Lesson Description

Join Rav Berg as he reveals kabbalistic secrets behind checking our shadow in the moonlight on Hoshana Raba and how we can create a security shield for preventing misfortune.

About This Course

Hoshana Raba gives us the ability to hold onto the blessings we draw into our lives during the holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. By staying up all night and participating in special reading of the Book of Deuteronomy from the Torah scroll, we can shift our consciousness and block any judgments from coming our way in the year ahead by sealing our spiritual vessel.
