Lech Lecha: Chapter 2
Upon what the world exists

The Zohar discusses our ignorance concerning the pillars that sustain our world, the unseen spiritual forces that give rise to all existence. The Zohar then focuses on another concept concerning the power of midnight. Great importance is attached to spiritual study and work during the hours from midnight to sunrise, when the Light of the Creator is intensified in our physical realm.


The increased spiritual power released into the cosmos during the hours between midnight and dawn is made available to us by the scanning the Aramaic words and studying the wisdom that comprise this portion.
