that man was not created with wings is so that he would not be able
to fly immediately to do a sinful act. Since a person has to walk
to do so, it is possible that as he proceeds he will have second
thoughts and a more pure spirit will be aroused within him, counteracting
the wicked thought and giving him the chance to repent before acting.
Ascentof Safed is designed to be a place for relaxation, reflection, interaction,
and spiritual exploration, where you can grow and learn in your own way, at your
own pace, in an open atmosphere. You can experience a wide range of learning,
volunteer, creative, recreation and other opportunities at Ascent as well as in
the Old City of Tzfat.
We can help you create a personalized study plan,
you can join one of our weekend or weekday retreats, or you can come to relax
and attend study and meditation sessions at your leisure, while staying in our
great hostel with its spectacular views.
The main message of Nitzavim, in relation to the upcoming
New Year, is found in its first verse, which begins, "You
are standing today, all of you, before G-d, your L-rd".
The simple explanation is that Moshe is speaking to the Jewish people
who were gathered together just before they were to enter the land
of Israel. On a more personal and deeper level, the Torah is speaking
to each of us now.
If you enjoyed Saturday
