Decoding Yom Kippur and Sukkot in BOCA RATON
The Kabbalah Centre of Boca Raton – Individually, Yom Kippur and Sukkot appear to be Jewish holidays. However, if we step back and use a kabbalistic lens, we see that although each one serves a different purpose, together, they represent a metaphysical process that allows all of humanity to create the spiritual foundation for the coming year. This allows us to have more energy to enhance our physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. A powerful cosmic opening, Yom Kippur gives us the chance to nullify the judgments of Rosh Hashanah and receive our new destiny. Knowing what is taking place in the 99% spiritual realm on Yom Kippur can help us connect to the cleansing energy of Binah, removing any negativity we’ve caused in the past year. Somewhat overshadowed, Sukkot is a potent cosmic opening in its own right. On Sukkot we construct our spiritual vessel, designed to contain the immense amount of Light that we worked to attain on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Don’t miss this opportunity to better understand the true meaning of Yom Kippur and Sukkot. Join us to discover kabbalistic tools for connecting to these powerful days and bringing to fruition our spiritual work during the High Holidays.
