"TODAY'S DAY": Wednesday, January 4, 2006


Tevet 4, 5766 * January 4, 2006

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

Shabbat, Tevet 4 5703

Torah lessons: Chumash: Mikeitz, Shevi'i with Rashi.
Tehillim: 23-28.
Tanya: Ch. 5. Let us explain (p. 17)...in Peri Etz
Chayim.) (p. 21).

The Rebbes of Chabad would review a parsha (1) or two of the weekly Sedra on Thursday night.

On Friday afternoon they began again from the start and completed the Sedra and Haftora. Shabbat morning before davening they reviewed from Shevi'i to the end again. When there were two Haftorot they said the one of the Sedra (2) on Friday and the other (for Rosh Chodesh, Machar Chodesh, etc.), on Shabbat.

Footnotes: (1) In accordance with the practice of reciting each
Sedra twice and the Onkelos translation into Aramaic
once, and studying the Sedra with Rashi's commentary.
(2) Haftora: The portion from the Prophets read after the
Torah-reading, and relevant to the Sedra of the week
or to the special occasion of that Shabbat.


* There are good dreams in which Torah subjects are made known to the
person dreaming. (11)
These generally occur through concentrated devotion to Torah study
during the day. When someone studies Torah with great diligence or
engages in "service of the heart" - prayer (12) - with intense
effort, then at night - when his soul ascends (13) to draw forth life
for itself from the supernal Life, as explained in Zohar (14) -it is
informed of novellae in Revealed Torah or Inner Torah, (15) each
person according to his diligence in his Avoda during the day.


(11) The notation for the day is relevant to the Sedra describing
Pharaoh's dreams. "Good" dreams are not fortuitous but result from
one's activities and efforts during waking hours.
(12) The Talmud (Taanit 2a) defines "service of the heart" Tefilla -
(13) See Supplementary Footnotes, (p. 124 in the published version).
(14) Viz. Zohar III, p. 25a, et seq.
(15) See "On the Teachings of Chassidus," Kehot.
