The tension between physical matter and “Nashama” (Soul) is deep and difficult. Yet the souls cannot be defeated. Even if the material forces are relentless. This is because the essence of our beings, our “Nashamot” cannot be damaged. It just becomes covered, hidden from us. By our errors and lacking in our divine service. . The beginning of all “tikun” (fixing) , reconstruction and healing is awareness of the problem. the essence of our beings, our “Nashamot” cannot be damaged. It just becomes covered, hidden from us. By our errors and lacking in our divine service.

ARE WE RUNNING OUT OF TIME– WILL YOU BE READY ?
Its erev shabot. With a simple arithmetical calculation one can see that we are now in the period of Erev Shabbot afternoon. Just as every week has an erev Shabbos when we prepare for Shabbos, so does the world have its Erev Shabbot when the world prepares for it’s own Shabbot. Just as the world was created in six days, with the seventh day being Shabbot. so this world exists for six thousand years, with the seventh thousandth year (called the seventh millennia) being the Shabbot of the world. With a simple arithmetical calculation one can see that we are now in the period of Erev Shabbot afternoon. The sixth day started in 1240 C.E. with the first 500 years being the night time period, since in Judaism the evening precedes the morning. The morning started in 1740 c.e. and noon time was 1990 C.E. The secular year 1740 and there about marks the introduction of new philosophies of equality. 1740 C.E. corresponds to the year 5500 from creation, which is actually the dawn of the Erev Shabbot of the world. What does this mean? We Know, Moshiach ben David will not come until all the measurements are equal (Sanhedrin 98). The Vilna Gaon explained this to mean that before Moshiach ben David will come there must be both economic and social equality (see Kol HaTor pp. 34-35). In other words, equality, is a prerequisite for the coming of Moshiach ben David, and it must be in the world before Moshiach ben David comes. Hashem therefore brought these emanations of the redemptive powers, amongst them liberty and equality, into the world. They are meant to be used to make a perfected society as portrayed by shmittah and yovel which alleviate poverty and homelessness. Just as weekly we must prepare for Shabbot, so the Zohar (Parshas VeYera p.117) says that in the world’s Erev Shabbot, the world is also preparing for it’s Shabbot, which is in the Seventh Millenia. There is a lot to do before Shobot. According to Targum Yonoson, Yeshayahu informs us that if we are meritorious we will be the ones to welcome Moshiach who will only afterwards appear to the rest of the world MORE :
THE GOD’S SUGGESTED READING in the torah for this week a double dose parsha vayachal and parsha pikudey !
In last weeks parsha GOD states “ The Children of Isreal shall keep the Shabot throughout there generations”. After the giving of the Shabot Moses is given the 2 tablets of the law written by the finger of Elohem”e. In the beginning of this weeks parsha the commandment is given “ six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest. It shall be a holy day to you. Whoever works on this day shall surely be put to death”. How can this be as people are unfortunately working on Shabot, and they are still walking around ?.
Its known that on the Holy Shobot there is revealed more Chuchmah (Wisdom-creative inspiration). It says “Chuchmah enlivens its owner”, and the source of this חיים (life force) is שכל .1 (intellect) We draw from The main aspect of life is in Chuchmah.2 All מזון (nourishment) and flow is from Bina (Divine understanding), but nourishment of the upper King is from Chuchmah. From here is heaven nourished as it says ”Chuchmah makes alive its owner”, and the land to flow in Malchut of
בן ישי (King David) Who is בן יש י(son who has י (?, י refers to Teferet (balence-harmony).3 Decent from Atzilut (world of Divine creativity) to Bria (world of Divine Understanding) is always called death.4 When a man transgresses any of the prohibitions of the Torah they receive death from heaven and are cut off. 5 The limbs of a man correspond to branches of the supernal markava (chariot). The malvush (garment) of Canneset Yisrael is in 248 limbs of Atzilut which are angels. There are 248 lights in Adam elyon (supernal man) from 248 mitzvot (affirmative Biblical commandments). So that by each of the 248 mitzvot there does not rule the tuma (impurity) of death (on its cooresponding limb). All the 248 positive commandments are masculine being Teferet that is drawn from Chesed. 365 days of the year come in from the 365 branches of din (judgment) of the supernal tree. They are from the aspect of פחד (great fear) drawn from the feminine side, so women are obligated to guard all 365 prohibitions of the Torah. Prohibitions are from din (stern judgment). So do not transgress the prohibitions. 6 Not eating the atz dat tov and rah (tree of good and evil) are 365 prohibitions. They are like sexual offenses, places of ruling of the chizonim (the other side). One who enters the gan and comes unto the chizonim there, there is aroused unto him supernal givurot (forces of severity-restriction). They flow to the malchut (Divine presence), and this disturbs minuchah (pleasant rest), givurot flow to the chitzonim. When a man comes unto these, death rules upon him, God forbid. The atz dat tov (tree of good) is mitzvot and that which is permitted. The mitzvot are atz Chyim (tree of life), that which is permitted is atz dat tov. 7 “Atz Chyim” is Z’a (source of Ruach-Emotional soul), “Atz Dat” is Nakavah (source of the animal soul called Nefesh). One is life the other is death. Whoever involves themselves with them, but gives more consideration to Nakavah when She is separate from Z”a causes to himself death in this world and “olam Haba” (world to come).8 sedek” is “Atz Chym” it arrouses against death, and delivers those attached to it.9

THE YEAR IS 5777 OF THE BIBLICAL CALANDER , THE 5777th VERSE OF THE TORAH IS ” The sword outside, and terror inside, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.”(DEUT 32:25) ?
Here are some biblical phrases that equal תשע”ז 777
. אַל־נָ֥א אַחַ֖י תָּרֵֽעוּ
אֶל־יְקֹוָ֖ק לֵאמֹ֑ר אֵ֕ל נָ֛א רְפָ֥א נָ֖א לָֽהּ

The relationship between the Creator and the creatures effects the life of men in a very tangible manner whether they recognize this or not. It is embedded in the foundation of the reality we live in. The fantasy and delusion is not seeing this and recognizing this effect of providence in our lives. The God effects changes in our lives according to strict and well defined rules, found in and alluded to in the Bible. These laws are discovered by anyone who climbs the spiritual ladder, and they come to know it by experiences in their life. Reading the Holy books brings this Divine supervision closer and makes one more aware of it.
Each of us is different and unique, but we all are bound to comply with the same Divine rules that underlie nature by Divine influence. We all have the chance to advance from darkness and confusion to clarity and Divine vision.
To help us in this mission of going from darkness to light of consciousness the God has given us Divine names as found in the prayers we have received from our prophets. Yet this matter is not simple and like all good things take considerable effort to learn how they work.
Eventually following this Divine rules, and learning how to work the Divine names in the meditation of pray yields spiritual revelation, the creature feels the Creator Who gives them perfect bliss, ultimately.
But before this occurs one is like a person who is suffering from an illness. First they must discover they are ill. Only then can he begin his healing, making their Divine correction called “tikun”. By this God who acts as the Divine physician of the soul helps us fix our damages to our souls. The God directs into our lives the proper medicine to heal us from our errors and lacking, until one attains health and happiness. Then one can in a much greater way appreciate the greatness and the kindness of the God.
The ability to join all we do in one direction, in order to delight the Creator, gives us the ability to find genuine delight under any condition, under any circumstances. As under any situation we remember what we live for and Whom we work for.
We are currently in the heel (end) phase of the six thousand year cycle, its now 5777. We are moving closer to the realization of messianic consciousness. When much evil will be destroyed we will be in the the new messianic era. Do your part !
Every thought speech action or in action either pulls us closer to the God or pushes us farther away there is no neutral ground. We are continuously surrounded by angels and demons which will punish or reward us according to every thought, speech, action or in action we do now or later in this world or the next.
Channel one’s love and other emotions to serve the Creator !
Betzalel, knew how to permutate the letters, through them were created the heavens and the earth !
Israel our nation numbering millions of people all saw the miracles of the Egyptian plagues, splitting of the sea, revelation at Sinai, getting food from the sky and water from a rock. No nation ever claimed or will ever claim that these types of miracles had happened to their ancestors this is something that is beyond this world.
The Torah was given Yisrael from God. Its like no other book ever written. The Torah seems like a collection of historical stories about ancient Jew. In order to understand what this book really is one needs to understand what is encoded in it. To do this we must know Kabbalah. The most unassuming passages of Torah on might think have little significance actually contain the deepest hints to supernal secrets. The more simple and uninformative the passages more likely contain profound secrets of Kabalah !
Obviously every letter of the Torah is holy and infinitely deep !

It could not be all the “mitzvos” commandments were simply invented by a group of Jewish leaders. The people would never accept on themselves, Keeping “kosher” , having such strict dietary laws, having to wear “Tefillin” every day or prohibitions on premarital sex had they not known that their fathers also did this. They would have asked: “Why are you telling us that our entire nation experienced all these miracles? We have never heard anything like this except from you. Did the Exodus from Egypt take place in a secret?”
In fact this is the reason that the other religions start from a person who supposedly experienced a revelation. There is no religion in the world that claims a national experience similar to ours, as the Torah says (Devarim 4:33): “Did a nation ever hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard …” In particular the two large religions that spread over the world: Christianity and Islam both claim that the Jewish people received the Torah at Mount Sinai! Why wouldn’t these religions also claim that they began with a Divine Revelation witnessed by millions? The reason is simple: nobody can invent such a thing, and no nation would accept such belief system and its’ commandments had they not experienced these events personally.
Man feels distance from Hashem (The God) when one only follows their own physical desires that the opposite side to the God’s Holiness. But when one chooses to begin the rectification of their sins. They may then become worthy of hearing God’s voice that to them from the depth of their soul, called the “small still voice”. This is through the Mitzvot (Divine commandments) they refine the nature of Man, removing him from his pure physical selfish desires. It is therefore written “listen closely to His Mitzvot and guard His Statutes”

UPDATED March 2017
Purim and Redemptionבס”ד
Purim is pretty important, it says in gemora Magilla that 48 prophets and 70 elders including Chagi, Zacharia and Malachi enacted the Holiday of Purim. The day of Purim is likened to the day we received the Torah. In Masechet Shabat it says the Jews experienced the miracle of Purim with such happiness and ecstasy that they took upon themselves to keep the Torah with a whole heart, as the verse says ”they received and established”, as though they were standing on Mt. Sinai. Supernal Purim is the idea of eating the Atz Dat (Tree of Knowledge) and its tikun (correction). Haman is in the Torah as it says ” המן האץ you have been commanded not to eat “. Ester is in the Torah as it says :
ואנכי הסתר אסתיר פני ביום ההוא על כל הרעה אשר עשה כי פנה אל אלהים אחרים
In Gemora Sanhedrin we learn that from Purim we begin to discuss the laws of Pessach as is stated by Rabba to Rabbi Nachman. Rabbi Nachman of Bresslov teaches that Purim itself is a preparation for Pessach, and it protects us from Chumatz on Pessach. The Aor Ganuz teaches that in purim there changes עינוי (troubles) to עונג (pleasure) as פור is “Rachamim” and forgiveness which is made in Purim.
To understand this let us look at the mitzvot of Purim. The Mitzvot of Purim may seem less Mystical than waving the Lulov on Succoth or blowing the shofar on Rosh Hashanah, or the Seder of Pessach, but it must be understood that the Mitzvot of Purim such as Hearing the Maggilla, sending gifts to friends, sending gifts to the poor, Having a meal and getting drunk are like the nature of Purim itself, only disguised as something Natural, but being the will of Hakodesh Baruch Hu arise from a lofty place. These mitzvot which seem so common every day things as giving gifts like Purim itself come to remind us of the hidden face of GOD, that happens around us continually. It is known that there is no chance occurrences. GOD controls everything there is, and all that occurs. We see this when looking closely at each of the commandments. How blind are the eyes of men to the wonders of GOD. So much having to do with Purim seems to be hidden, from the absence of Hashem’s name in the Megilla, to the costumes, the very name of Esther, in Hebrew comes from the root “hidden”. Esther אסתר, when spelled backwards is “Rosha teva” [the initials of the words for] of “rosh” (head) , “toch” [middle], and “sof “ [end], together with the letter alef, spell Esther [backwards]. Purim is the holiday of hidden things, the invisible hand of God, whose light is hidden throughout the story but is recognized only by those who know to discern it. Like in our own lives ! The “Aor Ganuz” writes that in Machut is called Ester. Here is remembered “Brit Olam”. From this they quickly return to Hashem. The deliverance of Purim took place through a series of seeming like accidents or coincidences, which were really the hidden working of the Divine hand. Mordecai, was moved by great piety , was very religious and felt a strong sense of responsibility and caring for his community and people. And through all this, so had to refuse to submit to flesh and blood whatever the consequences. God brought about a miraculous redemption in the guise of nature. It seems Purim reminds us of the subconscious subliminal spiritual forces active in the lives of men that continually create, form, shape all that is.
There is a custom to dress up in a costume on Purim. There are those who say this costume appears like one’s “yetzer hora” (evil inclination). Hopefully by recognizing the evil in oneself one will then actively work to defeat it. Then Purim becomes what it’s meant to be a day of real “teshuva” (repentance). By recognizing the costume that our evil inclination hides in we can come back to our real self, which is the Godly soul that the costume conceals.
THE MITZVA OF
DRINKING ON PURIM
Chatam Sofer writes that the idea of drinking on Purim is to repair the drinking that was done by the Jews at the party of Achashverosh, which led to other sins. The Abuderhem writes that the reason we are commanded to drink wine on Purim is to remember all the miracles that were brought about through drinking at parties during the Purim story. Firstly, Vashti’s downfall came due to all the wine Achashverosh drank, then, when Esther replaced her, Achashverosh made another party. Most importantly , Haman’s downfall came during the party that Esther had prepared for him and Achashverosh. Another important lesson of the Purim story is the Memuchan (sages say is Haman) planned for his own daughter should become queen at the cost of Vashti’s demise. However like all the plans of men they can “back fire” and it did by Esther being placed on the throne of Persia instead of his daughter. Haman created the problem and its solution.
We need to shake off all of the accepted certainties that conceal the truth from us. The sages teach “when wine enters secrets emerge” (eiruvin). In our generation we very much need our inner secrets to come out and be revealed.
The Rebbe of Kotzk writes that drinking wine on Purim is a segulah for prayers to be accepted. The Yigael Ya’acov brings down from his rebbe, the Imre Yoseph of Spinka that by drinking wine on Purim we bring the Geula closer and the building of the Beit Hamikdash. The Yitav Lev says that drinking wine on Purim is a segulah for Parnasah, that they will not have to chase after their livelihood, but that rather, it will come easily to them.The holy Rebbe of Zidichov says that drinking on Purim is considered as great as fasting from Shabbat to Shabbat, an entire week without food or drink!
Make no mistake though Purim is not just a drinking party. The Mitzvah is to drink wine. The Gr”a in his Safer Hachalot teaches. There is wine that is called “guarded”, it being wine that brings the drunkenness of “Olam Haba” (the world to come). It being wine of Bina (Divine understanding). This is a unique kind of drinking. We are describing being drunk on Bina (Divine understanding). Rabbi Shabatto teaches that Mordichy is the Yesod of Chuchmah therefore on Purim it descends to the world. Dat does not have power to receive this light. For this reason we drink wine to remove this blockage of Dat so it is a obligation to לבסמי on Purim till one “Does not Know”. Only then can the light of this chuchmah enter intellect (and wont be blocked by your current level of Dat. We are obligated to לבסמי פוריה This is the secret of love between Yisrael and their Father in Heaven. As love comes forth from Chuchmah and fear from Bina. From understanding one comes to fear and he who is a “Chuchum” (from Chuchmah) will love the God. YomKiPurim is in Bina. On the day of Purim illuminates Chuchmah, even if wine is the aspect of Bina. As the wine of Purim reaches up to the level of Chuchmah and even higher till the aspect דלא ידע which is the source of Bria. Even if Purim is a day of Chuchmah which is usually connected to oil, we drink wine. As we don’t have the power to comprehend this Chuchmah except by Bina which corresponds to Wine. In Purim from the Magilla and wine we are connected to Bina in the sefira of Chuchmah where Bina and Chuchmah are joined in the secret of אהבה (Love). In the future all the books of the prophets will be nullified except Migillat Ester. As the books of the prophets are in the aspect of fear but the future will be in the aspect of love. So then we will still read from Ester and the Song of Songs. Purim is on a very high level. Purim is unique as it is of the time of the future redemption. As we have said after All the books of the Prophets and Writings except the “Song of Songs” will become obsolete because the troubles which they speak of will no longer be relevant in the time of the Messiah but the Megilat Ester we will still read… as it says “and the days of Purim shall not depart from among the Jews and their memory shall not cease from their descendants.'” (Ester 9:28)
The Jews of ancient Persia celebrated their stunning victory over their enemies who the very next day had legal authority to kill them all. This victory did not come about through the Hands of Heaven. No, every Jew had to get his hands “dirty” and fight and kill those who sought to fight and kill them. The real miracle was two-fold. The first miracle was that a new law was instituted that gave the Jews first crack at their enemies. However, this first miracle alone would not have saved anyone. The second miracle required the Jews of those days and in those lands to actually rise up, arm themselves and physically seek out, fight with and kill those who wanted to kill them. If any of their enemies were to survive and live to see the day of the 14th of Adar, then the law would have been of their side to kill Jews with impunity. Therefore the Jews of the time had to be very thorough to make a quick finish of all their enemies. For the Jews of those days to rise up, pick up arms and actually shed blood, even the blood of those who so clearly wanted to kill them, was a great miracle. An ever greater and often over looked miracle is that Achashveirosh hated the Jews as much as Haman did for the king, Achashveirosh to change his mind and not kill the Jews is very unusual miracle . For a number of reasons. Achashveirosh loved money. He held his 180 day party because he wanted to show off his great wealth, which was something new to King Achashveirosh as he inherited all his wealth by marrying Vashti who was the daughter of the king of Bavel, Nebuchadnezzar. For Achashveirosh to change his mind and not take Haman’s money and not kill the Jew who he did hate is rather strange. Sometimes man’s free will is taken. Esther had seen what had been done to Vashti and so she knew king, Achashveirosh was an unpredictable fool and that her life therefore constantly hung by a thread, so she was not with him willingly. Mordechai was told his remembrance in the Kings book of Chronicles had been erased. Haman had already endeavored to have it erased, but afterwards the angel Gavriel rewrote it.The angel Gabriel has “ inkwell of the scribe at his waist.”
The “Aor Ganuz” writes that Easter is described as going in to the king not according to “dat”, meaning not at the time she was invited and the penalty for this is death. But Ester put the life of all the Jewish people before her own. She entered before King Achasvarosh not according to “dat”, meaning She entered without Her Husband Teferet “In your right hand is אש דת to your people. The intent of the force of “gulut” is to nullify the Torah. This caused the destruction of the first and 2nd Temple. Ester alludes to the Shechinah in “galut”. The “emuna” of Malchut the nations do not come upon. So Achashvarosh could not come near Ester. One must guard themselves from the nations in “galut”, guarding the Shechinah in “galut”, with her children, the House of Yisrael. This is the secret of ” I am with my people in their sufferings. The nations can not come close to this “kavanah”, of the Malchut. So in the place of Ester a Demon would come and visit Achashvarosh in the place of Ester, it had the appearance of Ester. In Isiah it says ” I will not give my Glory to another”. Mordichy knew by “Ruach Hakodesh that God was guarding Ester from Haman and King Achashvarosh.
Rav Shabato teaches Purim is not called day of the miracle but it is a holiday named after the lot, the גורל. of Haman. Purim in not celebrated on the day of its miracle as that began on the 16th of Nisson when Haman was hung. The main thing was on the 23 of Sivan when the king’s command to kill all the Jews was nullified, by giving the Jews permission to kill their enemies. On the 13th and 14th of Adar was made the holiday of Purim. If the miracle was the main thing the Holiday would would have been set for the 23rd of Sivan, but we celebrate Purim on the 13th and 14th of Adar to commemorate the victory over Amalak. The “Aor Ganuz” writes that in the Book of Ester is the secret of who causes the poverty of the Shechinah during exile. Haman was hung on the scaffold he himself had built (they do it to themselves or we built him up by our sins and then by “teshuva” destroyed him. depends how you look at it.).
The Magilla was given by “Ruach HaKodesh” (the Holy Spirit), Purim does not commemorate a miracle but divine providence and “teshuva” from love. The miracle was made in Sivan and on that day there is no holiday at all. They killed Amalak and took no spoil as one cannot benefit from Amalak. Amalak says “There is no individual providence in the world”. That why its written by the incident with Amalak when the Hebrews left Egypt “אשר קרך בדרך” (by chance on the way). This is the “klippa” of Amalak. SO THEY NEED TO BE BLOTTED OUT !.
On Purim we do the mitzvah of sadakah of giving gifts to the poor. And we have the mitzvah of sending “shalach manot” (small packages of Food). These may be small offerings, but they do have a great effect. Similar is the mitzvah of the 1/2 Shekel every Jew has to contribute to the Temple in Adar. This seems to be the idea that a little can go a long way. The Oar Hachyim tells us that the 1/2 Shekal is not a Physical transaction but works in the Spiritual worlds. It removes the rule of the stars and constellations from upon Yisrael.
The numerical value, Gematria, of shekalim is 480, the same as the number for lilly ‘wife’ of the Samech Mem (Devil). We conclude the ’weeks of shovavim’, which is a tikun (repair) for the sin of the brit milah. (Holy covenant) This repair, subdues the negative forces, and the completion of the fixing is through the giving of the Half Shekel. The “Aor Ganuz” writes that in all places one guards the “Brit Kodesh” the God guards them, as Moshe was in צל שד”י and as Ester was protected from Achashvarosh by God.
Concerning giving gifts to the poor “Sadakah” its effects are so far reaching as R. Yeshua Ben Lavi teaches that He who continually gives sadakah will have wise wealthy children well versed in “Agada”. R. Eleazer Ben Yosi Teaches sadakah and deeds of kindness bring peace and good understanding between Yisrael and there father in heaven. R. Yuhuda teaches that sadakah delivers from death. Who can list the merits of a single mitzvah ? In conclusion R. Yochanan says in the name of R. Shimon Bar Yochi that great is the merit of supporting the needy, it brings the resurrection before its time. Charity ”Sadakah” in Hebrew ”the holy tongue” comes from the root ”sedek” (righteousness). The Zohar teaches that in Aramaic, language of the Talmud, Charity is ”zchuta” which is the same word for ”merit”. Its degree of merit is according to the needs of the recipients of the charity. Charity is a greater Mitzvah when given where its needed to the needy. Instead of giving Charity to a institution where the majority of the money donated goes into an administrator’s pocket, and only a very small amount of the donation actually helps anyone. Its better to give charity to the needy where its needed, and this truly has great merit before heaven. This is why it is a obligation to send gifts specifically to 2 poor people on Purim. We see here a little of how far reaching the effects of giving to a poor person goes.
The king Achashvarosh made a huge feast for his subjects 30,000 Jewish people attended, even if Mordichy warned them not to go. This meal angered GOD greatly. The sages say this meal got the Jews closer to the gentiles and their ways and farther from GOD. It was shortly after this that there arose Haman with his evil plans. Easter’s meal with Haman and King Achasvarosh Was direct atonement for the evil meal. So to we are commanded to make a feast during the day specifically on Purim. For no other holiday are we given a special command concerning only its day meal. This draws attention to the correction in the world made by the afternoon ”sudah” (meal) of Purim. This mitzvah atones for the sins that lead to the evil decree almost causing us to be annihilated by Haman. This meal joins body to soul. Only then is there the special mitzvah of getting of drunk. ”till the point of not being able to tell ”cursed Haman from Blessed Mordichy”. At other times such behavior is seen as deplorable. But on Purim we get drunk. Purim comes to remind us of the miraculous nature of nature itself. The Magid of Koznitz teaches that by “sacrit” of Purim we raise those who are fallen. Illuminating the eyes of the sons of Human to learn Torah. Purifying sparks in them by the sanctification of the Divine name. Raising those fallen sparks. Each Purim more are purified. Not purified by merit, but by “Kidusha” of “nachat Ruach” over the miracle of Purim. The Magilla gives great detail of the Purim story so to make clear that Yisrael had transgressed the command of the Chuchmim. So the Magilla brings that they drank from the Temple vessels, defiling them. Ester and Mordichy were both from the seed of Shaul HaMelch who sinned by letting the sheep and the king of Amalak live so they needed to do the mitzvah of blotting out Amalak so to make “tikun” of the sin of Shaul. as they were from his seed so the “tikun” fell on them. Killing Haman and his 10 sons who each nourished from the 10 sefirot of the source of the Klippot (Amalak) and they expressed it by spreading out “kafira” (heresy).
The meal of Achashvarosh was Kosher Mehedrin under the “hashgacha” (supervision) of Mordichy, but the meal was forbidden as Mordichy and the Sanhedrin had ruled that one could not eat with the wicked and they brought out the vessels that had been used in the Holy service of the Temple to drink in and defiled them. By attending the kings feast the Jews defied Mordichy’s ruling. This is what brought the Divine ruling against them. It came to fruition because Mordichy would not bow to Haman. So Haman ordered his anger against all the Jewish people. Haman though fell by the 3 day fast Mordichy had ordained. “Mordechi the Jew was the משנה “Mishnah” (viceroy) of the king” (Ester 10:3). From him shine the masters of the Mishnah. (Zohar Tikunim). The “Aor Ganuz” teaches that the 3 day fast of Ester rose Machut in to the Avot, into Chaga”t. Yisrael is Teferet, the Master of Malchut.
We fell by not following Rabbinic rules and were thus saved by following a Rabbinic decree. This occurred during the days of the “Omer” when we prepare to receive the Torah including the rulings of the Rabbis. The full Moon is symbolic of Yisrael. On the 15th of Adar the Jews rose to a level of Godliness higher than when they received the Torah at mount Sinai. As on Purim the Jews accepted the Torah of their own free will and not because a mountain was suspended over their heads. As the Jews of Shushon had reached the real level of “teshuva” from love of Heaven, at the level of Pessach and Succot which are also on the 15th, Shavout is not. As they were not on that level of comprehension when they received the Torah.
The food at the feast of King Achashvarosh was of the Arz HaDat dressing in common food. Then Haman complained to Achashvarosh who is as the serpent. Who tempted “Chava” (Eve). Ester is “Chava”. This complaint dressed in Haman as a ruling of death against Yisrael. Nashama is a aspect of אסתר ,
. Mordichy is the “Yetzer Tov” and made “tikun” on the forbidden meal by ordaining the 3 day fast.
The Aor Ganuz teaches that Ester is “nikud penimi” the upper Shechinah. We learn in Atz Chym from the Ari Hakodesh That Ester is called השחראילת (doe of the morning). She is described green being the aspect of the “green Kav” which is Bina that surrounds the world. Its from this green kav nature’s nature is created. By this level of revelation we can understand what must be done as never before. This revelation of the shechinah is of such great beauty the Ar’i compares it to a virgin. The Kamarna Rebbe teaches Ester was like a green “etrog”, as She was green. Ester dressed in Malchut. Rabbi Aslag explains concerning this That the color of the illumination of Chuchmah in Malchut is called Ester. It is as gold-green, the color of the Etrog. Green like Gold is Chuchmah in “Chassadim”. Mordichy is such a level that His power nullifies power of מרדכי=בלעם+בלק =לאה+רחל +2 This is a very high level such that the Ar’i teaches in Mavua Sharim that in “gan aden” souls have a garment described as זך (shinny). Mordicy and Ester merited this garment while still in this world. This is what it means when it says, they had garments of “Malchut”. This is the aspect of אפר (dust of the earth), but as before the sin of Adam. By this “malchut” one certainly takes part in governance, providence of the world. The Aor Enyim reveals that on Purim the Yesod of Abba is revealed going out of the Yesod of “Parzuf” Rachel which is the “magilla”. Purim has the “ateret” (crown) of great gold of Chuchmah, and chesed. It Spreads out Chesed of Arich which dresses in Aba, from the side of “din” of Imma. Concerning this Chesed the Ar”i teaches in Lecutim that light is revealed in the Yesod from “Chesed Elyon”, this is the “leviyaton”. This is the “cord of Chesed” that illuminates in Malchut that is Ester. It is hidden in Abba and Imma in the secret of “ד”.
The Rashas”h teaches that during the exile of Bavel Zu”n stood back to back in “mochin gadlut” (developed consciousness) of Abba and Imma. After 70 years the “mochin” left Z”a. Then came Mordichy and Ester and the light was renewed. From Shar Cavanot we learn Purim is the time, and preperation right before redemption. It was for Pasach that Ester declared a 3 day fast . No Matzoth was eaten that Pasach. This was unbearable before heaven and evoked mercy that caused the sleep of king Achasvarosh to become disturbed. This disturbed sleep of king Achasvarosh occured on the night following Esters first feast and Haman setting up his Gallows to hang Mordichy, which was the 15th of Nisson. This resulted in him searching His Chronicles and remembering that Mordichy had saved his life but has not been rewarded. This led to the raising of Mordichy and the downfall of Haman and his evil plans. The Yalkut Shimoni teaches that it was the merit of eating of the Corban Passach of previous years’ merit which stood up to protect the Jewish people in the time of Haman. This brings us back to our original question of how it is that Purim protects us from “chumatz” on Pessach? In the simplest sense R. Shimon teaches “chumatz” is the evil imagination, like a haughty man it rises up. Arrogance can only occur when one does not know who it is they stand before. As Pharoe who represents the evil inclination said “ Who is GOD ? “ Purim reminds us to see GOD in all things, especially those things people take for granted as being mundane, coincidence and by “ chance “. This is essential as if we forget, then GOD has to remind us. As Rashi teaches us that Amalack is the dog GOD sends to bite us ש “חו when we forget where GOD is. To clarify this further we see in Pesicta of R. Kahana that Edom tries to make Yisrael go out side of the Torah path, but beyond the path’s borders GOD has placed the dogs. We see this idea reflected in the verse from Tihilim “ flatten it flatten it to its very יסוד ( foundation ) “ The sefira Yesod is sometimes call צדק (righteousness), the proper path. Edom would like to push Yisrael off the proper path to the dogs. How important is it to practice righteousness in one’s supposed mundane activities. Their give and take in the physical world. As R. Kahana teaches that you may be certain in a generation whose weights and measures are false will have a wicked kingdom wage war against them. So why does it appear in this world that the wicked seem to prosper ? One’s whose business practices exploit the poor. We can understand this by looking at the relationship between Yomkippurim and Purim.
Why is Yom Kipurim כ (like) Purim ? Just as on YomKipurim a lot is drawn and from it is chosen a goat to be given to distract the accusers on high. Like throwing a dog a bone. Then Yisrael is judged favorably. So too is the story of Purim. The wicked one drew lots trying to find when according to astrology would be the best time to attack Yisrael, Yet this too is only a distraction as there is no such time. As GOD rules within Nature. From The Ner Yisrael we learn פור (lot)=(2)קמ”ג . GOD controls the “lot”. The wicked think they are prospering in their evil way , but the truth is as Adam Ha Reshon Said “ The wicked thrive as grass, all the evildoers flourish in order that they may be destroyed for ever “. This will be when their cup of inequity is full and they inherit their lot. The “Aor Ganuz” writes that YomKipurim is like Purim becouse in the future at this time (Yom Kipporim) they shall rejoice. On Yom Kippor its forbidden to wear sandels but of the time of redemption it is written “How beautiful are your feet with shoes”. As by the Malchut shall be delight and pleasure in the time of redemption.
After Masiach comes there will be no longer Pasach, Rosh Hasanah or Yom Kippor but Purim will continue to be celebrated. This is a celebration of the absolute and complete destruction of Amalack.
The “Aor Ganuz” writes that the world is heading to a time when it will be only all Shabot. At that time the Zohar says Then will be nullified the “Yom Tovim”, then the moon will be in its completeness. But the days of Purim will not be nullified with the coming of Mashiach, may He come quickly in our days. Then there will be face to face revelation which has been missing all the days since the Holy Temple has been destroyed. except sometimes during “Tefilla”.
It is good to have in mind before the reading of the megila that in the merit of this mitzva, God should exterminate all the evil powers of this world, which is related in “Rosh ha Teva” (the first letters) of the verse, ’to remove the filth from the land.’ Please note, that the God always helps, but it is we who are commanded to wipe out Amalak. If Shaul would have killed the King of Amalak Agog who was the last of Amalak left alive instead of letting him live long enough to impregnate a women there would have been no more Amalak and Haman would then never have lived and maybe there would have been the complete redemption at that time with the complete blotting out of Amalak, by no means should we show mercy to Amalak.
Rav Shaboto teaches Purim is separate from all other holidays as its light is so great that we are not on the level to receive it but it descends unto us. Unlike on Shabbot where there illuminates in it light of Chuchmah and in the 3rd meal is aroused mercy of Keter and here we have to rise above to receive this light. But by Purim the Light descends to us below ! Other Yom Tovim the we rise a little and the light descends a little and this is why work is permitted. The time of Purim is time of the “Anshey Kanesset Hagadolah”, (The Great Assembly). The holidays enacted by the sages are greater than those from the Torah itself. They are as Jewelry sent by the bride to the groom so to make him more desirable to her,
The holiday of Purim is from sefirah of Chochmah. After the Messiah comes it will be the last holiday to go. Even after we no longer need Yom Kippur to access its holy light in the eighth millennium, Purim will still be a unique time. Only in the ninth millennium will the light of Purim shine everyday, at a very advance stage of Olam HaBah (the World-to-Come). Purim now, opens up access to light of the ninth millennium, the light of the sefirah of Chochmah. Shabbot gives us access to the light of the seventh millennium and Yom Kippur to the light of the eighth millennium. Purim is higher than all of these !
Rav Shabatto teaches that there are 2 “yichudim” of Hashem one is in fear and the other is in love. Kahalet ends his book saying “The end of the matter is to fear Hashem”. While the Song of Songs is “yichud” in the aspect of love. Cooresponding to these are the 2 days Yom CiPurim which is “teshuva” out of fear and Purim which is “teshuva” out of love. On Yom KiPurim we receive the Torah out of fear on Purim we receive the Torah out of Love. As it says in the Song of Songs “Bring me to the house of wine, your banner is over me for love.” In the Magilla its written יכתב להשיב את הספרים (8:5) becouse out of “teshuva” from love on Purim there will be nullified the evil that has been written in the book and sealed as his judgment on YomkPurim. So its written in Magillat Ester יכתב להשיב את הספרים (8:5) referring to the books that were sealed on YomkPurim. This is according to the Chida. Purim brings the physical and the spiritual closer this is as God’s hidden presence in the seemingly chance events of the Purim story. Also the repeated use of the word Ha-Melekh, “the King,” in the Magilla alluding to simultaneously to Ahasuerus and to the Almighty King of Kings (Esther Rabbah). Many Magilla have the word Hamelekh as the first word in each column.
Rabbi Chaim Vital immersed in a mikva erev Purim as was his custom before every Shabbat and festival. Shabbat clothing is worn on Purim, and if women have gold jewelry, Rabbi Yoseph Haim writes in ’Ateret Tiferet’, they should adorn themselves with such Jewelry to honor the festival. The custom is to say, ’Cursed is Haman’ three times, and intend to bring down the Samech Mem and his legions, and so to say three times, ’Blessed is Mordechai’, as was the custom in the Holy Yeshiva, Beit El. During the morning reading of The Megila, when the words, ’for the Jews was light and joy, happiness and riches,’ the custom is to touch and kiss one’s tefilin. Before making the festive meal, after reading the Megila and concluding the morning prayers, a person should immediately perform the ’mitzvot hayom’, by gifting gifts to the poor (matonot l’evyonim’) and afterward, ’sending food to one’s friends’, ’mishloach manot’, and then begin his personal festive meal, so too was the custom of the Ari’zal, and the Ra’shash.
R. Moshe Cordevero in Shur Kumah teaches that from the מאמר (creative utterance) that were made by Mordichy and Ester there was a מאמר by GOD added to their אמירה (loving type of speech). Becouse a מאמר by GOD joined to their אמירה the power of Malchut extended to include all the people. Such a מאמר has the power of a ruling of the King. Concering this its tought if you want a ruling of the King call the sefirot of the מאמר that is needed. By this there will be a arrousing of the king without doubt. The Ramcha”l in his safer Tefilot in # 515 says that by אהי”ה Haman was given into Esters hand’s (אהי”ה is a name of the כסא). כסא=אף(anger)
Haman and Mordechai both set out for Persia, Moedechai to plead for building the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and Haman against building the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Haman who was greedy, ate all his food at once, while Mordechai allowed enough to remain for the whole journey. Soon Haman became very hungry and begged Mordechai to share the remainder of his fare with him. At first, Mordechai refused his request, but later, he relented on the condition that Haman agree to become Mordechai’s slave. As they had no paper to upon which to write a contract, Haman wrote the following pledge upon the sole of Mordechai’s shoe: “I, Haman the Agagite, have sold myself to Mordechai as his slave in consideration of bread.” Since then Haman could never forgive Mordechai for his humiliation, and he was in constant dread lest Mordechai enforce his slave claim over him. Even more that this :
The son of a Jewish slave owner of his gentile slave is his property. So Yishmoyal and all his offspring are truly slaves to the Jewish people. Thus there is no need to promise to give us the lands of Yishmoyal for they belong to us as a slave does not own land but it belongs to the slave’s owner, the Jewish people.
The servants of the king did not know about the hidden hatred that there was between Mordechai and Haman, because they did not know that Mordechai was a Jew. (Mordechai was not Charadi).
The Temple is a place of unity, on both the territories of Yehuda, son of Leah, and Binyamin, son of Rachel. Here, brothers are united.
Like the Beit HaMikdash itself, Mordechai is both of Yehuda and of Binyamin. Mordechai represents unity and harmony, reconciliation and clarity. There was a man of Yehuda in Shushan the capital, and his name was Mordechai, son of Yair, son of Shim’i, son of Kish, a Benjaminite. (Esther 2:5)
“Achashverosh” is always written in the Megillah in full, with two vavs, except here :
“And King Achashverosh imposed a tax on the land and on theisles of the sea.” (10,1) Tax מס is ס”ם backwards.
Sni Luchot ha Brit Lech Licha teaches to Chant the 4 verses of the Magilla of Ester : 2:5, 6:1, 8:15, 8:16 (verses of redemption). Rav Shabbato teaches that Magilla is on a level higher then “Halacha Moshe Mi Sinai”
Say Melech loud on 6:1 , some also do on 10:13. Make a bean dish for meal as Danial would not eat Nebchanezer’s unKosher meat. Make fritters filled with beans and meat. At the meal write Amalak and Haman on a piece of paper and soak it in beer to fulfill the verse “Give beer to the wretched” (Mishle 21:6)
The Midrash Rabba writes that Mordechai ha Yehudi, after he had heard the decree of Haman, gathered together all the children who learned Torah, who were pure of soul, and began to teach them Torah. While he was teaching them, Haman entered the Beit Midrash in order to take him according to the command of the king, to lead him on the horse of the king in the king’s garments.
Mordechai thought Haman came to kill him, however Haman came over to him and asked him, ‘What are you teaching the children?’ Mordechai answered him that he was teaching the portion of the grain offerings brought in the Beit HaMikdash. Haman said, The ‘kometz’ or portion of your hand, ie; the learning of Torah you perform now, is worth more than the 10,000 shekels silver I gave to Achashverosh. It should be noted that 10,000 shekels silver was a tremendous amount of money and Haman who was not born rich but was a barber by trade most of his life and part of his life he sold himself into slavery to Mordichy as he became so poor. For him to give up so much money to kill the Jews shows just how much Amalek hates Jews. More than their desire for money. Which is one of the strongest drives to most people in this world.
‘ The Ari’zal writes in Sha’ar HaGilgulim that the power of Haman HaRasha which had enabled him to succeed in bringing such a difficult decree against the Jews was actually from the power of the holy sparks that had been hidden in the soul of Haman. And with this holy power, He had come to attack to the Jews. But from where did he derive this power? From the spark of the soul of the holy sage of the Talmud, Rabbi Shmuel bar Shilat, that was embedded in his soul.
The Gemara writes about Rabbi Shmuel bar Shilat that he had been a school teacher who was completely dedicated to imbuing his students with the holiness of Torah and mitzvot. And this is why Mordechai’s first response to Haman’s decree was to gather the school children together to learn Torah. Because that was Rabbi Shmuel bar Shilat’s mitzvah, and it was the power of this mitzvah that extracted the sparks from the soul of Haman. And because of this, Haman lost the power of holiness hidden in his soul, and from this point on, Haman’s downfall continued until his death, and the fall of all the enemies of the Jews. As it was in those days, so shall it be in our days as well. The sages explain that Saul’s “mercy” on the king of Amalek had severe consequences: Haman, the murderous villain of the Book of Esther, is called the “Agagite,” he was a descendant of the Amalekite King Agag.
R. Manachem Mendal of Chabad taught that when Queen Ester called on Mordichy to gather all the Jews and fast that Mordichy gathered thousands of children and taught them Torah until they became inspired to the point that they proclaimed “ we will stand with Mordichy and the Torah for life or death “ In the same day the decree against the Jews was made null and void, even if it only became known later. It is this type of devotion we must strive for in our divine service. Then evil has no leg to stand upon ! This can be seen in the teaching in Perke d Rebbi Eleazer as there we learn “ with the 4th from the little finger of the right hand GOD showed Moshe the ½ shekel, this is the finger of redemption.” It taught in Safer Ha Brit, also by Cyim Vetal and many other places that this finger corresponds to the flow of the sefira Chuchmah ( Divine Creative inspiration ). The wisdom of GOD above understanding. At this level there is no free will, only truth. The Holy Ar”i reveals that on the day of the miracle of Purim, God shined upon the Jews a great divine light, through which they were saved from their enemies in both a spiritual and physical sense. And thus every year, on that day, a great saving light comes to the Jews and shines upon them.
So what is Purim anyway, it is named after the ”pur” (lot) drawn by Haman. By definition, a lot is an object used in deciding something by chance. Therefore, in a lot, all possibilities are essentially equivalent. For the lot, ”yes” and ”no” are equal. This is alluded to in the two words for ”yes” and ”no” in Aramaic quoted above:
The word for ”yes” is hen, which is numerically equivalent to the word ha’kol (55), meaning ”all” in Hebrew. Furthermore, the word for ”no” in Aramaic, lav, is numerically equivalent to the Hebrew word hevel (37), which means “vanity”. These two words form together the central phrase of Ecclesiastes ” (1:2): “all is vanity,”–ha’kol hevel. This is the meaning of a lot. Rabbi Shabato teaches that Haman thought from his “goral” (lottery) the פור (lot) that went out for destroying Yisrael in Adar which is the Yesod of water, showed him he could extinguish the fire of Yisrael, and blot out the עפר (earth) of Yisrael (as during the flood). But the opposite happened. Yisrael did “teshuva” and this caused Haman to fall in Nisson which is the Yesod of fire.
The meal Lot had with the angels in Sodom was matza. Yet the meal was called “mishteh”. This word is also used in the Magilla of Easter for the meal of purim. Purim is redemption without miracles in a revealed way. Passach redemption was one of many obvious miracles. Together Passach and purim include all aspects of redemption. Lot was conducting the Passach Sader and the purim “Sudah” all as one.
The name Ester comes from the Hebrew word “str” meaning hidden or secret. Some of the most important commandments are performed secretly. Over so much we just don’t have a clue. All history is really a extended version of the Magilla, until Mashiach (The Messiah) will be revealed. Then everything will be different.
Purim we can even see in this world is not only a thing from the ancient past but it was on the holiday of Purim in 1991 that the 1991 Gulf War ended and was a good day for the Jewish people.With the reading of the megillah came the first occasion in a month and a half when people were able to leave their homes without gas masks.
The Massiah comes from Ruth a righteous convert. She came from the nation of Moab. Moab was the son of an incestuous father-daughter relationship. Why would the seed of the Messiah come from such a place ?. God hates incestuous relationships This is hard to understand
Purim is one of the most family-oriented holidays. But, the story centers around Esther, who intercedes to save all the Jews. Esther,a Jewish women in a relationship with a gentile king, a forbidden relationship. There are those who also say that Mordechai and Esther were really husband and wife. This is all VERY difficult to understand, and none of this seems very appropriate for the the “most family-oriented holiday”. It is all to say the least very strange. So what is really going on in the story of Purim ? The truth of the matter is We don’t know. The sages have left us some clues, pieces to the puzzle that they had, and this helps but we do not have whole picture. We are missing pieces, The fact of the matter is “God’s thoughts are not as our thoughts”. The God is infinite and we are finite. There are some things one just cannot KNOW ?
May it be that we all see this fulfilled as the sages say “ till one does not know the difference between cursed is Haman and Blessed is Mordichy “, but all only the revealed will of GOD, as there is no other ! With the gathering of the exiles and the building of the Bait Hamigdash with our Righteous Maschiach in Rachamim quickly in our days AMEN SELAH !

FRIDAY NIGHT , SHABOT is Tu bi Svat
Tu bi Svat-Birthday of the Trees
And Yhv”h spoke to Moses, saying,
Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall you have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of horns, a holy gathering.
Having decided to create the world GOD removed part of himself leaving only a tracing of his essence. From this he built and covered himself in a supernal radiance of thought, and created the world there from. From the light of this radiance, being the light of the first day the Holy one produced the “mighty cedars of Lebanon” of the upper world and the 22 letters from which was carved 10 utterances from which the Holy one’s Chariot is placed on all. It is from these cedars that King Soloman built his Chariot for the maintenance of the lower world through the upper. As it says “Solomon made himself a chariot out of the Cedars of Lebanon”.
It is also stated “The Cedars of Lebanon which he planted where the birds make their nest”. This being all birds as described in parsha Pinchas from the face of the Eagle in the Supernal Chariot as described by the prophet Ezekiel comes the Nashama, the intellectual soul. This aspect of the soul surrounds the body and some of it enters one’s head. It is the vessel of the Merkava (Chariot) of the Torah. It is from this point that the 6 directions of the world unfold, the 6 powers of the ruach , emotional soul.
It is of these forces, those channeling divine energy into the physical creation that King Solomon built a palace below. In the likeness of the palace above. This is what the Holy one blessed is he calls the upper Garden of Eden. Being the strong and mighty tree, reaching the highest Gan Aden. It is here that the Holy one has joyous communion with the souls of the righteous. In the celestial academy. They perceive the loveliness of God. Then they rise and bathe in the streams of balsam (the 13 attributes of mercy that control Mazel). This Balsam being the supernal hidden palace. It is this communion which is the desire, and delight of the Holy one. From here souls can travel and appear to men to perform miracles for them in the manner of angels.
It is these “Cedars” which are the 6 days of creation, each performing its assigned function and emanation. He who is worthy of this Chariot is worthy of all things. Being worthy to repose in the peace of the Holy one’s shadow.

The Jewish attitude towards death and graves is not something based on unfounded superstition. Rather it is based on the Divine body of wisdom that conveys understanding concerning the ongoing connection between the dead, who’s soul has or is rising above and those who are still alive. Although everyone is aware the body disintegrates after death. We as Jews also “know” that man remains after death, because his soul lives on.
HERE IS THE PROOF:
THIS IS TRANSLATED FROM MY TEACHER’S TEACHER’S BOOK “MINCHAT YEHUDAH”– THIS DESCRIBES HIS WORK SAVING PEOPLE’S LIVES AND SAVING SOULS FROM PERIL.
In the year 1915 (5675) on the 15th of Ellul there came to me a young girl 17 years old named Katan Bat Azizah. She told me she was a orphan as her father had died. A year before her mother went to Persia to visit her brother there, as he was ill. She left me, my younger brother and sister with our aunt. My mom’s sister. She was angry very much consumed in anger and regrets. Katan found it difficult to handle her aunt’s anger and curses. She wanted to leave the house for good. As she was so troubled by her. To add to my troubles in Ellul after Shabot I cried and wailed on my bed with all my body concerning my bad fortune. Then all of a sudden I felt like a giant cat had fell between my shoulders, like a great cut had entered my flesh. After it felt as if it had entered my left arm. My arm became very heavy. To the point I was no longer able to move it. From that day my arm only hung down. I trembled at times and my eyes rolled up and down. My feet would move from side to side. At times I would walk back and forth and back and forth. When I layed down on my bed I was not able to sleep as I heard the sound of a hammer striking. When my mother returned we went together to a Arab mystic. After going to him many times he told us that I have a very strong demon within me. He tried but was unable to remove it from me. After this I want to the grave of Yuhoshua the Cohen Gadol (High priest) and prayed there a lot. I began to tremble greatly. I saw a man of great honor, dressed in white. I was unable to speak with my mouth. He stood about 4 feet from me he did not speak. Katan cried over her life, and the shattered heart in her midst.
To bring mercy upon her I did “yichudim” (meditations of Divine names) upon the spirit. The spirit then began to express thoughts in speech and screaming. The spirit said that she was a harlot. I asked her name. She did not want to say. After many times doing the yichudim on the 19th of kislev she finally said her name was Rosa. She told me that in the time she was dying the demon Lilly came to her. This caused her soul to be troubled very much. She said my soul wanted to escape from my body, before lilly could come close. Lilly put a sword to my throat. By this there went out my soul from my body. There then came to my soul 5 angels of rage. They stood by my head and asked “what is your name ?”. They had come to strike my body to purify it for 3 days and nights with rods of fire. Then there came another angel who I remember also appeared as a angel of rage. It was He who took my soul from its grave and struck it with a big hit, by this striking my soul was propelled in the “kaf hakeleh” (hallow of the sling) thrown until it reached the entrance of the supernal court in the firmament. I stood there naked as the day I was born. 2 angels came out from the supernal court. They gave me a shirt that was black and white, and another garment to cover below my waist. Then I was brought before the court. It was a court of 3 judges. The greatest of them sat in the middle. Their faces shinned as great as the sun. The court asked me what is the name of your father and mother. I did not want to answer them. Then the officers of the court struck me with lashes of remembrance, until I could endure no more. The first blow made me feel like a spark from a fire. The 2nd blow made me as a burning coal and the 3rd made me as dust. Then the court enlivened me and I told them my father and mother’s name. It was made known to me I had been incarnated in a man living in Basra (Iraq). He was evil and wicked and did not resist any lust and abomination he could do. In the end of his days he changed his religion and became a Muslem. After He died he was made into a evil spirit that entered into the body of a woman. All is revealed before the supernal court, even all that is hidden in one’s heart. There is nothing that is concealed from them.After they gave me a document, it was not like a document of this world. I opened it and it spoke to me. I read in it and I could speak to them. But I did not know what to say. The first judgement concerns the learning of Torah. This is seen by the one who is given the document but they are unable to read it. They are then asked why they did not learn Torah. According to one’s preparation from learning of Torah they are they able to read their “document” given to them by the Supernal court. In this “document” is listed all of one’s transgressions and abominations that they did while they were alive. You do not want to have to trouble the Court to have them read it to you !. The court will tell you what is not written there. Atonement comes from the embarrassment you will feel, if they have to read it to you. I told them that I has sex with some one man I was not married to. They asked me how many times during the 5 years of the relationship I did have sex. I said I did not know for certain 50 or 60 times. The head judge of the court answered and said it was 100 times. I explained to them I had done these things because it was the way I thought. They told me not to speak. To say nothing else. Then for 100 years I had to go with the angels of rage where ever they commanded me to walk. They warned me not to disobey, and not to change what they said. Then they returned me to the Supernal court to receive my judgement. They had me swear in the Great Name that I would not transgress upon what they say. They called 4 angels of rage and said these shall be over (in charge of you). One on each of the 4 sides (of the world). Then the angels took me to a scary desert full of snakes, scorpions, dogs and evil beasts of many different kinds. They were all spiritual (entities). All souls who pass this way tremble. In the desert I was given 27 lashes a day. They walked me in another desert which no eye has seen. I did not know how to walk there alone. They ruled that I had to chop wood. I was brought to another court. It was in the lower half of the Supernal firmament. In this court are ministers who are in charge of punishment. To then was given my accounting. The ministers in this 2nd court are different than those in the first. They made judgment concerning my punishment. Then they gave me to 4 angels of rage. They took me to the desert again and gave me 17 lashes every night. When I chopped wood it was like chopping my own flesh. The wood there is not like the wood of this world. All the time I was chopping wood it was opening up the flesh in my shoulder. If I ran out of wood I was under order of the supernal court to go back in to the desert and get more. The wood I cut I had to return to the court to burn. The angels of rage went with me. Each year after I finished my sentence of wood cutting as ordered by the Supernal court of the firmament. I then entered the 2nd court. There is a 3rd court in the atmosphere below the firmament where there is written the document as the years passed of my punishment, how many years were left for me. Any who come to this Supernal court have punishment and lashes. In all the days of the week these souls have no rest. Except on the 6th day of the week at the 6th hour. At that time we are bound in chains and there stands around us angels of rage who guard us till after the Sabbath has concluded. There are also winged angels who sit and tell each other concerning the works of the wicked. Their evil guile they worked while they are alive and the punishments that the supernal court has ruled upon them. Even on the Sabbath we have no joy. As then we remember our suffering that we endured during the past week, and we think about the punishments and suffering that are about to come upon us in the future as soon as the Sabbath is over. We feel a little relief when the Kadish (prayer for the dead) is said for us, but few know how to say it. All the souls here are naked as in the day they were born. Everywhere I look I see groups of souls who transgressed sexually. God does not embarrass the wicked before each other. There is a separate place for those who transgressed different transgressions. I was punished for my sexual activity. I do not know what is done in other places. Those here who are chained to dogs are incarnated next time as a dog. It was ruled concerning me that I should be in the place of evil beasts. After that I was sent for 7 years to swim at the beach. For 2 years I had to hover over the graves of the city where I was born Bagdad. Hovering over the graves of the dead is the worse suffering, as there rises up guilt and regrets. I saw my soul hovering over a grave screaming in a great voice. I was suffering greatly from the evil scent. It was ruled upon me that I had to fly in the atmosphere of the firmament at a hight of 40 years from the earth. Only to this height are the spirits flying above the earth. It is at this height that we receive judgment from the supernal court that is in the firmiment. When hovering over graves or the sea this is at a distance of 2 or 3 stories above the earth. We don’t have to strength to rise above to the next firmament. Height more than this is not ruled for us. If we were to go higher we would be burned by the fire of the firmiment. As we are not refined enough to go up to the higher level. It is ruled upon us that we must float around in the cities where we used to live. This troubles the spirit very much. When the angels of rage want to increase the burden of our yolk they rule that we must go to distant cities, this is much worse. Even if we are always running away from our angels of rage we can not get any further away than the limits to which they bind us with. If we try to they hit us with out holding back with the lashes of remembrance as prescribed by the supernal court, but not any more than that. The angels of rage do not have permission to stop us from doing evil. Such as damaging a man, or entering into him so to escape their lashes. Unless the supernal court has specifically ruled so.
If we do enter into a man or women. When the time comes that we are obligated to bring our wood to the supernal court to burn before them. Then administrator over the spirit takes it out by force from the animal or human whose body they have occupied. So to bring it to the supernal court. There it is burn and lashed. After he goes back to the animal or person. To us this offers no benefit, except escaping the lashes of the angels of rage.
The yichudim (meditations on the Divine names) causes more pain to the spirits than the lashes of the angels of rage, or the purification of the grave. The lashes from the angels of rage do not fix the souls, but the yichudim do.
I Rosa was only able to tell you all this because of the yichudim which I was unable to bare. So I had to answer your questions.
Rosa said when one has done many sins and evil they make their soul blemished and impure, by causing the negative forces to dress upon it. By this they can cause their soul to also parish from the world to come

Filed under: PARSHA LECH LECHA
UPDATED July 26 2016
Lech Lecha Bs”d
In the 1948th year after creation of Adam, Avraham our forefather was born. According to our Sages in Midrash, Rabbah Barashet Avraham came to recognize God when he was 48 years old. When he was fifty-two years of age the first two thousand years of “Tohu” (Chaos) of the earth’s existence come to their conclusion. In 1948 of the secular calendar, The State of Israel was declared. This is not a coincidence !
Avraham was the first to know the God. Nimrod and others knew there were angels , supernal forces , spirits but Avraham was the first to know that there was one supreme being over all of them.
Bilam, Lavan, Pharaoh, Sanheriv, Nebuchadnezzar and later the Greeks had different beliefs but there was one common idea all of them believed that being that the Creator Himself is a unapproachable authority removed from this world. This is why Pharaoh could not believe when Moshe said that the God Himself spoke to him. Every one only believed it was only possible to communicate or worship lower powers like angels. in charge of various forces of nature, or angels in charge of various nations. Abraham and his family and eventually the Hebrew people were the first to claim that God Himself can be worshiped. People of the Nations never heard of such a think and could not even understand such a “radical” idea so the nations rejected this claim.
Avraham is the chariot, conduit to the sefirah of Chesed (loving kindness). Chesed is the first revelation of the Light in this world. The first and basis for the emotional sefirot, which are the vessel for Divine intellect. According to our emotions which result in our actions are we able to perceive. The Zohar explains ” אֵלֶּה תוֹלְדוֹת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְהָאָרֶץ, בְּ הִ בָּרְאָם ” that the word ” בְּ הִ בָּרְאָם ” means “when they were created” has the same letters as ” בְאַבְרָהָם “ (in Avraham). The “tikun” fixing of the world begins Chesed which is in the merit of Avraham. We need to open the upper gates for the Supernal Light to flow into our lives, by acting like Avraham, practicing unconditional love and sharing.
After GOD told Avraham that his decedents shall be as the stars of the sky its said that he had Faith in GOD and it was counted for him as Righteousness. This contains an important lesson. As the mitler Rebbe said peace unto him, Emuna (faith) is the Yesod (foundation-gateway of energy) of every Mitzvah. Or as the Maharall of Prague explains in Givurot GOD that it is a Jew’s faith which sustains him in all his endeavors. Or as we can learn out from our verse ” He had faith in Yhv”h and it was counted to him as Righteousness”. The Zohar tells us that sedek (Righteousness) is Yesod (foundation-gateway of energy). Yesod being as a gate allowing varying degrees of revelation. The degree is determined by the extent of ones emuna . It is through this that we can be as the Malbim understands the Jewish people ”a mighty force”. Meaning for the revelation of GOD’s light in the world.
In our parsha we see Melchizedek chose Abram to be his successor, ordaining Abram to be a “kohen” (priest) as he was. Abram thus became the heir of what some call the Melchizedekian Priesthood. Abram passed this priesthood down to Isaac by his patriarchal blessing, he passed it on to Jacob, who in turn gave it to all twelve of his sons. Thus the entire nation of Israel became Melchizedekian priests. This was confirmed at Mt. Sinai when God called the nation of Israel a “Kingdom of priests” (Exodus 19:6). The sons of Aharon were later chosen to serve as the priests to Israel, as Israel serves as priests to the nations of the world. Thus on Succot Israel offers 70 oxen, one for each nation of the world on Succot.
Thus has Israel been ordained by God, to bring to the nations the message of God’s revelation at Mt. Sinai and the message of the Bible. This is what Isaiah means when God says through him “I will make you a light to the nations, so that My salvation shall be until the end of the earth.” (49:6)
Being as Avraham foresaw when seeing the heifer, goat and ram were divided in half when a thick darkness fell, a smoking furnace and a torch of fire passed between them dividing them. The smoke and fire being emissaries of the Shechinah. The darkness and fire being the same which was revealed at Sinai. This act of dividing the 2 carcasses is a pact demonstrating that 2 parties are a one. Through the cloud, smoke and fire. The Chuchmah of GOD’s Torah. At Sinai there was cloud, smoke and fire as its written :
“These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice which was not heard again. And he wrote them in two tablets of stone, and delivered them to me.” (deut 19:5)
“And Mount Sinai was altogether in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount trembled greatly.”(ex18:19)
We also see a covenant made in a cloud after the flood as its written :
“I set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth.” ( 13:9Gen)
We also see the cloud, smoke and fire as GOD’s force in the Desert as its written :
“ And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night” (ex 21:13)
It was these forces that protected Yisrael and led the Egyptians to destruction as its written:
“And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these; so that the one came not near the other all the night. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked to the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and brought confusion to the army of the Egyptians,”(20-24:14Ex)
We also see the mystery of the cloud, smoke and fire as GOD’s force in :
“And I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came from the north, a great cloud, and a fire flaring up, and a brightness was around it, out of its midst, as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of its midst came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. And everyone had four faces, and everyone had four wings.” (Ezek 4-6:1)
This is the Mystery of the Markava (chariot). The deepest of secrets.
Only because of this oneness created through our covenant with GOD are we compared to the stars through which GOD guides mazel the providence of creation. So too, each of us continue to take part in the creation which is continual. It is up to us whether Mashiach will come to us because of our great suffering in wars, or He will show his glory miraculously to the world without Yisrael needing to suffer at all.
A way of revealing this oneness revealing the shechinah hastening the Mashiach’s arrival is shown by Melchizedek king of Shalem who brought forth bread and wine and then blessed Avraham in the name of GOD maker of the Heaven and earth. This is similar to what we do every Shobot when we have bread on our table and we make a blessing on wine in Kidush in the name of GOD remembering the work of creation. The future is set in motion with Avraham’s decedents promised the land of Israel, and their nature as said before will be a mighty force. While the decedents of Yishmoyal (the Arab states) are given their blessing ” And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him” (16:12). This makes it clear that our Arab neighbors are not a people that GOD has blessed with the quality of being a cooperative, brotherly, understanding, compassionate people of peace. But their nature is quite the opposite. Violence being a major role of theirs in the world. It is from this understanding that we should deal with them. If he is blessed by GOD to be a maniac can we hate what GOD has intended him to be ?. Should we hate the mentally ill if their disposition is violent ?. Or should they be cured of their mental illness. One though should never be fooled by Yishmoyal’s facade if he talks as a peaceful people. It is clear that our Arab neighbors are not people that GOD has blessed with the quality of being a cooperative, brotherly, understanding, compassionate people of peace. But their nature is quite the opposite. Violence being a major role of theirs in the world. It is from this understanding that we should deal with them. But violence is best avoided we should seek peace first. Violence is only a last resort. Abraham saw that Ishmael was wicked and had incurred the death penalty for serving idols, he prayed that “ only Ishmael would live before You,”hoping he would repent. And so it was, that Ishmael indeed repented, as is known.
In this weeks parsha we find a clear proof of the Divine origin of Torah.It really shows the prophetic nature of Torah clearly.It is written in the Torah :
“You are pregnant, and you will give birth to a son. You will call him Yishmael, because God has heard your affliction. He will be a wild man, and his hand will be against everyone, and the hand of everyone against him. Yet, he will dwell over all of his brothers.” (Bereishis 16:11-12)
Does this not describe the the Arabs, the descendants of Yishmael well :
“A wild man, and his hand will be against everyone, and the hand of everyone against him.”
Concider this, Even those who wish to deny the Divine origin of Torah, have to agree that the Torah is at least 2,000 years old.
After all, Christianity, which is over 2,000 years old, based itself upon the Torah, which they call the “Old Testament,” and they had no problem believing that the Torah was given by God to the Jewish people.
However, 2,000 years ago, the Arab world had yet to really become a nation, and Islam did not yet exist. It would take another 600 years for the Arab world to create a religion of their own, and even longer to become bold enough to try and export their religion to the rest of the world. Any prophecies the Torah made about Yishmael and his descendants were recorded long before it was clear to anyone what kind of people Yishmael would become, and how he would eventually affect the world.
NOW THIS IS A AMAZING proof of the Divine origin of Torah. It really shows the prophetic nature of Torah, AS WHO WOULD KNOW 2000 YEARS AGO ?
Furthermore to make predictions about the descendants of Yishmael, is a make-or-break issue, as if the prediction proved wrong the Bible would have been thrown in the garbage heap of history. No Human author would have taken such a risk.
The king that Abraham fought who came from the east named Araphel was none other than Nimrod. The evil ruler who tried to kill Avraham by forcing him into a furnace. Here he came as King Araphel, problems at time don’t just go away they may just change the way they appear to be.
As GOD said to Avraham ”I will give of you to the nations”. The Hamak Hadavar explains this as meaning that you will be a teacher of wisdom to the nations. Concerning the words ” Kings shall come from you” the Hamak Hadavar explains Kings will come from the decedents of Avraham who will suppress the idolatry of the nations” May we see this completely realized with the arrival of the King know as Mashiach quickly in our days
The ability of the Biblical Prophets to prophesize did not come from no where. They learned, trained and worked to be blessed by the God to be able to manifest these abilities. The Rabbis of the Sanhedrin through out the centuries, would Teach the techniques Hinted at in the Sefer Yetzirah. They called it “Schools of Prophecy”. Most people do not realize that it is necessary to learn to be a Prophet. Once one learns the technique, then and only then, will The God choose those who he wants to be Prophets to the generation. These same techniques allow people to Experience/Know The God in a way that is not available through other techniques. Prophesy at this moment is not available but from these same techniques one is able to come upon various levels of “Ruach HaKodesh”. The Holy Spirit.
From the book Marachot Eloheme we learn that the main intent in GOD’s desire to create the world was so that man should become complete and thus merit to have Ruach ha Kodesh (Spirit of Holiness) dress upon him. By this he would reach levels of prophesy, and fill the world with peace and life. This would leave the force of evil no place to rest on, so it would die. When the yetzer hora (evil inclination) dominates then the light that GOD hid for the sadeekem (righteous) is hidden. It cannot be comprehended, but becomes hidden because of the serpent. This light is the yesod (foundation-gateway) of חיים (true life). A man can come to comprehend but a little bit only after great toil. In his body there must illuminate fear before he will be given any comprehension in these matters. This is a ruling of the tree of life, also according to this sadeekem are given comprehension in Gan Aden (Garden of Eden). GOD is exacting in the judgements of this matter to the finess of “a single hair”. This is whats called the 2 sided sword, it is before Gan Aden (Garden of Eden). GOD placed this sword in Gan Aden to guard the way to the Atz Chym (tree of knowledge) after Adam sinned and was no longer fit to eat from it. Know that in the Torah rests the comprehension of the fruit of the Atz Chym (Tree of life).1 Its written “A flaming sword stands to the east of the garden to guard the way to the Tree of Life” (Genesis 3:22-24). The way is derech eretz (proper conduct).2
The level of Torah call “Torat Atzilut,” (World of Emination) or “Torat Moshiach,” (Torah of Messiah) is level of Torah that will return to us at the time of the Moshiach. It is the Torah that is called Aitz HaChaim (the Tree of Life). It can only be an elixir for life. It is the ultimate level of Torah, that of the First Tablets. It is a “elixir for life” and it will automatically promote Derech eretz (ethics). This level of Torah called Aitz HaChaim is Chesed (kindness)-based. It automatically fixes the character of the person who learns it, and those whom he affects. The second set of tablets Moshe descended with eighty days later are on the level of the Aitz HaDa’at Tov v’Rah (tree of good and evil). It is either an “elixir for life”, or “an elixir for death”. The Second Tablets is the Torah of the world of Beriyah. The Gevurot (severities) in them are the prohibitions of the Torah. They are for the sake of protecting and distancing from impurity and filth, which is death. This is the Torah we all have now. The level of revealed Torah that the Jewish people departed Mt. Sinai with was not that of the Aitz HaChaim, but that of the Aitz HaDa’at Tov v’Rah, with which Gevurot (forces of severity and restriction) are associated. With this level of Torah there is no guarantee that one will automatically be elevated. Derech eretz (ethics) must precede one’s approach to this Torah. If one is to be able to receive the “light” and use it to make “tikunim” (fixing) and gain divine awareness.3 In Beor Esser Sefirot it is taught that he who walks in simplicity without צורה (form) or דמות (likeness) and is far from physicality and recognises their creator Who created them.He does not go after his eyes. There is open to him the gate of righteousness in his heart. Then he can call to The God. They call and see the Glory of GOD (the name of God) and they understand the סוד (secret), because there is nothing but GOD. They give over yichud (unification of the Name of God) twice daily. This is the gate of heaven. To them is אות (signs). Their eyes see. GOD does miracles and wonders. The fool does not understand this.4
It’s taught in Pre Atz Chayim that the voice and breath make a “makava” (divine chariot) to join with the souls of the “sadeekem Reshonim”. Breath is the aspect of ה of יהו”ה , while voice is from thought is from the ו. Rabbi Moshe Chyim Lazatto teaches that the souls of sadeekem (Holy men) become “ibor” (impregnate- joined) with the Nefesh Ruach and Nashama (Animal Emotional and intellectual soul)of men. Its even possible to reach to the soul of Moshe.5 One who speaks Torah in the name of a sadeek (Holy man) his Nashama is with him, and he works with him. He also recieves the light of the sadeek’s Torah. It goes over strengthening his Nashama. If one does not give over the Torah in the name of him who spoke it first its supernal light is withheld.6 The Ar’i Hakodesh also taught that he merited Torah by working hard to understand the zohar. Three times each day Eliyahu Ha Novi would come to teach Rebbi Shimon and Rebbi Eliazer, how can one not read it ?. Rabbi Argosi teaches that from learning Zohar one merits levels very high in Olam Haba which are otherwise inaccessible. This is becouse with the Zohar’s understandings concerning the mitzvot. The mitzvot have more value. There is no end for a man to apply understanding to the mitzvot. The Ramban said “ The foundation of all “Chachmot” (wisdoms) stands on who is GOD.7 In Shar Mimori Rasb’y the Ar’i teaches that nashamot of “Imma” are drawn from “imma Illah” by way of truth and faith. Torah is called truth, and faith is the foundation and source of divine service. Rabbi Yaakov Abuchitzera teaches that a man needs “Emuna” engraved upon his heart so that his “dat” (knowledge) is in אמנה שלמה (perfect faith) in things of the Kaballah. In this they will see “mammash”.8 Rabbi Nachman of Breslov teaches that through faith one achieves intellect.9 Rabbi Moshe Cordevero teaches in his commentary to the Zohar called Aor Yakar that there is united Chuchmah and Bina in Keter by Dat . Recieve Bina from Chuchmah through Dat. Dat is the Yesod of Rachamim. It is the source and Nashama of Teferet. Unification of Chuchmah and Bina illuminates dat in Bina. The flow of chuchmah is arroused throught Dat that is in Bina. Ultimately רעותא (arousal) is Divine will, it is Ketter. This is life of the worlds which is the Yesod below illuminating upon the earth which is Machut. Chuchmah is called arrousel from above, as it is above Bina. There is the מאורות, and fineness. Ketter is a aspect of flow in Bina that is not through Chuchmah. Keter can flow by way of the central pillar in Teferet, not through Bina or Chuchmah reaching chesed. Keter makes a path (of Bina) for itself. It is the dwelling place of the Shechinah. 10 It is according to one’s Dat, which is “penimi” in the sefirot that there is a “segulah” (miraculous power) to unite with רצון (Divine will).11
The main intent in every revelation of GOD and in every creation is only for the Torah and Yisrael. Every man and the whole world was only created for this. The purpose is to nullify the klippot after this there will be refined our bodies and chitzon and they will be united with the Nashama and together they will rise to Malchut of Atzilut. As this is the essence of the most perfect union. From there it can rise up with no limit. Till Malchut of the Ayn Sof. This is the first source. This whole tikun is only made through the Torah and Yisrael. The source of Torah is the first revelation of light from Ayn Sof (Divine Infinate), this is the source of everything and to where it returns. The source of Yisrael is malchut of Atzilut. From there is created all of Bria Yetzera and Asiyah. Bria Yetzera and Asiyah (Spiritual worlds) are chitzon (external) and the Nashamot of Yisrael are penimi(internal), they are upper Dat. The middle pillar which is the secret of the Torah has light of the Ayn Soff. From the Dat in Machut are the souls of Yisrael. Revelation of penimi (internal aspect) of Dat (Dat) is from the central pillar by מ”ה. From it goes out Nashamot (Souls) with the light of the Torah.
