On Tuesday, just before the Shabbat we read the portion of Beshalach, we have a special reading called Parashat Ha’man that has a significant connection to sustenance.
The Manna first came down to the people on the 16th day of the month of Iyar and it’s important to connect to this reading on Rosh Chodesh Iyar and on the 16th day of Iyar.
The ‘Parashat Haman’ is from the Torah portion of Beshalach and it tells the story of the Manna that God brought down from the heavens to feed the Israelites in the wilderness. The Manna had spiritual qualities and it satisfied every person’s taste. The Israelites received the Manna every day until they reached the borders of the promised land.
In the same portion, we find the source of the 72 names and the splitting of the Read Sea. The 72 names provide for us spiritual bridges from Malchut, the world of action, to the upper levels where spiritual and material sustenance are bestowed on us.
The spelled name of YHVH that has the numerical value of 72 יוד-הי-ויו-הי relates to the world of Emanation, Atzilut.
On Shabbat Beshalach we connect to the power that controls the corporeal/material world.
Using this special reading that some read every day after their morning prayers, makes a powerful connection to draw sustenance into our lives.
