Daily Zohar # 3640 – Emor – The bride that take from all
152. לְמֶלֶךְ שֶׁהָיוּ לוֹ בָּנִים וּבַת אַחַת, הִתְקִין סְעוּדָה לְכָל הַבָּנִים, לֹא נִמְצְאָה אוֹתָהּ הַבַּת עַל הַשֻּׁלְחָן. כְּשֶׁבָּאָה, אָמְרָה לַמֶּלֶךְ: אֲדוֹנִי, אֶת כָּל אַחַי הִזְמַנְתָּ וְנָתַתָּ לְכָל אֶחָד כֵּלִים יְדוּעִים, וְלִי לֹא נָתַתָּ חֵלֶק בֵּינֵיהֶם. אָמַר לָהּ: חַיַּיִךְ בִּתִּי, הַכְּלִי שֶׁלָּךְ יִמָּצֵא עַל אֶחָד פִּי שְׁנַיִם, הֲרֵי כֻּלָּם יִתְּנוּ לָךְ מֵחֶלְקָם. נִמְצָא לְאַחַר בְּיָדֶיהָ חֲלָקִים, עַל כָּל אֶחָד פִּי שְׁנַיִם מֵהַכֹּל. כָּךְ כְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל, מֵהַכֹּל נָטְלָה חֲלָקִים, וְעַל כֵּן נִקְרֵאת כַּלָּה כְּלוּלָה, כְּכַלָּה שֶׁכֻּלָּם מַזְמִינִים לָהּ כֵּלִים וַחֲלָקִים וְתַכְשִׁיטִים. כָּךְ הִיא כְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל, הַחִדּוּשׁ שֶׁלָּהּ (שִׂמְחָתָהּ) בַּכֹּל, וְכֻלָּם נוֹתְנִים לָהּ חֲלָקִים וְכֵלִים.
On Shavuot, the people bring the first fruits of their crops to the priest. They needed to say and explain the connection between the tree on earth that reached a complete state as the Tree above, which is Zeir Anpin that has twelve borders, and 70 branches of the name of 72 that represents the 70 members of the Sanhedrin, and two witnesses. Laban the Aramean inflicted a blemish on Z” A because he wanted to destroy it, but the Holy One Blessed be He saved the world for the twelve tribes that support the twelve borders of the tree,Z”A.
Zeir Anpin holds and depends on the bond of faith that is Malchut, and for that, Malchut is called a ‘new offering.’ The renewal connection of upper and lower brings joy to all levels, including the moon that is Malchut. At the time of the new moon, Malchut has her own happiness because of the renewed bond of faith with Zeir Anpin.
This is like a king that has sons and one daughter. He made a feast for his sons but without the daughter. She came and told the king, “my master, you invited my brothers and gave them portions, but you didn’t include me with them. The King told her that her portion would be double because each one of the sons would give her portions from their share. In the end, the daughter had more than them.
The Congregation of Israel took portions from each level, also from Chokmah and from Chassadim. Because of that, she is called ‘Bride’ ‘כלה’ that means that she includes everything. ‘כל’ ‘ה.’ The word ‘כל’ means ‘All’ (Inclusion), and ‘ה’ implies ה of Malchut.
All levels above Malchut give her Lights and vessels.
On Shavuot, we complete the process of counting the Omer. The seven weeks of counting represent the construction of the seven sefirot of Zeir Anpin. Then the Light of Zeir Anpin can be revealed. This is the time that the Torah is revealed.
On Shavuot, the people need to bring the first fruits of their trees to the priest because the first fruits represent the highest light, and they must be given to the priests. The 70 members of the Sanhedrin represent a complete connection to Zeir Anpin. That is why their judgments were final and set as new laws from that point on. The two witnesses validate the ruling of the court and add the aspect of connection to the highest level of Chokmah with the name יוד-הי-ויו-הי that is numerically 72.
The ‘Bride’ is Malchut that receives from all her ‘brothers’. Even though they have their own share of Light from the Father and Mother, they give her because she makes them ‘shine’.
Friday is a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t donate 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.
