The 7 branches of the Menorah correspond to the 7 spirits of God described in Isaiah 11.

There are 22 almond blossoms distributed over the 7 branches and 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet. 22/7 = Pi.

Almond branches and blossoms are a symbol of the sons of Aaron, the Cohanim, and they have five petals each, perhaps symbolizing #torah or Covenant.
