Daily Zohar 4217
182. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר הָיָה הוֹלֵךְ מִקַּפּוֹטְקִיָּא לְלוֹד, וְהָיוּ עִמּוֹ רַבִּי יֵיסָא וְרַבִּי חִזְקִיָּה. פָּתַח רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר וְאָמַר, (ישעיה נא) וָאָשִׂם דְּבָרַי בְּפִיךָ וּבְצֵל יָדִי כִּסִּיתִיךָ וְגוֹ’. שָׁנִינוּ, כָּל אָדָם שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּדֵּל בְּדִבְרֵי תוֹרָה וְשִׂפְתוֹתָיו מְרַחֲשׁוֹת תּוֹרָה, הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא מְכַסֶּה עָלָיו, וּשְׁכִינָה פּוֹרֶשֶׂת כְּנָפֶיהָ עָלָיו. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וָאָשִׂם דְּבָרַי בְּפִיךָ וּבְצֵל יָדִי כִּסִּיתִיךָ. וְלֹא עוֹד, אֶלָּא שֶׁהוּא מְקַיֵּם אֶת הָעוֹלָם, וְהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא שָׂמֵחַ עִמּוֹ כְּאִלּוּ אוֹתוֹ יוֹם נָטַע שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (שם) לִנְטֹעַ שָׁמַיִם וְלִיסֹד אָרֶץ וְלֵאמֹר לְצִיּוֹן עַמִּי אָתָּה.
183. מִכָּאן לָמַדְנוּ שֶׁיִּשְׂרָאֵל נִקְרְאוּ בַשֵּׁם שֶׁל צִיּוֹן, שֶׁכָּתוּב וְלֵאמֹר לְצִיּוֹן עַמִּי אָתָּה. וְרָאִיתִי שֶׁכְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל נִקְרֵאת בַּשֵּׁם שֶׁל צִיּוֹן, שֶׁכָּתוּב (שם א) צִיּוֹן בְּמִשְׁפָּט תִּפָּדֶה וְשָׁבֶיהָ בִּצְדָקָה.

Rabbi Yitzchak says when Aaron, who is the secret of the Right line, Chessed of Zeir Anpin, moves to bring abundance to Malchut, everyone is in the move with him, that is, the three lines, Right, Left, and Center until the Congregation of Israel is blessed from the three lines. On the upper levels, the Sefirot of Zeir Anpin are blessed, and on the lower level, the Sefirot of the Malchut are blessed by the work of the priest.
Then it is written;
“בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה מִצִּיּוֹן שֹׁכֵן יְרוּשָׁלִָם הַלְלוּ יָהּ.”
“Blessed be YHVH out of Zion, Who dwells in Jerusalem! Praise YH! (Hallelujah) ”
Zeir Anpin, called YHVH, is blessed from Zion, which is Yessod of Malchut.
“וּבָרוּךְ שֵׁם כְּבוֹדוֹ לְעוֹלָם וְיִמָּלֵא כְבוֹדוֹ אֶת כֹּל הָאָרֶץ אָמֵן וְאָמֵן.”
“And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen.”
The name is Glory, which is Malchut, and is blessed from Zeir Anpin.
Rabbi Elazar was walking from Kapotakia to Lod, and Rabbi Yossi and Rabbi Hezekiah were with him. Rabbi Elazar opened and said;
“וָאָשִׂים דְּבָרַי בְּפִיךָ וּבְצֵל יָדִי כִּסִּיתִיךָ לִנְטֹעַ שָׁמַיִם וְלִיסֹד אָרֶץ וְלֵאמֹר לְצִיּוֹן עַמִּי אָתָּה.”
“And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’”
We learned that every person who deals with the Torah and his lips speak it, the Holy One, Blessed Be He, covers him with protection, and the Shechina spreads her wings over him. Furthermore, that person is considered as if he sustains the world with his Torah. The Holy One, Blessed be He rejoices with him, as on the day he planted (Created) heaven and earth. This is what the verse concludes, “לִנְטֹעַ שָׁמַיִם וְלִיסֹד אָרֶץ וְלֵאמֹר לְצִיּוֹן עַמִּי אָתָּה” “ to plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth”.
From this we learned that Israel is called by the name of Zion, as it is written “And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’ ”
We have seen that the Congregation of Israel is called by the name of Zion, which is written,
“צִיּוֹן בְּמִשְׁפָּט תִּפָּדֶה וְשָׁבֶיהָ בִּצְדָקָה.”
“Zion shall be redeemed with justice, And her penitents with righteousness.”
We study the Torah on all levels because the whole Creation depends on it.
The upcoming Shabbat, known as Shabbat Hagadol or “The Great Shabbat,” is observed before the Passover holiday. This day is named as such due to the miracles that Hashem performed for the Israelites during their transition from slavery to freedom, which marked their first redemption. The Haftara portion read on this Shabbat relates to the “Great day” of the Final Redemption, as mentioned in Malachi 3:23, which speaks of the prophet Elijah announcing the coming of the awesome and fearful day of YHVH.
Malachi 3:23 “הִנֵּה אָנֹכִי שֹׁלֵחַ לָכֶם אֵת אֵלִיָּה הַנָּבִיא לִפְנֵי בּוֹא יוֹם יְהוָה הַגָּדוֹל וְהַנּוֹרָא.” “I will send the prophet Elijah to you before the coming of the awesome (Great הגדול), fearful day of YHVH”
Passover is a holiday that commemorates the Israelites’ journey from exile and bondage to freedom. During this time, we anticipate the arrival of Elijah, who will announce the coming of Mashiach. It is crucial to give Tzedakah and strengthen our spiritual connection before this Shabbat and holiday by supporting those who have helped us achieve our spiritual freedom, especially those who have not received our support recently.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, and support the Daily Zohar projects, 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.
