Friday Tishrei 16, 2nd Day of Sukot 5704
In the evening kiddush: Shehecheyanu precedes leisheiv ba'suka. At Mincha do not say Hodu (p. 124); do say Patach Eliyahu (p. 125).
Torah lessons: Chumash: B'racha, Shishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 79-82.
Tanya: (XXIIb) My beloved (p. 521) ...heart and soul. (p. 523).

The Tzemach Tzedek related: In 5569 (1808) we heard from my grandfather (the Alter Rebbe) for the sixth time the maamar Ush'avtem mayim1 (the first of that title in Likutei Torah) and the experience was reminiscent of the Talmudic statement (Yerushalmi Suka 5:1) "From there they drew (the holy spirit)."2 Yona3 received, at the celebration of the water-drawing, the gift of prophetic revelation; we received revelation without end. The end will be when Mashiach comes, for the end is rooted in the beginning.4

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.

Daily Quote
Our masters taught: There are three partners in man -- G-d, his father, and his mother. His father inseminates the white substance, out of which are formed the child's bones, sinews, and nails, the brain in his head, and the white of his eye. His mother inseminates the red substance, out of which are formed the child's skin, flesh, and hair, and the black of his eye. G-d implants in him spirit, soul, beauty of countenance, eyesight, the capacity to hear, the capacity to speak, and the capacity to walk, as well as knowledge, understanding, and intelligence. When man's time to depart from the world approaches, G-d takes away His part and leaves to the father and mother the parts contributed by them.
  –Talmud, Niddah 31a
