Reading Torah ~ Enveloped in Splendor, Being in Gratitude 

Malchut sh b' Hod
Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 35

First time I read Torah
Miriam HaNeviah in Exodus Parshat B'Shalach 15:20
(and every time)

At times 
in shul, 
whether I'm in a chapel or garden-- 
a sacred place of prayer, 
Holiness infuses me with a palpable density of Hod. 
The cantor carries me on wings of song; 
rabbi teaches from the heart, 
touching me; 
 Congregation, too, reverberates.
Torah is alive;
flowing through me
revealed energy of Divine Presence.

 I have received
and I am fully with Light
enveloped in Splendor, Awe and Gratitude. 
Delight ~
Malchut sh b'Hod.
Baruch Hashem

guided by Rabbi Judith HaLevy
co-founder Sarah's Tent
Home of co-founder Savina Teubal, z"l.
Miriam HaNeviah in Exodus Parshat B'Shalach 15:20

"Miriam the Prophetess, sister of Aaron, took her drum in her hand,
and all the women went forth after her with drums and with dances."

Joy wears the hand-ribboned tallit she designed 
based on Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's, z"l, Sephirot colors
and friend Ruth Zitch, z"l, wove in the ribbons
after removing weft threads. Joy fringed and knotted Tzitzit.

My birth parshah is another favorite: Numbers, BaMidbar, BaHa'alotecha 12:13.
"Moshe cried out to Hashem, 'Please, Hashem, heal her now'."
