Jewish Mysticism
Come and see. The community of Israel needs to ascend above and cleave within the sun. He opened and said, “this is the teaching of the burnt offering; it is the burnt offering…” (Lev. 6-2). Rabbi Shimon said, it is written, “man and beast you shall redeem” (Ps. 36-8). The burnt offering ascends, and the connection of the community of Israel above and its cleaving is within the world to come, so that everything will be one. The burnt offering is called the Holy of Holies, and because of this it is called a burnt offering that ascends and is crowned so that everything will be one in one connection in joy. And since it ascends above, above, it is written, “this is the teaching of the burnt offering [or alternately, that which ascends],” mystery of male and female as one, the oral Torah and the Written Torah, the offering that ascends into the world to come to be connected within that which is called the Holy of Holies, Truly! And the burnt offering is also the Holy of Holies.
