Daily Zohar # 4365 – Beresheet – How to receive a true Tzedaka
Daily Zohar 4365
Continued from previous DZ
What is the prayer of the poor? The evening prayer has the aspect of Nukva, by itself, without her husband, and because she is without her husband, she is poor and dry.
A Tzadik, a poor and dry person, is from the seed of Jacob, which is under the control of all the world’s nations, similar to the evening prayer, which is the night of exile.
The Shabbat prayer is Tzedaka for the poor; as the Mishnah scholars say, a sun on Shabbat is a charity for the poor (תענית 8ב *). Therefore, a person, when praying for the Shechina during the Amida prayer, should be like a poor man at the king’s gate. He wraps himself in the mitzvah of a Tzitzit like a poor man and wears Tefillin like a needy man at the entrance, which is אדני ADNY, numerically 65 as ‘היכל, הכלי,’ “Vessel.” Be like an empty vessel, and this is “אֲדֹנָ” י שְׂפָתַי תִּפְתָּח,” “ADNY, open my lips and my mouth shall declare your praise.”
The ‘sun’ on Shabbat is the aspect of Zeir Anpin that is in unification with the Nukva, like Chokmah and Binah on the higher level. The Light of the connection is the aspect of Tzedaka that is a gift for the poor.
When we pray as poor, lacking sustenance, meaning with an empty vessel, we receive the Tzedaka of Light from above that fulfills our needs in this world.
Giving Tzedaka is a high level of connection to Yessod of Zeir Anpin, the funnel of all sustenance to the world.

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.
