Transferring the Precious Stones is a Metaphor for the self-sacrifice shown by Reb Yitzchak, the father of the Great Rabbi Rashi. Reb Yitzchak was willing to drown to avoid his precious Pearl from being used for Idol Worship. By using the “Jester” Archetype that he had inherited from his forefather, King David, the grandchildren of Reb Yitzchak, who were the grandchildren of Rashi, upon fleeing the Pogroms of France in the 13th century, adopted the name Margolioth, meaning “pearl” (or “Margolioth” in Hebrew”). They were primarily the descendants of Rashi and Rebbeinu Tam. Later Meir, Yitzchak Ber and Arye Leib Margolioth became more than prominent disciples of the Baal Shem Tov, since the families were also close personally. My Great-grandmother Sarah Margolioth/Harris arrived in Cape Town in 1901 from Lodz, Poland. The “Precious Stone” or pearl is explained by the Alter Rebbe in a Sichos Yud-Tes Kislev (Vol. 32) as being the “Inner Secret” of the Crown of the King that He is prepared to crush and add to Pure Water (like the Red Heifer) so that even a drop has the power to heal the ailing king`s child.

Stephen-Hawking-Black-Hole-Ramchal-Ecclesiastics-7:24-“Deep-Deep-who can find it?”

Stephen Hawking, Lucasian Chair of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, a position once held by Isaac Newton died this week at 76 years. Famed as the most prestigious physicist of the modern era, he suffered from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis since his early 20`s. Despite his total incapacity limiting him to a motorized wheelchair and voice-synthesizer, Hawking made seminal contributions to astrophysics, particularly in the study of black holes, veritable holes in the fabric of the universe.

The Black -holes correspond to the “Tzimtzum Ha`Rishon” (the “Initial Contraction”) by which the Infinite Creator chose to create the universe via an apparent contraction in which “He removed Himself”, thereby creating a momentary vacuum into which subsequent creation could occur. Under the laws of quantum mechanics, the black hole would slowly radiate energy back into space, before eventually evaporating. Together with physicist Roger Penrose, Hawking’s work cemented the case for a fiery Big Bang starting the universe.
This corresponds to Hawking`s concept of an entropic hole with absent space and Infinite mass from which energy would subsequently radiate an energy which was beyond the measurement of current technology.
Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, an 18th century Kabbalistic genius (known by his pseudonym “Ramchal” published a little-known work entitled “Dwellings of the Supreme” (Translated from the Hebrew text “Mishkney Elyon”). Central to his theme of creation was that all worlds derive from a point in heavenly “metaspace”. According to the Ramchal, the Creator`s Wisdom is preceded by another Beginning, referred to as His “Desire”, which is totally concealed, conceivably corresponding to Hawking`s Black-Hole discovery.

The Magical Symbolic meaning of the Hebrew Alphabet: How it pertains to Exile and Redemption

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

The significance of leaving Mitzraim, while historically corresponding to the “Exit of Egypt”, has become incorporated as an Archetypal Template to remind us (through the repetition of the Passover narrative to remind us that G-d Hears our pleas of entrapment and opens the channels to free us. The initial Exile was the sin caused by the Archetypal Reptile (תנינא). The source of the current exile is loshon Hara, (the פ, meaning the mouth). Expanding our consciousness immunizes us against the prejudice of “evil-talk”. G-d Hears our distress when we repent. Our pleas are carried by our Righteous Leaders to the Divine Name of ס’ג (Sag).
