A kabbalistic system for discovering the hidden meaning of letters, words, and sentences, using numbers and letters of the alphabet.
The gematric system is based on the fact that the letters of the Hebrew alphabet have been accorded numerical equivalents, in which the numerical value of letters in words are added together to give specific values.
Words of similar numerical values are regarded as having correspondences or analogies in accordance with a complex mystical system, which is used to determine the precise meaning and significance of the scriptures, or of a sacred building or holy object.
