21. וְהוּא קוֹרֵא לְיַעֲקֹב וְאוֹמֵר לוֹ: אַתָּה שֶׁהָיָה לְךָ צַעַר בָּנִים, לֵךְ וְקַבֵּל [לַמְּדוֹ] פְּנֵי פְלוֹנִי הַצַּדִּיק שֶׁבָּא לְכָאן, וַאֲנִי אֵלֵךְ עִמְּךָ. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (תהלים כד) מְבַקְשֵׁי פָנֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה. לֹא נֶאֱמַר מְבַקֵּשׁ, אֶלָּא מְבַקְשֵׁי. אָמַר רַבִּי חִיָּיא, מֵרֹאשׁ הַפָּסוּק מַשְׁמָע, שֶׁכָּתוּב זֶה דּוֹר דֹּרְשָׁו וגו’.
22. אָמַר רַבִּי יַעֲקֹב אָמַר רַבִּי חִיָּיא (נ”א עֲקִיבָא), יַעֲקֹב אָבִינוּ הוּא כִּסֵּא הַכָּבוֹד. וְכֵן תָּנָא דְבֵי אֵלִיָּהוּ, יַעֲקֹב אָבִינוּ הוּא כִּסֵּא בִּפְנֵי עַצְמוֹ, שֶׁכַּתוּב (ויקרא כו) וְזָכַרְתִּי אֶת בְּרִיתִי יַעֲקוֹב. בְּרִית כָּרַת הַקָּבָּ”ה לְיַעֲקֹב לְבַדּוֹ יוֹתֵר מִכָּל אֲבוֹתָיו, שֶׁעָשָׂה לוֹ כִּסֵּא הַכָּבוֹד, פְּרָט מִן הָרִאשׁוֹן.
23. רַבִּי אֱלִיעֶזֶר הָיָה יוֹשֵׁב וְהָיָה עוֹסֵק בַּתּוֹרָה. בָּא אֵלָיו רַבִּי עֲקִיבָא וְאָמַר לוֹ, בַּמֶּה מַר עוֹסֵק? אָמַר לוֹ, בַּפָּסוּק הַזֶּה שֶׁכָּתוּב (שמואל-א ב) וְכִסֵּא כָבוֹד יַנְחִלֵם. מַהוּ כִּסֵּא כָבוֹד יַנְחִלֵם? זֶה יַעֲקֹב אָבִינוּ שֶׁעָשָׂה לוֹ כִּסֵּא כָבוֹד לְבַדּוֹ לְקַבֵּל תּוֹרָה בְּעַד נִשְׁמַת הַצַּדִּיק.

Zohar Vayera

Continued from previous Vayera study DZ 1661

When the soul of a Tzadik leaves the world below and ascends to its place in heaven, the Holy One Blessed be He, comes to visit her. Before that he sends Jacob to welcome the soul of the Tzadik.

The following verse explains this revelation of the Zohar.
Psalms 24:6
“זֶה, דּוֹר דֹּרְשָׁו; מְבַקְשֵׁי פָנֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה”
“Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah”

Because Jacob is the aspect of the Central Column and a Tzadik is the aspect of Yessod, Jacob is a bridge to the higher level. Every spiritual ascend should be through him.
In our prayers we address the ‘God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Jacob is the ‘representative’ of the patriarchs because he created the balance between the right (Abraham) and the Left (Isaac). With his 12 sons he constructed the channel of Zeir Anpin and formed the bridge between the upper and lower.

We use the Tzadikim to elevate our prayers through the central column, Jacob, to the upper levels. When we pray to God with the support of Tzadikim our prayers have better chance to be heard.

Use the Tzadikim app on days of Hillulah of Tzadikim to elevate your prayers higher. Read about the Tzadik and light a candle, to make a connection to the Tzadik and ask him to support and take your prayers to the Holy One. Make your prayers with pure heart and ‘poorness’, meaning that you are aware that without the Light nothing material in this world has any value.
