Audio Lectures on the Torah Portions of Bamidbar

Bamidbar: Can We Give Birth to Ourselves and to Others?   (19:11 min):
Teaching is much more than just relating information. The true teacher imbues his students with his very essence. In this audio meditation, Rabbi Ginsburgh describes how the devoted teaching of Moses emanated from the depths of his soul. When we understand the dynamics of this type of teaching, we can learn to convey our own Torah essence to others, recreating them and ourselves, and filling the entire world with the revelation of God.

Shlach: Holy Espionage   (21:41 min):
The twelve spies sent by Moses to scout the Land of Israel were to be a preview to the conquest of the Holy Land by the entire nation. Instead, the spies spoke ill of the Land, sowing despair in the hearts of their brethren. In this audio meditation, Rabbi Ginsburgh explains how we can rectify this major sin. By becoming “holy spies” we can transform our collective consciousness to Messianic, “area” consciousness in which we physically see the Divine pearls covering the Land of Israel and all reality.

When we integrate these qualities into our lives, we become more rectified leaders on both a personal and communal level.
