Rabbi Berland’s Prayer for the Molad of Nissan
Master of the World, at the molad of the month of Nissan, the month of miracles and wonders, when we left Mitzrayim, and when we will leave all the exiles, and when we will subdue the 11 Chiefs of Esav, “the sound of the Hallel would crack the roof” (Gemara Pesachim, 85b).
In this holy and awesome month, that begins from the molad, which will be (on Tuesday at 11.27), and from that moment of the molad, may we merit to subdue the 11 Chiefs of Esav (= 11).
And to say, shemesh (640) be’Givon (133) dom (50) v’yereach (244) b’emek (212) Ayalon (97) v’yidom (66) ha’shemesh (645) v’yereach (244) amad (114) ad (74) yikom (156) goy (19) oyvav (36) = (2700 total) (Joshua 10:12) – “the sun in Givon stood still and the moon in the Ayalon Valley will stand still. The sun and the moon stood until he took revenge on the enemy nation.”
And in the merit of this awesome and holy molad, fulfill in me the verse, (Bereishit 6:3): “Since he is but flesh”, that through this, the sun and the moon will join together and unify.
And especially at the moment of the molad, and the moon will receive the light of the sun which is 7 x 7 x 7, completely. And then her light will be like the light of the sun, as it says in Zechariah (4:2) “there was a bowl on its top, and seven lamps upon it, seven times seven ducks for each of the lamps,” which are 7 x 7 x 7.
This is the secret of “since he is but flesh.” [Because they asked the question] “Where do you find Moshe in the Torah?” And behold, Moshe is written 647 times in the holy Torah, so what is this question of “where do you find Moshe in the Torah?”
Rather, [the answer is] Moshe merited to be lit up with 7 x 7 x 7, which are the root of his holy and awesome soul.
Because the root of the soul of Moshe is 7 x 7 x 7, bound together with the root of the soul of Avraham, as it says about him in Bereishit (12:1): “And Hashem said to Avraham lech lecha” = 347, which equals: 7 x 7 x 7 (the Maggid Me’sharim).
Because, when [Moshe] went up to heaven, Hashem formed his features like the features of Avraham, because Moshe Rabbenu, who brought us out of Egypt in the month of Nissan, which is the month of miracles and wonders, renewed from scratch the world of Hashem, with completely new miracles and wonders that never were before in the world.
In the merit of 7 x 7 x 7, which is the secret of the redemption after seven times seven, sevens / seventy, because in this month all the sins are atoned for all those who make genuine teshuva from love.
And this month is the month of the redemption of each and every person generally and individually.
And therefore we merited immediately, with the beginning of the month, on the molad, to make genuine teshuva from love; to renew our nefesh, ruach, neshama, chaya and yechida [five levels of soul].
And may we merit in this month, like Moshe Rabbenu, to attain the level of yechida, like it’s written in Shoftim 11:34 “and only he is yechida.” That the daughter of Yiftach merited that a bat kol (voice from heaven) came out, to take her down from off the altar (Abudraham).
And in this month, that includes encompassing salvations, may we merit to have our Beit HaMikdash rebuilt, the complete redemption, and Moshiach ben David.
Because (30) my intention (486) to unify (53) the holy (415) name (341) blessed (232) is He (12), and the shechina (801) in fear (60) and love (270) = 2700.
