Chelek 19, Ki Savo 02- Rabbi Ari Shishler

undoubtedly one of the most uncomfortable portions of the torah is that the rebuke that moishabain and gives the jewish people with all the warnings of what could happen to us if we don’t fulfill terror and mitzvos now we know that according to hasidis as bad as these rebukes and curses sound they actually embed within them these tremendous brokers from hashem and that’s what we really have to focus on it’s the great broker we’re going to see that now in rashi’s commentary right at the end of the touhou which seems to be one of the worst of the curses and as rasheed spells it out there’s a lot of detail and the detail seems to make it sound as bad as possibly could be and that’s exactly the point that means that it contains within it the greatness and the goodness of what could possibly be good and not only is this a declaration or an insight into brokers from hashem but it’s also an insight into how we come back after we may have gone off the path and lost our way spiritually the rebel says he’s explained many times of him that even though rashi’s primary objective is always to explain the simple understanding of of the verses the fact is that within embedded within his interpretation there is the wine the beauty the the richness of torah the secrets of terror as the al trevor would always say and that’s relevant to us because because this is the week of the alt-right’s birth on the week of the haftarah that says that your light should rise and dominate oyori as we know the balshantov said with regards to the to the ultra river’s birth at this time so what do you see within rashi the depth and secrets and mysticism of terror so when it comes to rash’s explanation of the these horrible warnings of what could happen to us embedded in rashi’s commentary is yana soltera maharaja says generally speaking rashi’s interpretation is filled with the depth and beauty of torah the secrets of terror it’s definitely the case in this context because the fiber but again as we know that although explains in a good tutorial that what is the real content of these curses this rebuke of the jewish people [Music] so the altar explains that even though outwardly they all appear to be the opposite of anything blessed in life says the truth is if you really want to know the truth they are only brokers not only do they also refer to brochures they are only brothers they’re fundamentally brokers which means batteries so what is the hidden message which means what is the soul what is the truth of all of these so-called curses the greatest brokers that his son went to get a broker from these great rabbis and it sounded like they weren’t broke processed at all and rabbi shimba yakai said no that these are really really broken sometimes the highest brokers are embedded in things that don’t sound like a look like brachus so that’s the parasha generally but what we’re going to find is the same theme in rashi rash is going to say words that sound as if he’s commenting on the tokugawa and embellishing how bad they are and then at the same time when you get the nusham of it he’s actually telling us how deeply powerful and positive this all is so shitty when you read rashi at the chat level he’s telling us in simple language how bad these things really are but once you look in the deeper lens the the wine of toyota within rashi then oyster lotion then you’ll discover that the same language that russia uses to highlight how severe these curses are is actually the same language that he’s using to illustrate how powerful the brock is embedded within the mod and we’re going to focus right at the end of the one specific possible assume i take sieve right one of the last curses goes that hashem is going to take you back to egypt in ships can you imagine telling the generation that escaped mitzrayim that they’re going back it’s like the worst kind of curse they’re going the same path that hashem says i promised you you’d never see that that path again you never see that root again and what will happen when you get there you will be sold there to your enemies la voda as slaves and maidservants so they’ll put you on the market to sell and nobody’s going to want to buy you pastas it’s quite logical to assume that if this is the very last passage in the series of so-called curses it must be one of the harshest of the lot because we know that the conclusion of a topic always rounds up the topics if this is at the end it’s got to be one of the harshest they not even move on so let’s ask ourselves the question doesn’t seem so obvious what’s so harsh about it what’s so bad okay so we’ll go back to my train that’s a horrible thing what’s so bad about the fact that nobody’s going to want to buy them as slaves it doesn’t sound so terrible rashes rashi explains barney spiro showbiz venus beshivia firstly explains our neos in hebrew means sphenoids which is actually in aramaic ships which are ships of captivity first emphasis they’ll be taken as captives avoiding they’ll come to mitzra i’m not as tourists as captives then worse than that valve when it says nobody’s going to want to buy them because of russia russia says they’re not going to want to buy the jews because khashoggi want to annihilate the jewish customer show supported me to very so that implies that rash is identifying two major issues that are part of this particular curse i left now you saw your volume number one that the status of the jews coming into mitram at this point will be as captives and secondly that khashwa will be terrible decrees against them which implies that the other words in the passage is the fact that it will be in ships but there is the fact that it will be back the route that hashem said you’ll never travel again is the fact that they’d be put on the slave market to their enemies and rock protein based apparently would sound like those are just details but the main thing is they’ll be captives and there’ll be a threat that hangs over their survival but actually if you really pay attention to what rashi says and you really pay attention to the language you’ll notice that mash medium we’re actually saying it’s not just two facts over here every detail in the passage compounds the harshness of this particular curse and therefore valdered if you pay attention to russia you’ll discover that from a deeper perspective then actually each phrase that’s used in the passage is there to compound the greatness and the broker that is actually um inco included in this particular curse okay so we’ve got to understand all of this and to understand it for you we have to ask ourselves firstly the question why is it such a big deal that the torah says that you’re going back the place the direction that hashem said you’d never go there says that hashem will take you back on that route that he said you would never see again what’s the difference why is that such a significant part of the curse and that seems to be a glaring question and it seems that rashi doesn’t answer the question so we’ll see that perhaps there is an attempt by the maforshim to explain it because foreign you got to pay attention to the fact that they’re being taken by ship as opposed to by foot and that implies that it’s it’s much more of a prison-like experience so first of all because hashem said that they’re never going to see that root again so first of all i’m referring point out look hashem promised they’re never going to go on that route again so therefore there’s no way they could go over land in order to get to mitra because the ship promised they’re not going to go that route again so that’s why it says that he’s going to take them barney on ships okay that’s another fortune one to explain it that does not fit what we’re looking for we’re looking for every word and phrase in the passage highlighting more of the harshness of the curse this just seems like a technical detail that she must keep his promise so he can’t take them back that route be very difficult to say that there is the full person that perspective according to chat which is rashi’s angle meaning giving so to speak curses and rebuke to the jewish people he doesn’t have to now tackle the technicality of how does it work if in fact they were not allowed to go down that route that’s a question for another time so in fact the terror didn’t have to address this at all didn’t even have to bring up the issue that you’re not supposed to go down the street could have ignored it completely because the main issue is they’re going to betray him as captives the fact that hashem had made a promise not to go back there surely is not part of the curse so surely we don’t need the explanation of why it has to be ships in the tower didn’t have to say ship so terry didn’t have to say that you don’t go this route and it didn’t have to say anything about ships so that’s not really a good enough question unless somehow the ships add to the captivity of it make it worse so let’s try another angle as it’s brought in the majors what’s the terror telling us you want to know how bad an average is this is how bad never is i call it that even though hashem had promised you’d never go down that route ever it’s possible that we could behave so badly that hashem will say that’s and i’m cancelling my promise so maybe that’s the point derek is adding to the captivity you know how bad it is it’s even beyond the fact that i shouldn’t promise you you’d never go there again you messed up so badly hashem says that’s and i’m canceling my promise to you maybe that’s the explanation but the rep is dissatisfied with their arms and it doesn’t give us absolute clarity why should they do it because if the torah wanted to teach me that principle which is if the torah wants to illustrate us that if a person does an aveira and especially if they do a serious aveira it could neutralize hashem’s promises of protection or broker or whatever it is you don’t have to wait till you get the worst of the worst things that could go wrong and especially when you get to their culmination all the way then and then say and that’s because you didn’t listen to they still went again he knew that hashem had promised him safety and security and broker and he said i don’t know maybe i did enough error and lost that opportunity and there’s no question about it that yaakov is certainly not in the category of the people we’re addressing over here in the so we don’t need such a radical story to teach us that hashem could renege on a promise because of our behavior let’s even assume that it is true and that the torah does want to illustrate us over here that sometimes people could behave so badly that hashem says that’s it i’m no longer doing what i promised to do why do we have to learn this specifically in the context of going to mitzrayim it could be anything that hashem says i promise you and then i’m going to cancel it if you don’t behave it goes without saying that it does not suit the chat to explain that even though hashem not only promised but he instructed us not to go back to mitzrayim look what happened look at this not only is hashem not keeping his promise because of our behavior but he’s actually making us transgress the prohibition against going back to mitzrayim because of our behavior wow that’s pretty bad so if you want to explain it that way why is that relevant to the that somehow our various also make us break other avails as well it’s not clear it doesn’t seem to make sense so we’re looking for something about the language either that you’re going back that same route or that you’re going in ships that highlights and emphasizes the captivity of it and we haven’t yet found it so to understand that let’s go to the ships you let’s have a look at what rashi said when he addressed the word aniois that you’re going to go on ships and he says what does it mean bespino is the first he translates it why do you have to translate it and then he adds beshiva that it’s in captivity now surely this is not the place that russia should insert the word captives surely that word should have belonged to the explanation of how will hashem take you back to mitzrayim as captives why is rashi emphasizing that the ships is bashivia what’s the connection should have spoken about the fact that you will be captives should have been under the heading that is taking people back to mitzrayim and not under the heading barney ice that it’s going to be in ships so there’s a beautiful explanation from the body artists what are we looking for we’re looking to highlight and emphasize more of the captivity remember that this is the end of the turk now we’re really ramping it up and saying it’s worse than you thought why is it worse than you thought because they’re going back in ships how does ships add to the intensity of the captivity would have been part of it because only they would have been in a position to walk all the way back to mitzrayim you showed him taffy no but the minute you’re loading people onto ships there’s nothing to stop you from loading men and women and even children that makes it worse so any ice makes the curse a harsher curse the only thing is having ashamed ashley should cause him shiva islam the fact that rashi just said shivya that they’re going into captivity without explaining why the ships tell us that they’re going into a harsher captivity move on that indicates i should have petersburg better clearly rashi does not think that the issue over here is wow look how bad it is even the children and the women are being schlepped along as slaves rashi seems more focused on the fact that they’re going to egypt by ship is in captivity so what’s rashi really trying to highlight for us over here just by simply saying that word captivity beerub was there explanation is footage russia wants to clarify a call i brought him and he’s going because of that every detail listed over here in this passage about this horrible re uh re um whatever you call it relocation back to me trying it’s not just one generic curse oh they’re going back to me trying and that’s terrible rashi’s perspective is that each additional detail that the prosecutor adds is an additional layer of of rebuking curse in itself has from rashi’s perspective then the fact that it tells us it’s by ship the fact that it tells us it’s the same route that they had previously been on that’s all by the hospit it’s all to add each element is to add another perspective another layer noise in addition to the fact that it’s a terrible thought of the jews going back to mitzrayim believes that the way to get to mitraim is in the most degrading way possible and that’s in two facts which snape brought him two points aleph barney is besieving firstly russia’s understanding what’s the terror telling us not only when they arrive in mitram will they then be captives but rashid says the torah wants us to know that even on the way to me trying they will be in ships treated like captives and that is going to be extremely painful and difficult much worse than if they were going over land to get to mitzrayim boyfriend everybody knows slave ships i’m sure you must have seen the the paintings or whatever of slave ships of the old days put everybody down under the deck cramped conditions no ventilation no proper food illness it’s far worse than traveling over land so as far as russia is concerned the fact that the terror tells us that they’re going in ships is in itself a highlighting of how bad this particular captivity is going to be parenthetically over here moving to the pier ptosis that’s exactly why rashid does not go with the attitude of the ptosis to say that it’s women and children also shall notice first of all according to there’s no reason why children cannot walk to my train but just take longer how did the jews get out of its time right could you show your butchers me trying how did they get out by foot but besides that if pirusham name so if you go with the approach of the body out it turns out that yeshiva that there’s nothing about being in the ship that is intrinsically bad it’s only where the ship is taking you the captivity but not that there’s something to being in a ship which is bad [Music] and if that’s true if the whole purpose of the passage by telling us ships is that we should know that it’s going to be men and women and children the toku could have done that much more simply by saying all of you call him why does he have to say ships so therefore rash is of the view that the ship experience itself is far worse than if people were laid in chains by foot all the way back to mitsurai secondly what makes it also worse that hashem says this is going to be the path i promised you you’d never go down again you know it’s going to take the same route they already used before in the opposite direction which is as the turret describes that it’s a horrible desert which is completely overwhelming it’s filled with dangerous creatures and a terrible parching thirst and of course you don’t have to be uh the smartest person in the room to realize that they won’t have the miracles that they experienced when they left mitra and they protected them from all of these things in fact that’s why i promise you’ll never go there again because we’re so terrible so that also ramps up how bad the curse is to have to go through that horrible place without the protection of russia doesn’t even have to explain that foreign just says he doesn’t have to explain what’s so bad about going to mitram because we know because we were there we played shaq still stomach but also here because rashi says and he’s told that this before hashem how do you make people fearful like the miragum did you tell them about things they already fear so how do you make the jews fear going in territory so they tell them that there’s amalek over there oh we know i’m like we’ve already dealt with them same thing over here you don’t have to expel explain and spell out what’s wrong with me trying we know we were there you don’t have to tell us what’s about about today’s we’re still in the desert when this conversation is happening and the midbar as the root are things that would strike fear in anybody’s hearts already so as far as russia is concerned every detail of this passage is adding layers of how bad this threat is not only will they go into slavery but the way they’re going to go into slavery is in the harshest way possible now that we’ve got that let’s look at what rashi says next about the passage how they’re going to be so to speak on the slave market when they get there nobody’s going to want to buy them what does rashi say russia says something fascinating it says you will seek to be sold to the muslims you’re wanted it’s not that others will take you and put you on the slave market commission but rather the curse is that the people will wish to sell themselves as slaves now that’s strange that doesn’t add up you just told me they’re captives now you’re telling me that they want to sell themselves captives don’t get that choice didn’t russia just tell us that they were going to be taken down to my time as captives so they’re not in a position to put themselves on the slave market the only way they’d land up on the slave market is they’d be sold by their capitals furthermore doesn’t make sense also what is the possibility without without identifying who the captors are or who the sellers are just kind of makes it generic you will be sold concludes that the end of the story is nobody wants to buy them because people would prefer khashoggi to be rid of them then it’s actually a moot point who was selling them that’s not the the focus over here the focus of me is nobody wants to buy them not who would like to sell them and our beer was there so what’s rashi trying to tell us as rashi has already shown us every bit of this pasuk is just layering how bad the experience of this particular um exile is going to be foreign therefore explains that the passage is not telling us who uh about the sale so to speak by the captives of the jews to become slaves shane’s attack because the truth is it’s not so surprising if you’re captives that’s what happens rashid once said it’s worse than that not only are they captives not only will they be on the slave market things are going to be so bad that people wish to be sold to somebody else that means that the people are going to be begging their captives rather sellers are slaves or even rather take us as slaves that tells you how bad it is if a person wants to be a slave how terrible must their life be saying and the terror doesn’t just say they want to be sold as slaves says they’re going to ask to be sold to their enemies how dire must their circumstances be that they wish to be sold to the enemies of spirit prepare now you get the flow of rashes who says next and nobody wants to buy them because all people want is hashem to be initially we would have thought listen it’s just a factual round off of the conversation they want to sell you and nobody wants to buy you right uh that what that means the heinous attempt that what happens people in such a dire state that they want to sell themselves even to their enemies so if nobody wanted to buy them okay it’s terrible so they are stuck in what they originally were stuck in this horrible environment that is so debilitating that they want to rather be sold i mean over here it’s not just telling us more information about what we already know it’s layering another layer of how difficult and horrible this particular rebuke curses which is not a direct continuum from wanting to sell yourselves rashi says it’s worse than that not only is it such a horrible state that they want to sell themselves and not only is it practically that nobody wants to buy them it’s the reason that people don’t want to buy them is they’d rather destroy them it’s the ultimate curse which would explain why it is the final blow of the entire expression of these terrible curses okay so that’s on the negative side on the negative side rashi has done a really good job of showing us it gets worse and then it gets worse and then it gets even worse but we do know that if you take the perspective of jaina soteria that really means that there’s broken opportunity and then greater broken opportunity and even greater broken opportunity s so we have to now discover because we already mentioned before that inside rashi’s wording we’re going to be able to unearth the great brokers and the great opportunities so let’s find them and we’ll find them by asking a generalized question why would hashem want us to go through all these difficulties what is he spiteful because he didn’t do what i said now i’m going to punish you lightning bolts the whole point of the rebuke and then the things that may actually happen as a result of the of the rebuke is to wake us up says that after all these terrible things happen to you then you will do two and you’ll return to shame that’s the reason that hashem sends us on these difficulties and that’s why when you reach the end of the that’s when you find the greatest clue to well what is the technical all about in this project that we’re analyzing now in this passage is where you’re going to find embedded the purpose and objective of all of the which is chuva and that elevates us obviously in a tremendous way so what’s so great about sugar chuva is not a reset button it’s not wiping the slate clean and now you are where you started originally shrive is a rebound that takes you higher than you ever were before maida sacha vehicle is the greatness of chuva is the transformation the transformative power of sugar that takes things that previously were demerits sins and turns them into merits which implies that a balcherva has certain credits that even a perfect sadiq will never have now we didn’t understand how that works so to understand the property you’ve got to dig deeper into the more premiums deeper spiritual understanding of a beautiful one of the classic things that we know from early on in tanya is that when a person doesn’t have effectively what they do is they take the potential sparks of holiness that should have been elevated out of an activity and you you literally enclose them and enslave them in the world of clipper so sparks of holiness are now trapped in the world of clipper because of a person’s choices then what happens when a person does trigger they extract those neutrals they were stuck in clipper even it searches that the person didn’t put in clipper was already there from before because a person entered a space they should never have gone into the space of pure of pure and ironic word of absolute clipper and you bring out the researches of conditions that were locked there that it said it could never go to because the tadic is never going to behave in that environment will only ever have the opportunity to elevate holy sparks that are in neutral territory empire of territory creepers nega things that are not absolute evil but a baal shiva steps into absolute evil hopefully inadvertently and then through triva brings that with him so he elevates something that previously had no connection to to holiness whatever sparks of holiness hashem decided to scatter into those parts of the world that are off limits for us as jewish people because they’re so dark and toxic so because those are the sparks that fell to the lowest dimension that is evidence that those sparks originated at the highest levels because we know very well that that’s how it operates now my name is that the original spiritual source of these sparks of holiness is far far greater than the original spiritual source of the sparks that fell into neutral territory we know very well that the principle says the higher something is at its point of origin the lower it falls when it must fall in so therefore when a person through the process of tishuma elevates those parts of the world those nitsatas of kedusha that fell into absolute cesspools that generates from on high a far greater divine revelation than when you just stay the course of doing what hashem wants happiness that’s the deeper meaning of when it says hashem will take you back to me that’s a summary of the whole purpose and objective of all of the shiv hashem bringing you back will we know that the whole point of tashev is to return so is linked to the word return which means that the reason hashem’s taking you down this journey is to get you to a point of doing real chuba verily and the details of that are actually lined up in the past first of all it says you’re going to be sold there and not just sold it but to your enemies to become their slaves that means save what it means is you’re going to go into the territory of your enemy what’s your enemy absolute clipper impurity that which is some distant far away from the source that’s where you’re going to go base validates and no one’s going to want to buy you except we’re going to totally re uh verbalize that word question as we know very famously it says in mazel israel the jewish people have no muzzle no fortune so to speak that you could read in the stars astrologically or i in israel i in which is the highest dimension of ellicott beyond anything that could be identified that is the mass of what trickles down into the experience of the jewish people that is our source of everything our source of life and broker etc likewise what’s going to happen because a person goes into the space of the enemy into dangerous territory and vegeta comes out of there through triva so the result of that is i am koine what does ayan konam mean because we know when we refer to hashem as queen the one who acquires us we’re talking about the level of eloy kus which is in the highest identifiable world atsilus and when we speak about iron we talk about a level that is beyond that citizens because even at cities we could talk about it we can describe it to a certain extent iron has no description whatsoev whatsoever so we’ll get i in to come into our reality the highest dimension of it of course how they shift because you did shiva out of the place of because when you acknowledge that we as jewish people are literally a piece of hashem living inside a human body yes it’d be ridiculous then to say so hashem allows a part of himself to enter into our world go through all the journeys and challenges of life which includes stepping into the wrong places occasionally and what’s the effect going to be so i’m going to get those new toyotas and those new soldiers will be elevated and that’s where it begins and ends so good for the real goal and purpose of this is that we as people will be so incredibly elevated through the experience as you know very well that the purpose of teshuva is not just to revolutionize the world that had previously been involved in impurity and is now elevated the goal of teshuva is that the practitioner the person should be altogether elevated [Music] explains that in detail about being sold and nobody wants to buy this foreign you wish to be sold as a slave what does that mean means you will become hashem’s servant that it’s something you want to do it’s not imposed on you the ultimate effort hashem is i want to be of service that’s totally distinct from the way you serve hashem as a child which is what sadiq him do asa compared to a child because it’s natural for a child to love and be dedicated to his parents it’s natural foot sideways to be dedicated has a very clear sense of godliness so he’s naturally magnetized and drawn towards ellicott and that’s enemies that loosen baby it has absolutely nothing to do with the tzadik’s efforts and everything to do with hashem’s revelation whereas my shaykh about trevor this is so beautiful to consider about when you assess a belgium from the outside what do you see a person who is very distant from god why does the baal trooper reconnect to hashem not because he’s had this great exposure this epiphany this miraculous moment of inspiration who loves godliness and is therefore naturally propelled in that direction in fact to be a balchu is the exact opposite it’s against the person’s nature instead about somebody who worked to change to learn how to be drawn telecast yes he says you want to be sold as as a servant this is the primary most important way to serve hashem like a servant who doesn’t do what the master says because he appreciates the greatness of the master in fact the servant would rather be doing something more leisurely but their servant is willing to give of himself and commit himself and sacrifice himself to do what the master wants that’s the ultimate there is now let’s look at the deeper meaning of herekillian which on the face of it is a terrible thing it means god forbid a genocide but if you look at it with the deeper lenses describing a very powerful elevated spiritual state that we as jews will and can achieve through uh what’s it like to live in this world you need to kill a few things if you want to live in this world you got to kill a few temptations and you have to be oriented to say i want to actually get higher than this world you’d see i mean i’m leaving the world but actually higher in this world close enough to pion and yearn for connection hashem at whatever cost even if that means i lose my identity and maybe even lose everything about this world hani shabazi matsuba in other words what russia’s alluding to is that even while a person lives as a normal human here on earth he could reach a point where he feels the same kind of spiritual rush that the neshama feels when it leaves the body and we actually have an illusion to the end of the fifth paragraph the missionary says when a person reaches the age of a hundred it’s as if they have died and they’re completely removed and so to speak irrelevant in the world what does it mean according to hasidis when a person reaches the level represented by the age of 100 it’s not an age according to the passport rather i know that it means a person has achieved a hundred different spiritual levels which means that this person has worked through all the ten facets of their soul and as each one of the ten is comprised of ten as i over a bottle minnow illuminate that person is immune from the world that person is completely beyond the reach of the temptations of the hero now um so that means that this is a person who could experience a vision of hashem that’s normally reserved only for a person who is no longer living because nobody can see hashem and live this person is not alive in the classical sense and it came in shall kill him because this person is considered completely so to speak removed from the world he could already now as a living human see things reserved only for the neshama so that’s herik vakilian so how does rashford interpret the whole apostle claire shiva what’s the story of where does trivia happen in the place of your enemies in the place of your enemies you want to sell yourself as hashem slaver in queen and you get in touch with the level of iron that is completely beyond everything else that reaches down to connect you and what happens then herrick the killing you kill the temptations of this world and you aspire to get beyond the world to the state of spiritual death sort of well physical death spiritual awareness takes it to a whole different level so far we’ve said that everything described in this rebuking curse is actually all broker just in disguise but now the rebels going to say not only is the which is the response from hashem when we’ve done wrong not only is that part of the great plan of elevation but so are the things that led us to the tehran in other words our misbehavior is also part of the plan this is a revolutionary piece of the sikh beautiful perspective because we chose badly and we chose to do things against hashem once with our hashem leads us on to do and our vedas so that we could do trivia like the gomorrah says about america and about the jews and the iglaz of that we’re not suited it’s not within our our gamut that we should do these things why does it happen in order that we should be able to achieve higher and greater things that’s alluded to in the past what does hashem say i’ll take you back to the path i told you not to go on i’m gonna take you where i told you not to go even when a jew goes down a path of that which hashem said don’t go there it is forbidden foreign hashem says when a person goes down that path by their own choice is orchestrated also from high bar hashem hashem wants you to go there so that you’ll be challenged so that you can achieve trouble which will take you far higher than you could ever have gone if you were just on the straight and narrow masterpiece russia alludes to that when he says that they are going to go in ships which means in captivity what’s rashi telling us when a jew goes where a jew should not go when a jew does what a jew should not do it’s actually a form of captivity it’s actually hashem nudging the person in that direction to facilitate the opportunity to do tremor and lastly that will explain where rashi felt the need to translate a word that we actually know now we understand why rashi translates the word onios to sphinois pierce davis to know is that when you go from the perspective of yanushaltera which russia is doing on this then it’s important for us not only to know that they go in ships but to know that ships are also called sphenoids what does that mean of the captivity story what is a ship for to protect passengers as they transit across water and they play a similar role in spiritual terms comes down into this world into the tempestuous waters of this world the great challenges of living here this is protection not to drown how do you get protection because the ships as described in various places and kasidas represent the vehicle the vessels that take us through the turbulence of this world like the famous boyalateva obviously of that the tava represents the words of torah that’s what navigates us through the stormy waters of life and in that’s itself the two levels of madregas alef onion which would represent the path of the tsar he’s on on the ice on ships that are still in the realm of holiness doing torah mitzvahs navigating the world through the world of through the the lens of holiness or you can get based as they are in the translation into aramaic which is not as holy a language which means that a person has stepped out of the the environment of holiness into the environment of translation shall she be you’ve stepped into the world of the nations she asked the volume to have communication and we’re supposed to be in that world in order to transform them into holiness and that is navigating the sea through the vessel of teshuva that turns the negative into positive um because the entire topic over here is the topic of how do you tackle that which happened because you did what was wrong so you now you want to navigate your way back you want to reach the huge elevation of the shiva for that you cannot just have the ships of holiness you need the ships of touching the unholy the ship of triva so may it actually come to fruition that because we’re learning not just the but the deeper meaning behind it that should reveal those deeper hidden brokers into revealed goodness every one of us should be able to see the most clear brothers from hashem in all the major areas of life and all of the real curses should be redirected at our enemies until we have the ultimate broker the coming of mashiach right now
