Va-etchanan, 10 Menachem Av 5778
July 22, 2018

Tu B'Av (the 15th of Av) will take place on Friday (beginning Thursday at sunset). This is probably the least observed and talked about holiday in Judaism. However, the Kabbalists tell us that this day is the most positive day in the entire year. It is the day when harmony reigns in the entire universe between all vessels and the Light of the Creator. The energy of this day gives us the potential of completing our tikun without the use of any tools. Perhaps this may be the reason this Kabbalistic "Valentine's" day has become not such a big deal. Even though we don't have to read the Megilah or blow the shofar or light the menorah, we should still give this day recognition and be aware of the amazing energy flowing into our world at that time. The Temples were destroyed because of sinat chinam (causeless hatred). Tu B'Av is the antidote to restoring the Temple, to restoring the fallen state of humanity. Everything else we have tried has failed, Tu B'Av invites us to give unconditional love a chance. It gives us the promise and hope of a new era and a new world.

Shavua tov,

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.
