506.2Question: Is it necessary for everyone to dine together in the family?

Answer: No, it is not necessary. Usually, the wife and children eat separately and the husband eats separately. But once a week on Shabbat, they all dine together.

We are naturally designed in such a way that the wife is the home, and the husband works and earns. This comes from spiritual roots. We did not invent this, and it is not for us to change it. We just have to continue on this path.

Question: Why does this seem primitive to many people today?

Answer: I do not think it is primitive. I believe it preserves the family when the mother cooks for everyone, and if the daughters are already grown up, they help her, and everyone sits at the same table and dines together. This strengthens the family.

Question: But still, if I now tell myself that your place is in the kitchen, that is your job: both spiritually and physically, it is like… There are days when I spend most of my time at home doing household chores, but at some point, I feel that it dulls me. Are these some new qualities in women?

Answer: Perhaps. But the most important thing is simply to understand how we can be closer to each other. And the meal is certainly a very important, shared property. After all, while preparing it, we think about each other: what he likes, what I like, and how we can enjoy the prepared food together. It is a whole process.

Comment: When I cook for the family, I really love listening to your lessons. If I do not turn on a lesson, I feel like something is missing. Then I turn it on, and it feels completely different.

Answer: Correct, spiritual nourishment goes along with regular food.

294.2In a family of Kabbalists, the wife fills her husband not only with food calories but also with her desires, and he must fill her with his spiritual work.

Desire is transmitted through food. Rabash was amazingly developed: he could tell by the food what was happening in the family.

Question: Can a woman tie a man to her by what she cooks for him?

Answer: Of course. It is not in vain that it is said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

Question: And what is the way to a woman’s heart?

Answer: Only through one’s attitude. Nothing else. Show her love and affection. Spouses should not just exist in the same area but should be connected spiritually and physically.

503.02Rabash writes in the article “Partnership” that a man must work. Just as he used to go hunting animals, today he goes to earn money and brings his earnings home.

Question: Is it in the nature of men to work hard or do they like to earn and bring money to the family?

Answer: It depends on the wife: how she sets him up, how she sees him off, and how she greets him once he is back. This is very important and can even affect earnings.

282.01Comment: We often come across the fact that we understand you, we want to pass it on to others, but we cannot.

My Response: The process of transmitting spiritual information can be explained in the language of Kabbalah.

The highest attainment takes place inside the vessel (Kli), which is called Ohr Hozer (reflected light). I get a certain upper feeling in the form of Ohr Hozer, and then I pass it on to you.

Basically, I should only give you the coordinates so that you, by yourself, can receive the same higher attainment. I could just tell you what I am thinking right now, meaning give you a direction where to go.
Instead, I myself am passing on to you what I felt and received along with my package of Ohr Hozer. That is, what let’s say cost me 15 years of work, I am passing on to you so that you can somehow perceive it.

This is a microdose of the feeling that I was experiencing at the time when I was explaining it to you, but you still got something and understood precisely because I gave you a complete set, a complete package. And you cannot pass it on because you get direct light in the reflected light and in the desire—all three are packed together. I am passing it to you with the desire, with the light, and with packaging.

All that is needed on your part is some kind of common desire, as it happens during the lectures. This is how I give people some information. In general, not even information, but a feeling, because a person cannot understand the information. He catches certain logic between this and that, some fragments. But in general, we understand that a person perceives with his feelings, and then if he wants to continue, then with logic.

Only when this information ignites him, only then will he turn on the logic, come to us for a series of integral education talks, and start working on his first feeling.
