Vayikra: Chapter 52

"I will save you from afar"


Rabbi Chiya talks about the possible meanings of "from afar." Rabbi Shimon explains that Zeir Anpin rises high up to Chochmah and pours the abundance down from afar. He says that Zeir Anpin will eventually return and descend to rejoin the Congregation of Yisrael so that none need be afraid of Isaac, the Left Column, or judgments. Just so God saved Rabbi Chiya and Rabbi Yosi by giving them the cave to be safe in.
