In the beginning God’s presence was on Earth.
After seven generations of sins it consecutively ascended (away.)
After seven Tzaddikim it descended (back.)
SHECHINA – TZADDIKIM
Thus we see the job of a Tzaddik is to draw down into our realm the Shechina/God’s presence.
SHECHINA / MOSES
The first drawing down (into our realm) was through Moshe, but in a permanent presence, was through the Mishkan.
SHECHINA / ISHAPCHA
Now the primary mechanism to manifesting the Shechina is through ishapcha – in other words, when an individual rejects the folly of materialistic pursuits.
2. ETERNAL LESSONS
As the Torah is eternal, hence though we physically don’t have the Mishkan, nonetheless the spiritual service of it – as well as the service of going out of Egypt etc. – continues.
JEW / GOD
It is known that the appellation man for the Jew, is because they mirror the “primodial man.”
When the Shechina manifests, simultaneously it effects.
The Baal Shem Tov says, that everything that a Jew possesses, has Sparks of divinity, necessary for his soul to elevate. Through elevating these Sparks, this cuases our souls to elevate and the highest light of God descends.
