Class Two, Eighth Sicha This Sicha continues discussing Tzedaka for Oholei Yosef Yitzchok Lubavitch, arguing that it is the ארץ צבי outside Eretz Yisroel and the more students you bring in the more "room" (money and other resources) there will be.

The difference between בירורים and נסיונות. בירורים corrects both the person and the object one is dealing with. נסיונות is so deep a test from so deep an evil that the good within has become evil. Accordingly, the correction in the person alone because the item being corrected has no reality as it is all קליפה. In this מאמר the רבי adds that there must be an elevation in the קליפה even in נסיונות. This idea appears in the Rebbe's Ma'amar but not in the previous Rabbeiim's Ma'ararim.

 - Class Three
Class One. This class has a lengthy introduction about Yud Bais Tamuz and the idea of Mesiras Nefesh. The part of the Ma'amar learned is the beginning and the end. The point is that the salvation of Dovid from his challenges and his receiving divine help depends on actually seeing his enemies as a challenge not to be destroyed but transformed! This explains both halves of the Possuk. Class Two. The alternative is זמירות היו לי חוקיך בבית מגורי This is Dovid saying how Torah gave him joy under difficult conditions when he realized how each detail of Torah changes the entire creation. It is also him disclosing how the Torah was זמירות מלשון לזמר עריצים to cut away his opponents. This is why Dovid was pushed, because the point is not to defeat the enemy, but to transform them as indicated in the פסוק on which this Ma'amar is based הוי' לי בעוזרי וגו. Class Three. There is a long introduction to the class about the five מאמרים the רבי ריי"צ said in eight days around the time of his liberation. This class discusses תפילה, and how Tefilla brings the person to the level of חוקיך and the level of הוי'ה. The poor person has only one interest: to speak directly to the king; which is the biggest thing imaginable.
עשרה שיושבים ה'תשמ"ב 1
Based on the Previous Rebbe's Ma'amar from 5688. Just as ten Jews are needed for a Miyan and the affect reveals the 13 attributes of Mercy Similarly, when one learns with ten Jews it reveals the 13 attributes of the interpretations of Torah (Torah SheBa'al Peh)

Class One. This class on this Ma'amar repeats and organizes the ideas that show the similarity between Davening and Learning with a Minyan. Class Two. This class focus on the asymmetry of Torah with a Tzibur and Terfilla with a Tzibbur. Davening is more important in terms in reaching up. Torah is more important in terms of what we get back (like Birchas Kohanim).

Class One. More on the advantage of Tefilla over Torah it is the real source of Bittul Of being an Eved. Class Two. Another point regarding Torah study, that in bringing light downward it is fulfilling the divine plan in creation and as such it reaches "Atzmus" Thus placing Torah in as much as it achieves the purpose in creation above the advantage of Tefilla.

Thus Bracha is different than other ברכות הנס as it i s also (primary) about the spiritual Journey, this is the reason for the change of format etc. This struggle has four categories (the latter finer than the former) all connected to the Neshana coming down here.
שאו ידיכם קדש תשמ"ג
 - MP3
 - PDF
One of the Ma'amarim of the redemption of 12 Tamuz 5687. The issue is that hands are connected to action (the lowest thing) and holiness is the highest thing, how do these two come together. The Rebbe explains that the purpose is to do actions, hands, and raise them up to the levels of 1) emotion, 2) intellect, 3) will. Then draw the holiness down from an even higher level of Havaya. This is especially achieved in Eretz Yisroel through Am Yisroel.

Class One. The Gemarah that links this Possuk to Torah Avoda and Gemilas Chasadim. The Rebbe links this to 'the three pillars on which the world stands'. These three are affecting one's 1) mind, 2) body, 3) world. The narrow world (the person) and the greater world. Yerida Tzorech Aliya of the Neshama, from a state of Amida (standing motionless, unable to move), into this world with a body animal Soul etc. Class Two. This class explores the 'Aliya' after the Yerida: the ascent from Tzadik to Ba'al Teshuva. The ascent from being a Nivra to being 'Tehota Hi'; the Ma'amar also explained that this ascent is a Chidush, meaning to say, something so new, that it doesn't even exists in the potential of the Neshama which is why where the Ba'al Teshuva stands, the Tzadik can't possibly stand! We explored the difficulty in understanding this and explained that the 'Tahor' the Ma'amar speaks of here is actually higher than K'dusha. The Neshama is both Godly and an entity onto itself. This makes this version of 'Yerida Tzorach Aliya' (from Tzadik to Ba'al Teshuva) quite different form the normal idea of Aliya from Tahor to Kodesh.

This is the first of two maamarim based on this Bracha. The Rebbe RaYaTz said this maamar twice in 5687 also. The two maamarim compliment one another and some ideas are explained at length in the first and abbreviated in the second and other aspects are developed more in the second. In this first Maamar he explains the idea of 'LiChayavim', that the bad itself is transformed to good. He explains that the four categories who make this bracaha mean four spiritual ills; weak, Disfunctional, spiritually lonely, and distracted by materialism. The Rebbe adds that the Bracha is for someone who is in Sakana which means a Rasha, and that the Koach of this Bracha heals even him! Moreover, a Tzadik can also achieve this 'Lachayavim Tovos'.
Yehiu Hashem Elokeinu Imanu 4745.
 - MP3
 - PDF
The Ma’amar is based on the Sicha of 3 Tamuz 5687, Yehi Hashem Elokeinu Imanu, that is a Tefilla, though it begins with a Posuk. It discusses the order of the Kuntres 12 Tamuz observing that it begins with Galus comparing Yidden to grapes that do the best when removed from their roots, he goes on to talk about Geula and finally that Yidden adding to Havaya, by revealing the Tziyon (Yechida) of the Neshama through this Mesiras Nefesh.
Baruch HaGomel (2) 5745.
 - PDF
 - Class One
 - Class Two
Class One. 1) The Neshama in a Guf is a Golus, 2) In this world in Galus is a double Galus, 3) the four that must say Gomel, that spiritually refers to a sinner doing Teshuva, is the ultimate Yerida, which brings the ultimate Aliya. This yerida is so low, and its' potential Aliya so great that it is represented by the acronym 'Chayim'. Class Two. The second half of this Maamar connects Baruch HaGomel to 12 Tamuz, which the Rebbe calls the 'aschalta Digiula' of Moshiach! he explains this by saying that because the darkness the Frierdike Rebbe overcame was the worst type, it sets in motion the final good. He connects it to Tehillim kapital 106: Moshiach, two worlds and Amain.
Hodu LaHashem Ki Tov 5746.

Yerida Tzorech Aliya. The four categories that need to praise and submit to Hashem, how are they in spiritual and refined terms. A. Yehi Hashem Elokeinu Imanu 5746, Part One. (5772/2012). Based on the Frierdike Rebbe's Maamar from 5685 (1925). The descent into Golus affects that the high become higher and the low lower. On the one hand that is bad but on the other hand, the fall on the lower end allows the elevation of the newly discovered lowliness. Mattan Torah raised Yidden up and allowed what is in the world to fall lower, and this is Yerida Tzorech Aliya as we can now elevate the newly isolated and lower lowness! B. Yehi Hashem Elokeinu Imanu 5746, Part Two. (5772/2012). We pray to be like our ancestors though we are [in our Avoda] on a higher level than they were. The reason for this prayer is because we are asking Hashem to allow us to feel the lofty levels we reach as a result of being born after Mattan Torah. Just as they felt the (lesser) levels they achieved.
Se'u Yedeichem Kodesh 5747. (5772/2012).
 - MP3
The Zohar explains that two Havayos in one Possuk should be understood as two Havayos (DilAila and Diltata- higher and lower). Moreover as one grows they discover many levels of higher and lower Havayos and what is higher to one level is low to the level above itself etc. [Levels of infinity]. This Possuk Se'u Yideichem Kodesh discusses raising up what is low (the hands and of course, the feet) and the higher levels that are achieved through this effort.

33 דעו כי הוי' הוא האלוקים ה'תשל"ט
 - PDF of the Ma'amar
 - מאמר דעו כי הוי' הוא האלוקים ה'תשל"ט
דעו כי הוי' הוא האלוקים התשל"ט This is a י"ב תמוז Ma'amar For the Rebbe RaYaTz beginning his hundredth year, when he would recite פרק ק in Tehillim. The point of the Ma'amar is to explain that we עמו וצאן הרעיתו were tasked to affect הוי' הוא האלוקים in the world through work. The idea of אלוקים is טבע which is also G-dly (the idea of לא ישבותו- that nature is constant) is connected to כלים and the יצר הרע and נפש הבהמית; it must be joined with הוי'ה which is G-dliness above nature, which is connected to Miracles, אור and the יצר טוב and נפש האלוקית. They are joined through עבודה done in this world especially in גלות and most specifically during times of גזירה. At the end of time (now) there is the need for and the presence of תנועה של מסירת נפש, this redeems Yidden of all generations even משה רבינו and his generation.

Hilchos Beis Habechira (5779/ 2019) Give at Beis Hamidrash Linashim Ubanos 770 Class One: Introduction and Perek 1 Halacha 1-4 The Beis Hamikdash is about peace and work (Tefilla; Korbanos) All בתי מקדש are connected, they are all both a משכן and a מקדש (which is the two levels of שכינה and קדושה). Temporary, semi-permanent and absolutely permanent. Why the RaMbaM expalins only the design of the second Beis Hamikdash and not the Mishkan and first and third Batei Mikdash. Class Two: Perek 1 Halachos 5-7 1) This class discusses the "עיקר" of the building: 1) Holy of holies, 2) Holies 3) The great Hall 4) and the Courtyard. (everything else is details). They represent the way human beings live down here:1) Yard 2) Living area 3) Private area, and the three fires that represent the three worlds: 1) BY"A 2) Atzilus 3) AIn SOf 2) The vessels their purpose and place 3) Rooms and jobs, partitions and de-markers. Class Three: Perek 1 Halachos 8-12. 1) The stones from which the Beis HaMikdash was built, they used metal in pre-cutting the stones, but it needed to be done before they arrived on location where the Beis HaMikdash stood. The Mizbeach's stones couldn't encounter metal at all ever. Metal "shortens people's lives" 2) There was no exposed wood at all in the Beis HaMikdash, (this is indirectly connected to the prohibition of לא תטע לך אשרה כל עץ אצל מזבח הוי' אלוקיל). 3) Tiled floor. 4) it must be as big and beautiful as we can afford. 5) who what where and when was the (mitzvah of) building the Beis HaMikdash. Class Four: Perek 1 Halachos 13-20. 1) The Mizbeach also needed to be perfect, in fact it couldn't encounter metral at all and needed to be utterly smooth. They had to "dig deep" to find stones worthy of the Mizbeach. 2) The Kevesh (ramp) of the Mizbeach protected it from any kind of the opposite of Tznius. 3) all the Keilim needed to be of metal, gold if it was affordable. 4) the vessels and materials in the Besi HaMikdash were prepared initially "lishma" for the sake of the Beis HaMikdash. Class Five: Perek 2 Halacha 1-9. The Mizbeach 1) It's spot was very precise, it is where the greatest people even brought their Karbanos, Yitzvhok was tied there in "the Mikdash" 2) The prophets who knew the location, the measurements and the permission to offer Karbanos before the Nayis was built. 3) The height of the Mizbeach: 10 Amos, 58 Tefach as there were two types of Amma (big (6 Tefach) and small (5 Tefach)) used here. 4) The midway point 29 Tefach, Chut Sikra. 5) The Kranos on each edge the blood of Chatas placed. Class Six: Perek 2 Halachos 10-15 1) the Yesod was cut out (so that it should be only in Shevet Biyaamin 2) The two holes (like nostrils) at the base of the Mizbeach. all the blood was drained out there, The Nachal Kidron and people paid to have rights to the blood etc. 3) Shittin that is where the blood actually went down beneath the Azarah. 4) The Three כבשים (ramps) and their uses. Class Seven: Perek 2 Halachos 16-18 1) Mizbeach was solid, 2) Made with a mix (like a cement mix) poured into a mold 3) The four things that must be: A. square B. corners, C.
