09. ויאמר לו יהונתן מחר חודש ה’תשמ”א

ויאמר לו יהונתן מחר חודש ה’תשמ”א, Class One. Shabbos is higher than Rosh Chodesh and Rosh Hashana as it is completely above time (while Rosh Chodesh and Rosh Hashana are higher ideas IN time but not above it). The strength for מחר חודש always comes from Shabbos- what is completely above time.

ויאמר לו יהונתן מחר חודש ה’תשמ”א, Class One.

ויאמר לו יהונתן מחר חודש ה’תשמ”א, Class Two. This is the classic Ma’amar of Machar Chodesh. The degree of Bittul determines the extent of the newness to follow. Rosh Chodesh follows the total disappearance of the old moon and sets up a completely new one. After Shabbos this idea is compounded, since Shabbos is above time altogether the renewal is absolute. This is illustrated by an understanding of the Alter Rebbe on the possuk ארץ חטה ושעורה וגפן ותאנה ורמון ארץ זית שמן ודבש.

ויאמר לו יהונתן מחר חודש ה’תשמ”א, Class Two.
