Teshuva Tefila U'Tzedaka = Tzom Kol Momon / Tzom = 136 / Kol = 136 / Momon = 136

In Parshas Vayeitzei by the dream, the Baal Haturim says that Sulam = 136 / Oini = 136 / Momon = 136 to tell us that money comes and money goes

Checkmark for Gematria from the Baal Haturim. – Isaac Moses Dec 1 '10 at 17:58
My Rabbi mentioned this gematria in his derasha this past Shabbat, prompting me to come here and make sure it was registered. I'm glad to see that it was, and that I already duly appreciated it. :) – Isaac Moses Nov 26 '12 at 16:34

Chapter 136 in Tehilim is the last Tehilim said before Baruch She'amar on Shabbat (Nusach Sefarad)
