Family - Healing & Restoration


Parshat Vayigash

Genesis 44.18 - 47.27


AUDIO 


We offer this study in the memory of those we love.  May they be elevated in the Heavens. May there memory be for good.  May they rest in peace.


Dear Ones,

Teachers , Classmates, Members and Supporters are curious and sometimes wonder what a day, or week, or month is like in our life.  It would take a lot of time to provide details.  The Rebbetzin worked more than 60 hour this past week. She has been on call 24 / 7 this week. She worked until around 2:30 am this morning then retired. Due to emergencies she was paged several times after retiring and needed to respond to each...  The Rebbetzin is tied down during her turn of being on call 24/7. She cannot go anywhere... She handles most of the cleaning, laundry, meals, Sabbath and High Holiday prep.  Then she still makes time for daily prayers and some study. This is why it has been challenging for her to do Reflections. 


I work full-time as a Realtor which normally includes 12 hours of floor time and 28 hours in the field each week. Considerable driving is required. It is easy to spend between 4 to 12 hours just driving. Sometimes its more or less.  This past week I prepared four lessons wrote many E-Mails.  Some E-mails were brief other requires hours.  This week centered on many family issues.


One man will not speak with his mother and father-in-law.  His Father-in-law is in the hospital dying.  He is a widower. He has suffered greatly and been horribly abused by his mother-in-law.  His children are effected. Friends are effected. The story goes on. 


Another husband and wife must tell their daughter that Daddy is not really Daddy after more than two decades of giving loving care to the one he raise as his daughter. The real Daddy wants to meet his daughter etc.


A daughter whose mother has been informed that her mother is dying of cancer and must have immediate surgery.


One man discovers that his daughter is a lesban. 


One woman discovers her son married without inviting her.


Two individual lost who lost employment needed encouragement.


Four different individuals who are each returning to Torah Observance are bubbling with excitement. They want to share their joy with  us. That is so wonderful amid a week of so much pain.


I shared a report with Teachers , Classmates, Members and Supporters about the larger picture of what we are seeing at B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC.


This week we received no donations. 


After Shabbat last we the Rebbetzin and I built a wonderful Chanukah Menorah and celebrated Chanukah each evening. I exchanged some Chanukah E-mail with Classmates...


Our Parshat again centers on family issues. The Family issues are between Yoseif and Yehudah, Benjamin and their father Yaakov. Yoseif reveals he is their brother. Yaakov is informed that Yoseif lives and is Viceroy of Egypt. Pharaoh and Yoseif invite Yoseif's relatives to move to Egypt.  They are given choice land in Goshen. 70 relatives total move to Egypt.  Yaakov unites with Yoseif.  Yaakov meets Pharaoh. 


We pray that our Creator will Bless you...


Blessings, Love and Peace,


Dr, Akiva Gamliel and Rebbetzin Revi

Parshat Vayechi

Genesis 47.28 - 50.26


For until Shiloh comes...

Our Torah Discussion is in the loving memory of Channah bat Sarah, Michael ben Sarah, Martha bat Sarah, Idah bat Chavah, Will been Chavah, George ben Idah, Ethel Channah bat Channah, Stephen been Martha, Carrie bat Brachah Rivkah. May they rest in peace.  May they be elevated in the Heavens.  May their memory be for good.



Dear Ones, as always there are many Torah subjects in this weeks Parshat.  A few are:

The days and years of Yaakov's Life...


Yaakov's request / demand to yoseif - Do not bury me in Egypt, bury me with my fathers.


Yaakov takes Ephraim and Menasheh as his sons.


Yaakov Blesses Ephraim and Menasheh


 Yaakov Teaches the method of blessing - He placed his hand on their head and said, In you shall Israel bless, saying, God Make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh


Yaakov draws his son near to share the 'End of Days' with them. He Blesses them and gives each instruction. This is 2,315 From Creation.


In Yaakov's instruction to Yehudah he says, 'Until Shiloh comes.' Our Rabbis point to this statement as the first Verse in Ha Torah's portion of the Bible which points to the Messiah coming. This does not mean those living prior to Yaakov were unfamiliar with the Coming of Messiah. This is the first time Messiah is mentioned. As we will discover this prophecy is mystical in nature. THE ONLY WAY we observe Messiah in these four Word is through Jewish Mysticism. Jewish Mysticism is one form of Bible interpretation. 


Genesis 49.10

לֹא־יָסוּר שֵׁבֶט מִיהוּדָה וּמְחֹקֵק מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו

עַד כִּי־יָבֹא שִׁילֹה וְלוֹ יִקְּהַת עַמִּים:


עַד כִּי־יָבֹא שִׁילֹה

For until Shiloh comes...

Within the Word שִׁילֹה are a composition of Letters that the Sages Teach, שי and לו meaning [peoples will ] bring to him a gift.


Psalms 76.12  Make a vow, and pay to the Lord your God; let all who are around him bring presents to him who is to be feared.


Isaiah 18.7

 In that time shall a gift be brought to the Lord of hosts, by a people tall and smooth, and from a people terrible from their beginning onward; a nation mighty and conquering, whose land the rivers divide, to the place of the name of the Lord of hosts, the Mount Zion.


Sforno comments that within the Word  שִׁילֹה are the Letters שלה which is the root Word for  שִׁילֹה  שַׁלְוָה meaning happiness and שְׁלוֹם meaning peace. 


From this we learn that the Messiah will bring happiness and peace.


Our Parshat concludes with Yoseif approaching Pharaoh to request that he be allowed to bury his father in Eretz Canaan. Our Sages point to the wording Yoseif used. This was a sign to Pharaoh. Originally when Yoseif was selected to be Viceroy he was tested by Pharaoh in his knowledge of the seventy languages. Yoseif knew them all. Pharaoh did not know Hebrew. Even though he tried to learn Hebrew he could not.  He made Yoseif take a vow not to reveal this to anyone.  Yoseif took the vow.  Yoseif told Pharaoh that his father made him take a similar vow. Pharaoh knew that if he required Yoseif to break the vow with his father then his vow with Yoseif could also be broken. He would loose his position as Pharaoh because he did not know all seventy languages.


Near the conclusion of the Book of Genesis we read these Words.


Genesis 49.18


לִישׁוּעָתְךָ קִוִּיתִי יְהוָֹה:

For your salvation Ooh Lord I do long.


The last Parshat concludes with Yoseif reassuring his brother of his good intents after their father had passed on.


Yoseif dies at 110. Levi remains alive.


Chazk


May our study be for good!

In my book entitled, Mysterious Signs Of The Torah REVEALED IN EXODUS I write about Parshat Terumah.  I share a store of when operating a charitable organization that received contributions of gifts. In the story I discuss the concept of giving. 

What is it like to give?

What is it like to give junk away?

What is it like to give discards, useless things of little or no value away?

What is it like to give something away that one does not need or use?

What is it like to give something that is costly, prized, cherished away? 


I share this story.


One day we were having a yard sale. Many items were on display, including a dozen or so bikes in very rough condition. A middle aged man seemed to be taking an interest in these bikes. A few of us noticed. We thought maybe he was a bike dealer. After a while I approached him to begin a conversation. The first words out of his mouth were, 'It's amazing what junk some people will give to a non profit organization.'


Over the years I have experienced and shared many humorous and sad stories. I cannot count the times someone has said to me, 'Akiva, it's amazing the discards people try to pawn off on non profits.' 

Dear reader, We would receive calls. The giver would describe the item over the phone. Their description would sound like ice cream with chocolate syrup melting down the sides, with nuts scattered generously over it with a cherry on top. We couldn't wait to receive the contribution. Well, needless to say, it did not take us long to begin asking several questions like, How old is it? Does it have any rips, tears, holes, worn spots, stains? What color is it? Does it need cleaning? With televisions, radios, stereos, refrigerators, ranges, etc. we would ask does it work... properly...?

Even after this, on some occasions when we would arrive to receive the contribution you would think we spoke a different language. I recall the conversation with an individual after refusing to accept her contribution. She was sincere. This professional blew big time. She said, 'What's the matter with you? I can't believe this! We took this furniture out of our home. It was good enough for us! The board of your organization is going to hear about this! Leave it! I'll call the Salvation Army.'  I made the mistake of saying, "They won't take it either..."

Her contribution was a particle board computer desk from Noah's ark. It had a hole in the side the size of a football. The children had redecorated it with paints and stickers. Unfortunately I touched it and it fell over. There were other items but...

I cannot count the shoes with holes, the high heels without the heel, the pants where the seat was missing, the faded dresses, the stained shirts and blouses, pots and pans without handles, etc.

Actually we did receive many very good usable gifts but our focus today is on acceptable gifts. Many gifts were not acceptable.

Years ago I purchased an old oak desk that several friends help restore to its original condition. This took much work. It was drenched in white and blue enamel paint. We spent days of stripping, sanding, oiling, etc. This desk lived in my study at home. At my office I had a new solid wood executive desk. It was nice but I like the old oak desk the best.  When the office was closed I had two desks. A friend expressed a desire for my old restored oak desk. I did not want to part with it.  I gave it to her and her husband even though it was very special to me. Years later when my friends no longer required the desk they gave it back to me.

Dear Reader, It is one thing to give away a useless piece of discarded junk and an entirely different matter to give away a priceless, warm, special treasure that happily lives in your home or office.

Years ago in a discussion entitled GENEROSITY I shared the following comment:

There is no way to describe the impact of generosity BECAUSE it is so unusual. It is so odd based upon the pattern of people who study on our web sites. Well over 99.9% take without giving anything back.. In fact it is so very very rare to even receive a simple 'Thank You' let alone a contribution. In this sense here is what I am saying.

At JewishPath.org... JewishPath.com... Jewishlink.net... 7commands.com... and bnti.us we reach out to people. Our web sites reach millions of individuals. Thousands study on our sites daily. We are so pleased! YET, - Only a very very small handful of all these millions upon millions of people ever send a thank you... an appreciation... a gift... an offering. This type of generosity is so rare... 

Now we return to the question we began with. Am I Unique, Distinct, Rare, Exceptional, One of a Kind? Then this question was followed by another, Would I like to be Unique, Unlike others?

To be unique all that is necessary is to simple write the words, 'Thank you' and e-mail them to us... 

Every once in awhile we receive an email or letter or a phone call from the millions who are out there... Several days ago was one of those days. The phone rang. I answered. The caller was a lady. She asked who she was speaking to. I said, 'Akiva Belk'.  She went on to explain that she had placed an order and had not received it. Within a couple of days we took care of that issue. I drove the order to the US Post Office and shipped it myself.  What is the point?

This special lady has been studying with us for years.  We did not know who she was.  We still don't. Yet, we knew she was out there. Dear Reader, you are out there.  We don't know you. Yet, we know you are out there. You are one of the millions who are from one of over a hundred plus countries that learn with us daily... weekly... monthly... We love you! We appreciate you!  Yes, it would be nice to hear from you. It would be nice to know who you are... If you wrote to us it would get our attention. Then if you sent us a gift... Can you imagine how rare and unusual you would be?  Do you have any ideal of the power it takes to move one to just write 'Thank You!?  Can you imagine the enormous motivation required to take a charge card out of one's billfold or purse and to take five minutes to send a Terumah Offering to us?  I cannot describe to you how unique... how different... how rare this type of individual is.

Years ago, On 1 Shevat my father passed away. May he rest in peace! He was eighty-nine years of age. We informed our students about my loss. 100% of my classmates... those enrolled at B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLCV wrote words of kindness and thoughts of compassion. A small percentage sent cards and gifts which were very much appreciated. However from the millions of students {not classmates} who have received this service free for years sent fewer than 5 emails of condolence. Dear Ones, a foundation stone of Judaism is Chesed... Kindness...Charity... Recently, i.e. less than two weeks ago I released two books. Book one is entitled, 'Would You Like To Be Jewish?' Book two which is real hard hitting is entitled, 'Would You Like To Be Jewish 2 ?' In these two books we discuss how to have and enjoy doctrinal FREEDOM from the religions of the world. We discuss how one does not have to fear hell or satan or believe in Jesus to be saved or to make heaven their home. These books are part of a series.  One cannot cover all there is to being Jewish in two books of a 150 pages. One of the areas I did not discuss YET is a heart of generosity! God Willing this is a topic for another book in this series of books. 

Dear Reader, the point is that in this weeks parshat we read about the Jew whose heart is impelled... is driven to generosity. 

Exodus 25.1,2

 וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָֹה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר:  ב

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

 דַּבֵּר אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְיִקְחוּ־לִי תְּרוּמָה מֵאֵת כָּל־אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִדְּבֶנּוּ לִבּוֹ תִּקְחוּ אֶת־תְּרוּמָתִי: ג

Speak to the people of Israel, that they may take me an offering; from every man that is impelled by his heart you shall take everything from Aleph toTav of my offering. 

Dear Ones there is a special message here.  The message tells us who can be Jewish. The message is ONLY one whose heart impels him / her to generosity. How is one implied to generosity?  One can ONLY be impelled through The Letters... the Words... the Verses... the Observances of Ha Torah. How do we know this?  The Gematria of 'TORAH' is 611. The Gematria of אֲשֶׁר יִדְּבֶנּוּ לִבּוֹ Ah Sher - Yee Dih Beh Nu - Le Boh, meaning, implied by his heart, is the Gematria of 611. What does this mean?  This means if you are of that school that teaches the Hebrew Scriptures are Old and fulfilled and done away with THE MESSAGE OF TORAH CANNOT TOUCH YOU! You cannot be Jewish! Your heart is hardened by a doctrine that takes you away from the source, i.e. Ha Torah that has the power to impel your heart to generosity!  You cannot be Unique or Distinct, Rare, Exceptional in this way. Your heart is CLOSED to the force that impels. Can this change? Yes!  Dear Ones I am not saying that because you haven't written to us or sent a gift offering to us that your heart is not impelled to  generosity. I am saying when your heart is impelled by Ha Torah to Generosity you will know it. No one will have to tell you. The scales by which one measures changes drastically!  No longer does one measure how much one is required to tithe or to give but one is told by the Sages they have reach the maximum of giving allowed for them in a year. They are not permitted to give beyond this point!  I have know individuals so motivated by Ha Torah to give that it is difficult for them to operate their business.  Their office is lined with individuals seeking a contribution. There is a beaten path to the door of their homes from individuals needing assistance. 

Dear Ones, there are non-Jews who are motivated by The Torah to give like this. The point I am making is the motivation to give like I have described comes from the Torah. The principle comes from the Torah. 

Now do not be saddened if you have no money to give. Do not be down and out if you cannot give money in the way your heart desires to give. You have something else that is of great value that you can give. SIMPLY WRITE 'THANK YOU!'  I am saying Words of sincere encourage are very valuable!  Dear Reader you can give Ha Torah's Words of encouragement to anyone you choose. The Torah Speaks more about the Words we select to use than Tithes... than Offerings... than Charity... even those these are important. 

Your Words are powerful. You can help others by sharing experiences... you can help others who are lonesome. Call someone who is lonesome. Love them. Listen to them! Care about them. God has chosen those who are wealthy to give money. God has chosen us to give our time, our energy, our experience, our advice, our words to help others...

We can tithe our time.  We can give an offering of time.  We can share with others the things we are good with. There is an individual that i follow on Twitter. This individual has a gift of baking which she gives to others. There is another individual who cares deeply about pets. She advocates for pets. There are a number of men that do not have congregations who learn with others. They give what they have with others. They share what they are good at with others.

We ask the questions again, Do you want to be Unique or Distinct, Rare or Exceptional. You can be Unique  Distinct, Rare and Exceptional.

I would like to encourage you to make a contribution to B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC. We are NOT a 501 c3. We do not want the government telling us what we can and cannot say. Why? At B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC we have a flask of wine we call Yien Ohlam, meaning 'Eternal Wine.' When an individual sends a offering of any size a small portion is used to purchase Kosher Wine. A small portion of the wine from each purchase is poured into the flask of Yien Ohlam, the 'Eternal Wine.' This goes back many years now. Only God knows how many individuals have made a contribution to the Eternal wine. We have said thousands and thousands of Blessings on the wine which comes from the Eternal Wine. Every Sabbath, High Holiday etc we take from the Yien Ohlam to say Blessings. These that gave when we began the 'Eternal Wine' have been blessed thousands of times. Some gave money to help us purchase the wine.  Others gave their time. Both are valuable. If you would like to be included send a money offering of any amount through our secure donation button or give donation of your time then email us these Words along with your name, 'I give!' We will include you in our Blessings of the 'Eternal Wine'. 

 אֲשֶׁר יִדְּבֶנּוּ לִבּוֹ 

Ah Sher - Yee Dih Beh Nu - Le Boh, meaning, implied by his heart,

א1 ש300 ר200     י10 ד4 ב2 נ50 ו6    ל30 ב2 ו 6 = 611

תּוֹרָה

Torah - Five Books of Moses

ת400 ו6 ר200 ה5 = 611

May we be blessed by strong acts of generosity.

Parshat Tezaveh

Exodus 27.20 - 30.10


Holy Clothing

We offer this discussion in the loving memory of Mr and Mrs Belk and Mrs Martha Reynolds may they rest in peace and may their memory be for good and may they be elevated in the heavens.  May those who study with us and give charity in their memory be richly blessed.


וְאַתָּה תְּדַבֵּר אֶל־כָּל־חַכְמֵי־לֵב אֲשֶׁר מִלֵּאתִיו רוּחַ חָכְמָה וְעָשׂוּ אֶת־בִּגְדֵי אַהֲרֹן לְקַדְּשׁוֹ לְכַהֲנוֹ־לִי: 


And you shall speak to all who are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister to me in the priest's office.


There are some unique Word relationships here.


אֶל־כָּל

Ehl Cawl

To All

א1 ל30    כ20 ל30 = 81      


פא

Pey

The Letter Pey - Mouth

פ80 א1 = 81


We know that the Letter פ Pey has two forms by design. The normal פ Pey is bent. The normal פ Pey appears everywhere in a Word except for the concluding Letter. The Final Pey letter is a ף , we use a Final ף Pey at the end of a word. This is supposed to allude to the two different functions of the mouth. Rabbi Michael L. Munk speaks of this in his Book entitled, The Wisdom IN The HEBREW Alphabet . The bent Pey symbolizes a closed mouth. This means there are many times we should not speak. The Final Pay, which is tall and straight and looks a little like a shepherd's staff. This symbolizes when one should speak. So, the Final Pey teaches one should speak. The Final Pey teaches when one should speak, one should not interrupt. 


In this passage we observe the Word תְּדַבֵּר precedes אֶל־כָּל. When we Observe a Letter in an unusual place this is a sign to STOP and to mine awhile. Search around a little. Discover. The Letter ת Tav is the last Letter of אות, meaning SIGN. The Letter ת Tav is the last Letter of אמת Truth and אות Sign. This behooves us to pay attention to the Letter Tav especially when the Tav appears in front of a Word that normally would not require a Tav to begin. 


The Word תְּדַבֵּר is an example. As such it occurs only fourteen times in Ha Torah. This means  תְּדַבֵּר is carrying a special message. In this usage I believe תְּדַבֵּר is pointing  'how we speak' to the Wise of heart. The first usage of  תְּדַבֵּר was when God Spoke to Laban as to how he should speak to Jacob in Genesis 31.24. Then we observe the Word דִּבַּרְתָּ where the ת Tav concludes the Word. דִּבַּרְתָּ is another unique Word which is found only nine times in Ha Torah. Remember nine is representative of Sefirah Yesod, the establishing of the foundation. If one wants to establish a good solid foundation they must be careful how they speak. דִּבַּרְתָּ is in reference to what has already been spoken. The Angels Answered Abraham, דִּבַּרְתָּ, Genesis 18.5. The Angel answered Lot דִּבַּרְתָּ. Eisov answered Isaac דִּבַּרְתָּ. 


The Gematria of  תְּדַבֵּר  and דִּבַּרְתָּ are both 606.


 תְּדַבֵּר

ת400 ד4 ב2 ר200 = 606


דִּבַּרְתָּ

ד4 ב2 ר200 ת400 = 606


חַכְמֵי־לֵב

Wise of Heart

ה8 כ20 מ40 י10      ל30 ב2  = 110 


 יִדְּבֶנּוּ לִבּוֹ

Whose Heart Impels him to generosity. 

י10 ד4 ב2 נ50 ו6   ל30 ב2 ו 6 = 110


Above are to very special Gematria relationships. In Exodus 25.2 we observe the one whose Heart Impels him to generosity.  יִדְּבֶנּוּ לִבּוֹ and in Exodus 28.3 we observe the Wise of Heart. We need both. Both are important. Generosity is a unique quality that is rare. A special type of kindness is required to be generous. A Generous individual must be Blessed with plenty. One should not be generous with what they don't have. An individual Blessed with Generosity is NOT selfish. An individual who is Blessed with Generosity is openhanded... benevolent... copious... They are indeed rare. We thank our Creator for them.


We have individuals that have given and given to us at B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC and then all of a sudden they stop. Their heart tends toward Generosity but their wallet is saying STOP! We understand this!  We deeply appreciate those who have been Generous. Yet, we also understand when one cannot give. It's OK.  We love you! We appreciate you! G-d Willing you will receive rain and sunshine and God Willing your wealth will grow again. The Rebbetzin shared a special story last week at the Sabbath Table. Maybe we can get her to share it on audio.


We also have a need for those that can make Holy Garments. One would think that the wisdom is required in the construction of the garment. To a degree this is true. Rabbi Elie Munk in his book entitled, The Call Of The Torah points to Ramban's explanation. The Wise of Heart focus on the Inner meaning of the Garment while working on them.  Normally each Yom Shi Shi, sixth day which begins when? Yom Shi Shi begins at dark on Thursday evening. As the sixth day ushers in I hear the mixer running fast then slow then fast then slow. A little later I hear the Rebbetzin singing a Kabbalist melody Aw Naw  - Bih Choh Ach while she kneads the Sabbath Challah  The melody raises and raises. It's beautiful. Kaw Naw Nah Hah Raw. Then the Challah begins to rise... Then our home is filled with the fragrance of fresh Sabbath bread baking.  As we shall soon see the original garments of Adam and Eve where made of light. 


Exodus 28.2

 וְעָשִׂיתָ בִגְדֵי־קֹדֶשׁ לְאַהֲרֹן אָחִיךָ לְכָבוֹד וּלְתִפְאָרֶת: 


And you shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother for glory and for beauty. 


God Commanded that those who are wise of heart to make the Holy Garments / Garments that are set aside from other garments. Holy means sanctified, consecrated,  set aside or separated. Garments that are Holy are different from other Garments. So we have Holy Garments and we have Garments that are not holy. Holy garments are worn by the Priests. Holy Garments are Garments for כָבוֹד Honor and Garments for תִפְאָרֶת Splendor, i.e. beauty. The beauty being spoken of here is an emanation of the Creator. One of the purposes of this emanation of the Creator is to draw us together. When we study the diagram of the Sefirot we Observe that Tiferet ... Beauty...  Splendor...  is the only emanation that has a direct path to the other nine emanations. The emanation, Tiferet has exterior coverings. Tiferet is the Palace of Priests. Tiferet is the Palace where Adam and Eve lived before she took... Tiferet is the Palace of Light... of  Revelation... Adam and Eve Wore Clothing of Light. They were covered with Divine Revelation until Eve took what was not her's and shared it with her husband...


Genesis 2.15 God took

Genesis 2.21 God took

Genesis 3.6 the wife took - 


The 'wife' saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes and a tree to be desired to make one wise [SO]  she took of the fruit and ate and then gave it to her HUSBAND with her; and he did eat. - Note: Ha Torah does not say Adam. 


From this point Adam, the Husband And Eve the Wife, lost their Beauty, their covering.  Since this time Adam has been on the Left of Tiferet and Eve has been on the right of Tiferet. They have been Azeri / opposite each other.  Eve is opposite him. Adam is opposite of Eve.


How did this happen? She took...  She stole... she gave to her husband... He accepted stolen goods.


Both were driven from Tiferet. 


Think of the impact. 


Those who are Wise of Heart make the Holy Garments. They Spiritually / Mentally weave and stitch thoughts of Holiness into the garment they are preparing. They know when to say nothing. Stitch! Stitch! They know when to speak. Stitch! They know how to say the Holy Words that must be said. Stitch! Stitch! Stitch! 


What about us who wear them? How wise are we? Are we preparing ourself to wear the Holy Garments. 


We are a מַמְלֶכֶת כֹּהֲנִים Kingdom of Priests [to the nations of the world].  Exodus 19.6.  We are supposed to be living in Tiferet. Are we?


What is the relationship of the Priests Clothing to that of the Sefirot?


As an important note this Parshat has the first mention of Yesod in Ha Torah..., i.e. the establishing of the foundation.


This weeks discussion is a spin off of my book entitled, Mysterious SIGNS Of THE TORAH REVEALED IN EXODUS .
