Zohar Ki Tisa
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם, אַהֲרֹן, פָּרְקוּ נִזְמֵי הַזָּהָב, אֲשֶׁר בְּאָזְנֵי נְשֵׁיכֶם בְּנֵיכֶם וּבְנֹתֵיכֶם; וְהָבִיאוּ, אֵלָי”
“Aaron said to them, “Tear off the gold rings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.””
The people had a lot of gold, but Aaron asked them to tear off the gold from the ears of their wives and children. Aaron expected the people to have the objections of their family to give the gold they are wearing and delay the process until Moses comes back.
There were about two and a half million Erev Rav that came out of Egypt attached to the Israelites. They were not converted, and their presence was like unwanted skin growth.
“וַיִּקַּח מִיָּדָם, וַיָּצַר אֹתוֹ בַּחֶרֶט, וַיַּעֲשֵׂהוּ, עֵגֶל מַסֵּכָה; וַיֹּאמְרוּ–אֵלֶּה אֱלֹהֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלוּךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם”
“He took this from their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool and made it into a molten calf; and they said, “This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.””
Yunus and Yombrus were the top wizards and leaders of the Erev Rav. They were the children of Balaam and knew how to make the Golden Calf. Aaron didn’t see their witchcraft on the gold. One of them had two third of the gold in his hand, and the other had one third. That process was needed together with the Right aspect of Aaron to bring the Golden Calf to life.
The Erev Rav still exists in our time. They can be found among the Israelites all over the world with souls that have aspects of negativity from those who came out from Egypt. They are always ‘attached’ like growth to ‘bodies’ that produce well in all aspects of life. They are greedy with a desire to control everything. Many of them can be found as leaders of countries and communities. Even Rabbis can be from the Erev Rav, especially those who seek to have greater influence. Do not judge people, avoid those who are not true to the teachings of Torah and Kabbalah. If they offer ‘shortcuts,’ avoid!. Ask them how to make a gram of gold or a simple way to boil water in their hands. They are all charlatans. If they offer big and deliver little, they can not be trusted. Avoid them!
We wait for Moses even if he is late because when he comes, he will bring with him all the light we need, needing no ‘idols’ of this world.
