A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
Spectacularly, this week's Reading contains both the first paragraph of Judaism's primary prayer, Shema Yisrael (3rd article), AND the repetition of the first formulation of the mitzvahs, The Ten Commandments, of which Shabbat is the fourth. Our lead article--
by highly regarded author-translator Simcha H. Benyosef -- delineates the spiritual dimensions of a wide variety of preparations for Shabbat, before the holy day arrives each week.
This Shabbat, the first after Tisha B'Av, is special; it is known as the Shabbat of Consolation/Nachamu (see #7, Story).

In addition, there is a not-so-well known holiday that falls this week, when the single Jewish women used to dance and sing together in the fields. (article #2)
Take part in Kabbalaonline-Shop's Special Prayer Offer for this auspicious day.

The 4th article focuses on our most frequently asked question, appropriate to look at again in the week following the yahrzeit of the holy Ari.
