  1. I once heard that the Torah have been existing even before the universe was created. Does it mean that the stories in the Bible like Adam and Eve, the Great Flood on Noahs days did not happened on the stated days or year in the Bible.. Were these stories not real in the physical world.

  2. Hello dear Rav,

    do you think world war 3 will start this year?

    Thank you

  3. Hi, I just watched a video where Rav Laitman answers a question from a female viewer regarding whether God exists. I had to watch it 3 times because It seems that at first he says “no”, then that God exist only for those who attained spitituality, the Laws of nature, etc. I am a little confused, because even the opening verses of the Sefer Yetzira define the Creator, or the Etz Chaim has whole chapters on the properties of The Light (the Creator?), etc. So up until now, i felt that The Creator exists whether one attains spirituality, or believe in it or not. Was Rav Laitman making a relativistic approach as to what constitutes existence or Reality?

  5. Hello Rav,
    I understand that we are still very, very far from reaching spirituality. But still, we learn, and try, and pray, and make efforts. and still, in spite of this, nothing in this world gets even a little bit better. we don’t see results for the better, even a tiniest bit. do we even help the world by doing what we are doing, by studying, trying to connect, making efforts? If we wouldn’t have done any of it would the world, the humanity, Israel be in even a worse state than this?

    Thank you very much

  6. I have several questions regarding “connections” and love thy neighbor as thyself.

    During the World Congress 2018, you asked a question about the connections “between” the friends, not “among” the friends. What should this connection look like? In various diagrams you have drawn, each point is directly connected to each of the other points, but the references are often talking about the connection to the center of the group. Are these depictions different?

    Are these connections between individuals authentic and genuine or more superficial, given the connection is with the Creator? What is our connection to members in other tens (or members of former tens)? To what extent should we love thy neighbor as thyself? Is it only in word and intention, genuine friendship, or something else?

  7. I enjoy reading your opinions.

    My question: Your teachings seem to stop at Hod. That is, an intellectualization of problems and solutions. How does your philosophy interact with Netzach? Where is the beauty of Tipharet? Laws come down from Gevura. Have you reached that stage in your meditations?

    Thank you for the opportunity to ask this question.


  8. Dear Dr Laitman!
    As a teacher “TO THE CHANGE THE WORLD CHANGE MAN”” Knowing “JEWISH VALUES” what is your personal opinion, plus a spiritual reason concerning the African Migrants whom “THE STATE OF ISRAEL” wants to deport! Are you in favor, against and why?

  9. If only a group will bring us to the creator, why do all of the teachings of the Zohar and the Torah tell us about individuals who spoke to yhwh alone! Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Noah and Moses/ they all were alone in their connections. They all preached to a people instead of learning alongside of them. They all traveled far to hear Him, speak with Him and learn about Him. Why does it make me feel like my learnings will only come through quiet contemplation and individual connection?

  10. Dear Dr Laitman,\
    What is your view or explanation of Dissociative identity disorder(A person having several personalities? Is it part of one’s Tikkun/ Or strictly a corporal situation?

  11. How can a women who has attained the creator help the group?

  12. Hi Michael,
    What’s the relation between 10 (lost) Tribes and 10 Sefirot, if any?

  13. Prompted by your latest article, I keep reading in my studies how the Hebrew word for “Jew” [Yehudi] comes from the word for “united” [yihudi]. Now I am not fluent in Hebrew, by my understanding is that Yehud, spelled Yud – Hay – Daled, means “to praise”, not to unite. It is Yachad – spelled Yud-Cheit-Daled, that means “together” or “unite”. Furthermore, Yachad may have been used by sects such as the Essenes to describe their community 2,000 years ago but the Jews as a whole received their name as being descended from Judah (the only tribe of Israel that remained after the Assyrian conquest absorbing Levy and Benjamin) and their tribal land as being called Judea.

    Can you please elaborate on this apparent contradiction?

    It is further my understanding that Yehudim – implies that Jews should strive such that each of their actions “praises” the Creator which I see as a perfect example of receiving to bestow…am I correct in this alternative interpretation as well?

  14. In general, you’re making progress in maturation when you find Ecclesiastes a book of comforting.

  15. Is not meditation a focusing of awareness. Bringing the Ego into the light of consciousness? Once exposed it becomes correctable. Once consciousness touches the Ego in its entirety the vacuum of our being is no longer a hidden mystery. And the need of the upper nature clearly felt.

  16. Dear Laitman
    Can the Zohar help to rid of an addition ( tobacco )
    If it is possible, which verses could help me.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind Regards,

  17. Dear Dr Rav Laitman
    Can you comment or share your opinion, knowledge of the disappearance of Yemenite children?(in the `1950’s)

  18. My first Kabahlist encounter was Rav Michael Berg… Too religious like for my process. However, your schools seem more rational and practical. Yet the Texts do appear figurative and I see the attraction for more mystically centered person’s. Are your Texts qualitatively different or is the teaching traditional responsible for qualitatively different approaches?

  19. Are we suppose to be all the same? I think that the religion, culture and tradition of different nationalities give people a direction and purpose. Man has destroyed so many cultures, through war, desire for control, and proselytizing, that people seem to be lost. Your teachings are our only savior!

    I would like to study with someone near LA or Santa Barbara( preferably, SB) I would really appreciate your direction.I am divorced with 3 children and would like to meet people and surround myself with people who feel the same. I am reading The Kabbalah Method by Rev Berg.( This is the only book on Kabbalah available at my
    Library in Westlake Village, CA. What book shall I get next?

  20. I have studied your material for six years, and also done the online courses. I fully understood the importance of the group and I am well aware that I will not move forward without it. How can I get a group of ten people? I do not have the resources to attend the conventions. I have no idea how I can unite with others in classrooms online without even knowing who is there. I crave to advance, but it seems that this is not going to be possible. What should I do? Give up trying my self-correction?
