ISRAEL ŞI NAŢIUNILE LUMII
1.01 Zohar for All, Shemot [Exodus],
“Who Send Out Freely the Ox and the Donkey,” Item 67
“Happy are you who sow beside all waters, who send out freely the ox and the donkey.” Happy are Israel, whom the Creator desires more than all the nations and brought them close to Him, as it is written, “The Lord your God has chosen you.” It is also written, “For the portion of the Lord is His people, Jacob the lot of His inheritance.” And Israel adhere to the Creator, as it is written, “But you who cling unto the Lord your God.”
1.02 Zohar for All, Emor,
“I was Sanctified in Three Degrees,” Item 92
In what place does one sanctify himself in Kedusha [holiness], to include himself in it? When one comes to write, the Lord of Hosts, mentioned after the third Kadosh [third “Holy,” said during a prayer], Netzah and Hod, in which there is the matter, “I the Lord sanctify you.” After the three times Kadosh, we say only “the Lord of Hosts,” meaning we do not include ourselves there.
Afterwards, when one comes to the verse, “The whole earth is full of His glory,” when Kedusha is extended to Malchut, he should include himself in Kedusha, to be sanctified below, within that glory below, Malchut, as it is written, “And was sanctified by My glory.” Afterwards he should work in particular, first including himself in Malchut, in the glory below, in the verse, “The whole earth is full of His glory,” containing the whole earth and all the nations, and then he will extend Kedusha in particular, only to Israel, so that everything will be sanctified. And from Israel, Kedusha will extend to the whole world.
1.03 Zohar for All, Ki Tazria [When a Woman Inseminates],
“He Shall Be Brought Unto the Priest,” Item 138
I see the people in the world who do not observe and do not know the glory of their Master. It is written about Israel, “I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine,” and it is written, “Sanctify yourselves and be holy; for I am holy.” And if they part from the Creator, where is their sanctity? After all, it is their desire that turns away from Him.
The writing declares and says, “Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understand- ing.” Indeed, what is the difference between a human and a horse or a mule? Only their sanctity—to be whole and marked above all.
1.04 Zohar for All, Tetzaveh [Command],
“And You, Bring … Near You,” Item 39
“From among the children of Israel,” since everything is called “one” being one, as it should be, only from among the children of Israel. This is so because the children of Israel stand below to open ways, to illuminate paths, to light the candles, which are the upper Sefirot, and to bring everything from below upwards so all will be one. This is why it is written, “But you that cleave unto the Lord.”
1.05 Zohar for All, Pekudei [Accounts],
“And Moses Established the Tabernacle,” Item 393
The Creator chose Israel for His lot and portion, and brought them near Him. He made of them certain degrees in this world, the patriarchs, such as above, to perfect all the worlds as one, above and below, as it is written, “The heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool,” to perfect above and below into being one.
1.06 Zohar for All, Pekudei [Accounts],
“The Hair in the Tefillin,” Item 337
The holy Israel, which is a single nation in holy unification, the Creator gives them a counsel by which to be saved from everything.
1.07 Zohar for All, Ki Tazria [When a Woman Inseminates],
“Infected Houses,” Item 145
Happy are Israel who adhere to the Creator and whom the Creator loves, as it is written, “I have loved you, says the Lord.” And for His love, He brought them into the holy land to instill His Divinity among them and to dwell with them, so Israel will be holier than all the people in the world.
1.08 Zohar for All, Kedoshim,
“Oh Land Of Whirring Wings,” Item 20
The Creator did not want all the nations of the world but only Israel. He made them a single nation in the world and called them “One nation,” as His name. He crowned them with several crowns and with several Mitzvot [commandments] to crown in.
1.09 Zohar for All, Kedoshim,
“Oh Land Of Whirring Wings,” Item 25
These are the ones who are called, “the sons of the Creator.” And for this reason, it is written, “You shall be holy for I the Lord am holy.” Happy are Israel for not placing this thing in another place, for not wanting anything in return for their holiness, except to truly adhere to Him, to Him and not to another. Hence, “You shall be holy for I, the Lord your God am holy.”
1.10 Zohar for All, Emor,
“So That He Will Not Profane His Offspring among His People,” It.36
Happy are Israel in this world and in the next world, for it is written about them, “And I will distin- guish you from the nations to be unto Me.” How distinguished are Israel from everyone in Kedusha [holiness], to serve the Creator, as it is written, “Sanctify and be holy for I am the Lord your God.”
1.10 Zohar for All, On the Eighth Day,
“That You Should Be Defiled by Them,” Item 117
The Creator is destined to purify Israel. With what will He purify them? With what is written, “And I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be pure.” These are the waters of mercy, which clothe and include the illumination of the left, from which the purity comes. And since they are purified, they are sanctified, for they cling to the sanctity of ZA, which has the Mochin of AVI, called, “holiness.” And Israel, who cling to the Creator, are called, “holiness,” as it is written, “Israel is the Lord’s sacred portion, the first of His harvest.” It is also written, “And you shall be holy men unto Me.” Happy are Israel, for the Creator says about them, “You shall be holy, for I am holy,” since it is written, “and to Him shall you cling,” and, “He has not dealt so with any nation; and as for His ordinances, they have not known them, halleluiah.”
1.11 Zohar for All, Aharei Mot [After the Death],
“And Aaron Shall Cast Lots upon the Two Goats,” Item 115
Happy are Israel more than all the idol-worshipping nations, for the Creator wishes to purify them and have mercy on them, for they are His lot and inheritance, as it is written, “For the portion of the Lord is His people, Jacob the lot of His inheritance.” It is also written, “He made him ride on the high places of the earth.” They grip above, in ZA, hence the love of the Creator clings to them, as it is written, “I have loved you, says the Lord.”
And out of the great love that He loves them, He has given them one day in the year to purify and cleanse themselves of all their iniquities, as it is written, “For on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you,” so they are worthy in this world, in the next world, and there will be no sin among them. For this reason, on that day Israel are crowned and rule over all the seekers of Din and over all the spirits.
1.12 Zohar for All, Kedoshim,
“Oh Land Of Whirring Wings,” Item 22
Let one come and exert in the one. The Creator, who is one, will exert in the one, which is Israel, for the King exerts only in what is worthy of Him. This is why it is written, “He is in the one, and who will turn Him?” The Creator dwells and is present only in the one. “And He is in the one,” as one who has been established in upper Kedusha [holiness] to be one, in Israel. Then He is in the one, and not in another nation.
1.13 Zohar for All, Emor, “Every Letter of the Name Is the Wholeness of the Whole Name,”It. 70
Israel ascend from below upward, as it is written, “And your descendants will be as the dust of the earth.” It is also written, “I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven.” They will rise from the dust of the earth to the stars of the heaven. Afterwards, they rise above everything and adhere to the uppermost place, as it is written, “And you who adhere to the Lord your God.”
1.14 Zohar for All, Emor, “So That He Will Not Profane His Offspring among His People,” It.37
“Salvation is the Lord’s, Your blessing is upon Your people, Selah.” Happy are Israel, for wherever they are exiled, the Shechina [Divinity] is exiled with them. Thus, when Israel come out of exile, the Shechina will also come out of exile. To whom will be the redemption, to the Creator or to Israel? Salvation is certainly the Lord’s. When? When “Your blessing is upon Your people, Selah,” when the Creator watches over Israel with blessings, to bring them out of exile and do good to them. At that time, salvation is certainly the Lord’s, for the Shechina will come out of exile. For this reason, the Creator will bring the people of Israel back from the exile, as it is written, “And the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity and have mercy on you,” where “bring” means that He, too, will return with Israel from the exile.
1.15 Zohar for All, Pinhas,
“Let Israel Rejoice in Those who Make Him,” Item 118
Oh how Israel are loved by the Creator. Their joy and their praises are only about Him, for any joy of Israel in which they do not include the Creator is not joy.
1.16 Zohar for All, Haazinu,
“An Apple and a Lily,” Item 9
Israel’s fate is better than that of all the idol-worshipping nations for the rest of the nations were given to appointed ministers to govern them while the fate of holy Israel is good in this world and in the next world since the Creator did not give them to an angel or to another ruler, but took them for His lot, as it is written, “For the lot of the Lord are His people,” and as it is written, “For the Lord chose Jacob for Himself.”
1.17 Zohar for All, Haazinu,
“As an Eagle Stirs Up Its Nest,” Item 240
Happy are Israel for the Creator leads them. It is written about them, “For the Lord chose Jacob for Himself, Israel for His treasure.” It is also written, “The Lord will not abandon His people because of His great name,” since they have adhered to one another because Israel adhered to His great name. For this reason, the Creator will not leave them, as wherever they are, the Creator is with them.
1.18 Zohar for All, Ki Tetze,
“Ten Shofarot [festive horns],” Item 142
It is written, the mother broods on the chicks. Israel tweet to her with several tweets of the prayers and she does not want to come down to them, to shine from above downward. She does not want to change from Katnut [infancy], when she lays and illuminates only from below upward.
What do Israel do? They take with them the mother, Shechina [Divinity] and tie her in a knot of Tefillin. When they reach the Shema reading, her sons call by the six words of unification, “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one,” which are HGT NHY of ZA from Gadlut [adulthood].
They come down to their mother, the Shechina, and tie themselves to her in the unification of “Blessed is the name of His kingdom forever and ever.” This is the meaning of the verse, “The appointed times of the Lord which you shall call.” You shall call the VAK of Gadlut of ZA to illu- minate in the Shechina, as then she will shine the Hassadim from above downward. This is her season, the time of her Zivug, as it is written, “My special times,” that you will call them on My times, on My season.
1.19 Zohar for All, VaYelech [And Moses Went],
“And Moses Went,” Item 1
Happy are Israel, whom the Creator desires. And because He desired them, He called them, “Holy firstborn sons,” brothers, as though He came down to live with them, as it is written, “And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.” He wished to correct them such as above, placed seven clouds of glory over them, and His Divinity walks before them.
1.20 Zohar for All, New Zohar,
Song of Songs, “The Incense,” Item 357
All the camps of all the other nations spread and divide from one another. This is why Israel are called “one nation,” since they are in unity and in one connection. This is why they are called “connected flock,” unlike the rest of the nations.
1.21 Zohar for All, BeShalach [When Pharaoh Sent],
“When Moses Entered the Cloud,” Item 305
Why was the land lost? The Creator said, “For abandoning My law.” As long as Israel engaged in Torah, the power and courage of all the idolaters was broken, as it is written, “Your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.” As long as the voice of Israel was heard in synagogues and seminaries
1.22 Zohar for All, BeShalach [When Pharaoh Sent],
The Enemy Said, “I Will Pursue,” Items 313-314
“The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake.’” “The enemy said” is the great appointee over Egypt. When he was given dominion over Israel he contemplated obliterating them under his government. But the Creator remembered the greatest in the generation, the patriarchs, who were protecting them. And do not say that only he wished to obliterate them. Rather, all those ministers appointed over all the idol worshipping nations wish to obliterate Israel under them when they are given authority and governance over Israel.
Hence, all those peoples that are governed by those appointees inflict laws to destroy Israel, but the Creator remembers the greatest in the generation, the patriarchs, and protects them. When Moses saw that, he began to praise the Creator and said, “Who is like You among the gods, O Lord?”
1.23 Zohar for All, Aharei Mot [After the Death],
“It Is Forbidden to Teach Torah to One Who Was Not Circumcised,” Items 300-302
Anyone who has been circumcised and inscribed in the holy name is given in the revealed words in the Torah. He is informed in acronyms, in summaries, and the strict caution of the Mitzvot of the Torah is placed on him. And not more, until he rises to another degree, as it is written, “He declares His words to Jacob.” However, “His statutes and His ordinances are to Israel.” This is a higher degree, as it is written, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name.”
Thus, Israel is more important than Jacob. This is why it is written, “His statutes and His ordi- nances to Israel,” which are the secrets of the Torah, the laws of the Torah, and the concealed matters of the Torah. This should be revealed only to one who is at a higher level, as it should be.
And as it is with Israel, that only to those who are at a high level is the Torah revealed, it is even more so to idol worshipping nations. And anyone who has not been circumcised, but is given even one small letter in the Torah, it is as though he ruined the world and is lying in the name of the Creator, for everything depends on the circumcision, and one is connected to the other. The Torah is tied to the circumcision, as it is written, “If My covenant is not day and night, I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth.”
It is written, “This is the law [Torah] that Moses placed before the children of Israel.” He placed it before the children of Israel, but he did not place it before the rest of the nations. This is why it is written, “Speak to the children of Israel,” and it is written, “And to the children of Israel you will say,” And likewise all of them: only to Israel.
1.24 Zohar for All, Aharei Mot [After the Death],
“And You Came and Defiled My Land,” Item 295
Happy are Israel, whom the Creator desires more than all the idol-worshipping nations. Out of His love for them, He has given them true laws, planted among them the tree of life, ZA, and placed the Shechina among them. It is because Israel are inscribed in a holy inscription in their flesh, and it is apparent that they are His, from the dwellers of His palace.
1.25 Zohar for All, Balak,
“And the Donkey Saw the Angel of the Lord,” Items 439-441
“Go forth, daughters of Zion, and gaze on King Solomon, on the crown with which his mother crowned him on the day of his wedding.” King Solomon is ZA; his mother is Bina.
At that time, she rejoices with all the King’s sons, who are those who come from the side of Israel. They do not connect with the Zivug of ZA and Malchut, and only Israel stand with them, as they are the household who serve them. They raise MAN through their Torah and prayer, which awaken for the Zivug. For this reason, the blessings that come out from the Zivug of ZA and Malchut are Israel’s. Israel take everything, all the blessings that come out from the illumination of the Zivug of
ZA and Malchut, and send a part of them to the rest of the nations, and the rest of the nations are nourished by that part. From the side of the portion of the appointees over the rest of the nations, a very thin trail comes out. From there extends the part of the external ones and the nations of the world, and from there it divides into several sides. This is what we call the “extract,” which comes from the holy land, Malchut.
For this reason, the whole world drinks from the extract of the land of Israel, as the land of Israel is Malchut. Whether above or below, all other idol-worshipping nations are nourished only by that extract, and even the bottom Sefirot are nourished from that extract.
1.26 Zohar for All, Balak,
“And the Donkey Saw the Angel of the Lord,” Item 441
Great illuminations come out from the Zivug of ZA and Malchut through the unification of the three lines. Israel take everything because they are adhered to the middle line while the nations of the world and all the external ones, which are adhered to the left line without the right, cannot receive from the illuminations of that Zivug.
For this reason, Israel receive the whole illumination of the Zivug, since they are adhered to the middle line, which includes everything, and because they raised MAN and caused that Zivug.
1.27 Zohar for All, Balak,
“And the Donkey Saw the Angel of the Lord,” Item 441
The whole world drinks from the extract of the land of Israel since only Israel were chosen from the whole world to adhere to the middle line. Hence, they take all the illumination of the Zivug, and the rest of the world only the extract, as in, a thin trail, called the “lane in the vineyards.” It is a trail from the ministers of the rest of the nations that are blessed from it, since the ministers of the nations of the world are called “vineyards,” and that thin trail from the left line, from which they are blessed, is called the “lane in the vineyards.”
1.28 Zohar for All, Balak,
“And Dawned on Them from Seir,” Items 150-151
Before he notifies the ministers of the nations, each day they would chase Israel for her and kill them. But He made it that He invited them and they did not want. They gave Him gifts and presents so that Israel would receive it, and Moses received all of them to give to Israel, as it is written, “You have ascended on high, You have led captive Your captives; You have received gifts among men.” This is why Israel inherited the Torah without objections and without any complaints at all.
The witnesses of the children of Israel are the gifts and presents they had received from the ministers of the nations. For this reason, death did not govern, and nor did the Sitra Achra [other side]. And not only did they receive the Torah without any objections, they also received gifts and presents from everyone.
1.29 Zohar for All, Lech Lecha [Go Forth],
“Bless the Lord, You His Angels,” Items 315-318
“Bless the Lord, you His angels… hearing unto the voice of His word.” Happier are Israel than all the other nations of the world, for the Creator has chosen them from among all nations, and has made them His share and His lot. Hence, He has given them the holy Torah, since they were all in one desire at Mount Sinai and preceded doing to hearing, as they said, “We shall do and we shall hear.” And since they preceded doing to hearing, the Creator called upon the angels and told them: “Thus far, you were the only ones before Me in the world. Henceforth, My children on the earth are your friends in every way. You have no permission to sanctify My name until Israel bond with you in the earth, and all of you together will join to sanctify My name, since they preceded doing to hearing, as the high angels do in the firmament,” as it is written, “Bless the Lord, you His angels
… They do His word,” first. And then it is written, “Hearing the voice of His word.”
“Bless the Lord, you His angels” are the righteous in the land. They are as important before the Creator as the high angels in the firmament, since they are mighty and powerful, for they overcome their inclination like a hero who triumphs over his enemies. “Hearing the voice of His word” means being rewarded hearing a voice from above every day and at any time they need.
Who can stand with them, these high, holy ones? Happy are they for they can stand before them. Happy are those who can be saved from them. The Creator’s guidance is over them each day. How can we stand before them? This is why it is written, “Choose, and bring near, so he may dwell in Your courts,” as well as, “Happy is the man whose strength is in You.”
1.30 Zohar for All, Noah,
“That Jew,” Items 108-110
And when the moon is properly filled with blessings above, Israel come and nurse from her alone. This is why it is written, “On the eighth day you will have an assembly.” An assembly is a gathering, since all that was gathered from the upper blessings, other nations do not nurse from her but Israel. This is why it is written, “You will have an assembly,” you, and not the rest of the nations; you and not the rest of the appointees.
For this reason, Israel appease the Creator with water that they pour over the altar to give to the appointees of the nations some of the blessings, so they will engage in it and avoid mingling with the joy of Israel as they suckle the upper blessings. It is written about that day, “My beloved is for me, and I am for him,” for none other mingles with us.
There is an allegory about a king who invited his loved one for a meal that he was having on a certain day, so the one who loves the king would know that the king favors him. The king said, “Now I want to rejoice alone with the one who loves me, yet I fear that when I am at the meal with the one who loves me, all those appointed officers will come and sit with us at the table to join the meal of joy together with the one who loves me.”
What did the lover do? First, he made stews of vegetables and ox meat, and gave it to those appointed officers to eat, and then the king sat alone with the one who loves him for that sublime meal with all the delicacies in the world. And while he was alone with the king, he asks him for all his needs, and he gives him. And the king rejoices alone with the one who loves him, and no foreigners will interfere between them. Such are Israel with the Creator. This is why it is written, “On the eighth day you will have an assembly.”
1.31 Zohar for All, Balak,
“Fear Not, My Servant Jacob,” Items 56-57
There has not been a day since the world was created when the Creator had to be with Israel as that time when Balaam wanted to obliterate Israel’s enemies from the world. The Creator said about this, “Balaam wanted to obliterate you from the world but I will not do so. Rather, as it is written, ‘For I will destroy completely all the nations where I have scattered you, only I will not destroy you completely.’ If all the nations of the world come, they will not be able to obliterate you from the world.” Laban came first and wanted to uproot only Jacob from the world. The Creator came and protected him. Pharaoh came and wanted to obliterate them from the world. The Creator came and protected them. Haman came and wanted to obliterate them from the world. The Creator came and turned everything on its head. Likewise, in each and every generation, the Creator always protects Israel.
1.32 Raaiah Kook,
The love of Israel must be nourished. It is unlike the natural love in every nation, which is found in its members. The basis of every nation is natural and simple, a necessity of life and congregation, the satisfaction of natural and convenient desires through a group that has close ties to one another. That desire does not need to be awakened by means of education and learning.
However, connecting the assembly of Israel is built primarily on common spiritual aspirations, which themselves require much spiritual strengthening and reinforcement in the heart of every individual, and even more so in the life of the whole public.
1.33 Zohar for All, BeShalach [When Pharaoh Sent],
“When Moses Entered the Cloud,” Items 305-306
There is nothing in the world that breaks the force of idol worshipping nations as when Israel engage in Torah. As long as Israel engage in Torah, the right strengthens and the power and courage of the idol worshipping nations breaks. This is why the Torah is called “strength,” as it is written, “The Lord will give strength to His people.”
When Israel do not engage in Torah, the left intensifies and the power of the idol worshipping nations grows. They suckle from the left, rule over Israel, and inflict upon them laws that they cannot endure. Because of that, Israel were exiled and scattered among the nations.
1.34 Zohar for All, Truma [Donation],
“Who Is She Who Looks Forth Like the Dawn,” Item 1
“For Jacob has chosen Koh [the Lord] for himself, Israel for his merit.” How beloved are the children of Israel before the Creator, who desires them, and who wishes to cling unto them and to bond with them, and who has made them a single nation in the world, as it is written, “And what one nation on the earth is like Your people Israel,” and they desired Him and bonded with Him. It is written, “For Jacob has chosen Koh [the Lord] for himself,” and it is written, “For the Lord’s portion is His people.” And to the rest of the nations He has given ministers to rule over them, while He took Israel into His portion.
