Vayikra: Chapter 61

A flame under the wings of the cock


We learn that the Torah is understood more clearly at night because the Oral Torah is the secret of Malchut called night. The rooster crows at midnight because he is awakened by the flame of Gvurah and needs to awaken the world to chant the Torah. When day breaks, God puts a thread of grace on those who studied Torah in the night so that they are saved from everything. We learn that any verse that mentions "my maker" is referring to the Holy One, blessed be He.
