Hayom Yom: Tevet 9

Hayom Yom: Tevet 9

E-mail
Thursday Tevet 9 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: Vayigash, Chamishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 49-54.
Tanya: On the other hand (p. 27)...swallowed up forever (p. 29).

Our custom in aleinu (Siddur Tehilat Hashem p. 84) is to say "for they bow to vanity and nothingness," and markedly not to say "and pray1..." This wording is followed also in Musaf for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. The expectorating is after these words; the reason is that speech stimulates saliva, and we do not wish to benefit from this saliva.

FOOTNOTES
1. A sentence which follows "for they bow..." in some versions of aleinu.
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.
