The ancient art of Gematria, where numbers correspond to Hebrew letters, conveys a mystical meaning to the inscription on this amulet. The numerical equivalent of the letters in this square is 15 - horizontally, vertically and diagonally. The number '15', as well as the central letter "Heh", symbolize the Divine Name. Talmudic sages believed that gematriot were transmitted to Moses with the Oral Law.
