This Tuesday! Parahsat Haman – For sustenance and blessings
On Tuesday, just before Shabbat Beshalach; we have a special reading called Parashat Haman 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 us with 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 has the numerical value of 72 יוד-הי-ויו-הי relates to the world of Emanation, Atzilut.
The Torah describes the story of the gift of Manna that God brought down from heaven to feed the Israelites in the wilderness. Through the Torah, we connect back in time to that energy revelation to benefit us here and now.
Manna = מן is numerically 90 + 1 (for the word) = 91
The Manna comes from heaven through the nine sefirot of Light (9×10=90) to Malchut. It manifests in Malchut and receives 1 to complete the connection of upper יהוה YHVH and lower אדני ADNY, the two names that numerically equal 91.
It is important to give tzedakah and tithe, especially during this week, to open the channel of Yessod for this Light. If you are one of the few that regularly give tzedakah and full tithe then your vessel is already prepared for this Light.
The Torah tells us that when the Israelites picked Manna more than they needed, meaning expressing the desire for the self, the pure Manna turned bad. The consciousness should be of having a continuous flow of sustenance for the family and all of those who depend on us, including employees and their families.
There is a sample of the Manna from that time still in existence, and we will see it when the new Holy Temple is revealed, B”H soon (Exodus 16:32-35). That means that the connection to the energy of the Manna is exceptionally strong.
The Kiddush of the third meal of Shabbat uses two verses from Beshalach (Exodus 16:29,30) referring to the Manna. It supports us in carrying the energy of Shabbat to the rest of the week.
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.
