23. Ani Lidodi 5712

Class One. This is the first of two classes on this classic Ma’amar, outlining the stages of the davening journey from submission and acceptance, to feeling, reason (of the animal and then divine Souls,) and total Bittul in the Amida. Class Two. The second class on this wonderful Ma’amar explains why Davening alone is not...

21. Ani Lidodi 5715.

Class One. Introduction, what is davening? the ‘ladder’ of Davening, Mode Ani, Psukei DiZimra, Birchos Krias Shma, Shma and the Amida. Class Two. Chapter 4. (This is a difficult Shiur).

22. Achas ShaAlti 5715.

Class One. The entire Ma’amar can be seen to discuss five ideas (levels) of Avodah. 1) Birurim through avodah without Torah and Mitzvos. 2) The Kavana of Mitzvos gets us Schhar (Mimalei) in Gan Eden. The Mitzvah itself acts as a garment to conduct the light. 3) The Bracha that goes along with the Mitzvah...

43. Ani Lidodi 5737

Ani Lidodi 5737.This is a typical Aniu Lidodi with an atypical direction: the reason for the King going to the field is to give the strength to elevate the desert.To transform the desert which is less than Adam and reveal there the idea of Ein Sof which is higher than Adam. Melech (King) is the...

36. אני לדודי ה'תשל"ט

36 אני לדודי ה’תשל”ט This Ma’amar is quite typical for מאמרי אני לדודי. He says that only special people are in the field to greet the king, but after Teshuva everyone gets to greet the king in field. The grounding on the “King in the Field’ is Torah and Mitzvos behaviorally.

41. אני לדודי ודודי לי ה'תש"מ.

Ani Lidodi 5744

We feed Him and He feeds us. On the lower level He must feed us, but on the higher level we feed Him.

Ani Lidodi 5746.

Elul is the heart, seeing the face of the king which gives so much and nothing at all. Why Ani Ledodi is connected to parshas Re’ei (seeing) and there is no Shoftim (judgement) in Likutei Torah of Elul.

Ani Lidodi 5747 (1).

This Maamar explains the idea of “Melech BaSade'” for those who haven’t sinned. Those who have are in the Midbar from where they find Hashem (uvikashtem Misham) and it is “tzorech aliya”.

Ani Lidodi 5747 (2).

This maamar explains that the two Maamarim ”Ani Ledodi” in Likutei Torah explain the revelation of the thirteen midos Harachamim in the order of “Klal Prat uKlal”.
