22 Nisan 5781
April 4, 2021
With Pesach behind us, we have a journey of preparation
for the Festival of Shavuot, the anniversary of the giving of the
Torah at Mount Sinai. The word Shavuot literally means "weeks" and
refers to the period of the Counting of The Omer that begins on the
2nd day of Pesach and concludes with the Festival of Shavuot. Why
is it necessary for us to count each day? When the Israelites
were in Egypt they became much like their masters, the Egyptians
and descended to the 49th level of negativity. Kabbalah teaches
that the 50th level is spiritual suicide and from which there is
no return. It was necessary for the Creator to perform miracles
and free the Israelites from slavery, both physical and spiritual. Bread
of Shame is the idea that we must invest effort in order to reap
rewards and blessings. A familar saying illustrates this idea
rather well, "G-d helps those who help themselves." On
the night of Pesach we are given this energy of freedom. However,
we are not able to keep it because we have not yet put forth the
effort in building up a vessel to contain it. The Counting
of The Omer takes place over the course of 49 days or 7 weeks. Each
week we work on a particular Sefirah and we put forth effort to build
a vessel. When we arrive at the Festival of Shavuot, our vessel
is complete and we are able to contain the energy we receive on that
day. Freedom is a journey, Counting the Omer are our steps
along the way. May these Weeks of the Omer be an opportunity for
us to grow and transform in our journey.

HaShirim - New Chapter Each Week y en Español
We have begun our transliteration and translation of Shir HaShirim in
both English and Spanish. We will be adding a new chapter each week until
it is complete. Go to the Shabbat Siddur portion of our Kabbalah4All
to download it.
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.
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
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.
