Understanding Elohim


Shabbat Shalom Achim (brothers and sisters in Hebrew)

This is the beginning of my weekly Torah Portion. For the next year, each week, I will be teaching from the Torah Portion. In one year, we will go through the whole Torah from Genesis to Deuteronomy.

This week is the Torah Portion called Bereshit which means “In the beginning”.  This lesson is a very important one as it helps set us up for the entire year as we read the Torah. This is equally important in our lives because we will come away from the lesson with a deeper understanding of who Elohim is and what He means to us.

I will be teaching what Elohim means because many people do not really have the correct understanding of what Elohim means and to do this we must go to the Hebrew language as well as with a Hebraic mindset.

יברכך יהוה וישׁמרך׃
יאר יהוה פניו אליך ויחנך׃
ישׂא יהוה פניו אליך וישׂם לך שׁלום׃

YHVH will kneel before you presenting gifts and will guard you with a hedge of protection,
YHVH will illuminate the wholeness of his being toward you bringing order and he will beautify you,
YHVH will lift up his wholeness of being and look upon you and he will set in place all you need to be whole and complete (Numbers 6:24-26)

Have a blessed Shabbat.
