The Color of Heaven – Parshat Korach

“When a Jew wears a four-cornered garment, he has a mitzvah, a commandment, to attach four threads to each of its corners. These threads are called tzitzit. One of these threads is the color of tekhelet… which is a reflection of the blue of the sea, and the blue of the sea is a reflection of the blue of the sky, and the blue of the sky is a reflection of a mystical concept called the Kisei HaKavod, a throne on which, so to speak, Hashem sits.
