Episode Description:

Join us for a profound exploration in our upcoming Kabbalah class, where Rabbi Eliyahu Jian delves into the theme of light, elevation, and confronting the self amidst life’s tumultuous waves. With the wisdom of the Torah portion “Behaalotcha” as our guide, this class promises an enriching journey through the soul’s landscape, inviting participants to elevate beyond their limitations. Set against the backdrop of current events that challenge our understanding of justice, unity, and personal accountability, Rabbi Jian’s teachings aim to illuminate the path to true spiritual ascent.

Key Points

  • Understanding Our Times: We’re living in a period marked by confusion, injustice, and a quest for fairness. The rabbi encourages participation in causes that promote positivity rather than oppose negativity, emphasizing constructive action over destruction.
  • The Concept of Elevation: Drawing from the Torah portion, the focus is on elevating ourselves, akin to lighting a candle, symbolizing the soul’s ascent. Rabbi Jian explores how personal elevation involves overcoming ego and selfishness, aiming for a higher connection with the Divine.
  • Unity and Diversity in Protest: Reflecting on recent protests and riots, the discussion underscores the need for unity across different communities in fighting against various forms of injustice, highlighting the importance of supporting each other’s struggles for equity.
  • The Power of the Candle: The analogy of the candle represents the human soul’s potential for light and elevation. Understanding the wax (body) and the wick (soul) reveals insights into our spiritual and physical journey.
  • Navigating Inner and Outer Challenges: Rabbi Jian addresses the challenges of aligning one’s actions and attributes (midot) with their spiritual goals. The class will explore how to reconcile external behaviors with internal virtues for holistic elevation.
