Distinction between the Torah of Yaakov and that of Yisrael
Samach Vav: Titen Emes LeYaakov, Part 15

Avodah of Shem Havaya (the role of Niggun)
Samach Vav: Titen Emes LeYaakov, Part 13

The Avodah of Shem Havayah
Samach Vav: Titen Emes LeYaakov, Part 12
The Avodah of Yaakov Avdi is a struggle with a two-fold concealment: 1) The obscurity of Seder Hishtalshelus, and 2) our own personal darkness, the Nefesh Habamis (animal soul). In contrast, the state of Yisrael is pure illumination. It comprises undilute...

Although our perception of Divinity is limited to Shem אלקים, we, in fact, draw down and unite with Shem יהוה through our learning of Torah and performance of Mitzvos, albeit in a way of which we are unaware.
Contemplation of the Ha’orah of Malchus leads to a love of Etzem
Samach Vav: Titen Emes LeYaakov, Part 9

The Ha’orah of Malchus in Tefillah
Samach Vav: Titen Emes LeYaakov, Part 8
The order of Tefillas Shachris begins with Pesukei D’zimra in which the Ha’orah of Malchus is the dominant theme.
Malchuschah: Endless Elevations in Worlds (up to, and including, the arrival of Moshiach)
Samach Vav: Titen Emes LeYaakov, Part 7
Seder Hishtalshelus comprises an endless sequential series of worlds providing for an endless series of Aliyos, until the end of time as we know it (the seventh millennium called “Shamos”, devastation in the language of Tehillim). In the words of Chazal: ...
