"TODAY'S DAY": Monday, January 9, 2006


Tevet 9, 5766 * January 9, 2006

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

Thursday, Tevet 9 5703

Torah lessons: Chumash: Vayigash, Chamishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 49-54.
Tanya: On the other hand (p. 27)...swallowed up forever
(p. 29).

Our custom in Aleinu (Siddur Tehilat Hashem p. 84) is to say "for
they bow to vanity and nothingness," and markedly not to say "and
pray (1)...."

This wording is followed also in Musaf for Rosh Hashana and Yom
Kippur. The expectorating is after these words; the reason is that
speech stimulates saliva, and we do not wish to benefit from this

Footnote: (1) A sentence which follows "for they bow..." in some
versions of Aleinu.

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.
