Shelach-Lecha, 20 Sivan 5778
June 3, 2018

This week's Parasha is Shelach-Lecha, which literally means "Send forth." Creator asks Moses to send forth spies so that they may investigate the Promised Land. When the spies return they give their report and the people are terrified by the news. When faced with the prospect of having to battle for freedom, the people cry out "if only we had died in the land of Egypt! Or if only we could die in this wilderness!" And here you have the neverending human condition of choosing the easy path over the path that helps us to grow and transform. Kabbalah teaches that if we give and it doesn't hurt a little, then it is not true giving and we have not done a mitzvah at all. After you begin a new fitness regimen, your muscles may start to ache for the first week or so. When you begin to hurt, two things may pop into your mind: 1) This is too difficult and hurts too much, I give up. or 2) Even though there's some pain involved, I have a goal and I must reach that goal. The only way we are going to correct our own past and help repair the world is if we are willing to sacrifice a little and endure the initial aches and pains. Studying Kabbalah and applying it to our lives is not an easy task; it takes study, involvement in services (community prayer), and action. However, if we can stay the course then we will eventually see just how abundant and beautiful the Promised Land really is. May we be blessed to connect to the energy of freedom by taking part in the journey of spiritual transformation.

Shavua tov,

Next Kabbalah Study...
Our Kabbalah Studies will resume after summer break.

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 Support Kabbalah4All
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.
