Hello Rabbi, you have been exceptionally inspiring, i have listened to over 30 of your online classes.
my question is with regards to my birthday, and how that has a hint to my service on this world. 
I was born on the 11th of April 1996 in johannesburg, at 13:05, this is equivalent to the 22nd of nissan, 8th day pesach. 
with regards to the torah reading for that day, and the fact that it is last day pesach, what can we utilize from this information about my service to G-d in this lifetime?

Indeed the day we are born can tell us a lot about our personality and the path we need to walk on and what we need to’fix’ in our life and a lot more details. This information can be found in the holy book of Zohar, in the series of books called ‘The Bnei Issachar’, in the book of Formation (Sefer Yetzira) and a few more books of Kabbalah. To really learn about these details, it requires many hours of reading and research in the right books, because it’s not only the day one was born, but also the hour of the day, the name of the person, what month the person was conceived and much more information in order to get to the most accurate details. Many people do not know how to find this info and they end up making the wrong analogy.

We have just posted a video about the month of Nissan which you will find interesting information regarding your birth month and some great things to focus on as this is the month you were born. you can find the video by clicking here or copy this url

Unfortuantly one can not explore this information in a short message and better to learn much more about it before coming to conclusions. I believe that when one is innocent with G-d and has simple trust and belief in G-d, then G-d reveals to him/her what ever they need to do in clear messages throughout their life. It’s all about humbling yourself and G-d finds the ways to send you his messages

Wishing you all the best and a happy and Kosher Pesach
Happy birthday
