|Week of Januarry 18, 2009 Shabbat Va'era Tevet 28, 5769|
This weeks reading is Va'Era. This translates as I will appear but do to the preceding vav is translated as I appeared. It is the story of the first 7 plagues which destroyed the 7 lower sephirot of the impure system.
This is a difficult thing for people to understand. In Isaiah he says God created both Good and Evil. It teaches us that the pure and impure systems are built on the same structure - that of the 10 Sephirot. Actually it is people who create the impure system by their actions. HaShem just gave us the opportunity to make a mistake and then correct it. This is evil and Tikune (correction). Much is concealed in this teaching.
There are 121 verses in this reading. The code words we are given by the sages are Gimel Yood Bet Ayin Vav Lamed and Yood Ayin Yood Aleph Lamed. The second word means a scoop of God (Kel). The first one means the yoke of 15. 15 represents the Gematria of the name of God called Yah.
121 is the square of 11. As briefly mentioned last week there are 11 components in the Ketoret. The Ketoret is used as a ritual to bring one closer to HaShem after cleansing.
The essence of the parasha is cleansing. it is not speaking about the historical redemption - The Torah is speaking to you today about your redemption and what you need to cleanse. As one reads each section of the 7 plagues one needs to contemplate the Sephirot of the impure side and its meaning to gain the most effective cleansing. So here is a list of the sephirot and the relationship to the impure sephirot.
Blood - Malchut. Why did HaShem change the water of the Nile into Blood?
Frogs - Yesod. Why was it necessary for the Frogs to jump into the bread in the ovens and then live in the Egyptian people (Midrash).
Lice - Hod. Why could the Magicians of Pharohs court not duplicate the Lice?
Swarm of Wild Beasts - Netzach. Why is this the same word as Erev - Evening?
Animal Epidemic - Tiferet. Why were animals used in this plague?
Boils - Gevurah. How do Boils cleanse judgment?
Hail - Chesed. Water has three forms - Steam; Liquid; and Ice. How does Hail relate to this?
This will be a week that it is important to receive the innoculation of the Torah reading so one does not have to manifest cleansing in ones physical life.
Enjoy the Reading!
