Matto”t and “Shemona Esray”and “Sma”
When Hashem comes down in the “Sma” it is said about the “Chayot” , “And I hear the voice of their wings” (, Tikunny Zohar, Ezekiel. 1:24)
In the “Shemona Esray” is included eighteen blessings and through it is unified the two names as י–א–ה–ד–ו–נ–ה–י and the connection of these two names needs to be done in quietness. The secret of the matter “When they stood their wings softened” (Eze. 1:25), when the Jews stand in shemona esray the Chayot angels soften their wings so no one will hear their voice. Because there is the “Still fine voice” (Kings 1 19:12), the Holy of Holies is the “Shemona esray” because there the king comes.
The “small quiet voice” is the י from the name יהו”ה, and it is from the אדנ”י, from there comes the king who is יהו”ה
This is מטטרו“ן in the image of the “sadeek”, the foundation of the worlds. The river of Dinar is from the side of Gevurah. The river of Plagav (division) is from the side of Chesed, streams of water, which is the river of Kevar כבר. What is כבר? It is the angel מטטרו“ן, who is the רכב chariot of the middle pillar. “And he rode on the כרוב Kruv and flew” (Psalms 18:11), which is the “chariot of fire and horses of fire” (Kings 2 2:11), which include 600,000 chariots. From the side of the tzadik the חי (life) (18) of the worlds, he includes חי myriads (18,000) of chariots. “The chariots of Hashem are two myriads, two thousand שנאן angels” (Psalms 68:18). As the Rabbis of the Mishnah have taught , two thousand שאינן (that are not from) the two myriad . Every myriad is ten thousand. Two myriads is twenty thousand, two thousand שאינן that are not. We remain with (Page 4B) eighteen thousand that descend with מטטרו“ן to receive the eighteen blessings, “Shemona Esray”, of the Jews prayer, to raise them before The Holy Blessed One.
Each Nashama (Soul of Divine intellect) reveals torah according to the source of its soul. These seventy faces of the Torah Parallel the seventy children of Yaakov who entered Egypt. These souls express themselves as sixty myriad. Moshe included all these source souls so he knew all 600,000 explanations to the Torah.1 The Torah Moshe was given in ”pardes” (Heavenly orchard)He taught to all Yisrael. All ”chidushim” (new ideas) in the Torah are through the Nashama of Moshe that illuminates in each and every sadeek by Moshe’s קרני הוד (horns of light) in each and every generation.2
Dat (knowledge) is where Moshe spreads out to the 600,000 root souls of Yisrael. One sees the Shechinah (Divine Presence) according to their dat (Knowledge in their hearts). The humility of Moshe attained all levels of dat , by attaining all levels of humility. By recognizing he was only flesh and unable to do “avodat GOD” (service of GOD) he came to be dependent on the “chayot” (angels of the ruach). This is how the merit of moshe is earned.3 Moshe was joined with mida (attribute) called צור (Rock) which is Malchut.4 Rabbi Yisrael Rozin teaches that one who serves GOD and learns Torah by their own power will not have the help of GOD. In truth these things are ruled by the power of ”Kidusha” and when accomplished properly they are not doing the work at all, but GOD does. GOD walks before him giving him Dat and intellectual powers, He walks before him. GOD sanctifies him at all times more and more by him subduing himself and his humility. In truth he is nullified to GOD, he becoming טפל (himself being secondary).5 Moshe did not tremble when he heard the sound of a angel or the Supernal King.6 Moshe went up to the “rekia” (firmament) and learned Torah from the angel Matto”t every day near sunset for 40 days. During that time Moshe spent 1000 years learning the secret ot Matto”t . Matto”t showed him things of the (depth) תהום which he could not understand, such as how many letters are between א and מ ?.7
The 49 gates of Binna are 49 faces of purity from Matto”t it is the vowel ”cholem”. Moshe is Teferet as it says ”a crown of Teferet (beauty-balance) on his head”. All light of Torah is revealed from Binna (Divine understanding) dressing in Teferet. This is the secret of Z’a and Moshe. The 50 gates allude to the 2 ”Yichudim” (unification of God) of the ”sma”. At the 50th gate vessels turn to light, because of a lack of Malchut of Malchut of vessels and a lack of Ketter of Ketter of lights.The 50th gate reveals complete tikun (fixing). The first ה of י ה ו “ ה has 50 gates Bina.
“ HEAR Israel YHV”H is “Eloheynu” (our God) YHV”H is “echad” (ONE) ”
“I will exalt him because he knows my name.” Call out through saying of the “Sma”, and he will answer you, as it is written, “Then you shall call out and Hashem will answer you” (Isa. 58:9).
Through the 49 letters one unifies twice every day by meditation of the Shema they open the fifty gates of freedom and the dwell with the “Shechinah” (Divine Presence), the correspond to the fifty times there is mentioned the going out of Egypt in the Torah. The sound of the music (of “Sma” goes up with the word אחד (one).
We are to meditate on “echad” (ONE) . This word is spelled alef-chet-dalet; The word alef means “leader” (aluf); the numerical values of chet and dalet are 8, and 4. We are to consider and intend that the God “ of the world” is master of the “chet ” (8) being the seven heavens and earth, and the dalet ( 4) , the four directions. Thus, the chet signifies God’s mastery over the “verticle” dimension including the spiritual realms “above” the physical universe and the dalet signifies GOD’ mastery over the horizontal dimension of space.
Malchut is not underneath netzach-hod -yesod but behind them, as is known. Malchut stands behind the netzach-hod-yesod of Z”a. It follows that the “feet” of Malchut extends down only as far as does the lower extremity of netzach -hod-yesod of Z”a. This being the case, Malchut does not occupy any “verticle” space by itself at all. This is true on weekdays, when Malchut is back-to-back with Z’ Anpin. It is also true on Shabbat, when they turn to face each other that the Malchut occupies “vertical space”.
By the saying of the Sma, the S”M is killed as the name of God, יהו“ה, is the sword of the Holy One Blessed be He. Concerning it, it is said, “The lofty praises of God are in the throat” (Psalms 149:6) through the saying of the Sma, is the “ double edged sword,” of the Holy One Blessed be He that is in the hand of the children of Israel so to be able to kill the S”M. As our sages have said in Talmud tractate Berachot that anyone who reads the Sma on his bed when he goes to sleep at night, it is as if he holds a double edged sword in his hand and all the more so the reading of the Shema in the morning and evening prayers which are commandments of the Torah themselves.
The forty nine faces of purity are the forty nine letters of the section of the upper unification, which is the twenty five letters of Shema Yisroel, and the twenty four letters of the second section of the unification which is “blessed is his honorable name, his kingship forever”. Of theכה) 25) letters it says about them, “כה (so) shall you says to the house of Yaakov” (Exo. 19:3). The 24 (כד) letters include within them the twenty four books of the Bible which is the כד (vessel) that is drawn from the sea of the Torah. It says about it “and tell over to the Jews”, and what do we draw from it? This כד (vessel) is the Shechinah (Divine Presence), which includes the twenty four books of the Torah, this is the “tzadik”, which is the river that flows from the upper Eden. The letter ו‘ comes down, which is the son of י”ה.
“Tzitzit” are the throne, by “Tefilin” Hashem descends upon the throne, because the Jews call to him through the “Sma”. When Hashem sits upon the throne, we need to stand for him through the prayer of the Amidah. His three legions come through the melodies, songs, and songs of praises. They set up the throne for Hashem through the Tzitzit, and they bring him down through their tefilin, and they stand before him in prayer. But for the wicked this is the tying up to all their accusers.
Matto”t in “Malachim” is the aspect of Moshe among ”Nashamot”.8 Before there was created the world all the “ruchot”of the Righteous were hidden in the ”Nashamot” of the Righteous.9 All leaders of every generation were present before GOD in their forms before He created the world. All Nashamot were carved before GOD in heaven with the same form they would have in this world. All the Torah that these souls learn in this world they already knew before entering it. This is all true concerning the righteous. All who are not so, those who distance themselves from GOD. Before they decend to this world they decend into the “thum Raba” (the great abyss). They are stiff necked before entering this world. They throw away the קדשא חולקה (Holy garment of the upper world) GOD gave them, and wander in Nakavah of Thum Raba. Then they decend to this world. By Teshuva they may take their Holy garment back.10 125,000 levels of Nashamot of the Righteous GOD had chosen before creation. They are sent into this world in every generation, and are bound to the “bundle of life” (source of Nashamot).11 There was a earlier Torah existing 2000 years before creation this was hidden with the original light of the first day. This is the Torah of “Y’H”, but our Torah is only the Torah of “V’H”. The Torah starts from chesed (KINDNESS) as from here the world was created. Originally the world was created in judgment, these were the worlds that were created and destroyed. Yet this strict guiding power still interacts in this world with the Righteous. With those who possess the soul level of “Chyah (Soul of Divine creativity wisdom) and “yachidah” (soul of unification with all). These are people who have access to the ancient Torah, which is superior to the Torah that has been revealed. These people GOD had in mind before he created the World. 12
The Zohar says that 2000 years before the world was created GOD played with the Hebrew letters. In another place it says that GOD was looking in the Torah and creating the world. This teaches us that the Hebrew letters are above all dimensions. When a “sofer” (Scribe) writes a Torah scroll he must be clean physically and spiritually, His consciousness should be pure and must go to the Mikveh before he starts writing. Before writing each letter he should touch the scroll with the ink to make a tiny mark and meditate on the letter “י” (Yod)
