Happy New Year From the Odessa Congress!

During the Odessa Congress we filmed a very special video clip for the “Shana Tova!” (Happy New Year) competition. It took a crowd of about one thousand people, most of whom do not speak Hebrew, about a minute to learn and sing the Hebrew New Year’s song. The lyrics mean: “You’ll see, you’ll see, how good things will be, in the new year!” Watch this video to see how it all happened:

Memories of Past Lives Are Just Fantasies of This Life

Memories of Past Lives Are Just Fantasies of This LifeQuestions I received on memories of past lives and the resurrection of the dead:

Question: How much time does it take for a soul to reincarnate into a new body – days, months, or years?

My Answer: There is no time, and therefore it can happen at any moment.

Question: How do you explain it when a person has memories of a past life?

My Answer: These aren’t memories of a past life, but fantasies of this life.

Question: Why do we need cemeteries if everything stays in our memory, and especially since our soul reincarnates into a new body?

My Answer: When one of the soul’s 613 desires “dies,” it is “buried” – one stops using it. Then, as one continues the correction process, this desire is “resurrected from the dead” – in order to be corrected. This is how all the desires undergo death, burial, and resurrection, in order to reach the full correction.

Question: There are first and second restrictions, as well as the “resurrection of the dead.” When a person chooses the path of Kabbalah, starts studying the material and implementing it, then when does the “resurrection of the dead” take place?

My Answer: A person goes through these states one after the other: first the double concealment of spirituality, then single concealment, then single revelation, double revelation, resurrection of the dead, and the full correction.
