Zion, of the Daily Zohar, advised us of a couple new Chanukah meditations revealed by the Yenuka, Rav Shlomo Yehuda Be’eri הרב שלמה יהודה בארי. We are going to expand on his holy blessings. The first one, connects us to Keter, by using the Holy Name “אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה” “I AM WHO I AM” from Exodus 3:14 that we have covered extensively and will continue to do so because of the power in that Name on high. Using the first two parts of that Name, he equated them in the style of the Arizal to the blessing of lighting the chanukah candles “להדליק נר חנוכה” L’hadleek Ner Chanukah. This meditation is in addition to the ones from the Arizal we have previously explained and the new ones on the 9 candles and their flames that we have just revealed.
It is in the next revelation of the Yenuka that we want to expand and extend its blessings 10-fold throughout all 10 sefirot(dimensions). He informs us that Ohr Haganuz (אור הגנוז), the Light of Moshiach, of numerical value 278, is equivalent to Honor + Image + God (כבוד + צלם + אלהים) and that during the 8 days of Chanukah when the Ohr Haganuz is present we can use this connection to defeat the global plague.
We can amplify the power of the Ohr Haganuz in our world by concentrating on what we are lighting. Besides the 72 Triplet connection you should now be making, please note that the first candle for the first day is lit for 8 days and therefore its power is 18. The second candle for the second day is lit for 7 days and therefore its power is 27, and so forth until all 8 candles are lit (18 + 27 + 36 + 45 + 54 + 63 + 72 + 81). Over the 8 days the Light released if we make the proper connection is 2780 or (10 x 278), the 8 letters in Ohr Haganuz (אור הגנוז) expanded to fill all 10 sefirot. Moreover, please note that the sum of the digits in the connection of the candles (18 + 27 + 36 + 45 + 54 + 63 + 72 + 81) is 72.
The Yenuka expresses the same message we have been sharing, that the connections and meditations must be made with love in your heart and in your deeds. That is his key message and ours. It starts with Love and spreads from there.
Blessings and the Light of Moshiach to all of you, and may we spread and share them with the world,
