Vayikra, 1 Nisan 5781
March 14, 2021

Today we begin a new month. As we begin Nisan (Aries), our Sages beckon us to plant the seed of each month in the year ahead and to connect to each Tribe during the first 13 days of Nisan. The first of the tribes is Yehudah. Though there are twelve tribes, the Torah states that Jacob said to Yehudah: "Yehudah, your brothers shall acknowledge you." All of the Jewish people are referred to as "Yehudim" even if they were from a different tribe. In Megilat Esther, the story of Purim, Mordechai is referred to as a "Yehudi", even though he was from the tribe of Binyamin. The Talmud states that Mordechai was called a Yehudi because he rejected idolatry, and anyone who rejects idol worship is called a Yehudi. A Midrash adds that a person who rejects idol worship proclaims Hashem's Unity to the world, so he/she is called a "Yehudi", a word similar to "Yechidi", which is the firm conviction that Hashem is the One and Only. We have an exciting month ahead with extraordinary opportunities to connect the Creator's Light. May we be blessed to receive that Light and to share it with those around us.

The First 13 Days of Nissan
The Mishkan was erected on Rosh Chodesh Nisan. For the first 13 days of Nisan, we make a special connection to each day and plant the seed for the next 12 months of the Jewish year. The 13th day represents the lighting of the Menorah in the completed Mishkan. The Kabbalists suggest that when we finish our study for each day, we also meditate on the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names.

We invite you to join us each night beginning Saturday night, March 13th for the First 13 Days of Nisan. Click Here to download the meditations for each day. Our meditation for the First Day of Nissan will begin after Havdalah on Saturday, March 13, 2021. Go to our EVENTS page to join us.

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. You can also support us by ordering a kippah at KippahDIVA.com. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
Weekly Derech Hashem Study
Derech HaShem (The "Way of the Name") is a philosophical text written in the 1730s by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto. It is considered one of the quintessential handbooks of Jewish thought. The text covers a vast gamut of philosophical topics in the vast spectrum of classical Judaism's outlook on the world. These topics include: The purpose of creation, the Creator, human responsibility, the spiritual realms, providence, Israel and the nations, astrology, the human soul, theurgy, prophecy, the study of Torah, prayer, and the function of mitzvah observance. We will hold this class on Tuesdays at 8:30 PM EDT. See our Calendar for more information.

Your Hebrew Name
At the end of the Amidah, we whisper a verse from Scripture which is associated with our Hebrew name. Would you like to know your Hebrew name and the verse from the Tanach which is associated with your name? Or would you like us to help you choose a Hebrew name and even have a certificate with your Hebrew name and verse? Simply for more information.
