Beshalach 5775
Vol. 11 No. 19, 5 - 11 Shevat, 5775 / January 25 - 31, 2015
A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
An exciting weekend. The Shabbat of Parashat Beshalach is also known as the "Shabbat of Song" (see article #3)
Erev Shabbat (Thurs. night - Fri.) is Yud Shevat, the yahrzeit of both Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Shneersohn, the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe (see article #2 for a chapter of his death-day teachings) and
Rabbi Shalom Sharabi ("Reshash" - see article #1), the great Yemenite 18th century Kabbalist, whose "Siddur/prayerbook with Kavanot/mystical intentions" is still influential today.
Articles 4-5 offer more reader-friendly than usual insights from the Zohar and from the Holy Ari of Tzefat
A kabbalistic analysis of an important American cultural event that will take place the day after Shabbat is featured in Article #6.
Last, but most definitely not least is a great story and then a special bonus 8th article about one of the greatest women in Jewish history.

Next week: special Tu B'Shevat edition.
