May 17, 2011 in Lifestyle (E)

[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Davka Corporation is pleased to announce the release of iGematria 2.0 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. iGematria calculates the numerical value ('Gematria', in Hebrew) of any Hebrew word or phrase, and finds Hebrew verses and words from the Torah that match the numerical value of the word entered. The mathematical calculations are based on an ancient system known as 'Gematria', which assigns a numerical value to Hebrew letters, words and phrases, and which, on that basis, provides insights into the connection between words and their ideas.

iGematria is a useful tool that can lend spirit and spice to speeches at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, and other festive occasions. Using the program, it is easy to find Hebrew words from the Torah and even entire verses that match the numerical value of the Hebrew name of the celebrants.

iGematria includes nine different Gematria calculation methods. In addition to calculating values based on words entered, users can also enter any number, and the program will locate words in the Torah that match the number entered. Identical words that match are grouped together in the listings, and word matches that are found in the weekly Torah reading are highlighted in blue.

iGematria is an enjoyable and entertaining tool for analyzing Hebrew words and their numerical values.
