THE PROHIBITION OF SEXUAL FANTASIES by Rabbi Daniel Frish
*It is forbidden for a man to engage in sexual fantasies. This applies to single men, and to married men alike. Not only is a married man not allowed to fantasize about other women, he is also not to preoccupy himself with sexual fantasies regarding his wife. Many men are lax in this matter, falsely believing that everything is permissible with one’s wife.

“BE HOLY!”

It is written in the Torah:
“Speak to the entire community of Israel, and say to them, Be holy, for I the L-rd your God am holy” (Vayikra, 19:2). The meaning of “Be holy” in this verse is to separate oneself from forbidden sexual relationships (See Rashi, there).

Tikun HaYesod - Learning and Penitential Prayer PDF Print E-mail
Kabbalists' Writings
Written by Rabbi Aharon Rota   
Monday, 16 December 2013

Introduction

by Tzvi Fishman

As we have previously written in the essay, “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf,” that while repentance is always accepted before G-d, the 10 days of t'shuva between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, and the period of “Shovavim” (the 6 straight weeks starting with parshat Shemot) are especially propitious times to atone for sexual transgressions. To help readers, we have translated a powerful penitential prayer composed by the renowned Torah scholar, Rabbi Aharon Rota, of blessed memory, author of the classic works, “Taharat HaKodesh” and “Shomer Emunim.”

This prayer and the learning that precedes it are designed to cleanse a person of sexual transgressions, known as blemishes to the Brit. These transgressions, including the spilling of semen in vain (masturbation), pre-marital sex, sexual relations with non-Jews, relations with a woman in her “niddah” menstrual period, adultery, improper relations with one’s wife, including premature ejaculation, forbidden incestuous relations, and the like, all of these are also known as blemishes to the “Yesod.”

Tikun HaKlali

Preface

[Skip to the ten psalms of the Tikun HaKlali]

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810) was a great-grandson of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Hasidism.

The Tikun HaKlali (תיקון הכללי) is considered by the Breslov Hasidim to be a comprehensive rectification for all sins - in particular the sin of spilling semen in vain through involuntary nocturnal emission, masturbation, premature ejaculation, and other sexual sins. The Tikun HaKlali is a set of ten Tehillim (Psalms) whose recital serves as repentance over these sins. It is comprised of the following ten Psalms, said in this order: 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137, and 150.

The Importance of Tzedakah PDF Print E-mail
Kabbalists' Writings
Written by Tzvi Fishman   
Tuesday, 05 November 2013
One of the most recommended methods of atonement for spilling semen in vain and sexual transgression is the generous giving of tzedakah – charity. Nowadays, when it extremely difficult for people to undertake the numerous fasts which the Arizal prescribed for these sins, tzedakah is the recommended replacement.

Be Fruitful and Multiply! PDF Print E-mail

Be Fruitful and Multiply!


by the revered Kabbalist, HaRav Eliyahu Leon Levi

“And G-d blessed them, and G-d said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill up the land.” (Bereshit, 1:28.)

The very first commandment of the Torah is the mitzvah “to be fruitful and multiply.” This obligation precedes all of the other commandments of the Torah.  For the Divine Presence does not descend to illuminate its earthy branches except through the decent of heavenly souls into this world. For this reason, a man must be fruitful and multiply, in order to bring celestial souls into this world. For when a soul is brought into this world, an exalted heavenly light spreads forth below. Thus, this is a very great mitzvah, immeasurable in its worth, and all other commandments are dwarfed beside it.

For this reason, a man who has not yet married and started a home, it is like he has not yet achieved anything. For this mitzvah is the foundation of the world, and all of the other commandments do not come to life except through this commandment, since everything else is dependent upon it, since through it all of the other commandments may be observed in all of their wholeness.

There is no way for any Jew in the world to ascend the ladder of holiness and to enter its inner chambers until he is married.

By Rabbi Shalom Arush. [Abridged from his book, "B'Gan HaShalom," Chapter Seven]

Love Or Lust

It is important to understand that after the sin in the Garden of Eden, HaKodesh Baruch Hu [The Holy One, Blessed Be He] punished the woman by putting her under her husband's charge, as it is written, "Your desire shall be toward thy husband, and he shall rule over you" (Genesis, 3:16).
