The Ultimate Enterprise


“HaShem, our G-d, how mighty is Your Name over all the earth; You place Your glory upon the heavens.”

The royal ministers were traveling to the palace with the glorious crown that was commissioned for the coronation of the new king. The elegant crown sparkled with gold and diamonds. As they approached the city gates, the ministers came upon some peasants who were plowing a field.

The ministers showed the crown to the peasants, who were amazed by the beauty of the crown. Then one of the ministers asked the peasants if they would trade their plow for the crown.

“The crown is beautiful but if we traded away our plows we would be unable to farm the land,” claimed one of the peasants.

“You are not thinking clearly,” said the minister. “If you possessed this crown you could sell it for millions of dollars. You could buy these fields and hire your own workers!”
The crown in the story represents the invaluable Torah. It is worth it for us “to trade some of our time” during the day for the precious gift of Torah study. The holiness, light, and eternal benefit that we receive from the Torah is worth far more than all the gold and gems in the world.

Even the angels desire the Torah, and proclaim, “You place Your glory upon the heavens.” For the words of Torah are set like radiant diamonds on HaShem’s Crown. Through the words of Torah HaShem created heaven and earth. May we embrace the Torah and connect to LIFE, itself.
[Based on the parables of the Chofetz Chaim]

TODAY: Set aside some time each day to study the holy Torah — and enjoy the light.

Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh’s Tweets, 29th Tishrei, 5771

Today’s random Tweets, from Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

  • Noah was a “complete tzadik.” A tzadik clings to truth, is consistent. Thus Noah was both complete and consistent, but in a confined system.
  • The longing for G-d has begun, amongst Jews and gentiles alike.
  • In the messianic era (which we are now entering) hunger and thirst will not be for bread and water but for knowledge of G-d.
  • Learning Torah reveals the hidden light of creation, the light that shines from one end of the universe to the other instantaneously.
  • “And G-d saw the light to be good.” The sages say that He saw that the primordial light was too good for this world and hid it in the Torah.
  • Rashi says that “they shall become one flesh” refers to the couple’s offspring. Ibn Ezra says that it refers to the marital union itself.
  • Upon the creation of Adam and Eve G-d says, regarding all marriages: “And he shall cling to his wife and they shall become one flesh.”
  • To be wise is to take best advantage of every opportunity.

Kabbalistic Quote, 29th Tishrei, 5771

Kabbalah, Bnei Baruch - Kabbalah Education & Research Institute

The science of Kabbalah is unique in the way it talks about you and me, about all of us. It doesn’t deal with anything abstract, only with the way we are created and how we function at higher levels of existence.

Today’s Kabbalistic Quote

A person’s highest spiritual potential is to reach the level of maaseh merkavah (“the act of rule”). He is able to correct himself to such an extent that Divine Providence over the world can be executed through that person.
(Talmud, Suka)

Daily Kabbalah Tip, 29th Tishrei, 5771

The most outstanding Questions and Answers, excerpts, examples, illustrations, definitions, and advice from the Daily Kabbalah Lesson of Dr. Michael Laitman and Bnei Baruch.

Daily Kabbalah Tip
Tips and Advice in the daily Kabbalah lesson is recommended, practical tasks for advancing spiritually.

Spiritual Necessity

The advice of the Kabbalists must be a necessity for us

The souls of Kabbalists that already went through correction received orders from nature, from the Creator, to be in connection with us and to give us a method of how to work and how to organize a correct environment. We must use this advice since to progress according to nature will take a lot of time and a great deal of energy for each and every act.

Kabbalists’ advice must be a necessity for us. If we don’t carry out what the Kabbalists write about, then we won’t progress. We must relate to their words with absolute seriousness and not have any illusion that it is possible to succeed in any other way.

Motivational Quotes

Shining Sun
My lover, my sweetheart, has a gift for me. He has hidden it just around the corner. He is waiting for something — a smile maybe, or a laugh, for me to clap my hands in joy, in anticipation. Then he will produce his gift.

The Creator is our lover, our sweetheart. He wants us to enjoy the life He gives us — as it is. Moreover, He has a special gift. He has hidden it just around the corner. He is waiting for something — a smile maybe, or a laugh, for us to clap our hands in joy, in anticipation. Then He will produce His gift.
