The Torah, “Exodus (Ki Tissa),” 31:1-31:5: The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: ‘See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have imbued him with the spirit of God, with wisdom, with insight, with knowledge, and with [talent for] all manner of craftsmanship, to do master weaving, to work with gold, with silver, and with copper,with the craft of stones and with the craft of wood, to do every [manner of] work.
The attribute of Bezalel or the wisdom of the heart is revealed when we can express the attribute of love and bestowal in the work that is manifested clearly in the spiritual world. Each of us has the attribute of Bezalel but we have to find it within us. It isn’t about a specific person who has skills to perform any kind of work. We all have to learn to express our altruistic attitude towards others so that it will be locked on others.
The greatest expression of the human attribute of love and bestowal upon the world and through it, upon the Creator is called “the building of the Temple” and all its features, when everything becomes one general home for the one general desire. Everyone who follows the spiritual path to the end of correction has to become Israel first (Yashar – El, straight to the Creator), then Levi, and then Cohen and to discover such attributes like Moses, Aaron, the great priest, and Bezalel.
A person can change the stony heart, his ego, into similarity and full equivalence of form to the Creator by polishing it into a gem, which means by inserting all his love into the stony heart. The measure of love in it turns it into a jewel, or as it says in The Book of Zohar, into a rose.
This is the work of the attribute of Bezalel in the attribute of the wisdom of the heart. But this wise heart turns us into a human being. When we have the Light of Hochma and the Light of Hassadim, we can turn our darkest and most egoistic state into a rose, which symbolizes the attribute in which the Creator is revealed.
