THEMES of Featured Zohar Articles

First In, First Served
The Zohar teaches that the offering of First Fruits unites the spiritual with the physical.
When one brings first fruits to the Temple, he makes a statement mentioning the fact that Laban wanted to destroy Jacob, thereby obliterating the vehicle for the Divine to manifest through mankind.

But G-d saved Jacob and adorned him with 12 sons, eventually to become the spiritual source from which branch the 600,000 souls of Jews that left Egypt.
Teshuva and the Final Solution
G-d alone has the power to judge the Jewish nation.
When G-d comes to judge Israel, He is filled with mercy on their behalf because He is like a father who feels merciful towards his children. Thus no sins remain to be given to the authority of strict judgment.
