Shabbat HaGadol (The Great Shabbat) commemorates the 10th day of Nissan,
when the Hebrew slaves took the lambs that they were going to offer for
Pesach and tied them up outside their homes, to keep until they offered
it on the 14th (Ex. 12:3-6). According to tradition, this was a dangerous
thing to do, because Egyptians worshipped sheep, but miraculously, instead
of slaughtering the Hebrews, the Egyptians instead fought with each other
over whether the Hebrews should be sent away already.
First Twelve Days of Nissan
The first twelve days of the month of Nissan are very special. Each day
represents a different month in the Kabbalistic calendar. During these
first twelve days, it is important for us to connect to the consciousness
of each month and follow the tips so that we can be proactive. Our effort
to be proactive on these first twelve days determines our success of being
proactive for the whole year. Click
Here for a handout with daily meditations for the Twelve Days of Nissan.
The first day of Nissan begins on Shabbat, April 6, 2019. For more
information about the month of Nissan, visit our This
Month's Energy page.

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.
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
