Kislev 15, 5766 * December 16, 2005

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

Sunday, Kislev 15 5704

Torah lessons: Chumash: Vayeishev, First parsha with Rashi.
Tehillim: 77-78.
Tanya: However, his extolling (p. 623) that
reference. (p. 625).

(An emendation to Torah Or, Parshat Vayeishev appears here, relevant only in Hebrew. Translator.)

The Alter Rebbe told his son the Mitteler Rebbe: Grandfather (the Baal Shem Tov) (1) said that one must have Mesirat Nefesh (total self- sacrifice and dedication) Ahavat Yisrael (love of one's fellow), even towards a Jew whom one has never seen.

Footnote: (1) (1) The Alter Rebbe called the Baal Shem Tov
"grandfather," since the Baal Shem Tov was the Rebbe of
the Maggid, who in turn was the Alter Rebbe's teacher,
i.e. spiritual father.
