command to create man, the female is not mentioned at all. If the command was in fact to create only Adam, why was Eve created? We see that even in the second account of creation, after the command , the female was created, for the Torah goes on to describe how G-d cause a deep sleep to descend upon the man and so forth.

command not to eat of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, the female is not mentioned at all. If the command was directed only to Adam, why was Eve punished? Furthermore, the female was not even created until after the command had been given, for the Torah says G-d caused a deep sleep to descend upon the man only after the commandment was given.

8

It is therefore not possible to explain the absence of the mention of Eve in the beginning of the second account by postulating that in this account woman was not created.

A cursory reading of the two accounts of creation gives the impression that G-d only forbade Adam, not Eve, to eat of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.

The verse, And Abraham was old, having come into days, occurs after Sarah died, when Isaac was already 37, Nonetheless, the Torah stresses how Abraham and Sarah were (already) old when Isaac was born.

The verse, And Abraham and Sarah were old, having come into days, was said when the angels announced to Abraham and Sarah that their Isaac would be born the following year. Thus, the Torah stresses how Abraham and Sarah were already old when Isaac was born.

The Holy of Holies measured three cubits long, while the outer chamber measured seven. This is a clear indication that the inner chamber (the Holy of Holies) is to be associated with the intellect (or head), comprising three sefirot, and the outer chamber with the emotions (or body), comprising seven sefirot.

The Holy of Holies (the inner chamber) measured 10 x 10 cubits, while the outer chamber measured 10 x 20 cubits and was thus twice the size of the Holy of Holies. This would indicate that the outer chamber housed twice as many sefirot as the Holy of Holies. It thus follows that the Holy of Holies housed the three sefirot of the intellect (or head), while the outer chamber housed the six sefirot of the emotions (or body).

According to the Midrash, Lilith was Adams first wife, created out of the earth just as he was. She insisted on lying on top of Adam during intercourse, and when he refused, insisting that it was more proper for him to lay on her, she left him and was transmuted into a demon.

We mentioned previously that the dichotimization of mankind into male and female was G-ds way of assuring proper balance between the male drive to retreat into abstract unity with the Divine and female drive to manifest G-dliness in this world. The glue which holds these two opposite drives together, enabling them to rectify reality properly, is the attraction or passion they have for each other, each one sensing that the other one is its true complement and completion. Allegorically, then, Liliths insistence on lying on top of Adam would be the tendency for this attraction to seek to become an end in itself. Sexuality and sexual passion can promote and actualize a mans or womans innate Divine potential as nothing else can, but the fascination with its very power can divert a persons focus from its true purpose and cause him to focus instead on the ecstatic experience itself.

According to the Midrash, Lilith was Adams first wife, created out of the earth just as he was. She was eventually transmuted into a demon.
