Wednesday Tishrei 21, Hosha'ana Raba 5704
Torah lessons: Chumash: B'racha, Revi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 104-105.
Tanya: Therefore, my beloved (p. 527) ...Rashi, ad loc. (p. 529).

In the Tikun of Hosha'ana Raba night, the parsha of B'racha1 is also2 said only once. (My father instructed certain individuals to say it with Rashi's commentary on Hosha'ana Raba, but this was not a general instruction.) On erev3 Simchat Torah, B'racha is said twice and its Targum4 once.

Before Hallel remove the (top) two rings from the lulav, leaving the three rings that bind the lulav with the hadassim and aravot. Eiruv Tavshilin (p. 249). On Hosha'ana Raba the piece of bread on which one says hamotzi is dipped in honey, but not on Sh'mini Atzeret or Simchat Torah.

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.
