Neo Hassidic - Letting HASHEM into our lives is what it's all about. We do it through our exuberance in our own ideas and acts in regard to dress, prayer, song, dance, and Torah learning. All this stimulates us to do "The Mitzvot " making this world a better place for ourselves and everyone else, Jewish or not.

Shalom, Shalom. We continue with our focus on the PARASHAT ACHAREI by placing our attention on the following passage found in the SIDRAH, it is written, “HASHEM spoke to Moses saying: Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them: I am HaShem, your God. Do not perform the practice of the land of Egypt in which you dwelled, and do not perform the practice of the land of Canaan to which I bring you, and do not follow their traditions. Carry out My laws and safeguard My decrees to follow them; I am HaShem, your God. You shall observe My decrees, and My laws, which man shall carry out and by which he shall live - I am HaShem.” (Leviticus 18:1-5) In this passage of TORAH, the NAVI Moshe receives INSTRUCTIONS admonishing BENEI YISRAEL against mixing the TRADITIONS of other GOYIM (nations) or replacing the REVELATIONS given by HASHEM to govern our LIVES. No doubt this is based upon the TENDENCY to cling to that which is FAMILIAR as well as a CURIOSITY to that which is seemingly SPIRITUAL.

In order for BENEI YISRAEL to fulfill our purpose of being TIKKUN OLAM, we were given the DECREES and LAWS found in TORAH. It is through our embodiment of these DECREES and LAWS that the rest of the NATIONS of OLAM (the world) are able to BLESS THEMSELVES. The embodiment of the REVELATIONS will manifest a HIGHER LIFE. The manifestation of the HIGHER LIFE will provide an ENSAMPLE to those who DESIRE to be TAUGHT.

It is often noted in our writings that we are living in a UNIVERSE of BECOMING, yea, it commences as the ONE BECOMING MANY and consummates in the MANY BECOMING ONE. Without a doubt, in the MANY BECOMING ONE, the requirement is that we are all observing ONE INSTRUCTION. The responsibility of BENEI YISRAEL observing and preserving the DECREES and LAWS of TORAH suggests that the INSTRUCTIONS are given to AID in the INFOLDMENT, that is, the MANY BECOMING ONE. Concerning this EMET (truth), the NAVI ZECHARIAH wrote, “It shall be on that day, spring water will flow out of Jerusalem; half of it will flow to the Eastern Sea and half of it to the Western Sea. This will be in summer and in winter. HaShem will be the King over all the land; on that day HaShem will be One and His Name will be One.” (Zechariah 14:8,9) In this prophetic utterance, it is disclosed that out of Jerusalem (the Jewish People) will come a flow of TEACHINGS that will encompass the EARTH (East and West) that will give rise to the reign of G-d in OLAM (world). These TEACHINGS will give rise to the MANY BECOMING ONE as well as the REVELATION of G-d’s Name as ECHAD. In other words, the INFOLDMENT is the result of the Jewish People embodying the DECREES and LAWS and TEACHING them to the MASSES. To ensure that this would be effected, we were given an ADMONITION warning us that we shall not mix the REVELATIONS or REPLACE them with the TRADITIONS of OTHERS. To do so will hinder the INFOLDMENT giving rise to PERPETUATING the CURRENT CONDITIONS.
