The Basics of Judaism: G-d & Torah: The 72-Letter Name of G-d:
What is the 72-letter Name of G-d?
A Divine Name that has the numerical value 72 is obtained by spelling
out the four letters of the Tetragrammaton: Yud (=20), He (=15),
Vav (=22), He (=15) (G. Scholem, Kabbalah, p.172), where the
numerical values are obtained by spelling Yud as yud,vav,dalet;
Vav as vav,yud,vav; and He as he, yud. 72 is also the numerical
value of "hayah, hoveh, ve-yihyeh".
