Alef Beit Part IV
As we begin this auspicious week of spiritual ascent, we will take a wider perspective on the Alef Beit examining some of the allegorical teachings about the letters contained in the Talmud and Zohar.
Sunday May 3, 2015

Alef Beit Part III
We examine how the basic building blocks of the Alef-Beit -- the dot and the line -- combine to shape the various different letters of the script of the Torah scroll, and we will consider some of the hidden secrets of these combinations.
Sunday April 26, 2015

Alef Beit Part II
We now consider the "5 exits of the mouth" and the different groups of "mother", "doubled" and "simple" letters, and then focus on the forms of the letters Aleph, Beit, Dalet, Heh and some other related letters.
Sunday April 19, 2015

Alef Beit Part I
We now start all over, going back to the beginning and studying the Hebrew letters on which the tapestry of the Torah is woven. Today we consider the foundations of all writing, and the mysteries of the dot, the center-point (nekudah - yod) and the line (kav - vav) which extends from it.
