This New Year's 5775** message of hope if brought to you by George Deek in Oslo. Next post we'll get back to the intricacies of Golem Building :-)
** - 5775 is not the age of the planet or Universe (see Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan's book on the age of the Universe). It's the time in years since a human gained Divine consciousness in this epoch of human evolution and development. If Adam was the first human ever, why did Cain build a city for his son. Seems like a lot of building for only a handful of humans on the planet... Whilst on the subject of not taking scripture at face value... how are your studies of Kabbalah progressing?
