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 our ATTENTION on the TITLE of the PARASHAT. The title of the PARASHAT is TETZAVEH. The IVRI transliteration TETZAVEH may be interpreted as SHALL COMMAND. TETZAVEH begins with instructions concerning the LIGHTING of the LAMP in the TENT of MEETING. It is written, “And you shall command the children of Israel that they shall bring to you olive oil that is clear, crushed for illumination to light a lamp continually in the TENT of MEETING outside the PARTITION curtain that is before the TESTIMONIAL TABLETS, arrange it shall AARON and his sons from evening until morning before HASHEM a decree that is eternal for their generations, for the Children of Israel.” (Exodus 27:20,21) In this passage contained within TORAH, it is disclosed that the LAMP of the TENT of MEETING is to be lit ETERNALLY by all GENERATIONS. It would seem as though HASHEM was giving a COMMAND that would be impossible for BENEI YISRAEL to keep, in that the TENT of MEETING, as we know it, does not EXIST. This thought is INCONSISTENT with the REVELATION of HASHEM’S quality of OMNISCIENCE, yea, it is written, “You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought from afar. You encompass my path and my repose. You are familiar with all my ways.” (Psalm 139:2-4) This revelation of HASHEM’S QUALITY of being ALL KNOWING, that is, OMNISCIENT, discloses that not only is He familiar with all of our ways, but that He also ORCHESTRATED THEM. In other words, HASHEM knew that a SEASON would come where the TENT of MEETING would not exist as revealed in the TEXT, but also that He orchestrated the CHANGE. Yet with the ORCHESTRATION of the CHANGE, He still COMMANDS the LAMP to be LIT continually.

To fulfill this COMMAND requires a REDEFINITION that gives rise to PERFECTION, yea, we are destined to EVOLVE in the EARTHEN REALM. A TIME has been predetermined by HASHEM when the EARTH shall be filled with His glory. The glory may be described as the VISIBLE MANIFESTATION of His QUALITIES that are CONCEALED within. The NAVI MALACHI foreseen the event of a REDEFINITION and wrote the FOLLOWING, “Behold, I am sending My messenger, and he will clear a path before Me; suddenly the Lord Whom you seek will come to His Sanctuary, and the messenger of the covenant for whom you yearn, behold, he comes, says HASHEM, Master of Legions… He will sit smelting and purifying silver; he will purify the children of LEVI and refine them like gold and like silver, and they will be for HASHEM presenters of offering in righteousness.” In this passage of NEVIIM, it is revealed that a MESSENGER will come who will INSTRUCT LEVI in ways of presenting offerings that give rise to the MANIFESTATION of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

The MANIFESTATION of RIGHTEOUSNESS in the Jewish People is the result of LIGHTING the LAMPS of ILLUMINATION CONCEALED within the HUMAN CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE. The HUMAN CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE is the product of COMBINING the FINITE with the INFINITE, yea, when HASHEM blew into the DUST, SOUL, what He did is married HIMSELF to the PHYSICAL BODY. LIKE the TABERNACLE, the PHYSICAL BODY contains an INDIVIDUALIZED ASPECT of HASHEM, sometimes referred to as a DIVINE SPARK. When the SOUL enters into the PHYSICAL body, it is clothed with a GARMENT (LAVUSH) that CONCEALS the SUPERNAL QUALITIES. Those SUPERNAL QUALITIES are the LIGHT of the SEFEROT. Thus it is the UNCOVERING of these SUPERNAL LIGHTS that must be done continually, that RIGHTEOUSNESS MIGHT BE REVEALED. It is the INSTRUCTIONS received from the MESSENGER of the BRIT (covenant) given to the COHANIM that will engender the performance of the COMMAND and the EVOLUTION of MAN.
