specifys the name of our fathers to us (like we do not know!).
Closing the circle is revealing Mashiach. The Vav completes the set of six letters and makes few amazing combinations. First is that the numerical value is "המשיח", "the Mashiach" and "משה־חי", "Moshe is alive". This is the beginning of the Shabbat of creation.
In Genesis we read about the "spirit of G-d is hovering over the water". Kabbalah teaches us that the Torah and the idea of the end and Mashiach were there before creation. The Torah is the water that sustains the life. The spirit of Mashiach hovering over the Torah, is the six letters. They connect all parts of the Torah into one, the spirit of Mashiach.
