Kislev – כִּסְלֵו @ Sefer Yetzira

The Tribe associated with Kislev is Benjamin

The name: Benjamin בנימין in the חשן – Kho-shen
the Breastplate of the High Priest was incised
on the ישפה Yashpeh, or jasper,
which was multicolored.
The banner of Benjamin in the desert travels
showed a wolf,
preying on its spoil, emanating ferocity,
according to the Blessing of Jacob to the Tribes
in Parshat Vayechi:

Benjamin is a fierce wolf בנימין זאב יטרף
(Genesis 49:27)

In addition the Tribe was known to be
skilled in archery, which relates to
Zodiac sign or מזל of the month:
Sagittarius or Keshet קשת
(the archer’s bow and also a rainbow)
which will be discussed below.

Wheras Moshe`s blessing to the Tribe
in Parshat VeZot HaBracha
relates to the Tribe’s future location
(actually a small protrusion
into the boundry of Judah)
upon which the Holy Temple
in Jerusalem would stand
and of course connects
with the miracle of the Lights of Chanuka
and the service of the Temple, which
is celebrated this month.

לְבִנְיָמִן אָמַר יְדִיד י-ה-ו-ה יִשְׁכֹּן לָבֶטַח עָלָיו
חֹפֵף עָלָיו כָּל הַיּוֹם וּבֵין כְּתֵפָיו שָׁכֵן

About Benjamin he said:
May God’s beloved
dwell securely with Him
(in the Bait HaMikdash).
May the Divine Presense cover
(and protect) him forever
and dwell among the high places.

In the painting above the gestalts
of all the ideas may be discerned,
as well as in the video art version below.
