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

Torah lessons: Chumash: Vayigash, Shevi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 60-65.
Tanya: Ch. 8. There is an additional (p. 31)...engaged

Man's life is dependent on the air around him. Without air he cannot
live and the quality of life is dependent on the quality of air.

In an atmosphere of Torah and mitzvot there is healthy life.

In a G-dless environment life is diseased, and one is constantly
threatened with the possibility of being stricken with contagious

The first general step in healing is to purify the atmosphere.

Purification of the air is the task of every person familiar with
Torah and Torah-literature, and is effected through the letters (1)
of Torah.

When reciting words of Torah while in the store or walking in the
street or riding the subway, one cleans the air. Everyone
knowledgeable in Torah must have some Torah memorized - Chumash,
Tehillim, Mishna, Tanya, etc., so that at all times and in all places
he will be able to think and utter the holy letters of Torah. (2)

Footnotes: (1) "Letters" is the Chabad term used for words, letters
being the fundaments of words, and each letter in
Torah has significance.
(2) See Sivan, 9.

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.
