56. וַיְדַבֵּר ה’ אֶל מֹשֶׁה בְּמִדְבַּר סִינַי וְגוֹ’. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, מָה הַטַּעַם הִזְהִירָם כָּאן עַל פֶּסַח, וַהֲרֵי נִתְבָּאֵר לָהֶם בְּמִצְרַיִם? אֶלָּא בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית זֶה הָיָה, שֶׁחָשְׁבוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל שֶׁפֶּסַח זֶה הוּא רַק בְּמִצְרַיִם, וְכֵיוָן שֶׁעָשׂוּ אוֹתוֹ פַּעַם אַחַת בְּמִצְרַיִם, חָשְׁבוּ שֶׁלֹּא צָרִיךְ יוֹתֵר. בָּא הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא וְהִזְהִירָם עָלָיו, שֶׁלֹּא יַחְשְׁבוּ שֶׁעָבַר זְמַנּוֹ בְּמִצְרַיִם וְלֹא יִצְטָרֵךְ. בִּגְלַל זֶה בְּמִדְבַּר סִינַי בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית, לְהַתְקִין לָהֶם לְדוֹרֵי דוֹרוֹת.

In addition, after 50 years the voice of the singing is weakened when it needs to be strong at all the times from all sides.
“מִי חָכָם וְיָבֵן אֵלֶּה נָבוֹן וְיֵדָעֵם כִּי יְשָׁרִים דַּרְכֵי יְהוָה וְצַדִּקִים יֵלְכוּ בָם וּפֹשְׁעִים יִכָּשְׁלוּ בָם”
“Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; Whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of YHVH are straightforward, And the righteous will walk in them, But transgressors will stumble in them.”
‘straightforward’ is the aspect of the Central column and we should always balance and unify the Right and the Left to have the strength we need for righteous work.
“יְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל מֹשֶׁה בְמִדְבַּר סִינַי בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית לְצֵאתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן לֵאמֹר”
“וְיַעֲשׂוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת-הַפָּסַח, בְּמוֹעֲדוֹ”
“Thus YHVH spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying,”
“”Now, let the sons of Israel observe the Passover at its appointed time.”
Rabbi Aba asks why God reminded the Israelites to celebrate Passover. He explains that the first time they celebrated Passover was in Egypt and now that they are out of there, they may think that there is no need to repeat it.
God warns them not to think that Passover is a temporary event from the past but it should be repeated every year for all generations.
Passover is a celebration of freedom. We were freed from the slavery in Egypt in order to be able to receive the Torah and connect to our God. First times was just a first step that released us from the control of the other-side. We received the Torah and until the Final Redemption we are working for ourselves to have big and pure vessels. The holiday of Passover reminds us that the true freedom will come in the future after we correct ourselves and the world around us with the Light we draw from the Torah, especially through the studies of the Zohar.
Those who have the merits like the readers of Zohar studies earn the ‘ticket’ for the ultimate freedom, which is immortal state in the kingdom of Mashiach.
