Video & Audio Classes
Show content in:
Sunday 9 Adar I 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: Tetzaveh, first parsha with Rashi.
Tehillim: 49-54.
Tanya: Ch. 29. There is yet (p. 123)...coarseness and crassness. (p. 125).

When someone walks the street and thinks words of Mishna or Tanya, or sits in his store with a Chumash or Tehillim - that is more valued today than it was when the streets were bright with the light of Torah. We must not go about in the street with a vacant heart.1 We must have some Torah memorized, to take with us into the street.

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.

In the b'racha Borei nefashot (p. 95), say al kol ma shebarata, "kol" with a cholam, not a kamatz.

The intense longing to be bound closely1 (to a Rebbe) can be satisfied only by learning maamarim of Chassidus which the Rebbe delivers as oral discourses and writes down; simply seeing him2 is not enough.

On this day, in 5700 (1940), the Previous Rebbe o.b.m. arrived in the U.S.A. "The day marks the essential beginning of the 'dissemination of the wellsprings (of chassidus) to the outside' in this lower hemisphere"; a quotation - according to the memory of a listener - from the Rebbe of righteous memory, from a sicha of Shabbat Parshat Tetzaveh, 5745 (1985), in which the great significance and import of the day is explained at length.

בברכת בורא נפשות אומרים על כל מה שבראת - הכ"ף בחולם ולא בקמץ.

גודל התשוקה להתקשרות, יכול להשביע רק כאשר ילמוד מאמרי החסידות שאומר הרב וכותב, כי בראית פנים בלבד לא סגי.
