“The Last Generation” Band

We are very happy for “The Last Generation” band (“Dor HaAcharon”), who completed a series of very successful concerts around the country of Israel recently. Tens of thousands of people welcomed the group with great excitement in Natanya, Beer Sheva, Haifa, Eilat, Jerusalem, Modiin, Hadera, Rehovot, and Kibbutz Dan. A major concert also took place last Monday, September 6th at “Barbi,” a club in Tel Aviv where more than a thousand of people attended.

Happy New Year to them all!
Wishing continued inspiration and success in their work!

Make Hay While The Sun Shines

Dr. Michael LaitmanDuring a descent, no calculations are being performed with us. We are given a burdening of the heart and mind through health issues, family problems, and so forth. We are not expected to react correctly.

It is necessary to draw conclusions after a fall and prepare ourselves during the next ascent, strengthening our mutual responsibility and connections with others so that it helps all of us when a descent comes. I look at my friend who lacks strength and realize that I am responsible for him. In fact, I signed an agreement to help him rise physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

When one is in a descent and feeling helpless, he must realize that had he invested energy into the group, had he prepared for himself a reserve, a fund, an accumulation of forces, he could have used them now not only to minimize the fall, but to continue to rise! One would have sensed the fall, but only in order to use it correctly and rise again.

That’s why it is written that all sins are not committed during a descent, but rather in a state of ascent, depending on how a person uses it. We must do everything possible to accumulate these forces and invest them into the group rather than into ourselves.

Try to prepare yourself as much as you can while in an ascent, and then you will experience a descent with joy!

Kabbalists On Kabbalists, Part 24

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

Main Kabbalistic Sources: Baal HaSulam’s Commentaries on the works of the ARI and The Book of Zohar

This is what I have troubled to do in this interpretation, to explain the ten Sefirot as the Godly sage the Ari had instructed us, in their spiritual purity, devoid of any tangible [bodily, egoistic] terms. Thus, any beginner may approach the wisdom without falling into any materialization and mistake [that would distance him away from the revelation of the Creator]. With the understanding of these ten Sefirot [ten major concepts], one will also come to examine and know how to [correctly] comprehend the other issues in this wisdom.
Baal HaSulam, Talmud Eser Sefirot, preceding Part One
