    136 x 3 – Acharei Mot

    408“With this shall Aaron come into the sanctuary” (Lev. 16:3). Zot, “this”, has the numerical value of 408.

    The g’matria experts note that each of tzom, “a fast”, kol, “a voice (of prayer)” and mamon, “money” (a gift) adds up to 136. 136 x 3 = 408.

    What one must bring to the service of God is self-discipline, prayer and offerings of one’s time, talents and means.
