"TODAY'S DAY": Tuesday, October 25, 2005


Due to holiday observance, the Yom Tov edition of ''Today's Day'' is sent on Monday. Chag Sameach!

Tishrei 22, 5766 * October 25, 2005

"T O D A Y ' S D A Y"

Thursday, Tishrei 22, Sh'mini Atzeret 5704

Torah lessons: Chumash: B'racha, Chamishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 106-107.
Tanya: On the holy Sabbath (p. 529) (His) will.
(p. 529).

One makes Kiddush and eats and drinks in the Sukah, both by night and during the (following) day.

Hakafot on Sh'mini Atzeret night.

Haftora: Vay'hi K'chalot until Ul'Yisrael Amo.

We do not say the (specially designated prayer) Yehi Ratzon upon leaving the Sukah.

Sh'mini Atzeret and Rosh Hashana are parallel in many of the Kavanot
(1) and higher Yichudim. (2)

On Rosh Hashana, though, these are in a mode of elevation and on Sh'mini Atzeret in a mode of elicitation from On High downward.

On Rosh Hashana man's Avoda is with supplication, submission and intense bitterness; on Sh'mini Atzeret it is with joy.

Footnotes: 1. Mystic devotions.
2. "Unification" of different supernal elements
attained by the individual during (and by)
his mystical devotions.
