Circling from the end to the beginning

My grandfather notes a number of connections between the end of the Torah and its begiing:
1) What Rashi says on Bereishis בְּרֵאשִׁית
(ובשביל ישראל שנקראו (ירמיה ב ג
The last word of the Torah is  ישראל

2) -בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹ ים'
The last letters of those 3 words spell out אמֶת = truth (credited to the Ba'al HaTurim) . And the truth of theTorah is made known to us through Moshe having demonstrated it to the eyes of all Israel אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה משֶׁה לְעֵינֵי כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל

3) בְּרֵאשִׁית= כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל
All of Israel = the beginning of everything, for it all depends on the unity of Israel , Only through that do we have standing and the possibility to keep all of the Torah.  

I've completed the parsha posts with at least one representative piece from each parsha that is covered in the book. If I add from the book, it would be from some of the additional pieces that appear in the appendix. I do plan to post one related to weddings, so stay tuned.
