The Count

Today’s Learning

Pirkei Avot 6:6 tells us: Greater is learning Torah than the priesthood and than royalty, for royalty is acquired by thirty stages, and the priesthood by twenty-four, but the Torah by forty-eight things.

The 23rd way is: By faith in the sages

From our community:

Shefa Gold’s TORAH JOURNEYS – The Inner Path to the Promised Land is a remarkable book of 3-4 page explorations of each parashot, offering study intertwined with ‘the house of heart and soul’ (Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi) … as well as a ‘hands-on-accessible tool for transforming’ (Sylvia Boorstein) … “If you dare be addressed by God — read it. If you dare be transformed by God — practice it.” (Rabbi Rami Shapiro).

Rabbi Shefa Gold left the Jewish world for a decade, immersing herself in Buddhist teachings when she was “sent home” to infuse her Judaism with what she’d absorbed from Buddhism. Her website is filled with free teachings and the most incredible collections of chants she’s composed from Hebrew scriptures. Her other books and CD’s are wonderful, too!
