Talmud - Midrash Mas. Demai Chapter 6 (page 286 of the pdf)
The House of Seven Beggars Synagogue presents The Shul Study Hall. Each Tuesday at 8:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) we will explore the various laws, traditions, writings and concepts of Judaism with your host, Rabbi Aryel Nachman ben Chaim - Senior Rabbi for the House of Seven Beggars Synagogue. The House of Seven Beggars Synagogue (http://sevenbeggars.com) is a virtual synagogue serving those of the Jewish community who are unable to attend a physical synagogue for reasons of distance, physical restrictions or lack of a Jewish community. It is our mission to ensure that every Jew who desires to be part of a community has that opportunity. The House of Seven Beggars Synagogue is a free and open traditional synagogue. Synagogue members and gusts are welcome to attend the studies.
Rabbi Wolkoff leads us in the 3rd of a 5-part series to explore the beauty of Rabbinic literature. Oral law and tradition is the basis of the teachings which when presented by a learned teacher, can provide its students with inspiration and insight into the world that we live in. Some teachings are timeless and with patience and maturity the text and poems in these works can lead to personal growth. So come join Rabbi Wolkoff and challenge yourself to think and connect with something bigger than yourself by learning from those who came before us.
The Torah describes during the time, when Bnai Yisrael were in the Sinai desert, when Amalek attacked Israel. It was during the time when all the surrounding peoples feared to mess with Israel because they knew, as a result of G-d's liberation of Israel from Egypt, that Israel had divine providence on their side. The Midrash compares Amalek's attack on Israel to someone who jumps into a boiling hot pool. Everyone with sense would know not to jump into the boiling hot pool because they would be burned. But the idiot jumped in and was burned. But the fear of jumping in was cooled off. G-d commanded Israel to wipe out the meomory of Amalek. But the fear of attacking Israel was cooled. But when taking a closer look, it's not that G-d advocated a literal genocide of actual people and their descendants. The descendants of those Amalekites are already assimilated. But the essense of Amelek remains. And the essense of Amalek is to undermine G-d and his unity through undermining the Jewish soul, which naturally clings to G-dliness, Torah, and mitzvot. The essense of Amalek has been waging a constant war against the Jewish neshamah [soul] through belitttling Torah study and mitzvot observance. The essense of Amalek has been exploiting secular society in order to get the Jew to put Torah study and mitzvah observance in the back seat. I will discuss how the international secular left is one of the latest manifestations of Amalek, as well as the constant hostility to Israel. I will analyze why the world hates the Jews with a fervor, why the world demonizes Israel, why even secular Zionists get demonized for caring about Israel, and why they bash Ultra-Orthodox Jews for not joining an army that they themselves hate and falsely accuse of Apartheid. Tune in, as I discuss Amalek's war against G-d and its attempt to lead Jews astray by Gentilizing them and assimilating them.
We're honored to have Rachel Pollack join us again tonight, this time to talk about unusual tarot interpretations and Tarot stories, or midrash.
So what is Tarot Midrash? A midrash is a story that expands on a moment in the Bible. the story of Adam and Eve is very short in Genesis, but thousands of pages have been written about it. the official meanings for any Tarot card are actually very limited, but we go very deeply into the picture, into possibilities, speculations, details, and so on.
Rachel explains, "In some ways, the idea of odd interpretations is a midrash idea, that is, meanings that are not part of the original design or concepts, but are a meaningful and valuable extension. Some of the myths I cite in Tarot Wisdom are midrash, both originally (that is, not in the Bible) and for Tarot, since it's unlikely that say, Rapunzel was in the mind of the Tarot creators. But even more narrowly, when we talk about how the woman on the Rider 8 of Swords can walk away from the swords that is not strictly in the picture and so is a kind of midrash. So--here you are at the birth of a big idea (well, maybe)."
Tonight, let's join a true Grand Master and find the unusual in the cards together.
