Daily Zohar # 2836 – Ki Tetze – The 'recruiter'
Zohar Ki Tetze
Rabbi Shimon forced Elijah to take a mission of revealing the secrets of the Faithful Shepherd among the leaders of Torah scholars. Rabbi Shimon stated that he is a messenger of the master of the world and Elijah doesn’t need to ask for God’s permission to follow Rabbi Shimon’s request. There should not be any delays and the mission should be executed not within a week, a month or a year but immediately.
Elijah can move between worlds and reveal himself to the leaders of Torah Scholars that are Tzadikim. Rabbi Shimon wants Elijah to share the studies of the Zohar that they had with the Faithful Shepherd, Moses, to bring all Torah scholars to the elevated level of the Zohar.
The study they just finished was about the ways to elevate the Shechina and Draw light form Keter. It was an important study and knowing well his mission in this world, Rabbi Shimon ‘recruited’ Elijah to the holy job of spreading the studies of the Zohar.
With the next paragraph we start here a new study with the Faithful Shepherd about Pesach, Chametz and Matzah
“לֵיל שִׁמֻּרִים הוּא לַיהוָה, לְהוֹצִיאָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם: הוּא-הַלַּיְלָה הַזֶּה לַיהוָה, שִׁמֻּרִים לְכָל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לְדֹרֹתָם”
“It was a night of vigil in honor of YHVH, because he would bring them out of the land of Egypt. This same night is in honor of YHVH, a night vigil for all the Israelites throughout their generations.”
When the Israelites left Egypt at night, they had the protection of the Shechina upon them. The light of this night as the Torah describes is repeated every year for all generations. We celebrate it as the night of the Passover Seder. The vessels we use on that night should be observed to be pure from any kind of Chametz together with all foods and drinks.
This observance makes the body holy, pure and healthy on the physical level. The soul becomes holy of holies and protected from the evil inclination. This state of protection is called (Psalms 5:5) “evil shall not sojourn with you”.
The evil inclination cannot come close to vessels that have the Shechina in them.
Leviticus 22:10 “No stranger shall eat of the holy thing;”. The stranger is the Evil side that cannot come closer to the holy.
