Exodus 1. 8

וַיָּקָם מֶלֶךְ־חָדָשׁ עַל־מִצְרָיִם אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יָדַע אֶת־יוֹסֵף1:1 


And He arose, a new king to Egypt that did not know everything from Aleph to Tav of Yoseif.

וַיָּקָם

Vaw Yaw Kawm

And He Arose

ו6 י10 ק100 ם40 = 156


יוֹסֵף

Yoseif 

ו6 י10 ס60 ף80 = 156


The Words  מְצַוְּךָ Mih Tzah Voo Chaw, meaning Commanding You and הָאָסִיף Haw Aw Seef, meaning ingathering. They are the Gematria 156.


מְצַוְּךָ

Mih Tzah Voo Chaw 

Commanding You

מ40 צ90 ו6 ך20 = 156


הָאָסִיף

Haw Aw See

ingathering

ה5 א1 ס60 י10 ף80 = 156



New leaders bring changes. Departing leaders bring changes. With the departing of Yoseif / Joseph we see ingathering.  With the new king we see commanding you...


In our world today we need ingathering that Yoseif brought. Yoseif brought families, peoples and nations together.  Yoseif was concerned for all of The Lord's Creation. Notice the Final Letters of Yoseif and Haw Aw Seef.  Both Words end in the Letter ף Final Pey.  The Final Pey looks like a shepherd's staff.  In our world we need people who care about others.  We need the right type of leadership in every facet of life.  We need leaders who draw people together.  Our world is hurting for the right type of leadership. We see this in the Gematria 156. There are different types of people in leadership positions.   One ף Final Pey the Verse the other concludes it. 


Genesis 50.19 - 21

'Joseph said to them, Fear not; for am I in the place of God? But as for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it to be good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive. Now therefore do not fear; I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spoke kindly to them...'


Many years ago as a staff member for a Jewish school  I observed such an act.  We were having the dedication for  a new building. Great Rabbis were invited to participate from all around the country. The school was across the street from a major Hospital.


One afternoon during our celebration a young man came in the front door of the school heading right into the sanctuary where he sat down, bowed his head and remained quiet. He was from hundreds of miles away.  I noticed him.  One of the Rabbi's also noticed him.  The Rabbi walked over to me, leaned over and whispered into my ear something like, What does this young man need? 


My reply was, I don't know


He immediately motioned for his assistance to go speak with the young man. Then he whispered another sentence in my ear, 'We should find out what he needs.'  This is what one expects of a great Rabbi.   He was a Yoseif type leader. 

We learned, the young man was Jewish.  He lived in a small town hundreds of miles away.  His wife was in the hospital having surgery. That Rabbi saw to it that this young mans needs were attended to.


We need rulers who care about people as this Rabbi did. The man was dressed in blue jeans. He was not wearing a kippah or tzitzit. So What! The keen sensitiveness of this great Rabbi has stuck with me.

Exodus 6.2

וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָֹה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה עַתָּה תִרְאֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶעֱשֶׂה לְפַרְעֹה כִּי בְיָד חֲזָקָה יְשַׁלְּחֵם וּבְיָד חֲזָקָה יְגָרֲשֵׁם מֵאַרְצוֹ1:1


And The Lord Said to Moses, soon you will see what [I will do to] Pharaoh. For with [My] strong hand [he will] send them out and with a strong hand he will drive them out of his land.


Exodus 6.3

וַיְדַבֵּר אֱלֹהִים אֶל־מֹשֶׁה וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו אֲנִי יְהוָֹה1:1


And He, God Spoke to Moses, And He Said to him, I am The Lord.


Exodus 6.4

וָאֵרָא אֶל־אַבְרָהָם אֶל־יִצְחָק וְאֶל־יַעֲקֹב בְּאֵל שַׁדָּי וּשְׁמִי יְהֹוָה לֹא נוֹדַעְתִּי לָהֶם1:1


And [ I ] Appeared to Abraham, to Jacob and to Issac as God Almighty and not by My Name The Lord. [I] did not reveal to them.


The Word נוֹדַעְתִּי Noh Dah Tee means 'reveal'. The Gematria of נוֹדַעְתִּי Noh Dah Tee is 540

נוֹדַעְתִּי

Noh Dah Tee

נ50 ו6 ד4 ע70 ת400 י 10 = 540

To Guard

ש300 מ40 ר200 = 540


A revelation from God is very special. We must carefully guard revelations. We have to be careful not to loose what we have. We have to be careful to keep the rust off the revelations the Creator Gives us. His revelations are precious to us. My Rabbi once spoke to me. He said, 'Akiva, do you know how fortunate you are? You have heard the Voice of God at least four times. I have never heard the Voice of God. I envy you!! You are truly Blessed!' He is right!


Dear Reader the Torah portion of the Bible was given to Moses by the Voice of God. The Torah is a revelation of God! No other Book of the Bible was spoken to the Writer Word for Word. In this chapter we are going to review how God [singular] Spoke these Words.


The Name אֱלֹהִים El Loh Heem is plural. אֱלֹהִים means gods when it is not used in reference to God as Judge or Creator. Even though the Name אֱלֹהִים El Loh Heem is plural אֱלֹהִים El Loh Heem is ALWAYS used as singular when reference is made to God as Creator. Why? אֱלֹהִים El Loh Heem our Creator is One. The Name אֱלֹהִים is singular in Exodus 6,3. The Name אֱלֹהִים is always used with the singular intent when used in reference to God.

Deuteronomy 6.12

Beware lest you forget The Lord, who Brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.


Pharaoh was steeped in hard denial. Not only was he unwilling to acknowledge his sin of oppressing B'nei Israel, he increased the level of oppression. Pharaoh also denied the existence of God. 

Throughout this parshat we are constantly reminded that Pharaoh's heart was hard, that his heart remained set in preventing B'nei Israel from worshipping The Lord! His denial was a public denial! It was a sin against The Lord and against His people. B'nei Israel! 

He ordered his officers to afflict B'nei Israel! At each turn in the course of events, The Lord Tells Moses to remind Pharaoh and the people of Egypt.


'...that I am The Lord...' Exodus 7:5 


'By this you will know that I am The Lord...' Exodus 7:17 


'...You will know that there is none like The Lord, our G-d..' Exodus 8:6

 '...You will know that I am The Lord in the midst of the earth...' Exodus 8:18


'This is what The Lord The God of the Hebrews has said...' Exodus 9:1


'...so that you may KNOW that there is none like Me in all the earth.'  Exodus 9:14 


'...so that My Name will be declared throughout the earth.' Exodus 9:16


Long before this point, the end of the fifth plague, Pharaoh knew! Yet, he continued in his ways of sinful disobedience of The Lord's Commands. There are those who know what The Lord has Commanded yet in outright denial they continue in their pattern of sin. Their conclusion will be like that of Pharaoh and Egypt. They will cross the line as Pharaoh did. Pharaoh reached a place where he was no longer was able to control his own heart... his thoughts... his actions... The Torah tells us that God took control of them. God hardened his heart!  When Pharaoh had a choice he chose to oppress B'nei Israel. He chose to continue in his pattern of disobedience. He chose to continue his denial of The Lord. He crossed the line that no one should cross. He could not return. This is the danger of the one hardened in denial of The Lord and His Commands!!


Holy reader, a staff member at JewishPath posed this question: Can't a Jew return from wherever they are, from however far they have fallen? Isn't the Jewish light an eternal light? Well, the answer is Yes and No! Yes in the sense that it is possible. Yes in the sense that The Lord can draw anyone to him. However in the practical sense, No! Don't be fooled! When a tree is young it is flexible but when it is old the flexibility is gone. If it bends too much it will break. This should serve as a caution to us not to live on the outer perimeters of Judaism where God forbid, one's lifestyle may prevent one from repentance...

One may think that eventually they may change their mind, BUT that is not necessarily true.  Those like Pharaoh, who cross the line, or those who live on the outer perimeters may go to far. It is a very scary, dangerous place to dangle with one's life! I don't like this type of teeter.


When I was a child my Father, may he rest in peace, would give an illustration to the children at youth camp. He had a bundle of sticks that were smooth and dried out. He picked these sticks up along a beach in the San Francisco Area. He also had several freshly cut Aspen branches. Daddy showed the children how flexible the young Aspen branches were.  He would bend them in every direction with out breaking a branch. He show how stiff and how unforgiving the smooth dried sticks, he found along the ocean were. He could not bend them at all. Daddy made the comparison.  Daddy explained that when we are young we can go in many directions.  Then he taught, when we are older, we will be hardened. We will not be able to go in many directions.  He explained that now was the time to let God shape our lives. Then, again reminding us many years later it would be difficult, and possible impossible, because we would be to set in out ways. 


Ecclesiastes 7.13

Consider the work of God; for who can make that straight, what He Has Made crooked?


Each of us should remember The Lord Who delivered us from Egypt and be careful to walk in His ways...

Shemot 18.1

וַיִּשְׁמַע יִתְרוֹ כֹהֵן מִדְיָן חֹתֵן מֹשֶׁה

אֵת כָּל־אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה אֱלֹהִים לְמֹשֶׁה

וּלְיִשְׂרָאֵל עַמּוֹ כִּי־הוֹצִיא יְהוָֹה

אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל מִמִּצְרָיִם: ב


Exodus 18.1

When Yitro / Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father-in-law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that the Lord had brought everything from the Letter Aleph to the Letter Tav of Israel out of Egypt...


Our Sages say that Parshat Yitro was added in honor of Moses's father-in-law. This parshat was named after Yitro. It expresses his wisdom and powerful contribution to our system of justice in the Torah. Yitro was a man who understood government, politics and justice. He was Priest of Midian. He was a consultant to Pharaoh. And then he was an advisor to Moses our teacher. Yitro was a convert to Judaism. He was a spiritual leader of Midian. It is for these reasons and others that this week's Parshat was named after him. In fact within our Torah there are only a few Parshot named after people: Noach, Chayei Sarah, Yitro, Korach, Balak and Pinchas. As a result we should begin to sense how very special Yitro is.


We are informed that Yitro had seven names: Re'uel, Yesser, Yitro, Chovev, Chever, Keini and Putiel.

The letter ו Vav represents a connection from Yeter to Yitro to the Torah! The ו Vav also represents a connection that a non Jew makes when he / she converts to Judaism. The non Jew receives a Hebrew name. The letter ו Vav is added to Yeter after his conversion thus becoming Yitro. In other words, it is somewhat comparable to adding the letter ה Hey to Torah. When we add the letter ה Hey to Torah it represents an article. So Torah becomes "The Torah." We now compare the Gematria of Yitro with "The Torah." Both are the Gematria 616.


יִתְרוֹ

Yitro

י10 ת400 ר200 ו6 = 616



הַתּוֹרָה

Torah

ה5 ת400 ו6 ר200 ה5 = 616


 דִּבַּרְתִּי 

Dee Bah Rih Tee / To say... To speak

ד4 ב2 ר200 ת400 י10 = 616


The Gematria 616 expresses the full acceptance of "The Torah" by Yitro. How fitting for the man who contributed to our system of justice in The Torah!


In addition to this, the Gematria 616 is 'MYSTICAL' in the sense that it represents acceleration, the increase, the uplifting of one's day. We see this in the Gematria Godal of Yom, meaning 'Day'. The normal Gematria of day is 56 but when we use the Gematria Miluy Godal, we so to speak elevate the day, i.e the normal Gematria transcends to Gematria Godal 616! Our day takes on a 'GREATNESS'. Can one think of a higher form of elevation than the day one converts or returns to Torah observance?


Holy reader, B'nei Israel had fallen to the 49th level while they were slaves in Egypt. They were only one level from the very lowest level.  Our Sages Say there were three reasons they did not fall to the lowest level which may have prevented their return. One of those reasons was that they kept their Hebrew names. They used their Hebrew identity! It is our Hebrew Name that has essence. It is our Hebrew Name that is scribed in the book of Life. When Yeter converted to Judaism his name was changed to Yitro. Can we imagine what it is like to have a name that shares the Gematria with Ha Torah?

Exodus 21.1

וְאֵלֶּה הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים אֲשֶׁר

11: תָּשִׂים לִפְנֵיהֶם 


And these, the Laws that set before them.


Dear Ones a while back I had the special opportunity to visit a new congregation which is just a few months old. This is the second time Revi and I visited. The first time we visited a man in the Congregation gave us his Chumash / The Five Book of Moses. Chumash means five. At that time the Congregation did not own any Chumashim.  This touched us.  As a result B'nai Noach Torah Institute gave 14 full size Stone Chumashim to the Congregation from our Seforim Fund.


Last Shabbat we visited again. It was good to see the Seforim in use. 


This Congregation was a split off another local congregation. I attempted to bring the two groups together. Both groups were challenging. They eventually worked through their differences. The end results were that wounds were healed and they came back together. However, at the time I wrote this Parshat they were still divided. 


At that time I wrote a number of Letters, spoke on the phone with each group and invited both groups to our home to discuss the matter.  These were very special individuals with different ideas about what was best for the congregation. The division was a great deal about the future of the congregation. There was a load of love and pain on both sides. Thank God over time differences were worked out.  Individuals were trying from many sides to help. Eventually several leaders from each group were able to span broken bridges, encourage trust and issues began to get resolved. 


On one of those snowy days I took my lunch break to visit their Sunday School  It was wonderful.  There were classes for the infant / preschool children up through adult. Scattered throughout the study room in the home were the Chumashim.  What a blessing.


During the visit  it was a privilege to spend about ten minutes in two classes and about twenty in another.  A board member informed me that the older children were making a Book on Rabbi Akiva.  The books were about 18" wide and 24" long.  This is a great lesson for all involved. The love and work placed into the home spun books will last for years and be used by many younger children. They are being assembled with much attention to detail.  I was impressed. Rabbi Akiva was the great Torah Sage I wrote of in the Dedication of Gematria And Mysticism IN Genesis.


In another class the Teacher informed the students that this Parshat had the most Mitzvot of all the Parshat in Ha Torah.  She used several vivid examples to convey an important meaning to her students.  She told the students, that what they already possess, is worth more than if they won a great deal of money from the lottery... and she brought her point home with more examples...


The infant / preschool children were joined by several parents.  It is especially pleasing to see parents involved  taking an interest in their child's education.  When the parent is involved it tells the child the message is important.  The children were learning the Aleph Bet and saying the names of different clothing in Hebrew. 


Dear Ones it was real good to see this start up congregation in action. It was even better when all the differences were worked out between the two groups and everyone united in Love.


This brings to the forefront an important message.  When ever congregations do not agree, or families do not agree, or husbands and wives do not agree Ha Torah still requires obedience and conformity. There is great reward in obedience!!


God Willing we are going to examine the Mysticism of Shemot 21.1.

וְאֵלֶּה הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים אֲשֶׁר

11: תָּשִׂים לִפְנֵיהֶם 


And these, the Laws that are set before them.


The Sages Say it's like preparing a banquet of many excellent foods that will entice one to eat.  The purpose of learning these Laws is to Observe them.

After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a Vision, saying, Fear not, Abram; I am your shield, and your reward will be great.

Exodus 25.1 - 8

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the people of Israel, that they bring me an offering; from every man that gives it willingly with his heart you shall take my offering. And this is the offering which you shall take from them; gold, and silver, and bronze, And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, And rams' skins dyed red, and goats' skins, and shittim wood, Oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil, and for sweet incense, Onyx stones, and stones to be set on the ephod, and on the breastplate. And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.


Some years ago several rabbium, and I founded and operated a non profit program. We solicited new and used gifts from our community. The organization gave the gifts to Jewish educational institutions that needed them, sold others gifts to raise funds for Jewish education and discarded the unusables. We were paid for bulk clothing and shoes etc. 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.'

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.

This week's parshat is saying only certain things belong in God's House. Only certain chosen items can live in the Mishkon. Other items cannot connect or attach to what is designated as Holy, as Separated for the Mishkon and its purpose and its service.

Now this is a problem for some of us. We struggle understanding the designation of HOLY or SEPARATED! In Judaism we have many categories that The Lord has said are Holy and that The Lord has Separated. It is unfortunate when we fail to comprehend the elevated status of these items. In Judaism we take certain mundane items, things, articles, clothing, seforim, places, animals, birds, fish, people; and we separate them and bless them. These items become Holy! They become Sanctified to The Lord.

We are suppose to have a standard in Judaism. The Lord is the architect, the general contractor, the purchasing agent, the builder and the inspector. He determines how things are done. This week's parshat relates the material for the construction of the Mishkon along with the exact construction details.

ONLY CERTAIN MATERIALS are usable in the Mishkon. PERIOD! These materials were selected by God! They are the only ones that can be used! In Judaism things are done a certain way. Judaism is NOT one of these flexible mix and match kinds of religions! The same God who said ONLY THESE ITEMS CAN BE USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MISHKON IS THE SAME GOD WHO DEFINED JUDAISM!

God set a standard for Jews to live by and that is what we had better do! If we want God to live in our house then it has to have the material that God has prescribed. It has to be built according to God's directions. God will not live in a house built with unsanctified materials. God will not live in a house constructed in a way other than He has directed. This is one of many reasons why intermarriage is SO VERY WRONG FOR THE JEW! It's a mix and match of materials! God cannot sanctify the relationship! IT IS WRONG!

There was an individual who was employed to work on a particular project. He was the purchasing agent for this project. His responsibility was to acquire the material according to the required specifications. Years later that structure developed problems. An investigation was made. The investigator determined that the purchasing agent ordered an inferior product, a product not acceptable according to the required specifications. This man was terminated from that company and held responsible for his actions. Why is it that we can understand this, but we cannot understand 
God's instruction?

There was another man who was a general contractor on a project. He was responsible for building a custom home. He modified a room from the original plans by just six inches without telling anyone. He saved thousands of dollars because of his modification. This modification was not discovered until the owners were moving in. Their grand piano would not properly fit in its designated area. Why? A special area, a balcony overlooking the front room lounge designed just for this very expensive and impressive piano was modified. Can you imagine the frustration? Can you imagine the problem? The custom home was perfect except for... Years went into the planning and now...

Dear reader, God has made a plan that He expects to be followed. Our junky discards are unusable and unacceptable. God requires men and women with a GENEROUS HEART, people who will follow His instructions. God wants people who will not attempt any substitutions or modifications. Modifications by men and women will NOT WORK in God's plan. Otherwise they are no longer God's Plans.

Dear Reader this was a problem for Cain, the son of Adam and Eve. He brought spoiled flax seed as an offering. His offering was rejected. He was angry with God because his offering was rejected. Is this what we want? Rabbi Meir Zlotowitz and Rabbi Nosson Scherman, The Artscroll Tanach Series - Bereishis Vol. I(a) (Brooklyn, New York: Mesorah Publications, Ltd. 3rd Impression, 1989), p 144

תְּרוּמָה

Terumah means donation, a portion set aside

ת400 ר200 ו6 מ40 ה5 = 651


Terumah - With the Terumah we cannot give away everything. - We can only a portion. God's Command to contribute to building the Mishkan even precedes His Command to actually build the Mishkan.

Each gift that was brought to build the Mishkan elevated this world. Each gift of myself that I bring to The Lord elevates a spark of creation.


Silver was used to build the framework of the Mishkan. Silver as we all know has dross and has to be refined. So we refine the silver. We remove the impurities. It must be done His way. We want a Mishkan that is useable. We want a Mishkan where He can and will Dwell.


אִמְרָתִי

Ee Mih Raw Tee = Listen to my words

א1 מ40 ר200 ת400 י10 = 651

When we do want we want who is in charge? This is perhaps like following one of the many religions in the world. Our goal should be to obey the Commands of the Creator and to stop listening to the religions of the world.


Giving with a GENEROUS HEART is important. Giving a useable gift is also very important. God has specified what He can use. What does God need from us?

Exodus 28.3

וְאַתָּה תְּדַבֵּר אֶל־כָּל־חַכְמֵי־לֵב אֲשֶׁר מִלֵּאתִיו רוּחַ חָכְמָה וְעָשׂוּ אֶת־בִּגְדֵי אַהֲרֹן לְקַדְּשׁוֹ לְכַהֲנוֹ־לִי1:1


And you speak to all wise of heart Them that are completely filled with the Spirit of Wisdom And they shall make everything from Aleph to Tav of the clothes for Aaron To sanctify [to serve] as a Priest to Me.


Shemot / Exodus 19.6

וְאַתֶּם תִּהְיוּ־לִי מַמְלֶכֶת כֹּהֲנִים

וְגוֹי קָדוֹשׁ אֵלֶּה הַדְּבָרִים אֲשֶׁר

תְּדַבֵּר אֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל1:1


And you shall be to Me a Kingdom of Priests And a sanctified nation These are the Words that you shall say to B'nei Israel.


The purpose for comparing is to point out that just as the Kohan Gadol and the Kohanim are sanctified through clothing as stated in Shemot 28.3 so is every Jew because we are a kingdom of Priests to the entire world. There are several points to consider.


First is that Kal Israel is sanctified through clothing just as the Kohan Gadol and the Kohanim are. Our sanctified clothing is different from theirs.


Second is the concept of making sanctified clothing. Ha Torah Says, 'And they shall make everything from Aleph to Tav of the clothes for Aaron'. What does this mean? It means there is a plan, a pattern to follow and there is a goal. How does this apply to us? Are we to wear clothing like the Kohan Gadol or the Kohanim? What is the point?


The point is clothing is sanctified. Marriage is sanctified. Israel is sanctified. The Kohanim are sanctified. The Kohan Gadol is sanctified. Each of these are sanctified through clothing. One of the keys is 'speak to all wise of heart'. It is important to have direction with the clothes we cover ourselves with. Another point is that ONLY those who are completely filled with the Spirit of Wisdom can be selected to make this sanctified clothing. Making sanctified clothing require Chochmah / Wisdom and being over flowing with the Spirit of Wisdom... How many clothing designers and manufactures meet these requirements? Why are these important requirements?


Think about the importance of making Holy / Sanctified clothing. Only few have the wisdom to qualify. Why is wisdom so important? It is because those of us who are not as enlightened may make the wrong pattern or may select the wrong material. Remember we are forbidden to mix Shaatines, i.e. mix wool and linen within the same garment...


Why Jewish men should wear a Kippah and women should not...


Why Jewish men should wear a Tallit with Tzitzit and women should not...


Why our Sages Teach ladies should follow the custom of wearing a head covering... What types of head coverings...


Why our Sages Teach ladies should not wear mens clothing... What is the definition of men's clothing?


There is a point. I think the wise of heart can discuss and fully answer all questions regarding these issues. The Wise of heart are 'OVERFLOWING' with all that is necessary to answer our questions in these areas. Their answers are compelling.


Clothing is a material thing with a Spiritual purpose. When HaTorah Says these are the clothes you shall make we can begin to understand material things are sanctified for holy purposes...


Exodus 28.4

And these, the Clothes that he shall make:

Breast plate

and a Eiphod

and a robe

and a checkered undershirt

a turban

a sash-belt

And make sanctified garments For Aharon you brother And for the sons to serve Me as Priests.


Exodus 31.10

And everything from Aleph to Tav of the clothing of the service And everything from Aleph to Tav of the sanctified clothing for Aharon the Priest And everything from Aleph to Tav of the clothing the sons for Priests


Shemot / Exodus 28.5

And he, Moses went down from the Mountain To the people [B'nei Israel] And sanctified everything from Aleph to Tav of the people And they immersed [themselves] and their clothing


Bereisheit / Genesis 35.2

And Jacob said to his household And to all the people with him Get rid of everything from Aleph to Tav of these the foreign gods in your midst Purify yourselves and change your garments.


Yisaiah / Isaiah 61.3

To appoint to them that mourn in Tzion To give to them Beauty instead of dust / ashes Oil for Joy instead of mourning The Garment Mantel of Praise instead of the spirit of heaviness And to call themselves Leaders of the Righteousness who are planted by The Lord for Beauty / Glory.


בֶגֶד Beged, meaning Garment has the exact same letters as בָּגָד bagad, meaning to betray, to deceive. The difference is how clothing is designed and how clothing is worn.


My wife Brachah Rivkah says,


There is a physical function of clothing and a spiritual function of clothing.


Clothing can be a distraction.


Clothing is intended to be Spiritual.


Our clothes show how we Honor and Glorify The Lord.


Our clothing communicates messages to the world.


What message am I sending?


Marriage Clothing

A wife gives her husband a Tallit to wear during prayers this is a special sign that to many means he is married. This depends upon the custom. However the point is he covers himself with the cloth garment his wife has prepared or purchased for him. He secludes himself within the Tallit. He communes with the Creator within the Tallit. It is like the tallit is a garment that wraps around their marriage.


Adam and Chavah were enwrapped by the Glory of our Creator. This means they were in the center of Tiferet / Beauty. Adam was not on the left and Chavah was not on the right. They were in the exact center. This is the Spiritual place for marriage. This is correct. Spiritual attraction is the greatest. Physical attraction may draw us to an individual. Spiritual attraction is what keeps spouses engaged and in love with each other. Adam and Chavah were in the center of God's Glory. When they departed the center of God Glory is when each sinned. When they sinned they were outside of Tiferet...


The clothing of the kohanim and kohen gadol are called begadim.


The kohen gadol's primary function was to provide atonement. Each piece of his clothing provided atonement for specific sins. [See Exodus 28.4]


Only Aaron's garments are composed of blue, purple, scarlet, gold and twined thread. These are the same materials that comprise the curtains of the Mishkan.


On the Kohen Gadol's forehead was a plate engraved saying Holy to the Almighty. Ramban Says that the commandment to dress the High Priest in garments for glory (kavod) and splendor (tiferet) is not only to enhance the status of the priest himself, but also to enhance the Glory of God.


לְכַהֲנוֹ־לִי

Lee Chah Hah No - Lee - To Be A Priest to Me

To Serve Me

ל30 כ20 ה5 נ50 ו6 ל30 י10 = 151


אָקִים

Aw Keem - I will Establish

א1 ק100 י10 ם = 151


These Words are rare. לְכַהֲנוֹ־לִי Lee Chah Hah No - Lee, - To Be A Priest to Me To Serve Me occurs only three times in the Torah Portion of the Bible. אָקִים Aw Keem, - I will Establish occurs only twice in the Torah portion of the Bible. In the first, לְכַהֲנוֹ־לִי our Creator is Saying the office of High Priest is for the purpose of serving Me. In the second Word, אָקִים the Creator 'Established' the Covenant with Yitzchok / Isaac and the Office of Prophet.

Exodus 30:11

וַיְדַבֵּר יְהֹוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר:1


Exodus 30:11

And The Lord Said to Moses, Saying,


Exodus 30:12

כִּי תִשָּׂא אֶת־רֹאשׁ בְּנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל לִפְקֻדֵיהֶם וְנָתְנוּ אִישׁ כֹּפֶר נַפְשׁוֹ

לַיהוָֹה בִּפְקֹד אֹתָם וְלֹא־יִהְיֶה

בָהֶם נֶגֶף בִּפְקֹד אֹתָם: יג


Exodus 30:12

Take a head count of everything from Aleph to Tav of B'nei Israel to determine the amount each man shall give as an atonement pledge for his soul to The Lord when you count them and as a result there will be no plague among them when you count them.

We want to center on the Words אִישׁ כֹּפֶר Eesh Coh Fehr, meaning Man's Atonement Pledge. Man's Atonement Pledge is represented by a half shekel coin for each man above the age of twenty. Each man brought a half shekel as an atonement for his soul. אִישׁ כֹּפֶר Eesh Coh Fehr, is the Gematria of 611. The Gematria for תּוֹרָה Torah / Law, meaning the 613 Commands of Ha Torah of the Law is also 611. This tells us that obeying, i.e. observing the 613 Commands of Ha Torah is and atonement for our soul.


תּוֹרָה

Torah / Law, meaning the 613 Commands of Ha Torah of the Law.

ת400 ו6 ר200 ה5 = 611


אִישׁ כֹּפֶר

Eesh Coh Fehr

means - Man's Atonement Pledge

א1 י10 ש300 כ20 פ80 ר200 = 611


When man follows Ha Torah, Ha Torah atones for man. How do we know this? The Gematrias are the same. The Torah is Perfect. The Torah can and does atone for man. So in the Observance of Torah we see atonement for man.


May each of us be Blessed with the atonement of Torah.

Exodus 35.3

לֹא־תְבַעֲרוּ אֵשׁ בְּכֹל משְׁבֹתֵיכֶם בְּיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת1:1


Exodus 35.3

You shall not kindle fire in any of your dwelling places on the Sabbath day.

Fire is both a representation of man's technological mastery and as a symbol of man and Woman's emotional drives


Individuals must practice how to control their technological advances as we will discuss in Chapter twelve. There we will discuss controlling our technological advances. In this chapter we want to focus of individual responsibilities of controlling emotions, and desires and how it is accomplished through marriage.


An individual that is single is not benefiting from the lessons of marriage. Marriage is a union between a man and a woman. Marriage is called 'Holy Matrimony'. The man is separated to his wife and the wife is separated to her husband. NOTHING is suppose to come between them all the days of their lives, Kaw Naw Nah Haw Raw!!


The goal of 'Holy Matrimony' is to learn how to live in peace and harmony with another individual that is the opposite of you. Both learn to share. Both learn how to cooperate. Both learn how to function as a unit. Both learn how to successfully raise children together. Both learn how to worship together. Both learn how to observe Sabbath and Holy Days together. Then there are the relative issues. They are complex also. Both learn how to get along with their spouses relatives. Husband and wife do this their entire lives while living near a very hot bed, FIRE! Remember the old saying, Don't play with FIRE? Remember old Smoky the bear? Only you can prevent Forest Fires!


In marriage relationships a אִישׁ husband has his own FIRE and a אִשָּׁה wife has her own FIRE.


אִיש

The Letter Yud i.e. the center Letter for אִישׁ meaning man represents strength. The Letter Yud is the first Letter of the Lord's Holy Name. The Lord Placed the Letter Yud between the Aleph and The Shin so man would have the possibility of peace and happiness. The Letter Yud stands next to the Letter Hey. The Letter Yud represents the Ten Commandments that expand out to all 613 Commands of the Torah. Man is suppose to follow the Commands that pertain to him. In addition the Letter Yud represents strength, the Gevurah of man. Man is supposed to use his strength wisely, i.e. to keep the Letter Aleph and the Letter Shin apart. Use the Yud to prevent fire. Otherwise there is fire. God, please help us. It takes a real man to use the Letter Yud wisely to avoid hot burning fire.. God Assist us please. Man was designed to walk a tight line. Man was designed to walk on egg shells.


אִשָּׁה

The Letter Hey diffuses the fire... The Letter Hey controls the fire. The Letter Hey is the second Letter in the Holy Name of the Lord. The Letter Hey stands next to the Letter Yud. The Letter Hey is represents the Five Books of the Torah. Inside the Five Books are the 613 Commands. The wife is required to follow the Commands that pertain to her. So to speak, the fire has to pass through the Divine Space, i.e the 613 Commands, the Five Books.. In other words the fire is calmed and supervised with kindness when it passes through the Letter Hey, Divine Supervision. The fire is tempered. A wife was designed to walk on a tight wire. A wife was designed to walk on egg shells.


Dear Reader this is how our Creator designed the man and the woman. Good relationships learn how to avoid fire while having plenty of warmth for comfort. We have this potential for fire but we don't have to have fire.


The Letter Aleph represents God's Name. The Letter Aleph represents one thousand. The Letter Aleph is the first Letter for both אִיש Man and אִשָּׁה Woman. When the Letter Aleph is spelled out the Gematria is 111. This tell us God is 1. God is 1. God is 1.


The Letter Shin שָׁלוֹם means peace. The Letter Shin also represents שַׁדַּי The Almighty One. Before one enters their home or their bedroom a Mezuzah is attached to the door frame. On the Mezuzah are the Letters reminding the Husband and wife שַׁדַּי The Almighty One. When the Letter Shin is spelled out the Gematria is 360. This tells us that the relationship between a husband and wife needs to be a complete circle. There are no corners. This represents the eternal relationship of their marriage. When the Aleph (111) and the Shin (360)_ are joined side by side properly they combine to represent מְלֵאֹת Mih Lay Oot meaning Complete or Fullness.


מְלֵאֹת

Mih Lay Oot

means Complete or Fullness.

מ40 ל30 א1 ת400 = 471


אֶלֶף

Aleph

One or One Thousand - Represents God

א1 ל30 ף80 = 111


שין

Shin

The Almighty One

ש300 י10 ן50 = 360


Total 111 + 360 = 111 + 360 = 471


Husband and wife are only complete and full with each being in proper balance.

In the parshat this week, our attention is drawn to those who are not the planners of the Mishkon or the contractors or even the laborers. Yet, they are there. They are very important and their contribution is also important.


Frequently we receive mail from readers. Ocassionally a reader writes about feeling left out because they are not Jewish. And as a result, God Willing, I have written two Books entitled Would You Like To Be Jewish and the other is entitled God's Plan From the Beginning. I am excited! Kaw Naw Nah Hah Raw! They help each of us better connect with Judaism regardless of our background.

On one occasion a lady wrote in an E-mail that even the gentiles are God's Children and that God Created them also. This is certainly true. The world we live in does have many members and many religions. Her note was an excellent reminder for to be considerate, mindful and careful of others. We are not to blind ourselves of our neighbors or their important contribution. Yet, one should understand that jewishpath.org, jewishpath.com and jewishlink.net are Jewish websites with the goal of assisting those who are Jewish. However we also have bnti.us - B'nai Noach Torah Institute, LLC and 7commands.com which are designed for everyone to be a part.

In this Parshat we learn that the offerings given to build the Mishkon were requested of B'nei Israel, the Nation of the Covenant. These were offerings were from people who were commanded to be 'Shomar Sabbath', meaning people who guard the Sabbath. This they sanctified the Sabbath. They set aside Sabbath as Commanded in the Torah. They did their work on the other six days. Now it was from these people that The Lord commanded Moses to request the Terumah offering. What that meant was that God wanted the Mishkon, His future dwelling place, to be built from contributions by His people, B'nei Israel, who were COMMANDED TO BE separated from the rest of the world. That does not imply that the rest of the world is not important. Yet, on the other hand, it does draw a very straight line.

There is a difference between Jewish beliefs and beliefs of other 730 religions with some 35,000 splinter religions of the present world. In Judaism we, the Jewish people, are Commanded by God to follow the Torah. MSome of us do not. Gentiles are commanded by God to observe a portion of the Torah, I.e. the Seven Commandments which expand into many more Commands. Some observe these Commands and other do not know they exist.

Now if you're building a house, who do you want to build it? Do you want people who are observant to your Commandments or people who don't know they exist? Do you want people who identify with your ideology or people who object? Do you want people who live Judaism second by second or people who are acquainted with it? The issue here is simple, God chose B'nei Israel to build his Mishkon because they were separated to Him.

Originally God offered His Torah to the other sixty-nine nations of the world. They rejected His Torah. Only Kal Israel wholeheartedly accepted The Lord's Torah. So why would The Lord include nations that rejected Him in the building of his Mishkon?

Dear Reader, the fact is that you and many besides you want to be Jewish is for a reason. You relate to the Commands. You relate to the call. Chances are you will convert. Chances are you will be Jewish. Chances are you were called from before the beginning to be Jewish.

On the other hand, the fact is that often Jews feel somewhat left out, too. We are not the Levium who work in close contact with the Mishkon or the coming Beit Ha Mikdosh. We do not set it up or take it down. We do not work in the courtyards. Yet the fact is that even the Levium who have this close contact may also feel somewhat left out because the Kohanim are the ones who offer the blessings, light the Menorah and offer sacrifices. Yet the Kohanim could feel a little left out because only one of them can be the Kohen Godal, the High Priest.

My dear readers, our responsibilities are different, our positions of service are different, but we all are important to The Lord. Listen, originally from the beginning Adam was the High Priest. Adam was the ruler. Noach was a High Priest. Shem also known as Malki Zedek / King of Righteousness was High Priest. Later the priesthood was the responsibility of the tribal heads. It was because of the failings by the tribal leaders of B'nai Israel at the golden calf incident. That The Lord Separated the tribe of Levi unto Him and the house of Aaron as the Kohanim and Aaron himself as the Kohen Godal.

The tribal leaders {the former priests} had feelings about this matter, yet they understood that the tribe of Levi and the house of Aaron stood out in their righteousness. On the other hand, there were some righteous malcontents, so to speak, in Parshat Korach who were unhappy with The Lord's selections of Moses and Aaron, etc.

So what is the point to all of this? God has not left any of us out. There is a place for each of us!!We may feel left out but that is only our perception. We can connect to each other. We can connect to the Torah. We can connect to The Lord. Even though millions of names are not included in the building of the Mishkon, they are not left out. This being the situation, we do not read of anyone feeling left out during the building of the Mishkon. We do not read of contention. We do not hear of ego problems. B'nei Israel was focused on constructing the Mishkon built 100 percent right the first time around. There was a positive attitude that existed.

Rabbi Eli Munk discusses the importance of everyone. He asks,

"Why was a special accounting given for the silver hooks for the pillars {in Exodus 38:28}? Would not one total figure for all the silver used in the Tabernacle have sufficed? According to the Midrash, when Moses initially rendered his accounts to the people, he left out 1,775 shekels used in making the hooks for the pillars, for they were not visible. It was only after he became concerned that the Israelites might suspect him of wrong doing about the accounts, that with The Lord's help he happened to look at the pillars and was reminded of the hooks.

"This Midrash, explains Chasam Sofer, is referring to the fact that although the core of the nation of Israel comprised 600,000 righteous men, there were many worthy Israelites outside of this core, including women, children, and converts {over two and one half million}. Moses was concerned about how he would inspire holiness in those who did not belong to this nucleus {of 600,000}. The Lord then drew his attention to the deeper meaning of the hooks of the pillars, to show him that those who are not part of the core are to be hooked firmly onto the pillars, i.e., to the righteous, who form its inner core.

Vaw Veem, means hooks. The Letter ו Vav appears twice in the word Vaw Veem, hooks, and is shaped like a hook; similarly, the Letter ו Vav often serves as a coordinating conjunction / a connecting letter, in which case it attaches two Words etc.

The hooks signify "EVERYONE IS IMPORTANT." Those in the center of the core, those outside the core and those who are not Jewish. Everyone is important! Yet that does not mean everyone is the same. The hooks also symbolize a future time spoken of by the Novie Zechariah.

Zechariah 8:23

Thus said The Lord, Master of Legions: In those days it will happen that ten men, of all [different] languages of the nations, will take hold, they will take hold of the corner of the garment of a Jewish man, saying, 'Let us go with you, for we have heard God is with you.

Non Jews will take hold of the tzitzit on the corner of a Jewish man's tallit. Zechariah Teaches us that Jews will be clearly distinguished as Jews. Part of that distinguishing factor will be our tallit, our clothing... Non Jews will latch on... will hook on... will connect with the 'RIGHTEOUS JEW.' Many of us have a ways to go to reach that point.... If we continue to try we will eventually get there.

The Gematria for Vaw Vem is 62. This is also the Gematria of Bayn, meaning between.


וָוִים

Vaw Veem - hooks

ו6 ו6 י10 ם40 = 62

בֵּין

Bayn - Divided

ב2 י10 ן50 = 62


Genesis 1:4

'God, divided / separated between the light and the darkness...'

Genesis 17:7

'I will establish my covenant between Me and you and between your descendants after you throughout their generations for an eternal covenant, to be a God to you, and to your descendants after you.'

Exodus 31:12,13

'B'nei Israel shall guard {preserve} the Sabbath, to maintain the Sabbath for their generations {including the 21st century} as an everlasting covenant 
between Me and between B'nei Israel it is an everlasting sign; for in six days The Lord Made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day, He abstained from work and He rested.'

So on one hand Bayn separates between light and dark and on the other hand Bayn connects between The Lord and B'nei Israel.

Let's notice how the Letter Vav connects the Holy Scriptures together.

The Gematria Mispar Godal of Vaw Veem is 622 which is the Gematria for
Bih Ree Tee, meaning "Covenant" and also for Ber Chot, meaning blessing. Those of the Covenant who contributed out of the generosity of their heart to the products for the construction of the Mishkon even though they were not of the central core received their special blessing.



Exodus 39:43

'...and Moses Blessed them.'

וָוִים

Vaw Veem - hooks

ב2 ר200 י10 ת400 י10 = 622

בִּרְכַּת

ב2 ר200 כ20 ת400 = 622

The righteous core received their blessing... and those connected to them received their blessing and those connected to them received their blessing.... etc. {this connection is NOT through intermarriage}

The connection comes from The Lord.

As we complete this time of Parshot study together my prayer is that we each are enriched and will desire to share what we have learned with others and to learn together in another book or course.
