Pekudei: Chapter 24

"The Mountain of Hashem's house shall be established on top of the mountains"


Rabbi Yosi explains that 'the end of days' refers to the time when God will visit the daughter of Jacob and raise her up from the dust, and the sun will be united with the moon. 'The mountain of Hashem's house' refers to the higher Jerusalem that will shine with the supernal light of Zeir Anpin, and it will be seven times brighter than before. He tells us that 'the light of the sun' is Zeir Anpin and 'the light of the moon' is Malchut. The 'top' of the mountains refers to the High Priest, Chesed, and 'the mountains' are Chesed, Gvurah and Tiferet. Rabbi Yosi reveals the inner meaning of "and they made the tunics of fine linen (shesh)...and the mitre of fine linen (shesh), and goodly turbans of fine linen (shesh)." When the priest awakens below in the Tabernacle, when he spreads his hands over the congregation and the candles are burning, a priest also awakens above. At the end of times God will depose all the chieftains in charge over the other nations; then only He shall be exalted. Lastly Rabbi Yosi speaks of the secret of six.
