 Soul Mazel
According to the Kabbalah, a Jewish person's Hebrew name is a powerful indicator of who that person is, what their potential may be and the direction that they should pursue in life. Reading names involves analyzing the individual's given Hebrew name, the Hebrew name of his or her parents and the Hebrew date of birth. Rabbi David Katz opened his Soul Mazal project to provide services allowing individuals to discover the inner meaning of their Hebrew name.
One method is to use the "gematria" of a person's name to uncover this information. According to Jewish tradition the "gematria" is a system of numerology which is based on Torah and Kabbalah sources. This concept is more popular in Hassidic philosophy than in the "Lithuanian," or non-Hassidic school of Jewish thought. Regardless gematrias are recognized as a legitimate way of "reading" a persons traits and destiny by Jewish scholars from every stream of traditional Jewish thought.
 Striving to Climb Higher
According to Jewish mysticism -- Kabbalah -- every Jewish person is obligated to strive to reach the highest possible level of knowledge and deed. This is part of each Jewish person's mission in life. It is accomplished by studying specific texts or performing deeds and acts of loving kindness that express the elements of one's name.
