Lesson Highlights

  • Connecting with Rav Isaac Luria, The Ari
  • Reawakening a unification to our Source, the Zohar and Rav Shimon Bar Yochai
  • Connecting to the assistance of Rav Berg as Michael recalls his first haircut

Lesson Description

Kabbalists teach that when the soul is in the womb, there is a complete connection with the Light of the Creator. But as the soul becomes more a part of this physical world, a necessary process of separation from our Source occurs in order to allow for freewill. Join Michael as he explains how a child's first haircut on Lag Ba'Omer can assist us in reawakening a unification with our Source.

About This Course

The thirty-third day of the Omer is the day when kabbalist Rav Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, left this physical reality. On this day we can connect with the Light that Rav Shimon revealed throughout his life and the Light of the Zohar, which embodies that light of immortality that was lost on Mount Sinai.
