Daily Zohar # 3662 – Shelach Lecha – Run to the strong tower
Zohar Shelach Lecha
(The beginning of his study is missing from the original Zohar.)
Among all the towers, there is one tower of precious stone in the middle. It reaches high in the sky and cannot be seen until the time it will reveal. The head of the Yeshiva saw it, and on it was written (Proverb 18:10)
“מִגְדַּל עֹז שֵׁם יְהוָה בּוֹ יָרוּץ צַדִּיק וְנִשְׂגָּב.”
“The name of YHVH is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and exalted.”
He explained that the ‘strong tower’ is the congregation of Israel, meaning Malchut. ‘righteous run to it’ refers to a Tzadik that is Yessod. He ‘Run’ ‘ירוץ’ to it to express his desire to connect to the ‘strong tower’ that is exalted and will bever fall.
Before he left the world, Rabbi Cruspedai, who has a beloved heart, explained this verse saying that ‘Strong Tower’ is the ark that we put the Torah in it, which is called ‘עז’ ‘Strong.’ We take it out of the chamber that has the shape of the inner chamber that is the secret of Mother that brings out the Torah that is Zeir Anpin. The ‘Tower’ is the ark, and the YHVH name has a shape that is Malchut. It should have six levels corresponding to the sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, and Yessod of Malchut.
Friday would be 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.
