A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
This week marks the beginning of the 3288th cycle of Torah readings
since the Jews entered the land after Passover in the year 2488 AC (after Creation).
We are pleased to offer for this occasion seven Kabbalistic insights, all related to
this inaugural Torah reading, one of which is also a Saturday Night special (article #4).
