Torah, Art and the Creative Process     (90.36 min) 
At its source, art is a paradox–giving physical form to faith in the One God, Who has no form. In this audio meditation, Rabbi Ginsburgh delves into the primordial essence of God that is the root of artistic expression. When we understand the process by which God created the ultimate work of art–the world–we can also find the point in our own psyche that is the source of all creativity.

Topics covered in this lecture include: The four meanings of the root of faith; The Kabbalistic model of point, line, area; How does the Garden of Eden reflect the artistic process?; The two levels of pleasure expressed by art; Why are talented artists often on the verge of insanity?; The equality of everything, anything and nothing; Why must nothingness overpower omnipotence in order to create?

Measuring Apptitude: The 12 Senses and Education

On the High Priest’s breastplate, 12 precious stones were set. Each stone represented not only one of the twelve tribes of Israel but also one of the twelve general apptitudes that characterize the makeup of every human being. The High Priest was the model educator as he was able to identify each “student’s” apptitude by the holy stones on his breastplate. To be an educator requires that we too learn to identify our students’ special gifts, which they need to complete their life’s journey. Click here to listen. 

Hebrew: The Ideal Language for Ordering Information

Hebrew has 22 letters, 231 gates, and 1540 roots. It is the only completely logically structured language and therefore presents us with the ideal model for organizing information and meaning. Hebrew, the holy language of the Bible, by which G-d created the world is thus the perfect language for all information systems. Click here to listen.

Kabbalah and Scientific Progress

One of the most revolutionary ideas proposed by modern science is that it is not the sun that revolves around us, but we that revolve around the sun. The response of the holy Rabbi Israel of Ruzhin to this idea, dubbed heliocentrism, provides the basis for a seminal discussion of the impact of Kabbalah on science (and vice versa). Heliocentrism and the geocentrism it replaced are discussed in terms of the Divine service of the Tzadikim, the righteous leaders of the generation. Click here to listen.
