Video & Audio Classes
Show content in:
Friday Sivan 1, 45th day of the omer, Rosh Chodesh 5703
Until Sivan 12, inclusively, do not say tachanun.
Torah lessons: Chumash: Bamidbar, Shishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 1-9.
Tanya: But what is (p. 273)...commandments of the Torah. (p. 273).

"Throw a stick into the air; it will fall back on ikrei, its root-side."1 Our fathers, the holy Rebbes, bequeathed a boundless heritage to the first chassidim, that their sons' children and their daughters' children throughout the generations, in whatever country and environment they may be, will have that "root" - which is the attraction of their "inwardness of heart" to the rock from which they were hewn. At times this element is covered and concealed in a number of garbs. This, then, is the avoda of whoever desires life - to remove these coverings, to establish for himself periods for the study of Chassidus, and to conduct himself in the manner of the Chassidic community.

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.
