95. בֹּא רְאֵה, כְּשֶׁיַּעֲקֹב הָיָה יוֹשֵׁב עַל הַבְּאֵר וְרָאָה הַמַּיִם עוֹלִים אֵלָיו, יָדַע שֶׁשָּׁם תִּזְדַּמֵּן לוֹ אִשְׁתּוֹ. וְכֵן בְּמֹשֶׁה, כְּשֶׁיָּשַׁב עַל הַבְּאֵר, כֵּיוָן שֶׁרָאָה שֶׁהַמַּיִם עוֹלִים אֵלָיו, יָדַע שֶׁאִשְׁתּוֹ תִּזְדַּמֵּן לוֹ לְשָׁם. וְכָךְ הָיָה לְיַעֲקֹב, שֶׁשָּׁם הִזְדַּמְּנָה לוֹ אִשְׁתּוֹ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּתוּב עוֹדֶנּוּ מְדַבֵּר עִמָּם וְרָחֵל בָּאָה עִם הַצֹּאן. וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר רָאָה יַעֲקֹב אֶת רָחֵל וְגוֹ’. מֹשֶׁה, שֶׁכָּתוּב (שמות ב) וַיָּבֹאוּ הָרֹעִים וַיְגָרֲשׁוּם וְגוֹ’, וְשָׁם הִזְדַּמְּנָה לוֹ צִפּוֹרָה, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁאוֹתָהּ הַבְּאֵר גָּרְמָה לָהֶם.
“יַשְׁקוּ כָּל חַיְתוֹ שָׂדָי יִשְׁבְּרוּ פְרָאִים צְמָאָם.”
“They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild donkeys quench their thirst.”
When the rivers come to the well, the south (Chessed), Right column gets stronger. The water unfroze to open the flows down to water the flocks that are the souls as previously explained.
After the souls had the water connection, we read (Genesis 29:3) ‘and they put the stone back in its place on the well’s mouth’. The reason for returning the stone back to its place is that the world needs judgments in Malchut to correct the wicked.
The Nukva is illuminated during the unification that the souls elevate to her for female water. After the unification, the Nukva returns to the previous state, which is closed.
When Jacob sat on the well and saw the water rising up to him he knew that he would see his wife.

“Now while he was still speaking with them, Rachel came with her father’s sheep, for she was a shepherdess.”
It was the same with Moses by the well where he saw Tzipora his wife.
“וַיָּבֹאוּ הָרֹעִים וַיְגָרְשׁוּם וַיָּקָם מֹשֶׁה וַיּוֹשִׁעָן וַיַּשְׁקְ אֶת צֹאנָם.”
“Then the shepherds came and drove them away, but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.”
The well is the secret of the supernal Nukva, and as the souls meet above, they also meet below, in the Nukva of this world.
The Torah is the well that waters our souls and elevates us to Binah, which is the supernal Nukva. When we connect to the well we open a channel that draws Light into our lives and manifests as our souls need.
After Moses brought the Israelites to the border of the Holy Land, he passed away and Joshua inherited the leadership.
God gave him the best advice by telling him that he will be with him through the connection to the Torah. It will give him knowledge and success in everything he does.
“לֹא-יָמוּשׁ סֵפֶר הַתּוֹרָה הַזֶּה מִפִּיךָ, וְהָגִיתָ בּוֹ יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה, לְמַעַן תִּשְׁמֹר לַעֲשׂוֹת, כְּכָל-הַכָּתוּב בּוֹ: כִּי-אָז תַּצְלִיחַ אֶת-דְּרָכֶךָ, וְאָז תַּשְׂכִּיל”
“This Torah shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
