Lesson Highlights

  • Idol worship or idolatry mean trusting people or situations as the source of our blessings and peace
  • Using the fire of the shofar to convert our limited desire into a desire for revealing the Light in our lives and environment
  • It is desire that makes us alive, so our job is to transform the ego desire for the sake of revealing the Light through us
  • Requesting the assistance of the Light to guide us every single day, so we don’t seek for external sources of happiness

Lesson Description

On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, we are guided on the consciousness needed in preparation for the first set of the blowing of the shofar, which is about removing all forms of idol worship or idolatry.

About This Course

Double the Effort, Double the Blessings. The great kabbalist Rav Ashlag taught that whenever something significant happens in the physical world, it is an indication that a big shift is occurring in the supernal world. This fluctuation pushes us to either grow exponentially or regress to the same degree. Our teacher, Karen Berg, recently left this world and, as Kabbalah teaches, has moved on to the supernal realm, from where she can share double her energy with us. Karen’s spirit of unconditional sharing, kindness, and fierce determination is exponentially more powerful – and we connect to it by doubling our efforts.
