Kabbalah Thought for this week

"We have free will to choose our path in life Two paths are always available - the path of darkness, personified by Egypt, and the path Light, denoted by the people Israel and by Torah. We have no control or influence over the conseqences and rewards that accompany these paths. We can, however, choose the path that we walk. Our self-destructive impulses impel us to constanly choose the negative and the negative energy blanketing our world often blinds us to the folly of our choices. We study Torah to brighten our spiritual landscape."



A very poignant prayer that gives us comfort:

Shabbat Parah for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Friday, 29 March 2024 and ends at nightfall on Saturday, 30 March 2024. This corresponds to Parashat Tzav.

Shabbat Parah (“Sabbath [of the] red heifer” שבת פרה) takes place on the Shabbat before Shabbat HaChodesh, in preparation for Passover.

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.

It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.
