THEMES of Featured Zohar Articles

Going Up In Smoke
The Elevation offering was brought to uplift humankind.
The Zohar explains that the world's negative spiritual energies are consumed via the conflagration on the Altar. While the spiritual role of the priests are exclusively to bring loving-kindness into the world, their part in this burning of the forces of evil is necessary for the manifestation of a more peaceful, gentle world.
Consuming Fire of Loving-kindness
The Zohar teaches that the judgmental forces are torched on the Altar.
The priest, from the side of chesed, set up the fire on the Altar and make it flare up in the early morning each day, the time the side of chesed reigns in the world. This perfumes the world and the judgments will be subjugated and will not awaken.
