Zer Zahav: Vaeira
The 29th of Tevet is the Yahrtzeit of Rabbi Noah Shmuel Lipshitz, author of Zer Zahav. He died on January 2, 1832. “I appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” When God appeared to each of the patriarchs, He placed His Name on their descendents. Each Jew has God’s Name inscribed on his body, and his hand with Tefillin and on his home with Mezuzah.
One with understanding will appreciate my words, and why I only hint at the deeper message.
