Mezuzah focuses small leaks of the Light in a powerful way that scares and blinds the evil spirits. While we can't prevent the door from leaking the small portions of the divine light, the mezuzah makes the ray more lethal. But a mezuzah is more than a superstition. Most importantly, it's a symbol of the covenant and Jewish identity.
The Hanukkah menorah has nine branches instead of seven branches to preserve the original divine design. The eight branches of the symbolical tree of life represent the eight days the menorah kept lighting, despite having oil sufficient to last a day.

The tzitzit is an important part of the Jewish fabric – the tallit (cloak). The tassel has eight strands – seven white and one blue. The white strands indicate divinity (holiness) and the blue strand symbolizes God’s royalty or authority. The tassel is a reminder of God’s covenant, the Mosaic Law, and commandments.
It wasn’t clear how many people steered the first-century Galilean watercraft for many centuries until 1986. The Gospel books gave us accounts, but they left us to guess crew size and passenger capacity. The boat’s discovery has illuminated us, and now we’re certain that a maximum of five people steered the boat. The Gospel accounts indicate that the boat accommodates more than five people, but Josephus Flavius confirms this by indicating that the boat can accommodate around 15 people.
While Jesus’s actions may seem to have violated the Mosaic Law (or Jewish traditions), if the woman who suffered from chronic bleeding touched the “hem” or tassel of His garment, then the ancient laws and the covenant held great significance in her healing. The books of Numbers and Deuteronomy give a biblical context of the tassel. This part holds great significance, and it’s possible that, had the woman touched a different part, she couldn’t have healed.
There are three chief reasons why the actions of the Judean woman to touch Jesus’s garment were controversial – and revolutionary. For one, it’s against the custom of Judea for a man to touch and talk to a woman who isn’t clearly his mother, daughter or wife. Second, the Judean society is male-dominated, and so the treatment of men and women isn’t equal. Third, lepers are social outcasts in the society.
