Re-eh, 24 Menachem Av 5778
August 5, 2018

The "Yud" is the smallest letter of the Hebrew alefbet. It begins as a point which is then stretched out. Through the transformation of our ego selves, we are able to make that point bigger and thus let the Light within our soul shine. Every person has a "yud", a divine spark. It is what connects us all to the Great Yud (the Creator's Light). It is important to remember that the Creator does not ask us all to become like Stepford wives or Stepford husbands. Our individuality and uniqueness is very very important, not only to tikun ha-midot (our personal correction), but also to tikun olam (the correction of the world). It is ok to be individual and unique. Of course, because of the ego, we tend to have conflict with others when they don't think as we do or believe as we do. "Love thy neighbor" seems simple, but as we know it is not the easiest thing to do. When we accept the individuality of others and recognize the little "yud" in every person, then it is easier to love them. Kabbalah teaches us that the little "yud" within us all can never be blemished or stained, it remains pure. It is the ego self that tarnishes our image and hides the little "yud" so it cannot shine. This week try to meditate on your little "yud" and also try to see the little "yud" in others despite their egos. It may not always be easy to do, but as a result your little "yud" will shine brighter.

Weekly Kabbalah Studies to Resume in Cheshvan.
Our Kabbalah Studies will resume in the month of Cheshvan.

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.
