|Week of November 30, 2008 Shabbat Vayeitzei Kislev 9, 5769|
The name of this weeks portion is Vayeitzei which means "and He Went or departed". There are 148 verses in the portion and the code words from the Sages are Chet Lamed Koof Yood and Mem Chet Noon Yood Mem Sofit. Chet Lamed Koof Yood means "my portion" or "my part or section". The second word can mean a few things. Like "Clean Sea" or "from a beautiful sea" or "sea camp". It also is the name of the camp that is the last word in the Torah portion.
148 in small Gematria connects to unity. 148 also is the Gematria of the Spherot Netzach. Netzach translate as eternal victory usually. Netzhak represents the lower triangle of the Star of David and also its connection to sharing or the right column.
The Zohar explains that Yaacov left Be'er Sheva and went towards Charan. It explains that Be'er Sheva is a code word for our physical world and that Charan is a code word for the negative side of Wrath and Judgement.
During this portion 11 sons are born to Jacob and 1 daughter or 12 daughters according to some Midrashim. Each of these children are given a name and we are given some explanations about these names.
It is said in the Talmud and in the writings of other sages that when a baby is named the person doing the naming is given Ruach HaKodesh (spiritual insight just slightly below prophecy) and that the name given is a metaphor and vessel for the light of that soul. We learn from this that the study of a persons name will give the person insight into thier Tikune - thier correction - their purpose of being in this world in this generation.
It is reccomended that the reader stop for a few seconds when reaching the Name for the first time and the congregation can meditate on the Letters that come from the Sefer Yetzirah about this name, tribe, sign.
I am inserting links for the 11 names of the Tribes. Each Tribe connects to an Astrological sign. by studying which Tribe connects to this month and studying the messages in the verses from Tanach that connect to this name, month, and sign one can get additional hints about their Tikune or correction.
Please note their are different connections from different Mekubalim between the Tribes and the months of the year - There are times that the Tribes and months have different relationships. This is based on weather one is working / being in the world of Assiyah or Yetzirah. There is also discussion about the relationship changing after the sin of the Golden Calf and the tribe of Levi being elevated to the Avodah (work) in the Temple.
For this reading of the portion - this is the reccomended connections. Some may choose to do other connections.
Reuben- Dalet and Hay - Month of Nissan
Shimon - Pey Vav - Month of Iyar
Levi - Zion Resh - Month of Sivan
Yehudah - Chet and Taf - Month of Tammuz
Dan - Dalet and Nun - Month of Cheshvan
Naftali - Samekh and Gimmel - Month of Kislev

For those of you who are interested in learning about your names and the verses from Tanach in which HaShem speaks to you . Write to me with your name (what people call you) and a Hebrew name if you have it and use it. All of this is Torah and thus free of charge although donations are requested and i remind you that there is a spiritual law that teaches energy must be exchanged for energy or it creates "Bread of Shame" in your life.
There are many essences in this Parasha but I believe that the true essence is to Know that HaShem is one and His Name is one. While we see 12 Tribes there is only one nation. While we see 12 months there is only 1 year. Do you want to see the chaos (the seperation of things) or the blessing (the unity of all). The choice is yours!
An example of this is the financial and credit crises - If you know that HaShem is in charge then this is just an opportunity to grow spiritually by not being concerned with the prognosticators of doom. Did you loose your job, your home, your health? Know that Hashem has something better in store for you and is just waiting for you to cleanse yourself. Why don't you start - with the messages he has for you connected to your name!
Enjoy the Reading!
