Lesson Highlights

  • The danger of judging others
  • Only with the help of Rav Shimon Bar Yochai

Lesson Description

The portion of Nitzavim is always read the week before Rosh Hashanah. As the month of Virgo helps us cleanse our negativity, Michael provides us with two powerful gifts from Nitzavim and Vayelech that can assist us in our spiritual work. By understanding the danger of judging others and how we can both see our judgment differently and correct it we can avoid being judged on Rosh Hashanah. We also have the support of Rav Shimon Bar Yochai who in the portion of Nitzavim promises that the path he has revealed will remain open for us. By renewing and strengthing our connection to this path, we can eliminate chaos from our lives.

About This Course

One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Sabbath is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
