The Wisdom of Kabbalah – 23rd Tevet, 5771

Kabbalah for the Student

Kabbalists Write about the Wisdom of Kabbalah.

    Why then did the Kabbalists obligate each person to study the wisdom of Kabbalah? Indeed, there is a great thing in it, worthy of being publicized: There is a wonderful, invaluable remedy to those who engage in the wisdom of Kabbalah. Although they do not understand what they are learning, through the yearning and the great desire to understand what they are learning, they awaken upon themselves the Lights that surround their souls.

    This means that every person from Israel is guaranteed to finally attain all the wonderful attainments that the Creator has calculated in the Thought of Creation to delight every creature. One who has not been rewarded in this life will be rewarded in the next life, etc. until one completes the Creator’s Thought of him.

–Rav Yehuda Ashlag (Baal HaSulam),
“Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot,” Item 155

A Selection of Aggadaic Sayings about Tzitzit


G-d told Abraham: “You told the king of Sodom, ‘Neither from a thread to a shoe strap, nor will I take from whatever is yours’ (Genesis 14:23). I swear that as a reward I will give your children the mitzvah of the tzitzit thread.”

— Midrash Rabbah Genesis 43:13.

Joke of the day – 23rd Tevet, 5771

Back in 1889, Sid and Leah’s bull took sick and died. Sid couldn’t leave the farm. So Leah was the one to go to the auction in town and buy a new one. If she was successful they would borrow their neighbor’s wagon and pick up their newly purchased bull. The bidding was furious at the livestock auction. Leah put a bid on the last bull, and finally she was the successful bidder. She only had ten cents left and the train home was fifty cents. She ran to send her husband a telegram, but each word cost ten cents. She thought a bit and then wrote: “COMFORTABLE.”
