My 89-year-old neighbor recently reminded me of this anecdote when she mentioned a cute little florist shop that used to be on our street while waiting for her daughter to pick her up. That shop was so convenient for picking up flowers for any occasion imaginable. How she wished that the shop was still there. Now she must go all the way into town to get some flowers.
Previously, it was nearly impossible to walk past that florist shop without returning to wherever you came from with flowers; especially with those pretty colorful tulips flirting with you at the entrance at the start of Spring. The florist's enthusiasm and love for flowers were almost dangerously contagious. Every bouquet radiated love and kindness.
One day, as I was browsing through the card stand, another customer rushed in, pushed past me, and shouted over to the florist: "Hi! Is my bouquet finished yet? The one with the apricot roses?"
"I'll be with you in a minute," the florist replied...
NETZACH means fortitude. What defines true netzach? Listen to Miriam's great insight into the week of Netzach.
The acronym for the month of Iyar is " Ani Hashem Rofecha"- "I am Hashem the Healer". Inherent in this month is a special power to bring healing to ourselves and the world.
This month is unique in that every day we have a special Mitzvah (commandment) to count the Sefirot Haomer.
Each day we refine a different one of the Sefirot, the emotional attributes of our soul. This process of self-refinement brings emotional, spiritual, and physical healing.
According to the Sefer Yetzira, the sense of the month is thought. Positive thinking is the key to accessing higher levels of faith and is super intertwined with our emotional and physical health.
Blessings for a beautiful healing and redemptive month for everyone and for the entire world!

The month of Nissan- Aries is called " the first month of the year" (Exodus 12,2). The name Nissan comes from the root word NES- a miracle. The reason being is that this month reveals the supernatural and miraculous aspect of existence.
This past month we experienced firsthand Hashems miracles with a medical challenge that we went through with our daughter, Chaya Sara Bracha bat Miriam Shifra. There was so much learned from this experience of being enveloped in the kindness of Hashem that knows no bounds.
In our Women's Circle, we will delve into how to manifest miracles in our lives by removing our self-imposed resistance to accepting the goodness and miracles which Hashem has in store for us.

The month of Adar/Pisces is known as one of the most auspicious on the Jewish calendar. The Talmud says that when we enter into the month of Adar, we are supposed to increase in joy each and every day. Kabbalah and Chassidus teach us the secrets to true inner joy, even when our outer experiences and circumstances make it seem totally unattainable.
In this soul gathering, we focus on what true happiness is and how to live with happiness- Simcha!
In our special Live Kabbalah New Moon Women's Circle, we explore the depth, energy, and potential of this incredible month which has the holiday of Purim in it. Are you ready for possible unexpected blessed turnarounds in your life? I am!

On Rosh Chodesh Adar our precious 2 year old daughter experienced serious burns that lead to many complications. The unity and love that we felt from people all over the world, praying for her, doing Mitzvot (good deeds in her merit) LITERALLY carried us through this ordeal and helped to channel down this miracle from above.
Experiencing a miracle of that magnitude has surely changed my life forever. All the concepts that I had learnt for so many years about faith, unity, positive thinking, the power of joy, transforming darkness to light was being challenged through the test of my life.
Join me on Thursday, March 18th, for an evening of thanksgiving and gratitude for the miracle that we experienced, and to share the life lessons and light that was accessed during these dark times with all of YOU who helped channel down this miracle.
The Talmud says that "in the merit of righteous women we were redeemed from Egypt and will be redeemed in the future redemption”. I am excited...

There was a certain king who thought to himself: "Who in the world has fewer worries than me? I have everything good: I am the king and the ruler."
He decided to investigate if this was true. He went out at night and stood behind each house to hear what people were talking about. All he heard was each person's worries. One had problems in his shop. At a different house, he heard someone talking about a problem that needed government assistance. Each and everyone had his own worries.
One night the king saw a very low house. It was like a cellar built half underground with windows at ground level. The roof was broken and sagging. There the king saw a man sitting playing his fiddle. The king had to listen very carefully just to hear the music. The man was very happy. He had a jug of wine and various foods in front of him, and he was very happy. He was full of joy, with no worries whatever.
The king (who was in disguise) went into the house and asked the man how he was doing. The man...
וַיְהִי בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ הוּקַם הַמִּשְׁכָּן (שמות מ, יז)
AND IT CAME TO PASS IN THE FIRST MONTH, IN THE SECOND YEAR, ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH, THE MISHKAN WAS ERECTED. (SHEMOS 40:17)
Two Forms of Construction
After coming out of Egypt and receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai, it was time to infuse that revelation into the consciousness of the finite world.
The building of the Tabernacle- Mishkan represented the most superhuman feat- a Temple for G-d to reside within this world. After all, G-d is beyond the world, yet as Kabbalah and Chassidut teach, he chooses and had a desire to be revealed within this lower corporeal existence.
A seven-day training and initiating period for the Priests- Kohanim preceded the official erecting of the Mishkan on the 1st day of Nissan (Exodus, Chapter 29). Each day that week, the Mishkan was successfully constructed and then dismantled after the service was performed (Rashi, Vayikra...
