What we need to fight LGBTI discrimination
Killed by Isolation: Amichai’s speech at Orlando Vigil
How to enter the Holy of Holies in your own backyard: Into Succot, with my YK sermon, in joy.
Into the Succah we go. This past Yom Kippur I spoke about the notion of the Holy of Holies being a state of mind and heart we can access at any time to remember that we are holy and every single living thing is as holy. The succah is a sort of holy of holies as well – a womb like container for sacred feasts, intimate conversations and celebration of harvest and life. Keep it real, dry, festive. Pleased to share the vid. of my YK Sermon with the teaching of Rav Kook that I quoted:
קודש הקודשים הוא יסוד הכל, יסוד היסודות, למעלה מכל שם, תואר וכנוי, המתרומם מעל כל הגיון, גם של קודש, באותה אין־הסופיות שהוא מתרומם מעל כל חול . קודש העליון, ששם גם החול וגם הקודש באים מתוכן אחד ומתגלים בתור צביון אחד. (ראי״ה קוק)
The Holy of Holies is the foundation of all, the source of sources, above all that is named, all attributes and known things, beyond logic, beyond that which is sacred, with the same infinite sense that it transcends all that is mundane and so called secular. The Holy of Holies is supreme sacred, where sacred and secular stem from the same source, and are revealed as one.
