Notarikon


In Kabbalism this is a mystic way of using words in the Bible to interpret that book. Notarikon utilizes the procedure of devising new words from combinations of the first and last letters of special words. (Also see Notariqon) This resembles two other different methods of gaining enlightenment called gematria and temurah. A.G.H.
