Neo Hassidic - Letting HASHEM into our lives is what it's all about. We do it through our exuberance in our own ideas and acts in regard to dress, prayer, song, dance, and Torah learning. All this stimulates us to do "The Mitzvot " making this world a better place for ourselves and everyone else, Jewish or not.

Shalom, Shalom. We commence this DEVAR TORAH by focusing upon the title, TERUMAH. The IVRI transliteration TERUMAH carries with it the idea of a RAISED UP PORTION. In particular the reference to TERUMAH, i.e. a raised up portion, has to do with the contributions that were prescribed by the Holy Blessed One of Yisrael, Blessed be His Name, to construct the Tabernacle, its vessels and the priestly garments.

It is essential to our understanding of the relevance of these instructions for this PRESENT TIME, some FOUNDATIONAL TRUTHS that have been made reference to in some of the preceding DEVAR TOROT. In particular the principle that we occupy a UNIVERSE of BECOMING. It has been noted that CREATION is the PRODUCT of HASHEM calling HIMSELF into BEING. In other words, HE IS THE WORD that HE SPOKE and came into BEING. This can be described as the ONE (ECHAD) G-d becoming the MANY. Thus at the ESSENCE of ALL EXISTENCE is HASHEM, Blessed be His Name.

Because the ESSENCE of ALL CREATION is HASHEM, the indication is that HIDDEN within ALL EXISTENCE is UNLIMITED POTENTIAL. This CONCEALED STATE of G-d, that is, UNLIMITED POTENTIAL has been predetermined to be REVEALED, its is written, “Bless is His glorious NAME forever, and may all the earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen.” (Psalm 72:19) The glory of G-d may be delineated as the VISIBLE manifestation of HIS INVISIBLE ATTRIBUTES. Thus the MIZMOR discloses that the ESSENCE that is HIDDEN within CREATION is destined to come into MANIFESTATION.

The instructions that were given to the NAVI Moshe concerning the TABERNACLE, ITS VESSELS AND THE PRIESTLY GARMENTS have to do with the UNFOLDMENT of the UNLIMITED POTENTIAL that is HIDDEN within INANIMATE CREATION, yea, following the INSTRUCTIONS gave rise to the MANIFESTATION of the SHECHINAH. In other words, they were ESOTERIC INSTRUCTIONS that had been given to the MYSTIC to UNFOLD the GLORY of HASHEM. Indeed this discloses the concept that we are responsible for bringing HEAVEN TO EARTH!

We are living in the SEASON that the NAVI DANIEL described as KNOWLEDGE INCREASING (READ DANIEL 12:4). The INCREASE of KNOWLEDGE is that of TECHNOLOGY. WHILE the INCREASE of TECHNOLOGY MAY offer some CREATURE COMFORTS, the abuse thereof gives rise to destruction. As Jews we have the CORPORATE PURPOSE of being TIKKUN OLAM, that is, repairers of the WORLD. An aspect of this preparation is achieved by EMPLOYING ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE to UNFOLD the UNLIMITED POTENTIAL that is HID within EXISTENCE to MANIFEST the UNLIMITED POTENTIAL in ALL.
