We asked Rebbetzin Taback a few questions about the school.
What is the Nexus about and why specifically women?
Women are represented by the moon, and the moon’s light is rising. There’s something shifting in the world and women with their unique feminine gifts have a crucial role to play.
What is your background?
For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated with the deep regard the Torah holds for the feminine. Although that doesn’t mean I didn’t have questions.
As a daughter of South African Ba’alei Teshuva and Bas-Bayis of the Teshuva Revolutionary R’ Akiva Tatz, I was blessed to access the teachings of R’ Moshe Shapiro ztz”l through his talmidim, including R’ Tatz, R’ Gideon Nitsun from St. Louis, R’ Shimon Wolpe of Johannesburg, R’ Aaron Lopiansky of Greater Washington, and Israeli author R’ Shlanger of Sefer Ohel Rachel fame. My journey took me through BJJ and Neve, through the outstanding works “the Moon’s Lost Light” by Devorah Heshelis, “Kabbalistic Writings on the nature of Masculine and Feminine” by Sarah Yehudit Schneider and most recently the newly released “Who is this Rising” by R’ Nir Menussi (available in Hebrew only). My training in music, art, psychology and coaching all came together when I founded the Nexus School of Torah for Women, with the intention of exploring “where light meets vessel and where women meet their inner selves”.
What is unique about the school?
The school is designed for transformation on the deepest level as together we rise into our greatness as Jewish women. Fashioning our best selves is the highest art form, Torah itself is called a song, and healing ourselves is the surest way to heal the world. The importance of a healed feminine archetype was no secret to our sages hundreds of years ago when they predicted “in the merit of righteous women we were redeemed from Egypt (and on Chanuka and Purim!) and in the merit of righteous women we will be redeemed with the coming of Moshiach”.
What is the connection between women and the moon?
The moon is the icon of the feminine archetype and though she was diminished on the fourth day of creation when she complained that “two kings (lit. luminaires) can’t share a single crown”, Isaiah 30:26 reveals that in the future, the reflected light of the moon will be as brilliant the light of the sun and that sun and moon will indeed share a crown. R’ Dessler explains with his sensitive pen in Michtav M’Eliyahu that feminine gifts (such as emotional brilliance and others) need to be revealed and harnessed in order to achieve the healed world that we crave. It is therefore imperative that as women we know what our gifts are and know how to wield their power in the context of Torah.
What is the format of learning at the online school?
It is not enough to see the sources in text form. It is necessary to coax these teachings out of the recesses of the intellect until they simmer in the chicken soup and fill our hearts, (and our children’s!) with joy and transform our marriages into their pre-Moshiach happy state. There is no other option but to channel our emerging capacities along these lines. We need community, discussion, and what I call a “circle” learning model, where we explore things together to fully integrate them.
You use the women of Tanach as templates for modern women. How does this work?
The women in Torah themselves, when studied according to the Torah’s multi-textured fabric of inter-woven layers, almost speak to us directly and lovingly guide us. There is no better place to learn about the secrets of feminine power in Torah than from the prototypes of femininity. This is the focus of our sessions, to extract practical tools from the most lofty sources. These “Nexus” sessions (what I call light + vessel, ie. Torah learning plus guided application) will expand your paradigms, kindle your light and empower you to rise.
It is now Chanuka, when the glow of the future backlights through our Menoras into the night.
