Glenn Beck's "Restoring Courage" extravaganza is often referred to simply as "8/24." Two plus four equals 6, the number of man. Twenty-four is six times four or the number of man to the four corners of this world, encompassing all of physicality. Above that is the number eight, the number of days for brit milah, the most enduring symbol of Jewish identity; also, the number above nature, transcending this world, and the number of Mashiach. Glenn Beck, despite all his hints that he is called by G-d Almighty to be some savior of the world, and his Christian hordes can never rise above the number six.


Following is the most recent release of details available. Note that the big Christian event is being held in the old Roman amphitheater in Caesarea, the city which was the Roman (and Christian) seat of power in Eretz Yisrael and the place where Rabbi Akiva was executed. All the souls are returning to their root source.
