    Why Heaven & Hell Aren't Mentioned More in the Torah?

    As reward and punishment for the mitzvot, the Torah mainly describes that we will receive rain, victory, peace etc., but very rarely mentions heaven and hell. Rav Kook, in his innovative way, offers an original, beautiful and meaningful explanation, in addition to discussing transitions between exile and redemption.

    Balancing Discipline & Pleasantness Today!

    Rav Kook already foresaw a century ago that democratic culture necessitates placing more stress in raising our children on pleasantness, rather than on discipline. This is an ideal in our evolving world, but also wise and beneficial. Discipline is always important but the balance changes over time.

    Be Wary of Foreign Influence

    Ein Aya

    Seize the Momentum- Don't Damper Progress!

    Ein Aya Shabbat 2, 290

    The nature is for each young generation to innovate new ideas in everything, including spirituality. The personal experience of meeting these new, often charismatic leaders from up close, helps verify their innovations and legitimacy, and enable the generation to decide if those new ideas' time has come. The older leaders of the previous generation play an important role here, where their conservatism and experience can be crucial but also may be destructive and hamper advancements (especially if egos come into play), and especially in today's generation of geula [=national and spiritual redemption], the greatest revolution in world history.
