"TODAY'S DAY": Tuesday, January 10, 2006


Tevet 10, 5766 * January 10, 2006

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

Friday, Tevet 10 5703

Fast day. Selichot (p. 356). Avinu Malkeinu (p. 277).

Torah lessons: Chumash: Vayigash, Shishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 55-59.
Tanya: Yet the vitality (p. 29)...of flesh and blood (p. 31).

From the Tzemach Tzedek's answer at Yechidus: It is written, "Let
the wicked leave his path and the man of sin his thoughts etc." (1)

Aven (sin) is the same as On, (2) meaning power and strength.

Just as it is imperative that the "wicked leave his path," for
without Teshuva it is impossible to approach the Sacred, (3) so
must the "man of strength," one with unshakeable confidence in his
reasoning, "leave his thoughts."

He is not to insist, "I say so. This is what I think;" every "I",
ego, is a source of evil, a cause of divisiveness.

Footnotes: (1) Yeshayahu 55:7.
(2) In Hebrew spelling, but using a different vowel.
(3) See Tanya Ch. 17.

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.
