Rosh Hashanah: Inviting the King Within

Rosh Hashanah: Inviting the King Within

Join Rabbi Avraham Shira as he explores from a kabbalistic view the concept of God as the King of the world. How in our day and age can we internalize what this truly means? What should Malchut mean to us today?

Rosh Hashanah: Inviting the King Within: Lesson
Class description

Shalom, Welcome to a new zman at Webyeshiva.  Tonight we begin a deep exploration of Kingship as a preparation for Rosh HaShanah, the day we crown Hashem as our king.  We will begin with some basic ideas of kingship and look first to Torah 56 of Likutei Moharan and Rabbi Nachman’s emphasis on the ‘usage’ of Kingship and how that applies to every person.  And our goal will be to understand how we, as human beings made in God’s image to serve the Creator, form and refine our use of power in a world ‘not ours’, but given to us to ‘work and guard’.

Look forward to seeing all of you.

Shalom and Welcome, tonight we will continue exploring the idea of ‘inviting the king within,’ examining the quality of kingship as an internal experience of God’s presence in all our affairs, even our organs, our blood, our breath.  It is an ever-inviting process that we enact and repeat throughout our lives as we expand our faith in God’s total presence.  Look forward to seeing you there.

Shalom and Welcome.

Tonight we will explore the idea of ‘Inviting Kingship’ within and the quality of humility.  With sources from various writings and stories, we will look at this complex relationship between power and the hiding of power, revealing and and not revealing oneself, and making a place within which we put aside for our King.  Look forward to seeing all of you there.

Welcome.  Tonight, before Rosh HaShana, we ask where and how do I let the King within?

The ultimate answer:

The W0rld to Come.

Have I really accepted this idea completely.

Am I ready?  Will I ever be?

Come and join us and confront the ultimate reality.
