In Talmud Eser HaSefirot we learn that there are five types of Light – Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Chaya, Yehida. We also learn about Kelim – Soul, Adam, Levush (clothing), Bait (Home), Chatzer (yard). We also learn that there are cases where Levush, Bait/Heichal and Chatzer aren’t part of the Partzuf, which is puzzling.
Close to 70 y/o, RABASH was diagnosed with back illness. He had two choices – either undergo complicated surgery or swim on daily basis. He never knew how to swim, yet in such an old age commited to daily swimming exercises. Once he pointed to his students – you see these naked people? While they can take off their clothing and be out of their homes and yards, similarly the Ohrot (Lights) can be either part of Partzuf or outside of it.
