“You Shall Not Take A Widow’s Garment As Security”

Dr. Michael LaitmanTorah, Deuteronomy 24:17 – 24:18: You shall not pervert the judgment of a stranger or an orphan, and you shall not take a widow’s garment as security [for a loan]. You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt…

The widow’s garment remains with her from her previous husband. This is what she is attached to, although it has already come off from that soul, from the Partzuf, to which she belonged as a female part to a male part. It means that the garment that was left to her is part of the screen (Masach) that once was her husband.

After all, the soul consists of male and female part. The female part is a desire and the male part is an intention to bestow. If this intention to bestow disappears or dies, then only the female part remains that is called widow.

However, since she used to belong to the male part, there is a certain residual screen in her and therefore no one has a right to take it. Only if a next husband comes, he will change her garment. This is the whole system of interactions between the old and new intention on the old and new desire. All of it is the cycle of the souls.

Comment: You said once that if a woman had several men, then the genes of the previous men will be embedded in her child.

My Response: Indeed, if a woman had several men, then the genes of all previous men are manifested in her child. Therefore, it is so important that she is a virgin.

This was valued at all times, but today its value has already diminished, not because of debauchery and big egoism, but because the entire world comes this way to its convergence and rounding.

It’s not that egoism from within forces us to be so loose, but because of the purpose of creation. One of the reasons for this is that we must become fully included into each other and unite.
