Being Holy; Being Whole – TAMMUZ

THEME:  SIGHT; PERCEPTION

QUOTE:  When you place your life in the hand of God, you begin to see His hand in everything.

PARTS OF THE BODY – EYES

Last month we saw how the Name of G-d was embedded in our skeletal frame. This month we will begin to examine the head, which would link with the first letter in the Name of G-d – the yod. The head is the head, the ‘manager’ as it were, of the body. As well as the brain, it carries the four sensory organs of the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. This month we will focus on the eyes. The eyes are considered the most important of the four and often are compared to wisdom – the seeing and understanding the essence of something.

Being Holy; Being Whole – IYYAR

IYYAR is a month of healing. The Hebrew letters that spell Iyyar are alephyodresh – א י ר. They are an acronym for: “Ani YHVH Rofecha” – “I Am the Lord Your Healer!”

Significant healing takes place in the heart, which is the seat of understanding and the place where the beliefs and concepts that make up who we are are stored.

THEME: The Connection of Thought and the Heart

QUOTE: “Faith exists only in the imagination. In that sphere which the mind is able to comprehend, the concept of faith cannot exist.” ~ Rebbe Nachman

PSALM 32: describes God-Who-Envelops-In-Chessed/Lovingkindness

Biblical Month 5 – AV Live – Video

AV – The Paradoxical Month

The themes of the month of Av ultimately represent the balance of elements we deal with constantly on our journey through life. The truth and blessing to uncover is that the loving hand of our Father in Heaven is there to help and support us through it all.

Throughout all the ravages of man against G-d’s people, His mighty and merciful hand has lifted and sustained us, and helped us to transform the tragedy into positive action; the misery into repentance and forgiveness; the desolation into redemption.
