Grounding Energy of Cheshvan” by Rabbi Ora
“After the intense inner work of teshuva
during the month of Tishrei, the month of
Cheshvan offers just what we need to re-ground, to
connect with the earth in a way that will support us in
manifesting in ourselves and in the world the vision we set
for our new year.”
Ark” by Rabbi Nate Degroot, Hazon
Indeed, while Cheshvan is a rabbi’s time to reflect and recharge, it is also
the time that Noah’s flood started raging and we
are reminded of our climate contract with God.
“What could Noah have been thinking, we wonder, as
he built his ark, watching the people go by, knowing
full-well God’s intent to wipe out land and flesh
alike, and yet never reaching out to his neighbors or
peers. No warning of what God has told him. No
encouraging them to build their own arks. Or work
together. No impetus to petition God?”
