The Ineffable Name

 

The Ineffable Name of G-d, which at this time of history is too holy to be pronounced as it is spelled: Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh, is actually made up of two parts, Yud-Heh and Vav-Heh. The unified Name represents periods of history when G-dís Presence is revealed and known, and the divided Name represents periods of time when G-dís Presence is hidden. This is why the prophet said of the Days of Mashiach: "On that day, He will be One, and His Name will be One" (Zecharya 14:9)
