Soul Chart

This chart presents a number of ideas from Torah in a fashion that shows a relationship between them based on the Four-letter Name of G-d. There are actually five parts to this Name when the top part of the first letter (called the “cusp” or “apex” of the Yod) is included. The information on this chart is from traditional Jewish sources. We are continually adding to this chart.
