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 INTERPRETATION of the title of the PARASHAT, “BEHAR.” The IVRI transliteration BEHAR is descriptive of being “ON THE MOUNT.” Both from the PHYSICAL and SPIRITUAL perspectives, the term MOUNT is indicative of the idea of ELEVATION. With this idea in MIND, we place our ATTENTION on the following passage found in the SIDRAH, it is written, “HaShem spoke to Moses on MOUNT Sinai, saying: Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them: When you come into the land that I give you, the land shall observe a Sabbath rest for Hashem. For six years you may sow your field and for six years you may prune your vineyard; and you may gather in its crop. But the seventh year shall be a complete rest for the land, a Sabbath for HaShem; your field you shall not sow and your vineyard you shall not prune. The after growth of your harvest you shall not reap and the grapes you had set aside for yourself you shall not pick; it shall be a year of rest for the land. The Sabbath produce of the land shall be yours to eat, for you, for your slave, and for your maidservant; and for your laborer and for your resident who dwell with you. And for your animal and for the beast that is in your land shall all its crop be to eat.” (Leviticus 25:1-7) In this passage of TORAH, it is disclosed that the land that G-d has given to the Jewish People remains under HIS administrative AUTHORITY. In other words, the REVELATION is that what G-d GIVES REMAINS HIS. The question is, “How can one give something and yet retain OWNERSHIP?”

The EMET (truth) that ALL THINGS are under the OWNERSHIP of ECHAD is substantiated in the following passage found in TEHILLIM, it is written, “… HaShem’s is the earth and its fulness, the inhabited land and those who dwell in it.” (Psalm 24:1) In this DISCLOSURE, it is REVEALED that both POSSESSIONS and the POSSESSOR belongs to ECHAD. This MYSTERY is based upon the fundamental principle that ALL of CREATION is a MANIFESTATION of ECHAD. This principle is based upon the mechanic employed by ECHAD in CREATING, yea, He CREATED BY calling HIMSELF into EXISTENCE.

The human conscious experience is the IMAGE and LIKENESS of G-d. The process employed to CREATE the IMAGE and LIKENESS of G-d commenced by MAKING MAN A RECEIVER. G-d is not a RECEIVER, but rather ONE WHO BESTOWS. This EMET is based upon His OWNERSHIP of ALL THINGS. Thus the creation of the human conscious experience in the IMAGE and LIKENESS of G-d with the ATTRIBUTE of RECEIVING made this a NEW CREATION in ECHAD. As a NEW CREATION, the GOAL is to be LIKE THE CREATOR. To become like the CREATOR, MAN who is a RECEIVER must BECOME the BESTOWER. This possibility can only exist if both the BESTOWER and the RECEIVER are ONE.

It is from the PERSPECTIVE that the BESTOWER and the RECEIVER are ONE that ECHAD can give to the JEW LAND and it remains His POSSESSION. In other words, ECHAD gave the LAND to HIMSELF. The purpose of handling the POSSESSIONS of ECHAD in harmony with His INSTRUCTIONS is to AID in gaining the PERSPECTIVE of BEING ONE with G-d. First the ONENESS must BE REALIZED as a TRUTH of BEING, after which it is ACTUALIZED by refining the MIND with TORAH and KEEPING the MITZVOT. This is the process that has been PREDETERMINED BY ECHAD to AID in our ASCENSION from the CONSCIOUSNESS of RECEIVING to the CONSCIOUSNESS of the BESTOWER.
