Vayikach Hashem… Vayanichaihu BiGan Eden (ויקח ה”א את האדם) 5712-1

Class One. Olom, Shana, Nefesh, the structure of the Sefer Yetzirah. Olom means worldliness, concealment, dimensions. Three levels 1) physical, 2) spiritual connected to physical, 3) entirely spiritual, but as it comes into Understanding it takes on form (worldliness). Nefesh, Godliness removed from any and all form, higher than a ‘Klal’, it is the Plainness…

Lehuvin Inyan Simchas Torah (להבין ענין שמחת) 5712-2

Class Two. This class talks about Simchas Torah. We dance and bring Joy to the Torah. The question is who are we to do so, especially on the level of the Torah called Matana (a gift). The answer is that we are masters over all levels of light until (literally) Atzmus, and we are therefore…

Lehuvin Inyan Simchas Torah (להבין ענין שמחת) 5712-1

Class One. This first class on this Ma’amar discusses the Biur (philosophy/ mysticism) of the Ma’amar. Neshamos are called ‘Kol HaNikra BiShmi…’. This means that all of Godliness (anything other than Him) even the highest light, is brought forth by Neshamos. In addition since we emerge as separate beings (as opposed to Torah, which is…

Vayikach Hashem… Vayanichaihu BiGan Eden (ויקח ה”א את האדם) 5712-2

Class Two. In the Avodah of Ahava there is also Olom (Ahava Murgash), Nefesh (Bilti Murgash), and Shana (Sechel which is in between Murgash and Bilti Murgash). On this basis he explains the need for Shmira (from the Murgash element) even in Gan Eden.

ViAile Hamishpatim (ואלה המשפטים) 5711-2

Class Two. Moshe actually is needed to give Da’as even to the Neshamos of ‘Zera Adam’ (Atzilus). In other words they also need Moshe Rabbeinu.

Basi Legani 5711 (Long Version) (02)

Chapters 2-3. The Seventh is most beloved. As the beginning of the undoing of the divine plan is most critical, so is the end of the correction of that divine plan most essential. The real credit, however, goes to the first (Avrohom), who started the correction. The seventh gets to finish his initiative and is…

V’Kibel Hayehudim (וקבל יהודים) Muga 5711-1

Three levels of Mesiras Nefesh: 1) מסירת נפש בכח- At Mattan Torah through נעשה ונשמע and כפה עליהם הר כגיגית. 2) מסירת נפש בפועל מצד הנשמה- at Chanuka, this sacrifice has an order. 3) מסירת נפש בפועל מצד הגוף- at Purim. This involves הפקר total abandon. This level of sacrifice is the necessary…

Ki Tisa (כי תשא) 5711-2

Class Two. In this class we learn about the need for Moshe Rabbeinu: Every Jew has in his Neshama Emuna but it can be makif, like the thief who prays that Hashem grants him success at theft. The internalization of faith, comes from Moshe who because of his oneness with Atzmus can strengthen our faith….
