Hayom Yom

Hayom Yom

Show content in:
Wednesday Nissan 16, 2nd day of chag ha'matzot (Pesach); first of omer 5703
On the second night of Pesach the order of prayers in the Sh'ma On Retiring (p. 119) is the same as for every festival.1
Torah lessons: Chumash: Acharei Mot, Revi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 79-82.
Tanya: Yet in fact (p. 211)...and the like. (p. 215).

Even one who is, G-d forbid, orphaned from his father, declares before beginning the ma nishtana, "tateh ich vell ba dir freggen feer kashess" ("Father, I am going to ask you four questions"). In a similar vein, even one whose mother and father are, G-d forbid, no longer alive, nonetheless says in birkat hamazon (grace after meals) "May the Merciful One bless my father my teacher, etc., my mother my teacher, etc." (p. 93).

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.

1. However, on the first evening of Pesach, called leil shimurim, the "protected evening," we say only the first paragraph of sh'ma (p.119) and the closing b'racha, hamapil (p. 123).

Delve and delve into [the Torah], for all is in it; see with it; grow old and worn in it; do not budge from it, for there is nothing better
