One’s conduct on Shabbos Bereshis affects the entire year Selling of Aliyos includes the resolve to increase Torah study Summer ‫ אתערותא דלעילא‬Winter ‫אתערותא דלתתא‬ Bereshis makes up that missed during Tishrei Adam sinned, thus, at Har Sinai spoke to the women first The complaint of the world and the Torah’s response As the Big Fish had a mate; so does every Tzadik Every moment counts A Jew reveals the spiritual in the physical environment Light – the purpose of Creation – created, and then hidden One deed can transform from one side to the other side Torah begins with a ‫ ב‬and not with an ‫א‬ A Jew is not limited by one’s mazel To a person is given the ability to connect creation with G-d How does one select the best? Careful in thought as well as in speech Conquering the Land, a Jew’s spiritual service Adam the pinnacle of creation, yet not allowed to eat meat The light that is hidden for the future The blessing of the fifth day, unlimited Chesed Shabbos brought a higher level requiring tikkun Creation with 10, a progression to completion; Teshuvah overcomes the order Sun & Moon – equal and unequal

Did Adam name the fish? Sheis & Kayin each had a descendant name Chanoch The worries of the livelihood are like the Flood Go into the Teyvah (words of Torah & prayer) to be saved Parsha of Noach at the beginning of Mar Cheshvan Waters of Noach Erecting a lasting tower and building To receive the reward of others To see the good in others Feeling depressed does not assist in success of one’s mission When darkness itself becomes light Do not see the bad in others Survival is not enough Command was for Noach to busy himself with the Ark The revelation of intellect for what purpose The Flood allowed an increase state of connection The image of G-d includes all mankind Avrom begins a new era in the world “Generation of Avrohom” – era of his monotheistic ideals Understanding the ages of people in the Torah Remembering of Noach is the beginning of the Covenant Even if not possible, one should still make an attempt Flood waters can be a punishment or a blessing Go out and transform the world The waters fulfill a purpose, but G-d wants the “dry land” Populate the world with physical and spiritual children Two distinct covenants Avrohom, Dovid and Moshe initiated new services

B’nai Noach – basic service; Jews additional holiness Generations that do not require the sign of the Covenant Need to rise above limitations (even of the G-dly soul) Go out even form the boundaries of holiness Why did Avrohom wait to do the Mitzvah of Milah? How does one go up in the middle of going down? Maaser comes from the service of Yitzchak Prayer & blessing; each has its advantage The covenant made by each Jew is the actual covenant of Avrohom Avrohom received the reward of the 10 previous generations The Avos set the pattern, like a child does while young Parshas Lech Lecha combines the strengths of the prior Parshios A person is born to toil; toiling leads to a person’s greatest joy Two promises about Eretz Yisrael were made to Avrohom Avrohom’s focus on wealth when going down to Egypt A Jew’s inner will is to do for the sake of G-d (not for rewards) Lech Lecha and the 7th of Cheshvan teaches one to be a messenger of HaShem Why does details of Avram begin at age 75? General idea of the Bris and its specific quality The reish stays in Avrohom’s name, the Yud does not in Sarah’s Three altars of Avrohom prepared for the korbonos of the Jews Three Avos and their service of “perfection” Three-fold aspects of Milah and the connection to Avrohom The acquisitions of HaShem

Milah and Galus On-time Milah overrides Shabbos – 3 levels Story of the Rebbe RaShab Avrohom – drawing down from above; Yitzchak - movement up Avrohom’s service of kindness fulfills the purpose of man Avrohom established the concept of mesiras nefesh for chesed No miraculous intervention involved in Avrohom’s natural healing process; Fulfillment of Mitzvos by natural means 2 versions - story of the Rebbe Rashab Avrohom accomplished the avodah in perfection Higher than the ability of a person Avrohom’s way of kindness, needed to argue aggressively on behalf of others One’s permissible matters need to be for HaShem Wells of Avrohom and Yitzchak; proper place of love and awe Sometimes coercion helps; pressure breaks down barriers Lesson in Chinuch from the story with the Rebbe Rashab No rest while going from level to level A person must continue to be worthy Is this a holy name or a regular word? Avrohom opened the channels for mesiras nefesh Avrohom set the standard for Chesed by using his entire heart Self sacrifice for another Jew Advantage of circumcision on the eighth day 3 Jewish qualities (mercy, bashfulness, benevolence) led to bitul The Akeida led to the physical & spiritual achievements in the Bais HaMikdash Action of self sacrifice and changing a blessing to an oath Chinuch prepares us now in Galus for after the Redemption

S’dom & Amorah had greater punishment since sinned also between a person to another Avrohom is not questioning but sought clarification Sarah alludes to the body; Avrohom to the soul Rivkah was a “rose among thorns” Perfect oneself and perfect the world Every day one should strive for perfection Life of Sarah is like the life of people in general One needs to earn gifts B’nai Noach become a gadol at time of maturity not a set age The life of Sarah is the legacy passed to her descendants Three blessings/miracles of Rivkah & Sarah by occurrence and by level Three blessings/miracles of Rivkah and Sarah After the death of Sarah, Avrohom “added” in avodah The miracle of the lights of Chanukah and of Sarah & Rivkah Listing of years by Yishmael were to compare and provide praise to Yaacov Baalei Teshuvah can accomplish much in a single moment Three prayers that expressed G-d’s revelation in the world Chevron – avodah of the Leviim is chibur When one acts proper, one is guaranteed success The King should live forever Private ownership and public ownership Kefitzas haderech is connected to the Torah of the children A king has kingship in his essence (kingly DNA) Avrohom sought to make the field completely Jewish owned One must fill each day with spiritual accomplishments Central themes in the life of Yitzchak: fear of G-d; order of marriage, blessings not yet fulfilled

Miracles, a natural matter to a Jew The good precedes the bad What is the merit of a “hundred gates”? To perfect G-d’s world Giving the ability to give again Yitzchak has an effect that Eisav remains a Jew Holiness of the land in the time of the Avos Blindness to avoid Lashon HaRa Be stringent with oneself but give others extra room Eisav understood two things; blessings connected to Padan Aram and the need to go to Yishmael for a wife Yitzchak had a different avodah but appeared similar to Avrohom Eisav was not born bad Yaacov inherited Avrohom’s blessings Deep implications of Eisav’s questions Yitzchak continued Avrohom’s mission by creating spiritual offsprings (Toldos) In the outside world, one must remain connected to the essence Service of awe allows true bitul, which leads to closeness to G-d Accomplishment of overcoming one’s bad inclination is a great achievement Wells are dug by our effort and then the water flows into it The Avos lived 15 years together in this world; the first three Chabad Rebbes lived 24 years together in this world Connection of Avrohom to Torah & Mitzvos Two types of “bad” – apparent and one “mixed” with good G-d created humans to live in the physical world and purify it The pattern of our life: prepare by prayer and learning; continue to conduct oneself with holiness while in the

world A “gal” (pile) is not a total separation but lets some items through Yitzchak lost his eyesight and was unable to see bad in his home Marrying sisters shows a person needs to let go of a personal stringency for sake of others Active action (and not appeasement) to turn bad into good Source of the faith of Leah – naming of Reuven Yaacov’s Shmiras Shabbos lead to a reward without limits House of Yaacov is the third Bais HaMikdash Yaacov did not seek rewards, but the means to fulfill his purpose of serving G-d Sheep indicate the service of bitul After Tishrei the service of birurrim begins Yaacov prayed (and said 15 Shir haMaalos) to withstand Galus Conquering the Land can be totally effortless like sleep Nature of Lavan’s reward (100 or 1000) An employee devotes all one’s energies for the employer Angels accompany us even in Galus The Galus & redemption of the Mitteler Rebbe reflect those of Yaacov Unique reward of Shabbos Purpose of our existence in this world Usually one places the intellect prior to the emotions The effects of a Tzadik on his town What is the goal of the daily prayer services?

The dreams of Yosef and the avodah of every Jew Guarding means awaiting the fulfillment of the dreams Why was Tamar sentenced to burning? Binding bundles of grain - unity City on the side of the mountain A Jewish treasure hunt – a pearl among the sand & pebbles Yaacov’s "anguish of Yosef" leads to tranquility of Divine Sparks Shchem – a place prepared for Yosef’s misfortune No water (bitul) in the well Signet ring and the royal coat 5 shekels and half a shekel: atonement for the selling of Yosef Yaakov took a quill and recorded the day, the hour & the place; Yaacov saw one general service of HaShem Description of a fortunate man Why do Tzadikim suffer? General concept (Siman) for a later occurrence Yaacov believed in Yosef’s dream Incident of the baker and butler following the incident with the wife of Potifar accomplished two things Mesiras Nefesh without intellectual considerations

Jew always a stranger in a foreign land Yaacov needed a change in himself in order to face Eisav Tzedaka and Mishpat The Inner Dimension of Bar Mitzvah HaShem is found in the small items The older will serve the younger; Kings of Edom were not descendants of Eisav Eisav’s Kiss: secret to conduct during Galus A Jew should not feel at home in Galus Katnus as an instrument to reach higher Wholeness in all aspects Yaacov did not pay full price Two levels of Divine Providence: for the Jews and for the rest of Creation Idolatry exists to be eliminated One’s sins are forgiven at the Chupah Fighting the Yetzer and of connecting to G-d Temporary evil can become a friend Power of Jewish women (‫ )א‬Dreams led to the Galus of Egypt (‫ )ח‬Yosef attained greatness while being involved in worldly affairs True good requires effort and progressive ascension The end of one period is the beginning of another Type of bitul implied by this title Two prior occurrences is enough for a chazakah Yosef himself was bound the pact not to reveal that

he was sold Paroh supported Yosef’s request for the people to be circumcised Yosef’s advise to appoint someone was part of the interpretation of the dreams Yosef broke down due to what Binyomin said Even mundane is disrespectful to us Difference between Yosef & Levi about not having children during a famine Shabbos kept by Yosef was unique in that it permeated the world To know when to become humble One needs to do and to pray Only B’nai Eisav & Yishmael had reason to be offended by the appearance of Yaacov & his family True Teshuva does not come from external forces Only the haircut displayed being done in honor of the King Yosef was leaving clues to his identity
Responsibility for a Jewish child Jews were never without Yeshivos, even in difficult exile Hey lachem zera (Yosef’s order to the Egyptians to circumcise) For the sake of “Great Wealth” – purpose of exile Yehudah established a yeshivah since Torah is his occupation How is Dinah allowed to marry Shimon?

Goshen a foreign land that was “grasping” them away Speaking to the heart 70 souls indicate an ability to bear the difficulties of Galus A Jew inherits ability to be involved with the world and yet remain unified with HaShem The drawing close of Yehuda (deed) to Yosef (learning) Mutual guarantorship of the Jews indicates their true oneness The allusion of Yosef regarding the wagons Yaacov should not fear leaving, but can feel the pain Not raising one’s voice in prayer (‫ )עמידה‬to HaShem Yosef warns the brothers regarding learning on the way back Levels of Moshiach – Nasi & Melech Intellect is not everything Yosef did not initiate a new service yet he brought Yaacov’s potential into this world Yaacov reproached Shimon & Levi for killing Shechem Two opinions on whom Yaacov’s sons married The good life is – transcending worldly limitations Yaakov did bring down a hidden aspect of Moshiach Yaacov’s true life was revealed at its end Special connection between Yaacov and Efraim Difference in types of Teshuvah of Reuven & Yehuda Galus Mitzrayim was to prepare the Jewish people for Matan Torah The importance of the burial site A Jew’s actions can influence the time of redemption Menasheh and Efraim carried the aron of Yaacov as the sluchim of Levi & Yosef

Yosef taught his great grandchildren Torah To protect the Jews in Galus, Yaacov desired to be buried in Israel, while Yosef desired to be buried in Egypt Grabbing from an opponent indicates transformation from good to bad The tribes shared in the blessings of Yaacov due to their unity Rochel would forgo her burial place next to Yaacov due to her devotion to her children Yaacov concerned about Yosef’s sons Connection between beginning of Sefer Bereshis and its end and the beginning of Sefer Shmos: ‫כח מעשיו הגיד לעמו‬ Paroh’s tendency was to look down on Yosef Which is greater, the one making the blessing or the one answering amen?

Yocheved had a distinguished ancestry as Amram Nature of a miracle; dynamics of sin, punishment and repentance Concept of freedom at the Seder expressed by reclining & 4 cups Mixture of wild animals and its purpose; the first mention of setting apart the land of Goshen Redemption came as a result of Moshe’s question and G-d’s response Moshe & Aharon not just equal but they are one in their mission Only Moshe the leader of the generation has the capability to break through to Paroh Did Aharon only begin the plague of frogs or was he responsible for it’s spreading as well Going out of Egypt applies to all layers of the soul Sparks (explanations-Pardas) go in many directions from the hammer hitting the rock Three levels of denial of G-d; Bilam, Paroh, and Sanicherev Prophecy about Paroh and of Nevuchadnezzar Geulah: 3 Matzos and 4 cups Nature of a miracle within a miracle Revelation of ‫ 'הוי‬in Egypt though the service of man Paroh (also) hardened his own heart

Law of Pidyon of first-born donkey and of the loss of money of Cohanim Joy of redemption from Paroh sensed more profoundly by women In the war with Amalek, we went out to fight Children can turn the sea into a wall of protection Between a rock & a hard place, four approaches, one response The sea (and world) fulfill their condition to support the Jews Amalek caused a separation on many levels A Jew’s “profession” is to daven and learn Torah The nature of a Prophet Shabbos expresses all the world belongs to the one G-d Egyptians were excessively evil, like snakes, having a proven record Meat vs. Bread Advantages of bread from the heaven over bread from the earth Eruv Tavshilim in honor of Yom Tov or in honor of Shabbos?

The Altar remains pure due to bitul or due to its essence Moshe sanctifies those who are connected to him Holy of Holies refers to the Altar Pure refers to the oil and not to the olives The effect of the “snake” and the revealing Moshiach Nature of the law of not tearing of the Robe Service from great noise Moshe is Yisroel and Yisroel is Moshe; Moshe’s connection with the Jews is deeper than with the Torah Aifod, Me’il and the Choshen were essential even for entry into the holy area Rashi learns the Aifod as a function of extra modesty.

The connection to a Tzadik after his passing Aifod and Choshen garments of prophecy Ohel Moed - two levels of unity Names on stones according to Rashi & Rambam Displays unity of the Jews Uniqueness of the Sash Coin of fire; harmonize two opposing qualities Undecided is worse than idolatry Jew (half a Shekel) with G-d is complete Kiyor expresses that holiness can be opaque (mundane with good motives) To distance oneself from cruelty Multiple views to Torah allowed the possibility of breaking of Unity, eventually to the place of the sin of the Golden Calf. Moshe immediately bowed when HaShem first appeared Fiery coin indicates the manner of giving Sages disagree about compromise of the present vs. compromise of the future Moshe’s objections to G-d’s declaration to punish the Jews Mixed multitude were not all killed; power of Teshuvah Just coming into the Tabernacle (preparations) warranted a washing of the hands and feet The Girgashim left on their own, explains the question regarding two different verses Kesher of Tefillin - remembering one’s connection with HaShem which nullifies sins which result from forgetting This coin of fire makes physicality into spirituality Alluding to the holiness of the Kehunah Second Tablets and the broken Tablets together in the Aron; completeness and humility in the service of HaShem Kiddush Yadayim is the remedy to the soiled face Extra soul of Shabbos – change in the person in quality, as opposed to Yom Tov Moshe did not eat for 40 days can be understood in 3 ways When to say a thing in the name of the one who said the matter (segula or perhaps a law); concept of Kinyan Torah

Work, if only involves the external limbs, would be done of “itself” (tei’aseh) Two levels in “fixing” the sin of the Golden Calf Duty of diligently studying Torah Torah learners and their purpose Shabbos takes precedence over the Mishkan Betzalel was unique in giving his being into the making of the Aron Need for total bitul together with leadership Divine Presence in the Mishkan and in the Aron Entrance to courtyard is same size as the rest of the enclosure Unique donation of the talent of women to the Mishkan Actions only for the Kavod of the Beis HaMikdash doesn’t override the gezeiros of Shabbos VaYakhel – each Jew is gathered & is part of the whole Pekudei – Just as each item in the Mishkan is counted and is important, so with each Jew Service of the Rashbi – Torah is his profession Service of Rabbi Yosi – Birurim The Mishkan was a means of forgiveness on the Golden Calf Unique quality of women and their donations Holiness until the last peg Rashi understands even preparation of items to be given ‫לשמה‬ means any one or more item (of the15) is indicative of its being ‫לשמה‬ Equating of Ohaliav and Betzalel Fire for the sake of ashes Purpose of the Mishkan and Mikdash The Mishkan of Terumah-Tetzaveh was a spiritual mishkan The Mishkan of Vayakhel-Pekudei is the physical one; bringing the Essence into this lowly world A revelation that follows concealment is a superior revelation Earlier Parshas command to build Mishkan; these Parshas reflect the action of building; superiority of action over potential

VaYakhel – service of the created beings Pekudai - drawing down of G-d’s Glory The 8th day of inauguration as constant offerings given entirely to G-d The theme of entire Sefer Shmos is departing from darkness to light Moshe’s blessing brought down the Divine Presence which completed the Mishkan The Celestial Pawnshop The Divine Presence only entered the Mishkan on the eighth day with the direct command of G-d to set up the Mishkan Repetition in the Torah about the Mishkan indicates importance in two parts Mishkan & Mikdash each have unique attributes ‫נחלה‬vs. ‫מנוחה‬ When the darkness falls, we begin our journey Mishkan – Aron; 1st & 2nd Batei Mikdashim – Keneses Yisrael 3rd Bais HaMikdosh – HaKodesh Boruch Hu The power of physical deeds Moshe, Nasi of the Jews, unified and raised the offerings of the people Distinction between the first seven days of the inauguration and the eighth day Sometimes one can go out of the order If a person desires to draw close to G-d, then one must offer of oneself One small action sets the tone for the whole day Strength of action without knowing HaShem is the third party in all one’s transactions A sincere apology accounts for the total loss Expression of affection by G-d calling to Moshe, the Jews responded on Purim with “until one does not know” Adam was alone in his world; his conquering acquired all Our proper intention makes the difference whether from the perspective of the person (the little) or from the perspective of HaShem, the recipient (the lot) The need to recognize one’s greatness, yet remain humble

Parsha starts with voluntary sacrifice to indicate one’s good intentions are the basis of all of one’s offerings Transforming a dispute into a delicacy A sacrifice offering of wood – disputes of Rebbi & Rabanan, (literal vs. general) The leader brings to his generation a heightened awareness of the seriousness of an unintentional sin Purity of young children exemplifies the love between G-d and the Jewish people The wood sacrifice is the ultimate sacrifice, total consumption Korbanos require one to complete the substance and not necessarily the details Bringing from the best of items for Korbanos is a function of the Korban, and not of the person G-d always view the Jewish people with affection, since they are bound together G-d’s Will and the action is done without human assistance Process of atonement for a specific transgression Resolve for the future & remorse over the past Sin offering is for the past; Olah for the future Levels of the Revealed and of the Hidden Don’t remain without fire (passion) Give satisfaction to G-d Mitzvah which addresses the soul’s inner core Two types of Korbanos; two ways to deal with darkness Explanation of Rashi’s order of events requiring a Thanksgiving offering Quantity leads to quality The Path of the Flame; the inner is lit from the outer Appearance of a lion on the altar – A savage lion or a crouching lion (gevurah or chesed) The High Priest’s offering combines communal & personal Nosar is a function of the sacrifice being unfit for consumption at that point (and not of time)

Bris Milah reveals the holy connection and our inherent potential Contrast of Human existence; Value of our human efforts These 33 days of tahor blood, are days of tahor without limitation To be clean and to be tahor Disagreement in the higher worlds Different concepts in the matter if the man or woman provides seed first The night that shines like the day From going down one can reach to a greater height Mitzvah that protects Avodah below, which awakens miraculous ways to nullify natural influences Minhag that a pregnant woman does not act as a Kvater or as an Unterfirer Tzara’as is connected to Lashon HaRa, abuse of speech itself (more subtle yet far-reaching) Seeding and causing to grow a blessing A woman after birth is called tamai until she brings her sacrifices since until then she still lacks complete atonement Judgment with love A lesion in an area covered by hair Rashi as a result of Lashon HaRa Rambam says results from a denial of the basics of G-d Spreading of evil “outside” is an indicator of geulah Excluded from Tzara’as process: Areas of body not normally seen; A Cohen who can not see Great is the love of a Jew Nega’im are an example of G-d’s love for all Jews, even those that sin Jews always search for a miracle Niddah laws involve prohibition (evil appreciated by intellect and emotions); impurity by contrast refers to evil which can not be appreciated but is a degree that can not be removed

Even if afflicted with Tzara’as, a person will be “brought to the Cohen”; then, can repent and return to holiness In the matter of “only” the 11th day in the cycle for Zivus, it is not possible to become Zavah Gedolah ; nevertheless, Bais Shamai says still concerned since one goes after the potential Need specific teaching that the purification of the Metzora can not occur at night Standard definitions not according to the simple meaning A Jew’s essence is always remains pure Rashi learns that a Zav that sees two times is a different category than a Zav that sees three times One Jew can offer to achieve atonement for another Tzara’as of the houses displays the great goodness that is “locked up” Finding hidden treasures Every new level requires a new teshuvah Double guarding – decrees fulfill G-d’s Will Do not forsake this world A Jew needs a strong desire to connect to G-d like Aharon & his sons, while remaining in this world to complete His Will Praise of Aharon – wore special clothing for Yom Kippur not for his own greatness but due to a decree of the King All mitzvos are treated like decrees

The Cohen Gadol sees the ultimate purpose Teshuvah from love not only uproots one’s sins but transforms them into Mitzvos; How? In the Mitzvah of Teshuvah kaparah is a goal but not pivotal Three versus four levels of kaparah Rashi’s views on the Cohen Gadol’s clothes on Yom Kippur

When one’s disgrace is publicized and leads others not to commit the same error, not only is the community saved, but also that person receives retroactive merit Combining elevation and humility The seventh influences the six that follow In G-d’s preferred system, even spiritual “revenue” must be earned Shmitah and Yovel in Avodas HaShem Why would one think if sold to a non-Jew one could act like him? The year of Shmitah is like the day of Shabbos Three laws in Ribis express a Jew’s relationship with money Rabbi Yishmael –orderly service of Tzadikim Rabbi Akiva – service of Baal Teshuvah Shmitah is connected to speech as an action Failure to observe Shmitah leads to progressively increased problems, but G-d promises an uplifting (Geulah) Our job is not to sit on the mountain but to bring the Torah to the land fulfilling purpose of a Dwelling Place below Slave’s freedom achieves ultimate when seventh year of sale coincides with the Shmitah year Master must provide for the total material needs of the servant Purpose of Bitul – to not feel it Acquisitions in a spiritual life The question of “what should we eat for 3 years” is a question from a Ben Chochom, requesting details (not a challenge) A Jew plants and has faith Verse has 2 parts (a general and a specific): Jews are my slaves that I took out of Egypt Jews are not to be sold by public auction Merciful without end All Mitzvos require Kabolas Ol The Tochacha are very lofty blessings not expressed directly Pnimiyus HaTorah reveals that all suffering is manifestly good Study of Torah needs to be like letters engraved in stone Complete removal of bad, or do we attempt to transform it

Rosh Chodesh Av is an important time to commit again to daily learning The daughters of Tzelafchad hree were listed by age; the two previous according to their wisdom, which was equal Similarity of the Goral and the Ten Commandments The boundaries of the Land of Israel primarily to delineate where the mitzvos of the Land apply Recount the events of the journey and make known the loving kindness of HaShem Land of Israel possesses two special qualities: its kedusha and its being chosen by HaShem Speaking & learning bring a matter into reality All that are alive are in movement Connection between years of Aharon’s life and with the custom to say ‫ 'הללוי‬in response in Hallel Cohen Gadol uses both the service of the Tzadik and of the Baal Teshuva The Nasi represents the entire group plus is concerned about the needs of each individual Two reasons why the accidental killer stays in the City of Refuge until the death of the Cohen Gadol Rashi uses the word ‫ מצר‬to indicate the concept of restrictions leading to higher quality Accidental murderer cannot leave the City of Refuge even to save a life This parsha and Shabbos Chazon are the joining of two opposites Greater joy on the Shabbos of the Three Weeks To understand G-d’s words develops a deeper bond The armed soldiers of the Jews succeeded in the merit of Tefillin Both the Parsha and the Haftorah begin with rebuke and end with Geulah The vision of the Bais HaMikdash from Above produces an ongoing effect to improve oneself Hidden reproach, revealed love Yehoshua’s role to lead the people Moshe’s Ahavas Yisrael was so great that he allowed the Jews to refine themselves Moshe’s purpose was to transmit the Torah Understanding of G-d’s blessings Moshe connected the limited with the limitless Even a non-Jewish King can respect Mesiras Nefesh

Good intentions make all the difference The people needed to take Har Sinai to Eretz Yisrael Holiness of Ever HaYarden comes from the request by the Jews Banded together strengthens the forces of evil and of good Everyone can see the Galus as part of the Geulah The lack of faith removed the possibility of supernatural conquest without weapons Two definitions of ‫ נבונים‬for the Mishkan and for a Judge Weeping for all generations Our task to combine two forms of avodah – constant and new Tisha b’Av on Shabbos provides full expression of the day A (spiritual) city of refuge for those disconnected from “life” – Torah and Mitzvos Definition of Aleph A great voice is eternally heard A teacher is a “father” showing devotion to the students Tefillin appear as one Mitzvah in Shmos; in D’varim it appears as two Mitzvos st 1 Beis HaMikdash had its unique qualities as does the second one; the third one will fuse all the unique qualities Spiritually keep Shabbos and be partners with HaShem Shema expresses the unity out of diversity Bitul (‫ )קטן‬in one’s learning From the hand to the head Neighbors have effects for good or its opposite Rabbi Akiva saw the future outcome and was happy Two definitions: supplication or requesting a gift We have the power to open the hidden or to tear apart the limits G-d permeates from the high spiritual realm to the lowest physical environment One’s Torah teacher is one’s life, even to the student that is searching In the future, we will take our reward (not just receive)

“Normal” forgetting does not separate one from the Torah Love and fear in one heart Moshe set aside three cities of refuge The Head tefillin which is the main part of the Mitzvah stresses the concept of consistency The Galus can cause a growth in worldly thoughts Mahn cultivates an inner appetite for spirituality Heel can have two implications reflecting our avodah at the end of Galus Galus has an advantage (in the long run) The Luchos and a Tzadik A woman is required to make the blessings on Torah Some prioritize the performance of Mitzvos, thus treating some Mitzvos lightly, casting them “under one’s heel” The one completing the Mitzvah receives credit for entire Mitzvah The gift that Moshe Rabbenu received Torah & Mitzvos beyond one’s obligation Special segulah of the mezuzah is safeguarding even outside the home In Seder Birchas HaNehenin, the goal of the Alter Rebbe is to teach clear behavior in practical action When does HaShem accept a bribe? Unique spelling expresses the Divine quality of the Tablets Mezuzah expresses an awareness of HaShem “outside” Mesiras Nefesh of the Sheppard of Yisrael Teshuvah is the one item with which one can “bribe” HaShem Prayer with ‫כובד ראש‬ Signs of Kashrus in daily life

Ger Mitzri today may marry into the congregation Moshe’s prophecy is Torah Who is able to bear witness regarding G-d? King’s purpose: improve Jew’s fear of Heaven; and to assist the mind of Jews to rule over their heart Purpose of Cities of Refuge in the times of Moshiach Like a tree, a person is deep rooted (character) and powerful (emotions) The Eglah Arufah is different from korbanos in 3 ways and three explanations of how it works Roles of the Judge and the Officer Rabbinic enactments are not limited to specific mitzvos Purpose of legal system to reveal the good in each Jew A Judge shares responsibility to enforce the law A person is not the owner of one’s body The Geulah is a certainty Going out to war to subdue your body and animal soul Guardrail necessary for spiritual service One must warm up to Torah and Mitzvos to overcome the coldness of Amalek in one’s life Mitzvos do not require intent; transgressions require intent The power of an “easy” Mitzvah “Divorce” can reveal the connection that existed It is possible to be victorious without war Remember in order to forget Benefits of Mitzvos in the world applies to mitzvos between one person to another A guardrail especially needed in beginning a new lifestyle Kiddushin requires first an exchange of kesef Remembrance of Shabbos and of Amelek share concepts

The Ramak’s passing due to the tree of knowledge, not due to the snake The Bais HaMikdash requires a guardrail, even though a synagogue does not Different understanding of the Mitzvah of not plowing two animals together A quarrel can not lead to peace Shatnez permitted in the Bais HaMikdash, but not other mixtures Why making a vow is as if building a private altar? Reward for our service is at completion of entire project No mixture of soul powers Employee’s right to eat while at work G-d is not separated from the Jewish people Kiddushin changed after the Giving of the Torah Faith in G-d’s blessings and service in all aspects of life The Admonitions are meant as blessings in disguise, that everything is good Walk in His paths Complete good could only happen after everyone received their portion G-d separates the Jewish people on a daily basis The declaration accompanying the First-Fruits offering, is a thanksgiving for the complete settlement of the Land While involved in the physical world, make a special effort to see HaShem’s Kindnesses The bringing of the First Fruits elicits a response from G-d Hidden blessings of the Admonitions Indicates a complete and full entrance The Jewish people are like a hidden treasure G-d has “regrets” on galus The First-Fruits an allusion to the neshama Ramban’s understanding of the differing rules on disqualification of hewn stones Two possible times for Bikurim; 2 levels of thanks One can be similar to HaShem by going beyond limitations

Understanding after 40 years - methodology Key to rain and the key to livelihood Reading the Parsha prior to Rosh HaShana displays unity These 40 days are for additional acts of tzedakah Every Jew has a unique advantage allowing each one to be a guarantor for the other HaShem is in Galus with us, and will only leave Galus with the return of every Jew G-d blesses the month of Tishrei after the Jews begin their service Written and Oral Torah are one whole unit A new type of convert – similar to those of Yehoshua Blessing followed by a curse, causes a deep Teshuvah Special covenant with G-d (each Rosh HaShana) All Jews are connected throughout (space and) time Free choice results from our soul be rooted in G-d Ever-lasting covenant, binding on both sides
