Pekudei: Chapter 62

"the End of all Flesh"


Rabbi Shimon explains to Rabbi Elazar about "the End of all Flesh." He talks about the sacrifice on the altar where the priest, the Levites and the children of Yisrael officiate respectively through their service, their singing and their prayers. Before the offering people should confess all their sins and transgressions and also the evil thoughts they had. The offerings awaken the Holy Spirit so that the three Columns Right, Left and Central are joined and raised up to the illumination of Chochmah and then upwards to infinity.
