What Is - Lesson 6

6/7/2018
More
Are we bound by fate? If G-d already knows what we will do tomorrow, is our “free choice” nothing more than an illusion? And with so many powerful influences outside of our control -- or even our awareness -- influencing our choices, how “free” could they possibly be?

Torah Studies 5778 - 31 - Behaalotecha (Desiring Temptation)

6/1/2018
More
Desiring Temptation Is It Okay to Tempt Yourself? Somewhere, in some distant land, there exists the perfect person who is not even tempted by evil. For the rest of us, we're stuck with the daily struggle of life. The good news is that struggles make us better and more committed people -- and it makes G-d proud, too. So, perhaps we should try to look for even more things with which to struggle? The miraculous story of raining quail in the desert tell us, "No!"

What Is - Lesson 5

6/1/2018
More
What is consciousness? All injustice and strife, and even personal unhappiness, can be traced to selfishness. Yet self-esteem is essential for a healthy psyche and a productive life. To navigate this paradox, we first need to unravel the mystery of self-awareness: Where does our sense of self come from?

Torah Studies 5778 - 29 - Shavuot (Three is the Magic Number)

5/24/2018
More
Three is the Magic Number Achieving Harmony in the Face of Controversy There’s something extremely satisfying about settling a dispute between two parties. Of course, it would be nice if everyone agreed about everything, but that’s just not happening. Or would that even be preferred? Apparently, when G-d married heaven and earth in the present we called Torah, He taught us this: One is good, but to make two into one is even better. And that’s the magic of three.

What Is - Lesson 4

5/24/2018
More
Why does evil exist? Why do bad things happen to good people? The question has been asked -- and answered -- for thousands of years. But even if we understood the purpose of evil, would this make it more palatable and acceptable? Would it aid us in our efforts to defeat evil?

Rabbi Manis Friedman - Stop Existing, Start Living! (October 16, 2007)

5/23/2018
More
Existence is the root of all evils. If you exist you’re inflexible and have no room for another in your space. If you’re living you’re buoyant, flexible, patient and have plenty of room for others. This epic talk from world-renowned scholar and mentor Rabbi Manis Friedman teaches the difference between living and existing. It might just change your life. Recorded Live at the Intown Jewish Academy's Inaugural Celebration of Jewish Life & Learning October 16, 2007 The Park Tavern, Atlanta

More
The Majestic Bride - Part 5 "Humor" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on May 13, 2018) Nothing breaks the ice like a good joke.

The Majestic Bride - 4 - Connection

5/16/2018
More
The Majestic Bride - Part 4 "Connection" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on May 6, 2018) Relationships imply connection. Intimacy, certainly, demands connection. But there are many forms of connection -- some deep, some shallow. The Jewish mystics describe a formula whereby the deepest of connections is forged through a seemingly shallow connection -- a connection that, at first glance, might seem completely incidental. But when seen through a larger lens, it is the smaller stuff...

The Majestic Bride - Part 3 "Joy" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on April 29, 2018) In the mystical tradition, joy is considered to be one of the most potent forces in existence.

In this session of Kabbalah & Coffee we look at the role joy plays both in our relationships and in our day-to-day labors. We learn why joy is associated with weddings (hint: it's not the open bar), and why joy plays a...

What Is - Lesson 3

5/15/2018
More
Who is G-d? What are we talking about when we talk about G-d? Is “G-d” just a word we use when we can’t explain something? If G-d cannot be explained or described, does this not render the concept of “belief in G-d” completely meaningless?

Torah Studies 5778 - 28 - Behar-Bechukotai (Life in Balance)

5/10/2018
More
Life in Balance Solving the Paradox of Life Are we supposed to be proud or humble? Spiritually sensitive, or career-driven? So many extremes in life, and so many paradoxes to navigate, it can be quite dizzying. A command to let the earth rest for a year, a small mountain in the Sinai desert, and a Temple-era practice of freeing slaves provide the backdrop for striking the perfect balance.

What Is - Lesson 2

5/10/2018
More
Is Time Travel Possible? Is time the engine that drives the whole of existence, or is it just a product of our subjective experience? If the future is impenetrable, the past irretrievable, and the present moment too fleeting to meaningfully inhabit, what part of our lives can we call our own?

Torah Studies 5778 - 27 - Emor (“I’ll Take Care of It”)

5/9/2018
More
“I’ll Take Care of It” Investing in Our Relationship with the Divine Is there a pressing matter in your community that no one seems to really care about? Is there someone who, for whatever reason, is overlooked by everyone else? When it comes to choosing a cause, it can be tempting to take on the popular cause du jour. But sometimes, becoming a better person means taking the path less trodden -- even if it isn’t so popular.

What Is - Lesson 1

5/3/2018
More
Is the World Real? Everything that we experience, we experience inside our heads, leading to the intriguing question: Maybe there is no existence outside of our minds? But perhaps a more fundamental question would be: What practical difference does it make if the world is real or not?

4/25/2018
More
The Majestic Bride - Part 2 "Union" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on April 22, 2018) Male and female duality exists not only on this most physical plane of reality. Masculine and feminine energies exist throughout all strata of creation, within each scaffolded dimension. And it is the union of these two energies that produces subsequent planes of existence. In this session of Kabbalah & Coffee we explore the sublime parameters of masculine and feminine energy, chart their unions,...
