On the fiftieth we connect to Binah and it gives us the aspect of the Redemption. When we return to the source of life we are back to the state of purity and enjoy complete fulfilment.
The Zohar reveals that the Israelites were redeemed from slavery in Egypt because of the fiftieth gate, which is Binah.
“וַיָּבֹאוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּתוֹךְ הַיָּם, בַּיַּבָּשָׁה; וְהַמַּיִם לָהֶם חוֹמָה, מִימִינָם וּמִשְּׂמֹאלָם”
“And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.”
This verse follows the three verses that form the 72 names (Exodus 14:19,20,21). The Zohar explains that those who have ownership of the Torah, meaning those who hold on to it and study it, have ‘walls’ of protection, like when the Israelites split and crossed the Red Sea.
The Zohar is the highest level of Torah study and it gives us connection to the gate of Binah. The daily study, like we do here on the Daily Zohar, provides the aspect of counting that leads us to the fiftieth gate.
Many students on the Daily Zohar told be that their soul and their lives went through significant and positive changed since they started following the Daily Zohar.
You don’t need the Daily Zohar to achieve such a change but you do need Zohar study on a daily and regular basis. The daily study draws the light of the Zohar and blocks negativity from entering our vessels.
The power of the Daily Zohar is because the same study is done by many people from around the world. They see, listen, and read the same text. We bring the text in image format so the Zohar text will appear the same in the email message or the internet browser.
On Lag B’Omer the Daily Zohar enters the seventh year of operation. We just passed the count of 1800 DZ studies and, as we all know, 18 is the aspect of life. B”H the seventh year, with your support, brings us all a higher level of connection to Binah and, by the merit of Rabbi Shimon and the Zohar, may the Daily Zohar build walls of protection for all the students.
