Question: Is it easier for someone who knows Hebrew to study the wisdom of Kabbalah?
Answer: Generally, yes, but there is no particular importance to it because the attainment of the upper world depends on exertion and effort.

Question: I have noticed that people with particular names like Michael, Adam, Rebecca, Sarah, and David are more attracted to spirituality. Why is that?

Question: Are the letters of the Hebrew language ranked according to their spiritual significance?
Answer: It depends on what they belong to. The most important letter in the alphabet is the first letter “Aleph – א.” They are arranged from above to below, from Bina to Malchut.
Question: Can letters and the combinations of words program the destiny of a person and do they bear life and energy within them?
Answer: No. The life force can only be in a person. Don’t believe in the letters and don’t attribute much importance to them. Don’t prepare a meditation with them, don’t pray with them, and don’t ask anything of them. There is nothing in them!
