I Wish You Freedom And Love!

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Do we, your non-Jewish students of Kabbalah, have to celebrate Passover and other holidays? Many of us are saying that we should hurry up to buy Matza and do the Passover Seder.

Answer: My dear students, I will try to explain it one more time, simply and once and for all, since I answered this question many times already.

You must study all Jewish original sources because they are written by Kabbalists. We study them in their authentic Kabbalistic interpretation, and not as the Jewish people have been studying them starting from 1st century CE, in the earthly manner, as if these books talk about our world.

It obviously includes the study of “Haggadah shel Pesach” (Passover Haggadah) about the exodus from Egypt because it does not talk about the exit from the land of Egypt, but of our ascent above egoism. You can observe the tradition together with us, you can sit by a festive table, you can virtually, together with us, eat Matza and fish patties or bread with pork, whatever you like.

Baal HaSulam writes in The Writings of the Last Generation that even at the final correction, each nation, if it wishes so, will preserve its religion and customs. Only relationships between people change from hatred to love, which is the exodus from Egypt. I wish all of you such a holiday!

  1. Dear Rav,

    You have explained this many times before, it’s true. But I still have something that bothers me and I hope you can forgive me my confusion. With all due respect Rav, you are a teacher who devotes his whole life in living in a kabbalistic way, spreading the wisdom in all your waking life. I find it hard to believe that you would waste your time on customs that have no meaning in a kabbalistic sense. Could it be that observation of these traditions can help us to ascend out of egoism, but you don’t believe that your students are ready to accept this notion? I for one wish to embrace everything that the sages taught us and so I’m prepared to follow and observe these customs bearing in mind the right consciousness and intention.

    Thank you and kind regards,
