Metzora, 2 Nissan 5779
April 7, 2019

Nissan is the first month of the Jewish calendar and represents newness. Our sages tell us that Ein Sof designed the world in Tishrei and brought it into physical reality in Nissan. This is a month of lovingkindness, a month of compassion. As we prepare ourselves for the energy of Pesach, the ultimate demonstration of the Creator's mercy towards us, we should ask how we can reach out to others. How can we show mercy and lovingkindness? We are reminded by the Kabbalists that Egypt is a code word for EGO. The energy of Pesach gives us total freedom from slavery to our ego nature. But if we hold on to ego, how can we experience freedom? Focus this week on lovingkindness and on how you can practice it towards everyone.

Shavua tov,

Shabbat HaGadol
Shabbat HaGadol (The Great Shabbat) commemorates the 10th day of Nissan, when the Hebrew slaves took the lambs that they were going to offer for Pesach and tied them up outside their homes, to keep until they offered it on the 14th (Ex. 12:3-6). According to tradition, this was a dangerous thing to do, because Egyptians worshipped sheep, but miraculously, instead of slaughtering the Hebrews, the Egyptians instead fought with each other over whether the Hebrews should be sent away already.

The First Twelve Days of Nissan
The first twelve days of the month of Nissan are very special. Each day represents a different month in the Kabbalistic calendar. During these first twelve days, it is important for us to connect to the consciousness of each month and follow the tips so that we can be proactive. Our effort to be proactive on these first twelve days determines our success of being proactive for the whole year. Click Here for a handout with daily meditations for the Twelve Days of Nissan. The first day of Nissan begins on Shabbat, April 6, 2019.  For more information about the month of Nissan, visit our This Month's Energy page.

Support Kabbalah4All
The word "tzedakah" in Hebrew means charity, but actually the word is derived from the root word which means righteousness, justice or fairness. Giving is not viewed as a generous act, it is simply an act of righteousness and justice. Tzedakah is in many ways an exchange of energy and is a visible expression of gratitude in this world for that which we have received. We rely on the generosity of others so that we may make our siddurim (prayer books) and other resources available for all, as well as continue to offer meaningful studies and inspiring services. Please help support our community by making a DONATION. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
Perek Shirah Page
Perek Shirah is an ancient text of unknown authorship, although many commentaries attribute it to King David. It takes the form of a list of eighty-four elements of the natural world. Everything in creation praises its Creator. The lessons can assist us on our journey. Rabbi Eliezer said, Anyone who involves themselves with Perek Shirah in this world, merits saying it in the next world. Kabbalah4All will be working on a new photo each week with a verse until we complete all 84. Click Here to go to our new Perek Shirah page.
