“כֹּל אֲשֶׁר תִּמְצָא יָדְךָ, לַעֲשׂוֹת בְּכֹחֲךָ–עֲשֵׂה”
“Whatsoever thy hand attaineth to do by your might, that do”
Rabbi Shimon quotes a teaching of Rabbi Pinchas, his father in law, and says that we should do all that we can to ‘please’ the Creator when the light of the candle is lit above our heads. That light is the force of the Shechina that joins the Tzadikkim when they study and follow the ways of YHVH.
The Zohar here, references that a person that answers the third Amen of the Kadish with all his might, removes a judgment of 70 years from himself.
In the third Amen we say more than the word ‘Amen’. We add the 7 words with 28 letters that follow the Amen. ” יְהֵא שְׁמֵיהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ, לְעָלַם לְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא” ‘Amen Yehe Shemeh Rabbah…’.
These 7 words represent the Seven Sefirot and the 28 letters have the numerical value of ‘כח’ ‘might, power, force’.
What is Kadish?
The Kadish is an Aramaic text that connects us to the upper three Sefirot and draws light to the seven sefirot below . It is used during the prayers to connect us between spiritual worlds. That high level of Light that we draw cleans all the lower levels.
The condition for enjoying a removal of judgment is the use of our ‘might’, which is the true and pure consciousness of a person together with the 28 letters. Some people scream the words but the Zohar explains here, that it is about focusing the consciousness to draw this light down to the world.
The Kadish can be recited ONLY when there are at least ten men (male = channel, ten Sefirot) that make the connection to the Tree of Life.
