Pizza spiking the world with Nanach


Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman, the song of redemption, which Rabbi Nachman of Breslov revealed in the holy Petek sent to his prized student R' Yisroel Dov Odesser in 1922. Comprised of the name NaChMaN, spelled out in increments, 1 plus 2 plus 3 plus 4 - One letter: נ - Na, two letters - נח - NaCh, three letters - נחמ - NaChMa, four letters - נחמן - NaChMaN. MeUman - from Uman (Ukraine).

In the Petek (note) Rabbi Nachman inserted in round brackets the name of the angel PTzPTzYH.

This modern day revelation coincides with the modern dish: pizza!

Pizza - which is spelled out in the holy name of the angel mentioned above (usual serving of two slices...), has the attributes of Single ("simple"), double, triple, quadruple.

Pizza is round -- this is the aspect of single-simple.
Pizza is two layers - the dough and the cheese.
Pizza is cut into triangular slices.
Pizza is packaged in a square box (even though in recent years the boxes have taken on more than 4 sides, this is still the aspect of four, as anyone familiar with the laws of tzitzis, the four cornered garment knows).

MeUman-- see it isn't enough to just have pizza, because the Shira -- song of thanks given to G-d is only set on drink (see Sefer Hamidos - eating) -- from the wellsprings of salvation (see the Targum there -- from the Choice Tzaddik! - none other than Rabbainu), from the master chef...

Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
