Episode Description:

Follow along with the text of this study.

Dive into the profound depths of Passover with Michael Jian and Michael Englander in this fourth study session, exploring key Kabbalistic texts including “Shenei Luchot HaBerit,” “Aseret HaDibrot,” “Pesachim,” and “Torah Ohr.” This enlightening discussion illuminates the intricate connections between mercy, kindness, and the essence of Passover, offering viewers a deeper understanding of the holiday’s spiritual significance.

The session begins with an exploration of the column of mercy and kindness as represented in Kabbalistic teachings, emphasizing the absence of chametz (leavened bread) as a symbol of ego and selfishness. By refraining from chametz and embracing matzah, we align ourselves with the divine attributes of mercy and selflessness, essential themes of Passover.

Key Highlights:

  • The association of chametz with ego and the significance of matzah as a symbol of humility and purity.
  • The first night of Passover as a time of divine commandment to eat matzah, reflecting the foundational aspect of mercy and the purification of the soul.
  • The concept of Pesach as a frequency of sharing, kindness, and mercy, urging participants to embody these qualities during the holiday.
  • Insights into the creation of the world and the revelation of divine presence in Nissan, emphasizing the dual aspects of creation and revelation.
  • The connection between Shabbat, creation, and the Exodus from Egypt, highlighting the integration of remembrance and observance in the Passover narrative.
  • The significance of the counting of the Omer as a period of reflection and spiritual preparation leading up to Shavuot, mirroring the seven days of creation.

Michael Jian and Michael Englander guide viewers through a tapestry of Kabbalistic wisdom, revealing how Passover is not merely a historical commemoration but a living, breathing invitation to transform our inner selves. Through the study of these texts, we are encouraged to shed layers of selfishness, embrace divine kindness, and prepare our souls for a journey of spiritual renewal.

This session is a must-watch for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of Passover’s Kabbalistic dimensions and integrate these timeless teachings into their observance of the holiday.
