Ulkachtem Lachem 5739 [Introduction: there are two sides to the purpose of creation: 1) Narrow, it is about Yidden and everything and everybody else serves this goal 2) Broad, the purpose is the world as a whole, and as such everything and everybody serve Hashem directly.] Tishrei has two dimensions A בכסא B ליום חגינו[ The first is the narrow (about Yidden) idea the second is the broad (about the world) idea. This is why Sukkos is so connected to Goyim and הללו את ה' כל גויים. Dancing with the Lulov as a sign of victory represents this.

This class discusses אמונה which is מקיף and how we affect התישבות in this מקיף as the פסוק says בסוכות תשבו.

Class One. Korbanos and Ketores both involve fire (light) and shade (darkness that is above light). But in Korbanos it is about the fire and the (visible heat and) light; and in Ketores it is about the shade and darkness. Korbanos: 1) bring close, 2) are a service of the mind, 3) reach -only- the outer heart, 4) uplifts what is Kosher. Ketores: 1) makes one, 2) is a service that goes beyond understanding, 3) reaches the innner heart, 4) elevates and totally transforms -even- the severe Kelipos. The shade in the Sukka is from the cloud of Ketores Yom Kippur, which is completed by the Lulav (and other Mitzvos that follow).

Class Two. The process of separating the good from bad and uplifting the good out of the bad in Klipa, reveals a higher G-dliness than exists in Kedusha itself. This is true of בירור ניצוצי תהו in general, and more specifically when clarifying and elevating the sparks of the severe Klipos, as is the case with Ketores, that has... 1) Non- Kosher material in it 2) is in the number 11, which s linked to Klipa and more. This is especially true on Yom Kippur. The difference between a potential revelation and an actual one מעלת פועל על כח.

Class One. This part of the Ma'amar deals with the meaning of בסוכות תשבו שבעת ימים. Taking something that is in and of itself temporary and making it permanent. It is true of סוכה and of all Mitzvos. It is -really- the prescription for דירה בתחתונים. Class Two. In this class the discussion is about כל האזרח בישראל ישבו בסוכות. The Rebbe explains that this is a reference to the Yechida. Though it will be revealed primarily when Moshiach comes we can have a taste of this now too.

The system of unity (as explained here) is three steps: 1) division, 2) unification, 3) Oneness (where no parts exist at all, as all the parts are part of one complex purpose). In this מאמר this idea plays itself out in four things: 1) The harvest, 2) The Sukka, 3) The Four Minim Lulav etc, 4) Torah.

Sukkos is all about Achdus in various aspects: 1) The Four Minim are all naturally inclined towards divisiveness, but they are never the less unified; they become the basis for the Achdus of Lulav: joining together for the Mitzvah of Daled Minim. 2) The Sukka itself unifies (in theory) all the Jews in the world. 3) The seven days of ordinary time are unified and joined together into this Yom Tov.

This short Ma'amar explains Sukkos through the Possuk Basukos Tashvu... Kol HaEzrach... Yeshvu... 1) The Sukka gives us an Ohr Makif, 2) We sit and settle the Ohr Makif to be Pnimi, 3) We have Da'as which brings to Achdus, as represented by the Sukka and the four minim, 4) This reveals the highest level of the Neshama called 'Ezrach'.

On Sukkos the Achdus of Sukka (simple) raises us up and the unity of the four kinds (complicated) creates a deeper unity still. All this is rooted in humility. This allows us to be worthy of very great blessings - "Like our Fathers".
