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

Monday, Kislev 2* 5704

Torah lessons: Chumash: Vayeitsei, Sheini with Rashi.
Tehillim: 10-17.
Tanya: Now, in one (p. 603)...Yetzirah and Asiyah.
(p. 603).

My grandfather once explained in a Maamar the statement, R. Elazar first gave a coin to a pauper and then davened : "Davening must be with life. By giving, before Davening, charity to a pauper - thereby giving him life - one's Davening is suffused with a great increase of `aliveness'."

So saying he motioned with his hand in an upwards gesture to indicate that the increase is beyond imagination. Indeed my father would often seek out a pauper before Davening to give him food.

* This day is the crowning culmination of the Didan Natzach victory,
marking the actual return, in 5748 (1987) of the S'farim and
k'tavim of the Rebbe'im to their rightful place in the library of
Agudas Chasidei Chabad. This was the "...pidyon sh'vuyim (`release
of the captives') of the S'farim, which were returned to their
places in actual fact, on Monday of the Torah-portion `I shall
return in peace to my father's house,' on the second of
Kislev." Sicha, Tevet 5, 5748. (The event coincided - in time and
location - with the First International Convention of the Shluchim,
emissaries of the Rebbe.
