Women of Vision
There are 55 Prophets in the Sefer Neviim - Book of the Prophets. Of the 55 Prophets mentioned in the Sefer 7 are women.
It is important to note that only the Prophets that prophesized prophecies that relate to future times are recorded in the Sefer Neviim - Talmud Megillah 14A
Here is some information about one of these 7 - It is planned to give you information about the others in future weeks:
Sarah Imenu:   
Do you know where in the Torah does Sarah prophesize?
Genesis Chapter 21 verses 9 - 12
Sarah, the wife of Abraham, had her request for the banishment of Hagar and Ishmael supported by God Himself, who told Abraham to listen to her, as she was a greater prophet than her husband. Teaching of the Talmud
The Zohar explains that Sarah was not jealous of HaGar or Ishmael. Sarah saw Hagar teaching Ishmael the laws of Idol Worship and through her power of Prophecy saw that Ishmael could not inherit any aspect of the Wisdom of the Torah.
Do you know where in the Torah Sarah did not use her power of Prophecy? 
It is in Genesis Chapter 16 Verse 6.
By mistreating HaGar she created the potential enmity between Ishmael and Isaac.
Where is Sarah first mentioned in the Book of Prophets? Sarah is mentioned only once in the Book of Prophets.
It is Isaiah Chapter 51 Verse 2. This verse refers to her as our mother not a Prophetess.

Shabbat Chayei Sarah:

Last week the energy of Vayera is certainty. This week the energy is to manifest certainty. What is the meaning of the manifesting of certainty?
The manifestation of certainty is unity.
How do we know?
The unusual manner that the Torah describes the length of Sarah's life being 127 years. The Torah says this truth in the following manner: 100 YEAR - 20 YEAR - 7 YEARS.
notice that 2 of the 3 times the Torah says Year it is in the singular and 1 time it is in the plural.
In Torah the number 3 refers to the 3 columns of the Tree of Life. Plural indicates more than one and therefore is connected to the energy of separation which is the physical world connected to the lower 7 Sefirot.
The word year in the singular is indicating right and left columns and a level of spirituality.  Yet the idea year is indicating 100 meaning 10 sefirot within 10 sefirot. Also 20 represents 10 sefirot of direct light and 10 sefirot of returning light.
Thus we see how cerrainty manifests as unity.

First Verse Kabbalistic Analysis:
ויהיו חיי שרה מאה שנה ועשרים שנה ושבע שנים שני חיי שרה
And the life of Sarah was a hundred and seven and twenty years; these were the years of the life of Sarah.
Vayeheyu Chayei Sarah Maah Shana VeEsrim Shana VeSheva Shanim Shenai Chayei Sarah.

12 words connect to the 12 Tribes of Israel as well as the 4 letters of HaShem in each of the 3 columns.
43 Letters connects to the Hebrew word for a magician as well as a Hebrew verb for vanished.
Shiluv Tool:  First Letters
This is my intuitive connection. You need to do this for yourself as well.
וחשמשושוששחש - שמש חש שח שש ווו
שמש = sun
חש = sense - feel - worry - hurry - hasten - intuit
שח = walk  - stroll - bow
שש =  six
ווו = Tzadik Name No  1 = Energy of Life
Intuitively Life comes from the sun; worry about bowing to six Idols uses more energy.

Shiluv Tool:  Final Letters
This is my intuitive connection. You need to do this for yourself as well.
ויהההםהעםייה - Gematria of these letters equals 211 . 211 is the gematria of the Hebrew word gebur = strong; Ari = Lion; Iyar = one of the Hebrew months that deals with healing.
Please email yeshshem@hotmail.com with your own meanings to these letters as acronyms. Your meanings will be added to the parasha page along with the attribution unless you request that there not be an attribution posted.

It is important that the above is not misinterpreted. There is only one God and He/She/It is the God of the Children of Israel. Always show respect -   fear, awe for God whose Name is יהוה  

Included in this name are all of the attributes that a human being perceives as belonging to HaShem, including Elohim - Shadai - myriads of other Names.

What can we expect this year -
5778 - Kabbalistically?

Utilize these 3 words to assist you in realigning your new year as you will be able to do on the Holiday of Yom Kippur as taught in the Kabbalah.

There is still an opportunity to change the DNA of the year according to the Kabbalists. Up until Chanukah we can still make changes.

Yes it is more difficult than doing this on Yom Kippur yet it still can be done. To do this requires us to continue our Teshuvah.

Why Study Zohar?

Here are quotes from famous Kabbalists:


Behold [the expression] 'the Tree of Life' refers to Pnimiut HaTorah, the inner dimension of the Torah, as stated in [the passage from] the Raya Mehemna, Parshas Naso, [cited above]: 'Since in the future, the Jews will taste the Tree of Life which is the Sefer Ha Zohar, Tanya, Iggeres HaKodesh', explains that the term 'the Tree of Life' refers to 'the inner dimensions of the Torah and its mitzvos.'
To explain: The Written Law is referred to as 'the Tree of Life' because it does not enclothe itself in material garments to the same degree [as does the Oral Law]. (For [the Written Law emanates] from Zaer Anpin.) And in [the Written Law], G-dly light can be sensed.
Similarly, Pnimiyus HaTorah has not enclothed itself in material garments, for instead, it speaks of spiritual matters including the chainlike progression of spiritual existence and G-dly subjects. Moreover, the conceptualization and the comprehension of these matters is spiritual and in [this type of thought], the G-dly light can be felt.
Its entire intent is to know G-d and to come to love and fear Him, as the Shaloh writes in his Masechta Shavuos, p. 183b ,269 with regard to the study of Torah lishmah:
The words of Torah that involve research, knowledge, and comprehension [of G-d Himself should be studied in order to know His name and His greatness, and the hidden secrets of His mitzvos. Then the person's heart will be roused to fear Him and to love Him.


The study of the Zohar ha Kaddosh in our times is very necessary to protect and save us from all evil. For the revelation of this wisdom in our times, helps to purify and protect us greatly so that we will be able to cling with a complete heart to our Father in Heaven.
For the people of prior generations were Tzaddikim and Chassidim and people of great deeds, and thus were saved from the accusers, but now we are far removed from our source, and what will protect us if not our reading this Wisdom? 
Rabbi Yaakov Tzemach, Hakdama le Etz Chayim


Our Holy Master Rabbi Chayim Vital, may his merit shield us, in the introduction to the book Etz Chayim, warned the students of the Torah, those who listen to the Word of G-d, the great obligation they have to study the hidden Torah [Kabbalah], and the great punishment for neglecting its study, because one hour of this study does the same as thirty days of the study of Pshat (plain meaning of the Torah)  (Kise Melech on Tikune Zohar 30, 73b)
"And all his kindness is like the grass of the field" (Yeshayahu 40:6) All the kindness that they do, they do only for themselves. And even all those that occupy themselves in the Torah, all the kindness that they do, they do for themselves...Woe to those who cause him [The Mashiach] to leave from the world and don't come, and they are those who cause the Torah to be deserted and do not wish to occupy themselves with the Wisdom of the Kabbalah, for they cause the spring of wisdom to depart which is the YUD, and the BEIT is left on its own (Dried up). Woe to those that they cause poverty, sword, death and destruction... 
Tikkune Zohar Tikkun 30
chanoch adds: The Yud mentioned above is HaShem who conceals himself when the Kabbalah is not studied. The Beit mentioned above is referring to the Torah itself as the first letter is the Beit. This comment is to help you understand this section.


"From the year 1540 onward, it is most important that all study the Kabbalah in public and preoccupy themselves with the study of Kabbalah. For through the merit of Kabbalah and in fact solely through Kabbalah will the Mashiach appear and forever efface war, destruction, social injustice, and above all, man's inhumanity".

Rabbi Avraham Azulai, Or ha Chama, Introduction
If the person does not occupy himself with the 4 levels of Torah study:
PESHAT REMEZ DERASH SOD [PARDES- Simple meaning, allusion, Homiletical level, and the secrets of the Torah] he is missing the Mitzvah of Talmud Torah which is great and is equivalent to all other Mitzvot in the Torah, and this person has to reincarnate until he will occupy himself with the four levels PARDES. 
Kitve Ari ha Kaddosh, Shaar ha Mitzvot Alef

"It is a great obligation on all Israel to study the Zohar ha kaddosh every single day, even when it is said without understanding, for this builds worlds and he purifies and sanctifies his soul and there is no limit to the greatness of his reward because through this he brings redemption closer and brings great pleasure to His Creator . . Therefore everybody should at least study five pages per day of the Zahor ha Kaddosh.
Tzavaat Rav Meir Schwartz mi Faidhotz

"The Sefer ha Zohar is a Tikkun for the Baaal Teshuvah - The Man of Return to Hashshem."
Shivche ha Arizal         
"If he is meritorious to wake up before dawn. he should then study Sefer ha Zohar for in its merit the Jews will come out of Exile which resembles the night and even though he has not the merit to understand it, even so he shall learn the language for it purifies the soul". 
Siddur Shaar ha Shamaim Seder Limud shel ha Kodmim

"And the main point is that when your soul will cling to the books that deal with Yirut Hashem, that you thereby will realize at every moment the great debt you owe to the Creator of all worlds, and in particular through the sefer ha Zohar which is the most important of all, and it will cause your heart to flare up in flames of fire, the Sefer ha Zohar is the key". 
Sefer Sur me Rav ye Ase

"One should learn Sifre Kabbalah, and when he does not understand it he should learn the Zohar and the Tikkunim for they are a Segula to purify the Neshama"  
Siddur ha Aziral of Rabbi Yaakob Kapil

"The study of the Sefer ha Zohar is more elevated than any other study, even if he does not know what he is saying and even if he makes mistakes. And it is a great Tikkun for the Neshama, because even though the Torah is composed of names of the Holy one Blessed be He, it is nevertheless clothed in many stories, and when the person reads, he understands the stories and puts his mind on the simple meaning of those stories, but the sefer ha Zohar has the secrets revealed, and the reader knows that there are secrets and the occult parts of the Torah, only that he does not understand because of the depth of the subject and the shortness of his understanding".  
The Chida, More Ba Etzba Siman 44

"...And even when he is like an animal that does not know how to read, even with all this, his reward will be double and there is an insinuation in the verse (Tehillim) "Man and beast Hashem saves" where the Gematria of the words TOSHIA HASHEM (Saves Hashem) plus the letters plus the 2 words themselves equals the sum of the following: ZOHAR TIKKUNIM BE DIKDUK TZACH (TZADDI CHET - TZE CHASHOV) - chanoch adds: Zohar and the Tikunim is the grammer seed level of cleansing. 
Hakdamat of the Editor of the Zohar edition printed in Livorno
chanoch's Commentary
You may have heard me say that when reading the Zohar in Hebrew or Aramaic that I do not understand - I realize that I made a mistake in pronunciation. When I go back and correct that mistake I make a Tikkun - a correction. This is because making a mistake is caused by our Tikkun which causes a blockage. When I go back and pronounce the words properly I make this correction and break that specific Klipah.
"He who studies the Zohar, even when he doesn't understand what comes out of his mouth, Ha Kaddosh Baruch Hu rectifies his words..."
Hakdamat of the Editor of the Zohar edition printed in Livorno 
"It is necessary to read in the Sefer ha Zohar even when he does not know what it says, because it is a great correction to the Shechina and to his own soul as it is known for various reasons."
Tikkun Leil Shavuot Le ha Ramaz  
"O that my people would listen to me, in this evil generation when heresy increases, It is proper to learn the Zohar and the Tikkunim with children nine years of age so that their fear of Hashem will precede their wisdom and will be maintained"
Notzer Chessed on Massechet Avot, Perek 4 

"One who does not merit to understand The Zohar, he should nevertheless learn, because the language of the Zohar purifies the soul"
Ohr Tzaddikim by Rav Meir Papirash 
"And we see that in regards to the study of the Mishna there are many opinions that say that one must understand what he is studying, but when reading Tehillim (Book of Psalms) or the Zohar even if one doesn't understand anything at all, it is important and received and desired by The Holy One Blessed Be He" 
Pele Yoatz
"One who does not merit to understand The Zohar, he should nevertheless learn, because the language of the Zohar purifies the soul"     
   Ohr Tzaddikim by Rav Meir Papirash, a student of the Ari ha Kadosh

"Because of this work. the Book of the Zohar, [the Children of Israel] will be redeemed from exile" 
The Zohar ha Kaddosh (3, 124b)
