Nitzavim
22 Elul 5782 (September 18, 2022)

As we enter the last week of Elul and the last week of 5782, let us reflect upon all that has happened in the last year in our community.

We have been an online congregation since Rosh HaShanah of 2005. At the start of the journey, we used a conference call system to host services for Shabbat and holidays. Later we moved on to Ustream, and in recent years we have used Facebook Live. During the last year, we have transitioned to YouTube for streaming our services. We also have been using Zoom for our classes, which has helped in bridging the distance between members of our community and given them the opportunity to interact with one another and their Rabbi. Before COVID-19, we were mainly a congregation that served people who lived far from a synagogue community. During the pandemic, many started to realize that they can study and take part in services from the comfort of their own home. In October of 2020, we officially became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Some of the services we offer:

AVODAT HASHEM - Originally, we only did Friday night and holiday services with occasional Shabbat morning services. We have increased our services to complete Shabbat services (Kabbalat Shabbat, Shacharit, Minchah, and Motzaei Shabbat) and complete services for every holiday in the Jewish calendar. Our services are meaningful, and we strive to provide onscreen graphics that will enhance the participant’s experience.

KABBALISTIC STUDIES - During the past year, we have offered Kabbalah classes, Hebrew classes, and a Living Torah class. We have also added additional Kabbalah and Hebrew classes for those members of our congregation who live in the United Kingdom and Europe. We have also added private studies for those who wish to study one on one with their Rabbi.

KABBALAH4ALL SIDDUR - We have completely revised our siddur and it is now in English and Spanish. We continue to work on many sections and projects related to our prayer book. We are the only congregation with a fully online siddur with Kabbalistic Kavanot. Though it has been recommended that we have a monthly subscription to use our siddur, we have decided against it to make it accessible to everyone who wishes to use it.

None of this would be possible without your meaningful contribution. Our congregation relies on the generosity of our members and visitors to ensure that we can continue to provide these services, studies, and events to everyone who wishes to connect and make their spiritual home with us.

We appreciate and greatly value your commitment to our community, as demonstrated through your contributions throughout the year. Kabbalah4All is a community like no other, and more importantly, it is the place you choose to call home to connect, study and be part of a Kabbalistic Jewish community. We thank you in advance for your support during the new year and helping to make Kabbalah4All "A Place of Prayer For All People."

We Invite You To Join Us For The Days of Awe
We invite you to join our community for the High Holidays: Rosh HaShanah, the Days of Awe, and Yom Kippur. For our full schedule of services please visit our YAMIM NORAIM page.

Selichot
Used each day during the month, Selichot gives us the opportunity to unite ourselves with the Creator's Light and with the consciousness of selichah סליחה, which means forgiveness. During the Selichot service we confront our past negative actions and ask for forgiveness. This is a vital preparation for Rosh HaShanah, the Days of Awe, and Yom Kippur. The best time to for Selichot is between midnight and dawn, for it is during this time that Divine mercy is available. We invite you to join us for Selichot each night, Mondays-Fridays during Elul @ 12:35 AM EDT (In some time zones this will be Sunday-Thursday nights). Click Here for the Selichot portion of our K4A Siddur.

Tzedakah
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.
