Yael Shahar presents:
“B’reishit takes us into a frame of reference that is often
inaccessible to us nowadays. It leads us into the deepest layers
of human consciousness, before we were recognizably human.
While paleontology can show us to ourselves only from the
outside, B’reishit takes us inside our own seminal moments
and shows us to ourselves from the position of what might have been.”

Rabbi Shagalov provides weekly Torah insights at: http://torah4blind.org/
Since 1992, Enlightenment for the Blind has been disseminating the teachings of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of Lubavitch, to the Jewish Blind and visually impaired Jews, on how we can all prepare ourselves and the world around us for the coming Redemption by Moshiach, through increasing in acts of goodness and kindness.
Even though there are many organizations around the world, that are dedicated to serve the needs of the blind and visually impaired, Enlightenment for the Blind is the only Jewish charity that publishes a weekly Torah digest for the Jewish blind and visually impaired Jewish people.
Muslim Leader Warns Arabs of “Jewish Plan” to Build the Holy Temple.
The Mufti of Jerusalem has announced that the Jewish people intend to build the Holy Temple on the Temple Mount, now the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Ironically, while the Israeli government never breathes a word about the Holy Temple (except as a joke…see post: “Talk of the Holy Temple in Israeli Parliament,” 4/7/13), it is uppermost in the minds of Muslims who control the Al-Aqsa Mosque. In truth, the Holy Temple is a major milestone in the process of Redemption, and is something Jews pray for three times a day. There seems to be an awareness in the Muslim world we are in the era of Redemption (see post: “Muslims Interview Rabbi Lau about Moshiach,”11/23/11) and they think that the rebuildng of the Holy Temple is imminent. May it be so!

Yael Shahar presents Language, Dress, and Names – Jewish continuity in a nutshell
“We’ve all heard that “By clinging to our names, our distinctive dress,
and our language, we merited rescue from Egypt.” The connection
between these three things and the redemption from Egypt appears
nowhere explicitly in our texts, and yet the Chatam Sofer singled out
these three as the key to Jewish continuity. But why these particular things?”
Yael Shahar presents Death & Transcendence – a Jewish perspective
Is there room in Judaism for the quest to transcend life, to let go of all the ties to earthly existence? The yearning for transcendence has been embodied in the Kabbalah, and later in the Hassidic movement which grew out of the attempt to actualize the Kabbalistic worldview. However, the mystical tendency has usually been marginalized in practice. Why? The answer may lie in the connection between death and transcendence.
|Yael Shahar presents Gemara Sanhedrin 73a – Saving the victim or saving the perpetrator?|
Whimsical gleanings from studying Gemara with a one-eyed cat as a havruta.That concludes this edition.
