The Six Corners of the Star of David ✡

What is the secret of the Star or Maggen David? 

In this class, we delve into the spiritual significance of the Star of David.   

Kabbalah teaches that the world was created in six days or via the six Sefirot. The six corners of the Star of David represent the six Sefirot and angles of human consciousness and our ability to enter into the center of the matrix.  

Our Sages teach us that there are six daily "remembrances" that one should contemplate upon. The Shulchan Aruch equates these remembrances to the six cities of refuge.   

In our weekly Torah reading, Re'eh- (See), there are six levels of the ascension of the rung of connection "1. You shall follow the Lord, your God, 2. fear Him, 3. keep His commandments, 4. heed His voice, 5. worship Him, and 6. cleave to Him."


Here are the six consistent Mitzvot and the meditation to be enveloped by these six,

Faith in God: Emuna- Above us

To believe that there is one God in the world who created everything that exists, and His will and desire encompass everything that is now, that was, and will be forever. He took us out of Egypt, gave us the Torah, and this is the positive commandment, as it is written, "I am the Lord your God who brought you out..." The meaning is to know and believe that there is a God in the world who supervises, for He brought you out of the land of Egypt.

No Other Gods: Below us

This refers to not believing in any other deity besides God, as it says, "You shall have no other gods before Me." Even if one acknowledges that God controls everything but imagines that He delegated the management of the world to an angel or a star, this would be considered idol worship and transgressing "You shall have no other gods before Me." Instead, one should believe that God Himself and His glory oversee all worlds, and no creation has the power to do anything contrary to His will.

Oneness of God: In front of us

To attribute unique oneness to God, as in the verse, "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one." The meaning is to understand that God is the sole creator of all things according to His will, and He oversees all worlds. He is one, with no partnership whatsoever.

Love for God: Our right

To love the Creator, as it says, "You shall love the Lord your God." How does a person achieve this love? Through the Torah, as explained in the Sifrei: "I don't know how to love God." The Torah says, "And these words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart," which means that through this, you will recognize the One who spoke and brought the world into being. Through contemplation of the Torah, one can recognize the greatness of God, and love for Him will naturally settle in the heart.

Fear of God: Our left 

To have the constant fear of the blessed Creator in order not to sin. This is achieved by recognizing that God is overseeing all of a person's actions, even those done in secret, and that He will bring retribution based on actions, as it is written, "If a man conceals himself in hiding places, shall I not see him?".

Not Straying After Desires: Below us

Not to follow the thoughts of the heart and the sight of the eyes, as it says, "And you shall not stray after your heart and your eyes." Sages said that "stray after your heart" refers to heresy and "stray after your eyes" refers to illicit relations. In general, heresy includes foreign thoughts that contradict Torah teachings, and illicit relations refer to pursuing worldly desires without any intention of serving God.
