The Captive Child

Over thousands of years, countless Israelites were exiled and grew up remote from centers of Torah education and practice. What does the Halachah say about the status of their descendents, and how should we relate to them?

The Gates of Heaven

Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's Tikkuney Zohar: Tikkun 11 read in the original Aramaic and translated and explained in English by Rabbi Avraham ben Yaakov.

Mat'k'la: The Divine Balance

Balance (Aramaic: "Mat'kela") is a key concept in the kabbalistic explanation of the repair of creation. Understanding its meaning can help us come to terms with negative aspects of our lives so as to find true and lasting joy.

When a person is confronted by many details but lacks understanding of how they relate to one another or fit into a general system, it is intellectually unsatisfying and highly burdensome… The opposite is true when a person understands something in relation to its context. Seeing it in its wider framework, he can go on to grasp other associated concepts, and his success will bring him pleasure and elation… One's goal should be to attain knowledge of general principles. In its very nature each general principle includes many details, so that when a person grasps a general principle, he automatically grasps a large number of details.
