Peace From a Passage

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/up_front/article/peace_from_a_passage_20030404

The Kabbalah Centre has decided that there are ways to bring peace to the world that don't involve staging vomit-ins (as peaceniks did in San Francisco) or holding up traffic on Wilshire Boulevard. The night before the war started, the call went out from Rabbi Phillip Berg at the center that everyone should "scan" (meaning that they should let their eyes pass over the Hebrew letters without actually reading it) a certain passage in the Zohar, the ancient kabbalistic text, which is now published online. Berg advocated that people scan a passage from Exodus, from the Parsha Beshalach, that deals with the war the Jews fought against Amalek.
