Zohar Ki Tetze
“אָז תִּקְרָא וַיהוָה יַעֲנֶה”
“Then you will call, and YHVH will answer;”
‘calling’ is the aspect of making connections to unify Zeir Anpin and the Shechina in Malchut. ‘Then YHVH will answer’ is the ‘delivery’ of the Light to our level. The spiritual ‘tools’ of the holidays like the Lulav, Myrtle, Willow and Etrog plus the seven elements counts to 11 as the numerical value of the two letters of name וה VH. They also represent Zeir Anpin ו V and Malchut ה H. To complete the connection on the holidays of Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot, we add the Hallel prayers after the silent prayer, Amida. The Hallel is based on the word ’הללו יה’ Halleluiah that means ‘praise יה YH’. The Hallel prayer complete the unification of the upper and lower aspects of the name יהוה YHVH. It elevates the connection to a higher level that is proper for the holiday.
“אָמַרְתִּי אֶעֱלֶה בְתָמָר, אֹחֲזָה בְּסַנְסִנָּיו”
“I said, ‘I will climb the palm tree, I will take hold of its fruit stalks.’”
The word ‘אֶעֱלֶה’ ‘climb’, has four letters that are the initials of Etrog, Willow, Lulav and Myrtle. When we add the meditation of the 10 letters name of Zeir Anpin, יוד-הא-ואו-הא to the four species we get 14. This is the numerical value of ‘hand’, ‘יד’, that has 14 bone segments in the five fingers. We are told to use the Right hand that is Chessed to take the Lulav and use it with the meditation of the name.
The seven day and seven weeks related to the giving of the Torah that is Shavuot also adds to 14. It is the aspect of ‘The High Hand’ of YHVH.
On Rosh Hashanah we have the the sound of the Shofar plus the three elements of Fire, Air and water (DZ 2839) plus the 10 letters of the name we have 14 again.
On Passover the Shechinah is the aspect of ‘the Great hand’ of YHVH that is the side of Chessed. On Rosh Hashanah it’s ‘the Great Hand’ from the side of gevurah. The giving of the Torah is ‘the High Hand’ from the side of the Central column, Tiferet. Three times 14 is 42. With the three patriarchs its 45 and the numerical value of the 10 letters name of Zeir Anpin יוד-הא-ואו-הא.
This is the last paragraph of Zohar Ki Tetze.
בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה לְעוֹלָם: אָמֵן וְאָמֵן
Blessed is YHVH for ever: Amen and Amen
יִמְלֹךְ ה’ לְעוֹלָם אָמֵן וְאָמֵן
May YHVH reign for ever and ever
