The World of Dreams

Rab Judah also said in the name of Rab: There are three things for which one should supplicate: a good king, a good year, and a good dream. ‘A good king’, as it is written: A king’s heart is in the hands of the Lord as the water-courses. ‘A good year’, as it is written: The eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year. ‘A good dream’, as it is written; Wherefore cause Thou me to dream and make me to live. Tractate Berakoth, Folio 55a
‘Sovereign of the Universe, I am Thine and my dreams are Thine. I have dreamt a dream and I do not know what it is. Whether I have dreamt about myself or my companions have dreamt about me, or I have dreamt about others, if they are good dreams, confirm them and reinforce them like the dreams of Joseph, and if they require a remedy, heal them, as the waters of Marah were healed by Moses, our teacher, and as Miriam was healed of her leprosy and Hezekiah of his sickness, and the waters of Jericho by Elisha. As thou didst turn the curse of the wicked Balaam into a blessing, so turn all my dreams into something good for me’. Berakoth 55b
A long time ago I dreamed that Rabbi David Rosenberg and I were standing before the Pargod (Veil) and I watched as the “golden threads” of the Veil, which were in the shape of the letters of the Aleph Bet in cursive script moved up and down throughout the weave of the Veil. I know there is meaning to the dream but I am unsure of it’s meaning.
