Parashat Ha’man – פרשת המן

On Tuesday, just before the Shabbat of Beshalach we have a special prayer called Parashat Ha’man that has significant power.

The ‘Parashat Ha’man’ is from the Torah portion of Beshalach and it tells the story of the Manna that God brought down from 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 everyday 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 emanationת Atzilut. It is a special and powerful Shabbat that we connect to the power that controls physicality.

Using this special reading that some read everyday after their morning prayers, makes a powerful connection for sustenance.

    Dear Zion,

    Thanks again for all the wonderful work that you do. I have a few questions:

    1. I understand that we need to read the Hebrew part two times and Aramaic part once. Correct?

    2. Could you please remind me the significance of the 6th of Shevat (today) when it is particularly recommended to read this portion?

    Hazak ve Baruch,
    Alex Shapiro

    • 1. Yes as it is done in the video. In other days of the year we read once, just the Hebrew.
      2. It’s the Tuesday before Shabbat Beshalach. It’s not about the Hebrew date.
      I explained in the explanation above that on Tuesday we start building the vessel for the light of following Shabbat.

  • Lea

    Rav Menachem Mendel of Riminov says that whoever read Parashat HaMan / Sustenance Portion -- shnayim mikrah v’echad targum / twice in Hebrew and once in Aramaic -- during Tuesday of Parashat Beshalach (no matter the day of the month), wont lack sustenance.
    Kabbalists say that Tuesday is connected to Yaakov Avinu, the central column.

  • Doris

    Wow Lea, thank you, I will do it I need resources and work
    thank you again to Ha Shem for all of you

  • Lea

    There is an advice at the top of Parashat HaMan saying that one can read Parashat HaMan all seven days of the week but paying attention not to pray for sustenance itself only on SHABAT, which are the prayers:
    in the beginning -- second paragraph
    in the end -- the last two paragraphs.

    hola me gustaria leer la parashat a man,no leo hebreo,donde la puedo encontrar en castellano gracias

  • Parashat Haman in the parasha of Beshalach in the Torah. The Zohar study it in Zohar Beshalach, paragraphs #364-#420.
    The sages suggest to us to read this part of the Torah everyday to connect to the ultimate source of sustenance, which is the Manna that came down from heaven.
    Beginning Tuesday before Shabbat Beshalach, the light of that shabbat appears. We read it as the Holy Ari suggests (twice each verse then once the translation to Aramaic). It gives us the highest connection to the light revealed through the reading of Parashat Haman.
    During the rest of the year we can read the verses only once.
    I DO NOT SUGGEST USING IT AS A MAGIC FORMULA OR ‘HOKUS POKUS’ THING. A person who wants to benefit from it should be with the proper sharing consciousness.
    I have the recording for streaming here:

Hebrew clock is temporary out. We will update, add more features.

We use an external service that provide us with user’s city and local time. Having the clock on the main page means costly requests to that service. 

The clock will be moved to a separate page, displaying it on demand.
