165. וּמֵעַל כֻּלָּם קְטֹרֶת, שֶׁהִיא שְׁלֵמָה מֵהַכֹּל, וְלֹא בָאָה עַל חֵטְא וְלֹא עַל אָשָׁם וְלֹא עַל עָוֹן, אֶלָּא עַל שִׂמְחָה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר(משלי כז) שֶׁמֶן וּקְטֹרֶת יְשַׂמַּח לֵב, וַהֲרֵי פֵּרְשׁוּהָ. וְלָכֵן קְטֹרֶת לֹא קְרֵבָה אֶלָּא בִּזְמַן שֶׁשֶּׁמֶן קָרֵב, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב(שמות ל)וְהִקְטִיר עָלָיו אַהֲרֹן קְטֹרֶת סַמִּים בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר בְּהֵטִיבוֹ אֶת הַנֵּרוֹת יַקְטִירֶנָּה. וְכָתוּב(שם) וּבְהַעֲלוֹת אַהֲרֹן אֶת הַנֵּרוֹת בֵּין הָעַרְבַּיִם יַקְטִירֶנָּה. מִשּׁוּם שֶׁנִּמְצָאִים שֶׁמֶן וּקְטֹרֶת כְּאֶחָד. בֹּא רְאֵה, שְׁלָמִים הוּא שָׁלוֹם בַּכֹּל, וּקְטָטָה וְקִטְרוּג לֹא מִתְעוֹרְרִים בָּעוֹלָם. אֲבָל קְטֹרֶת קוֹשֶׁרֶת אֶת קֶשֶׁר הָאֱמוּנָה.
166. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר אָמַר, כָּל עֲשֶׂרֶת הַשֵּׁמוֹת כְּתוּבִים, וְאָנוּ שָׁנִינוּ, שֶׁהָרִאשׁוֹן אֶהְיֶה, זֶה הַנִּסְתָּר הָעֶלְיוֹן, כְּמִי שֶׁאוֹמֵר: אֲנִי מִי שֶׁאֲנִי! וְלֹא נוֹדָע מִי הוּא. אַחַר כָּךְ אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, אֲנִי שֶׁעָתִיד לְהִתְגַּלּוֹת בְּאוֹתָם הַכְּתָרִים (הָאֲחֵרִים), שֶׁהֲרֵי בָּרִאשׁוֹנָה נִסְתָּר, וְאַחַר כָּךְ מַתְחִיל לְהִתְגַּלּוֹת, עַד שֶׁמַּגִּיעַ לַגִּלּוּי שֶׁל הַשֵּׁם(שֶׁל שְּׁלֵמוּת)הַקָּדוֹשׁ.


Zohar Vayikra
Continued from previous DZ
The offering that is above all is the incense (Ketoret), which is entirely perfect and does not come for sin, guilt, or iniquity but for joy. As it is said,
Proverbs 27:9
“שֶׁמֶן וּקְטֹרֶת יְשַׂמַּח לֵב וּמֶתֶק רֵעֵהוּ מֵעֲצַת נָפֶשׁ.”
“Ointment and perfume (Ketoret) delight the heart, And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel.”
We have already established that the incense is offered only when oil is brought, as it says;
Exodus 30:7
“וְהִקְטִיר עָלָיו אַהֲרֹן קְטֹרֶת סַמִּים בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר בְּהֵיטִיבוֹ אֶת הַנֵּרֹת יַקְטִירֶנָּה.”
“Aaron shall burn on the incense every morning; when he tends the lamps (of the Menorah), he shall burn incense on it.”
This is so that oil and incense are found together. Oil is the aspect of Chokmah, and incense is the aspect of Binah. Chokmah and Binah are always together. Peace offerings make peace in everything and stop discord and prosecution from being awakened in the world. But the Ketoret ties the bond of faith, drawing Mochin to Malchut that is called faith (אֱמוּנָה Emuna).

Rabbi Elazar said, all ten names are written in the Torah, and we have learned that the first name is אהיה AHYH, which is the supreme concealed one, as if saying “אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה” “I Am Who I Am,” (Exodus 3:14) and it is not known who He is. It is Keter. And then it is written, ‘Asher Ehyeh (I Will Be),’ which is Chokhmah, meaning ‘I will be revealed in these other crowns,’ for initially, it is concealed, that is, in Keter, and then begins to be revealed, that is, in Chokmah and Binah, until it reaches the revelation of the Holy Name, in Tiferet.

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.
