    The inyan of the galus of the Shchinah
    I just wondered how the galus of the Shchinah relates to the shiur you just gave, and what the inyan of the galus entails.



    If the geulah means the yichud of Malchus with Z''A kabbalistically, then the galus probably just means the opposite: the existence of Malchus as a separate sefirah.

    On the other hand, if the galus of Malchus d'Atzilus rather means 'very remote', then the ripple effect on Atzilus as a whole by the impressions from Malchus d'Atzilus must be very limited accordingly. In that way it could almost be regarded as a breach in the unity of Atzilus.

    Would you please explain how we have to understand Atzilus - if Malchus d'Atzilus is somehow 'exiled out of it' (as long as the jewish nation is in galus)?



    And thank you for these wonderful 5 classes you gave!

      An Haara of Malchus is lowered and exiled while Malchus itself remains shalaim (like Shulamis etc.) whole.

      “Very remote” sounds like my words. You’ll need to find the original language for that.

    Note From Rabbi Paltiel
    Dear listeners and observers,



    This is the last of five parts on Pasach Eliyahu. It has been quote a journey and an honor to teach.

    I want to make a comment about the first half of tonight’s class. I taught the Maamar the way I understood it underscoring the “Chidush” (innovation) of this Maamar in Chassidus. Of course my p’shat (interpretation) may be wrong but this is how I understand it and I cannot teach it any other way.



    If you disagree I’d love to hear your p’shat and arguments against what I said. I’d be prepared and gladly concede that if it can be shown to be so. But before you dispose of my p’shat please think about it.



    Respectfully,

    Rabbi Yossi Paltiel
