This chart presents a number of ideas from Torah in a fashion that shows a relationship between them based on the Four-letter Name of G-d. There are actually five parts to this Name when the top part of the first letter (called the “cusp” or “apex” of the Yod) is included. This is one of the two major ‘templates’ in the Tanakh, the other being the 10 Sefirot. The information presented here is from traditional Jewish sources. We are continually adding to this chart.
