This session promises to be a transformative journey, exploring the intricate blend of divine energies and their representations in our physical and spiritual worlds.

  3. Spiritual Actions and Their Impacts: Emphasis is placed on the actions during Sukkot, like shaking the lulav and etrog, which are believed to channel and mix divine energies. These actions are not just rituals but are considered direct interactions with spiritual forces that influence all aspects of life: health, prosperity, and relationships.
  4. Deeper Meanings and Practices: The class explores the intricate numerology and deeper symbolic meanings within these practices, highlighting the importance of intentionality and understanding in performing these mitzvot (commandments).
