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

“And the Israelites walked on the dry land within the sea, and the water was a wall for them, to their right and to their left.”—Exodus 14:29

Always be leaving the slavery of Egypt. Never say, “I am this.”

If you catch yourself fitting into a definition, contradict it. If you have found your comfort zone, go beyond it. Don’t let anything define you—neither to the left, nor to the right.

All one-way roads lead back to bondage. Only by walking two opposite roads at once can you be free.

Yes, it demands a miracle. So be it. Always be walking through the splitting of the sea.

Likutei Sichot volume 3, page 969.
