Why is it the letter ה which represents or is connected with the Shechinah? What is the explanation behind this idea?

    How do you know that such a connection exists? – Double AA Sep 27 '17 at 22:01
  • @DoubleAA I read this in many articles which presented different examples. One of them was a explanation from the chabad website that the final letter ה in יהוה associates with malchut, the sefira of the Shechinah. From kabbalah online (also from the chabad website): teshuva [repentance] is "teshuv-H": the letter that represents the Shechinah. – Levi Sep 28 '17 at 6:15
  • @DoubleAA R. Bachye explains, because 'Hey' (the last letter in G-d's Holy Name) represents the Shechinah. – Levi Sep 28 '17 at 16:27
  • A suffix hei is also the usual way to make a word feminine. But in the case of sheim havayah, the final hei is part of the root, which is \הוה\, to exist. As for the question, I am not competent to discuss most things -- but with regard to Qabbalah, I know enough to be aware of my ignorance. – Micha Berger Sep 29 '17 at 0:17
