761. It is said ABOUT MALCHUT: "a burnt offering to Hashem" (Bemidbar 28:11), "an offering to Hashem" (Vayikra 27:9), "a sacrifice made by fire to Hashem" (Bemidbar 28:6), and it is said: "My offering, the provision of My sacrifices made by fire" (Ibid. 2). And has it not already been written: Sacrifices must be offered to none other than Hashem? What, therefore, is the meaning of "My offering, the provision of My sacrifices made by (also: 'to') fire"? HE ANSWERS, one who offers a gift does so by custom for the king, and the king distributes it to whomever he pleases. Yisrael, likewise, offers the Torah, WHICH IS MALCHUT, to the Holy One, blessed be He, that is His bread and His wine and His meat. And it is said about it, ABOUT THE TORAH, WHICH IS MALCHUT, "bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh" (Beresheet 2:23). And this is holy flesh, about which the head of the Yeshivah taught: We are talking about flesh that descends from heaven.
