Miketz, 24 Kislev 5779
December 2, 2018

We will begin the festival of Chanukah tonight and with each day we watch the menorah grow brighter. The Kabbalists teach us that we should sit in front of the menorah after kindling the lights and watch and listen to the flames. Why should we listen to the flames? Does this mean to actually hear the sound that they make or does this mean to hear the message of the lights? I think one of the most beautiful messages of the menorah is how it sits in darkness throughout the year, and then as Chanukah begins each day it gets brighter and brighter. Our transformation is much the same way. Our soul sits in darkness until we decide to begin the great task of transforming our ego selves. Once we do start the journey, each day as we transform a little more, our souls become a little brighter. Just like the menorah, it is a gradual change. When you kindle the lights of the menorah, meditate on your own Light, see yourself becoming more of a channel for the Creator's Light. As we become brighter, the world becomes brighter and soon love and harmony will be commonplace. May we receive many miracles, blessings and much Light during the upcoming Chanukah holiday!

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.
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.
