Wednesday Nissan 23, Issru chag, 8th day of the omer 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: Acharei Mot, Revi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 108-112.
Tanya: Now, therefore (p. 223)...the Esoteric Discipline). (p. 225).

The presence of Mashiach is revealed on Acharon Shel Pesach, and this revelation has relevance to all Israel: Pesach is medaleg,1 "skipping over" (rather than orderly progress), and leil shimurim,2 the "protected night." In general the mood of Pesach is one of liberty. Then Pesach ends, and we find ourselves tumbling headlong into the outside world. This is where Mashiach's revealed presence comes into play - imbuing us with a powerful resoluteness that enables us to maintain ourselves in the world.

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.

FOOTNOTES
1. Shir HaShirim 2:8. Midrash Raba on that verse describes the Exodus as medaleg, "skipping over" calculations and rationales for redemption, bringing Israel out of exile regardless of their merit, regardless of the length of the exile. Later in that section the Midrash applies the verse to Mashiach.
2. Sh'mot 12:42, as Rashi notes, the night destined for redemption.
Daily Quote
The campaign of the Greeks was, as we say in the Al Hanissim prayer, aimed to "make them forget Your Torah and violate the decrees of Your will." "Let them study Torah," the Greeks implied. "Let them practice the logical mitzvot and the 'testimonial' observances. But they must not mention that the Torah is G‑d's Torah and the mitzvot are the decrees of His will. Torah and mitzvot must be severed from G‑dliness..."
