A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
AVOS 1 - The 2nd and 3rd articles present insights for the first chapter of Pirkei Avot (the Mishnaic tractate of 'Ethical Principles') of which we study one chapter each Shabbat until Shavuot
(and many repeat the cycle until Rosh Hashanah).

Since the 2nd night of Pesach we have been "Counting the Omer" - see article #5

We held over the Annual Tree blessing from last week on the home page -- a nice family activity if you haven't recited it yet.

See the dedication in reference to the lead article.

(Those of you in ISRAEL should click to Kedoshim for articles on the Weekly Reading there.)
Dedication
In honor of the yahrzeit on Sunday, 30 Nissan, of Rabbi Chaim Vital
(see lead article) main disciple of the "Holy Ari"
and the only one permitted to record his teachings.
