It's the season when many great religions gather to reflect on spirituality and our sense of community. As Hanukkah begins, I wanted to share a short film about an amazing spiritual teacher, Rabbi Yehoshua Engelman, who teaches what not everyone realizes

Thank you.

I am presently a student of Jewish Kabbalah. WOW!!!

In the old days, to study Jewish Kabbalah you had to be a male who had studied the Torah for 40 years.
Because of the seriousness of this time of correction, anyone, including me can study it. I feel as if it is what I have been searching for my life long.

The main message is we are undergoing a time when we must learn a most important lesson or perish.

We need to learn to receive to share--NOT FOR SELF ALONE. We are one people all connected. We all have something to give. We all like to receive. When we learn to receive to share, there will be plenty for everyone: people, animals, Mother Earth, everyone.

JEWISH Kabbalah has the big bang explanation, speaks of the other worlds which do exist, but most of all it has to do with escaping the slavery of ego and connecting with others for our inclusive survival.

This is my first Hanukkah.

There is an organization that sells the teachings even though Jewish Kabbalah is supposed to be free. I belong to a different group where it is free on the internet.

We who are with Care2 (regardless of any or no religion) are practicing the teachings of Jewish Kabbalah.
We do it all the time. We receive to give without asking reward. We are concerned about all life. We enjoy giving for the sake of others without requiring recompense, IT'S FUN!

Learning and practicing what we learn is what it's all about.

I'm 70 and I'm just learning my new faith -- Judahism.

I am grateful.

Just received this Kabbalah sound bite and had to share:

In order to choose unity, there must be diversity.

In order to choose certainty, there must be doubt.

In order to choose Light, there must be darkness.

Itís not about what youíre faced with. Itís about what you choose to do with it.

Yehuda Berg

Thank you Nancy. For those who are not familiar, you are not allowed to touch the writing on the torah with your hand. That's why the rabbi kept his finger about the words. There is a special pointer that is used in place of a finger.

Iím sorry. I watched the video and kept wondering what the point was. I think that an entire life spent reading any religious book pretty much a waste of a life. There is a greater dance and song to life than that monochrome vision. If there is a God I doubt that this God would find such a life impressive and if it was found impressive by so much more is such a God diminished. A life of silence I can understand and even envy but a life mumbling ancient words seems disgraceful. You see kids reading the Koran like that too. So futile. Get into abundant nature and worship there to your heartís content, balance your energies, grow your vegetables, feed the birds.
