Toldot: Chapter 13
"And Abimelech charged"

We learn how the actions and conduct of the righteous people, such as the Patriarch Yitzchak, help to build and strengthen our physical dimension of Malchut. These acts of the righteous are mirrored in our own spiritually significant actions, as in the laying of Tfilin and the donning of Tzitzit.


By drawing on the metaphysical power of righteous personages such as Isaac, and also on the spiritual forces released by laying Tfilin and wearing Tzitzit, we build and strengthen our souls. In this way, we ensure that our sojourn in this physical existence will be filled with spiritual growth and enlightenment.
