Zohar Ki tetze
Pesach has the aspects of the Right arm, Chessed, Abraham and pure silver. Those who mix led with silver creates a lie, which is a disconnection from the truth, the Light. It’s the same with those who mix Chametz with the Matzah. They lie with the ‘seal’ of the King. Malchut is the aspect of Matzah that connects to Yessod for the light of the King. When the ‘Matzah’ below is corrupted with chametz, the seal of Yessod that depends on Malchut to be pure for it, cannot do the important imprint, which is the transfer of Light to Malchut through the Matzah.
Rosh Hashanah has the aspects of the Left arm, Isaac, the binding of Isaac and judgments of life and death. The binding of the Tefillin on the arm is the aspect of the binding of Isaac is connecting Gevurah with Chassadim like Abraham who is Chessed bound Isaac who is Gevurah.
The Zohar Praises the son that is bound by his father, connect and follow the Torah laws. Praised is the servant that bound by his master to follow his will. He is considered as the son of the King.
Our holidays tightly connected to spiritual events that created ‘impression’ on the cycle of the year. With proper connection as the Torah tells us, we can tap and benefit from the special energy of that event.
We are in the last days of the month of Elul, specifically during the seven days of Creation that started on the 25th of Elul. These days help us rebuild the vessel with the light that initially formed the vessel of the Sefira. On the sixth day of Creation, Adam and Eve were created and sinned on the same day. Rosh Hashanah is the event of judgment that Adam and Eve drew on themselves. Our souls are tiny sparks of theirs and we carry their Tikun. It is also the Tikun of the world. We should do our best to cleanse ourselves from all aspects of impurities that we brought into our vessels. The month of Elul has the positive energy that is blessed with the will of the Creator to create a world for us with opportunities to be the creators of our own world. We use the positive light of this month to help us prepare for the appearance in court where we are judged and given new energy for the next year. Since we lost the immortality state we had before the first sin we need to renew the ‘lease’ on life every year on Rosh Hashanah. The judgment day is on the sixth and seventh day of Creation. Before the court date we avoid all anger and other negativities, remove Bread of Shame by paying personal debts (material and spiritual), give Tzedakah and tithe. We study more Zohar, especially Tikunei Zohar that helps in purifying the vessel. (Text on UnityZohar.com). These studies create garments of light that give us merits when we stand in front of the judge on Rosh Hashanah.
Even if one can’t go to a synagogue to be with a congregation, he’s been judge the same. We can be well prepared even if we stay at home. On the Daily Zohar we have the ultimate guide for Rosh Hashanah and we can study it during the two days. Even at home with the Zohar It would be as if we have Rabbi Shimon next to us, together with the great Kabbalists that we learn from their books and teachings. B”H we all have meaningful connections on Rosh Hashanah and earn great light for the new year.
