Recap of last night's class: UNMASK THE DEEPEST PART OF YOU

How amazing!!!!

 PURIM is almost here and Hashem sent us so much information to make our PURIM more meaningful than ever before.

Here are some thoughts we discussed:

The power  of the day of PURIM: (Rabbi Schwartz)
We can touch/experience/live from the "lishma" space in our selves- the part of  our neshama that is integrated with Hashem-

We "pray" the megilah: (Rabbi Ziskind) Every time you see the name haman have in mind your greatest troubles and rejoice when he and his sons are killed-

(Rabbanit Yemima- i think)
the ten sons of haman are k'neged our flaws/difficulties:
1. judgemental
2. poverty
3. easily offended
4. lack of charisma
5. cheapness
6. too much of a religious achiever
7. cut off from transcendence
8. controlling
9. immodest
10. feeling small and worthless

At midnight after megilah reading - the heavens open and daven for Hashem to cancel all bad decrees.

In the morning: daven, megillah, set aside two shaloch manos from yourself and two donations- then you have done your mitzvos and the rest of the day is about accessing and experiencing the lishma space (see above) while taking care of any other practical things- daven in your head throughout the day.

PURIM seudah (meal)= neilah- highest of all year- any request you have - ask! and do teshuva for anything and everything ( have a list ready in advance): this seudah makes up for the achashveirosh seudah debacle--- make it kadosh (holy)! say Boruch Mordechai 120 times and b'rucha Esther bas Avichail 24 times. 

We are organizing a group tehillim to complete the sefer as a group at some point during the day or during your seudah= sign up by emailing me at with the section you want.

Refuah Sh'laima to Shira's husband:
Yakov Shaul Ben Necha Yehudis
