Lesson Highlights

  • Teachings from kabbalists Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk, Rav Ashlag and Hillel
  • The Light chooses us
  • Only one in a thousand people maintain their spiritual connection
  • Not judging or seeing ourselves above anybody else
  • Taking responsibility for elevating others

Lesson Description

The kabbalists teach that it is not by our own merit of study or desire that connects us to the Light of the Creator, but rather the Creator chooses us. Join Michael as he reveals how this teaching can shift the way we view ourselves, remove any judgment that we have for anyone, and bring feelings of complete love and compassion for all.

About This Course

One of the major spiritual connections kabbalists make on the Shabbat is the reading of a weekly Bible portion. These consciousness lectures present lessons on each week's portion to elevate our consciousness and create awareness of the spiritual energy and gifts that are available through the reading of a Torah Scroll. With greater awareness and an awakened consciousness, we can connect to the Light revealed each week and use it as support in our ongoing spiritual work.
