Da un po’ di tempo mi sveglio, mi vesto, ecc… vedo che ora è “7.36”..ok.
Monto in macchina, guido, vedo l’orario e vedo “8.36”…oggi è capitata la stessa cosa.
Allora mi son detto “Cosa avrà mai di speciale il numero 36?”:
Jewish tradition holds that the number 36 has had special significance since the beginning of time: According to the Midrash, the light created by God on the first day of creation shone for exactly 36 hours; it was replaced by the light of the Sun that was created on the Fourth Day.
The Torah commands 36 times to love, respect and protect the stranger.
Furthermore, in every generation there are 36 righteous people (the “Lamed Vav Tzadikim”) in whose merit the world continues to exist.
In the modern celebration of Hannukah, 36 candles are kindled in the menorah over the 8 days of that holiday (not including the shamash candle).
In one Māori legend, concerning the creation of mankind by the god Tāne, 36 gods took active part in assembling the various parts of the first human before Tāne breathed life into her.
