The Book of Zohar, Chapter “Mishpatim [Ordinances],” Item 511: The Creator said, “And you shall be holy men unto Me.” This is why Israel were rewarded with being named “brothers of the Creator,” as it is written, “For the sake of My brothers and friends.”
Reading The Zohar, we try to interpret everything as happening inside a person who strives to connect with the environment and find the property of bestowal in his connection with it. Only on the condition that through the environment he wishes to reveal the property of bestowal, directed from him toward others, will this take place and be called the image of the Creator, which a person reveals.
Then, that person is called “Israel,” and the revealed property of bestowal emanating from him to others is called the “Creator,” the image built between him and a fellow human being (the “Creator,” Bo-Reh, means “come and see”).
