Ha'azinu: Chapter 38
The nose of Zeir Anpin
Synopsis

Rabbi Shimon tells us the difference between the nose of Atika Kadisha and the nose of Zeir Anpin. We learn that the nose of Zeir Anpin is of anger and judgment, yet that the judgment is mitigated by the sweet savor of the burnt offerings given by the children of Yisrael. The nose of Atika Kadisha is long-suffering, and it holds back the judgments of the short nose of Zeir Anpin.
