In the Image of G-D, Part 2: Chassidic insights on the 10th and 11th of Shevat

A powerful excerpt of the Rebbe’s ‘Yud Shevat’ maamar (a mystical discourse) from the year 1957 (titled Basi LeGani 5717) expounding on the idea of restoring the letter ‘hei’ in G-d’s name and illuminating the depth behind speech and communication. The class begins with truly profound insights into the wondrous significance of the 11th day of Shevat, which is specifically associated with our generation.

Dear Rabbi New:

How did the Friedicke Rebbe know to write the Yud in numerous letters, to prepare the maaamor for printing; is his knowledge on a different plane and I guess my 'real' question is do we know if was he conscious of this knowledge? I thought as humans we were not allowed to know this date for a variety of reasons.
Is the explanation of the number 10/generations, utterances, sephirot, Creation to it's fullest and 11 as the Infinite/Beyond how you/rabbonim explain this knowledge?
Oh, as I write with my finite mind I suddenly realize I'm asking how a tzaddik can 'know'---even as such, the Rebbeim were constrained in human bodies and the realization of finite time to complete their missions...I cannot imagine the pain or pressure... Reply

This class analyzes an aspect of the weekly Torah portion or upcoming holiday. While providing a basic understanding of the subject matter, the lesson delves into its deeper and more complex dimensions with emphasis on the spiritual relevance to our daily lives. Inspiration for both the novice and advanced student.
