The Redemption Process
Is Mashiach Here?
We are Sorry for this inaudible lecture - (Put Volume High) On July 23rd 2015 the CHAZAQ organization hosted R' Shimon Kessin. The event took place at Congregation Beit Eliyahu in Queens, NY. The topic of the lecture was “Is Mashiach Here?”
The Iranian Nuclear Threat And Its Connection To The Messianic Process
How do we understand what's going on in the Middle East, the Arab Spring, the Iranian Nuclear threat and its promise to annihilate the Jewish State, the United Nations complacency, The American situation. The narcissism and megalomania of our current society. Where is all this leading to.

The Iranian Nuclear Threat As For-told By The Sages
How did the Rabbis foresee the Iranian Nuclear threat and its rise to power as the Third Temple is about to be rebuilt. A deep connection between ancient Persia and modern-day Iran. The players have changed, however the message is the same.

What Does The Moment Of The Redemption Look Like?
A most fascinating lecture on what processes will be taking place when the Messianic redemption begins. It deals with different consciousnesses, the process of zichuch (spiritual purification) and the revival of the dead (techiyas hameisim).

Selfology: The Study of Self Consciousness, Its Permutations and Variations
This is a very fascinating lecture delving into some very deep philosophical concepts of Self Awareness, its different variations and how they connect to the macro attributes of Justice and Mercy. The concept of Nahama Dekisufa is discussed on a very deep level and how it aggravates Self Awareness itself. The lecturer then demonstrates two different lenses of how one can observe reality: Organismic Reality vs. Separatistic Individualistic Reality. This lecture also identifies the key features of the soul and the body, spirituality and physicality, the consciousness of the world to come (Olam Habbah) vs present-day consciousness.

The 50th Gate of Wisdom: What Does It Look Like?
The Rambam writes that from all his major works that he wrote he considers his Moreh Nevuchim as his magnum opus. There he attempts to understand and explain the way of G-d based on Aristotelian philosophy. The Vilna Gaon writes very sharply against the Rambam for adapting alien Greek philosophy instead of the wisdom of our Sages and the Mystical teachings of the Kabballah and Hashkafa. How come the Rambam and the Ramchal and many others were so intrigued by the wisdom of science and the liberal arts such as literature, languages, art history, music history, philosophy, history, mathematics, psychology etc. Furthermore, what does the Midrash (Eichah 2:13) mean when it
- says: אם יאמר לך אדם יש חכמה בגוים – תאמן; יש תורה בגוים - אל תאמן and
- how does all this connect to the ultimate Redemption itself.
