Shalom ans Blessings;

Tomorrow night, we will continue our new series on Meditation and the Aleph Beit.  We will return to the Zohar Breishit, and the amazing insights of Rav Hamnuna Saba, a contemporary of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, and who is buried near Rashbi on Mount Meron.  This piece describes the letters almost as living entities, and their power is something intrinsic in those who learn, pray and meditate in Hebrew.  Rabbi Nachman teaches that these letters, words, and ideas feed the mind new soul power.  LM 34.   Join us for a class and live meditation on WebYeshiva.org 9pm.. Israel.

Welcome.  Tomorrow night we will continue  God’s interviews the letters of the holy Aleph-Bet.  Afterward, we will continue our practice of meditation on these contractions of God’s wisdom, as Rabbi Nachman says, into the physical realm.  Look forward to seeing you there.

Shalom, welcome to our Meditation series on the Aleph Bet, according to Rav Hamnuna Saba and the Zohar haKadosh.  Tomorrow night we will continue to see how each of the letters defend their positions that they should be the first ‘letter’ in the Torah, an esteemed position throughout eternity.  The letters Yud, Tet, Zayin and Vav will each present their arguments before the King of Kings.  What will each say that may argue their place in the holy linguistic code of Creation?  Come and see.

Shalom.  Welcome again to our exploration of Meditation on the Aleph-Beit through the eyes of the Zohar and Rabbi Hamnunah Saba.  Tomorrow night we should complete this exceptional discourse as the Zohar records God’s conversations with the letters Dalet, Gimel, Bet and Aleph.  Each letter desires to be the opening letter of the Torah.  Which will be chosen?  Come and see the amazing display of personality invested in the living text of the Torah letters.

Shalom.  Tonight we will look into the Zohar for the secret of the Letters that appeared on the Breastplate = Choshen of the Kohain Gadol in the Beit HaMikdash, the same Choshen that King David and others used to consult with God before important events for Am Yisrael.  What was the significance of these letters and their purpose in communicating God’s will to the Jewish people?  What significance do they have for us today?  What does the Torah mean when it says, ‘Write them on the tablets of your heart’?   This class promises to reveal many important steps in our understanding of meditation on the letters of the Holy Alef-Bet.  Look forward to seeing you there.

Shalom and welcome to our last class of the series.  Tonight’s teaching can be called, ‘The Letters of a Blessing.”  We will learn the kaballist placements of the words of a blessing according to the divine names of the human form, in the order that represents the map of God’s light as it desscends into the world through our blessings .  This class is fundamental for understanding the union of the upper and lower worlds and how the letters of making a blessing become the conduits of blessing itself from God to man.  W will meditate and make a blessing tonight according to these teachings of the Rashash, and I encourage each of you to have an item of food or drink you enjoy that you can bless on after we learn and meditate and make our blessings.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Shalom and welcome to a New Zman at Webyeshiva.  We’re very excited to continued our meditation course on the Aleph Bet.  Each night is a mini seminar of learning, meditating, writing and sharing about our experiences in Jewish meditation.  Tomorrow night we will begin with a famous piece in Kabbalah literature called, ‘The Otiot of  Rabbi Akiva.’  This teaching will bring home the Midrash that says in Breishit Rabba, ‘When the wind blows, it blows in Hebrew.’  This mystical idea will guide us as we become more intimate to what the letters of the Aleph Bet really are:  The building blocks of Creation, or, in modern parlance, energy maps of how God creates and communicates to the world.

Look forward to seeing all of you there.

Shalom, welcome again to our series on Meditation and the Aleph Bet.   Tonight we will continue with the Letters of Rabbi Akiva, and how each letter is a symbol of action and importance in the life of human beings, and how the original aleph bet was a composite of divine wisdom expressed in shape, sound and number, and how our consciousness is a processor of these three features that enables us to use language, sound and number to communicate not only on th earthly plane, but to transcend lower consciousness and approach the upper levels of our souls, and their respective places in the worlds.

 

Look forward to seeing you there.

Shalom and Welcome.  Tonight we continue exploring the letters as vehicles of meditation.  We have reached the Gimel, the third letter, a letter of synthesis, the power of giving, the levels of giving, the receiving that is really giving, and how in meditation we both give and receive in our relationship to the Creator.  Look forward to seeing all of you there.  Avraham Shira
