Why do we celebrate Pesach as a group, why not experience it alone?
The Zohar tells us:
All the prayers in the world, that is the public prayers, are considered prayers, but the prayer of a solitary man does not enter before the holy King, save through great effort.
For before the prayer enters to be adorned in its place, the Holy One, blessed be He, examines it and searches that man’s sins and virtues. He does not do this to the prayers of the many, and though some of the prayers come not from the righteous, yet they all come before the Holy One, blessed be He, and he does not regard their sins.
In being part of a group of like minds endeavoring to elevate our consciousness above the physicality, we can create a space of a spiritual shield for us all.
In this way, when we come before a period of great revelation of Light and bring with us our negativity, as individuals alone we may not merit the Light that is available. However, in a group, our collective good makes the negativity null and void. As such, everyone in the room benefits from all that is revealed and available.
