+ 460 The Message

For centuries, scholars have been debating the two main possibilities for the origin and meaning of life. Some aspire to a higher philosophical dimension, which they can't find in the theory of evolution, while others dismiss as irrational any reference to an almighty god.

But what if another theory, one both rational and with philosophical depth, were to be available?

This is what the “Message” proposes: Thousands of years ago, scientists from another planet came to Earth and created all forms of life, including human beings, whom they created in their own image. References to these scientists and their work can be found in the ancient texts of many cultures. Due to their highly advanced technology, they were considered as gods by our primitive ancestors and often referred to as 'Elohim' which in ancient Hebrew meant 'Those who came from the sky'.

Despite being a plural word, Elohim was mistranslated over time to the singular 'God' reference that appears in modern-day Bibles.

Nevertheless, these people who came from the sky (the Elohim) educated humanity through the ages with the help of various messengers (also called prophets) with whom they had made contact. Each messenger was given a message suitable for the level of understanding prevailing at the time, with the primary purpose of instilling basic principles of non-violence and respect. Once humanity reached a sufficient level of scientific understanding, the Elohim decided to make themselves more visible in UFO sightings and to conceive their final message. Rael was given two missions: spreading that last message on Earth and preparing an embassy to welcome the return of our creators.

The atheist 'Intelligent Design Theory' offers a rational solution to the age-old debate between God-believers and evolutionists. It’s compatible not only with today's scientific discoveries but also with the ancient historical accounts of all cultures.

+ 430 The popular medical formulation of morality that goes back to Ariston of Chios, "virtue is the health of the soul," would have to be changed to become useful, at least to read: "your virtue is the health of your soul." For there is no health as such, and all attempts to define a thing that way have been wretched failures. Even the determination of what is healthy for your body depends on your goal, your horizon, your energies, your impulses, your errors, and above all on the ideals and phantasms of your soul. Thus there are innumerable healths of the body; and the more we allow the unique and incomparable to raise its head again, and the more we abjure the dogma of the "equality of men," the more must the concept of a normal health, along with a normal diet and the normal course of an illness, be abandoned by medical men. Only then would the time have come to reflect on the health and illness of the soul, and to find the peculiar virtue of each man in the health of his soul. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, § 120 “Health of the Soul”

+ 190 And Abram went, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he left Haran. Bereshit 12:4


+ 196 And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had acquired, and the souls they had acquired in Haran, and they went to go to the land of Canaan, and they came to the land of Canaan. Bereshit 12:5


+ 187 And Abram passed through the land, until the place of Shechem, until the plain of Moreh, and the Canaanites were then in the land. Bereshit 12:6


+ 178 And the Lord appeared to Abram, and He said, To your seed I will give this land, and there he built an altar to the Lord, Who had appeared to him. Bereshit 12:7


+ 196 And he moved from there to the mountain, east of Beth el, and he pitched his tent; Beth el was to the west and Ai was to the east, and there he built an altar to the Lord, and he called in the name of the Lord. Bereshit 12:8


+ 155 And Abram traveled, continually traveling southward. Bereshit 12:9


+ 200 And there was a famine in the land, and Abram descended to Egypt to sojourn there because the famine was severe in the land. Bereshit 12:10


+ 185 Now it came to pass when he drew near to come to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now I know that you are a woman of fair appearance. Bereshit 12:11


+ 179 And it will come to pass when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, This is his wife, and they will slay me and let you live. Bereshit 12:12


+ 196 Please say that you are my sister, in order that it go well with me because of you, and that my soul may live because of you. Bereshit 12:13


+ 170 And it came to pass when Abram came to Egypt, that the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very pretty. Bereshit 12:14


+ 177 And Pharaoh's princes saw her, and they praised her to Pharaoh, and the woman was taken to the house of Pharaoh. Bereshit 12:15


+ 207 And he benefited Abram for her sake, and he had flocks and cattle and he donkeys and men servants and maid servants, and she donkeys and camels. Bereshit 12:16


+ 193 And the Lord plagued Pharaoh with great plagues as well as his household, on account of Sarai, Abram's wife. Bereshit 12:17


+ 196 And Pharaoh summoned Abram, and he said, What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? Bereshit 12:18


+ 184 Why did you say, She is my sister, so that I took her to myself for a wife? And now, here is your wife; take her and go. Bereshit 12:19


+ 173 And Pharaoh commanded men on his behalf, and they escorted him and his wife and all that was his. Bereshit 12:20


+ 193 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain, and he pitched his tents until Sodom. Bereshit 13:12


+ 186 And they took Lot and his possessions, the son of Abram's brother, and they departed, and he was living in Sodom. Bereshit 14:12


+ 187 Now the sun was ready to set, and a deep sleep fell upon Abram, and behold, a fright, a great darkness was falling upon him. Bereshit 15:12


+ 187 And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone's hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell. Bereshit 16:12


+ 220 And at the age of eight days, every male shall be circumcised to you throughout your generations, one that is born in the house, or one that is purchased with money, from any foreigner, who is not of your seed. Bereshit 17:12


+ 184 And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I have become worn out, will I have smooth flesh? And also, my master is old. Bereshit 18:12


+ 177 And the men said to Lot, Whom else do you have here? A son-in-law, your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, take out of the place. Bereshit 19:12


+ 194 And also, indeed, she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife. Bereshit 20:12


+ 217 And God said to Abraham, Be not displeased concerning the lad and concerning your handmaid; whatever Sarah tells you, hearken to her voice, for in Isaac will be called your seed. Bereshit 21:12


+ 183 And he said, Do not stretch forth your hand to the lad, nor do the slightest thing to him, for now I know that you are a God fearing man, and you did not withhold your son, your only one, from Me. Bereshit 22:12


+ 165 And Abraham prostrated himself before the people of the land. Bereshit 23:12


+ 204 And he said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, please cause to happen to me today, and perform loving kindness with my master, Abraham. Bereshit 24:12


+ 194 Now these are the generations of Ishmael the son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian, the maidservant of Sarah, bore to Abraham. Bereshit 25:12


+ 183 And Isaac sowed in that land, and he found in that year a hundred fold, and the Lord blessed him. Bereshit 26:12


+ 190 Perhaps my father will touch me, and I will appear to him as a deceiver, and I will bring upon myself a curse and not a blessing. Bereshit 27:12


+ 188 And he dreamed, and behold! a ladder set up on the ground and its top reached to heaven; and behold, angels of God were ascending and descending upon it. Bereshit 28:12


+ 187 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's kinsman and that he was Rebecca's son, and she ran and told her father. Bereshit 29:12


+ 187 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:12


+ 209 And he said, Now lift your eyes and see that all the he goats mounting the animals are ringed, speckled, and striped, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. Bereshit 31:12


+ 150 Now deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him, lest he come and strike me, and strike a mother with children. Bereshit 32:12


+ 160 Thereupon, he said, Travel and we will go, and I will go alongside you. Bereshit 33:12


+ 151 Impose upon me a large marriage settlement and gifts, and I will give as much as you ask of me, but give me the girl for a wife." Bereshit 34:12


+ 191 And the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give to you and to your seed after you will I give the land." Bereshit 35:12


+ 148 And Timna was a concubine to Eliphaz, son of Esau, and she bore to Eliphaz, Amalek. These are the sons of Adah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:12


+ 152 And his brothers went to pasture their father's flocks in Shechem. Bereshit 37:12


+ 188 Many days passed, and Shua's daughter, Judah's wife, died; and Judah was consoled, and he went up to watch over his sheepshearers he and Hirah, his Adullamite friend to Timnah. Bereshit 38:12


+ 157 So she grabbed him by his garment, saying, Lie with me! But he left his garment in her hand and fled and went outside. Bereshit 39:12


+ 145 And Joseph said to him, This is its meaning: the three tendrils are three days. Bereshit 40:12


+ 132 And there with us was a Hebrew lad, a slave of the chief slaughterer, and we told him, and he interpreted our dreams for us; for each of us, he interpreted according to his dream. Bereshit 41:12


+ 144 But he said to them, No! But you have come to see the nakedness of the land. Bereshit 42:12


+ 164 And take double the money in your hands, and the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks you shall return in your hands, perhaps it was an error. Bereshit 43:12


+ 168 He searched; he started with the eldest and finished with the youngest, and the goblet was found in Benjamin's sack. Bereshit 44:12


+ 163 And behold, your eyes see, as well as the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth speaking to you. Bereshit 45:12


+ 171 And the sons of Judah were Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah. Now Er and Onan had died in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul. Bereshit 46:12


+ 155 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12


+ 170 And Joseph took them out from upon his Jacob's knees, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 48:12


+ 129 He is red eyed from wine and white toothed from milk. Bereshit 49:12


+ 127 And his sons did to him just as he had commanded them. Bereshit 50:12


+ 208 But as much as they would afflict them, so did they multiply and so did they gain strength, and they were disgusted because of the children of Israel. Shemot 1:12


+ 167 He turned this way and that way, and he saw that there was no man; so he struck the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. Shemot 2:12


+ 149 And He said, For I will be with you, and this is the sign for you that it was I Who sent you. When you take the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain. Shemot 3:12


+ 147 So now, go! I will be with your mouth, and I will instruct you what you shall speak. Shemot 4:12


+ 128 So the people scattered throughout the entire land of Egypt, to gather a gleaning for stubble. Shemot 5:12


+ 179 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 146 Each one of them cast down his staff, and they became serpents; but Aaron's staff swallowed their staffs. Shemot 7:12


+ 157 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and it shall become lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:12


+ 153 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord spoke to Moses. Shemot 9:12


+ 171 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, and they will ascend over the land of Egypt, and they will eat all the vegetation of the earth, all that the hail has left over. Shemot 10:12


+ 120 The Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, Shemot 12:1


+ 119 This month shall be to you the head of the months; to you it shall be the first of the months of the year. Shemot 12:2


+ 153 Speak to the entire community of Israel, saying, On the tenth of this month, let each one take a lamb for each parental home, a lamb for each household. Shemot 12:3


+ 145 But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor who is nearest to his house shall take one according to the number of people, each one according to one's ability to eat, shall you be counted for the lamb. Shemot 12:4


+ 133 You shall have a perfect male lamb in its first year; you may take it either from the sheep or from the goats. Shemot 12:5


+ 158 And you shall keep it for inspection until the fourteenth day of this month, and the entire congregation of the community of Israel shall slaughter it in the afternoon. Shemot 12:6


+ 138 And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they will eat it. Shemot 12:7


+ 135 And on this night, they shall eat the flesh, roasted over the fire, and unleavened cakes; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Shemot 12:8


+ 142 You shall not eat it rare or boiled in water, except roasted over the fire its head with its legs and with its innards. Shemot 12:9


+ 126 And you shall not leave over any of it until morning, and whatever is left over of it until morning, you shall burn in fire. Shemot 12:10


+ 143 And this is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste it is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 12:11


+ 149 I will pass through the land of Egypt on this night, and I will smite every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and upon all the gods of Egypt will I wreak judgments I, the Lord. Shemot 12:12


+ 143 And the blood will be for you for a sign upon the houses where you will be, and I will see the blood and skip over you, and there will be no plague to destroy you when I smite the people of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:13


+ 125 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 167 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, but on the preceding day you shall clear away all leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leaven from the first day until the seventh day that soul shall be cut off from Israel. Shemot 12:15


+ 143 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 149 And you shall watch over the unleavened cakes, for on this very day I have taken your legions out of the land of Egypt, and you shall observe this day throughout your generations, as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:17


+ 136 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, you shall eat unleavened cakes, until the twenty first day of the month in the evening. Shemot 12:18


+ 169 For seven days, leavening shall not be found in your houses, for whoever eats leavening that soul shall be cut off from the community of Israel, both among the strangers and the native born of the land. Shemot 12:19


+ 145 You shall not eat any leavening; throughout all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened cakes." Shemot 12:20


+ 168 Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, Draw forth or buy for yourselves sheep for your families and slaughter the Passover sacrifice. Shemot 12:21


+ 151 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop and immerse it in the blood that is in the basin, and you shall extend to the lintel and to the two doorposts the blood that is in the basin, and you shall not go out, any man from the entrance of his house until morning. Shemot 12:22


+ 167 The Lord will pass to smite the Egyptians, and He will see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and the Lord will pass over the entrance, and He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses to smite you. Shemot 12:23


+ 134 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 122 And it shall come to pass when you enter the land that the Lord will give you, as He spoke, that you shall observe this service. Shemot 12:25


+ 133 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


+ 171 You shall say, It is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord, for He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, and He saved our houses. And the people kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 12:27


+ 134 So the children of Israel went and did; as the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:28


+ 145 It came to pass at midnight, and the Lord smote every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who is in the dungeon, and every firstborn animal. Shemot 12:29


+ 153 And Pharaoh arose at night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great outcry in Egypt, for there was no house in which no one was dead. Shemot 12:30


+ 171 So he called for Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, Get up and get out from among my people, both you, as well as the children of Israel, and go, worship the Lord as you have spoken. Shemot 12:31


+ 130 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 154 So the Egyptians took hold of the people to hasten to send them out of the land, for they said, "We are all dead." Shemot 12:33


+ 157 The people picked up their dough when it was not yet leavened, their leftovers bound in their garments on their shoulders. Shemot 12:34


+ 177 And the children of Israel did according to Moses' order, and they borrowed from the Egyptians silver objects, golden objects, and garments. Shemot 12:35


+ 138 The Lord gave the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and they lent them, and they emptied out Egypt. Shemot 12:36


+ 156 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 150 And also, a great mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and cattle, very much livestock. Shemot 12:38


+ 144 They baked the dough that they had taken out of Egypt as unleavened cakes, for it had not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt, and they could not tarry, and also, they had not made provisions for themselves. Shemot 12:39


+ 133 And the habitation of the children of Israel, that they dwelled in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Shemot 12:40


+ 124 It came to pass at the end of four hundred and thirty years, and it came to pass in that very day, that all the legions of the Lord went out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:41


+ 141 It is a night of anticipation for the Lord, to take them out of the land of Egypt; this night is the Lord's, guarding all the children of Israel throughout their generations. Shemot 12:42


+ 162 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the statute of the Passover sacrifice: No estranged one may partake of it. Shemot 12:43


+ 147 And every man's slave, purchased for his money you shall circumcise him; then he will be permitted to partake of it. Shemot 12:44


+ 130 A sojourner or a hired hand may not partake of it. Shemot 12:45


+ 140 It must be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the meat out of the house to the outside, neither shall you break any of its bones. Shemot 12:46


+ 132 The entire community of Israel shall make it. Shemot 12:47


+ 182 And should a proselyte reside with you, he shall make a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. All his males shall be circumcised, and then he may approach to make it, and he will be like the native of the land, but no uncircumcised male may partake of it. Shemot 12:48


+ 123 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 147 All the children of Israel did; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. Shemot 12:50


+ 116 It came to pass on that very day, that the Lord took the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with their legions. Shemot 12:51


+ 165 That you shall give over to the Lord whatever opens the womb, and every miscarriage that opens the womb of an animal which will be yours, the males belong to the Lord. Shemot 13:12


+ 128 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 142 You inclined Your right hand; the earth swallowed them up. Shemot 15:12


+ 168 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 171 Now Moses hands were heavy; so they took a stone and placed it under him, and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one from this side, and one from that side; so he was with his hands in faith until sunset. Shemot 17:12


+ 179 Then Moses father in law, Jethro, sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings to God, and Aaron and all the elders of Israel came to dine with Moses father in law before God. Shemot 18:12


+ 143 And you shall set boundaries for the people around, saying, Beware of ascending the mountain or touching its edge; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. Shemot 19:12


+ 137 Honor your father and your mother, in order that your days be lengthened on the land that the Lord, your God, is giving you. Shemot 20:12


+ 110 One who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:12


+ 136 If it is torn apart, he shall bring witness for it; for the torn one he shall not pay. Shemot 22:12


+ 147 Six days you may do your work, but on the seventh day you shall rest, in order that your ox and your donkey shall rest, and your maidservant's son and the stranger shall be refreshed. Shemot 23:12


+ 159 And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them. Shemot 24:12


+ 137 And you shall cast four golden rings for it, and you shall place them upon its four corners, two rings on its one side, and two rings on its other side. Shemot 25:12


+ 132 And the overhanging excess in the curtains of the tent half of the extra curtain shall hang over the rear of the Mishkan. Shemot 26:12


+ 161 The width of the courtyard on the western side, hangings fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten. Shemot 27:12


+ 144 And you shall put the two stones upon the shoulder straps of the ephod as stones of remembrance for the sons of Israel, and Aaron shall carry their names before the Lord upon his two shoulders as a remembrance. Shemot 28:12


+ 129 And you shall take some of the blood of the bull and apply it on the horns of the altar with your finger, and you shall pour out all the blood upon the base of the altar. Shemot 29:12


+ 143 When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to the Lord an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. Shemot 30:12


+ 117 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:12


+ 138 Why should the Egyptians say: He brought them out with evil intent to kill them in the mountains and to annihilate them from upon the face of the earth? Retreat from the heat of Your anger and reconsider the evil intended for Your people. Shemot 32:12


+ 161 Moses said to the Lord: Look, You say to me: Bring this people up! But You have not informed me whom You will send with me. And You said: I have known you by name and you have also found favor in My eyes. Shemot 33:12


+ 112 Beware lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are coming, lest it become a snare in your midst. Shemot 34:12


+ 93 The ark and its poles, the ark cover and the screening dividing curtain; Shemot 35:12


+ 116 He made fifty loops on the edge of one curtain, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain in the second set; the loops corresponded to one another. Shemot 36:12


+ 122 And he made for it a frame a handbreadth wide all around, and he made a golden crown for its frame all around. Shemot 37:12


+ 125 And for the western side, hangings fifty cubits, their pillars ten and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver. Shemot 38:12


+ 93 And the third row: leshem, shevo, and achlamah. Shemot 39:12


+ 98 And you shall bring Aaron and his sons near the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall bathe them in water. Shemot 40:12


+ 124 And he shall cut it into its prescribed sections, with its head and its fat, and the kohen shall arrange them on top of the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. Vayikra 1:12


+ 157 However, you shall bring them as a first fruit offering to the Lord; nevertheless, they shall not go up on the altar as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 2:12


+ 116 And if his sacrifice is a goat, he shall bring it before the Lord, Vayikra 3:12


+ 134 He shall take out the entire bull to a clean place outside the camp, namely, to the ash depository, and he shall burn it in fire on wood. Thus, it shall be burnt in the ash depository. Vayikra 4:12


+ 136 He shall bring it to the kohen, and the kohen shall scoop out a fistful as its reminder, and cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, upon the fires of the Lord. It is a sin offering. Vayikra 5:12


+ 127 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:12


+ 129 If he is bringing it as a thanksgiving offering, he shall offer, along with the thanksgiving offering unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and scalded flour mixed with oil. Vayikra 7:12


+ 129 And he poured some of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head, and he anointed him to sanctify him. Vayikra 8:12


+ 128 And he slaughtered the burnt offering. And Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around. Vayikra 9:12


+ 156 And Moses spoke to Aaron and his surviving sons, Eleazar and Ithamar, Take the meal offering that is left over from the Lord's fire offerings, and eat it as unleavened loaves beside the altar, for it is a holy of holies; Vayikra 10:12


+ 110 Any creature that does not have fins and scales in the water is an abomination for you. Vayikra 11:12


+ 100 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 12:1


+ 137 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a woman conceives and gives birth to a male, she shall be unclean for seven days; as in the days of her menstrual flow, she shall be unclean. Vayikra 12:2


+ 101 And on the eighth day, the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. Vayikra 12:3


+ 206 And for thirty three days, she shall remain in the blood of purity; she shall not touch anything holy, nor may she enter the Sanctuary, until the days of her purification have been completed. Vayikra 12:4


+ 145 And if she gives birth to a female, she shall be unclean for two weeks, like her menstruation period. And for sixty six days, she shall remain in the blood of purity. Vayikra 12:5


+ 130 And when the days of her purification have been completed, whether for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring a sheep in its first year as a burnt offering, and a young dove or a turtle dove as a sin offering, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, to the kohen. Vayikra 12:6


+ 119 And he shall offer it up before the Lord and effect atonement for her, and thus, she will be purified from the source of her blood. This is the law of a woman who gives birth to a male or to a female. Vayikra 12:7


+ 130 And if she cannot afford a sheep, she shall take two turtle doves or two young doves: one as a burnt offering and one as a sin offering. And the kohen shall effect atonement for her, and she shall become clean. Vayikra 12:8


+ 137 And if the tzara'ath has spread over the skin, whereby the tzara'ath covers all the skin of the person with the lesion, from his head to his feet, wherever the eyes of the kohen can see it, Vayikra 13:12


+ 113 And the kohen shall take one male lamb and bring it as a guilt offering, along with the log of oil, and wave them as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 14:12


+ 123 And an earthenware vessel which the man with the discharge will touch, shall be broken. And any wooden vessel shall be rinsed in water. Vayikra 15:12


+ 127 And he shall take a pan full of burning coals from upon the altar, from before the Lord, and both hands' full of fine incense, and bring it within the dividing curtain. Vayikra 16:12


+ 135 Therefore, I said to the children of Israel: None of you shall eat blood, and the stranger who sojourns among you shall not eat blood. Vayikra 17:12


+ 115 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister; she is the close relative of your father. Vayikra 18:12

+ 117 The Worth of Torah

The Torah is given to Israel as the brightest, broadest, holiest gateway of light—more than the other gateways, which shine with a natural understanding and the spirit of humanity’s natural morality. The gateway of Torah will be opened for us; and, through us, for the entire world.

If we close our ears to the wide-spread voice of God, which calls with vigor through all the natural gateways of light, which is the inheritance of all humanity, because we think that we will find the light of Torah only in a Torah that is torn from any light of the life that is dispersed in the world, in that light’s inner being and in the soul of man in its glory, we do not understand the worth of Torah.

In regard to this, the verse states, “A nation that is foolish and not wise.” And Onkelos translates: “A nation that received the Torah, yet did not grow wise.”

Orot Hatorah 12:5


+ 109 The Torah Is the Spiritual Holy Land

Just as the Community of Israel develops its special qualities to their full extent only in the land of Israel, so does each Jew only develop his special spiritual qualities by means of the Torah.

The Torah is the spiritual holy land, corresponding to the unique nature of the Jewish soul. All other areas of knowledge are like other lands, and relate as such to the soulful greatness of the nation of Israel.

Orot Hatorah 12:7


+ 104 The Inner Character

The Torah literally makes the Jewish soul.

Wisdom in general, that which is outside the concepts of Torah, makes the human soul.

When we gaze at the character of the core of the human soul, we will find the spirit of Israel alive within it. In the inner character of all betterment and wisdom, we will find the light of Torah.

Orot Hatorah 12:4


+ 100 The Entire World Will Rise

The Torah is bound with the spirit of Israel. The sheer spirit of Israel is filled with everything: the light of God, the purpose of creation, the source of souls.

When the Torah grows stronger, when its knowledge spreads, when its light shines, when its feelings grow deep in the midst of every soul, then the divine light will spread throughout the world; it will grow more magnificent and exalted; and the entire world will rise with the elevation of those individuals who lift the spirit.

Orot Hatorah 12:1


+ 169 Dark Alleys Shine

Once we learn much hidden Torah, whatever we understand and learn from the revealed Torah shines with a precious light.

Then the hidden Torah, with its special quality, appears in all those topics that the revealed Torah discusses.

This is found in the Jerusalem Talmud: since its authors were pious, their Torah was “blessed.” In contrast, the words of the Babylonian Talmud are merely “kept.” It seems that the Jerusalem Talmud deals with more elevated, pious people. Because of them, the Torah grows and becomes glorious. This is due to the appearance of attainments of holiness, starting from a small beginning and developing into great and powerful rivers. These people attain the light of Torah by prayer and deep study, as well as before and after learning. Such people constitute the body of Torah and the soul of Torah.

In this regard, there is a difference between the air of the land of Israel (where the holy spirit can flow upon the content of Jewish law) and elsewhere (where the holy spirit can spread openly only in aggadah, whereas Jewish law is judged by human intellect).

“‘In the dark places, You have placed me’ (Eichah 3:6)—this is the Babylonian Talmud” (Sanhedrin 24a). But from the midst of darkness, great light will sprout: “The nation that walks in darkness has seen a great light, those who dwell in a land of the shadow of death—light has shone upon them” (Is. 9:1). [“These are masters of the Talmud, who have seen great light, for the Holy One, blessed be He, illumines their eyes with what is forbidden and allowed, what is ritually unclean and clean” (Midrash Tanchuma Noach).]

In this way, these people bring down to the lowly avenues of life the illumination of God’s supernal Presence. In this way, they cause multitudinous dark alleys to shine. This aids numbers of those who are distant come, approach and connect to the supernal light of the glow of Torah in its might, the Torah of the land of Israel: “‘The gold of that land is good’ (Bereishis 2:12)—there is no Torah like the Torah of the land of Israel, and no wisdom like the wisdom of the land of Israel” (Bereishis Rabbah 16).

+ 52 Through the natural remedy of the engagement in Torah and Mitzvot Lishma, which the Giver of the Torah knows, as our sages wrote (Kidushin 30b), “The Creator says, ‘I have created the evil inclination, I have created for it the Torah as a spice.’” Thus, that creature develops and marches upward in degrees of the above spoken exaltedness, until he loses all remnants of self-love and all the Mitzvot in his body rise, and he performs all his actions only to bestow, so even the necessity that he receives flows in the direction of bestowal, so he can bestow.
