The Patriarchs names have a.  common denominator to the numerical value (Gematria) of their names. I am referring to Yitzchak=8×26 Yaakov=7×26. Yosef=6×26.  יצחק  יעקב יוסף =21 x26.=546.
546 divided by 3 (to get an.average number)=182 = Yaakov  יעקב. Yaakov =7×26.  The number 8, A symbol for infinity, represented by Yitzchak. The first person born a Jew who out of all the Patriarchs never left the land of Israel. Yaakov on the other hand traveled the most. His name equals 7x the name of Hahems name (26).The number 7 represents Nature, 7 days a week, 7 seas, 7 colors (ROYGBIV) 7 basics in music, a human body is proportional to 7 x head, 7 openings for the 5 senses. The sense of touch is on the lips, not the hands.
The word Yaakov is a composite of י -עקב. Meaning the ability to download the seminal point the “Yud” to the most callous point, the heel (עקב). On the other hand the name Yisrael ישראל לי-ראש means My head. The two names of Yaakov and Yisrael represent the physical and the spiritual, the intellectual and the emotional These two factors must coexist in order to have meaningful and constructive results in our actions. The name Yisrael ישראל represents our founding Patriarchs and Matriarchs .   יצחק יעקב שרה רבקה רחל לאה.
The initial letters of their names Spell ישראל. Double males יצחק יעקב ,double females רבקה רחל- Equal representation for all.
If not for the Heel where would Head be able to go? Feet on the ground,head in the sky. Now you can download from an infinite source of inspirational information. Thus Creating facts on the ground. The metaphor in the vegetable world- Roots,chutes and finally fertile, tasty and nutritional fruits. Food for thought!!!!!!
