וַיַּרְא, פִּינְחָס בֶּן-אֶלְעָזָר, בֶּן-אַהֲרֹן, הַכֹּהֵן; וַיָּקָם מִתּוֹךְ הָעֵדָה, וַיִּקַּח רֹמַח בְּיָדוֹ

The cause: (numbers 25:1)
וַיֵּשֶׁב יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּשִּׁטִּים; וַיָּחֶל הָעָם, לִזְנוֹת אֶל-בְּנוֹת מוֹאָב.

And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit harlotry with the daughters of Moab .

(numbers 25:3) וַיִּצָּמֶד יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְבַעַל פְּעוֹר

And Israel joined himself unto the Baal of Peor;

The effect: (numbers 25:3)
; וַיִּחַר-אַף יְהוָה, בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל. and the anger of the G-d was kindled against Israel

We see that the effect came immediately and in the same verse (25:3). We learn from that that there is always an effect that follows a cause.

G-d in (numbers 25:4) instructed Moshe on how to remedy the situation. Moshe follows the instruction and tell his judges to kill all the people that have joined with the "Baal Peor", the negativity. As I explained in commentary to Balak, the cause of negativity was that the sexual connection is at the level of the Sefirah of Yesod. It is the channel of the Light to this world. This negative join drained the Light of the Yisraelite toward the Malchut of the other side.

That caused a plague. G-d did not create the plague. The people\’s action did. G-d and Moshe wanted to stop that.

Pinchas was a high soul and he saw the point where the Light was going toward the negative side. He saw what is going on in the spiritual levels, he saw the people dying because the Light was going away. He saw the spiritual body of the Israelite weakened through the channel of Yesod. He took a spear " רמח " and thrust both of them in the place where their body joined together.

" רמח ", numerical value of 248. This is the number of parts in the body. Rearranging the letters, gives us the Hebrew word for womb " רחם ", where the human body initially forms. And also has the meaning of mercy,

The sixth sefirah of Yesod is the last one of the six sefirot of Zeir Anpin, represented by the letter " ו ".

Pinchas stopped the negativity at the source by killing the leaders of the act with the right tool. He did not go to kill "bad people"; he repaired the corrupted channel, Yesod, of the Israelites and restored the light to their body (spiritual).

When looking at the Torah in Parshat Pinchas, we see that there is a small letter Yod in the name of Pinchas. The sages explain that the regular letters of the Torah are at the level of Zeir Anpin, The large letters connects to the level of Binah and the small letters connects to Malchut of Zeir Anpin.

The small Yod of Pinchas shows his connection to the ten sefirot of Light in Malchut.

Later we see a broken Vav at the word Shalom " שָׁלוֹם " (Numbers 25:12). Normally a broken letter in the Torah disqualify the Torah from use. In this case the letter has a gap that channels the Light that Pinchas reveal with his act.

The letters in the Torah are vessels, the carrier of light. Each letter is a defined light. The spaces in the Torah represent unrestricted Light. (That is why you can not touch the Torah with bare hands). The spaces reveal greater Light than the letters.

When a person goes up to the Torah he looks at the letters and read. There must be Eye Mouth Ear connection to draw and channel the light to the congregation. Even if a reader knows the Torah flawlessly by heart, he can not stand by the Torah and recite the verses without looking at the letters. The person that makes the Torah blessing must connect with his eyes to every word read in the Torah.

The letter Vav appears in the word Shalom " שָׁלוֹם ". The root of the word is " שלם ", which means completeness. Pinchas repaired the broken body of the Isrealite. He made it whole again.

There is also a new paragraph starts after the words " וַיְהִי, אַחֲרֵי הַמַּגֵּפָה " "and after the plague" ( Numbers 26:1 ). This space comes in the middle of the verse.

A new beginning took place after the plague. That space reveals a lot of Light.

G-d explains Pinchas action as " פִּינְחָס בֶּן-אֶלְעָזָר בֶּן-אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, הֵשִׁיב אֶת-חֲמָתִי מֵעַל בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּקַנְאוֹ אֶת-קִנְאָתִי, בְּתוֹכָם; וְלֹא-כִלִּיתִי אֶת-בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּקִנְאָתִי "

" \’ Pinchas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned My wrath away from the children of Israel, in that he was very jealous for My sake among them, so that I consumed not the children of Israel in My jealousy ".

The English translation is for the story, not for the hidden Torah code. "Turned the wrath away", means that he stop the effect of their negative actions. " בְּקַנְאוֹ " is built from " ב " in " קַנְא " and " ו ". " קַנְא " has the numerical value of 151 = " מקוה ", cleansing and Vav. Simply to tells us that Pinchas purified the letter Vav, the channel.

G-d rewarded him with eternal priesthood. We know that Pinchas became Eliyahu Hanavie, Elijah the prophet, and he never died. He is always present (when invited) in the ceremony of "Brit" (circumcision) to help the new child remove the negativity and connect to the Light. It is called entering to the covenant of Avraham (numerical value = 248!).

Pinchas brought new life to the people of Yisrael. The Parasha mentions all the tribes, holidays and sacrifices. The light of this parasha is so strong that we read parts of it on a daily basis (more than once). Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, and all major holidays.

The Zohar goes in length to describe the human body parts and the spiritual connection of each part.

The Kohen duty is to channel the Light to the people and heal them. Pinchas did the ultimate and gave us through this parasha Light to use everyday.

He will be the one, as Elijah, to announce the ultimate peace " מבשר שָׁלוֹם " with the coming of Mashiach, Today, Amen.

In order to understand this article deeply, please read last year’s article http://rabbishimon.com/index.cfm/feature/23_4 . (Its not old stuff or a daily news article, it is good until Mashiach is here.) and the commentary for Balak http://rabbishimon.com/index.cfm/feature/147_4

The background story is that Balak and Balaam tried to destroy the nation of Israel. They wanted to separate the Israelites from the light of the creator using the spiritual method of curses.
They couldn’t achieve that so they decided to drain their energy by seducing them to have sex with Midianite women. They succeeded and the Light was going away from the nation. Darkness invaded and the effect was a deadly plague.
Pinchas realized the real cause of the plague and jumped to correct the situation.

He didn’t think of himself or consulted his father, the high priest or Moses for advice. He grew up to follow the great line of his family. His father, the high priest, his grandfather, Aharon, the man of peace and his two uncles, Nadav and Avihu, who sacrificed their lives to bring final redemption before time and allow us a higher connection to the Light of the Creator.

His level of dedication to protect the people elevated him closer to the endless light.
When the negative action was happening, Pinchas saw the drainage of light going from the good side of the tree to the bad side of it.

All his essence was “I am not important”; “I am here to draw the light to the people and remove negativity from the world”.
He had the Tree of Life consciousness, selflessness and unconditional love. Pinchas didn’t have a consciousness of killing the people that caused the negativity; he just did whatever was needed to stop it.

By drawing the highest light of the endless to stop the negativity, he had to die and because he revealed the light of the endless, he couldn’t die.

Following is an explanation to this “paradoxical” situation.
We know that when a righteous person dies, all the light that was generated from his positive actions during his life remains in this world.

Pinchas tapped into the light of the Tree of Life with his action. It could’ve brought the final redemption and the final peace, before we could really earn it. Therefore, Pinchas died and at the same time got reincarnated with the two souls of his uncles, Nadav and Avihu, who both acted selflessly in order to bring the final redemption.
Pinchas, didn’t think through or had any personal agenda. He knew one thing, he was not important. He was there to make the connection and draw the light for others.
He did what was needed to be done. He stopped negativity that could’ve destroyed the whole world.

Remember, God created the world for us to make. If we lose the balance and negativity takes over the light, a total destruction will happen.

God testifies to the great act that Pinchas did. (Numbers 25:11) “הֵשִׁיב אֶת-חֲמָתִי מֵעַל בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל”, has turned my wrath away from the children of Israel.

The law of attraction is implemented here automatically. Pinchas behaved like the Creator and created affinity with the light at the highest level, the endless light.
God was so happy to be “stopped” and rewarded Pinchas with eternal priesthood and appointed him to be the “keeper of the covenant”. The “ברית”, covenant, is the first revelation and connection of God and Abraham.  “Peace”, "שלום", is referred in this case to the Final redemption and final peace.
The Zohar discusses a conversation between God and Moses about giving Pinchas the control over Malchut. As we know there is a small letter Yod “י” added to Pinchas’s name (Numbers 25:11). This letter represents Malchut. Here is the discussion that is translated from Zohar;
“…At that time God thought what should I do with Moses. The covenant came from Moses and the bride, which is Malchut, belongs to him. It is not nice to give her, the Malchut, to another, without the knowledge and will of Moshe. It is not proper.
The Holy one Blessed be He, started saying to Moses, Moses, “Pinchas, the son of Elazar, the son of Aharon the priest”. Moses replied, Master of the Universe, what is it? The Holy One told him, you are the one that gave his soul for the Israelites several times, so they should not be gone from this world. And Pinchas returned my wrath away from the children of Israel…and Moses answered, “What do you want from me? Everything is yours and if you want to give him control over Malchut, who would tell you what to do?”
The conversation continues and I just wanted to bring up two points here. One is that God had to give Pinchas control over Malchut. Second is Moses’s reaction. He could already move between worlds, see God and People, but he still thought to himself, “I am not important!” what do you want from me, God? Do whatever you want.

Bottom line, Pinchas has it all. He never died; he is Elijah, the prophet. He has the ability to move between worlds, like Moses. Elijah appears (when asked) in every “Brit” (circumcision ceremony), to protect the connection between the people and covenant.  Elijah will announce the coming of Mashiach and the final redemption.
When Rabbi Shimon and his son were hiding in the cave and study Kabbalah, they had two visitors only, Moses and Elijah. The two most “unimportant” people in human history.

” טוֹב-עַיִן, הוּא יְבֹרָךְ: כִּי-נָתַן מִלַּחְמוֹ לַדָּל ” (Proverbs 23:9)

The Ari Hakadosh reveals us that Moses’s root soul came from the good side of ” הבל ” (Abel, the son of Adam) , which is the letter ” ה ” and Balaam came from the bad side, which is the letters ” בל “. They were both connected to the sefira of “דעת “, Moshe was connected to the side of holiness and Balaam to the negativity and impurity. They were both prophets.

Balak was a grand magician with deeper understanding and knowledge of the spiritual system. He knew what needed to be done in order to eliminate the growth of the Israelites and the threat to his position.

He knew that Balaam was at the same level of Moses from the negative side and that he could be the only one that can separate the connection of Moses and the Israelites to the Light from their root. That is by using the power of words. Not well equipped armies and no sophisticated weapons of mass destructions. Few well selected words by the right person could do the job.

The words come out of the mouth as “הבל “, “vapor” of the mouth. The Ari explains that Balaam, with his words and consciousness, wanted to connect Moses and himself together again (as they were in Abel) and let the evil side (Balaam) overcome the good (Moses).

Another connection to the name is in Numbers 23:20 ” הִנֵּה בָרֵךְ, לָקָחְתִּי; וּבֵרֵךְ, וְלֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנָּה “, the first letters of the first three words are spelled “הבל “, the Ari explains that this is where he wanted to take the good from Moses.

Bringing negativity on Moses would have caused him a disconnection from his higher root of the level of Daat “דעת “. This sefira is actually the result of the connection of Chokmah and Binah ( Aba and Ima or Supernal Father and Mother). As a connection to the Light for the whole nation of Yisrael, Balaam and Balak knew that if they were successful, it would be like a spiritual beheading for the Israelites.

Moses was already protected and Balaam was instructed by G-d to leave him and the nation alone. Balak did not let Balaam walk away. They continued with the plan and after the last attempt (Numbers 24:1-4); Balaam tried to ‘trick’ G-d by changing the method of his curse

” וְלֹא-הָלַךְ כְּפַעַם-בְּפַעַם, לִקְרַאת נְחָשִׁים; וַיָּשֶׁת אֶל-הַמִּדְבָּר, פָּנָיו “

“He went, not like the other times, to meet with enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness”

Then in Numbers 24:3
” וַיִּשָּׂא מְשָׁלוֹ, וַיֹּאמַר: נְאֻם בִּלְעָם בְּנוֹ בְעֹר, וּנְאֻם הַגֶּבֶר שְׁתֻם הָעָיִן ”
” And he took up his parable, and said: The saying of Balaam the son of Beor, and the saying of the man whose eye is opened”

In the Hebrew verse we see that there are four words that are missing the letter Vav “ו “. This letter represents the six Sefirot of Zeir Anpin. That was Balaam’s preparation to cut the Light from the Israelites.

A miracle happened and G-d turned the curse into six words blessing.

“מַה-טֹּבוּ אֹהָלֶיךָ, יַעֲקֹב; מִשְׁכְּנֹתֶיךָ, יִשְׂרָאֵל “
” How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwellings, O Israel!”

Those six words give us the power of protection. The sum of the first letter of each word adds up to 110 and that is equal to “נס “, “Miracle”. Also small Gimatria 11, which has the power of overcoming negativity.

Many use this blessing when they enter the synagogue to make a spiritual connection.

The word “מַה” (=45) itself represents the name of G-d at the level of Zeir Anpin, the letter “ו “of the Holy name.

The first word ” מַה “, in this parasha appears at the top of the column of the Torah scroll. The Torah is written on 248 columns of 42 rows each. Every column starts with the letter ” ו “, except for six places, beginning with the first letter and word of the Torah ” ב ” of ” בְּרֵאשִׁית “. The six letters are ” ביה־שמו”numerical value 363 ” המשיח ” = The Mashiach. Also same value as ” משה־חי “, Moses is alive.

Realizing his failure to disconnect the Light from the Top, Balaam suggested Balak that if they cannot stop the light from coming, they can try to drain it out using a connection to the Sixth Sefira of Yesod (the sex organs).

Balak sent beautiful women with magical powers to lure the leaders to connect with them.

The Torah (Numbers 25:1) tells us what happened ” וַיֵּשֶׁב יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּשִּׁטִּים; וַיָּחֶל הָעָם, לִזְנוֹת אֶל-בְּנוֹת מוֹאָב “

The word ” לִזְנוֹת ” describes the spiritual process. The letter Lamed “ל ” connects to the upper three sefirot, it is built from ” ו ” and ” כ ” (together 26), the next two letters are ” זנ ” and it means “to feed” ” ו ” is the channel for Zeir Anpin and the sixth sefira of Yesod, ” ת ” is the last letter of the Alef-Bet, for Malchut. It this case the Malchut of the negative side.

” וַיִּצָּמֶד יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְבַעַל פְּעוֹר; וַיִּחַר-אַף יְהוָה, בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל “

The light of the nation started flowing toward the negativity and the effect was a plague and 24000 people died before they were saved by Pinchas.

The Light force comes from “above”, by the merit of our leaders and spiritual connections. Our actions determine if we can hold and use this light or lose it to negativity.

By the merit of Moses spiritual strength the Israelites were protected from the top and were saved from total destruction.

They lost on the individual level, when they acted negatively.

It is important for us to connect to a righteous person to share his merit and protection of the Light, but we are always responsible for our personal actions.

 

 

A strange question but in this parasha we have a unique situation. Somewhere in the middle of the parasha we have two verses between two unique letters.
We have large, regular and small letters in the Torah. We have the broken letter Vav in parashat Pinchas but the two nuns “ nun180“turned 180 degrees with head down…

nun180וַיְהִי בִּנְסֹעַ הָאָרֹן, וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה: קוּמָה יְהוָה, וְיָפֻצוּ אֹיְבֶיךָ, וְיָנֻסוּ מְשַׂנְאֶיךָ, מִפָּנֶיךָ. (לו) וּבְנֻחֹה, יֹאמַר: שׁוּבָה יְהוָה, רִבְבוֹת אַלְפֵי יִשְׂרָאֵלnun180

The Midrash discussed this issue and it is accepted by many that the two verses turns the Books of Numbers into three books and the Torah to have seven books.

In (Masechet Shabbat 116), Rabbi Shimon ben Gamliel says: “In the future this section will be moved from it current location and written in its proper place.”

When divided to five books then

Genesis = Keter,
Exodus=Chokmah,
Leviticus=Binah,
Numbers=Zeir Anpin
and Deuteronomy=Malchut.
When divided into seven then the Torah becomes:
Genesis = Chessed,
Exodus=Gevurah,
Leviticus=Tiferet,
Numbers first part =Netzach,
Two verses= Hod,
Numbers last part=Yesod
and Deturonomy=Malchut.

The Two verses are in the level of Hod. We know that Hod is the level that completes the vessel and have the ability to draw and channel the Light

Up to the first letter, “nun180” the Torah describes the building the spiritual system for us and teach us how to connect to the light. In Behalotcha, the third parasha of Numbers is related to the Kohen.

The book of Numbers starts with the parasha of Bamidbar and it deals and connects with Yisraelites or Yisrael, Naso count and deals with the Levites, Behalotcha connect the Kohen with the Menorah and the seven candles. Together they are making the vessel “כלי” for “כהן־לוי־ישראל” (read my commentary on Naso).
The Kohen connects to the Menorah, which is the plug in tool to draw the light of the supernal through the seven sefirot to our world.

This is all up to the first Nun, “” and the following two verses activated the system. The Torah (Zeir Anpin) is now in full force and the Light can flow to the world. It gives us the power to manifest desires into physicality.

The Torah is our GPS (G-d P-rovided S-ystem). In the desert, the cloud and the pillar of fire guided the Yisraelites in their travels to the Promised Land.
All we need is to follow the system.

What makes these two verses so special?
Before them the Torah was five parts (hand of G-d) and now seven parts, Zeir Anpin (six Sefirot) and Malchut (1).
Remember that Z”A is the letter “ו” of the Holy name. The physical Torah is rolled like the shape of the letter Vav.

Because the Torah is a tool for us to use in this world it needed the transformation from five to seven. The Kohen uses the Menorah with the seven candles to draw this light. It had to happen in the same parasha.

Before we take the Torah out of the Arc we recite these two verses, in order to activate the Torah as Zeir Anpin. The Arc itself is the vessel and Light of Chokmah and Binah, the Torah is Zeir Anpin and the “תיבה” Teivah, also means word in Hebrew and it is where we place the Torah for reading, the Malchut.

We need seven men to “come up”, have an “Aliya”, “עליה”, to activate the different levels and draw the Light. It is all a spiritual technology that G-d gave us to choose to connect.

Some reforms allow woman to go up to the Torah. It may look nice and advanced but it is not the technology.
Woman is Malchut and she can not channel the Light. She is the vessel, the desire and the reason for the Light to come in. That is why a Jew is someone that was born to a Jewish mother. The light goes to the vessel.
The work is for the man and that is why men need to pray/connect everyday. Women’s main spiritual work is the connection to the Shabbat, which is the seventh day, Malchut.

The first verse “ויהי־בנסע”, connect to movement, Z”A, Male, connect and draw to the Light. The second is “ובנחה־יאמר”, connect to rest, Female, manifesting the Light.
Baal Haturim in his commentary to this parasha, reveals that “בנסע” in gimatria calculation of “אט-בח” is equal to “חשמל” (electricity).
If you understand a little bit about electricity you realize that the first verse is connect to the Positive (+) and the second is to the Ground (-).

The letter “נ” that usually represent falling “נפילה” (King David used “סומך־נופלים” in the Psalms of “Ashrei”, which is in order of the Alef-Bet to support the letter “נ”). Here it is turned 180 degrees to be a tool of elevation. It is no longer a regular “נ” of falling, but a one of elevation.

“נ” has value of 50 to connect us to Binah and the two letters has value of 100 and it is the same value of “כלים” and abbreviation for “כהן־לוי־ישראל־מלכות”.
The final letter “ם” has a big connection to the final redemption and it represents a complete vessel.

The two verses, which appears as a separate paragraph in the Torah has 19 words. 12 in the first verse and 7 in the second. To add to the significance of these two verses, my friend, Ezra (Jeff) Meiliken, the mathematician, told me that the 1st verse of the Torah has 7 words and the last 12 words.

This implies a complete system. The complete cycle of Hebrew calendar has 19 years. 12 regular and 7 leap years. 12 for the 12 months and 7 for the seven planets and letters “בגדכפרת”, which according to the book of formation “ספר־יצירה”, controls the seven planets that drive the Zodiac.

There are altogether 85 letters = “פה” = mouth, which is the manifestation tool. The power of the mouth and prayer appears in this parasha as it is the first time we find in (Numbers 11:2) “וַיִּתְפַּלֵּל מֹשֶׁה” (“and Moshe Prayed”).
Immediately after the two verses we read (Numbers 11:1)

“וַיְהִי הָעָם כְּמִתְאֹנְנִים, רַע בְּאָזְנֵי יְהוָה; וַיִּשְׁמַע יְהוָה, וַיִּחַר אַפּוֹ, וַתִּבְעַר-בָּם אֵשׁ יְהוָה, וַתֹּאכַל בִּקְצֵה הַמַּחֲנֶה.”

“1 And the people were as murmurers, speaking evil in the ears of the G-d; and when G-d heard it, His anger was kindled; and the fire of G-d burnt among them, and devoured in the uttermost part of the camp” The negative part of the mouth came through the mouth of the people and they spoke “evil” “רַע” , Rabbi Ashlag of blessed memory explains that “רַע” is abbreviation for “רצון־עצמי” , “Selfish desire” and “רשע” (Evil) is for “רצון־של־עצמו” , “Desire for one self”.
The nation felt the energy of expressing themselves but they made a mistake and used this power for selfish desires. That was in opposite to the way of the Light and fire came to burn and removes this negativity.

The people screamed to Moshe, he prayed for them and the fire abated. He knew how to use the words to control physicality.

The nation later continued complaining that they do not have meat to eat. In short, Moshe that was in a state of above the physical levels couldn’t connect to the people’s desire. If he would do that, it would have been like death for him. He was connected to the tree of life. He brought the Torah to the people.

The midrash says that Moshe was not able to connect to his wife because of that reason. He was too high above (and that is why he never died.).

G-d instruct him to assemble 70 people and G-d used part of Moshe’s divine spirit to bestow on the 70 elder people so they can do Moshe’s work without bringing Moshe down from his level.

That created the power of prophesy among the elders and they were able to speak prophesies on that day of initiation.

The people could now get what they want (the meat) but they had a strong desire that drew again negative energy and the Light had to remove that negativity and many people died because of that.

Moshe did not or could not interfere because the elders had the duty of taking care of the people.

In verse 12:1, Miriam and Aharon talked about a beautiful woman that Moshe took. As a result of their talks, G-d appeared immediately and took them to the Tabernacle. G-d talked about the ways he connects to his prophets and when the cloud moved away, they saw Miriam leprous.

Miriam and Aharon were in a very high level. They merited the great miracles of the well of Miriam and the Clouds of Honor for Aharon.
They knew that this is the best time to use Moshe to draw the light of healing and they did. G-d’s words to them were about his choice to reveal himself to the right person.

They forced Moshe to see the energy of healing available on that time. G-d was upset about that and a result Miriam became leprous. Aharaon jumped first to talk (Numbers 12:11)

“וַיֹּאמֶר אַהֲרֹן, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה: בִּי אֲדֹנִי–אַל-נָא תָשֵׁת עָלֵינוּ חַטָּאת, אֲשֶׁר נוֹאַלְנוּ וַאֲשֶׁר חָטָאנוּ. יב אַל-נָא תְהִי, כַּמֵּת, אֲשֶׁר בְּצֵאתוֹ מֵרֶחֶם אִמּוֹ, וַיֵּאָכֵל חֲצִי בְשָׂרוֹ. יג וַיִּצְעַק מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-יְהוָה לֵאמֹר: אֵל, נָא רְפָא נָא לָהּ”

See how Aharon use the word “אל־נא” twice to make Moshe make his prayer using 5 words with total of 11 letters.
“אֵל, נָא רְפָא נָא לָהּ” . This is what Miriam and Aharon wanted to achieve and they did. They took risk on themselves for the benefits of all.

And now we have this prayer for us to use every Shabbat to draw the light of healing to us and the sick.

B”H we will merit a day of total unity with the Light, no sickness, no disease of any kind, Today, Amen.

 

" טוֹב-עַיִן, הוּא יְבֹרָךְ: כִּי-נָתַן מִלַּחְמוֹ לַדָּל " (Proverbs 23:9)

The Ari Hakadosh reveals us that Moses\’s root soul came from the good side of " הבל " (Abel, the son of Adam) , which is the letter " ה " and Balaam came from the bad side, which is the letters " בל ". They were both connected to the sefira of "דעת ", Moshe was connected to the side of holiness and Balaam to the negativity and impurity. They were both prophets.

Balak was a grand magician with deeper understanding and knowledge of the spiritual system. He knew what needed to be done in order to eliminate the growth of the Israelites and the threat to his position.

He knew that Balaam was at the same level of Moses from the negative side and that he could be the only one that can separate the connection of Moses and the Israelites to the Light from their root. That is by using the power of words. Not well equipped armies and no sophisticated weapons of mass destructions. Few well selected words by the right person could do the job.

The words come out of the mouth as "הבל ", "vapor" of the mouth. The Ari explains that Balaam, with his words and consciousness, wanted to connect Moses and himself together again (as they were in Abel) and let the evil side (Balaam) overcome the good (Moses).

Another connection to the name is in Numbers 23:20 " הִנֵּה בָרֵךְ, לָקָחְתִּי; וּבֵרֵךְ, וְלֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנָּה ", the first letters of the first three words are spelled "הבל ", the Ari explains that this is where he wanted to take the good from Moses.

Bringing negativity on Moses would have caused him a disconnection from his higher root of the level of Daat "דעת ". This sefira is actually the result of the connection of Chokmah and Binah ( Aba and Ima or Supernal Father and Mother). As a connection to the Light for the whole nation of Yisrael, Balaam and Balak knew that if they were successful, it would be like a spiritual beheading for the Israelites.

Moses was already protected and Balaam was instructed by G-d \’to leave him and the nation alone\’. Balak did not let Balaam walk away. They continued with the plan and after the last attempt (Numbers 24:1-4); Balaam tried to \’trick\’ G-d by changing the method of his curse

" וְלֹא-הָלַךְ כְּפַעַם-בְּפַעַם, לִקְרַאת נְחָשִׁים; וַיָּשֶׁת אֶל-הַמִּדְבָּר, פָּנָיו "

"He went, not like the other times, to meet with enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness"

Then in Numbers 24:3
" וַיִּשָּׂא מְשָׁלוֹ, וַיֹּאמַר: נְאֻם בִּלְעָם בְּנוֹ בְעֹר, וּנְאֻם הַגֶּבֶר שְׁתֻם הָעָיִן "
" And he took up his parable, and said: The saying of Balaam the son of Beor, and the saying of the man whose eye is opened"

In the Hebrew verse we see that there are four words that are missing the letter Vav "ו ". This letter represents the six Sefirot of Zeir Anpin. That was Balaam\’s preparation to cut the Light from the Israelites.

A miracle happened and G-d turned the curse into six words blessing.

"מַה-טֹּבוּ אֹהָלֶיךָ, יַעֲקֹב; מִשְׁכְּנֹתֶיךָ, יִשְׂרָאֵל "
" How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwellings, O Israel!"

Those six words give us the power of protection. The sum of the first letter of each word adds up to 110 and that is equal to "נס ", "Miracle". Also small Gimatria 11, which has the power of overcoming negativity.

Many use this blessing when they enter the synagogue to make a spiritual connection.

The word "מַה" (=45) itself represents the name of G-d at the level of Zeir Anpin, the letter "ו "of the Holy name.

The first word " מַה ", in this parasha appears at the top of the column of the Torah scroll. The Torah is written on 248 columns of 42 rows each. Every column starts with the letter " ו ", except for six places, beginning with the first letter and word of the Torah " ב " of " בְּרֵאשִׁית ". The six letters are " ביה־שמו"numerical value 363 " המשיח " = The Mashiach. Also same value as " משה־חי ", Moses is alive.

Realizing his failure to disconnect the Light from the Top, Balaam suggested Balak that if they cannot stop the light from coming, they can try to drain it out using a connection to the Sixth Sefira of Yesod (the sex organs).

Balak sent beautiful women with magical powers to lure the leaders to connect with them.

The Torah (Numbers 25:1) tells us what happened " וַיֵּשֶׁב יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּשִּׁטִּים; וַיָּחֶל הָעָם, לִזְנוֹת אֶל-בְּנוֹת מוֹאָב "

The word " לִזְנוֹת " describes the spiritual process. The letter Lamed "ל " connects to the upper three sefirot, it is built from " ו " and " כ " (together 26), the next two letters are " זנ " and it means "to feed" " ו " is the channel for Zeir Anpin and the sixth sefira of Yesod, " ת " is the last letter of the Alef-Bet, for Malchut. It this case the Malchut of the negative side.

" וַיִּצָּמֶד יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְבַעַל פְּעוֹר; וַיִּחַר-אַף יְהוָה, בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל "

The light of the nation started flowing toward the negativity and the effect was a plague and 24000 people died before they were saved by Pinchas.

The Light force comes from "above", by the merit of our leaders and spiritual connections. Our actions determine if we can hold and use this light or lose it to negativity.

By the merit of Moses\’ spiritual strength the Israelites were protected from the top and were saved from total destruction.

They lost on the individual level, when they acted negatively.

It is important for us to connect to a righteous person to share his merit and protection of the Light, but we are always responsible for our personal actions.

 

לָכֵן, אֱמֹר: הִנְנִי נֹתֵן לוֹ אֶת-בְּרִיתִי, שָׁלוֹם.

Para poder entender éste artículo profundamente, por favor, lee el artículo del año pasado en: http://rabbishimon.com/index.cfm/feature/23_4 . (No es algo antiguo o un artículo de noticia, pero es bueno hasta que el Mesías esté aquí.) y el comentario de Balak http://rabbishimon.com/index.cfm/feature/147_4

La historia es, que Balak y Balaam intentaron destruír la Nación de Israel. Ellos querían separar a los Israelitas de la Luz del Creador usando maldiciones y métodos espirituales.
Ellos no lo pudieron lograr y entonces decidieron drenar su energía al seducirlos para que tuvieran sexo con las mujeres Midianitas. Ellos tuvieron éxito y la Luz se estaba escapando de la Nación. La oscuridad invadió y el efécto fué una plaga mortal.
Pinchas entendió la verdadera causa de la plaga e inmediatamente se dirigió a corregir la situación.

Él no pensó en si mismo o consultó a su Padre, el gran Sacerdote o a Moisés para que le dieran un consejo. Él creció para seguir el gran lineaje de su familia. Su Padre, el gran Sacerdote, su abuelo, Aharon, el hombre de paz y sus dos tíos, Nadav y Avihu, quienes sacrificaron sus vidas para traer la redención final antes de tiempo y permitirnos una conexión mayor a la Luz del Creador.

Su nivel de dedicación para proteger a la gente lo elevó más cerca a la Luz infinita.
Cuándo estaba sucediendo la acción negativa, Pinchas vió el escape de la Luz yéndose del lado bueno hacia el lado malo del árbol.

Toda su esencia era: "Yo no soy importante"; "Yo estoy aquí para atraer la Luz hacia la gente y quitar la negatividad del mundo".
El tenía la conciencia del árbol de la vida, amor sin interés e incondicional. Pinchas no tenía la conciencia de matar a las personas que causaron la negatividad; simplemente él hizo lo que era necesario para detenerla.

Al atraer la Luz superior de lo infinito para detener la negatividad, tenía que morir y debido a que él reveló la Luz de lo infinito, no podía morir.

Lo que sigue, es una explicación de ésta "paradójica" situación.
Sabemos que cuándo una persona justa muere, toda=2 0la luz que fué generada de sus acciones positivas durante su vida, permanecen en éste mundo.

Pinchas se conectó con la Luz del árbol de la vida con su acción. Pudo haber traído la paz y la redención final, antes de que pudierámos merecerla. Por lo tanto, Pinchas murió y al mismo tiempo reencarnó en las dos almas de sus tíos, Nadav y Avihu, quienes actuaron desinteresadamente para poder traer la redencion final.
Pinchas, no lo pensó o tenía alguan agenda personal. él sabía una cosa, él no era importante. Él estaba allí para hacer la conexión y atraer la Luz para otros.
Él hizo lo que era necesario hacerse. él detuvo la negatividad que pudo haber destruído al mundo entero.

Recuerda, Di-s creó el mundo, para nosotros hacerlo. Si perdemos el balance y la negatividad se apodera de la Luz, sucedería una destrucción total.

Di-s testifíca de la gran acción que hizo Pinchas. (Números 25:11) "הֵשִׁיב אֶת-חֲמָתִי מֵעַל בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל", a calmado mi furia contra los hijos de Israel.

La ley de la atracción es aquí, implementada automáticamente. Pinchas se comportó como el Creador y creó afinidad con la Luz en su máximo nivel, la Luz infinita .
Di-s estaba tan feliz de ser "detenido" y recompensó a Pinchas con el sacerdocio eterno y lo señaló para ser el "guardian del convenio". El "ברית", covenio, es la primera revelación y conexión de Di-s y Abraham. "Paz", "שלום", se refiere en éste caso a la redención Final y a la Paz final.
El Zohar analiza una conversación entre Di-s y Moisés acerca de darle a Pinchas el control sobre Malkut. A como sabemos hay una pequeña Yod "י" agregada al nombre de Pinchas (Números 25:11). Ésta letra representa Malkut. He aquí la discusión que ha sido traducida del Zohar;
"…En ese momento Di-s pensó, que debo hacer con Moisés. El covenio viene de Moisés y la novia, que es Malkut, y le pertenece a él. no está bien de darsela, a Malkut, a otro, sin el conocimiento y la voluntad de Moisés. No es apropiado.
El Santo Uno, Bendito sea, empezó a decirle a Moisés, Moisés, "Pinchas, el hijo de Eleazar, el hijo de Aharon el sacerdote". Moisés contestó, Maestro del Universo, que pasa? El Santo Uno le dijo: tú eres el que ha dado su alma por losIsraelitas muchas veces, para que no fueran borrados de éste mundo. Y Pinchas calmó mi furia contra los hijos de Israel…y Moisés contestó, "Qué es lo que quieres de mí? To do es tuyo y si tú quieres darle a él control sobre Malkut, quien te dirá lo que tienes que hacer?"
La conversación continúa y yo sólo quero traer dos puntos importantes aquí. Uno, es que Di-s tenía que darle a Pinchas control sobre Malkut. Segundo, es la reacción de Moisés. él se podía mover entre los mundos, ver a Di-s y a la gente, pero él todavía pensaba de si mismo, "Yo no soy importante!" que es lo que quieres de mí, Di-s? Haz lo que tú quieras.

Conclusión, Pinchas lo tiene todo. Él nunca murió; él es Elijah, el profeta. El tiene la habilidad de moverse entre los mundos, igual que Moisés. Elijah aparece(cuándo se le pide) en cada "Brit" (ceremonia de circuncición), para proteger la conexión entre la gente y el convenio. Elijah anunciará la llegada del Mesías y la redención final.

Cuándo Rabbi Shimon y su hijo estaban ocultos en la cueva y estudiaban Kabbalah, ellos sólo tenían dos visitantes, Moisés y Elijah. Las dos más "no importantes" personas en la historia humana.

¿Eres tú importante?

 

 Link to Shemini First Part

The second part of the verse "וְעַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָעָם אֶכָּבֵד" explains the effect of the cause of "אֶקָּדֵשׁ" with "אֶכָּבֵד" the parallel is the use of the same number of letters and same vowels. The root of "אֶכָּבֵד "  is "כבד" and it is related to a revelation or "גילוי" in Hebrew. The numerical value of the root is 26, which is the value of the name "יקוק". The action of "קדש" cause "כבד"  or "כבוד" and the revelation of the Light  as it say in Vayikra (9:6)
"וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, זֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה תַּעֲשׂוּ–וְיֵרָא אֲלֵיכֶם, כְּבוֹד יְהוָה. ",
 in (Ezekiel 43:4) "וּכְבוֹד יְהוָה, בָּא אֶל-הַבָּיִת", (Exodus 16:7) "וּרְאִיתֶם אֶת-כְּבוֹד יְהוָה"  and in many other places.

Nadav and Avihu made a great revelation of light that Moshe and Aharon understood. It said (10:3) "וַיִּדֹּם אַהֲרֹן", And Aaron held his peace.

Every Yom Kippur we read from the story and the scarify of Nadav and Avihu from the parasha of Shemini. Yom Kippur is a day of total connection to Binah (We do not eat on that day so our bodily desires won\’t interfere and ground us when drawing the spiritual energy of Binah).

The Ari HaKadosh explains that they wanted to make the correction of the sin of Adam and complete the correction of the world "Tikkum Olam".

Commentaries explain that the fire to burn the sacrifices for Aharon and the Nation came from inside the Tabernacle. When Nadav and Avihu saw the Light of the creator so close to them, they assumed that they had the power, as Kohanim to make the final connection of the Light to the world and remove all negativity. The Ari said that they made few mistakes and they couldn\’t succeed in achieving their goal. This doesn\’t take the value from their action that left us with channel for all generations. Another famous selfless act was done by Miriam the Prophetess and gave us a healing connection. (B"H in another article).

Their death was unique because their body stayed complete when the fire from G-d took their soul like the fire that comes down to burn the sacrifices.

Later we read in the Torah in Parashat Ballak about Pinchas the Kohen doing an extreme act of killing the head of the tribe of Shimon in order to stop a plague that invaded the camp of Yisrael. The Zohar explains that after he killed Zimri, the people of his tribe came to attack Pinchas and out of fright, his soul went out of his body and got replaced by the soul of Nadav and Avihu, his uncles. This also explains why Pinchas could stay as a Kohen after he made the killing. His new soul had no part in the killing. We also know that Pinchas became Eliyahu the Prophet and he never died. We all know the role of Eliyahu Hanavie in every Brit that connects the soul to the Light; He visits us in the Night of the Seder to connect us to the final redemption and will come to announce the Mashiach (B"H today, Amen.)

Parashat Shemini has 91 verses and as we showed earlier it is the gimatria value of Nadav and Avihu. The parasha also has the middle of the Torah in double letters (10:16) "דָּרֹשׁ דָּרַשׁ" and the middle of the Torah in Letters (11:42) with the Large letter "ו " that we know is the letter that channels the light of the Torah as it appears at the top of every column in the Torah (except for 6 special places) and its size makes a bridge to Binah. 

Please read this article several times to get better understanding of the higher connection we get this Shabbat from the Torah reading of Shemini.
