The following story comes from Kabbalah Centre Student, Nader Ghiam.
For the longest time, I had tried to convince my brother to allow me to give him The Zohar, so that he would be protected. He laughed at me and consistently refused. I bought it for everyone else in my family, but he would not let me offer him this gift.
One Shabbat, while I was at the Kabbalah Centre, I remembered a dream I had recently. It was about my brother, and in it he was naked. I was perplexed at the meaning of this, and as a student of Kabbalah, I know that dreams contain messages about the future.
At that moment, I saw Karen Berg.
I asked Karen what it meant. Karen said my brother was in danger and needed to have The Zohar immediately.
The following week, after much conversation, I finally convinced my brother to take The Zohar. Three days later, he was on a flight from LA to Paris, with a stopover in New York. His plane made it safely to New York, but somehow he missed the connecting flight to Paris.
As TWA Flight 800 left without him, he fumed about his misfortune and began making arrangements to get out on the next flight. Several hours later TWA Flight 800 crashed into the sea. There were no survivors.
I know it was the Zohar that saved my brother’s life that day.
Incidentally, all of his brother’s luggage was on the flight leaving him without his clothes.
