58. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, זֶה שֶׁשָּׁנִינוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב קוֹל הַשּׁוֹפָר – יָפֶה הוּא, וְזֶהוּ יַעֲקֹב, שֶׁעָלָה בַמַּחֲשָׁבָה שֶׁל הָאָבוֹת, וְיָצְאוּ כְאֶחָד מִתּוֹךְ שׁוֹפָר, שֶׁהֲרֵי שׁוֹפָר מוֹצִיא מַיִם וְאֵשׁ וְרוּחַ כְּאֶחָד, וְנַעֲשֶׂה מֵהֶם קוֹל. כָּךְ הָאֵם הָעֶלְיוֹנָה מוֹצִיאָה אֶת הָאָבוֹת בְּקוֹל אֶחָד, וּמִתּוֹךְ מַחֲשָׁבָה הִתְעַלּוּ כְאֶחָד בְּקוֹל אֶחָד, וְאוֹתוֹ קוֹל נִקְרָא קוֹל הַשּׁוֹפָר, וְזֶה יַעֲקֹב שֶׁכּוֹלֵל אֶת הָאָבוֹת כְּאֶחָד, וְנִקְרָא קוֹל.
“וַיִּקַּח אַהֲרֹן אֶת אֱלִישֶׁבַע בַּת עַמִּינָדָב אֲחוֹת נַחְשׁוֹן לוֹ לְאִשָּׁה וַתֵּלֶד לוֹ אֶת נָדָב וְאֶת אֲבִיהוּא אֶת אֶלְעָזָר וְאֶת אִיתָמָר.”
“Aaron took as his wife Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab and the sister of Nahshon, and she bore him Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.”
The Zohar reveals that Elisheva was a soulmate for Aaron from the day of Creation same as BatSheva was the soulmate of King David.
Both represented Malchut as their names ends with ‘Sheva’ that is the number 7 that represents Malchut.
Elishevah ‘אלישבע’ unified with Aaron, the high priest with the aspect of mercy and peace. Her name begins with ‘אלי’, a name for the Sefirah of Chessed.
Batsheva ‘בתשבע’ unified with King David with the aspect of judgment as David was in wars most of his life. Batsheva’s first husband died in a war so she can be available to marry her soulmate. Her name begins with ‘בת’, ‘daughter’, ‘daughter of Malchut’, which is judgments and strength.
Rabbi Shimon says that the sound of the Shofar has beauty and the aspect of Jacob. It starts in the thought level, which is Chokmah with the patriarches, which means the inclusion of the Sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah and Tiferet. They come out of the Shofar that is the secret of Binah, the supreme Mother. The elements of water, air and fire form the sound of the Shofar together. Binah, the supreme Mother, is the aspect of Shofar that brought out the patriarchs, Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet as one sound, the central column.
The elements that form the sound come from the heart that is fire. The heart is between the lungs and heat up the air as it comes out with moisture that is water.
The water is the aspect of Right column, Abraham. Fire is Left column, Isaac and air contains both fire and water is Jacob and Central column.
The unification of the proper elements form powerful forces of different aspects.
