Home Shabbat Parashat Hashavua Torah from Rabbi Shlomo and from Rav Kook‏

Torah from Rabbi Shlomo and from Rav Kook‏


This week commemorates the passing of Rav Kook  over 70 years ago-   - who saw the Holy Lights in ALL ISRAEL as they were starting to Build the Land

Rav Shlomo used to teach Rav Kook's Prot Hateshuva to his shul when he could - and though Rav Kook's Hebrew is a bit difficult - Rav Shlomo brought all the concepts to us -

such as the idea that TESHUVA is NATURAL -
it returns us to a MORE HUMAN STATE without all the "baggage" that we pick up as we try to find our place in the world.

Here is a quote from Rav Shlomo that I think would fit into his interpretation of Rav Kook's works (I actually have 2 copies of the Rav Shlomo work but not in front of me)

Rav Shlomo Carlebach speaking:
You know there is such a thing as loving Hashem,and there is such a thing as fearing Hashem. ...

Loving Hashem is not simple, but everybody understands it. When it comes to fearing Hashem we have a little trouble.

What does it mean to fear Hashem? The Baal Shem Tov says that fearing Hashem means that I'm afraid that I will lose His light,
 I'm afraid that I will dosomething wrong and I'll be far away from Him.
 In Chassiduswe learn... you can love Hashem with closed eyes or you can love Hashem and see Him.

When you see Him, you know you mamash see Hashem, you just tremble.

That's also a way of loving Hashem, but in a trembling way.  
 I'll tell you something very deep

When those great lights (of the time of the Mashiach coming - my note) are coming down to the world, they are ready to grab someone to make them ready for this great light.

 The thing is you have to really know that there is one Hashem and that He is as near to you as you will let Him be.

The great lights are here right now... you just have to believe it.
 If we can't believe, we are still in exile.

So by our believing (in Hashem) we mamesh are creating vessels for this great heavenly lights.
