Kabbalah Thought for this week

"The Light of The Creator is endless, every present, and it never changes. Darkness only exists when our Lower World disconnects from the Upper World. Disconnection occurs each time we succumb to the will of our ego and treat others with anything less than human dignity. Connection to the Upper World takes place when a person master the drives of their ego and yields to the longings of their souls."

Yom HaZikaron 2024 / יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן 5784

Israeli Memorial Day 🇮🇱

Yom HaZikaron for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Sunday, 12 May 2024 and ends at nightfall on Monday, 13 May 2024.

Israeli Memorial Day. Remembers those who died in the War of Independence and other wars in Israel. The full name of the holiday is Yom HaZikaron LeHalalei Ma’arakhot Yisrael ul’Nifge’ei Pe’ulot HaEivah (Hebrew: יוֹם הזִּכָּרוֹן לְחַלְלֵי מַעֲרָכוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל וּלְנִפְגְעֵי פְּעֻלּוֹת הָאֵיבָה), Memorial Day for the Fallen Soldiers of the Wars of Israel and Victims of Actions of Terrorism. Although Yom Hazikaron is normally observed on the 4th of Iyyar, it may be moved earlier or postponed if observance of the holiday (or Yom HaAtzma’ut, which always follows it) would conflict with Shabbat.



Yom HaAtzma’ut 2024 / יוֹם הָעַצְמָאוּת 5784

Israeli Independence Day 🇮🇱

Yom HaAtzma’ut for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Monday, 13 May 2024 and ends at nightfall on Tuesday, 14 May 2024.

Israeli Independence Day. Commemorates the declaration of independence of Israel in 1948. Although Yom HaAtzma’ut is normally observed on the 5th of Iyyar, it may be moved earlier or postponed if observance of the holiday (or Yom HaZikaron, which always precedes it) would conflict with Shabbat.
