The King Is In The Field - Part 8 "Spiritual Assault" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on October 7, 2018) In discussing the Jewish laws of crime and punishment, the Torah describes a horrific scenario where a young woman is assaulted by a man in a secluded area -- an area where no one hears her cries. The Torah then proceeds to details the punishment due to the assailant. In addition to the plain meaning of these verses, the Torah also speaks of spiritual realities. This, in fact, is...

Torah Studies 5779 - 1 - Noach (The Flood Song)

10/10/2018
More
The Flood Song Shattering the Past to Grow to the Future (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on October 10, 2018) The imagery of the flood is downright terrifying: dark, raging waters pummeling Earth for forty days straight, eradicating everything in its wake. Yet, surprisingly, the Midrash sees this turbulent event as a serene song of praise to G-d. What does this dramatically divergent perspective tell us about the tumultuous breakdowns in our own lives? Sail the high sea of Noah’s...

The King Is In The Field - Part 7 "How Much Does G-d Love You?" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 30, 2018) "Why are we here?" It's the question that's been asked countless times throughout the ages. And it seems that there are countless answers as well to this most existential dilemma. Here's what the Kabbalists say: we are here because G-d loves us. G-d wanted to express love, so He created a universe and put us here as its focal point, just to graciously give...

The King Is In The Field - Part 6 "Lost Souls" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 23, 2018) Does Judaism believe in the concept of "lost souls"? Can someone descend so deeply into the forces of unholiness that they lose their spiritual connection entirely? Does every soul find rest or are some relegated to eternal wandering? In this session of Kabbalah & Coffee we explore what Kabbalah has to say about spiritual connections and "lost souls."

The King Is In The Field - Part 4 "The Smiling Face" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 9, 2018) The Jewish month of Elul is a magical one. It's when, in the language of the mystics, the "King is in the field." We can realize a relationship with G-d during this month that is radically different than at any other time of the year. But there's one very curious detail of the "King in the field" parable. The Kabbalists teach that as the king is in the field, he receives everyone...

The King Is In The Field - Part 3 "The Soul of Self-Motivation" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on August 19, 2018) There's benefit to being self-motivated and not being reliant on others for inspiration. Whether in business, relationships, or any area of personal growth, it's good to possess and maintain your own drive for success. Perhaps that's why "self help" books and seminars are so popular. We're seeking a better way for ourselves, pushing ourselves forward. But what happens...

Don’t Kick the Sukkah Religion Isn’t Just about Feeling Good (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 20, 2018) Abraham serves angels and is rewarded with a sukkah. We sit in a sukkah and are to be rewarded in messianic times with a sukkah of Leviathan skin. The nations kick their sukkah when it’s too hot, and the Jews calmly walk out.

Jews in Shoes Grounded Below, Turned Above (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 13, 2018) Of course we need shoes. It’s no fun walking barefoot over rocks, or around the kitchen after that glass pitcher shatters. Shoes are just a part of life. But all of a sudden, when it comes to holy days, places, and times, shoes are literally flying off our feet. What’s behind these mandated shoe removals?

The Need for Need Complacency Is the Graveyard of Growth (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 6, 2018) As we turn our eyes to a new year, the liturgy and practices of Rosh Hashanah emphasize time and again how needy, how humble, and how downtrodden we are. Why the depression? The story of an emigrating Babylonian sage seeking new heights gives us a lot of food for thought about our position in life -- and what it takes to catapult to ever greater peaks.

The King Is In The Field - Part 2 "Spirit Kickstarters" (Recorded at the Intown Jewish Academy on August 12, 2018) Sometimes, we feel down -- dragged down by the day to day grind, by the pressures of earning a living, by relationships that aren't as satisfying as we'd like. We feel down, and we feel stuck. Stuck with no way out. Until someone or something comes along unexpectedly and pulls us out of the doldrums. The Kabbalists describe the spiritual forces that do the spirit-excavating....

Certain times of year radiate certain patterns of energy and light.
