ADV Parsha Vayishlach

וישלח בס”ד In וישלח which is the eighth Parsha, the end of the Parsha speaks of the eight kings of אדום. After the reign of these eight kings, כלל ישראל had their eight kings כשזה קם זה נופל from the prophesy to Rivka ולאם מלאם יאמץ. Yaakov is working on a diplomatic solution to abate Esav’s hatred, and so he sent 550 or 580 animals … Continue reading ADV Parsha Vayishlach

ADV Parsha Vayetze

     ויצא         בס” ד  There is no פתוחות or סתומות in Parshas ויצא which is a רמז that Yaakov is going into Galus.

ADV Toldos/Chanuka

 תולדות  בס”ד   The תקוני זהר says that the first twenty four days of Kislev are כנגד the twenty four letters of the  ברוך שם כבוד, and Chanuka on כה כסלו is כנגד the twenty five letters in שמע ישראל..

ADV Parashat Chayei Sara

חיי שרה   בס”ד   Usually Parshas חיי שרה falls on the Shabbos that precedes חודש כסלו, כס the hidden light, the אור הגנוז, that was lit for לו, thirty six hours. In this Parsha, we encounter גן עדן. The זוהר חדש, the ילקוט ראובני and the   מגלה עמוקות all say that the מערת המכפלה was the פתח to גן עדן. When Avraham was chasing after the בקר, he entered … Continue reading ADV Parashat Chayei Sara

ADV Parsha Vayera

 וירא בס”ד       The laining of ר”ה is in Parshas וירא, and so we get a הארה of ר”ה on שבת וירא. Even though we are entering into the apparent ירידה of חשון, when there is no Yomim Tovim, there is a revelation- וירא. What bothers Rashi is why the pasuk says that the revelation was in  אלני ממרא, when we know that Avraham was there? Why … Continue reading ADV Parsha Vayera
