Apples from the Orchard Mystical Insights on the Weekly Torah Portion from Rabbi Yitzchak Luria- The Arizal

By Rabbi Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky

Gleanings from the Mystical Teachings of Rabbi Yitzchak Luria - the Arizal - on the Weekly Torah Portion Translated by: Rabbi Moshe Wisnefsky The Torah (Bible) has a revealed as well as an esoteric dimension. The revealed side of the Written and Oral Torah, has been transmitted since the giving of the Torah at Sinai. The words of the Torah are like vessels containing the light, condensing it to fit their size and quality. Yet, since the mysteries of the Torah are the very essence of the Infinite Light, the finite quality of the way the words appear cannot represent this source of wisdom in all its complexity. - a seeing with the heart, which means a direct perception of the ideas is required for this understanding. Rabbi Yitzchak Luria (1534-1572), known as the Arizal, is the central figure of Kabbalah as it is studied today. The Arizal explained that the mysteries of the Torah are a "Kabbalah"- literally "something that is received". It is not a knowledge that can be attained through the finite quality of the letters, but a perception that must be "received" from a master who himself received from one before him. The perception of the esoteric tradition is then a merging of spirits with the Divine which, by its very essence, cannot be condensed into letters. The Arizal unfolds before us a hidden dimension of the stories and laws of the Torah, showing how they reflect the inner dynamics of reality and how our knowledge and observance of the Torah is crucial to the proper functioning of creation. In this book, the reader is offered a selection of these teachings. They are presented with interpolated explanations that clarify the original text's terse prose and a commentary that shows how these sometimes obscure teachings can be applied to everyday life.

In this volume, IF I FORGET THEE, the Ben Ish Hal looks at Jerusalem and the Holy Land, their unique spiritual qualifies, and the reason for the special place they hold in the hearts of the Jewish people. He visits the Holy Temple and explains the meaning of its kohanim and levi'im, its sacrifices and incense, its vessels and vestments, its glory and destruction. And he leaves us with a message of hope as we await the building of the Third Temple, may it be speedily in our days.

The Hebrew Letters (Teachings of Kabbalah)

By Yitzchak Ginsburgh

Despite its apparent simplicity, the Hebrew alef-beit (alphabet) contains within it the deepest secrets of Creation. In this book, Rabbi Ginsburgh unveils before the modern English reader some of the infinite dimensions hidden beneath the surface of the holy letters.The Kabbalistic classic, Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Formation), teaches that creative consciousness exists in three states (space, time, and soul), which are reflected in the form, name, and numerical value of each letter. Rabbi Yisrael Ba'al Shem Tov (founder of the Chassidic movement) taught that each letter also exists in each of the three dimensions of Worlds, Souls, and Divinity. Through Rabbi Ginsburgh's treatment, based on these teachings, the alef-beit emerges from this work as the key to opening up the entire panorama of Jewish spirituality.

The Months of Tamuz and AV: Embracing Brokenness - 17th of Tamuz, Tisha B'Av, & Tu B'Av

By Dovber Pinson

Each month and season of the year, radiates with distinct Divine qualities and unique opportunities for growth and Tikkun. The summer month of Tamuz and Av contain the longest and hottest days of the year. The raised temperature is indicative of a corresponding spiritual heat, a time of harsher judgement and potential destruction, such as the destructions of the first and second Beis HaMikdash, which began on the 17th of Tamuz and culminated on the 9th and 10th of Av. A few days later, on Tu b'Av, the darkness is transformed and reveals the greatest light and possibility for new life. During these summer months of Tamuz and Av we embrace our brokenness so that we can heal and transform darkness into light.

Letters of Fire: Mystical Insights into the Hebrew Language

By Matityahu Glazerson

This intriguing study explores the wondrous world of hidden meanings in the letters and words of the Sacred Tongue.

Rabbi Glazerson opens a window on this realm of splendor where even the very form of each letter has profound significance. The relationships between the letters, their sequence, the Kabbalistic concepts inherent in various words and phrases, are all examined and elucidated here.

On the Study of Chasidus: a Trilogy of Chasidic Essays

On the Study of Chasidus: a Trilogy of Chasidic Essays

By Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn

A Trilogy of Chasidic Essays, Some Aspects of Chabad Chasidism, on the Teachings of Chasidus, on Learning Chasidus. Eastern European Jewry in the eighteenth century had not yet recovered from the ravages of the pogroms of 1648-1649. The people were depressed spiritually and impoverished materially. Ignorance and despondency (the latter caused by the former) deadened the spirit of the people; they had no life in this world and could expect little better in the hereafter.Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov embarked on the ambitious program of elevating the spirit of the Jews, teaching them, encouraging them to serve G-d with sincerity and joy, emphasizing the homely virtues of the simple folk. His efforts met with conspicuous success. Countless thousands turned to him and Chasidus - as his new movement was called  for spiritual sustenance. It was no less than a major renaissance of the Jewish spirit. As might be expected, opponents were not lacking. Opposition concentrated primarily in Lithuania, the center of Talmudic scholarship. Chasidus was accused of attempting to supplant Torah learning as the sine qua non of Judaism. Memory of radical movements threatening the very existence of Judaism rendered any departure from the norm highly suspect. Not until the time of the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, who synthesized Chasidic fervor and worship with Lithuanian rationality and learning, could the movement make any significant inroads in the camp of the mitnagdim, the opponents of Chasidus. The Alter RebbeÂs intellectual school of Chasidus was called Chabad. "The Baal Shem Tov demonstrated that everyone can serve G-d; the Alter Rebbe taught how everyone can serve G-d," describes their relative contributions. While the Chasidic movement suffered a terrible blow  as did all the Jewish people  during the Second World War, it has shown remarkable vitality and viability, striking firm and productive roots on every continent. Interest in it, then, is not historical alone or theoretical, but immediate to any serious student of Judaism. Chasidus, including Chabad, has been the subject of a great many studies in several languages. However, few of the sources were ever translated into English, and for the formidable subject matter, coupled with the specific definitions and connotations of Chabad terminology deter many potential students from exploring this field of study. This essay discusses the general nature and contribution of Chabad. It is introductory in nature, and addresses itself primarily to the basic character of Chasidus, and its place within a worship focused on the total service of G-d.

Majestic Bride - Lecha Dodi 5689 and 5714 (Hebrew / English) (Chasidic Heritage) (English and Hawaiian Edition)

By Menachem M Schneerson

Chasidic discourses by Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn the Frierdiker Rebbe & Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson the Lubavitcher Rebbe Translated & Annotated by: Rabbi Ari Solish, Rabbi Avraham D. Vaisfiche Prior to delivering the discourse Lecha Dodi at the wedding of his daughter, Rebbetzin Chaya Moussia, in 1928, Rabbi Yosef Y. Schneersohn of Lubavitch related that at a wedding, the souls of the bride s and groom s ancestors descend from their heavenly abodes and join in the celebration. He then added that the discourse contains teachings of their ancestors, each of the previous Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbes. By repeating their teachings, the Rebbe explained, he was in effect extending an invitation for them to participate at the wedding. This is the basis for the Chabad-Lubavitch custom that the groom recites the discourse at the Kabbalat Panim reception. In 1953, his son-in-law and successor, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, delivered an expository discourse on his father-in-law s discourse beginning with the same verse, Lecha Dodi. Twenty five years later, in honor of his fiftieth wedding anniversary, he edited and published this discourse. Subsequently, this discourse has been recited by many at their wedding, also as a symbolic invitation to the Rebbe (and the previous Rebbes) to participate in the wedding celebration. The present publication of these discourses will surely be of great benefit to those wishing to gain greater insight into the fundamental concepts articulated in these wedding treatises.

In the Shadow of the Ladder: Introductions to Kabbalah

By Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag

This authentic translation into English of two Kabbalah texts written in Hebrew asks deeply personal questions about the essence of an individual and the existence of a soul. Discussing the experience of an individual and the role of humans in creation, it offers an understanding of the places of evil, suffering, compassion, and joy in the full experience of divine love. The Kabbalah is presented here not as an esoteric study limited to the divinely inspired, but as a universal pathway of the spirit. Coming from the West rather than the East, this book fills a long-awaited gap as it teaches an essential spirituality within the conceptual framework of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
