Rosh Hashanah 5779 in Moscow


Full schedule of holidays from Rosh Hashanah
to Simchat Torah in the Moscow Kabbalah Center.

Every year a person is given a chance to live their life in a new way. 22 days of the new year is a time when we can change everything.

According to the kabbalistic calendar, the year begins with the month of Tishrei (Libra) - this is the time when, on a spiritual level, all our good and bad deeds are added to the scales. This is the time of reassessment, purification, renewal, after which we get an 'energy budget' for the coming year. The first 22 days of Tishrei (Libra) are designed to help us build a vessel for this energy and get exactly what we need in the coming year.

Preparation: Slichot
Before the beginning of the process of transformation, we 'cut' ourselves from the past, ask for forgiveness for our mistakes in the past year, and clean ourselves with special prayer and meditations.

Saturday, September 1 (the night of Saturday, the 1st to Sunday 2nd September)
00:00 Gathering guests
00:00 - 01:00 Lecture and Slichot

ROSH HASHANAH (1st - 2nd day) 9 - 11 September
Rosh Hashanah is the first important step in the way of the upcoming transformational days. With or without you, on this day, a 'trial' begins on the spiritual level, which will determine your future destiny. Shofar, prayer, meditation and consciousness are instruments that abolish the most severe sentences.

YAMIM NORAIM, from the 3rd to the 9th day
These 7 days are called 'yamim noraim' - 'days of trembling.' Here every day of the week affects all the coming days of the year: Monday of this week determines what will be every Monday throughout the year, and so on. These days we must remember the Teshuvah - this is the kabbalistic concept of 'back to the future', in which we can correct the mistakes of the past and thus influence the future.
In this we are helped by Shabbat Shuva - reading the chapter of Vaeleh, which raises us over the limitations of time and space, making teshuvah easier.

YOM KIPUR, the 10th day
The first ten days we purify each of the 10 Sefirot, and in Yom Kippur we reach Malchut. On this day, Malchut, in her purity, becomes like Bina and rises to her. Bina is the source of all Mercy, all the blessings and energy that we need in the coming year. But you can get all this abundance with only one condition. Since Bina is pure sharing and refusal to receive, we should strive to be like her and keep fasting so as not to 'fall' from this high energy level.

From the 11th to the 14th day
From the first day of Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur, we built and cleansed our vessel. After the cleansing, it is time to fill this vessel with the Light of Mercy. For this, we have seven days of the Sukkot holiday. But Sukkot needs training. 4 days between Yom Kippur and Sukkot are the four letters of the highest Name - Yod-Key-Vav-Key, through which we connect to the Light. In these days, the construction of the altar in the Temple, built by King Solomon, was completed, in parallel we build a sukkah in this time period.

SUKKOT, from the 15th to the 21st day

This time, when we stay in the Sukkah (tent) and daily use lulav - these tools serve as a kind of 'antenna', which attracts the correct wavelengths. These days it is recommended to spend as much time as possible in the sukkah, and, importantly, with the right mind. That is, while in the sukkah, you need to study, scan the Zohar, meditate and raise the sparks of Light at a meal.

Personal lulav - 4000 rubles.
Attract Light: a tool for daily communication in Sukkot!

Hoshana Raba and Simchat Beit Hashoeva, the 21st day (at night)

All the blessings inscribed in the history of our life during Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot are manifested within 24 hours, known as Oshana Rabba. The Zohar calls this concept 'hotem' - 'seal', since we are given the opportunity to 'seal' these blessings to preserve them throughout the next 12 months.

If any negativity has invaded the book of our life in the coming year, Hoshana Raba - 'Great deliverance' - is the last chance to purify it. Also this night we celebrate Simchat Beit Hasoeva - the joy of scooping water. We know that water has memory and personifies talent, so we also get the power to remember about joy and our power even in difficult moments.

 SIMCHAT TORAH, the 22nd day

Simchat Torah is the final point of the transformation route for the month of Tishrei. Kabbalah teaches that the way to the perfect life that is intended for each one of us is encrypted in the Torah. This holiday is called 'Joy of Torah', because we are given a chance to destroy the wall between who we are today and who we are destined to be. On this day, we complete the whole Torah by reading the last chapter of Vezot HaBracha and receive the Light of our potential - the Surrounding Light. During the year, this Light will push us towards our true goal, helping us to grow spiritually.
