Devar Torah

This week’s parsha, Tazria begins with the pasuk; “Eisha ki tazria v’ yoledes zachar- If a woman will conceive and give birth to a male”. The Ohr HaChayim HaKadosh says that this verse refers to the Yidden who are called Eisha, the wife of Hashem. The Yidden plant Mitzvos and good deeds in this physical world , as the pasuk says “Zaru lachem l’tzedaka- plant for yourselves with tzedaka”. Through this Hashem assures the Yidden that they will give birth to a male, which refers to the future redemption, which is everlasting, complete and without ever returning to galus.

The reason Yidden are called “Eisha” is because; “Ki m’Eish lukcha zos- we are taken from Man”. The Chachamim say that “Man” refers to Hashem as it says “Hashem Eish milchama-Hashem is a Man of war”(as is explained in the Tanya that the Nefesh Elokis is a chelik Elokai mamash- a part of Hashem). Therefore the name Eisha teaches us that the only thing that matters is not the reward but that he or she comes from Hashem; “Ki m’Eish lukcha zos”. As soon as we realize that we are an Eisha, a part of Hashem, we realize that we are here to do whatever Hashem wants us to do. This is what the Torah means when it says that we need to plant, specifically in the land. It means that we need to do Torah and Mitzvos in the physical world. A Yid does not do this for any reward, he does this only because it is the will of Hashem which brings Hashem simcha and nachas. While it is important for a Yid to have a pure heart and a clean mind; we can have the deepest sympathy for those in need, but the poor man needs actual money! If we do not give him the physical money we did not do the mitzvah. A Yid needs a physical Sukkah and Matzos. The most important thing is to occupy our lives with tangible mitzvos.

Why are we here? Because Hashem the Eish wants us to be here doing the Mitzvos in the land. When we fulfill the Mitzvos and plant in the land, then we will merit giving birth to a male, the true everlasting and complete redemption.

(Based on Likutei Sichos v. 1)
