Jewish History

On the 5th of Tammuz of the year 3332 from creation (429 BCE), Ezekiel, among the only prophets to prophesy outside of the Holy Land, beheld a vision of the Divine "Chariot" representing the spiritual infrastructure of creation.

Laws and Customs

During the summer months, from the Shabbat after Passover until the Shabbat before Rosh Hashahah, we study a weekly chapter of the Talmud's Ethics of the Fathers ("Avot") each Shabbat afternoon; this week we study Chapter Four.

Daily Thought

A true master of life
never leaves this world
—he transcends it,
but he is still within it.

He is still there to assist
those who are bonded with him
with blessing and advice,
just as before, and even more so.

Even those who did not know him
in his corporeal lifetime
can still forge with him an essential bond.

The only difference is in us:
Now we must work harder to connect.
