Lesson Description

The portion of Tetzaveh contains the description of the tools used by the High Priest, a person who was a powerful channel for removing ego and negativity from individuals and the world. In addition to the assistance of these tools, the Shabbat before Purim contains a special reading and is known as Shabbat Zachor. The kabbalists teach that it is esential for every man, woman and child to hear this reading to eliminate doubts from our lives.

 Join Eitan as he provides us with the consciousness of how the tools used by the High Priest can assist us in our lives today and how we can connect with the special reading of Shabbat Zachor and the holiday of Purim to eliminate doubt from our lives.
