On Tuesday, just before the Shabbat of Beshalach we have a special prayer called Parashat Ha’man that has significant power.

The ‘Parashat Ha’man’ is from the Torah portion of Beshalach and it tells the story of the Manna that God brought down from heavens to feed the Israelites in the wilderness. The Manna had spiritual qualities and it satisfied every person’s taste. The Israelites received the Manna everyday until they reached the borders of the promised land.
In the same portion we find the source of the 72 names and the splitting of the Read Sea. The 72 names provide for us spiritual bridges from Malchut, the world of action, to the upper levels where spiritual and material sustenance are bestowed on us.
The spelled name of YHVH that has the numerical value of 72 יוד-הי-ויו-הי relates to the world of emanationת Atzilut. It is a special and powerful Shabbat that we connect to the power that controls physicality.

Using this special reading that some read everyday after their morning prayers, makes a powerful connection for sustenance.
