“With thirty-two separate paths of wisdom the Almighty engraved and created His world.”
— Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Formation, 1:1)
How could thirty-one be imperfect? One of HaShem’s names is Keil — alef and a lamed. We see in this name thirty-one by using Gematria.
My daring foray into Torah chiddushim is like this:
“HaShem is One, and His name is One.”
The Divine name Keil is “His name,” although only one of them. Even so, adding a single name, thirty-one becomes thirty-two.
