Chayei Sarah, 16 Cheshvan 5778

November 5, 2017

Kabbalah teaches that the Hebrew letter Nun created this month of Cheshvan. Nun is considered to be the letter of the Mashiach, the time when the "love your neighbor as yourself" consciousness will prevail in our world. As a verb root, Nun means "to reign." As a noun, it means "heir to the throne" from the word "nin." Cheshvan is the eighth month in the Hebrew calendar and is the month of the Mashiach because eight represents the eternal revelation of the Upper Worlds. Just as the number eight transcends the number seven, so does the number fifty (the numerical value of the letter Nun) transcend forty-nine (seven squared). In our world, the Nun is bent over and represents "falling." For this reason King David did not include it in the acrostic of the Ashrei (Psalm 145) because it would signify a spiritual falling. With the coming of the age of the Mashiach, the Nun straightens out (the shape of the final Nun) and descends into our world to reveal the Creator's Light. Though the Nun was left out of the Ashrei, during this month we should meditate upon it. Kabbalah says that a person who has fallen and who transforms and elevates themself has more merit than a righteous person who has never fallen. The lesson for us to ponder and meditate upon this month is that all of us fall, even if we have been on the path of transformation for some time. The important thing to remember is that we can always pick ourselves back up and continue in our rectification and ascension. May we be blessed to learn from the letter Nun so that we too may become straightened out like the final Nun and channel the Creator's Light in our world.

Kabbalah Study Now On Monday Nights!
We have begun a new Kabbalah Study on Monday nights. This Monday night, November 6th, we will continue to look at the letters of the Hebrew AlefBet focusing on the letters Gimel, Hei, and Vav.

NEW Perek Shirah Page
Perek Shirah is an ancient text of unknown authorship, although many commentaries attribute it to King David. It takes the form of a list of eighty-four elements of the natural world. Everything in creation praises its Creator. The lessons can assist us on our journey. Rabbi Eliezer said, Anyone who involves themselves with Perek Shirah in this world, merits saying it in the next world. Kabbalah4All will be working on a new photo each week with a verse until we complete all 84. Click Here to go to our new Perek Shirah page.

New Email List
We now have a new email list after discovering the old one was not working. Click Here to subscribe to our email list.

Please Donate To Keep Kabbalah4All Going
The word "tzedakah" in Hebrew means charity, but actually the word is derived from the root word which means righteousness, justice or fairness. Giving is not viewed as a generous act, it is simply an act of righteousness and justice. Tzedakah is in many ways an exchange of energy and is a visible expression of gratitude in this world for that which we have received. We rely on the generosity of others so that we may make our siddurim (prayer books) and other resources available for all, as well as continue to offer meaningful studies and inspiring services. Please help support our community by making a DONATION. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
