From Earthly To Heavenly Judgment

laitman_2009-03_79521A question I received: If a person who is a judge by profession starts to study Kabbalah, should he change the criteria he applies in his work?

My Answer: He should practice law according to the laws of his country and the norms accepted by his society. The earthly judgment will remain in place until society will rise to the level of heavenly judgment.

  1. Dear Rav,

    Is there a difference between judgement and discernment in Kabbalah?…
    Or, is that what engenders attainment (or not)?

    Our sages say: “A judge has only what his eyes see.”
    So, does the process of discernment mean that a man discerns only what his heart can feel?
