What is the ultimate objective of our destiny?
Once the Messianic Era begins — world peace, universal enlightenment, an end to suffering and eternal life — one would assume that having accomplished his mission the Moshiach's central role would no longer be required. Yet this is not the case, to the contrary! In clarifying this mystery, this class will present an overview of G-d's objective in creation as revealed by the Sages over the millennia and how our understanding of His purpose undergoes an evolving ever-deepening appreciation, layer beneath layer, until the final curtain on G-d's very Essence is drawn. (This class is in honor of the Rebbe's 20th Yahrtzeit anniversary)

Parsha Chukat
This week's portion states (Numbers 19:15) "Any open vessel which has no seal fastened around it becomes unclean." Based on this verse, Maimonides discusses various scenarios in which the contents of a vessel with a tight-fitting lid (Heb. "tzamid patil") are protected from ritual impurity. What are these particular scenarios and how does each one correspond symbolically to another aspect of our relationship with G-d? (Based on Likutei Sichos vol. 38, pp. 72.)

What is the connection between 1) the missing vav, 2) the Edomites who are descended from Esau, and 3) the story of Moses striking the rock?
