Inspiration I also find these lessons on the Hebrew letters inspirational. Are you going to do all the letters? Perhaps you have already done them? Reply

Wonderful! Made me think. I LOVED this teaching and it's presentation. I had never connected re-incarnation with Judaism. I don't think I believe it's scriptural, but it made me think about WHY I think that. There is the verse that says "teach us to number our days..." and another that says our years are 70 or 80 years (don't remember which) . I think the answer to where our help comes from (Psalm 121) is stated toward the end of the lesson - from the Spirit of G-d Himself. "My help comes from the LORD, maker of heaven and earth." And yet, in a way, this IS sort of like our former selves coming to our aid: When we die, our dust returns to dust, and our spirit returns to the giver of Life from whence it came. The LORD who is eternal, is outside time looking on the whole of time as on a mural, can put His finger on any point in time or place - coming to our aid with the spirits of those who have come before - because they are in Him. Still learning - so only an opinion :)
Thanks for a great lesson! Reply
