Acharei Mot: Chapter 16

"And behold a well in the field"


Rabbi Elazar talks about "the well that the princes dug out," saying that the well is filled with blessings from Netzach, Hod and Yesod; the well sustains everyone above and below. The great stone that was rolled over the well's mouth refers to harsh judgment, which is removed when the blessings flow through the Sfirot. In a similar way, God poured blessings on the generation of Rabbi Shimon.
