Decoding The Universe - 39 - Building an Ark

Decoding the Universe - Part 39 "Building an Ark" With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on October 6, 2019) When the going gets tough, when things become hectic, when the storms are raging -- it might be time to build an ark. G-d's call to Noah to build the ark is an eternal call to each of us. Create a space in which you will rise above the danger. Fashion a haven that serves to uplift rather than sink. The Hebrew word for ark is "teivah." That's also the Hebrew word for "word." Because our words are likewise designed to uplift and shelter. In this session of Kabbalah & Coffee we look at the spiritual characteristics of arks and words, and gain a profound understanding on how in construction and communication, the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts.

Decoding The Universe - 38 - Renewal

Decoding the Universe - Part 38 "Renewal" With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 29, 2019) Many of us think of the theme of renewal as the Jewish New Year approaches. With Rosh Hashanah comes a fresh energy -- in the language of the mystics, a "new light" that the world has never seen before. In truth, we may experience a taste of this every day. One of the foundational teachings of the Baal Shem Tov is that existence is renewed at every moment of existence. Nothing is just because it is; it's constantly being made to be. The ramifications of this worldview are staggering. In this session of Kabbalah & Coffee we explore the Kabbalistic notion of cosmic renewal and learn the full implication of this teaching.

Decoding The Universe - 37 - Letters of Light

Decoding the Universe - Part 37 "Letters of Light" With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 22, 2019) Hebrew is not just one of the thousands of languages in the world. Hebrew stands alone and unique. See, while other languages are created by life, Hebrew is the language of creation. It creates life. The ancient Kabbalists teach us that each Hebrew letter represents a unique flow of Divine energy from the Source-of-all into our world. This particular energy flow is manifest in the letter in four ways -- in its name, in its shape, in its sound, and in its numerology. In this powerful session of Kabbalah & Coffee we begin to explore the deepest mystical secrets of the Hebrew letters -- the Letters of Light.

Torah Studies 5779 - 46 - Ki Tavo (Herd Mentality is Bad)

Herd Mentality is Bad. Joining Minds is Incredible. Chassidic Fabrengens Are the Original Group Therapy With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 16, 2019) Listen, we all have issues. But the good news is that your issues are probably not exactly the same as the next person’s issues. That’s where getting together comes in: It’s a powerful tool for recovery, inspiration, and direction. A one-off gathering on two dusty hilltops in the Judean desert brought home that message to the nascent Jewish people.

Decoding The Universe - 36 - Hidden Worlds... Revealed!

Decoding the Universe - Part 36 "Hidden Worlds... Revealed!" With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 15, 2019) Reality as we perceive it is only the tip of the iceberg. There exist parallel universes that are hidden from sight, accessible only to those who possess a certain degree of spiritual mastery. These are the "Hidden Worlds." Kabbalah elucidates these Hidden Worlds, describing their state, form and function. They are radically different than the reality that we know -- yet strangely similar as well. In this session of Kabbalah & Coffee we take a tour of the Hidden Worlds and explore realities known only to few.

Torah Studies 5779 - 45 - Ki Teitzei (It's My Body, I Can Do What I Want!)

It's My Body, I Can Do What I Want! Wrong. It’s Not Your Body. Proceed Accordingly. With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on September 11, 2019) It’s all skin and bones, right? No! In this joyful ride, we learn that our bodies are something uniquely special, perhaps more so than our very souls. But before you hit the gym, take a moment to discover the spiritual energy in that body -- and do your best to unleash it.
