Pinchas: Chapter 19

Three partners: The Holy One, Blessed Be He, one's father and one's mother


We learn how many partners are responsible for creating and sustaining a person, including God and His Shechinah, one's mother and father, the angels, the sun and moon, the living creatures, the trees and the seed of the earth. At the time of the redemption all will come together and rejoice.


The body and soul of man are cleansed, healed and redeemed through this powerful passage that explicates upon the creation of a man and the Final Redemption. Healing begins with our eyes, bones, sinews, brain, flesh, and skin.

Our supernal parents; the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and the Matriarchs Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel, and Leah; along with our own parents if they dwell in the world beyond, come forth at the behest of the Creator to commence the ultimate rejoicing. This rejoicing is the Final Redemption; and as the Zohar states, there is no rejoicing like that of the Redemption.

The Light that will resurrect the dead and summon the souls from Eden to animate the risen bodies shines forth as we visually embrace these verses. And because all of this is ignited by the Zohar, the process is quick, merciful, and pleasant.
