Ki Tisa, 10 Adar 5778
February 25, 2018

Kabbalah often refers to our world of Malchut as the "World of Illusions." We think that this world is the most real, when really it is transitory and passing. Even scientists are now proving that this world is not as real as we once thought. In this world there is often doubt and confusion, division and chaos. Our ego often makes us think this is the only reality, which makes us handicapped. What if everyone began to see that we are all one? What if everyone started loving everyone else as they love themselves? What if everyone started caring about the other person too? Wars, famine, disasters, hatred, murder, greed, etc., it would all disappear. Kabbalah teaches that in the age of Mashiach, this will be the prevailing consciousness. We will all live in love and harmony. There is one day out of the entire year that we can experience this world without its illusions, we can see everything and everyone as they truly are, as ONE. Purim is the only day that allows us to experience what it will be like in the age of Maschiach. For this reason, it is the only holiday that will remain in that age. We have the opportunity on Saturday night to taste of this era, to experience a world free from illusion. The challenge is to see if we can carry the Purim consciousness with us into the rest of the year. Isn't it time we live in love and harmony with one another? Kabbalah explains that it is up to each of us; we have the power to hasten the arrival of Mashiach and make every day like Purim. Wishing all of you a Purim sameach!

Next Kabbalah Study...
Our next Kabbalah Study will be on Monday, February 26, 2018. We will talk about the upcoming holiday of Purim.

Fast of Esther
The Fast of Esther is a commemoration of the three day fast observed by the Jewish people in the time of Esther and Mordechai. Remember that fasting in Kabbalah is different than in religious practice. We fast in order to restrict our nefesh soul level, more commonly referred to as the ego. This year the Fast of Esther falls on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from sunrise to sunset.

Join Us For Purim
In order to fulfill the mitzvah of hearing the Megilah Esther, one must hear it at night and during the day.  We will offer two services for Purim, the Purim Evening Service will be on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 8:00 PM EST.  The Purim Morning Service will be on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 10:00 AM EST. 

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.
Please Donate to Show Your Appreciation!
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.
