I WILL BLESS YOU

The same term refers to “grafting”

of trees (BaReKH/biBRiKH).

The Torah has been called the Tree of Life.

Since God and Torah are one.

He too is called by that name.

Thus the great Tree and the lesser tree,

which is man, are grafted together.

This is the meaning of

I WILL BLESS YOU: One tree is joined to the other.
