106. שָׁנִינוּ, בְּכַמָּה דְרָגוֹת נִקְרָא בֶּן אָדָם: אָדָם, גֶּבֶר, אֱנוֹשׁ, אִישׁ. גָּדוֹל שֶׁבְּכֻלָּם אָדָם, (מִשּׁוּם) שֶׁכָּתוּב (בראשית א) וַיִּבְרָא אֱלֹהִים אֶת הָאָדָם בְּצַלְמוֹ. וְכָתוּב (שם ט) כִּי בְּצֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים עָשָׂה אֶת הָאָדָם. וְלֹא כָתוּב גֶּבֶר, אֱנוֹשׁ, אִישׁ. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, אִם כָּךְ, וַהֲרֵי כָּתוּב (ויקרא א) אָדָם כִּי יַקְרִיב מִכֶּם קָרְבָּן לַה’. מִי צָרִיךְ לְהַקְרִיב קָרְבָּן? מִי שֶׁהוּא חוֹטֵא, וְכָתוּב אָדָם.
107. אָמַר רַבִּי יִצְחָק, בֹּא רְאֵה, קִיּוּם הָעוֹלָם שֶׁל עֶלְיוֹנִים וְתַחְתּוֹנִים הוּא קָרְבָּן, הַנַּחַת שֶׁל הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא. וּמִי רָאוּי לְהַקְרִיב לְפָנָיו אֶת הַנַּחַת הַזּוֹ? הֱוֵה אוֹמֵר זֶה אָדָם, שֶׁיָּקָר מִן הַכֹּל. אָמַר לוֹ, אִם כָּךְ, הִנֵּה כָּתוּב, אָדָם כִּי יִהְיֶה בְעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ וְגוֹ’, וְהָיָה בְעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ לְנֶגַע צָרָעַת. אָמַר לוֹ, אֶת זֶה צָרִיךְ לְטַהֵר הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא יוֹתֵר מֵהַכֹּל, שֶׁמִּי שֶׁהוּא בְּדַרְגָּה עֶלְיוֹנָה שֶׁל כֻּלָּם, לֹא יֵשֵׁב כָּךְ.


Zohar Tazria

Man has four names for four different levels; אדם Adam, Gever גבר, Enosh אנוש, Ish.איש. The name ‘Adam’ is on the highest level, as it is written, Genesis 1:27
“וַיִּבְרָא אֱלֹהִים אֶת הָאָדָם בְּצַלְמוֹ בְּצֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים בָּרָא אֹתוֹ זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה בָּרָא אֹתָם.”
“So God created man (Adam) in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
The other names are not mentioned when man was created.

Rabbi Yitzchak says that those who sin put themselves on a lower level and need to bring offerings to YHVH, yet the verse mentions the name ‘Adam’.
Leviticus 1:2
“דַּבֵּר אֶל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם אָדָם כִּי יַקְרִיב מִכֶּם קָרְבָּן לַיהוָה מִן הַבְּהֵמָה מִן הַבָּקָר וּמִן הַצֹּאן תַּקְרִיבוּ אֶת קָרְבַּנְכֶם.”
“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When any man (Adam) of you brings an offering to YHVH, you shall bring your offering of the livestock—of the herd and of the flock.”

Rabbi Yitzchak explains that the worlds above and below are sustained by the offerings and sacrifices that please the Holy One Blessed be He. ‘Adam’ is the level that is worthy to come closer and please him because ‘Adam’ is more precious than Gever, Enosh, or Ish.
It is also said that a man (Adam) who has leprosy on his skin, would be brought to the priest.
Leviticus 13:2
“אָדָם כִּי יִהְיֶה בְעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ שְׂאֵת אוֹ סַפַּחַת אוֹ בַהֶרֶת וְהָיָה בְעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ לְנֶגַע צָרָעַת וְהוּבָא אֶל אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן אוֹ אֶל אַחַד מִבָּנָיו הַכֹּהֲנִים.”
“When a man (Adam) has on the skin of his body a swelling, a scab, or a bright spot, and it becomes on the skin of his body like a leprous sore, then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests.”
Because ‘Adam’ is on a higher level, the Holy One Blessed be He, wishes to purify him more than others, so he is brought to the priest for purification.

Friday is a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t make a donation in the past week. Giving on Friday, which is an aspect of Yessod, expands the vessel for the Light and honor of Shabbat.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
