This week on the Science of Kabbalah, Rav YItzchak and William explore the weekly Torah portion of Balak. Is there a connection between this evil king of Moab, and the planet Jupiter? Jupiter has actually been visible in Israel for the last few days, and you would be surprised to learn that the Torah does in fact speak about it, as well as several of the sages of Judaism. Listen in to learn some amazing facts about the planet and its connection to this Torah portion.
This week Rav Yitzchak and William discuss Parshat Chukat and the incident of Moshe (Moses) striking the rock, rather than speaking to it as commanded by HaShem. Can we find some connections to Kabbalah and the way in which we learn Torah today, and is there a repair for this seemingly great sin that kept Moshe from entering the Land? Listen to hear what the sages of Judaism have to say, and to gain insight into why the apparent argumentative style of Talmudic discourse was all part of the plan.
