Shabbat is more than a day of refraining from worldly activity.

When experienced to its spiritual fullest, its holiness enlightens all other days of the week.

We invite you to enhance your Shabbat with these words of Torah.


Open Book with light coming out of it, brightening the sky

The Hidden Light – Be’halot’cha

The Hidden Light – Be’halot’cha

Sinclair, Rabbi Yaakov Asher
May 28, 2021

“In the world of darkness in which we live, events seem random and cruel. There seems to be no justice, no connection between cause and effect.


At the beginning of time there shone a light called the ‘Ohr Haganuz.’ With this light you could see from one end of the world to the other – meaning you could see the connection between cause and effect. God hid that light so that evil would not be able to harness that power. And now we live in a world where we cannot understand why things happen.


…Even though we live in a world of darkness, we long for the day when the whole world will be filled with the knowledge of G-d… when the hidden light will be hidden no more. And the light of truth, and love and justice will outshine all the darknesses of this world.”
