Kabbalah, Shalom Bayit & the Avot

In this course join Rabbi Avraham Shira as he explores the relationships of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, the holy couples that God used to create Am Yisrael. Through the  Kabbalah we will discover what the Zohar means when it says that the Avot ‘are The Chariots of the Divine Presence.’

Kabbalah, Shalom Bayit & the Avot: Lesson
Class description

Shalom and welcome to a new zman at Webyeshiva.org. Tomorrow night we will continue the series we began this summer, exploring the relationships of the ‘couples’ in the Torah. We spend an extensive time on Adam and Chava, learning from their lessons to our own in the area of shalom bayis.

Now we will begin to look at the Avot, the great Patriarchs and their wives and the details the Torah and the Sages give us about their relationships, through the lens of the Kabbalah and the understanding afforded us by the Sages in the Midrash and Talmud.

We will begin with Avraham and Sarah and the idea of listening, the many levels of listening and the benefits and difficulties of acquiring this extremely needed gift and developing that gift as a skill in all our relationships. I don’t thin we can overstate the importance of listening in our generation. Look forward to seeing all of you there.

Class description

Shalom and welcome to our look at the relationships of the Avot through the eyes of Torah and Kabbalah.
Tonight we will look at the meeting of Sarah and Abraham with the three angels who come with different messages for the patriarchs.
We will focus on the distinctions of how Sarah and Abraham respond to the promise that they will have a child of their own, and the nature of their communication about this. We will ask questions about faith and this manner of divine intervention and interpretation, and the relationship between Creator and Creation, especially focusing on the phenomena of prophecy.

Look forward to seeing all of you,
Avraham Shira
