Parshah is the term to describe the section of the Torah read each week (in total 54 Parshah’s spread over the year). The Parshah’s are divided according to their position within the five books that make up the Torah. Each week we add to the Parshah section of that week. We have 60 second and longer formats to suit your interest.

Nasso – A Baby in Mother’s Womb

Nasso – A Baby in Mother’s Womb

This week’s parsha, introduces the concept of Vidduy, public confession of one’s wrong doings and shortcomings. Verbalising these publicly, leaves a profound effect, intensifying regret and remorse. Both of these then lead to Teshuva, a tangible return to correct behaviour. Teshuva spiritually undoes the harm that may have occurred and transforms it into a plus.

Bechukotai – Life’s Rewards

Bechukotai – Life’s Rewards

Why expect material rewards for spiritual activity as our Parsha seems to suggest? That appears inconsistent but only so if one dichotomises life into religious and secular.  We don’t. It is all One.

Shemini – Delete ‘Seven’ – Express ‘Eight’

Shemini – Delete ‘Seven’ – Express ‘Eight’

Design underlies all of creation, presupposing both intent and a Grand Designer. The surface of the world is represented by the number seven – natural law.  The number eight represents quantum change where the seeming impossible is achieved, even beyond natural design.  Each one, through their soul, can achieve the impossible in their lives.
