"TODAY'S DAY": Thursday, January 12, 2006


Tevet 12, 5766 * January 12, 2006

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

Sunday, Tevet 12 5703

Torah lessons: Chumash: Vay'chi, First Parsha with Rashi.
Tehillim: 66-68.
Tanya: Ch. 9. The abode (p. 35) the brains.
(p. 35).

In 5648 (1887) my father was elected Gabai (an official) of the Chevra
Kadisha. (1)

As was customary he was led on Simchat Torah in procession to the
Shul accompanied by a throng.

At that time he said the Maamar beginning "Ein H.B.H. Ba Bitrunya."

The conclusion was: Even the great minds who are here must lay aside
their intellects and not be ruled by their reason and knowledge, for
they are susceptible to being misguided by their intellect to the
point that their end may be a bitter one.

The essential thing in these times of the "footsteps of Mashiach" is
not to follow intellect and reason, but to fulfill Torah and mitzvot
wholeheartedly, with simple faith in the G-d of Israel.

Footnote: (1) The "Sacred Society" was charged with the duty of
preparing the dead for burial, considered a mitzva of
the highest order.

Vayechi - Jacob's Unrequited Desire
By Moshe New

“Jacob called for his sons and said, ‘Gather and I will tell you what will happen to you at the end of days”. Rashi explains: He attempted to reveal when Moshiach would come, but the Shechinah withdrew from him. So he began to say other things.
