Pinchas: Chapter 81

What is 'Yesh'- Chochmah


We learn that those people are happy who, in the last exile, make a great effort to know the Shechinah, to suffer for her and to keep the precepts. We are told that Yesh is Chochmah, substance out of nothing, that is drawn from Keter; this means that those who love God will inherit wisdom.

[Verse 507] Rabbi Shimon tells Rabbi Yehuda that God brings true craftsmanship out of chaos, that has no substance at all, and His creation is perfected properly, in actuality, and He never again has to change it.
