16. Atem Nitzavim 5711

Atem Nitzavim 5711
Atem Nitzavim includes the unity of all Jews as one and also the spelling out of the ten types of Jews. This means that the Rosh Hashana blessing has two aspects: a unifying one and one that addresses the individual groups.
This Maamar explores these ideas.
The unity of Jews is also internalized and is not overwhelming and at the expense of the individual.
The mysticism behind this is explained as follows: Ein Sof must be brought into vessels. 1) Light and Vessels, 2) Havaya and Elokim, 3) Kav and Tzimtzum HaRishon, 4) Nefesh haElokis and Nefesh HaBahamis. There are therefore two stages, 1) filling the empty vessels, 2) Filling the (now) full vessels.
This explains the meaning of the Possuk Atem Nitzavim….
