Zohar Shelach Lecha
“וַיַּעֲלוּ בַנֶּגֶב, וַיָּבֹא עַד-חֶבְרוֹן, וְשָׁם אֲחִימַן שֵׁשַׁי וְתַלְמַי, יְלִידֵי הָעֲנָק;”
“When they had gone up into the Negev, and he came to Hebron, and there Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the descendants of Anak were”
The verse starts with plural, referring to all of them, then uses single form to state and he, Caleb, came to Hebron.
When Caleb made his mind to visit the patriarchs in the Cave of the Machpelah, the Shechina came to support him and alerted the patriarchs that their children are coming back to the Land as God promised.
The desire of a person creates a vessel. A holy desire creates a vessel that draws the support of the Shechina.
As individuals, we need to be on a high spiritual level to have the support of the Shechina, and it can be done mostly with the support of Zohar reading and study.
Another way to have the support of the Shechina is to be part of a ‘Minyan’. When 10 men assemble for prayer they are called a ‘Minyan’, that means ‘ a count’. The Minyan represents the 10 Sefirot that create a complete and holy vessel that draws the Shechina. They can now make prayers that are not limited, like a prayer of a single person.
According to Jewish spiritual laws we cannot recite Kaddish, Kedusha or Torah reading without a count of 10 men, a Minyan.
Kadish is a special prayer in Aramaic language that is recited to create a spiritual bridge between spiritual worlds when we ascend to receive the Light and when we descend with the Light drawn. After each part we say Amen as a way of building the bridge.
Kedusha – is recited when we do the repetition of the silent prayer. We recite together three times the word ‘Holy’ plus other special words. It is the highest level of the prayer and we do it while standing. With pure consciousness, like angels in front of God connecting to the three columns of the Tree of Life.
Torah reading – we read from the Torah every 72 hours. We read on Shabbat morning, Shabbat afternoon, Monday and Thursday mornings. Shabbat Morning we read the weekly portion in 7 ‘elevations’ (‘Aliyot’ in Hebrew) from Chessed to Malchut. On Shabbat afternoon, we are on a higher level and we read from the portion of the coming week. We make three Aliyot for Chokmah, Binah and Da’at. On Monday, we read with Aliyot for Chessed, Gevurah, and Tiferet, On Thursday for Netzach, Hod, and Yessod, and on Shabbat, that is the aspect of Malchut, we read the entire Portion with 7 Aliyot.
When the Shechinah is with us we can have higher spiritual elevation and our prayers have better vessel to be carried up and be heard.
Rabbi Shimon made the Zohar to support the Shechina in the generations before the coming of Mashiach.
The Daily Zohar and the Unity Zohar are based on these principals to draw the Shechina into our daily studies. We prepare the Daily Zohar text as an image so thousands around the world see the same exact text, listen to the same Zohar reading, and read the same study.
The Unity Zohar is a system that holds the entire Zohar in digital form and delivers the next page (two paragraphs) of Zohar to each reader so together we read from the same book and each one of the readers has the merit as if he completed the entire Zohar by him/herself.
The connection to the Daily Zohar and Unity Zohar is your daily Minyan and, with the support of the Tzadikim application and connection, your vessel is definitely closer to be a holy one.
May all your good wishes and prayers come true.
