Zohar Lech Lecha
“וַיַּעֲבֹר אַבְרָם, בָּאָרֶץ, עַד מְקוֹם שְׁכֶם, עַד אֵלוֹן מוֹרֶה; וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי, אָז בָּאָרֶץ”
“Abram passed through the land as far as the site of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. Now the Canaanite was then in the land.”
Rabbi Aba says that many people converted by Abram and how can we say that all of them came with him. Rabbi Elazar said that this is true because the people were called ‘the people of Abram’s God’. Abram passed through the land without fear because many came with him.
Rabbi Aba continues with his explanation and say that if the verse (12:5) was saying “and the souls which they had made in Haran” then it implies many, but the verse says “and also the souls…” which implies that it includes the merits of the souls that came with him. Abram passed through the land without fear because these merits walked with him.
Those who connect others to YHVH and the Torah earn merits that stay with them forever.
Rabbi Shimon explains why God first revealed himself to Abram with the command “Lech Lecha” “Go out for you…”. Before this point the Holy One Blessed be He didn’t speak to Abraham. The reason for that comes from the numerical value of the words “לֶךְ-לְךָ” “Lech Lecha” that is 100. It implies that Abram will have a son at the age of 100.
Helping others connect to the Light open new channels of light to the world that we are part of it and that earn us a lot of merits. Share your studies with people and connect them to pure channels of Light. As you gather more merits, you will experience life without fear.
I am sorry to inform you on the death of the mother of our dear friend Lea. Most of you read her wise comments and contributions to most of the DZ studies.
It would be supportive if you read few Zohar paragraphs on UnityZohar.com (of from the Unity Zohar app) for the soul elevation of her mother, Chanah bat Moshe. Making Zohar study for the soul elevation of a person is a great Mitzvah.
You may post your condolences and support for Lea in the comments section below.
