Torah lessons: Chumash: B'racha, Shlishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 97-103.
Tanya: Therefore, evil in (p. 527) ...the sacred Zohar. (p. 527).

During the movements of the lulav (p. 240) one should touch the chest with the lulav at the spot one strikes his heart for ashamnu.

My father once said at a farbrengen that this (practice)1 is similar to the idea that only through the earnestness before davening, when one is embittered over his sins, can there afterwards be an emotional excitement in davening.

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.

Of touching the chest with the lulav at the spot where he strikes ashamnu; ashamnu being the daily confession-prayer for one's sins. (p. 61).
Daily Quote
Remember what Amalek did to you on the road, on your way out of Egypt. That he encountered you on the way and cut off those lagging to your rear, when you were tired and exhausted; he did not fear G-d. And it shall come to pass, when the L-rd your G-d has given you rest from all your enemies round about, in the land which the L-rd your G-d is giving you for an inheritance to possess it, that you shall obliterate the memory of Amalek from under the heavens. Do not forget.
  –Zachor reading, Deuteronomy 25:17-19
