193. רַבִּי אָחָא אָמַר, כָּתוּב (ויקרא ז) אִם עַל תּוֹדָה יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ וְהִקְרִיב עַל זֶבַח הַתּוֹדָה וְגוֹ’. מַה זֶּה אוֹמֵר? כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר, (שם ה) וְהִתְוַדָּה אֲשֶׁר חָטָא עָלֶיהָ. עָלֶיהָ דַּוְקָא. וְעַל זֶה חַלּוֹת מַצּוֹת וְגוֹ’. וְחַלּוֹת מַצּוֹת, הֲרֵי פֵּרְשׁוּהָ, וְעַל מַה בָּאָה? מַצֹּת וְחַלֹּת כָּתוּב חָסֵר, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁחָטָא עָלֶיהָ.
194. שָׁנָה רַבִּי חִיָּיא, כָּתוּב עַל זֶבַח תּוֹדַת שְׁלָמָיו, זוֹ שְׁלֵמוּת הַכֹּל. שְׁלָמָיו – שְׁנַיִם. תּוֹדָה, נוֹדָע. אָמַר לוֹ רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, תּוֹדָה יָדוּעַ. שְׁלָמָיו לָמָּה זֶה שְׁנַיִם? אָמַר לוֹ, שְׁנֵי וָוִי”ם, וָ”ו שֶׁהַיְנוּ שְׁלָמָיו, הַשָּׁלוֹם שֶׁל הַכֹּל.
195. אָמַר רַבִּי יִצְחָק, תּוֹדַת שְׁלָמָיו, שֶׁמַּטִּיל שָׁלוֹם בַּכֹּל, וּמִתְעוֹרְרִים רַחֲמִים בְּכָל הָעוֹלָמוֹת. תּוֹדַת שְׁלָמָיו, אָמַר רַבִּי יוֹסֵי, מַה שֶּׁאָמַר רַבִּי חִיָּיא – יָפֶה, שֶׁכְּנֶסֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל מִתְבָּרֶכֶת מֵאוֹתָם שְׁנַיִם, שֶׁהֵם הַשָּׁלוֹם שֶׁל הַכֹּל. רַבִּי יוֹסֵי אָמַר, לֶחֶם חָמֵץ הֲרֵי יָדוּעַ, וַהֲרֵי נִתְבָּאֵר, כְּמוֹ שֶׁהָיָה חֵטְא, כָּךְ הָיָה מַקְרִיב בְּאוֹתוֹ גָוֶן מַמָּשׁ.


Zohar Vayikra
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Acha said, “It is written, ‘אִם עַל תּוֹדָה יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ וְהִקְרִיב עַל זֶבַח הַתּוֹדָה’ ‘If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving’ (Leviticus 7:12). He asks, ‘What is being said, and why is there a need to offer unleavened cakes etc., with it?’ And he answers, it is like the case of ‘וְהִתְוַדָּה אֲשֶׁר חָטָא עָלֶיהָ’ ‘and confesses the sin he has committed,’ that is, for he sinned and blemished the Malchut. The thanksgiving offering comes for being saved from suffering because there are no sufferings without sin. This sin blemishes only the Malchut, as in the guilt offering, where one must bring unleavened cakes, etc. The unleavened cakes are aspects of Malchut, and they come to correct the blemish caused to Malchut. ‘מַצֹּת וְחַלֹּת’ ‘Matzot and Challot’ are written missing a ‘Vav.’ That is because the sin on Malchut causes the ‘Vav,’ which is Tiferet, Zeir Anpin, not to shine on Malchut.

Rabbi Chiya taught, it is written,
Leviticus 7:15
“וּבְשַׂר זֶבַח תּוֹדַת שְׁלָמָיו בְּיוֹם קָרְבָּנוֹ יֵאָכֵל לֹא יַנִּיחַ מִמֶּנּוּ עַד בֹּקֶר.”
“The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day it is offered. He shall not leave any of it until morning.”
“His peace offerings” is the completion of everything. That means two. Rabbi Yehuda said, “Thanksgiving offering is known, that it is Malchut, but what are the two you are saying about peace offerings?” He told him that they are two ‘vavs’ (‘וו’), which are Tiferet and Yessod, “his peace offerings,” indicating the peace of everything.

The ‘peace offerings’ ‘שְׁלָמָיו’ is plural, implying two Vavs, one for Zeir Anpin and one for Malchut, to indicate peace and completion.

Rabbi Yitzhak said the thanksgiving of his peace offerings means that it brings peace and arouses mercy in all the worlds. The thanksgiving of his peace offerings, Rabbi Yosi says, what Rabbi Chiya said is good, that the Congregation of Israel, which is Malchut, is blessed from these two, which are Tiferet and Yessod, and they are the peace of everything. Rabbi Yosi says that leavened bread is known to indicate the grip of external forces, “חצונים” (Other-side), and we learn, just as the sin gave a grip to the external forces through his sin, so his offering is in the very same manner. Therefore, he brings leavened bread.

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.
