13 Sivan 5782 (June 12, 2022)

This week's Parashah is Shelach-Lecha, which literally means "Send forth." Hashem asks Moses to send forth spies so that they may investigate the Promised Land. When the spies return they give their report and the people are terrified by the news. When faced with the prospect of having to battle for freedom, the people cry out "if only we had died in the land of Egypt! Or if only we could die in this wilderness!" And here you have the neverending human condition of choosing the easy path over the path that helps us to grow and transform. As we are faced with increasing racism in our world, we may feel a little like the people when they heard the news of the spies. It is up to us to not give up, we must stand firm as people of faith and shine light and love in this world. Our ancestors had to endure so that they could reach the land G-d had promised to them. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." Again, it is our duty to shine lght and love in the face of any form of darkness or hatred. Olam Chesed Yibaneh - "I will build this world from love, and you must build this world from love, and if we build this world from love, then G-d will build this world from love."

Tikun HaKlali
Rebbe Nachman taught that the Tikun HaKlali can rectify all spiritual and physical flaws or maladies. We can use the Tikun HaKlali for either personal teshuvah (return to Hashem) or to help bring about the Tikun Olam (correction of the world.) It is a very powerful service for healing and we will pray it to heal ourselves and the world. Beginning this Tuesday, we will start offering a Tikun HaKlali service following our regularly scheduled service every Tuesday. We invite you to join us. CLICK HERE to go to our events page.

Tehilim Schedules
We have added Weekly, Monthly and Shabbat schedules to our Tehilim page for those who wish to follow a schedule of completing Tehilim. We are continuing to transliterate and translate Tehilim also and adding them to the page as we complete them. Go to our TEHILIM page to see the new schedules.

The word צדקה "tzedakah" in Hebrew often is translated as charity, but it actually comes from the root צדק "tzedek" which means righteousness. The addition of the letter ה "Hei" connects righteousness to Malchut. Many people say "giving" tzedakah, but the more appropriate phrase is "doing" tzedakah. 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, especially when we receive it from an organization that helps us to grow spiritually. We thank you in advance for your generosity and support. Click Here to make a donation.

Your Hebrew Name
At the end of the Amidah, we whisper a verse from the Tanach which is associated with our Hebrew name. Would you like to know your Hebrew name and the verse that corresponds to your name? Or would you like us to help you choose a Hebrew name and even have a certificate with your Hebrew name and verse? Email Us for more information.
