Prepare to embark on an enlightening exploration of Sukkot's four species symbolism. I promise you'll gain a new perspective on the citron, palm branch, myrtle, and willow, not just as physical entities but as spiritual representations of different parts of our body and our commitment to God. We'll also delve into the profound act of shaking the lulav in all four directions, demonstrating God's reign over the world, and our personal commitment to manifesting the changes we pledged during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.Let's dive deeper into the essence of Sukkot, understanding the significance of fully committing to its observance, which includes stepping into the Sukkah with our whole being. This act doesn't merely show obedience, but symbolizes a tangible demonstration of our commitment to Hashem. We'll also delve into why the seemingly trivial requirement of having two and half walls for a kosher Sukkah holds a deeper meaning, symbolizing Hashem's embrace of our repentance and readiness for transformation.Not forgetting each of the seven days of Sukkot, associated with a unique trait of Hashem. Together, we'll learn how to tap into these traits and how they all eventually lead to the oneness of Hashem. We'll also confront the concept of idolatry, understanding that anything obstructing our service to Hashem can be an idol, and how the four species can help us reach a revelation of Hashem, purifying our connection with God. As we wrap up, we'll understand the importance of fully committing to the mitzvah of Sukkot and how it can foster our relationship with Hashem, and ultimately prepare us for the arrival of Mashiach.This episode (#241) of the Jewish Inspiration Podcast by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe is dedicated in Honor of Alan Schneider!****To listen to other podcasts by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe: https://linktr.ee/ariwol Jewish Inspiration Podcast: https://inspiration.transistor.fm/episodes Parsha Review Podcast: https://parsha.transistor.fm/episodes Living Jewishly Podcast: https://jewishly.transistor.fm/episodes Thinking Talmudist Podcast: https://talmud.transistor.fm/episodes Unboxing Judaism Podcast: https://unboxing.transistor.fm/episodes Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe Podcast Collection: https://collection.transistor.fm/episodes Please send your questions, comments and even your stories to awolbe@torchweb.orgPlease visit www.torchweb.org to see a full listing of our Jewish outreach and educational resources available in the Greater Houston area and please consider sponsoring a podcast by making a donation to help support our global outreach at https://www.torchweb.org/donate. Thank you!For a full listing of podcasts available by TORCH at https://www.TORCHpodcasts.comRecorded in the TORCH Centre - Studio B to a live audience on September 26, 2023, in Houston, Texas.Released as Podcast on September 29, 2023 ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Ever wondered about the profound symbolism and teachings of the mitzvah of shaking the four species on Sukkot? Brace for a deep dive into the intricacies of this mitzvah, as we unpack the teachings of our sages and the deep meaning behind this great Mitzvah. Get ready to understand the essence and the true meaning of pushing the Lulav back into whom all four directions belong.Drawing from the wisdom of the great Kabbalist, The Arizal, we unravel the profound connection between knowledge and action during Sukkot. We explore how the festivity, revered as the pinnacle of wisdom, bridges the gap between what we know and how we act. By shaking the four species, we begin to internalize this wisdom and connect it to our hearts, making our knowledge of Hashem tangible and deeply felt.The significance of action in observing Sukkot cannot be overstated. As we dive into how the physical demonstration of commitment forges a tangible connection to Hashem. We discuss how shaking the four species can help us internalize the belief that the world is under Hashem's control. Most importantly, we discover how we can potentially change the decrees of Rosh Hashanah until Hashanah Rabah, the last day of Sukkot. So join us, as we journey from understanding to action, connecting our minds, hearts, and bodies with Hashem's omnipresence.This episode (#240) of the Jewish Inspiration Podcast by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe is dedicated in Honor of Marc Schneider!****To listen to other podcasts by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe: https://linktr.ee/ariwol Jewish Inspiration Podcast: https://inspiration.transistor.fm/episodes Parsha Review Podcast: https://parsha.transistor.fm/episodes Living Jewishly Podcast: https://jewishly.transistor.fm/episodes Thinking Talmudist Podcast: https://talmud.transistor.fm/episodes Unboxing Judaism Podcast: https://unboxing.transistor.fm/episodes Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe Podcast Collection: https://collection.transistor.fm/episodes Please send your questions, comments and even your stories to awolbe@torchweb.orgPlease visit www.torchweb.org to see a full listing of our Jewish outreach and educational resources available in the Greater Houston area and please consider sponsoring a podcast by making a donation to help support our global outreach at https://www.torchweb.org/donate. Thank you!For a full listing of podcasts available by TORCH at https://www.TORCHpodcasts.comRecorded in the TORCH Centre - Studio B to a live audience on September 26, 2023, in Houston, Texas.Released as Podcast on September 27, 2023 ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Can our relationship with God be measured solely by our attendance at the synagogue? Or is it the daily nurturing of that bond that truly matters? This episode seeks to answer these questions and more, as we ponder the profound connection between us and the divine. Highlighting my grandfather's spiritual journey in Sweden, we explore how even without a congregation, a meaningful relationship with God can still be fostered. We also delve into the role of social media in creating a false sense of validation and how it impacts our understanding of our connection with the divine.We all know that blessings are abundant - health, eyesight, clothing, and more. But how often do we pause to truly appreciate them? In this episode, we look at how Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah offer us an opportunity to express gratitude and reinforce our relationship with God. We challenge the common misconception that success is solely defined by wealth, arguing that true success is rooted in our relationships with others. Finally, we take a closer look at righteousness and wickedness, exploring how these concepts impact our relationship with God. Our choices and actions, especially those made on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, play a significant role in this relationship. As we approach Yom Kippur, we reflect on the importance of creating a sacred space that allows us to feel closer to God. This episode is a journey of spiritual exploration and we wish you all a meaningful and spiritually uplifting Yom Kippur. Tune in and join us in this exploration of faith, connection, and spirituality.*****The Thinking Talmudist Podcast shares select teachings of Talmud in a fresh, insightful and meaningful way. Many claim that they cannot learn Talmud because it is in ancient Aramaic or the concepts are too difficult. Well, no more excuses.

On Yom Kippur afternoon, we read the 48-verse Book of Jonah, which tells of a renegade prophet, Jonah, who defies the directive of God and refuses to castigate the people of Nineveh and instead escapes from God to Tarshish – with mixed results. A simple reading of the story reveals a tale of repentance, both of the protagonist, Jonah, and of the people of Nineveh. But our Sages let us in on a secret that the Book of Jonah contains a  hidden, kabbalistic story embedded beneath the story – which also teaches us powerful, topical messages for the Day of Atonement.– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –DONATE: Please consider supporting the podcasts by making a donation to help fund our Jewish outreach and educational efforts at https://www.torchweb.org/support.php.

The Song of Haazinu is a richly textured tapestry with layered meaning and subtleties. Our Sages tell us that it incorporates all of Jewish History. In its 613 words, it incorporates all of Torah as well. And it is arguably the most difficult Torah portion to decipher and unpack. In this special penultimate podcast of the fifth cycle of the Parsha Podcast, we examine a striking verse that compares the relationship between God and us to that of an eagle and its young. Upon initial assessment this seems like a strange comparison. W hen we explore the commentaries, however, we discover a life-changing perspective.

Yom Kippur is our most serious and arguably most important Yom Tov in the Jewish calendar. But what happens if our feeling of overwhelm about the seriousness of the day (and the practical physical requirements of the season) robs us from feeling truly connected? More broadly, how does our mental health impact our Torah observance in general? When we're feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed, is Yiddishkeit simply something else on the to-do list that may get pushed off for another day? When we discussed tackling this topic, we knew it needed to be with someone firmly rooted both in the worlds of psychology and Torah. And that's why we turned to Chani Juravel, LCSW. Chani shares her insights on how our psychological/emotional state plays a huge role in religious life. With her extensive experience as a therapist and Torah educator, Chani's passion is the intersection between Torah and psychology. She also explains to us the Torah-true nature of therapy, how it can be fused with our spirituality, and how we find models of so many therapeutic tools and principles in Tanach, particularly from Hashem's model.

Step into the new year with wisdom gleaned from the ancient traditions of Rosh Hashanah as we uncover the rich symbolisms behind the holy celebration. We promise a journey packed with insights that will not only deepen your understanding of the customs but also inspire you to apply these meaningful traditions to your everyday life. We unwrap the Talmudic origins of symbolic foods like apples dipped in honey, beets, and more, and how they carry a profound message of sweetness and sin eradication. Beyond the symbolic foods, we explore the tradition of refraining from sleep during Rosh Hashanah and its potential influence on the year to come. The episode shines a light on how our behaviors and emotions on this day can reverberate through the forthcoming 365 days. We appreciate the wisdom of our sages, the need to avoid bitterness, and the importance of positive attributes. So, lend us your ears, and let us step together into a new year filled with kindness, positivity, and abundant blessings. Happy listening, and here's to an incredible Rosh Hashanah and an even better year ahead. This episode (#232) of the Jewish Inspiration Podcast by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe is dedicated in Honor of Peter & Becky Botvin!****To listen to other podcasts by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe: https://linktr.ee/ariwol Jewish Inspiration Podcast: https://inspiration.transistor.fm/episodes Parsha Review Podcast: https://parsha.transistor.fm/episodes Living Jewishly Podcast: https://jewishly.transistor.fm/episodes Thinking Talmudist Podcast: https://talmud.transistor.fm/episodes Unboxing Judaism Podcast: https://unboxing.transistor.fm/episodes Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe Podcast Collection: https://collection.transistor.fm/episodes Please send your questions, comments and even your stories to awolbe@torchweb.orgPlease visit www.torchweb.org to see a full listing of our Jewish outreach and educational resources available in the Greater Houston area and please consider sponsoring a podcast by making a donation to help support our global outreach at https://www.torchweb.org/donate. Thank you!For a full listing of podcasts available by TORCH at https://www.TORCHpodcasts.comRecorded in the TORCH Centre - Studio B to a live audience on September 12, 2023, in Houston, Texas.Released as Podcast on September 12, 2023 ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Rosh Hashana is a day of repentance. But unlike Yom Kippur, there is nary a mention of sin in all the ceremonies, prayers, and liturgies of Rosh Hashanah. What is the nature of repentance decoupled from acknowledgment of sin? When we study the sources related to Rosh Hashanah, we discover several fascinating opportunities that differentiate Rosh Hashanah from all other days. On Rosh Hashanah, we can accomplish things that are completely infeasible any other day. In this special Rosh Hashanah podcast, we probe and ponder the unique nature of the day that starts it all off.– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –This special Rosh Hashana Podcast is sponsored by the Gelb, Goldman and Shacknofsky families in honor of our parents David and Susan Gelb.

On the second day of Rosh Hashana, we read the Torah section of Genesis chapter 22 that tells the very famous and quite troubling episode of the Binding of Isaac. Abraham – the same Abraham who railed against the ways of child sacrifice of the pagans – is instructed by God to take Isaac – the same Isaac who was declared as the one who will be Abraham's true progeny – and offer him as a sacrifice on Mount Moriah. In this podcast we attempt to understand the many connections that this reading has with the themes and ideas of Rosh Hashana.– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –DONATE: Please consider supporting the podcasts by making a donation to help fund our Jewish outreach and educational efforts at https://www.torchweb.org/support.php.
