Yud

“THE INFINITE POINT”. MINYAN. TO ACKNOWLEDGE. THE ORIGIN OF THE JEWISH SOUL.

 

The letter yud, a small suspended point, reveals the spark of essential good hidden within the letter tet. Subsequent to the initial “tzimtzum” (condensation), the contraction of G-ds Infinite Light in order to make place for Creation, there remained, within the empty void, a single, potential point.

 

Before the tzimtzum, the power of limitation was hidden, latent within G-ds Infinite Essence. Following the tzimtzum, this power of limitation became revealed, and paradoxically the Infinite Essence of G-d that originally “hid” the power of limitation now itself became hidden from our limited human perspective within the point of contracted light.

 

All the commandments or statements and in fact every letter of Torah, possess the power of the “little that holds much”, each is a channel for the revelation of G-d s  finite reality. It is the initial point of space and time.

 

Form: a point, a crown above and a pathway below. The smallest of the letters. The only letter suspended in midair.

Numerical value: 10

 

Number ten represents: Ten generations from Adam to Noah and from Noah to Abraham; The “sefirot2, Spiritual Powers; Ten Commandments; ten plagues; ten persons needed for a minyan.
