E-mail

Rabbi Freeman is the author of Bringing Heaven Down to Earth, Book I and Book II, collections of meditations based on the teachings of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, but in pithy, bite-size doses. Same with the highly popular Daily Dose of Wisdom emailed out to wisdom-addicts every morning by Chabad.org. Another one of his bestselling books, Men, Women & Kabbalah, is a primer for the ideal relationship. Also at Chabad.org, you'll find his KabbalaToons, starring Rabbi Infinity (“Give me one minute and I'll give you cosmic consciousness”) and his Heaven Exposed series, a unique genre of Kabbalistic Sci-Fi. More recent is his Jewish Meditation video series, guiding the viewer through simple exercises for meditation in Jewish prayer. Rabbi Freeman is director of Chabad.org’s Ask The Rabbi service, a team of responding "rabbis that care." You can subscribe to regular updates of Rabbi Freeman's writing with the Freeman Files subscription.

Rabbi Tzvi Freeman is available for speaking engagements on a variety of topics, including a meditation workshop and a classical guitar kumzitz. For more info, contact him here.

Today's Daily Dose message
Rabbi Freeman,

I would have written the ending of today's Daily Dose message a little differently. I would have said:

"But that life force is G-d as He has constricted a portion of his energy within each creature and thing which He has made."

Shabbat Shalom and Shana Tova Tikateyvu!

Gratefulness
Thanks for the post on Gratefulness and the Holey Bagel. Straightforward insights into the prayers.

To darren middle
There is no contradiction. The founding principle of the Jewish culture has nothing to with marrying others. Actually, it has nothing to do with gentiles. It is a self-absorbed culture.

contra diction
Just read "Why Do Jews Exclude Other People?" question reply. The questioner does not accept the exclusion of non Jews marrying Jews (and the implied extensions of this), dislikes the distinction I imagine. The answer is that the Jewish people must survive. So the founding principle of a culture is crushed to preserve the culture. So the real question is how to avoid the question?

re: Evolution-How Old are You?
Judging by this list on AMAZON you have written a lot of books! I plan on reading some especially the KABBALISTIC SCI-FI! Sounds up my alley.

To enable creation
We are created to enable creation To Be under rules of Truth and Love. Do believe in Your self You can...even to Learn if You do not Know How To Be Forth. Do not continue taking as there is very little left.

Patrileneal descent
Since Judaism is a religion, it cannot be genetically "traced." I have both Sephardic and Ashkenazi blood, and am also the descendant of a woman who converted to Habad in Jerusalem. So, yes, I also share genetic markers with non-Jews. (I also have the "Jewish" Crohn's gene). There is no such thing as being "more" Jewish, by any standard. My Mother was a Jew, therefore I am a Jew (in my case, my Father was also a Rav, but I was raised that religion is through the maternal line). It is that simple. But people born non-Jews can become Jews, and people born Jews can choose to ignore or deny it. Thank God that Israel has less and less division between Sephardic and Ashkenazi, for it is a silly division. And Thank God that we do not use blood tests to define who is a Jew.

TO Rabbi Freeman
Greetings Rabbi,

Was your beautiful post "We are One" based on any piece of Torah in particular? I know for your Daily Doses you say "Based on the wisdom of the Rebbe" but for this article you did not. I am making a web page in an attempt to unite yiddin and am using your article as the foundation and basis for everything. Skoach!

Religion and Science ...
The relationship between religion and science is indeed most important in our days, even if very little concern is shown about it in the general, and even less of it goes deep enough, in order to facilitate a better understanding. Recently, I myself have, after long long years of meditation on that issue, published the related paper :

"Difference between Science and Religion ? A Superficial, yet Tragi-Comic Misunderstanding ..."

In case you may find it appropriate to give it a reading, you are, needless to say, most welcome to comment on it. It is posted on a website which I am glad to let you know elsewhere.

By the way, for many years by now, I have been in close contact with a study group in Johannesburg, South Africa, run by a Lubavitch rabbi, where more fundamental issues of life are the subjects of concern, and the teachings of The Rebbe are the guiding lights.

In case it may be of interest, I could email my c.v. to an email address which allows longer texts than this place.

Faith - big vs small vs Truth
Faith/Truth knows no size. It just is. Being. Who can ever understand even a small part of the Divine Thoughts?
