Lesson Highlights

  • The 'death' of Nadav and Avihu
  • We draw judgment based on our collective consciousness
  • Cosmos 1 (Midat haDin): a world of immediate cause and effect and Cosmos 2 (Midat haRachamim): a world with time and mercy
  • Tzadikim remove the accumulated negativity that exists when they depart our physical world
  • Moses did not die
  • P'shat: the literal level of the Bible
  • Acharei Mot is read on Yom Kippur to assist us in removing our negative actions that would otherwise bring dinim (judgments)
  • The illusion of death: all tzadikim are present and their presence is felt greater in all of the of the worlds after they die
  • Connecting to the world of Briyah and Binah by connection with the assistance of Nadav and Avihu on Yom Kippur

Lesson Description

Join the Rav as he reveals how the portion of Acharei Mot, which is read on Yom Kippur in addition to its normal Shabbat and weekday readings, provides us with the assistance to connect with Binah, the energy store house of our universe and the powerful lessons it contains about the illusion of death and connecting with the assistance of tzadikim in this lecture originally recorded on May 14, 1987.
