Lesson Highlights

  • Rosh Hashanah determines the physical script of our lives 
  • Pesach determines our quality of life and relationship with our Opponent throughout the year
  • Traditional observance versus spiritual connection
  • Stages of Development: Katnut Aleph, Gadlut Aleph, Katnut Bet, Gadlut Bet
  • Katnut (smallness) and Gadlut (greatness)
  • Periods of depression, disconnection, or smallness (katnut) create desire and appreciation
  • Appreciating the greatness of Pesach
  • Days after Pesach (The Omer) are a stage of katnut where we earn the Light
  • Seeing the end in the beginning
  • Singing Chad Gadya at the end of Pesach to remove pain, suffering and death
  • Recognizing the Opponent within.
  • The Opponent is temporary and the soul is eternal; our real identity is the soul
  • Restricting ego with the tool of Matzah
  • Matzah connects to Chochmah and wine connects to Binah
  • Fear/awe and love
  • Illusionary fear versus healthy fear
  • Eating Matzah to draw energy
  • Fearing external things  indicates that we do not fear our own negativity
  • Addiction to approval and recognition
  • The unity and large desire of groups gathering together for days of power
  • Consciousness of the Rav and Karen during Pesach and increasing gadlut (greatness)
