Rabbi Avraham ben Yaakov is visiting Britain May 19-June 18. Azamra's Jerusalem office will be closed during this period, but our study email series will continue.
We wish you CHAG SAME'ACH -- a truly joyous festival -- this coming SHAVUOT, Season of the Giving of the Torah (Saturday night, Sunday-Monday May 23-25). May this be an opening to true redemption for you, for all Israel and for all lovers of HaShem throughout the world.
Balance (Aramaic: "Math'kela") is a key concept in the kabbalistic explanation of the repair of creation. Understanding its meaning can help us come to terms with negative aspects of our lives so as to find true and lasting joy. Sunday May 10, 2015
Alef Beit Part IV
As we begin this auspicious week of spiritual ascent, we will take a wider perspective on the Alef Beit examining some of the allegorical teachings about the letters contained in the Talmud and Zohar. Sunday May 3, 2015
Alef Beit Part III We examine how the basic building blocks of the Alef-Beit -- the dot and the line -- combine to shape the various different letters of the script of the Torah scroll, and we will consider some of the hidden secrets of these combinations. Sunday April 26, 2015
Alef Beit Part II
We now consider the "5 exits of the mouth" and the different groups of "mother", "doubled" and "simple" letters, and then focus on the forms of the letters Aleph, Beit, Dalet, Heh and some other related letters. Sunday April 19, 2015
Alef Beit Part I We now start all over, going back to the beginning and studying the Hebrew letters on which the tapestry of the Torah is woven. Today we consider the foundations of all writing, and the mysteries of the dot, the center-point (nekudah - yod) and the line (kav - vav) which extends from it. Sunday April 12, 2015
