Jacob Baloul
Submitted by jacob on Fri, 03/22/2019 - 01:41

Jacob Baloul
Submitted by jacob on Mon, 01/29/2018 - 17:36

Zohar Shemot 88A

Rabbi Shimon said: When a man has completed the three meals on Shabbat, a voice comes forth and proclaims of him: "Then shall you delight yourself in G‑d" (Isaiah 58:14). This is in reference to one [the first] meal (on Friday night), which corresponds to Atika Kadisha, the holiest of all the holy levels.

Zohar Yitro - Bless your Shabbat Table so that the rest of your week days will be blessed

Jacob Baloul
Submitted by jacob on Mon, 01/29/2018 - 17:24

Therefore, he who has attained the level of faith must prepare a table and a meal on Shabbat eve so that his table may be blessed all through the other six days. For at that time, blessing is prevalent for all the six week days, for blessing cannot dwell on an empty table. Therefore, one should make ready the table on Shabbat eve with bread and other foods.

Rabbi Yitzhak said: Also on Shabbat day. Rabbi Yehudaadded: One must enjoy himself on this day and eat three meals, in order that there will be satisfaction and pleasure in the world on that day.

BBQ on Shabbat in The Holy Temple?

Jacob Baloul
Submitted by jacob on Thu, 01/25/2018 - 23:05

Although "it is forbidden to light a fire in all your dwellings on Shabbat", it was allowed to lite a fire on Shabbat in the Beit Hamikdash to offer a sacrifice, which is essentially cooking for the people.

The reason why we don't light a fire on Shabbat is to not activate Judgement.

For example, a fire could cause a burn, and since G-D rests on Shabbat, He doesn't want to be disturbed?...

...but obviously there was an exception for the Holy Temple's purpose...

Hanukkah 5776

Jacob Baloul
Submitted by jacob on Mon, 12/14/2015 - 16:27

Hanukkah in Hebrew is spelled: חנוכה

Het = ח = 8

נ = Nun = נרות = stands for the word Nerot = candles in Hebrew

ו = Vav = veh = "And" alludes to the Shamash: ו-שמש

8 Nerot Ve-Shamash - all things additional in Hebrew start with the Veh---(and)---...of the Vav.

The Vav stands tall, as a single line, (like a candle) in the middle of the Hebrew word for Hanukkah:  חנ-ו-כה

& Nun + Vav = 56 in gematria which equals 7 original Menorah candles x 8 miraculous nights = 56

כה = kaf + hey = 25 in gematria, the hebrew date for Hanukkah

The Kabbalah of ThanksGiving

Jacob Baloul
Submitted by jacob on Mon, 12/07/2015 - 18:10

The word for turkey in Hebrew is "hodu".


Hodu in Hebrew means "thank you".

We know this from the prayer "Hodu LaShem ki tov".

הודו לה' כי טוב

In Hebrew, the holiday Thanks Giving is translated to "Hag ha Hodaya", the holiday of thanks.

So, now we can see that the Turkey - Hodu has symbolic meaning for Thanks.

Hodu = Thanks = Turkey


Were the Native American "indians" a lost Jewish tribe? ;-)

Celebrated last weekend of the month...is Thanksgiving dinner really a hidden Kiddush?

It is written that the 7 shepherds come to visit us in the Sukkah, each one leading the group of shephards into the Sukkah, night after night, for the seven nights of Sukkot.

The 7 shephards:

  4. Joseph
  5. Moses
  6. Aharon
  7. David

how does that work? Their souls travel through the Sukkah, like a portal between worlds.
