Zohar Pinchas, Vol. 20 (English)/Vol 15 (Hebrew)
Continued from previous DZ
Our prayers replace the process of sacrifices that were made in the Holy Temple. The Shechina on the lower levels is dependent on us for the renewal of her unification with Zeir Anpin. The Zohar explains that the Shechina is renewed on the holiday of Shavout, on the fiftieth day, that is 7 weeks after Passover. We read from the entire Torah and Bible to ‘pick’ 24 ‘decorations’ for the ‘bride’, כלה in Hebrew. This is the name for the Shechina and we elevate her for unification with Zeir Anpin.
The word כלה, ‘bride’ is כל and ה . כל is numerically 50 and is the aspect of Yessod that includes the five Sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach and Hod. Each Sefira has its own 10 Sefirot and the number 50 also represents the 50 gates from Yessod to Binah. The Letter ה H is for Malchut, the Shechina that needs Yessod for the unification of the renewal.
The sacrifices made on that day also have the aspect of 50 (Numbers 28:28) “and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for each bullock, two tenth parts for the one ram”. Three tenth is 30 and two tenth is 20 and together 50 to create a bridge from Yessod to Binah.
Rabbi Shimon, who saw the future and the little spiritual connections wrote the Zohar and especially the Tikunei Zohar to support the Shechina in the last generations before the coming of Mashiach. Without the Zohar the Shechina is weak and unable to support us. It’s in our best interest to study the Zohar and help others who are open for it, follow our path, connect to the Zohar, support the Shechina and expedite the coming of Mashiach.
