The Exodus: Creation, Destruction, & Tikun

The Exodus: Creation, Destruction, & Tikun

In Sefer Bereishit, the Ramban explains how the ten ma’amarot or utterances in which the world was created are directly related to each of the ten plagues. With the former He created and with the latter he destroyed. Join Rabbi Avraham Shira as he shows one by one the parallels between the ten ma’amarot and ten plagues and explains each one’s path to restoration.

Class description

Shalom and welcome to a new zman.  This winter we will explore some of the deepest mysteries of Creation and its opposite, as reflected in the teachings of our Sages surrounding the Plagues and the Redemption from Egypt, all of course with an eye on the final Redemption and Tikun Olam.

Tonight we will begin with the Creation of Light and its roots in the Kabbalah, and also look at the opposite of light, darkness and how this is reflected in our conception of the past present and future of our  relationship to God and Torah.

Look forward to seeing you there,

Avraham Shira

Shalom to all, tonight we continue exploring creation,destruction and restoration as a paradigm of the Jewish people, exile and redemption, a universal process woven into all life, a dialectic we see throughout history, especially in the ten plagues of egypt as the tools of God’s returning etypt to tohu and bohu, all of leading to the receiving of the Torah at Sinai  to return Am Yisrael to the pristine perfection found at the beginning of creation.

Come and share your insights and inspiration,

Shalom and Welcome.  Tomorrow night we will continue the examination of a Torah dyalectic, the transition from Creation, to Destruction to Redemption as reflected in the Jewish sojourn in Egypt.  We will look further at the 10 statements of Creation, the 10 Plagues of Egypt, the 10 allusions to Idol Worship and the 10 commandments as the ultimate source for the repair of the destruction brought upon Egypt.

Look forward to seeing all of you there.

Shalom,

Tonight we will look at the 10 Plagues in Egypt from perspective of the Kabbalah of God’s names and how each of them is a force for both goodness and releasing judgment on Egypt.  This learning will touch on many new concepts from the Arizal and other later Kabbalists.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Avraham Shira
