Pinchas: Chapter 90

Olive-size and egg-size


Moses tells the esoteric meaning of the amount of the crumbs, and he asks God and the Shechinah to give everyone perfect food for the correction of the World to Come. Next the Faithful Shepherd engages in a dialogue with Great-grandfather, upper Chochmah, who descends to him and talks about who is the host and who the guest that break the bread and distribute it and bless it. Rabbi Shimon and the other friends join the discussion and bring up the topic of levirate marriage and reincarnation. The Faithful Shepherd invites all those present to gather round for the banquet of the King, and while talking about the breaking of the bread into an egg-size and an olive-size he explains the secret and importance of 'amen'.
