Shumshom, Appointment

ט"ו באדר תשס"ז

Sesame in Hebrew is shumshom שומשום, with a total gematria of 692, a digit sum of 17 (טוב), and a final digit sum 8 (אז).

Shumshom derives from the shoresh שום meaning "to place", "to appoint for use", "enabling" and "decision". This root is found in Shemot 4:11, "who appoints a mouth ... or who appoints one dumb or deaf, or sighted or blind ...", where Hashem is appointing Moshe as prophet.
