Darkness and Spiritual Growth

Updated: Dec 9, 2022

By Rabbi Michael Skobac

"Your eyes are composed of white and black components, and you only see through the black." (Midrash Bamidbar Rabbah 15:7)

So often, it is only through the dark, painful moments in life that we really gain insight, clarity, and spiritual growth.

By Rabbi Michael Skobac
