Celebrate the Holiday of Simchat Torah!

Dear reader,Immediately following the seven-day festival of Sukkot comes the festival of Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah (September 25-27, 2013) when we conclude – and begin anew – the annual Torah reading cycle. The holiday is marked with unbridled rejoicing, especially during the “hakafot” procession, as we march, sing and dance with the Torah scrolls.

“On Simchat Torah,” goes the chassidic adage, “we rejoice in the Torah, and the Torah rejoices in us; the Torah, too, wants to dance, so we become the Torah’s dancing feet.”

As the month of Tishrei comes to a close, we have experienced and celebrated the most powerful moments of the Jewish year. As the Torah reading cycle comes to an end, we have read, studied and were inspired by its timeless teachings. As we progress through the new year and start reading the Torah all over again, what new lessons, insights, and inspiration will we derive this time around?

Wishing you a most joyful holiday!

Reminder: The Yizkor service is recited in the synagogue on Thursday, September 26

Célébrée au moins depuis l’époque du second Temple avec un rituel particulier, la fête acquiert ensuite un caractère et une importance propres jusqu’à devenir, sous l’impulsion de la Kabbale, le dernier des Jours redoutables, au cours duquel le jugement rendu à Rosh Hashana et consigné à Yom Kippour est scellé et entre en vigueur.

Hochana Raba des images qui guérissent en profondeur

Aujourd’hui , on progresse en se rattachant a des cliches… Pas parce que j’ai compris,
mais parce qu’en pratiquant , je vais me restructurer et alors comprendre.
Une tête bouchée ne peut se débloquer que par l’action. Acquérir un vrai cerveau pour devenir soi même passe d’abord par un temps d’apprentissage de notions sans pour autant les maîtriser.

– Pourquoi ce programme spécial à l’occasion de Hochaana Rabba ? –

C’est un moment où on ne sait plus toujours pourquoi on se rend à la synagogue ce jour-là. La motivation n’est pas toujours là pour tenir éveillé toute la nuit lorsqu’on ne trouve pas de cours adaptés à son niveau, ou à thèmes attractifs ! Alors on va boire des cafés, on erre en attendant le petit matin… dans ce cas-là, mieux aurait-il fallu d’aller dormir et de faire une Téfila en pleine forme !

Nous n’avons pas tous une synagogue active en bas de chez nous, ou certaines ne proposent qu’un cours grand public pendant une heure de la nuit…

Pour combler tous ces manques, Torah-Box est là. Afin que tous puissent passer une veillée de Hochaana Rabba palpitante, intéressante, ininterrompue… et éveillés !

– Et de quoi s’agit-il exactement ? –

13 cours vidéo exclusifs par 13 rabbanim différents. 13 sujets intéressants… et oui, on ne parlera pas que de Hochaana Rabba, loin de là ! Il en faut pour tout le monde. Parmi les sujets que nous traiterons ce soir-là : Comment puiser de la Sim’ha toute l’année ? Quel est l’intérêt d’aller au bout de ses actes ? Sim’ha Torah, quelle place pour les émotions dans notre vie ? Pourquoi la Torah Orale a-t-elle été combattue ? Les souffrances des Tsadikim et pratiquants de la Torah… Corps ou néchama, mais qui suis-je ? La lumière cachée de Hochaana Rabba d’après la Kabbala.

Depuis mardi 19h00 jusqu’à mercredi à 8h00 du matin… se succéderont Rav Yossef-’Hai Abergel, Rav David Breisacher, Rav Yaakov Sitruk, Rav Yossef Loria, Rav Mordekhai Bitton, Rav Eliahou Touitou, Rav Eliahou Uzan, Rav Daniel Scemama, Rav Tsvi Breisacher, Rav Yossef Cohen, Rav Gabriel Haccoun, Rav Avraham Taieb et Rav David Ménaché !

Vous pourrez suivre ces cours depuis votre ordinateur ou smartphone, depuis n’importe où.
