Kedushas Shabbos 162 - Nevuah vs. Ruach Hakodesh

Rabbi Haber enlightens us on the “Light” that awaits at the end of days. He expounds on the difference between the “revelations” from Hashem that are זרח (beamed into the mouth of the prophet and those “revelations” that are through the process of הופעה (emergence from within).

Kedushas Shabbos 160 - Light: The Product of Darkness

Without darkness there could be no light. Without Yisro there could be no matan Torah. Without Esav and Yishmael , there could be no Am Yisrael.

Kedushas Shabbos 159 - Mastering the Pnimius

Rabbi Haber takes us back to Am Yisrael’s receiving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai and, through Rav Tzadok HaKohen’s sefer, explains how the essence of Jewish soul differs from that of the non-Jew. The blowing of the shofar is analogous to the הפחה blowing/insufflation of Hashem’s breath, so to speak, into the body of man. Jew cf. non-Jew. This is another very revealing and insightful shiur.

Kedushas Shabbos 153 - Dovid HaMelech Living With Sin

Dovid HaMelech spent much of his life agonizing and repenting for the sin of Batsheva. This shiur presents a crucial and mature examination of this aspect of Dovid’s life, Tehillim, and struggle for forgiveness.

Kedushas Shabbos 152 - My Speech is the Mirror of my Soul

Rabbi Haber explores Rav Tzadok HaKohen’s understandings of the effect of lashon ha’rah on the soul and what it means vis-a-vis the essence of a person. He develops further our understanding of why the Jewish People merited our redemption from Egypt, receiving of the Torah and our status as Hashem’s Chosen People. To be chosen requires cohesiveness which requires unity of essence on its deepest level and not, necessarily, unity of deed. Speech is the vehicle of unity. It outstrips actions in the accounting of who a person really is.

Kedushas Shabbos 151 - Imposters: The Root of All Evil

Rabbi Haber, in his inimitable and straight-forward manner, makes clear to us that the sin of the nachash was its attempt to “be” Hashem by imposing his faulty logic on Eve and by being the root of all lashon ha’rah. Rav Haber cites Rav Tzadok HaKohen and the Chafetz Chaim to prove that at every turn in the history of the world, as described by Torah, the root of evil is “someone’s” attempt to place themselves at Hashem’s level, chas v’shalom and, thereby taking the wind, so to speak, out of Hashem’s Plan for the world and the Jewish People.

Kedushas Shabbos 150 - Heart to Heart

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, fathoms the unfathomable and probes the depths of Rav Tzadok HaKohen’s teachings about what “convinced” Hashem to give His most precious gift of His Torah to the Jewish People. What is it that makes the Jewish People special and unique? Rav Haber plumbs one aspect of our national genetics to reveal a very surprising answer.

Kedushas Shabbos 149 - The Wheel of Purpose

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, delves the depths of Kabbala and shows that, unlike Shakespeare's vision of the whole world being merely a “stage upon which the actors strut...”, that the Neshama/Guf of every Jew is a necessary spoke in the “Wheel of Purpose” that will bring the Final Redemption and the Kingdom of Hashem down to Earth. This is known to Yaakov Avinu and Yosef as portrayed in Parashat Vayigash as well as in the Purim Story and the kingship of Shaul, HaMelech.

Kedushas Shabbos 148 - Perfection Is Not So Simple

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, explains, in his special and eloquent way, how Rav Tzadok HaKohen sees the days of Mashiach as containing complexities that are not simple to understand at the same time that he makes them clear and understandable. Why did Yitzchak think that Eisav was the mashiach of the Jewish People? Why did Shmuel haNavi not think that Dovid was the right candidate for mashiach? These “mistakes” are the exact opposite of each other. But, Hashem has His Plan for Creation and tikun olam and, “it is very complicated” to the casual observer. Rav Haber, tours the depths of these seemingly complicated issues and makes them understandable for all.

Kedushas Shabbos 147 - The Sparks of Our Enemies

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, further expands on the concept of the Goal of the Jewish People to repair the Sin of Adam and bring the Final Redemption. Our “Foes” play a significant and necessary function in the process of redemption. They also contain “Sparks” of the Divine that must be brought back and Unified under His Kingdom. Before the Sinai experience the Shechina rested in the boundaries of Esav. Rav Haber explores the sources of Christianity and Islam while revealing the mystery of “408”. The focus on Shevet Dan is central to this mystery.

Kedushas Shabbos 146 - Pesel Micha Part 1

Rabbi Haber explains the effect of the idol of Micha on Knesset Yisrael. At Har Sinai, Knesset Yisrael was tied together in the Malchus of Hashem. He relates the story of Shevet Dan in the midbar and how they were thrown out of the Cloud of Glory and that Dan was a Klipa that was necessary to save from Amalek the “pieces” of Knesset Yisrael who were straggling behind .
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 33.9 megabytes | 49:25

Kedushas Shabbos 145 - Pesel Micha Part 1

Rabbi Haber extracts a fascinating introduction to Shevet Dan and Shimshon from Sefer Shoftim. How could it be that Hashem allows idol worship in His Name? This is the first part of a 2 part discussion regarding Rav Tzadok HaKohen’s analysis of the answer to that question. This is an extremely interesting and provocative shiur that leaves much to think about. What does Hashem really want?

Kedushas Shabbos 144 - The Frayed Rope of our Heritage

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, threads the “Rope” of Yaakov Avinu as voiced by Moshe Rabeinu in Parshat Haazinu “יעקב חבל נחלתו”, and explains how just as the strands of the “Rope” are tight and unified at the top and frayed and separated at the bottom, so are the separations in the world. It is our job to Unite the strands for the sake of the Malchut of Hashem. Then, Hashem will sit on His Throne and not only will He continue to be ONE, but His Name will be ONE. He further shows us how the sin of Shimson is parallel to the sin of Adam.

Kedushas Shabbos 143 - Shimshon and his Dandilia

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, resumes his exposition of Shimshon’s role as a Judge and potential mashiach for the Jewish People, citing Rashi and following Rav Tzadok HaKohen’s sefer. This is a powerful video connecting Yaacov Avinu’s bracha to Shevet Dan to Shimshon and what it means for us today.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 141 - Messiah: A Warrior or Religious Leader

Rabbi Haber explores with us the possibilities of the character traits that the Messiah will possess. Must he be a warrior in order to subdue the world and connect mankind with the Source, the Creator? Or, will he be a completely different kind of personality who leads with his will rather than his strength? Rabbi Haber postulates that whatever the nature of his character, there is one element that he must possess, and that is INDEPENDENCE! A review of history will reveal that every possible Messiah had this quality.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 140 - The Story of Samson

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, enlightens us on further historical progressions of the Jewish People’s efforts to reclaim Gan Eden as it was before the chet of Adam and how, once again, there was a lost opportunity for the Jewish People to realize their destiny of fixing the “damage” that the Adam’s chet inflicted on the world. Shimshon, was another potential Mashiach in a long line who was not up to the challenge. Rav Haber shows us the incredible similarities between Shimshon’s “mistakes” and that of Adam HaRishon, the first potential Mashiach.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 133 megabytes | 58:30

Kedushas Shabbos Part 139 - Heart & Soul

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, explores the source of the neshama and it’s spiritual and physical manifestation within the Jew. Everything starts with the heart. When it (feeling) starts in the heart, it is then filtered through the brain. The broken heart is the the Mishkan wherein the Shechina can rest. But your heart has to be softened (or broken) enough to allow the Shechina to penetrate. The Kotzker Rav said that “there is nothing more full than a broken heart.” If you survive a broken heart, you’ll be better for it because then your heart is a bigger place for the Shechina to rest. Tears דִמעָות are a product of the heart when it’s not filtered by the brain. Babies cry because the brain is not developed. When Yaakov Avinu thought he was about to die, he was going to reveal the end of days to his children. But, the Shechina left him. He looked at his sons and thought that “something is not working here.” His sons said to him “just as your heart is one, so too, our hearts are one. To which Yaakov answered “ברוך שם כבוד מלכותו לעולם ועד”. In this context, the Rav discusses the Upper Unity [Ychuda Ilaa] (Yaakov) and the Lower Unity [Ychuda Tataa ] (The Shevatim) and the Har Sinai Experience before [Ychuda Ilaa] and after the Chet HaEgel [Ychuda Tataa ]. And then he relates this phenomenon to “before the 3 upper Sefiros” and “after the 7 lower Sefiros (Malchut)”. By examining the divisions between the Upper Point and the Lower Point we can see the map of history playing out. Tying these separations together is OK. It’s Malchut (Kingship) which could even be on a higher level the the Upper Unity. The Rav then brings it all back to Adam HaRishon before and after the Chet of the Etz HaDaas. Upper Unity is immediate. Lower Unity can take a few thousand years (to tie everything together). The vessel of pray is your heart! We must figure out how to activate the koach (Energy) of the heart. Bringing things together requires emotion.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 138 - Chutzpah

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, brings together the physical and spiritual (corporal & ethereal) essence of the Jewish Heart, learning from Rav Tzadok HaKohen, Dovid HaMelech, and other spiritual greats. The equality, which is Knesset Yisrael, happens when the Jewish People are as one person with one heart, that is when the Shechina can rest within them. That’s called Malchus. The Tzur of Yisrael is it’s stubbornness, the validity or strength of Yisrael is it’s Chutzpah which is implanted within the Jewish heart by Hashem. Fine tune your Chutzpah to listen to the right side of your heart which is Hashem’s transmitter. With your heart, seek His face!

Kedushas Shabbos Part 137 - Connectivity of the Menorah

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, illuminates the meaning of the lighting of the Menorah in the Mishkan. The model of the Menorah teaches us many things about the role of the Jewish People and our seven shepherds in this world. The Menorah is so much more than symbolism. It holds the keys to understanding much about the workings of the universe. The seven branches of the Menorah, parallel the seven days of creation and the seven sefiros and many other references to the number seven in the Torah. The Beit HaMikdosh is the manifestation of the Shechina in this world. The Menorah is the representation of the Shechina in the Beit HaMikdosh. There were 7 platforms that held up the Aron HaKodesh. Rav. Haber takes us through the Noam Elimelech’s explanation of the language in Parshat Bahalosecha which describes the directions that Hashem gave Aaron regarding lighting the Menorah.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 136 - The Seven Roim

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, teaches us Rabbi Tzadok’s lesson about how the neshama yeseirah permeates through the 7 lower sefiros and how it is all connected to the Secret of Seven. He explains the nature of the neshama yeseirah and how it functions through the sefirot as a gift to us on Shabbos. It gives us extra abilities to experience the manifestation of Kedusha within our being.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 108 megabytes | 47:32

Kedushas Shabbos Part 135 - The Neshama Yeseirah

Rabbi Haber tunes us in to the “unimaginable” realm of a gift that can’t be seen, felt or known (unless we were told about it)… The Neshama Yeseirah נשמה יתרה. It opens up our ability to connect with the Unfathomable Infinite. Shabbos is the Crown of the Neshama.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 123 megabytes | 54:05

Kedushas Shabbos Part 134 - Nachash = Mashiach 358

Rabbi Haber, shlit’a, explores with us the similarities between the chet of Adam HaRishon and the “mistakes” of other “potential Meshichim (משיחים)” throughout HIStory. Is wanting to be the closest to Hashem, and therefore like Him, a bad thing? Is trying to be too much like Him the wrong approach to the destruction of the contamination that we ingested because of our “desires/lusts (תאות)”? What happens to those of us who “dare” to come that close to Him without His permission? When we look into the mirror do we see the snake? We’re here but… The gematria of the Hebrew word for Meshiach משיח is the same as that for the Hebrew word for snake נחש (Nachash) = 358. Do we need to die in order to completely cleanse ourselves of the contamination of lust that we ingested? Watch and be transformed!
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 109 megabytes | 47:37

Kedushas Shabbos Part 133 - “Where’s the Beef? I’m Not a Nursemaid!”

Rabbi Haber unveils 71 “pipes” of abundance that Hashem opened up for us when we reinfected ourselves with the זהום (contamination) of desire after our lengthy year-long Sinai experience. When we left Har Sinai, we started to revisit our yetzer ha’rah (evil inclination). The effect of living at Har Sinai wore off. The erev rav (mixed multitude) rabble-rousers began to agitate discontent among our People and we lost the effect of our encounter with the Infinite. We moaned, we complained: Where’s the beef? Where’s the herring? Where’s the onions? Where’s the garlic? Moshe Rabbeinu reacted by beseeching Hashem for help, “I’m not a nursemaid!” I only want to be the “pipeline” of spiritually! I don’t want to be their “mother.” We were reintroduced to תאבה (desire) when we left Mount Sinai.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 132 - Harnessing the Evil Within

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, posits, based upon Rav Tzadok HaKohen, that “having a little bit of ‘Rah’ within us us not such a bad thing.” This Plan B that we (Adam) chose, could make us much better, in the long run, than had we gone with Plan A which was the Plan before Adam ingested the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil. In other words, now that you’ve ingested the knowledge (tools) harness the beauty and exhilaration of the ride on the bucking bronco (which could also kill you) and make it bend to Hashem’s Will. “Some with chariots and some with horses, but we (the Jewish People) in the Name of Hashem call out.” If we do that… “Hashem save, may the King answer us on the day we call.” And then, shall a redeemer come to zion, and to those who repent from willful sin among Yaakov, the words of Hashem.” Our work, now that we’ve exposed ourselves to good and evil, is to use the tools that we’ve acquired to build a Home for the Shechina here on this grungy, dirty earth. It may not be an easy job, and it make take 6000 years, but we, the Jewish People, have the antidote to the Zehumas HaNachash. We must harness it.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 111 megabytes | 48:31

Kedushas Shabbos Part 131 - The History of the Zehumas HaNachash

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, reveals questions and answers about how and when the “venom” of the nachash that was ingested by Adam was/will be neutralized within the framework of the stages of Jewish history. The secret is in the recombining the “soul” with the “body.” The laboratory is Shabbos.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 102 megabytes | 54:11

Kedushas Shabbos Part 130 - Har Sinai: Before and After

Rabbi Haber composes a historical scenario taking us from the Sin of Adam, through Noach, Avraham Avinu, Yitzchak Avinu, Yaakov Avinu, the shevatim, Yetziat Mitzraim, Moshe and the rest of the Story of the Jewish People until the coming of Mashiach. He explains how after we ingested the Slime or poison of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, our function in the world is to eradicate and disgorge ourselves of that Slime & Grime to get back to the Holiness that was extant before the Sin when the Shechina could dwell amongst us. Individually, some of us may be able to get close. We’ve had many chances, as Rav Haber demonstrates. It’s a process that has taken over 3,500 years to complete. When the Mashiach finally arrives, the Second Luchos will be revealed to the Whole World Publicly when Hashem will be One and His Name will be One.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 110 megabytes | 48:06

Kedushas Shabbos Part 129 - The Nachash Factor

Rabbi Haber elaborates on how & why the Nachash enticed Chava and was able to seduce her. Now the נחש is within us as the יצר הרע. The first stone tablets (Ten Commandments) were not successful because they were given “publicly” פרהסיה with pomp and circumstance. But the second stone tablets were given “quietly” anxiously בחשאי. Plan A didn’t work. Most start-ups are a failure. The First Tablets were like Adam before the sin.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 106 megabytes | 46:26

Kedushas Shabbos Part 128 - Who You Are is What You See

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, delves into the method of analyzing ones character by inspecting the way one sees the world. Is it good or bad? Is it holy or perverse? The model for a rasha רשע (evil person) as described in the Gomorrah and by Rabbi Tzadik HaKohen, is the non-Jewish prophet, Bilam. This is a fascinating discussion that touches on many ideas of fundamental substance to Judaism. Who are we in the world? What is our role as a Jewish Nation? How do we fix the sin of Adam and those of our predecessors? Is there a difference between souls? How do different souls view the same thing? How do the Chruvim fit into this discussion? Why do we see what we see? Can we change what we see? Can we change who we are? Watch, learn, and be amazed!
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 120 megabytes | 52:43

Kedushas Shabbos Part 127 - We’re Left with Plan B-The Chruvim; Busha or Kedusha

Rabbi Haber, Shlit’a, enlightens us on the consequence of Am Yisrael’s disobediences to Hashem. Am Yisrael, the “First Born”, like Adam HaRishon and Reuven, being impulsive and attempting to second guess or substitute our will for the Will of the Creator leads us to our ongoing choices of not thinking of Him before we act and not waiting for the Ratzon of Hashem to play out. It has led us on our much longer path of returning to Gan Eden. It has resulted in our constant struggle to reach our Ultimate Destiny. We must uproot our ego in order to get there.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 97.5 megabytes | 42:37

Kedushas Shabbos Part 126 - Watering the Weeds

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, makes the Chet (sin) of Adam understandable. In the context of history, the sin of Adam is the model for every sin that the Jewish People committed. Every one of our sins goes back to the first desire of Adam to “elevate” himself above what Hashem planned for Creation. The question is “whose in charge of me?” Do I make my own decisions about how I want Creation to be? Or, do I do it the way Hashem wants? The substance of ego is the “evil” that was ingested by Adam. It’s now within us. It will remain within us for the purpose of forcing us to recognize it and to overcome it. Are we for Hashem under all circumstances or are we for ourselves? Are we part of Hashem or are we separate? Ego is separation. Hashem is Unity. Our struggle is to remove the separation. Now that we have the amalgam of good and evil within us, when we water the good (the Garden that Hashem gave us), we could also be watering the evil (the weeds that we ingested). Our work in this world now is to struggle to water the good and kill the evil. May the Goodness of Hashem blossom and the weeds wither.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 112 megabytes | 49:20

Kedushas Shabbos Part 125 - Eitz HaDaas: Ingesting the Evil

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, through the words of Rav Tzadok HaKohen, explains that the Rah רע (bad or evil) that Adam ingested was by choice in order to make himself capable of being “an individual” separate from Hashem so that he could go to battle for Hashem. But that choice was fraught with danger as evil has a tendency to win over good. Therefore, he was excluded from Gan Eden to prevent him from becoming eternal. Shabbos comes to provide the Jewish People with the ability to reunify with Hashem and His Holy Name by reversing the פרודה divisions/separations that we’ve been given in the Holiness of the Seventh Day. Although we live in the world of separation פרוד but it all comes together if it all has One Purpose. The point of Shabbos is where we can contemplate on the disparate part of the world that was given to us and, in so doing, we unify the separation of the week that has past and make it Holy.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 121 - The Secret of Shabbos – Tying together a fragmented world

Rabbi Haber simplifies the secret of the שמע ישראל and ברוך שם כבוד מלכותו; Hashem sends us a fragmented world in spite of His UNITY, empowering each Jew to tie it all together. This is called ‘Creating Malchus’. The laboratory of this transformation is Shabbos. Hashem gave Mankind the job of Kingship.
Rabbi Yaacov Haber | 35.2 megabytes | 00:51:23

Kedushas Shabbos Part 120 - Preparing the Chariot for the King to Ascend

Rabbi Haber, Shlita, travels the Holy Zohar, and shows how the Matzav מצב (state/condition) of Echad אחד (the Unity) is the Shechina שכינה (Holy Presence) when/where the King can ascend His Throne to do His Kinging. Shabbos is the Kedushin קדושין (marriage) of Hashem with His People, Am Yisrael, in UNITY. On Shabbos the Jewish People connect the Briah (Creation) with Hashem. The Life Force of Creation, which Hashem has divided into two parts: Kodesh קדוש (Holiness/Purity) and the sitra achar סתרה אחר (Contradicted other/Powers of constriction), both give koach (energy) to the world. Hashem rules through both Life Forces. When we’re being holy, we’re connected through the stream of Kodesh קדוש. At other times, we’re being ruled by Hashem through the sitra achar (Powers of constriction) סתרה אחר. Let’s get married in Holiness to Hashem and be together with Him in Supreme Unification עליון יחוד! Cut away the powers of constriction אזמר בשבחין and give birth to the Neshama Yesayrah נשמה יתרה (Soulfulness/ Extra soul). Shabbos is the Laboratory of rebirth and Unification.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 119 - The Secret of Shabbos

Rabbi Haber teaches us the secret of shabbos. He shows us that on shabbos everything becomes one in the secret of one. Take all six manifestations (sefiros of gashmius that Hashem put into the world) and combine them with the time factor of the zmanos (the Holy Days - and the six days of Creation) and turn them into kadosh; build the mishkan within yourself. Everything that we do on Shabbos to bring malchus into the world is so that Hashem can sit on His throne of glory. Then the world will be fired up with the glory of His creation.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 118 - Revealing the Light; Touching Infinity

The Original “Light”, which Hashem hid, can be revealed if we know where and how to find it. The world of detail which Hashem has given the Jewish People must be“tied together within the Jew and within Shabbos in order to make this world a place for Malchus (Kingship) for Hashem. That is the mandate of Shabbos. The hidden light אור הגנוז is waiting deep within the root of the neshama (soul) of the Jew which can be experienced on Shabbos. When it is found and expressed, it will be revealed in the world. Then the world will have Oneg (delight) in the world and the world will then be prepared for the Kingship of Hashem. We will then make Heaven on Earth! Be a “Balanced Jew!” If you have touched the root of your neshama, you have touched Infinity the Ayn Sof אין סוף. There are 3 ways for the light of Hashem to reach this world: 1. השתלשלות (Chain reaction), 2. השלבשות (Hashem’s “clothing” of Light) 3. השרה (infusion of His Light - Tiferes תפארת Splendor/Glory).

Kedushas Shabbos Part 117 - Shamor v’Zachor; Cooked (בפנים-within oneself) on Shabbos

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, prepares us for our Shabbos performance and teaches us how to do our hitbonnenus התבוננות (observance) by taking the gashmius גשמיות (material/physical/corporeality) that Hashem has given us during the week, and also since the Six Days of Creation, and turning those gifts into ruchnius/shamamymi רוחניות/שמימי (spirituality/heavenly); returning our gifts from Hashem back to Him by “cooking” them within ourselves and making them holy. All of the 613 Commandments are for the Remembrance זכור and Guarding שמור of Shabbos and that is our Purpose in the world; shomer- the klal (separate yourself from things that you want - these are the things you should not do (the negative mitzvos) v’zachor -, & the prat פרט (the exceptions)- the things that you should do; the positive mitzvos. The Shomer Shabbos person is the one who stops doing things for himself. Ahava אהבה represents the positive mitzvos & Yirah יראה represents the negative mitzvos.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 116 - To Turn Nega to Oneg

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, reveals in this shiur that man’s job is to turn נגע into ענג. The “work” of the Jew on Shabbos is to take the Six Days of Creation (seeds which are the building blocks given to us by Hashem) and “make” them into a Creation of Kedusha. Every hebrew letter that Hashem uses in Creation and Recreation has a hidden power that is equivalent to the hidden power (the Ohr HaGonuz-Hidden Light) that is within every Jew and is within the essence of Shabbos. The recurring theme in His Creation is that of using that hidden power to nurture those seeds and erect an “edifice” that lights up the world with Kedusha. Shabbos is the “laboratory” in which the Jew does this “work”.It all depends on where you put your Ayin ע (Eyes)!

Kedushas Shabbos Part 115 - Heaven and Earth: Mercy and Justice

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, “builds” Creation according to its two main characteristics, Justice and Mercy. Everything that HaKadosh Boruch Hu created was for the sake of the essence of Shabbos which is the essence of the Jew. Thus, the cycle of Creation revolves around how the Jewish People inhale and exhale Shabbos. It should be “lived,” according to the Rav, who cites from Rav Tzadok HaKohein, in Oneg (joy/pleasure/delight)! The Jewish People are the “switch” that keeps the flow of Creation cycling ever higher.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 114 - The Aching Footsteps of Mashiach: The Ox & The Donkey

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, delves further into the reasons for and the mechanism of the tikun (correction) of the sin of Adam HaRishon. The connection of this tikun to the necessity of death is the foundation of the Final Redemption and a new Beginning for Creation when there will be no more war, contention, negativity, sickness or death. This is the mechanism of the Unification of Mashiach ben Yosef and Mashiach ben Dovid. Rav Haber shows the meaning of the symbolism of the Ox and the Donkey as they relate to Mashiach ben Yosef and Mashiach ben Dovid.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 113 - The Components of Mashiach

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, Shlit’a, breaks open the secret of how the mixture or blending of the Malchus, Kingship of Yosef and Dovid was set up in the union of Boaz and Rus. The lineage of Dovid HaMelech: Yehuda & Tamar - the cradle of chutzpah - begot Peretz - the fence breaker/the trail blazer, Peretz begot Chetzron, Chetzron begot Rom, Rom begot Aminadov, Aminadov begot Nachshon - who walked into the water-also a trail blazer, Nachshon begot Salma, Salma begot Boaz, Boaz begot Ovayd, Ovayd begot Yishai, and Yishai begot Dovid - who also inherited traits from Peretz and Nachshon. This is Dovid’s yichus, lineage which produced the character strength of the King of Israel. Kingship is the ability to “break out of the fence.” A king must be able to take risks. There is no kingship in mediocrity. As between Yehuda & Tamar and Dovid, Melech HaMashiach, why do we need Boaz and Rus? Boaz, according to the Zohar, is called “Tzadik Yesod Olam”, The Righteous Foundation of the World. This is also the label that the Zohar uses for Yosef. Noach was a Tzadik, Boaz was a Tzadik and Yosef was a Tzadik; all with the character trait of Yesod, foundation. Boaz received the title of Tzadik Yesod Olam because and at the very moment that he was nokar es habris, meaning that he withheld his personal desire to marry Rus for the sake of doing the right thing in the granary when Rus offered herself to him as a wife. That is why he was compared to Yosef (vis a vis Yosef’s avoiding of the advances of the daughter of Potifar). And at that moment, Boaz combined the Kingship of Yosef with the Kingship of Dovid/Yehuda. Palti ben Layish was even stronger in his ability to withhold his personal desires for the sake of someone else. His “wife” Michal, was given to him by her father, King Shaul (who had taken her away from Dovid). Palti ben Layish placed a two sided sword in the bed between himself and Michal so as not to usurp the wife of Dovid. The midah of Yosef must come before the midah of Dovid. What is the tikun for the Aretz? To be able to reign over the gashmius before the gashmius reigns over you; to reign over your inclinations.The integration of the midah of Yosef into the midah of Dovid; the strength of the Redemption.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 112 - Ohr HaGanuz: The Sprouting of Mashiach

Rav Haber, Shlit"a, helps us discover how the Hidden Light that Hashem made at the beginning of Creation will be revealed at the End of Days. First there will be an upheaval within the consciousness of the Jewish People to transform itself by struggling against our nature by humbling ourselves before Hashem. The secret of “empowerment” is to tame our negative impulses. This will bring the Malchus out of the filth and dirt of our averos, sins, and result in the Kingship of the Mashiach. The Ohr HaGonuz, the Hidden Light, was made at the beginning of Creation. It will start to come back as the development of the days of Mashiach comes back. Things will then start to become more clear. The joining of Ruth to Boaz, as explained by Rav Haber, according to Rav Tzadok: It was “THEN” - אז that the seed of Mashiach was being planted. Boaz was a product of Yehuda & Tamar. Ruth was a product of Lot and the daughters of Lot. Dovid was a product of Ruth and Boaz, as well as a product of Yehuda and Tamar & Lot and the daughters of Lot. The story of Yehuda & Tamar was a parallel story to the story of the selling of Yosef into bondage into Egypt. Yosef resisted the temptation of bat Potifar. Yehuda was different. The next step in Malchus Beis Dovid is Boaz & Ruth. When Yehuda & Tamar come together, it’s darkness, it’s a mystery, it’s Ohr HaGanuz. But the hidden Ohr, light is Malchus. The Ohr of Dovid has to come from a tzemach, sprouting from the dirt. It’s got to be buried or hidden. We’re waiting for the tikun to come to the point where the Ohr can be revealed. We have had moments of clarity. When Mashiach comes he’ll be wearing a begged, clothing with (Oz) אז written all over it. “אז ימלא שחוק פינו - Then laughter will fill our mouths.”

Kedushas Shabbos Part 109 - Erev Shabbos: A Time of Confusion and Conflict

Rabbi Yaacov Haber, illuminates erev Shabbos and explains why and how we’re obligated to make a tikkun habriah, correction of creation, at this time. Time being both personal and global. We’re in the era of “erev Shabbos” of creation. Neither the personal erev Shabbos nor the global erev Shabbos is an easy time. There is tension in the air. The tikkun is more desperate on erev Shabbos. Where there’s chessed (kindness) there’s rah (bad/evil). If you’re a universalist you have to tolerate rah. The tikkun can only take place in the rah. Where there’s rah there’s the potential for a tremendous amount of tov (good). It’s all about haficha (reversal). As we see from Bilaam and the Purim story. From the rah has to come the bracha. The darkness is closer to Hashem because it’s deeper. On Shabbos, we need to find our own shortcomings and fix them. So, at the end of the story, meaning the end of days, which is the global Shabbos, or at the end of the week, which is our personal Shabbos, we can look back and see that the things in our life that we thought were bad are really good.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 110 - Distinction and Dissonance: The Path to Unity

Rav Haber takes us on a journey through the process of creation of the four worlds, atzila, briah, yetzira, and asiyah. By making distinctions, Hashem created malchus. In the symphony of creation everything plays its own piece. The Conductor instructs the briah (creation). The Rav relates the macrocosm of creation to the work that we as individuals do to acknowledge the Creator and to make our song to Him in our davening (prayer) and in the mitzvos that we do to put the pieces of the “puzzle” together and to bring the Mashiach. When Hakodosh Boruch Hu created the world, He created “mixtures.” Then He divided and made distinctions. In distinction we get clarity. In mixture we have confusion. As Mashiach comes, there’s more and more distinction.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 111 - The Greatness of Hashem, Clothed in Hod V’Hadar

The sugya, chapter of Hod or glory and Hadar, majesty in the olamos, worlds and in the sefiros, emanations. An “electrifying” journey into the workings of creation of the world and the development of Am Yisrael from the desert, the ephemeral existence of living above nature, to the Land the existence of Malchus, the dirty work of rectifying the sin of Adam HaRishon. Rav Yaacov Haber explores Tehillim (Psalm) 104, the Malbim and the Alshich. The judge should not be corrupt (be distorted). That is, don’t lift up (give special consideration to) the poor, & don’t acknowledge the station of the rich. Hadar is the outer or external beauty of what everything has because of what it is. Hod has to do with inner beauty, the very form of the human. Moshe Rabeinu had Hod & Hadar and Yehoshua only had Hadar. If Yehoshua had had both Hod & Hadar it would have been too much. No one would have been able to stand before him. What does that mean? Yehoshua didn’t have an “inside”. If Yehoshua had had inner beauty he would not have been approachable. Yehoshua brought things down to earth. He brought the nation into Eretz Yisrael. In the the midbar, everything was from shamayim. Everything was coming down. So Moshe and Aaron were Netzach & Hod. They were the agents of Hashem in the midbar experience, where everything was from Shamayim. But, when we came into the Land, everything was acquired with struggle. Everything is nice until you get to the “ground.” Malchus (being down to earth) is the hard part. The leader of Klal Yisrael had to be “of the Land” and that’s called Hadar. Hadar is Malchus. Malchus causes problems. But it’s all about making the world a place for Hashem’s Presence to rest once again.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 108 - Yishmael the Pera Adam

Rabbi Haber teaches the value of Yishmael and Avraham’s confusion about why he was ordained to have Yitzchak with Sarah. An unbelievable journey into the depths of the roots of the Jewish People in Avraham and Yitzchak and why, at the end of days, the separation of the energies of the world will be unified under Mashiach which will be the repair of the sin of Adam. Avraham’s tension over how to be m’taken the sin of Adam was assuaged by the birth of Yitzchak . Shabbos is our vehicle through which to rebuild unity of purpose in creation. Distinction is truth and light, but separation is falsehood. You must be able to see outside of yourself to know the truth! What is unity?

Kedushas Shabbos Part 107 - Lower is Higher; The Signs of Mashiach

Lower is Higher. Yesod (essence/formation) is the ephemeral kingship. The true kingship has no essence. In order to be a King, one must have no personal honor. Jealousy is antithetical to true kingship. A king can not be a prophet. Prophecy has everything to do with “me.” Kingship is all about giving up everything to be part of the “earth” part of creation. You can’t be a king without people. A king must have roots in the “dirt” of the world and must live in the world. The competition between King Saul and King David goes all the way back to the competition between Yehuda and Yosef. There has to be a Yosef before there is a David. There has to be a Mashiach ben Yosef before there is a Mashiach ben David.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 106 - Adam was Created for the Honor of Shabbos

In this shiur, the Rav sensitively discusses the difference between the Jew and the Non-Jew. The workings of the Mashiach ben David and the Mashiach ben Yosef is apparent today as it was in the time of Yosef HaTzadik and Yehuda in Parashat Vayigash. Both are Kings, but they each have a different purpose. Yosef was universal, Yehuda was specifically for the Jewish People. But, at the end of days, Mashiach ben Dovid will be the universalist. It’s all about fixing the sin of Adam and bringing the world back to the Garden of Eden.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 103 - Space, Time & Soul

Rabbi Haber Shlita reveals the exterior and interior aspects of Space, Time and Soul. The sense of smell is different than that of the other senses as it has a dimension of truth. The sense of smell reveals the inner depths of Shabbos; the secret of the inner dimension of Shabbos, (the aspect of Time).

Kedushas Shabbos Part 101 - Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai & Shabbos

Rabbi Haber discusses the reaction of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai after he emerges from the cave for the first and second time and how it relates to the male and female aspects that Hashem, may His Name be blessed, created in the world and also the male and female aspects of Shabbos Kodesh. How is the world different after the chet of Adam HaRishon than it would have been had Adam never sinned?

Kedushas Shabbos Part 102 - The Sign of Mashiach - Ruach Apeinu; “The Aroma & the Light”

Rabbi Haber discusses how King David, and before him, Yaacov Avinu were the foundations of Mashiach. The first public example of Tshuva is Dovid HaMelech. But, before him, Yaacov Avinu became an Ish Shalem in Shechem, 50 years after he bought the birthright from Eisav. What does the sense of smell have to do with the “Light” that Mashiach will bring to the world? The special power of the scion of King David is the power of smell and the Ohr (Light) after the chet (sin).

Kedushas Shabbos Part 100 - Yitzchak Avinu the Rebbe as our Defense Attorney before Hashem

Rabbi Haber shlita explains that Yitzchak Avinu's Seeing the Shechinah and Seeing into Shamayim when he was on the mizbe'ach IS THE GOAL of Klal Yisrael; we must reach the level of the closeness to Hashem that Yitzchak Avinu reached when he was on the mizbe'ach. Can we attain that GOAL notwithstanding our sins? Do we need a defense attorney? Yitzchak Avinu, in a logical discussion with Hashem, exempts himself as a defender of Klal Yisrael and defers to Hashem, the Ultimate Judge. "They are YOUR children," after all!

Kedushas Shabbos Part 99 - Pachad Yitzchak: Seeing Without Eyes

Rabbi Haber discusses the difference between the "Kiddush Hashem" that Avraham Avinu did when he walked into the oven of Nimrod and was saved from the fire by Hashem and the "Korban LaSHem" that was performed by Yitzchak Avinu when he presented himself on the mizbe'ach. He was the ultimate Sacrifice. He describes the vision of Yitzchak, who saw the Shechinah while looking up on the mizbe'ach and how it was on a higher level than Avraham's Kiddush Hashem. Avraham Avinu "Knew" Hashem. But Yitzchak Avinu "Saw" the Shechina.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 98 - The Blindness of Yitzchak

Rabbi Yaacov Haber שליט’א delves into what our Sages, of blessed memory, say concerning the Blindness of Yitzchak Avinu and how it relates to Our Purpose (Tachlis HaShlamus) in This World, that of attaining the Fear of G-D. Rabbi Haber explains what it will be like in the World to Come in the Days of Mashiach, when our “freedom of choice” will be so clear that we, in effect, will not need a “freedom of choice.” The “strength” of the “freedom of choice” ends when Mashiach comes. Is “sight” True “vision?”

Kedushas Shabbos Part 97 - Bigdei Shabbos

Why was Lot so important to Avraham Avinu? Who or What does Lot represent? And, why does Avraham Avinu go to such amazing lengths to save him and then return him to Sodom? Rav. Haber presents a very deep and extensive explanation, quoting from Parashat Lech Lecha, in which he answers this question and relates it to the Mashiach.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 3 - Man’s role in Tikkun Olam

"Rav Tzadok HaKohein" An analysis of the human participation in the Creation based on the Sefer Kedushas Shabbos. Tikkun and Churban are so close that at times it is hard to discern them from each other. Our work after the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, is our unique role in Tikkun Olam.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 2 - Partnership of God and man in creation

"Rav Tzadok HaKohein" An analysis of the human participation in the Creation based on the Sefer Kedushas Shabbos. It is an extremely important element of creation that God partners with Man in creation, God does not finish creation by himself but he depends on Man. This the most basic and deepest of Tzelem Elokim, man being created in the image of God, Elokim is the name of Hashem used in creation. This is taken a step further to explain the concept of "Tzafon Hapasuach" that there is a vacuum in creation. This has many significances, however this "North" is of dubious character as it can be good but it can also be bad. This "North" refers to our participation in creation to fill the void. In this partnership, we face free choice: will we do Tikkun Olam or will we destroy the world. The way to choose the Tikkun is only with Yiras Shomayim.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 1 - Shabbos: Culmination of six days of work

"Rav Tzadok HaKohein" An analysis of the human participation in the Creation based on the Sefer Kedushas Shabbos. The whole Kedusha of Shabbos is based on the six days preceding it. Hashem also does not have a Shabbos unless He puts in six days of work of Tikkun Olam.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 104 - How the Power of Choice is the Driving Force of Creation

Rabbi Haber, Shlita, investigates how the power of choice that we have is the mechanism by which Hashem’s Hashgacha Pratis (Divine Providence) runs the world. A fascinating look at the role of the actions (and perhaps even the thoughts) of mankind (and the individual in particular) has a direct causative effect on how the Creator, may His Name be blessed, runs the world. This profound and thoughtful discussion provides a deep insight into the workings of the ongoing creations in the time and space of existence.

Kedushas Shabbos Part 105 - Dig it! Who Mirrors Creation

Rabbi Haber reveals the mechanism for changing nature through digging beyond the stars. Yitzchak Avinu and Avraham Avinu, before him, were shown by Hashem the secret of changing nature through going very deeply into the world outside and beyond nature and accessing the roots of Creation in order to grow their own produce (the partnering with Hashem in Creation). They were able to induce changes in nature through uprooting their environment with special prayers mirroring the Will of Hashem that they succeed in going above nature in order to fix the world which is suffering in a lower state of existence from the sin of Adam HaRishon. We, as their progeny, are also capable of changing nature for the same purpose. We do so whenever we take anything in Creation and elevating it through brachot and tefillot and by recognizing the G-Dliness within it.
