Some Important LInks while on Hold
Dixie Yid has just completed a translation of R. Yitzchak Meyer Morgenstern's Kuntress on the practical manifestations of Chochma and Bina within the Jewish people (i.e. Ashkenazim-Sephardim, Chassidus-GR"A, Breslov-Chabad). The introductory post can be found here, and each post links to the next. You might also find the specific posts on Chabad and Breslov, and Chassidus and GR"A particularly interesting. Enjoy and please leave comments with any feedback.
Mystical Paths has some interesting posts, inspired in part by A Simple Jew, on “The Animal Within.” Here’s Part One and Part Two.
A Simple Jew himself has a fascinating post on “A Half-Hourly Chime,” which I hope to complement here by Tisha B’Av [see my comment there].
Rabbi Tal Moshe Zwecker [another Simple Jew connection] has just started his own blog, Be'er Mayim Chaim: Wellsprings of Chassidus & Jewish Meditation, which features the Baal Shem Tov's teachings, Classical Chassidus, Noam Elimelech, Kedushas Levi, Degel Machaneh Efraim, Meor Einayim, the Rebbe Reb Zusha of Anipoli and many more. Also, you can obtain Jewish Chassidic and Kabbalah Meditation classes on MP3 recordings.
Finally, Yeranen Yaakov informs us that the Kinor is Almost Done:
ShofarNews has an article (Hebrew) on the almost-completed Kinor (harp/lyre) for the Levi'im to play when the Third Beis HaMikdash will be rebuilt בב"א. The Temple Institute (Machon HaMikdash) is behind the project, as usual. Here's a link to pictures of the in-progress development of the Kinor.
