Amazing singing and dancing as dawn breaks on Lag BaOmer 5771/2011 in Meron at the kever of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, author of the holy Zohar

Follow me on Facebook and Twitter!

my dad said that this was even the reason why Baal Shem Tov used to sleep during the day as a teenager (because he was suppose to study the Lurianic Kabbalah during the night in secret)


Explain what Moishe means when he said to Elie, “There are a thousand and one gates leading into the orchard of mystical truth” (3).

This is the part in the book if it helps you:

One evening I told him how unhappy I was because I couldn’t find a master in Sighet to instruct me in the Zohar, the cabbalistic books, the secrets of Jewish mysticism. He smiled indulgently. After a long silence he said:
“There are a thousand and one gates leading into the orchard of mystical truth. Every human being has his own gate. We must never make the mistake of wanting to enter the orchard by any gate but your own. To do this is dangerous for the one who enters and also for those who already there.”

For them – it’s wholly unholy

Christmas Eve is one of the few occasions when Hasidim [ultra-Orthodox] refrain from Torah study, do not conduct weddings or go to the mikveh. But they do play chess and work on their bills

On Christmas Eve, known in Jewish circles as Nitel Night, the klipot (shells) are in total control. The klipot are parasitical evil forces that attach themselves to the forces of good. According to kabbala (Jewish mysticism), on the night on which ‘that man’ – a Jewish euphemism for Jesus – was born, not even a trace of holiness is present and the klipot exploit every act of holiness for their own purposes.

Kabbalistic toilet paper

The Knesset correspondent of the ultra-Orthodox newspaper Hamodia, Zvi Rosen, relates that celebrated Hasidic admorim (sect leaders) would cut a year’s supply of toilet paper for Sabbath use (to avoid tearing toilet paper on Sabbath) on this night. Actually, this disrespectful act has profound kabbalistic significance, because kabbalistic literature extensively discusses Christianity as waste material excreted from the body of the Jewish people. Today, precut toilet paper for Sabbath use is available on the market; thus, the custom’s relevance has diminished.
