A Time to Create and the Creation of Time

Tishrei 24, 5766 (2)

Date and Location

Tishrei 24, 5766 | October 22, 2005 at the Beit Knesset Merkazi, Kfar Chabad (Marantz Upshernish)

Summary

The first verse of the Bible contains four nouns: "the beginning," "Elokim," "the heavens," and "the earth." The Chassidic masters gave different interpretations of the role that "the beginning," i.e., time played in creation. Coupled into the discussion on the nature of time and its role is a beautiful correspondence of these four primary nouns with the four types of ego-nullification discussed in Chassidut, the highest of which gives a person the ability to see the world from G-d's perspective.
