The Hebrew word Hanukkah means “dedication.” We celebrate Hanukkah each year during the eight days from Kislev 25 through Tevet 2 (Evening of Dec 2 through evening of Dec 10th) to remember the re-dedication of the Holy Temple after it was recovered from the Syrian-Greeks during the second century BCE. The Holy Land had been captured by the Selucids who tried to force the people of Israel to accept Greek culture and beliefs. A small band of faithful Jews, led by Judah the Maccabee, defeated the Greeks and drove them from the land.

Once they reclaimed the Holy Temple, they rededicated it to the service of G*d. The original Altar had been defiled by the Greeks, so the builders replaced it with a new one. When they began to rededicate the altar, they only had one cruse of olive oil to fuel it for the eight days needed to collect and prepare new oil under conditions of ritual purity.

Shema Israel

שמע ישראל (יהוה) [אדוני] אלוהינו, (יהוה) [אדוני] אחד Shemá Israel, Adonai Elohéinu, Adonai Ejad Shemá Israel (del hebreo, שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל, 'Escucha, Israel') es el nombre de una de las principales plegarias de la religión judía. Su nombre retoma las dos primeras palabras de la oración en cuestión, siendo esta a su vez la plegaria más sagrada del judaísmo. Oye, Israel, Adonai es nuestro Di-s, Adonai es Uno. [en voz baja] Bendito sea el nombre de la gloria de Su reino por siempre jamás. Amarás a Adonai tu Di-s con todo tu corazón, con toda tu alma con toda tu fuerza. Y estas palabras que Yo te ordeno hoy estarán sobre tu corazón. Las enseñarás a fondo a tus hijos, y hablarás de ellas al estar sentado en tu casa y al andar por el camino, al acostarte y al levantarte. Las atarás como señal sobre tu mano y serán por recordatorio entre tus ojos. Las escribirás sobre las jambas de tu casa y en tus portones.   Shemá Israel Adonai Elohéinu Adonái Ejád

Tikun Habris (Pgam Habrit)

things you can do to recover learn more:https://www.truekabbalah.org/pages/tikunbris.htm https://www.truekabbalah.org/bris-kodesh/brisindex.htm Most Keri occurs as a result of impure thoughts that pass through the mind throughout the day. These strengthen the animalistic soul. When a person goes to sleep certain parts of his soul leave him. These parts of the soul are associated with the conscious mind, with their protection gone the impurity takes over. On a simple level, all of ones thoughts from the day roll through his mind as he sleeps and now he doesn’t have the same level of will power. When a person has previously sinned by being Pogem Habris, he causes demons to be created. These hang around him at night forcing him to have impure thoughts. One can do things to protect himself, however if his Lilim are powerful they will use the slightest opening to break through. Here is a list of things one can do. -Do not think impure thoughts or look at im…

Adam & Eve, a new twist to an old story…


Here is a proposal for a partial transcription of a very interesting audio conference by Rabbi Manis Friedman, entitled:

A New Twist To An Old Story Please listen to the audio in the original Chabad page: https://www.chabad.org/multimedia/media_cdo/aid/470789/jewish/Old-Story-New-Twist.htm Transcription begins at minute 15:49:

So here is how Chassidus completes the picture and gives us the story behind the story:

Before they ate from the Tree of Knowledge, they were completely holy, totally innocent, completely G-dly, the world was pure, innocent, and evil existed because G-d created night and day, so G-d created darkness and evil, but the evil was in the snake. So the snake was the personification of evil, and Adam & Eve were the personification of G-dliness; and that’s the way it would have remained.That there would be evil in the world and t…

What is לשון הרע Lashon Hara?

Lashon hara literally means “bad talk.” This means that it is forbidden to speak negatively about someone else, even if it is true.   It is also forbidden to repeat anything about another, even if it is not a negative thing. This is called rechilut.   It is also forbidden to listen to lashon hara. One should either reprimand the speaker, or, if that is not possible, one should extricate oneself from that situation.   Even if one has already heard the lashon hara, it is forbidden to believe it. On the contrary, one should always judge one’s fellow favorably.   If one has already heard the lashon hara, he is forbidden to believe it. Nevertheless, one may suspect that the lashon hara is true, and take the necessary precautions to protect oneself.   It is forbidden to even make a motion that is derogatory towards someone.   One may not even retell a negative event without…

The account of the son of Joseph Pandera and how he abused the Beit Hamikdash to become a ‘powerful’ magician

ספר תולדות ישו Sefer Toledot Yeshu In the year 3671 in the days of King Jannaeus, a great misfortune befell Israel, when there arose a certain disreputable man of the tribe of Judah, whose name was Joseph Pandera. He lived at Bethlehem, in Judah. Near his house dwelt a widow and her lovely and chaste daughter named Miriam. Miriam was betrothed to Yohanan, of the royal house of David, a man learned in the Torah and God-fearing.   At the close of a certain Sabbath, Joseph Pandera, attractive and like a warrior in appearance, having gazed lustfully upon Miriam, knocked upon the door of her room and betrayed her by pretending that he was her betrothed husband, Yohanan. Even so, she was amazed at this improper conduct and submitted only against her will. Thereafter, when Yohanan came to her, Miriam expressed astonishment at behavior so foreign to his character. It was thus that they both came to know the crime of Joseph Pandera and the terrible mistake on the part …
