Sunday Sh'vat 11 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: B'shalach, first parsha with Rashi.
Tehillim: 60-65.
Tanya: Ch. 20. It is well known (p. 83)...null and void. (p. 85).

The routine of the day begins with saying modeh ani (Siddur Tehilat HaShem p. 6, "I acknowledge before You, living and eternal King etc..."). This is said before the morning laving of the hands, even while the hands are "impure." The reason is that all the impurites in the world do not defile a Jew's "I acknowledge." He might lack one thing or another, but his modeh ani1 remains intact.

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
Old age is a virtue and a blessing...It is true that a 20-year-old can dance the night away while his grandmother tires after a few minutes. But man was not created to dance for hours on end. Man was created to make life on earth purer, brighter and holier than it was before he came on the scene... In this regard, a person's value and productivity only increases with age... The instition of "retirement", which pushes millions of men and women to the sidelines of society each year, is a tragic waste of human life and resources.
  –The Lubavitcher Rebbe
