Daily Study: Hayom Yom

Video & Audio Classes
Show content in:
Friday Iyar 16, 31st day of the omer 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: B'har, Shishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 79-82.
Tanya: But His blessed (p. 255)..as is explained elsewhere. (p. 255).

After my father pared his nails, he would place a small piece of wood among them before burning them.

In terms of scholarship and aptitude the Chassid Reb Elyeh Abeler was a simple man. Once, when he came into yechidus, my grandfather said to him: "Elyeh, I envy you. You travel to various fairs, you meet many people. Sometimes, in the middle of a business transaction, you get into a warm discussion about a Jewish saying, a saying from the Ein Yakov etc., and you arouse the other fellow's interest in studying nigleh (Talmud, halacha etc.) and Chassidus. This causes joy On High, and the A-lmighty rewards such "trade" with the blessings of children, health and sustenance; the larger the fair the more work there is and the greater is the livelihood earned."

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.
