Nehora School Presents The Kabbalah Of Rabbi Ashlag

Not taking Torah literally!



The Zohar itself declares we should not use the Torah as telling literal stories. These are its words: Rabbi Shimon said: "Woe to the man who says that the Torah comes to tell literal stories and stories of people like Esau and Laban and such like. For if this were so, even in these times we could make a Torah out of the words of ordinary people — even nicer stories than these." In this podcast we look at Rabbi Ashlag’s disappointment to such a use of the Kabbalah and how it fueled his resolve to bring out the true wisdom of the Torah for all .
