What No One Told You About Abraham’s Story – Secrets of Kabbalah & Reincarnation (!Short Clip!)

Rabbi Yitzchak Botton – In this short video Rabbi Yitzchak Botton shares a Kabbalistic explanation, based on the teachings of R’ Isaac Luria, of Abraham’s/Avraham’s battle with Nimrod, which ended with him being thrown into a furnace – know as the Furnace of Kasdim. God then made a miracle saving his life. The Secrets behind this unbelievable story are found in the teachings of Kabbalah.

Personal Thoughts – I never knew that Aaron HaKohen (the High Priest) and Hur could have been reincarnations of Avraham Avinu (our Father) and his brother Haran. Very interesting parallels explained in this short clip

Weekly Hashkafa Shiur #67 | The Power of a Jew

Rabbi Mendel Kessin – In this Audio shiur (class), Rabbi Kessin details how powerful a Jew is spiritually and the huge responsibility that this implies.

Personal Thoughts – I thought the power of being Jewish was being part of the “chosen people” – being educated, being part of a long line of professional successes, etc. These are great accomplishments but not the reason or goal of being a Jew. According to the Torah and our Sages the ultimate goals are: tikun olam (fixing the World), helping bring G-d’s presence into this World, bringing the World closer to G-d, and infusing the spiritual into the physical. These will help bring about the World and our own personal redemption. Sounds like a big scary goal to say the least but it’s certainly different than what I used to strive for and seems much more important.

The Afterlife

Yahrzeit – 4 Tamuz 5781 (ד׳ תמוז תשפ״א) – Dr. Milton Raskin -מנדל אברהם בן ישראל

Today is the Yahrzeit of my Uncle (Dr. Milton Raskin – מנדל אברהם בן ישראל) who was niftar (passed on) one year ago today according to the Hebrew calendar. May his neshama have an aliyah (לעילוי נשמת).

Personal Thoughts – I never really knew my Uncle so well to be honest but in the process over the past year of saying kaddish for him everyday in Shul (the Synagogue) I got to know him more, spiritually speaking. Hoping his neshama has an aliyah (his spirit reaches greater heights).
