#Vayetzei - "Birth of a Nation"
The Parsha this week tells the birth-story of 11 out of 12
of the Tribal Patriarchs, laying the foundation for understanding the
Cycle of Sacred Time which is the Jewish Year, as reflected by Jewish
The order in which sons of Jacob were born, the spiritual
identities of the four mothers who birthed them, and their unique
Tribal functions, both outwardly in physical reality as well as inwardly
in the realm of symbols and archetypes operating within the individual personality, all have their seeds in this week's Torah portion.
The 12 Tribes correspond to the 12 constellations. This week it's
"Birth of a Nation." Later on in Parshat BaMidbar, the appointed
directions and functions of the now-mature Tribes are described in exact
"As Above - So Below." The 12 Tribes around the Mishkan
(Tabernacle) is the reflection of the heavenly arrangement. Recreated in
exact detail each of the 42 times they encamped in the desert, as if to
indelibly stamp this power-configuration into our very DNA, this
arrangement is the sacred mandala of the Israelites.
