Kabbalah Thought for this week

"To achieve a higher level of spirituality and existence, we sometimes need to "borrow" Light from the Creator in order to use it to awaken and arouse even grater Light in our lives and in this world. This is similar to a businessman borrowing money from a bak for the prupose of building a successful business. In other, you need money in order to make money."



A very poignant prayer that gives us comfort:

Pesach 2024 / פֶּסַח 5784

Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread 🫓🍷

Pesach for Hebrew Year 5784 begins in the Diaspora at sundown on Monday, 22 April 2024 and ends at nightfall on Tuesday, 30 April 2024.

Passover (Hebrew: פֶּסַח Pesach) commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.
