Halachic Times (Zmanim)

Jewish History

In 1826, Rabbi DovBer of Lubavitch (see calendar entry for yesterday, Kislev 9) was arrested on charges that his teachings threatened the imperial authority of the Czar, but was subsequently exonerated. The date of his release, Kislev 10, is celebrated amongst Chabad Chassidim as a "festival of liberation." Tachnun (confession of sins) is omitted from the day's prayers, farbrengens are held, and Rabbi DovBer's teachings are studied.

Laws and Customs
In Chabad practice, Tachanun (confession of sins) and similar prayers are omitted today.
Daily Thought

Why must we have jobs? Why can’t our bread fall from heaven?

It does. Everything you earn is manna from heaven. But can you eat manna from heaven?

So that manna has to get from its heavenly state down to an earthly form you can handle, step by difficult step.

And for you to bring it to that final, most difficult step, to become a part of this physical world—for that, you need a normal job in this physical world.

What’s important to know is that the job doesn’t create anything. It just provides packaging and delivery.

To create the income, you need to work with heaven. Up there, it’s your contribution towards bringing heaven down to earth that counts.

Derech Mitzvosecha, Tiglachat Metzora.
