The Torah’s primary name for God is yhvh (yud-hei-vov-hei), which is usually rendered in English as Yahweh, Jehovah, or the “Lord.”  But the Hebrew letter hei (“h”), which is the last letter of the name yhvh (Yahweh), is drawn using the letters dalet (“d”) and yud (“y”), compressing those letters together into a single letter, the yud thereby becoming the left leg of the hei:

hei

Therefore, the Hebrew letter hei (“h”) can be read as dalet-yud (“dy”), and the name yahweh can be read as yehewdy (i.e., Yehudi), which means “Jew” or “Judean.”

The Torah itself confirms this great secret when Moses instructs the Israelites: “[If you are righteous,] all the peoples of the earth will see that the name yhvh is proclaimed on you, and they will revere you.” (Deuteronomy 28:10, italics added; see also Numbers 6:27; Isaiah 43:7; Jeremiah 14:9; 2 Chronicles 7:14.) Moreover, God’s hidden name yehudi (i.e., yhvh) actually refers to the Egyptian god djyehudi (a/k/a Thoth, the author of the Egyptian Book of the Dead). Hebrew scripture confirms this secret, too. Through the mouth of the prophet Hosea, yhvh says: “I am yhvh, your god from the land of Egypt . . . .” (Hosea 13:4, italics added; see also Hosea 12:10.)

The great scholars of Hebrew scripture tell us that the Torah is not to be read merely for its superficial meaning. Rather, the Torah is “like apples of gold in settings of silver” (Proverbs 25:11), concealing treasures among its diverse pen strokes.

For if so, we could compose a Torah right now with ordinary words, and more laudable than all of them [in the existing Torah]! . . . Concerning Torah, one should look only at what is beneath the garment. So all these words and all these stories are garments.” (Zohar 3:152a)

Lovers of the Torah who want to deepen their understanding are invited to read Torah Nondualism: Diversity, Conflict, and Synthesis in the Pentateuch.
