Pinchas: Chapter 109

The four passages in the Tefilin and the reading of Sh'ma


After a description of the four sections of the Tefilin we hear that the prayer, the Sh'ma, is the crown on the head of Zeir Anpin, because Sandalphon ties all the prayers together and makes them into a crown. The assertion is made that the Shechinah is God's tabernacle, His table, His candelabra, His ark and His altar.
