Connection of what's above to what's below Careful though not to give the impression that when one falls he has no connection to that which is above, as opposed to the understanding that G-D is in all things even when one conceals himself from. Reply

Question Dear Rabbi Raskin. I am an artist. I also have found throughout my life a strong emotional and spiritual connection to the hebrew alphabet.. In the past year I have been working on a series of paintings using the hebrew letters and their meanings as a starting point of exploration and expression. In addition to readings, I've greatly enjoyed your presentations on the letters. I am wondering, however, are there specific colors associated with the letters? Thank you for your work and your kind attention. Reply

6,13 Amazing, isn't it, that the vav's gematria is both 6 and also 13, when there are exactly 613 mitzvos in the Torah? No coincidence I am sure, as there are none in this world. Amazing that adding "aleph" thru "vav" brings us to 441, emes, the emes of the 613 ! new math: 441=613 :) Thank you for this lecture. Reply

The letter Vav bt Aaron L.Raskin I am fairly new to the Jewish Community. I found that short lesson on the letter Vav very interesting to me.
Is there a video that he may have that he diccuses all of the letters of the Hebrew Alpha-bet?
