Rabbi Shmuel's newsletter for week of 15 October 2023.




Kabbalah Thought for this week

"Noah was given his name bedcause it was a direct reflection of his spiritual character. 'Noah" is derived from the Hebrew word Nechmana which means to console.... Our name, too, is our bridge and link to the Creator. The name is like a strand of spiritual DNA that motivates and gives rise to our personal attributes, out inner character, and our mission in life."
