A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
This is the first full week of the Jewish month of Nisan (3rd article),
and the week in which we start reading the 3rd book of the Torah, Vayikra (4th article),
which begins with a discussion of the varied offerings in the Sanctuary (articles 5-7).
In honor of the 192th yahrzeit of the beloved chasidic rebbe, Rabbi Avraham Yehoshua of Apt,
author of this week's lead article (and hero of next week's amazing story),
The Female Aspect of Adam from the Oheiv Yisrael by Rabbi Avraham Yehoshua Heshel Adam originally included both male and female.
The Original New Moon By Avraham Arieh Trugman In the month of Nisan, both in nature and in the soul, new life force and potential is about to manifest.
