Course Description

In this course we will explore the nature of miracles and the miracles of nature that the Jewish people experienced as they were preparing to leave the slavery of Egypt, as well as the nature of faith.

 

In the nature of miracles we will explore the many levels and types of miracles in Jewish History and their connections and distinctions.

 

In the miracles of nature we will look at Creation and nature as the greatest miracles of all. We will ask the question: which came first- faith or miracle?

Pesach: The Miraculous Nature of Faith

Shalom and welcome to our two week series on miracles, nature and faith.

Tommorow night we will begin with some basic definitions, which will serve us as we move through several texts from Chassidut and Kabbalah on the nature of miracles, and in short, with help, we will begin to see that Nature itself is miraculous, especially when framed by the paradigms of the Tree of Life, the Self=healing Universe and the outstanding role of man as the link between the laws of nature and the abrogation of that nature through the gifts of faith and prayer.  We will also begin building the ladders of concepts that lead us towards (or away) from the potential to live in the miracles of redemption and Passover as patterned by the Torah and the freedom from the exile in Egyppt.

Look forward to seeing yout there,

Avraham Shira

Pesach: The Miraculous Nature of Faith

Shalom and welcome.  Tonight we will learn according the Maggid of Mezrich the secret of miracles, of how they occur to us, and how we can instigate the revelation of the miraclous, the change of nature.

We will also examine the necessary spiritual 'posture' that induces the Providence and Lifeforce to descend upon us.  As R. Nachman taught last week, G-d does miracles with us in order to strengthen our faith.  Thus we must confront our limitations of faith.  By doing so we receive greater confidence in Hashem.  And this leads to 'when we do his will, he will do ours.   The essence of miracles is then the revelation of his mastery of all situations, and how our minds, thoughts and feelings proceed into physical reality before our eyes.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Avraham Shira
