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.

KI SISA Part 2

Shalom, Shalom. We continue our focus upon the PARASHAT KI SISA by placing our attention on the instructions given to the NAVI MOSHE concerning the LAVER. It is written, “You shall make a copper Laver and its base of copper, for washing; place it between the Tent of Meeting and the Altar, and put water there. From it, Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands together with their feet. Whenever they come to the Tent of Meeting, they shall wash with water and not die, or when they approach the Altar to serve, to raise up in smoke a fire offering to HaShem. They shall wash their hands and feet and not die. It shall  be for them an eternal decree, for him and his offspring for their generations.” (Exodus 30:18-21) In this passage of TORAH, it is disclosed that before approaching HASHEM, the KOHANIM are commanded to WASH their hands and feet. The question is, “Why is WASHING NECESSARY in the APPROACH of G-d?”

In the UNIVERSE of BECOMING, the INFOLDMENT is the MANIFESTATION of G-d in FORM and DOMINION over the WORKS of His Hands. The INFOLDMENT is the product of INTERNALIZING in order to experience HASHEM. The principle is that what is EXTERNAL is the product of the INTERNAL. Thus focusing upon HASHEM that is WITHIN gives rise to His manifestation WITHOUT. In other words, the manifestation of the INVISIBLE ATTRIBUTES in FORM as well as DOMINION over the works of His HANDS is the result of INTERNALIZING. The UNIVERSE of BECOMING is a MOVEMENT caused by the realization of a CONSCIOUS UNION with G-d.

No doubt the washing of the HANDS and FEET that are EXTERNAL are to keep in remembrance that the discipline of the KOHANIM is that of INTERNALIZING in order to manifest G-d in FORM and exercise DOMINION over the WORKS of His HANDS.
