Haven on Earth
A-R-B-E: Four levels of the Tzitzit.
Alef- one -Echad,
Reish- many -Rabim,
Beit- Sanctuary -Beit Hashem,
Eiyin- nations -Amim.
One persons clothing with four corners corresponding to the four Canfot - corners of a Beged - one's garment and personal needs, this in analogy to a private domain.
Many tzitzit remind us of many Torah laws corresponding to the four Amot of Halachah, the laws made according to averages among many people, this in analogy to a Public domain.
Sanctuary laws gather and represent the holy nation corresponding to the festival ingathering at the Mountain of the House of G~d, this in analogy to the four Ruchot - directions in the Land of Yisrael.
Nations of four directions turn towards the Way corresponding to Mankind instructed by the Great Court set in Yerushalayim amidst the living Torah of the community of Yaaqov, this in analogy to the four extremities in the inhabited lands aligned and flowing towards the settlement of the land of Torah Sovereignty.
Though for the words of the Torah there can be no final analogy unless it have flowed forth from the well of prophecy and unto the thirst of the prophets and the hunger in the workers of the fields. Those belonging to families that sow clothes together, families making their finest dress and decorating their royal children's wedding canopy.
'IF G~D WILL BE WITH ME, AND KEEP ME IN THIS WAY THAT I GO, AND WILL GIVE ME BREAD TO EAT, AND CLOTHING TO WEAR.' BEREISHIT 28.
'AND IT WILL BE TO YOU AS A FRINGE, THAT YOU MAY LOOK UPON IT, AND REMEMBER ALL THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE L~RD, AND DO THEM.' BAMIDBAR 15.
'WHEN ALL YISRAEL IS COME TO APPEAR BEFORE THE L~RD THY G~D IN THE PLACE WHICH HE SHALL CHOOSE, THOU SHALT READ THIS TORAH BEFORE ALL YISRAEL IN THEIR HEARING.' DEVARIM 31.
'AND MANY PEOPLE WILL GO AND SAY, COME, AND LET US GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE L~RD, TO THE HOUSE OF THE G~D OF YAAQOV; AND HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, AND WE WILL WALK IN HIS PATHS: FOR OUT OF TZIYYON SHALL GO FORTH TORAH, AND THE WORD OF THE L~RD FROM YERUSHALAYIM.' YESHAYAHU 2. END.
