Yosef was the embodiment of the divine characteristic of revelation. He wore the brilliant kasones pasim (multi-colored garment). Paroah gave Yosef the name Tzafnas Pa’nayach – literally, the hidden, revealed through the face. The germara relates that Moshe wore simple white garments as he served as Kohen Gadol (high priest) during the seven inaugural days of the Mishkan.
This was unlike the usual regal vestments worn by the Kohen Gadol (Taanis 11b).
Similarly, the root of the word Shabbos is shev (to return). His students pondered, “You have spent a lifetime preparing for the next world. ” The Vilna Gaon pointed to his tzitzis and said, “This garment I bought for so little money.
On Shabbos through the physical pleasure of consuming a scrumptious meal in purity, we return and experience a union with Hashem. Angels can enjoy G-dliness but they can never experience a relationship to Hashem in essence as we can in this world. By wearing it each day I was able to fulfill such precious mitzvos.
A Jewish king’s task is to personify G-d’s majesty in this world.
I wanted to tell her on the first date, but I knew that would probably be weird. She kind of gave me this half-shy, half-amused smile. But as time has gone on, I also realized that she knew something that I didn’t. I tried so hard to keep that fire going, to keep that emotion alight, but it got harder and harder. And what was even more interesting was that once I realized this on a conscious level, and started trying to find more opportunities to give, the more we both, almost intuitively, became lovey-dovey. From the excitement of dating a woman I felt like I could marry. Imagine a whole nation of people constantly chasing the emotions they had when they were dating. That’s a recipe for disastrous marriages; for a country with a 50% divorce rate; for adultery (the classic attempt to turn the fire back on); for people who do stay together to simply live functional, loveless marriages. How many people are in pain simply because they’ve been lied to.
Moshiach Ben Dovid is Moshe Rabbeinu “Moshe is the first redeemer and the last redeemer,” (Midrash, Zohar Bereishis 25b, 27a).
In the end of days Hashem’s majesty will be revealed on two different levels through Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid.
It is not by coincidence that most mitzvas are accomplished through the performance of a physical (apparently mundane) action in this dark world.
It is through the medium of physicality that Hashem is found and can be connected to in essence.
Finding Hashem in the darkness is the true greatness and unique power of a baal teshuva.
