( Hebrew נוכבי. In Aramaic, “female”) A term in Kabbalah hidden behind many symbols and words in the scriptures, such as earth, land, body, bread, daughter, woman, bride, cup, throne, temple, tabernacle, and more. Nukva refers to the two aspects of our physical body, symbolized on the Tree of Life by Yesod and Malkuth. The Nukva is influenced by the Moon.

“When the Temple, which is the Nukva, was defiled, death was caused to the world for the period of time until the moon, which is the Nukva, is corrected and resumes her radiance.” – Zohar 3. Beresheet B : 57

“One needs to draw illumination into the Nukva.” – Zohar

“Whatever exists down on earth also exists above. There is nothing in this world, in the Nukva, be it ever so small, which does not depend on something appointed over it above, in Binah.” – Zohar 9. Vayetze : 23

“The mother of Solomon, as it is written: “Bat-Sheva the mother of Solomon” (I Melachim 1:11) is the Nukva…” –Zohar
