Passover Chol HaMoed Meditations

by Reb Aharon Rubin of

Just a few thoughts.

G-d always is giving of His. It’s up to us to emulate Him. That’s what Pesach is about.

Matsah is fire, water and earth. No wind. No air. That air is us. This is symbolic of G-d restricting, as it were, to give us free will. To create the illusion of us doing. But in truth, we do nothing except to tune ourselves to the awareness of G-d. (הכל בידי שמים חוץ מיראת שמים)

Awareness of G-d is  ד'יראת. That is the door to all. That awareness should permeate everything.  Like air. Air in Hebrew is אויר. The original pronunciation is Awir. I. e. ‘aware’! Awareness of G-d is ubiquitous.

אויר makes up the first letters of  ויראהאהבה. אהבה is active. יראה is passive. Through doing (אהבה) G-d-actions [‘Mitsvoth’], one gains awareness of G-d (יראה). That’s the secret of   הולידאברהם

את יצחק.

This is the sequence of Pesach to Shovuos through the Sefiras HoOmer.
