In the very beginning of out parsha Hashem (God) informs Moses to go into pharoe and Hashem than tells Moses that he will harden his heart to his requests. This happens time and time again. One can only ask what is going on ? What is the use of even going in to Pharoe and asking to “let the people go”, if there is not even a chance of Pharoe conceding to his request. Moses went to Pharoe time and time again asking to “let the people go” only each time to face failure. The Aor ha Chyim says Moses must have despaired. From here we can obviously learn a number of lessons. Take to heart that like Moses, even when we go on a mission to accomplish something that is in accordance with the will of Hashem. We may find that it may come only after great difficulty.We must serve Hashem with joy even if the difficulties we face create situations that could lead to despair. We must serve hashem with joy and not despair. We can see from the occurrences in our parsha that the difficulties we face are also part of Hashem’s plan. We can grow from such things that “appear” as problems, by drawing joy from Hashem’s wellsprings. Thus negating the despair, as we know that this too is Hashem’s will. Through this one learns to illuminate the darkest hour, and how to reach deep into the well of Hashem’s delight. When one faces “low tides”, hard times one realizes Hashem is blessing through withholding his blessing. By this we grow and our soul reaches to its source in the delight of Hashem in its root and source. When we need to reach far above to see the light.

It says “and the people took the dough before it was leavened, the kneading troughs bound in there clothes on their shoulders. And the children of Isreal did according to the word of Moses and asked the Egyptians for Jewels, silver, gold and raiment. And Hashem gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Sight referring to Chuchmah (Creative Divine inspiration). As when we make Hashem’s will our own. Then being joined with it, so to the will of Hashem all around us becomes fulfilled in Chuchmah from which the world is created continually which is fulfilled according to our needs.

From this we see when we take our dough, representing out physical concerns and give them less priority then our spiritual concerns when they come into conflict. Hashem blesses us in the Physical in more ways than we can imagine. As Yisrael walked out of Egypt in possession of all its physical wealth.

   During the plague of darkness Yisrael went to the houses and places of the Egypytions  asking them to give them their gold and silver and other things of value and then they went and took all they could find for their was light to Yisrael while the Egyptions were in a fearful darkness unable to move, with a “darkness that could be felt”. It wasn’t an ordinary darkness. There was something that made it scarier. The Etz Chayim says that this darkness was the primordial darkness that existed before the creation. The Egyptions felt like there was “some thing” lurking in the dark waiting to get them. Something that can’t be seen, is scarier then something that can be seen. The Me am’ Lo’ ez says, “The darkness was such that it was virtually impossible to breathe.” As they were so afraid.

 

During the plague of DARKNESS Last time 4 out of 5 died when they were taking the money from the egyptions. The prophets told us that the next redemption shall be as the first.

 

 

In the Talmud in tractate Magilla we learn that once Jerusalem is built, the kingdom of David will come, as the Prophet Hosea states ” The children of Israel will return and seek YHVH their God and David their King ” (3:5). But the jewelry, watch, houses, expensive wig, and the quicksand that is the “good life” is more powerful than the commandments. Take to heart one of the last teaching of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochi from Zohar Chadash Tikunim as there we learn In the last exile God will not send us out from the host country of our exile till we take alot of money, like we did before leaving Egypt. So it shall be in the last exile. With this money we will be required to make an offering to God. But the evil inclination will come close seeing all the things God has given them, and will wants these things for himself. The will be the time to run from the devil, the desire of your evil inclination. All who are strong with their Nashama (soul of Divine intellect) will guard to be close to God. Then God will cause him to bring these things to serve Him. So don’t die in the plague of darkness take what you have and leave you Egypt (your host country of exile) in haste.

 

  The dough which was to become matza they put in their garments, on their shoulders. Just as we are instructed by the sages to put the Afficoman (last matzah of pessach seder) on our shoulders and then hide it. The eating of the afficomen is called in the seder tzphon (hiddeness). Thus we see when we take our physical concerns as said before and put them aside, as the afficomen is put aside till later in the seder. Then after we are satiated we eat the afficomen which is called in the seder tzphon (hiddeness) then we shall inherit the tzphon (hiddeness) of Hashem as described in the song of songs “The cleft of the rock, in the secret of the stairs” reaching to the heights of Godly vision yielding the most profound delight. Thus will be fulfilled again as said in our parsha “And it came to pass on that very day it came to pass, that all the hosts of Yhv”h went out from the land of Egypt. It is a night of watchfulness to Yhv”h for bringing them out of the land of Egypt. This is a night of watching kept to Yhv”h by all the people of Israel throughout their generations.” Thus we will see as our sages say the redemption from the final exile will be like that from Egypt. And may we see the face of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.
