It is now after Midnight (Friday morning). We just finished with the fast of Yom Kippur and we are just before Shabbat. I didn\’t have article ready for the parasha of Haazinu. (Last year I was in Israel and didn\’t have time to write on it).This year I decided to fight the desire to go to sleep and write to you this short and important commentary. I will not have time to edit it so there is a risk of not being clear or sending in with English errors. (In fact I am writing directly into the email system, not even a proper word processor that will help me with grammar or spelling). Enough with excuses.
I want to share with you just few points. The parasha considered as the song of Moses. It is written in the Torah in very unique way and the style is also different. The whole songs in written on two special columns, which are split into two each to become 4 columns of text.
Before the song starts we have 6 regular lines of Torah text, then 35 lines split to two columns then on the next Torah Column we have the reverse image. 35 lines split to two then 6 regular lines.
I believe that a mathematician will find a lot of secrets just from this unique arrangement of the parasha. Kabbalah Sees it as the upper and lower triangles that form the shield of David. 70 + 70 lines of the song or 35 times 4.
This arrangement also looks like two doors, one opens toward heavens and one door open toward earth
At the top of the column, which we discussed last week, we have the letter Aleph that gave birth to Moses and he keeps it as a key to move between the worlds through the doors that Moses actually created for us.
The letter Aleph is described in Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) as a Mother letter, together with Mem and Shin.
In the parasha we find a very unique word in the Hebrew language, it has only one letter, the letter/word \’He\’. It appears as large letter, which means that it connects to the level of Binah. The reader of the Torah should read it as a separate word and not connect it to the next word as normally read.
This letter appears twice in the Tetragramaton, one time for Binah and on time for Malchut. Here it tells us how Moses connected upper and lower, like at the beginning of the songs with calling upon heaven and earth to listen to his song and by that he created necessary gates for us and for himself. As I explained in previous commentaries, he will come back. He has the key and the gates.
Last point I want to share with you is that in the Zohar portion of Haazinu, we find a special section called "Idra Zuta" (translated to "Smaller Assembly"). In this part Rabbi Shimon reveals the secrets of Zeir Anpin (six sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod and Yesod). Also here Rabbi Shimon is leaving the world and its departure described in details in the Idra Zuta.
I won\’t go into this details but I will try to answer why the Idra Zuta placed inside Zohar Haazinu?
The Ari, tells us that Rabbi Shimon had a spark on the soul of Moses. He came to the world to reveal the Zohar, in order to support the Shechina at the days before revelation of Mashiach and to give us a powerful tool of connection and protection.
The Zohar and Rabbi Shimon directing us to the gates that lead to Zeir Anpin, the "Light".
When the Torah is raised this Shabbat and you look at it, Stare at the Gates that Moses created for us and ask him to come back.
He was the first redeemer and he will be the last redeemer.
We want to see him now "Ki Ba Moed" (because time has come).
