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 continue our focus upon the PARASHAT ACHAREI by placing our ATTENTION upon the following passage found in the SIDRAH, it is written, “HASHEM spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to AARON and to his sons and to all the Children of Israel, and say to them: This is the matter that HASHEM has commanded saying: Any man from the House of Israel who will slaughter an ox, a sheep, or a goat in the camp, or who will slaughter outside the camp, and has not brought it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting to bring it as an offering to HASHEM before the Tabernacle of HASHEM - it shall be considered as bloodshed for that man, he has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from the midst of his people.” (Leviticus 17:1-4) In this REVELATION, it is disclosed to the NAVI MOSHE INSTRUCTIONS on the execution of SERVICES outside the TABERNACLE. According to RASHI and SIFRA, the reference is to ANIMALS that have been consecrated as offerings and it commands that their service must be performed in the SANCTUARY. The question is, “To what purpose are these instructions concerning SERVICE OUTSIDE THE TABERNACLE?”

ECHAD is a G-d of BALANCE. This is indicative in the NATURE of the UNIVERSE OF BECOMING. The NATURE of the UNIVERSE of BECOMING is ONE of CONTRAST, such as, LIGHT and DARK, GOOD and EVIL, COLD and HOT, and the like. To MAINTAIN the UNIVERSE of BECOMING, there is a rhythmic SWING. The rhythmic swing is a CONSCIOUS swing from one extreme to the OTHER. The RHYTHMIC SWING occurs to bring BALANCE to the UNIVERSE to AID in the process of BECOMING, thus creating the “BALANCE” of “POWER.” The POWER is ECHAD.

Therefore the INSTRUCTIONS that are given for the SERVICE OUTSIDE THE TABERNACLE serve as an analogy to illustrate that we are given POWER, i.e. the AUTHORITY to INFLUENCE thought, opinion and behavior not for the PURPOSE of LORDING over one ANOTHER, yea, we are to dominate THINGS not PEOPLE, but for the PURPOSE of bringing BALANCE to our SPHERE of AUTHORITY.
