We continue on the study of Beha’alotcha where we left off last year.
Please read about the curse of Rabbi Shimon in DZ 1532 before this study.
“תּוֹרַת אֱמֶת הָיְתָה בְּפִיהוּ”
“The law (Torah) of truth was in his mouth”
“תּוֹרַת יְהוָה תְּמִימָה, מְשִׁיבַת נָפֶשׁ; עֵדוּת יְהוָה נֶאֱמָנָה, מַחְכִּימַת פֶּתִי”
“The instructions of YHVH are correct. They make the heart rejoice. The command of YHVH is radiant. It makes the eyes shine.”
The Zohar explains that the Torah has many descriptions to show that every word in the Torah conceals secrets of the upper levels. All the elements in the Torah stories represent spiritual forces.
Most of the world reads the Bible from a translation that corrupts the meaning of the sacred Hebrew. It limits the Torah stories to the understanding and words of the translators. It is also true for many Hebrew readers. Even for many Kabbalah students it is hard to believe that scanning or reading Zohar without understanding could benefit them.
The Zohar itself is the ultimate Torah study and it brings many Torah secrets to the surface while concealing many others. Those who follow the Daily Zohar study for a while see the secrets revealed in front of them. They gradually gain greater insight into the Zohar and the deeper meanings of the Torah text.
It’s no wonder that Rabbi Shimon cursed most of the world population. If they made connection to the original Bible text with a simple understanding that there are deeper levels and meanings, the world would have been flooded with great Light.

Now how many of those are cursed?
