Torah lessons: Chumash: B'racha, Shlishi with Rashi.

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.
