When our souls descend into this world we find ourselves in a state of “klipot, layers.” These layers are the cognitive distortions we are meant to spend a life time breaking through.
Growth always starts within darkness, confusion, and illusion. We move up and we fall, move up and fall. In chassidut and deeper lessons connected to the Torah this process is analogous to leaving “Mitzrayim, Egypt,” the place of constricted G-D consciousness.
Our job is to discover light within the darkness that we find ourselves in. It is literally the descending that holds the greatest chance to reveal the light hidden within.
Right now darkness surrounds us and penetrates us. Endless information, unlimited choices, and a world which appears to be more and more chaotic has pushed us into a state of collective despair.
Where and how can we move forward?
We must not fear. The darkness we are experiencing is the moment before the greatest light is revealed – all we need to do is to hold on tight.
(Likutey Moharan 6 & 36, Orot Techiya, Likutey Halachot Hilchot Pesach)
Our souls yearn to be free, so much so that it is as if they are weeping for redemption. Dovid Mark continues his class on the Lost Princess by Rebbe Nachman.

Our world is designed to be confusing – so much so that we are often pulled onto paths that effectively draw us away from our mission here. How do we draw out the good from within all the darkness? Dovid Mark discusses this in reference to his ongoing class on Rebbe Nachman’s story “The Lost Princess.”
The journey continues. What are we searching for in life? Why are we here? Can we retrieve that part of ourselves we feel is lost within the noise and distractions of modern society? What is expected of us? What happens if I fail?
Join Dovid Mark on a journey we can all relate to – a journey we all share and yet is unique to each one of us. In our modern world, where money drives our lives and the products we are shown grab at our senses, we yearn for something more. In this episode, which is a continuation of Rebbe Nachman’s famous story the Lost Princess, we learn the secrets of our Created space and its Divine root embedded within. Why are we here? And what is our mission?
With UNESCO set to vote on the status of the Cave of the Patriarchs, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely defended Jewish rights to our second holiest location to the foreign ministers whose countries sit on the UNESCO committee yesterday.
UNESCO voted on accepting “Palestine” as a member in 2011 and since then used that decision to help erase Jewish history and connection to Israel.
As President Donald Trump sends an armada to tackle North Korea’s nuclear weapons, perhaps the USA should learn from Israel how to take care of clandestine nuclear programs. As evidenced from Operation Orchard both the Mossad and special forces destroyed the North Korean made Syrian reactor.
The secret? Israel’s success is from above and needs no armadas or fanfare.
Watch parts one and two of Operation Orchard below brought to you by Rav Lazer Brody of Emuna Outreach:
“There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” Haley told CNN anchor Jake Tapper. “If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government that’s peaceful and stable with Assad.”
“We don’t see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there,” Haley added.
Today former Arab Knesset member Ghattas said that terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands are actually “Freedom Fighters”.
We decided to remind him who those “Freedom Fighters” really are.
