Translation of my name Tzohara

My Hebrew name is Gila Rena Tzohara.
This is what I learned about Tzohar.  It is important to me in my actions to reflect the Tzohar. - Joy

About Tzohar
Tzohar taaseh L’teivah” — Hashem instructs Noach to make a Tzohar for the ark.
What does Tzohar mean?

Rashi gives two explanations: a) It was a window to let light in to the ark; b) it was a precious stone that emitted light. The Previous Rebbe draws a distinction between these two explanations; a window allows light in from the outside, while a precious stone radiates from within.

The Rebbe explains that this is a message to each one of us to create a “Tzohar” in our lives, a way to reveal the G-dly energy within the universe. This requires a two-step process, mirroring the idea inherent in a window, and in the quality of a precious stone.

a) First, an individual strives to make a “window” in his or her life– allowing the Divine to illuminate every field of endeavor. b) Then each undertaking becomes a “precious stone” – as the enterprise itself starts to radiate G-dly energy to the world.

At Tzohar Seminary, Chassidus will illuminate the study of the arts, and then our students’ enthusiasm and G-d given talents will allow the beauty of Torah to radiate within their creative endeavors. Through the arts: writing, music, dance, fine arts, theatre and filmmaking; the students will create performances, projects, productions and works of art that will communicate Torah and Chassidus to a greater audience.
