The Torah scroll: a revelation of the Divine word

Kabbalah: A language for the Revelation of the Divine light

The Torah is the great repository and record of our connection with the Divine. Its very words are vessels which hold within them the Divine revelation, as it was, as it is, and as it will be. Its very essence is one with the Divine. It is both the garments for the Divine, and it is one with the Divine who is clothed within it.

Of all the vast and varied creation, it is only Man who has the ability to sense the feelings of his fellow, what pains him and what makes him happy. Thus, only the human being has the ability to engage with the Divine, until, like Moses, we will be able to encounter God as a man speaks to his neighbor.

The Torah uses four languages with which we describe such encounters; the languages of the Tanach, the Halachah, the Aggadah, and the Kabbalah. Each language is an expression of the Divine … they all need each other and they all open up for us ways we too can reach up to our Creator.

From the essay Torat Hakabbalah Umahutah by Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag.

Dedicated for the souls’ ascension of Yaacov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah, Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim and Ayal ben Iris Teshurah zichronom l’vrachah, who gave their lives al Kiddush HaShem,  in the sanctification of God’s name.
