Humor In Spirituality

laitman_293.2Question: What is humor in spirituality?

Answer: Humor is the ability of reason to find a form of particular release: it is not rational, not on its own level, but on a level above the rational. And that’s when good humor is achieved, a spark from reason.

It is faith above reason when you rise above your own ordinary mechanical thinking. That’s why Kabbalists very much respect humor, good jokes, and clever stories.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian, 7/9/17

  1. I think this is right, Humor and laughing is good, better than to be depressiv. With Humor hard times are better to overcome than with sadness, and to reach a higher Goal , happyness is a good start. I want to start something new. I never celebrated Hanukkah, but this time, this year, for the first time in my life, i want to participate in this jewish celebration. Sure i am too poor to come to Israel, only by feet but then i am not in time in Zion, but Prag or Paris is possible. What would you recommend for me, which City is better to celebrate Hanukkah, Paris, where the Sanhedrin are and the greatest european jewish community, or Prag, where the oldest Synagoge of europe is placed ?
