Behar-Bechukotai, 20 Iyar 5781
May 2, 2021

How often do we lose our focus because we are used to doing something? For example, many of us don't even think about walking, we just get up and move our legs and they take us to where we want to go. Awareness is so important and we try to be aware, but it is easy to let ourselves become distracted by other things. Now we can certainly say that if we really didn't pay attention to the repetitive moving of our feet taking us places, not much would happen. I mean we make sure we don't step in a hole or something, but we never really "watch our step." However, certain things can not be left to automation, and two of the most important are prayer and meditation. It is very important that we are aware when we connect, the combination of prayer and meditation, because without that awareness we do not receive the necessary energy in our spiritual journey. One way to heal our thinking is to increase our awareness. This week try to see if you can pay more attention to some of the things that you normally do without much thought. May we be blessed with awareness in every aspect of our lives.

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.
