Wednesday Sh'vat 14 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: B'shalach, Revi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 72-76.
Tanya: Ch. 21. However, (p. 87)...their prophetic vision. (p. 87).

Tachanun (p. 103) is not said at Mincha.

Our Holy forebears, the Rebbe'im through the generations, appealed to G‑d and evoked Divine compassion toward their Chassidim, those bound to them. This was not all; they also had an avoda of bringing their Chassidim to mind, inwardly, pondering their affection and attachment to the Rebbe, reciprocating that affection and attachment. Bringing someone to mind has the effect of arousing that person's innermost powers. We see that when one looks deeply and intently at another he will turn around and return the glance, because the penetrating gaze awakens the core of the soul. Thought has the same effect.
