The High Priest's Private Quarters: Parsha Matot-Massei

The Torah prohibits constructing the Temple with wood; only stone and brick are admissible. Yet the high priest's chamber, located in the Temple proper, was made of wood. This class will present an analysis of the subject from both halachic and spiritual viewpoints. (Likutei Sichos vol 28, Parshas Massei)

Good Morning, Rabbi New
I appreciate how you decipher the construct word "understanding" and place it into different hierarchical levels of wisdom and creativity. Presently, I am studying the Rambam's chapter a day and correlating it to the Torah which is bringing me into a deeper understanding of it's truth. The nature of our L-ORD is not easily understood or can be put into words or explained. Hence, we have numbers; why? All numbers come out of the number 1. 0 represent eternal and number placement. Subtracting numbers eventually brings you back to the number 1 - The "Shema." 0 being Ein Sof the "Endless One." Arius/Arios reiterated what already is, "One G-d," which we cannot numerically reject. No new knowledge.

Thank You,???? Reply
