The throat in Avodas Hashem


The throat is the most narrow area of the body. In Avodas Hashem it represents the constraints, restrictions, and barriers in bringing one’s intellectual knowledge into emotional fruition. The throat is therefore called the land of Mitzrayim. The back of the throat is the neck. This is the level of Pharoh, which in Avodas Hashem represents the lusts for worldly pleasures that block the spiritual emotions from creation.
