Hebrew translation:


97. בָּאוּ רַבִּי חִזְקִיָּה וְרַבִּי יְהוּדָה וְנָשְׁקוּ אֶת יָדוֹ. בָּכוּ וְאָמְרוּ: אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקֵנוּ שֶׁשָּׁאַלְנוּ אֶת זֶה. אַשְׁרֵי הַדּוֹר שֶׁאַתָּה שָׁרוּי בְּתוֹכוֹ.
98. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, כָּתוּב זֶה קָרְבַּן אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֲשֶׁר יַקְרִיבוּ לַה’. בֹּא רְאֵה, הָרְשָׁעִים שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם גּוֹרְמִים לַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהִסְתַּלֵּק מִכְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (משלי טז) אִישׁ תַּהְפֻּכוֹת יְשַׁלַּח מָדוֹן וְנִרְגָּן מַפְרִיד אַלּוּף. מִי הָאַלּוּף? זֶה הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא (שֶׁהוּא אַלּוּפוֹ שֶׁל עוֹלָם), כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר אַלּוּף נְעוּרַי אָתָּה. וְהֵם (הָרְשָׁעִים) מַפְרִידִים אֶת זֹאת מִזֶּה, שֶׁהִיא שְׁלוֹם הַבַּיִת, וְהֵם זִוּוּג אֶחָד.
99. בָּא אַהֲרֹן הַקָּדוֹשׁ וּבָנָיו, וְעַל יְדֵיהֶם נִקְרָבִים שְׁנֵיהֶם וּמִזְדַּוְּגִים זֶה עִם זֹאת. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב, בְּזֹאת יָבֹא אַהֲרֹן אֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ. זֶה קָרְבַּן אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו. וְהֵם מְזַוְּגִים אֶת הַמֶּלֶךְ הַקָּדוֹשׁ הָעֶלְיוֹן בַּגְּבִירָה, וְעַל יְדֵיהֶם מִתְבָּרְכִים עֶלְיוֹנִים וְתַחְתּוֹנִים וְנִמְצָאוֹת בְּרָכוֹת בְּכָל הָעוֹלָמוֹת, וְנִמְצָא הַכֹּל אֶחָד בְּלִי פֵרוּד.
100. וְאִם תֹּאמַר, לָמָּה לֹא כָתוּב זֹאת קָרְבָּן, לְקָרֵב זֹאת לִמְקוֹמָהּ? לֹא כָּךְ, שֶׁהֲרֵי הַכֹּהֵן מִמַּעְלָה שׁוֹרֶה לְהָבִיא אֶת הַזִּוּוּג לִכְנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַד שֶׁמַּגִּיעַ לְזֶה הַזֶּה לְזַוְּגוֹ עִם זֹאת וּלְקָרְבָם כְּאֶחָד, וְלָכֵן הַכֹּהֵן מַשְׁלִים אֶת הַקָּרְבָּן וּמְקָרֵב אֶת הַזִּוּוּג. אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקָם בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה וּבָעוֹלָם הַבָּא.


Zohar Tzav

Rabbi Chizkiya and Rabbi Yehuda were happy that they asked Rabbi Shimon about ‘God is angry everyday’. They kissed his hands, cried and praised the generation that Rabbi Shimon is among them.

Leviticus 6:13
“זֶה קָרְבַּן אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֲשֶׁר יַקְרִיבוּ לַיהוָה בְּיוֹם הִמָּשַׁח אֹתוֹ עֲשִׂירִת הָאֵפָה סֹלֶת מִנְחָה תָּמִיד מַחֲצִיתָהּ בַּבֹּקֶר וּמַחֲצִיתָהּ בָּעָרֶב.”
“This is the offering of Aaron and his sons, which they shall offer to YHVH, beginning on the day when he is anointed: one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour as a daily grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it at night.”
The wicked of the world cause the Holy One Blessed be He to separate himself from the Shechina as we read in Proverbs 16:28
“אִישׁ תַּהְפֻּכוֹת יְשַׁלַּח מָדוֹן וְנִרְגָּן מַפְרִיד אַלּוּף”
“A perverse man sows strife, And a complainer separates the best of friends.”
The ‘best of friends’ ‘אַלּוּף’ is the Holy One Blessed be He that is forced to disconnect from Yessod because of the wicked that disrupts the peace that is Yessod and the connection to the Shechina in Malchut is lost.

Aaron and his son, the priests, serve the Holy to unify Zeir Anpin and Malchut.
Leviticus 16:3
“בְּזֹאת יָבֹא אַהֲרֹן, אֶל-הַקֹּדֶשׁ:‘
“With this (זֹאת) Aaron will enter into the Holy”

The Zohar explains that ‘this’ is the Shechina in Malchut. The Shechinah accompanies Aaron when he enters the Holy of Holies for the unification of YHVH, Zeir Anpin, and the Shechina. The High Priest does this process so he can draw Light for all the lower worlds without separation.

In Leviticus 6:13 we read ‘this’ ‘זה’ in a male form and in Leviticus 16:3 ‘this’ ‘זאת’ is in a female form. Both places are related to the unification of Zeir Anpin and Malchut and the Zohar asks about the difference between them. Then explains that when the female form is used then it is related to the service that the priest makes to connect Malchut to Zeir Anpin, from lower to upper level. When the male form is used then it is related to the supernal priest that is Chessed of Zeir Anpin that connects Zeir Anpin to Malchut, from upper to lower level.

We can make the unification of Malchut to Zeir Anpin with our connection to the study of the Torah. We are the aspect of Malchut, a vessel, and the Torah and its channels of Light that is Zohar and studies of Kabbalah is the aspect of Zeir Anpin that brings blessings to our world.

Because of the Coronavirus pandemic that forced us into quarantine, we can’t pray in Minyan and draw the Shechina for a higher level connection. This situation creates a great lack of Light in the world.
I am certain that there are many secret places in Israel that conduct prayers and maintain a connection to the Torah, Zeir Anpin, especially on Shabbat. They keep the flow of light and unification of the Shechinah with Zeir Anpin and draw great light to the world.

The good side is that we may have the Mashiach in the world to balance the lack of Light and stop the world from its destruction. The other positive aspect is that the sages said that Mashiach would come if we are all with merits or if we are all without.
The ‘huge’ absence of Light forms a giant empty vessel that would attract Mashiach to come and lead us from Darkness to Light and freedom.

I hope that each one of us, especially myself feel the pain of missing proper Shabbat services. We are just before Passover when we celebrate the event of breaking free from slavery. We are locked in our homes and B”H this year we will experience true freedom from all chaos.
At the end of reading the Haggadah of Pesach, we sing ‘לשנה הבאה בירושלים הבנויה’, ‘Next year in the built Jerusalem’. These words express the desire to see Jerusalem rebuilt with the Holy Temple and Mashiach as king ruling with peace over the whole world.
