WHAT BLEW MY MIND
Why the heck would Moroccan Jews mourn a Muslim King? I will tell you why. They loved him. And they loved his father. Mind blowing when you consider the hatred out in the world today? Sephardic Kabbalistic Jews enjoyed warm relations with Muslims and Christians throughout history. How come no one talks about this?
I started in Kabbalah over twenty-two years ago. You know what blew my mind after about a year of learning at the Kabbalah Centre?
There was something shocking about the Holocaust the no one talked about.What blew my mind was that most people didn’t even know there was something shocking to talk about.
What blew my mind was that 99.9% of the Jews slaughtered in World War II were Ashkenazi Jews.
What blew me away was that Kabbalist Rav Yehuda Ashlag, founder of the Kabbalah Centre in 1922, wrote a letter. Yes, he wrote a letter warning the Rabbis of Eastern Europe to spread the Zohar. To study it. To read it. To disseminate it. As fast as possible. To all the Ashkenazi people.
What blew my mind were Rav Ashlag’s words of warning when he told the Rabbis why:
“There is a black cloud hovering over European Jewry, unlike anything mankind has ever seen before.”
What blew my mind was that this letter was written in the early 1930s.
What blew my mind was that the Rabbis ignored his pleas.
What blew my mind was that German Jewish scholars, Rabbis, Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Secular all trashed and bashed the Zohar and Kabbalah. Just like they do today.
What blew my mind was that there was a place on earth where the Zohar was studied. And revered. And loved. And shared. And scanned. And meditated upon. Even though most people did not understand a word of it. Not a word!
They chanted it. And visually scanned it.
Like in the city of Casablanca. Andre Chouraqui was the former mayor of Jerusalem. He used to live in Casablanca. He wrote a book and said people chanted the Zohar 24 hours a day in Casablanca. Without understanding a word.
What blew my mind was that they meditated on the Zohar—in relay teams!
And this didn’t just happen in one location. Or two. Or three. There were at least five locations in the city of Casablanca where people chanted and scanned the Zohar 24 hours a day. No one laughed at them. No one protested. All the Rabbis of Morocco loved the Zohar.
Now here’s what really blew my mind: The Moroccan Sephardic people escaped the horrors of World War II.
Even more mind-blowing was that the famous Nazi General, Field Marshall Rommel invaded North Africa. He demanded that the King of Morocco deport 250,000 Sephardics.
What blew me away was that Morocco was no match for the awesome Nazi war machine that was the German army.
Nonetheless, the King simply said no.
To quote King Mohammad V, exactly:
“There are no Jews in Morocco, only Moroccans.”
Ready for this?
Okay, here it is.
Rommel turned around left. Without a fight. Without protest. Picked up his war machine and said “okay, see ya later.”
Even though the destruction of Jews was the single highest priority of the Nazi High Command.
No matter what anyone says. No one has an explanation as to why the Moroccan Sephardic Israelites were sparred.
Except for the people of Morocco.
I interviewed some of them. Below is their story. After hearing it, get a Zohar.
Get another for a friend. Because the Zohar saves lives. It protects people. Transforms darkness into Light. Don’t listen to those who scoff at the Zohar. Times are changing. Look around. Storm clouds are gathering.
The Zohar itself says that in times of judgment, the Zohar will serve as Noah’s Ark.
Watch this then climb aboard.
