Daily Zohar # 1811 – Behar – The seventh
The seventh is very significant spiritually. Shabbat is the seventh and we need to rest and make higher level connection to the Torah with seven ‘Aliyot’, which is a process of calling seven people to read the Torah portion of Shabbat.
The seventh year is called ‘Shmita’, a sabbatical year, when the land is given a rest and the poor can enjoy its fruit for free. This spiritual law is given to us so we know that God is the one that gives the energy of growth to the land.
The jubilee year is after seven periods of seven years. The Hebrew name is יובלא and it has the numerical value of 49. The following year is a year of freedom. Slaves are released and land is returned to their original owners.
We are now during the counting of the Omer, a process of counting seven weeks. On the fiftieth day we celebrate Shavuot, which is the day we received the Torah on Mount Sinai.
There are many secrets concealed in the Torah. Using the cycle of seven, 49 (7×7), and seventy, and with the letters of the Torah, we reveal many amazing secrets.
On Lag B’Omer, the Daily Zohar celebrates 6 years and is entering the seventh year. B”H we’ll be able to continue strong with your support and reveal even greater light of the Zohar in the world.
