The Power Of I Am: Getting Ready for Shavuot [10 Mins]

The Zohar teaches that the written Torah correlates to the name YHVH, the oral Torah to Elokim…when Israel heard “I is YHVH your Elohecka the study of Torah was established in their hearts. In other words, that they knew from “I is YHVH your Elohecka” the Oral Torah just as it will be in the future “No longer will each person teach his neighbors or his relatives saying, ‘Know the LORD.’ (Jeremiah 31:33) All of them, from the least important to the most important, will know me,” declares the LORD.” In the utterance “I is YHVH” is the entire Torah. All the 613 commandments are referred to in the Zohar as 613 pieces of advice how to infuse “I is” into the heart and enlighten it. ~Rabbi Tzadok HaCohen of Lublin, Pri Zadik 8
