From The Top Of Snir And Hermon

740.03Zohar for All, Shemot [Exodus], Item 16: “From the top of Snir and Hermon” is Mount Sinai, to which they drew near and gathered at its foot, as it is written, “And they stood at the foot of the mountain.”

“And they stood at the foot of the mountain,” means that all human desires within us are standing at the foot of the mountain, hate each other, hate the entire world, and are ready to use everything and everyone just for their own sake.

“From the top of Mount Sinai” means that we ascend to the level of Bina (the quality of complete bestowal). In truth, only our point in the heart, our yearning for the Creator called Moses, rises and reveals the Creator there.

If Mount Sinai is the mountain of Bina (the quality of mercy, bestowal, and love), then Hermon is the mountain of Hochma (the quality of wisdom).

Therefore, Mount Hermon is white, covered with snow, that is, the quality of wisdom. All the light descends from this mountain just as all the streams and rivers descend from it and flow through the land of Israel.

In the end, both mountains merge together: the light of Hochma dresses in the light of Bina.
